The return of "Me Time".

Hi, It's been a while! I return with another child and a few New Years Resolutions. After Having my first son I slowed down on a lot of my interests, I haven't done any Scrapbooking since my wedding in Oct 2008 (something to do with really bad wedding pictures.) I've done a few Photoshoots here and there, but no where near as many as I would like, projects of any kind are contemplated but never done. Having baby #2 pretty much brought creativity to a halt. Because of this, my resolutions for 2012 are as follows:

More time to do real things. I always find myself complaining that I don't have enough time to do the things that I love. I have time to watch entire television series with my husband but I can't paint my nails? Wrong. Every link on reddit will be purple but I can't DIY some glitter pumps? Wrong. Yes I know it's ironic that I'm sitting at a computer writing about wasting my time at the computer but this is from whence my inspiration comes. (Well, this and Phineas and Ferb, they're just so inspirey!) Also Keeping up my Blog is #2 on my resolution list, I will try to write once a week, if not more. Sure it will be peppered with breastfeeding breaks, diaper changes, potty training breaks, and bored baby needs attention breaks, but that's how I get things done. Speaking of potty training, there's #3 Truly commit to Potty Training, at 2.5 Asher has been in pull-ups for almost 6 months and we've mostly been "going with the flow" I'm ready to have this guy out of diapers. I need to take the extra time to sit in the bathroom with him at least every 2 hours until he's completely out of pull-ups. Ugh, that one doesn't sound like fun.

So here's to the year ahead! Expect a plethora of fun tutorials from makeup to age appropriate crafts for kids, maybe a few recipes here and there, and more of my typical angry rants!

With Love,
Mommy to Asher, 2.5 and Atticus, 6 months.

  1. Very cool - Sounds like you can work potty training into the nursing schedule. Feed the baby, sit in the bathroom with some books until the baby wakes up. *sigh*

    Isn't it funny how a lot of the commitments we make our kids do.... are actually harder for us than them? At this very moment I'm listening to my baby(10mos) cry in a room by herself (again) thinking - "How am I EVER going to get these two to share a room?! Why do I even try?!"

    *Cheers* to being parents.
