I can't believe it's April already too! It's my birthday month and I'm going to be 29!
We move on the 12th! We're behind in the planning because the recruiter messed up with getting us started with the move coordinator company. They're fixing it though. We get such a nice move package! 50k for the move, $3000 in petty cash no strings attached, corporate housing for a month, a broker to help us find a rental, a visit trip for 4 days although its too close so we're not going to do that, they pay for storage, a rental car if we need, and more! We're so over the moon! The company doesn't do a hire bonus but they make up for it in paying for the move!
We're going to live in city which I'm so excited for! DH wants to move to the suburbs but ugh I so don't want to. People can be so stuck up there and I don't want to hang out with those moms. There's not a lot in the burbs in our price range anyway. I already found an AP Seattle moms group on meetup and joined.
On Wednesday last week, we went up to the falls and my cousins cabin. It was beautiful and amazing to be out in nature. It's was breathtaking. DD loved it, she talked and sang on the hike.
DD did two big poops in the potty!!!! I was so excited that I didn't have to clean that off of her! She's only 13 months! I know that's off topic but I'm thrilled!
I need some advice - since DDs birthday is in February, just after Yule and Christmas, I'm thinking about making one of the spring/summer Pagan holidays a gift giving holiday. For me growing up, I got presents on Christmas, April birthday, and back to school supplies, not a lot in between. For little toddlers 6 months is a huge development change and I want to get her a couple age appropriate toys near 18 months (August). Since I grew up having to wait for gifts, needing a reason is ingrained in me. Do you think Beltane, Midsummer, or Lughnasadh would be a more major gift holiday?
