Hello blog friends. Has it really been over a week since I last visited my ol blog?!!!!
Honestly, I don't know where to begin today as I'm so out of the habit. I guess I'll start by saying that this little bug has moved from 2 naps to 1 a day. And thus went my blog/computer time. Me on the computer when S. Small is awake is not a pretty site. He pulls my hair, bangs on the keyboard, basically attacks me from all sides. He's cruel. And its not worth the fight.
But regardless of how much he tortures me I just love him to pieces. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE our days at home together. Wild horses would have to quarter me in the streets to convince me I should do something else with my time. Its worth every dollar I don't bring home and more!
Now that he's getting on up in age (15 months - so old, right?) he's needing a little more guided play. So we color, read books, watch Veggie Tales, sing, eat snacks. Some days (okay, most days) I have zero to show for my time except a well fed, somewhat clean, and very loved boy. I'm totally okay with that. I know these days are precious and they are flying by.
And although this season of mothering a toddler and pregnancy is wonderful, its not without its headaches and frustrations. Thankfully, I am greatly aided by a drug known as caffeine. And if it makes you feel better, yes, I drink it in moderation. I'll have you know I've barely been able to stomach coffee these past few months and only in recent weeks have I been able to drink a little tiny bit of coffee with a healthy portion of milk. Normally I'm a fool for strong black coffee that makes your stomach hurt. But this unborn babe has me strictly on homemade cafe au laits.
I've also become a lover of diet coke. And the one I allow myself daily, is truly a savored treat. Beverages, in general, I LOVE. It is not necessarily the drink itself, but the ritual of sipping on something while doing a favorite activity or getting through a dreaded task. Nothing helps me tackle a big pile of needs-to-be-folded laundry like turning on some music and crakin' open a DC.
Well, that's all for now. How I hope to be back sooner than a week and a half.
