Flying Solo

Exercise: 4.25 miles running 9:27 avg pace and 40 minutes teaching mommy fitness although I probably only taught for 30 minutes because of Little Dude meltdowns.

I'm flying solo this week because Music Man is working in Atlanta for the week. He was gone this same time last year and I have to say it is a monumental difference having a 20 month old as opposed to a 8 month old. And Music man is only gone for 1 week as opposed to 7 weeks, also making a huge difference. But now that Little Man sleeps fairly well, naps fairly well and can communicate his needs I feel like things are so much easier.

(I just love this family photo and it needed to be posted, dog butts and all)

I also have baby fever again. It's pretty common for siblings to be 2 1/2 years apart because something magical happens around 20 months. The sleep I mentioned above is huge but also when you aren't trying a million different things to make someone else happy you have more time to focus on yourself. And all those things make me think "Hmmm, I could totally do this again." As though those last 20 months were sooooooo easy. Ha! maybe I'm not exactly there yet but the idea of giving Little Man a sibling isn't so daunting.

(Is he not the cutest thing you've ever seen?)

Ok, time to relax, watch Biggest Loser and read more Murakami.

  1. Little Man is pretty cute and I am sure that sometime this year there will be another bun in the oven :) I'm also watching Biggest Loser right now!
