I have three things to say:

1- My baby, yep, my last little baby went to nursery. Like, A MONTH AGO. But, hey, who keeps track of time anyway? I have mixed feelings. Some people say they cried when they dropped their last baby off in nursery. Some don't. I definitely didn't. But that doesn't mean I don't look longingly at that 6 week old baby in Relief Society. It is a weird kind of longing though. Not a longing to WANT a 6 week old baby, but definitely to hold one. Definitely to go back through time just to experience it again. And then instantly flash back to where I am now. For sure. And I am soooooooooooooooo NOT a baby person. I like "babies" when they are 9 months old. (Except Wade, he was perfect from day one). But there IS something in me that thinks about that time and cherishes it. But has moved on from it. If you are reading this, and you don't get it, I probably will never be able to explain it, but that is just the way it is.

(This is my baby, and if you can believe it, this is a 4T Old Navy Dress that has never been washed. And I know it doesn't look it, because I am standing above her, but it IS t-length, not too long. Yes. She is huge)

I look around my kitchen table at dinner and I am happy that every single face is there. Most people call it, "MY! You have your hands full" But, I call it perfect.

2- Someone asked me if I have ever watched "Parenthood" , a show that started last year on NBC. Regular old show about a family (extended) who have a son with Autism. I hadn't watched it. I set a timer on my DVR for it so I could catch some episodes when it came on. It recorded three yesterday. I watched them at super lightening speed (I love skipping commercials!) and I have to say. . . It is a good show. Well written. Pretty true to form with Autism, except Jaxon has different "issues", but impacts our life about the same way. And Peter is TOTALLY the Dad (Adam) and I am a lot like Kristina, except for more "fun" and probably more "manic". I sat there watching it and thought, "Why am I watching this? I live this EVERY DAY" (except for the daughter sleeping around So, I can't say that I will add it to my permanent DVR list, but, if I didn't have so many previous obligations, I might. Which reminds me, I might have to do an additional Fall Line-Up Post. Comment if there is a show you want me to review!

3- I hired a trainer. For a few sessions anyway. I felt like my work outs weren't. . . working. I could have to do with the fact that I was on the road for 3 weeks during the summer and never hit the gym while the kids were out of school for 7 weeks. Okay, maybe I hit it a 'few' times but not enough, and well, whatever I had lost, found me again. But anyway, we talked about my "habits" and I told her that I always go for the 3 p.m. sugar binge (and 11 a.m. and 9 p.m.) and she said, "Well, if you don't have that stuff in the house, you won't be tempted to eat it!" I was like. . . um. . . "That isn't really my problem, MY problem is, I like to bake. So, it doesn't matter if I buy it or don't buy it. The problem is. . . I LIKE TO MAKE IT." And so, she told me what any good trainer would say, "THEN GIVE IT AWAY" So, I would like a list of people to give baked goods to at any moment in time. And if you would like to be on that list, please let me know.

Hopefully, my hips will thank you.

I get ya :) My baby has been nursery for nearly a year now...yikes! It feels good to be complete and done. I morned a bit through the last pregnancy knowing that I'd never go through those special moments again, but I definitely have my hands full. 4 is all I can handle!

Carol said...

liz said...

um, you don't even need to stop the car, just call when you drive by and throw it at me out the window!

I can't beleive she's a 4T. that's amazing. She needs to be a model.

I chuckled at the way you said that whatever you had lost weight wise found you again. Mine found me and then some.

I don't know how I am going to react when my baby goes to nursery. I think the only tears will be from me...but I didn't cry when the others went.

Did you watch "Thintervention" last week on bravo? Jackie Warner told everyone to get rid of all the sugar in their homes and this one lady did it by baking. Her counter was covered in baked goods when Jackie showed up. Hilarious.
