I take a LOT of pictures on my phone. I take pictures of Caleb of course but I also take pictures of random things and I think, "I am going to write about this on my blog!" And 99% of the time they don't end up here. I don't know how Mamas find the time to blog daily, or even weekly, to be honest. I'd like to write more often. For myself more than anyone else really. I like to preserve memories with words and pictures. It just doesn't happen as often as I wish it did. So here's a condensed blog of some things from the past couple weeks.
The garden has died. Chris mowed over it, except the tomatoes. He dug up potatoes yesterday and we had a cheesy potato bake tonight. It was pretty yummy if I do say so myself! I hope next year we do even better with our errr...harvest! I've made two batches of salsa. I felt very domestic!
Chris has taken Caleb off for a couple Daddy/Son dates lately, and I have to admit, it's been nice! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE being home with my boy all day everyday! Everyday Caleb does something that makes me laugh, something that makes me think about just how lucky I am, something that makes me pick him up and squeeze him tight (even though sometimes I should leave him be and let him do whatever it is he is doing). However, I do miss me time a little. So what did I do last week? A little laundry, cleaned up my kitchen, then made a pot of coffee. I went to pour the coffee and realized that all my small black mugs were in the dishwasher and reached for this one instead.
So what if it's August!
I made myself a peanut butter n' fluff sandwich with my new FAVORITE peanut butter! We ordered a 6-pack from Amazon. Heaven I tell ya! Heaven!
It's important to have some me time. To do whatever it is that makes you happy. Mamas need that. And so do Daddys. :)
Well, my baby is ready for bed which means I'm ready for bed! I guess I will stop here and pick up later. I will add a few pictures of my sweetheart.
