My New Normal

In honor of MLK Day, Fluffette took her first scoot….forward!!!  She’s been ‘backin that thang up’ for a few months now and I honestly thought she would never crawl forward.  She finally did and I sure did tear up a little.  I can’t believe that this sweet, innocent…and immobile baby Nugget…

Is now this all grown up….still super sweet and innocent little lady. 

Before I became a mother, I thought that being a Stay at Home Mom (SAHM) was the most cush job a girl could ask for.  All you do is sit around eating bon bons and watching soap operas, right? 

Boy was I wrong!!

I wanted to share a few things that have become my ‘New Normal’

Since I can no longer leave her on her play mat with all her toys, this is now how I vacuum.  I’m not complaining because lugging around a 20 pound baby while vacuuming is a GREAT workout.

I rarely get to actually enjoy a meal anymore and Fluffette gets pretty aggressive and grunts at me if I don’t feed her fast enough.  She git it frum her mah-muh.  It either takes me an hour or 5 seconds to finish my lunch.  That’s right, I either snack off my lunch plate for the better part of the day OR I just shovel it in.  I truly think this new way of eating has helped me in my weight loss.  Thanks for looking out for me, Fluffette.

I typically try to work out and shower while Fluffette takes her morning nap.  If I decide to clean or do laundry instead it throws off my whole schedule.  When that happens, this is how I shower….

I used to love my moments alone in the shower, just lingering under the warm water.  Just me and my thoughts (staring off in the distance remembering the past).  Well, now I enjoy showering in 2.2 seconds while being serenaded by the grunts and bubbles  of Fluffette while she bangs her toys against her highchair, the wall…and her head.  When she’s not throwing her toys around, she’s watching me shower.  You have never known judgement until you see those sweet little baby eyes concentrating  and wondering what the eff that is before them.  Don’t worry, I think she’s still too young to be scarred by all the wobbly bits. 

I assume that you all think I just sit around eating bon bons while watching Soaps, taking pictures of us pretending to vacuum and complaining about not being able to shower in silence.  You could NOT be more wrong. 

I also do all these things…
1.        I cover vases with rope…
2.   I cover diaper boxes with fabric for cheap and easy storage….

3.  I have impromptu photo shoots with Fluffette…. (yes, this is the cutest picture you will ever see in your life.  It only took 100 shots of Fluffette pimp slapping her stuffed animals before I was able to get this shot)

4.   I finally make it to the 170s.  I KNOW, RIGHT!!  I weighed in on Wednesday at 179.4.  I have finally made it through my plateau with the help of 30 Day Shred Level 3.   *pats self on back then does a high kick*

As you can see, I'm super busy doing super important stuff.  And yes, this entire post contradicts itself.  I complain about not getting to eat lunch or take a shower alone, yet I have all this time to craft.  The beauty of it all is that this is MY story and I can tell it how I want.  (hairflip)
