What I want

Now that we have a little monkey baby, what I want matters a whole lot less than when it was just Bill and I. I used to live the life! Drinking lattes and exercising whenever I wasn't working. Let me tell you how life has changed for me now...

We decided to test out baby's driving endurance today by taking him on a drive to the local outlet mall.
That was a brilliant idea, except it turns out our child is not a shopper. He yelled in every story and threw a full-on fit in the T-mobile store. Oh! And he pooped 3 times during the 5 hours we were gone and guess how many wet whipes I had with me? 3! It was close.

We had to pull over the car to breast feed when we were only 15 minutes from home. Bill was irritated. I was exhausted. And baby just wanted us to know that he doesn't like to shop.

After that fiasco Liam slept like a baby so I hurried to get my weekend project done: clean out the entry way closet. Then I had to scramble to get a swim in, even though I was exhausted and wanted a nap. I managed to swim 10 x 100 on 2:00 (1:45 pace which I am not too distressed about for now) and 10 x 50 (I know! Norwegian designed workout). I got home around 6pm, ate leftovers, did the dishes, breastfed, folded laundry, and now here I am, finally getting to the blog while Bill puts the baby down for the night. And I did all this without caffeine.

And in even more important news, we got just the right photo for our holiday cards. Only minor nudity is involved. I will share the design after we get them in the mail. Hope your holiday planning is going well, if so, why don't you come borrow Liam for the day?

Your 10x100 at 1:45 pace would have made me happy this summer. I hate you fishies :P

When we get back from Chicago, I'll borrow Liam for the day! Or a few hours, at least! At the very least, maybe I can borrow both of you for a walk...
