The Second...finally

So much for blogging, huh? It's been, what, nearly 4 months since my last (and first) blog. Well, now here's the second. I spent this past weekend with my sisters in San Francisco - girls weekend with no husband and baby. I left for 48 hours, and when my son woke up this morning, I swear he was different. Just a tad more of a "little boy." His 2nd birthday is rapidly approaching (5 days), and he is getting a wee-bit more demanding. His obsession with puzzles is making this mama proud (I have a future engineer on my hands, and we all know that "engineer" is the new "doctor")! When he first started doing puzzles, I would exclaim "Oh my goodness" as he would put the last piece together. This morning, he was doing a puzzle as I was making him breakfast, and as he put the last piece in, he says "Mommy, oh my didness" in his best sing-song voice. Love.

So I'm still trying to figure out this work/life balance thing. I think the consensus is that it's always a work in progress to figure out that balance but, man, is it hard. Especially these days. It is so hard for me to leave home in the morning...I feel like I'm missing out on my baby's day and all the fun, cute things he says and does. I think about how I'm missing out on playing with play doh and getting messy with paint and building a train set and knocking down blocks and reading "The Little Engine That Could" eight times in one hour. Woe is me. I am trying to look at the bright side of it all. The fact that I give him over to someone else for 8 hours of the day means that I am fresh and full of energy when I am with him and so Mommy is always fun and always has lots of patience. That's good, right?
Enough for now. Hopefully more to come soon. For now, I will end with my cuteness on his second Halloween:

    Your son is so cute. Love the blog (especially the 3 and 4 is a bore food-sticker rhyme. I'm going to use that.)
