It’s Wednesday and here’s an interlude between Christmas letters— we’re participating again in Five Favorites hosted by Hallie Lord over at Moxie Wife!!

For this week’s favorites we have:

1.

Marriage: 10 Things that have made all the difference. Loved  this awesome list of ideas! My favorite is the idea of having a shared journal that you take turns hiding from each other.

This book I borrowed from the library and it is one of the few library books I have decided needs to stay in my permanent collection. This book is the best parenting book I have read thus far. (Minus the chapter that bashes SAHMs) If I hit the lotto anytime soon, this is the book that I would buy for everyone I know who has kids. Who knew the French parented in the Montessori tradition? The main point being that the child is an important part of the whole family. And the book reveals the secrets behind France's wellp-behaved children.

Cornbread Waffles! Served with Chili on top. A delightful Pinterest discovery. Even better was when we made the waffles with pulled pork and sauerkraut on top. Heaven!

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee! If you need a 10 minute laugh, check out these shorts on YouTube. Host Jerry Seinfeld picks up different celebrities for a candid cup of coffee and chat. Our personal favorite was Ricky Gervais!

This poem by Mother Teresa is the #1 item on my Christmas list! I can't read it enough... "Because you see in the the end it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."

  1. Oooo, I want to read Bringing up Bebe! The fad of “French people do things better” is a little obnoxious, but from what I’ve heard this book is really common sense about parenting. Definitely the opposite of American parenting, amiright?

    • You will love it! It’s so good. I did have moments of eye-rolling at their haughtiness, but overall it was an awesome read. Very different from American parenting indeed. Favorite part: “Le pause” how the French as a standard get their babies sleeping through the night by 2-4mos. Amazed.

  2. Oooohhhhhh/ lots to look at & read!!!! Ty Xoxo PS- love bebé!!!! (Minus sahm & sending preschoolers on overnight field trips :)
