looks can be deceiving.
my kid has been up since 3:30 and so have i.
and at 3:30 in the morning, she’s not nearly as cute as what is captured above.*
and i’m still not eating sugar. or cheese. or bread. or a whole list of other really good food. like cookies. i want a cookie.**
and so, i think i’ll meet you back here on monday. because mama needs a little break.
and because this too, shall pass.
in the meantime, i just ordered THESE.
because i’ve been up since 3:30 this morning.
and i can’t eat cheese.
*that’s not exactly true. while i would really really really prefer a child who sleeps, it is pretty melt-my-heart-cute when, i walk in her room and she immediately sits straight up and starts singing and signing the more we get together together together. but still, i’d rather she sleep.
**this whole paleo thing is actually going quite well and while in this very moment, the only thing that i want more than sleep is a mrs. fields semi-sweet chocolate chip cookie and a fountain soda diet coke (go ahead and judge) i’ve actually been feeling really great. no real cravings (which is insane because there are few people who eat more carbs and more sugar than me) and instead i’ve been enjoying new recipes. ABN has been doing great too. there’s been absolutely no cheating (i’m as shocked as you are) even when i went to my favorite mexican place – which, for the record, is totally not worth it if you can’t eat anything. live and learn
