Well that was unexpected….
3 months. It’s been 3 months since I’ve sat down to write a post.
It wasn’t a planned break. It just sorta, happened. I left for a week in Cabo with my family with no posts scheduled, no friends filling in, and frankly didn’t care.
I was JUST starting to feel human again, had a garage full of boxes that still weren’t unpacked (guess that’s what happens when you find out you are pregnant 6 days after moving), and had a busy summer ahead filled with cousins in town, trips to the beach, potty training, and growing a human…cause that’s no big deal Frankly, blogging was the last thing on my mind.
To be honest, I didn’t really miss it. In fact, it’s been rather liberating.
I’m short, therefore go from “is she just getting fat” to “daaaaang, girl is pregnant” in a heartbeat. I’ve let myself wear the same 2 dresses a million and 1 times, rocked 3 day old ponytails more than I should admit, and haven’t missed busting out the camera or tripod one stinking bit.
I’ve played a billion and one games of Candy Land. Watched Shrek/Puss in Boots/Smurfs so many times I could probably recite them. Gotten overly excited for days where I wasn’t cleaning pee off the floor. I’ve celebrated giant adult size poops that clog my toilets simply because they have made it in the toilet. I’ve played trains, cars, read endless “Stein” Bear books, swam, rock hunted, started preschool, gone to T-ball, and any other little thing my baby has wanted to do.
And I loved every minute of it.
There are only 3 more months until this baby of mine forever becomes a big brother, my time is forever split, and impromptu movie dates just the two of us become a thing of the past. I’ve soaked up this summer, trying to burn it into my memory forever. To let my little guy know he will always be “my favorite Boo in the whole world”, and that no matter what, mommy is always there.
What does this mean for this little ol’ blog of mine? I don’t know yet. I guess that’s why I’ve been so reluctant to post. Why post until I know what my plan is?
The thing is, it’s been 3 months and I still have no idea what my plan is. I do know that outfit posts will only be when I feel like it. I’m no longer going to put pressure on myself to post 5 days a week, or even at all that week if that’s what life is dictating. I’m simply going to go with the flow and see where it takes me.
If you feel like sticking around, cool! If not, cool too.
As for me, I’m reclaiming my life. I’m no longer going to live my life so I can blog about it, take pictures of it, do an outfit post about it.
Cause if there’s one thing this summer has taught me, it’s that I love being a mom to my BOYS, yes, plural , and that comes before anything.
