Yup, here I am. Missing in action no more. There is very little time to sit down and blog w a soon to be two year old. I feel I am doing more laundry, cooking, cleaning, and for sure, dishes! I also find, I am interrupted much more than during year one. It was easy to have the swing, pack n play and or high chair out while completing things. Now, there is a lot of, "HELP!" "no, I ok", "I can't Get it!!", "Get me out", etc..
We have a lot of, "try it", and "lets do this", or "lets go". This is fantastic, and with her growing and learning so much it makes me realize how much we really do.
Today was my Godfathers birthday party, it was a lot of fun, I also spent 3+ hours chasing 2 year old(s) and going down the hall, back up the hall, into the play room, around the party room (school cafe) so it was fun but tiring. I had a great time, one of T's little friends was there, we'll call her S. S has been working on her potty training, had a dry pull up on all day and... and.. panties on her head, with her pigtails sticking out each side. I need her mom's ok before I post the photo I took with my cell phone. It was so cute. I remember when her mother was little, she was the same way, thought for herself, did her own thing and I never had any appreciation for it. I do now.
My cousin was also there, she makes me so sad. I miss her so much, there are times when I just want to talk to her, but I left her with the statement that if she wants to talk to me, all she has to do is call. It will be a year next week, no call yet. I was making up the party invitations and was actually in tears inviting everyone else. I really want her here.
I never in my life expected that our kids would not grow up without one another. It shocks me. With T's birthday being so close to hers and another friend of mine, they may miss her party some years but oh well. My kid does come first and as she gets older it will be less important for family parties vs friend parties that weekend so it may get better.
That's about all I've been up to. I have been wanting to post a lot recently so I may be here more (lets hope) soon.
I have decided that I am going to start working on making lists, I have found this to help me in my everyday life but I find myself lacking in the things I want and need to do. I am going to start my lists up to help me keep up with myself.
Can't think of anything else right now. So see you soon!
