Hi. It feels like I should offer a confession or something..."Forgive me reader, for I have failed you, it's been 13 days since my last blog post." But there is a reason....and they both begin with the letter "P." Pregnancy and Potty Training.
I'm 15 weeks pregnant with our second child. I knew things would be different with a new pregnancy but I'd forgotten how much work it is to stay healthy. Pilates in the morning, walking in the evening. Cooking healthy meals and finding decent snacks. It takes time. Time I'd much rather devote to blogging, but I'm sure my unborn child appreciates my efforts. Oh and potty time. I forgot how often you have to pee!!! Speaking of Peeing...
I've (WE...Steven and I) have also been potty training Marin. (I'd love to insert a photo of her tiny hiney in a pair of big girl panties because frankly it just so darn cute, but I'll resist.) My mother's fail safe potty training methods have proven tried and true once again. We've been at it just over two weeks and Marin is doing great. We have had our good and bad days. Like everything with Marin it's been a learning experience for all of us. And just so you know, taking a toddler to the potty every 30 min all day every day is time consuming to say the least.
These two obligations seem so minor and silly when I go back and read them, but piled on top of regular life plus chaotic deadlines and changes with my other non-mother full-time job, life's just been, well, FULL.
I'm not saying I won't be blogging anymore I just might not be blogging as often. Oh, and no, that's not my belly, I just thought it was funny how similar in shape the pregnant belly is to a potty.
