I don’t think Nathan chews his peas when he eats them; he must be swallowing them whole. At least, that’s what his dirty diapers are telling me.

It is not a lovely sight at all. Not one bit.

It’s it’s not just whole, unchewed peas that I’m finding. There is also corn. Whole kernels of unchewed corn. Sometimes bits of carrot. And the smell! Don’t even get me started on the smell. I think I’m going to have to buy a gas mask or something because this smell is pervasive; THERE IS NO ESCAPING THE SMELL.

I still smell it long after the offending diaper has been wrapped, sealed, and thrown away.

I still have, what? Another year or so of diaper changes before Nathan can be potty trained?

Oy vey!


Changing it up


I hope you all had a wonderful July 4th!

We spent the day taking it easy and relaxing after a nice lunch with Paul’s grandparents. And even Nathan joined in on the chilling out by ONLY POOPING ONCE. He’s been pooping 3-4 times a day lately, and let me tell you, THAT GETS OLD. Who likes changing multiple poopy diapers a day? Certainly not many of us, me included.

We didn’t get to see the fireworks because we found out, once it was too late, that the fireworks in our town were going to be held on Saturday instead of Sunday. Saturday, however, we were watching the UFC fight, which was great, by the way. It was probably too late for Nathan anyways since they don’t start until around 10:00 at night, and Nathan is in bed by 9.

There’s always next year, though!

But today, our festivities are officially over. Paul has gone back to work after five whole days of being off. I always feel a twinge of sadness when he has to return to work, especially after a long weekend. I am lucky to have an amazing husband that loves to spend time with me and vice versa! I married a family man… exactly who I’ve been wanting my whole life.

So, in other news, I’m thinking about switching up my postings a little bit. Instead of writing at the same time Monday through Friday, I’m going to start posting whenever I have something to post about… whether it’s multiple times in one day or just once every two days or whatever. I’m still trying to find the right fit for me and what works best with my schedule with Nathan. We’ll see how this goes.
