Life



 I feel like I have nothing to blog about these days, which isn't the end of the world, I realize this, but writing, a.k.a. blogging, is my outlet, and I love sitting down and throwing words onto the screen from this little brain of mine.

Alas, I have nothing to talk about these days, besides a cute, chubby little boy, who is my life. But even he seems like he needs no words, pictures do him plenty of justice, and I post enough pictures of him online to show that he's growing, he's awesome, and he's pretty darn adorable if I do say so myself. Evidence above.

So, instead, unless you care to hear my insights of being a mom for all of four and a half months, I've got nothing. Nada. Zilch.

I mean, I guess could tell you about how much I still despise changing poopy diapers, something everyone said would be bearable when it's your own kid. To that I say, boo, it's a lie! Still hate it. Still think it's disgusting. Pretty sure that will never change. Ever! And the sad part is, they don't even really stink yet. I'm doomed.

Or, I could tell you that I don't mind being woken up at 3:30 in the morning anymore, because, instead of waking up to crying, we (or should I say I, because somehow men have this amazing talent of tuning out children when the suns not up) am now woken up to the sounds of a very chatty boy who thinks he needs to have conversations with himself, in the dark, and it's rather humorous. Thank goodness he falls back to sleep, otherwise it wouldn't be as funny.

I'm still struggling at this whole "stay at home mom" thing. Maybe I take the "stay at home" part too literal, so we try to get out at least once a day. But seriously, what do you people do all day long? Thankfully, I've had things to do, people to see, and places to go lately, but I'd be lying if I didn't say it's kind of boring at times. Yes, even with an adorable child by my side, it's possible for things to get boring around here. Gasp! Hard to believe, I know. I suppose I should start working on more projects...

After fourish months of being a mom, I do have to say it's pretty great, and I highly recommend it to anyone considering taking the "job". Sure there are hard days, but even me, the lady who once had a whiny baby is telling you it's totally worth it. And whiny baby and all, especially if it's your first, you'll just deal, because like you'll know any difference anyway. I guess the only downside to being a mom is you'll no longer get any sick days or accrue any vacation time. But even then, you can totally stay in your pajamas all the day long, every day...if you want that is, so it's pretty much the same thing. So really, all I'm trying to say here is this, being a mom rocks. Simple as that.

I just want to hold and kiss him. Three more weeks.

I felt the same way being home with James. I loved him and was glad I could be with him full time but I was often a little "bored" or at least wondered what to do with myself. Now though, I am definitely not bored but don't make the best use of my time. Mostly because I'm so dang tired. Maybe one day my house will be spotless, well decorated, and I'll be totally on top of everything.

All I can think of is "Weird, Amy has a baby."

Stephy said...

Yes. I feel the same way. Every job has its challenges I guess. Preston is adorable.
