Just so you know he pooped in My Hand

I think my post about missing my family and my husband really made me think..... I think my life has changed so much since I became a mom... for the better. To be honest my life was a bit boring and there was something missing in my life. I was over going to concerts and hanging out in the bar. I had been there done that. Not that I would never go to a concert again but the thought of the traffic,the waiting in line and *gasp* actually standing during the whole show is just no longer appealing to me. If I can get in quick and somehow sit down I'd probably be ok. Every day my son does something different (which is every day) I am inspired and I fill up with pride and my love for him just seems to grow. I think when I first became a mom I wasn't confident of my abilities and was a nervous wreck listening to people's advice and I was adjusting to my life being essentially gone I felt. Now I see it so differently because I have learned to embrace taking care of him, teaching him, watching him and my life feels so full of meaning and my life isn't gone it is just different.
Which leads me back to my post the other day where I whined about my husbands hours and being away from family and friends. It makes me sad I can't share my son with others. I wish I could show them what I talk about on the phone-it just isn't the same.I look forward to when my husband comes home and I can tell him about what we did that day and the little things Griffin has done that day to make me laugh or make me go OMG-like pooping in my hand the other day. Yep he pooped in my hand. I had just taken his clothes off to get him dressed and I saw the look. You know the poopy look on his face and I rushed over to him and well it was either the floor or my hand lol Though I scrubbed my hand I swear all day I kept wondering do I smell poop? Oh I just can't wait for the potty training stage after that let me tell you ha ha So we do have a couple members of Joe's family coming next month for a short visit which will be nice.It's just so hard to say goodbye sometimes....

I'm glad you feel differently about the major life changes that came with having a child. A little while longer and you won't even remember what it was like not to have him.

Oh, and I would have picked the floor (unless it was carpeting). LOL!!!

so gross AND funny, Kitty! haha. I prob woulda let him do the floor too haha. When kids have wanted to puke on me, I've gotten out of the way. Good catch, mama

Isn't it funny how overwhelming being a mom seems and then you realize that, although it IS overwhelming, you learn to adjust like you never thought you would.

And LOL at the poop! :0)
