Mother of two

Here are some things I've learned since having a second child.

First of all, when you are trying to get ready to go somewhere, two kids is basically 100 kids.  It is chaos.  And someone always poops just when you think you are ready to walk out the door.

Second, and most of all, priorities and standards change.  A lot.

I specifically remember a morning when I was trying to get pregnant a few years ago and I accidentally exploded a smoothie all over my kitchen.  I was already overly emotional so I cried.  Then Rosie came to me and I thought she was going to be my spirit animal and hug me in her dog way.  But she just licked the smoothie off of my head.

Now if I can get shat on, boogerfied, and spill a fresh made meal on the floor before noon, I consider that a slow day.

Also, and this is more of a public acknowledgment of appearance, it is not lost on me that my kids are always dressed in pretty cute clothes and I walk around with them looking like an unshowered homeless person who has kidnapped them from their more put together mother.

Finally, free time is an absolute thing of the past.  Hence the radio silence on the blog.  Usually it isn't until 2:30 in the afternoon when both kids are asleep at the same time and then I just end up falling asleep in whatever chair I'm sitting in.

If I work out twice a week now I feel empowered.  If I sleep past 6:30 I consider that a miracle.  Things change.  Your body changes.  I feel like my stomach looks like an after picture of a Biggest Loser contestant before they have skin removal surgery.  And my belly button looks like what I imagine a 6 month old baby elephant's anus looks like.

I'm a model.

All this is to say that I'm obsessed with my kids and I plan on "getting my body back" in  about 2 years when Katie is in school too and I have some time to myself.  For now I'm enjoying the kids, being balls deep in diapers and dookie, and loving life!

  6. 우리카지노는 대한민국의 바카라 업계를 장악하고 있는 카지노사이트 입니다. 우리카지노가 대한 민국에서 장악한 바카라 시장점유율이 50%가 넘고 10 년 넘게 온라인 바카라 시장을 장악해왔기
    때문에 대한민국에서는 우리카지노를 모르는 사람은 드뭅니다. 이런 바카라 업계의 독보적인 입지 때문에 늘 유명하거나 최고만을 찾는 사람들이 카지노사이트를 찾을때는 늘 우리카지노를 찾습니다.바카라를 처음 시작하시는 초보자분들에게도 우리카지노에서 카지노사이트를 시작하시기 좋은 환경입니다. 우리카지노사이트에서는 신규가입시 3 만쿠폰을 지급 해주기 때문입니다. 사람들이 늘 1 등만을 찾는 이유는 분명 있습니다. 다른 카지노사이트와는 달리 우리카지노를 이용하실시 에이전트를 끼고 게임을 하신다면 본사 이외에 활동쿠폰 및 오링쿠폰을 별도로 제공해주고 있기 때문입니다. 이러한 이유들 때문에 카지노사이트
    업계에서 바카라를 즐기신다면 다들 우리카지노를 선호 하십니다.
    카지노사이트에서 바카라를 이기기 물론 어렵습니다. 하지만 우리카지노의 에이전트를 끼고 바카라를 즐기신다면 승산이 있다고 봅니다. 우리카지노 에이전트의 연락처는 홈페이지로 연락하시면 언제든지 부담없이 소통가능 합니다. 카지노사이트를 선정할때는 바카라를 다른곳보다 유리하게 즐길 수 있는 카지노를 선택해야한다고 생각합니다. 그것이 바로 우리카지노 입니다. 이상으로 우리카지노와 바카라 카지노사이트 사이의 상관관계를 알아보았습니다바카라사이트.
