New Thing #1


This week, I did something I've planned to do ever since my childhood. I became a Stay At Home Mom! Officially! Tim went back to work on Monday after three blissful weeks at home with me. (Blissful for me - not necessarily for him. I can't speak for that dude.) On my first day at home with the guy, we ventured out of the house, in the snow, to visit the post office and the grocery store. We even stopped to get a sandwich from the local donut shop. And yes, we bought a donut too. I can say "we" because the punk ate it too, just a little bit later, and a little bit liquid-ier. Then I made a scrumptious dinner for the man who brings home the bacon. I made BBQ chicken sandwiches and parmesan potatoes. Boo yeah! I totally rock as a homemaker. And I will never use that word again. Because it makes me feel like going to bed early. Very early. And never getting up again. Goodnight, forever.

Anyway, I have had a full week of feeding, changing diapers, making meals like a good homemaker (doh!) and cuddling with my little man. I've even managed to get together with some friends, watch a bit of TV, work out a couple times, and take a couple naps. I think I can get used to this new life.

P.S. The punk has started smiling. It explodes my heart each time.

Your first new thing is a HUGE thing. Enjoy it, especially while they are young and can't talk back!

I am sure that Tim is enjoying the New Thing #1!

What a cute little punk!

Hey, here's a first for you to try sometime... CONFORM to SOMETHING. Just once. Just to try it. Just because deep down you know you want to be like every other cute little home maker mommy out there :)

What a cute picture. Sounds like you are adjusting well. Remember those naps, they are #1 on my to-do list.

I thought of something new, but it can't really happen in Utah. Catch fireflys (maybe some day).
