There's a lot going on here and I'm not going to try to pull a fancy, cohesive post out right now, so bullets it is!
- We are getting ready for Michael's 2nd birthday party. The invites have been sent and we are waiting to hear who all is coming. We sent them out to the same people as last year, but fewer will attend (understandably). I'm really hoping that the crowd is small enough that we don't have to use the garage. Cleaning out the garage in winter is a pain.
- People are asking what to get him for his birthday and I don't have a clue. Clothes? Books? We just had Christmas, so I feel like the kid is pretty fully stocked on new things to play with. And the grandparents are asking and I think they'd like to get him a bigger gift and I really don't know what to say for that. Ideas?
- Potty training is hit or miss a lot of the time. He started initiating his own trips to the potty yesterday, just hours after my extremely discouraged husband tried to convince me that he wasn't "getting it". He is getting it. It's a learning process and accidents happen. Have a little faith in the kid. Maybe it's us, not him. My husband frustrates me sometimes.
- I'm very reluctant to talk about it for some irrational fear of jinxing myself, but we would like to start TTC again in about a year... which is seeming too damn close. The time frame has me a little on edge because I have to lose weight before I get pregnant again. HAVE TO. I cannot go through another pregnancy starting out this fat. I will be miserable and it will be unhealthy for the both of us. So I'm trying to get my calories under control and spend time working out. I'm glad I'm doing it but I wonder if I finally start feeling skinny and fit, will I really want to be prego again? I had just lost a bunch of weight last time and it kinda sucks that I didn't really get to enjoy my new body any, I just grew a big old pregnancy belly (and then some). I really just want to be fit and healthy for awhile and worry about maintaining it instead of watching all my progress give way to the baby. Selfish? I don't know... we'll see when I get there.
I'm just proud of myself for posting anything at this point.
