Sunday Lately :: Week 7

Katy McKinley1 Comment

Sorry I'm late with this one, unexpected sickness from our little one threw a wrench into my timely plans. But I'm here now, so let's do it.  Sunday Lately is live!  

This week's themes: Doing, Appreciating, Designing, Humming, Expecting.

Doing: A lot of extra-sympathetic parenting this morning.  And last night.  Louis was fine all day yesterday and then right before bed he said his tummy was hurting.  Minutes later, he was throwing up.  And then again.  And then again and again and again.  Team McKinley was up tending to our sweet little one multiple times during the night.  I'm pretty sure I slept on top of a wet spot on our bed.  Gross, I know.  But that's parenting for you.  Sometimes you catch vomit in your hands, sometimes you sleep on it.  Real talk, people.

Appreciating: The free and fun activities that Wheeling has to offer us.  Last night (of course, before all of the puking and sickness even showed a hint of being around) we went to a free play at the Wheeling Jesuit University's drama department.  They did a depiction of Aladdin and it was really interactive and very cute.  Louis loved it.  He was raising his hand to give suggestions when they asked for it and was hiding behind things alongside Aladdin at times.  I'd say kiddo really enjoyed it.  As did we.

Designing: My website.  And having mild breakdowns every time I run into something or some sort of coding that I don't think fits into my vision.  I wish I had the money to hire a web designer to create my entire shop for me.  Not gonna happen.  This is a Katy-only job and it's taking me forever.  I need to just set aside one day in which all I do is work on it until I can do a soft opening.  I'm excited about how it's looking so far...I just need to get it finished.  ::sigh::

Humming: "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" by Whitney Houston.  I forgot how much I loved this song until it came up on my Amazon radio.  I immediately added it to my playlist and I've only listened to it now about ten million times.  It's good stuff.

Expecting: A few tears from Louis (and perhaps me as well) when we leave next weekend.  Bennett and I have been hired to photograph one of my good friend's weddings in Minneapolis next Saturday and we just can't take Louis with us.  It wouldn't make sense.  So he's staying with Grandma all weekend and this will be the longest he's been away from both his parents at once.  Granted, he'll still be in our house with his Grandma that he loves...but nighttimes I think will be a big deal for him.  It's only two nights and one full day of absence.  But I'm still a little nervous about the whole thing.
