It appears that I actually have a brief moment to myself today. I had a meeting away from the office and it didn’t make sense to head back into the downtown core afterwards so I came directly home. D is at work and the boys are at daycare so I AM ALONE!
Before I go and do something productive like prep for dinner or put some laundry away, I decided that it’s only fair that I take a moment to write. I miss it here!
Life is chugging along (or, more accurately, zooming along). Spring seems to be finally arriving and the boys are enjoying spending more time outside again. Littleman started t-ball recently, which is cute/chaotic. I’m still struggling to figure out how to balance work with the children’s activities and keeping the house in order (somewhat). So far, we’re managing ok but I find we’re all pretty burned out by the end of the week.
Poor Bo is in that awkward stage where he still can’t walk but doesn’t want to be held or strapped in all the time. He’s a super-speedy crawler and heads straight for the stairs or other dangerous obstacles whenever we put him down. He gets frustrated when we stop him from approaching said obstacles, so he ends up whining a lot. We’re told he’s eating well at daycare, which is a good thing because he’s usually pretty tired/grumpy at dinner time and doesn’t end up eating much (unless it’s dipped in or spread with baba ganoush – go figure.)
Speaking of awkward stages, I’m in one myself right now. I’m still breastfeeding Bo first thing in the morning and right before bed. My body has adjusted to the two-feeds-a-day schedule quite nicely but I’m in a tough spot when it comes to bras these days. I’m still wearing my nursing bras (which fit well by the end of the day when I’m getting fuller but are pretty loose and gapey right after the morning feed.) I was kind of hoping that we could wean completely sometime soon but Bo still seems to really enjoy it and there’s no real reason for us to stop.
Littleman is the one who is really thriving these days. All of a sudden, he seems really mature. He looks like such a big kid and is really great at helping make sure his little brother doesn’t get into too much trouble. I’m so proud of the cool kid he’s becoming.
Anyway, my alone time will be coming to and end soon and duty calls. Happy Friday, everyone!
