What’s a Weekend? Plus, New Finds for Children.

On Monday of this week, mini’s teacher asked the class, via Zoom:

“Would anyone like to share what you did this weekend?”

Mini’s hand shot up and I smiled encouragingly. When she was called on, she arranged her face into a scowl and said:

“I didn’t have a weekend.”

We had a good laugh about that because — what is a weekend anymore?

And with that — a fresh crop of new children’s items I have been eyeing:

SWOONING OVER EVERYTHING FROM ITALIAN CHILDRENSWEAR LABEL IL PORTICCIOLO (SEEN ABOVE), BUT ESPECIALLY THIS ROMPER AND THESE EXQUISITE BODYSUITS

THIS DIAPER SET IS A MUCH MORE AFFORDABLE VERSION OF THE LITTLE ENGLISH CLASSIC

  1. Oh my gosh!! That is just too cute! I have been trying different routines to demarcate my weekends so they still feel like a break from work, but the line is definitely blurred. My goal this weekend is to finish a book that has taken me far too long to finish 😉

  2. What a funny anecdote! Mini is so on the money. I’ve found myself really leaning into relaxation on the weekends, as a way to demarcate the days when I don’t have to work. Lately, it’s felt like too much to try and get major home projects (aside from routine chores/cleaning) accomplished on the weekend. I need time to CHILL!
