My big girl! She looks like a toddler to me in this photo! :(
I love being a working mom.
And I refuse to feel guilty about it.
Ever since I have been back to work, I've actually felt better about myself, lost weight, felt like I have more purpose, and have enjoyed my time with Bimmer much more than before. I'm less tired and feel like I am a better mom because of it. I cherish the seconds we spend together and know that my job is helping us to have a better life.
Bimmer is becoming a screamer. Not in a bad way, just in a LOUD way. I've had to leave several restaurants with her lately, since she gets so excited and squirmy and just squeals with delight in a way that probably disturbs other patrons. May be a time to start limiting our restaurant outings for awhile... or at least until she learns the meaning of the word "No."
Speaking of which... we have started to having to tell her that quite frequently with the screaming. And with the raspberries. (Is that what they call it when she just puts her lips together and blows spit?) She's so darn cute, so it's really hard to get frustrated with her when she does it, but it's so not cool when she's eating and thinks it's funny. Being covered in spit rice cereal is not my idea of a good time!
She also ascoots on her butt now when she is sitting and can get a few feet, so I'm certain that her being mobile is not too far away.
