Adventures at the Park

WHOO it was a hot one today but we made it out to the park any ways. Isaac loves being outside ! Ever since he was little he has loved to look out windows and have me take him for walks. It was a great walk today we even had other mommy company. I had a thought while we were both talking cloth diapers and breastfeeding that i haven't seen many of my girlfriends without children much. I know after Isaac was born that we were basically quarantined to the apartment, its hard to get cut in half and then go out and party, or do anything for that matter. You have a new life you have to take care of and with a new life you have new interests. I don't thing that this is a bad thing, people change and with a baby some of the changes are drastic. For example we need to be home by 7:30 in order to keep Isaac on schedule and if i would like to have any hope of getting sleep that night.
You spend 9 months preparing your home, car, and your body for an event that changes your life. You become a mother. You have the privileged of helping care for a child, the most amazing thing in the world. So i no longer get to sit and gossip about Snookie's baby daddy I get to talk about the newest strollers and breast feeding covers but I am happy. I hope that my girlfriends know that. One day soon i will be able to have a double date drink some wine and go to a coffee shop all after 7:30 but for now I'm a mom.

and in the world of a mom you do a lot of research. and this is just one of the crazy things out there to choose from crazy stroller  if you are in need of a laugh please watch the video because i did promise you laughs!

Adventures at the Movies

well this is my first blog post ever. I have always thought about doing one and just never had the time so why not start when i have never been busier in my life.I have been married for the past 3 years and it keeps getting better with ever year that passes. This year we welcomed Isaac Jude to our family and I couldn't be happier. This blog is going to focus on exactly what i titled it my motherly adventures, be it our first time at the movies with a 5m old, or the crazy baby gear i buy. but i hope my blog does what i want it to do for you the reader and that is laugh. Although i have only been a mom for a short time i have learned very quickly you must laugh and realize that there is an end to the sleepless nights and dirty diapers and that one day you will miss them. So cherish them now.

well this afternoon was our first attempt at going to the theater. He was awesome i swear this child amazes me every day. So we arrived at the theater and i fed him in the car just to make sure he was full and then we headed in. It was a Tuesday afternoon at 2 so i knew i would miss all the parents who would go after school and all the early morning toddlers. So we get there and there is one other family with 2 kids about 1 and 3. and so far so good he was in awe of the screen and kept turning around to see if i was still there. I could hear his thoughts "mom why isn't our TV this big". We make it a good 30 min in and i hear that grunt that is always followed by a not so pleasant smell and yes he did poop everywhere !!!! So i quietly get up go change him in the bathroom and zip lock his clothing and put him in the long onesie that i had for emergencies <-- see that i was prepared :). Then we went back into the theater and he was asleep for the  last half of the movie. All in all it was a wonderful day. Mom got to get out of the house and Isaac got to see lots of bright colors.
not sure when the next time we are going to try that again but i promise it will be on a Tuesday afternoon.
