A friend of mine the other day said to me….update your darn blog…I’m tired of looking at the word penis…..so here I am updating my blog so that she and all of you no longer need to look at the word penis. I am sorry that its been so long since an update….but life is chaotic and busy when you’re a working mom! All is well here on the homefront….we’re still strutting our stuff and keeping busy with all sorts of things!
It’s HOT here….unseasonable, uncomfortable, just plain stinking HOT. I hate it so much. Fall is supposed to be my time of year. I love everything about it…including the change in weather. We hit temperatures as high as 36 with the humidity factored in this weekend and its the second week of October. Every day I walk past Jacob’s closet full of CUTE fall clothes and make my way to the top drawer of his dresser where the remainder of his summer clothes are kept. We have been wearing the same FIVE summer outfits for the past 2 weeks because 2 weeks ago the cold weather peered in on us for a day or two and I naively washed and packed away the summer clothes….leaving out five outfits “just in case”. The beautiful autumnal colored argyle sweater I bought Jacob to wear for thanksgiving this weekend is still hanging in the closet – unworn. It was too hot to even fathom wearing the sweater and instead we were stuck with jeans and a t-shirt. SUCKS…..I want the nice 10 degree weather where you need a hooded sweater and it’s fun to chase your son around the park without working up a sweat. I HATE HUMIDITY. It makes me wanna scream and I just wish it would exit stage left…anytime now.
I LOVE having a toddler. Having a baby was so much different then having a toddler….everything that Jacob does is so hilarious to me. Every day is a new adventure for us and I feel like Jacob is just so much fun. It was cute and exciting to have an itty bitty baby but its so much more fun to watch Jacob give pacifiers to a stuffed elmo doll or ask you for the 4ooth time today to read Where is baby’s belly button. I love this. Everyday I love him and the life we have….it’s perfect and whole and right. We’re at that stage right now where everyone is telling us its time for another one – and it’s friggen impossible to believe that “it’s time” when we’re having so much fun with the one we have. I’m not ready to go back to the night awakenings, the 10 diapers a day….oh and did I mention the child birth process? I’m completely not ready for that – not in the least. The good thing about Mike and I is that we dont’ feel a need to conform to the standards that other people would believe are good and right for us. We trot along doing what we feel is right for our family and so far this method of existing hasn’t failed for us. We’re good….all good and when and if we’re ready to add another child into the mix we’ll do so because it’s what is right for us – for now I’m perfectly content to watch my hilarious toddler do absolutely hilarious things…..
