Post bath silliness!
When did she get so big??
4 years worth of Grandparent’s Day pictures!
Long time, no see
-I think I’m back (not that I was ever really gone), but these last 3 weeks have really thrown me for a loop!
-I thought that I was developing postpartum depression, but I think I was just having a hard time with the transition of going back to work. It was a lot harder this time for some reason.
-I feel like all I do is pump all day, boo!
-Carpal tunnel is much better, so maybe I’ll finally get a chance to catch up on everyone’s posts.
-My first doula client is due any day now! I’ll be keeping this as a space mostly for “parenting” related fodder, but if you want to read about my doula adventures, I’ll be posting about it on my other blog.
I can’t believe that it’s already been a year since this picture was taken…
One year ago, we found out that I was pregnant and Emberly was going to be a big sister. Now I have two beautiful girls and I couldn’t imagine life any other way! Did we ever have only one kid? I guess this picture is proof!
It finally happened… My kid just asked me why the sky is blue.
We are fully into the “why” stage now, and I can’t believe that I’ve managed to keep from saying “because I said so” or “because I told you to”. Now I know why my parents said that all the time. Explaining things to a two year old in terms that they can understand is really hard sometimes, but it seems to be working for now… the frustrating part is when she asks why to something that can’t really be explained.
"Emberly, can you please help me pick up your toys?"
“Because you left them out, we don’t want to trip over them and break them”
“Because we could get hurt, or your toy would break and that would make you sad”
“Because you wouldn’t have your toy to play with anymore”
“Because if it breaks, we will need to throw it in the trash”
“Because it won’t work anymore”
“Because you broke it”
“If you trip and fall on it, it will break”
And so on…
