Wow, what a weekend. Poor Vi has been suffering since Wednesday and we're still not out of the woods. It's been a challenging several days, but also included a major revelation. I'm wishing all of you and your little ones excellent health! Meanwhile, here are some handy/fun ideas to consider in this week's Weekly Blueprint:
February 13: Pack Valentine's for school. If Valentine's prep has fallen off your radar, don't fret! Check out these free, fast, and adorable robot printables. And if you're volunteering in your kid's class for Valentine's, arm yourself with a few of these cute classroom party ideas.
February 14: Hug or call someone you love. I'm planning on recording a short Valentine's video greeting from the girls to email to the grandparents.
February 16: Bring your baby to enjoy some art.
February 16: Katherine Stone educates on perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
February 17: The Mitten, brought to life.
February 17: Come garner great ideas during a live chat I'm leading on taking 10 minutes for yourself every day.
February 17: A technicolor singalong.
February 17-25: Perfect for Bugs Bunny fans.
At your leisure: Print and hang some new family photos. (Personal goal: get photos of Violet on the wall before her first birthday next month!)
At your leisure: Engage in some preventative medicine -- whatever works for you, whether it's a yoga class, upping your vitamin C, or going to bed an hour earlier.
At your leisure: Make some comfort food. Like this easy, cream macaroni and cheese.
At your leisure: And if you've been having a tough go of things as we have, make a yummy sweet treat. I think it's time for me to make these peanut butter bliss cookies.
