I try and act like a tough mom with rules, routines, consequences, techniques, and like I actually know what I'm doing. Reality...inside I really could care less and wish that parenting wasn't so hard.
I LOVE not changing poopy diapers anymore!!! (Jordan's don't count, his are still breastfed diapers...enough said right?) Justin really is doing great with the whole potty trained thing, he's going days and nights dry and I'm lovin' this!
(This is a horrible confession) You know how they say that you usually notice faults in other people that you yourself have? Well...I look at other peoples' bathrooms and kitchens and see all the "dirty spots"that they missed or don't quite get clean in a general wipe down. I DON'T think, "gross, clean your stuff sick-o" I just look at it and think it's interesting what people don't deep clean. THEN I go home and take a conscious effort to look at my OWN home and see that I don't clean those same places...DANG IT!
Right after I had Jordan I actually thought to myself, "I could do this again...soon".
I WILL not be even THINKING about "doing this again" until Justin is in Kindergarten...maybe first grade.
I choose "student" life over "grown-up" life any day.
Someday I do want a home. And now that I have to live the "grown-up" life with Jeff actually working a 7-5 job, I want it more than ever. I have a huge problem making Jeff think into the future and try and decide things before they are possible to decide. For example:
Here is a very common conversation at night during pillow talk:
J: Goodnight honey, I love you.
S: Goodnight. I love you too. (smooch)
S: Ummm, so if you could choose your ideal job what would it be? I mean, like, where do you want to live, like what city do you think?
J: uhhh, I don't know, we'll cross that road when it comes.
S: Ok I know. Goodnight.
S:But I mean if you could CHOOSE wherever you wanted to live, where would it be?
J: (sigh) I love you.
Poor guy. Thanks for hanging in there with me lover.
So I'm actually not going to tag anyone. I know it's breaking the rules. I LOVE ALL of you that read my blog and I LOVE reading ALL of your blogs. I really have been looking at them, I just haven't been commenting that much.
