Escape Artist & My First 5k of the Year

Is it me, or is this week just flying by? Maybe it’s the fact that today is my last day of work for the week. I wish I had something super fun planned on Friday for Madelyn and myself but I will be finishing up some painting in her new big girl room while she plays with her friends at daycare.

Confession time: She will be 3 in August and she still sleeps in her crib. We haven’t really had a real reason to move her out of it and she goes to sleep so well, that we didn’t want to mess it up. The girl will tell us when she’s tired and say, “Bed, I wanna lay down.” I’m nervous that will all change when we put her into the twin bed we bought at Ikea. We have had a few escape attempts, but none have been successful.

When your kids are too cute to reprimand…

Yesterday was Earth Day. I so badly wanted to do a run outside, but that wind. And the fact that I saw snow falling from the sky. I decided it was best to take it indoors and so I settle for a little work place treadmill action.

3 miles in 34 minutes. The treadmill was a little rough today. I did a 5k this weekend while pushing Madelyn in the same amount of time. Something about that fresh air & a little girl shouting “Faster Mommy!” gets the legs running a little quicker.

Speaking of stroller runs, I signed up for my first official “race” of the year. I will be pushing Madelyn along the shores of Lake Michigan on Mother’s Day at the Run Like a Mother Race. I wanted to do this one last year, but for some reason, it didn’t work out. Fingers crossed for good weather.

Stroller moms out there, do you like running races while pushing the stroller? Any tips or advice?

Parents: best way to keep your kids from walking out of their “big kid” beds? I’m waiting for the day that I wake up and this tiny person is staring at me in my sleep…
