A Day in the Life: Toddler Edition


5:00am – 6:00am: Wake up at some point and look around confused. I fell asleep on the couch and remember waking up a few times in my bed but I cried out for Mommy so she took me out to the couch and laid with me so I wouldn’t be afraid anymore, it’s dark and lonely at night in my room. Now I’m in bed with Daddy and Mommy is missing.

6:00am – 7:00am: I’m usually grumpy from waking up too early, closer to 5:00am, or happy because I woke up closer to 6:00am. Regardless, I’ve sat with my Gigi and drank some milk and am now roaming the house. Turns out Mommy was in the bathroom playing with her hair and putting that funny stuff on her face.

OMG, I’m 35!

This is the first year I didn’t cry on my birthday! WOOHOO for me!

Last year it was completely hormonal when I cried off and on all day, I had just had a baby 7 days prior.

Maybe my mindset this year was different. I am a completely different person after all. I mean we all are but for me having a child changed something at my core.

It’s possible I was sad and overtly emotional each year but I knew something or someone was missing.

Either way, I’m glad this year was different. It felt really good to actually feel content and happy on my birthday.

I got to spend the morning taking a walk with my mom and daughter. I went for a pedicure with a good friend and spent the afternoon on the couch cuddling that same daughter.

My husband surprised me with a beautiful perfume gift box. It had the perfume, lipsticks, blush, sparkles, lotion and shower gel. Oh and a great bag to hold it all! I was truly surprised and happy to receive the gift, I knew he put thought into it. That’s what meant the most.

I also got some flowers, cupcakes and a card from my mom and daughter. That made me smile, my first present from my child. Granted, she has no idea she gave it to me or that it’s my birthday but whatever. I loved it!

Did I mention I’m now 35? I don’t feel 35, so does it count?

Always Check the Diaper!


SOOOOOOOOOOOOO….Today I’m going to go lite. My past two posts have been heavy with current events. I care about those issues a great deal but I consider myself to be a happy, optimistic person as well and I don’t let all the unhappiness and unrest completely destroy my little piece of heaven. My family really does center me, they each remind me how important it is to live each moment. Continue reading “Always Check the Diaper!”
