Oh, we had a nice shabbos! Out for dinner (for a un-Thanksgiving turkey dinner that couldn't be beat), here for lunch with girls, and even though pretty much all the food was store-bought (Yoav made the chulent, I baked the cake from a mix), it was so nice to be HOME together, ya know?
The girl was yummy cute in her new clothes too! And she ate CHULENT for the first time!! She slept really, really well afterwards, because hey, that's what you do after you eat chulent!
I am proud to say that I'm just about compulsive-mommy-ed out. From when she was a month old until we went to America this summer, I kept a compulsive Excel sheet of her eatings and sleepings, etc. Since we came back until now, I've kept a compulsive website of eatings, sleepings, etc (although I have NOT used the diaper function or anything - if you want to view my complusivity, please feel free to look at this public version and make fun of me accordingly.
But anyway, I've just about had enough of keeping track of everything. For medicine, it was great, but IY"H we can be done with being sick for awhile!! For solids, when she was just starting with them and I wanted to be very careful of allergies, it was great, but she's eaten a wide variety of things now and she's been fine, bli ayin hara, so I think.. I think it may be time to wean off the compulsive mothering!!
Be proud of me please. By keeping track of her on the computer, I was asserting some level of control over her. By ceasing to do so, I'm realizing I ain't got diddly control over her Highness.
A good week to you all!
