I had big plans for this blog.... but between teaching, pregnancy, and the birth of our sweet baby girl it was put to the wayside.
Now that I have a smidgen of free time during the week I am hoping to re-enter the blogging world.
Being a mommy requires you to wear many hats. Nurse, circus clown, dry cleaner, janitor...the list goes on. Yesterday morning I felt like a worker at a toxic waste site. Every Wednesday and Thursday you will find us girls at my parent's house. I teach music lessons in the evenings and my mom will watch the baby for me. Both Addy and I had just had our breakfast (well for Addy it was her 2nd breakfast) and I was playing with my baby girl attempting to hear that beautiful little giggle that bring such joy to my heart. I guess I was wiggling her around a bit too much because in a moment I was covered in spit-up. Fast forward a few minutes later: Mommy is in a new outfit (always bring extra!) and I decide to give Addy a much needed bath. Bath is ready and as I remove her diaper.....*squirt* Great! Now the bed and the baby are soaked! I quickly rip off the sheets to keep it from soaking the mattress and then get the wiggling, now-naked baby into the tub. Cleanliness here we come! (or so I thought)Within a minute of putting her in the tub I start to see bubbles. Not to concerned, just gas right? WRONG! She pooped! GROSS!
After the tub was cleaned out, the baby bathed, dressed and happy I just sat with my re-heated mug of coffee and had a good laugh.
I love being a mommy.
