Coming home from vacation!

I have mixed feelings about coming home. I've been home for 2 days and still there's stuff everywhere that needs to be washed and/or put away. Why is that so hard? My suitcase is open and I just need to clean it up...but, instead I find other things that are more important to do like spending time catching up with friends. Somehow I don't think I'm alone in this! I have to be's not easy to be inspired in below zero weather. My poor daughter has not transitioned well. When we're outside she starts moaning and saying, "Ouch mommy, it hurts!" Then she wants to be picked up and carried! For a pregnant mom in a puff-daddy jacket picking up my 32 pound toddler is the last thing I want to do! So, I try and find anything to distract her and it usually works.

I didn't give you the update on potty training. Of all places, Adriah decided she was ready at the Smithsonian and went four times in one day! She has continued to go 2-3 times a day and tonight had her first poop experience! It's gross but, I was so proud...and excited that my poopy diaper days may be coming to end :) Thank you for all your extremely helpful advice. If nothing else, I began to relax about the whole thing and it really has worked out well! I have 3 months til the next one comes so I think we're in good shape!

Alright, I'm going to turn on a good movie and clean. Nothing like a good movie to get me inspired! Tomorrow I'm going shopping! My daughter is growing like a weed and that means all her clothes don't fit. Thankfully, Old Navy and Children's Place are having their HUGE sales off their clearance stuff so I can restock!

Wow, this blog was really a lot of blah, blah, blah...but, for those of you who read daily you're used to my randomness!
