Boy is it hotta hotta hot out! I haven't walked in ... gosh a week ... almost a week? Something like that... With bad weather, sick baby, and medical appointments my morning walks were just not possible until finally this morning.
True I could wake up earlier to work out but as it is the baby wakes me about 6 - 6:30 am so that would mean I would need to get up at 5:30 am and sometimes I am up late with SN son which means I would get even less sleep. I couldn't work out in the house that early in the morning or I would wake everyone up. We have a really old house that is very small and me jumping around would be VERY loud that and the only room for me to do that is in our bedroom ... again waking up DH. Or I could go out in the AM but that would mean hoping DH would wake if bebe woke early which is doubtful and I really wouldn't feel comfortable out by myself that early in the morning. Excuses excuses but I think they are valid ones. I am getting there slowly but surely.
I hope a year from now both boys will be developmentally older (esp SN son) so that I could do more activities with them. I would love to be able to garden and mow but I can't trust either bebe or SN son by themselves for even a short period of time ... even just my back to them they get in to trouble. And I don't trust SN son alone with bebe, SN son hurts bebe but thinks its funny because bebe makes loud sounds. SN son just doesn't understand he shouldn't hurt people.
But I do feel so good AFTER I get the walk done. During ... not so much. Huffing and puffing pushing bebe along. The fun part is hearing him babble in jawa to everything.. SO cute. He is just this big big big healthy 'normal' sweet natured toddler... its just fantastic and SO different than raising a NICU baby.
So bebe is causing mischief and mayhem in the living room ... gotta go.
