Yesssss! I am woman, see me aerobicize! Actually, I'm glad y'all didn't see me because I looked so pathetic trying not to overdo it after 2.5 months of my only aerobic activity being carrying my toddler upstairs. Missy was there too and she had my back in case I vomited, passed out, or had a bladder emergency. Although I don't think she knew about the possibility of B or C. Also, random info for you, the Little One is kicking around in there right now while I blog! I love it!
Two huge things in my life at the moment:
A) The Siesta Fiesta, which I wrote at length about here. It was really fun and way too short! Y'all, those conferences just take it out of you. I was feeling so sick yesterday that we almost left church. Nausea and blahness. I don't remember that happening when I was pregnant with Jackson until the very end. We served at Passion '06 (which was 5 days long) just six weeks before he was born. I had lots of Braxton Hicks contractions and swollen feet, but I didn't feel like I'd been hit by a train. Maybe it's because I'm now approaching 30. Dern. But I still have another year. Don't take that year from me!
B) Potty training. We are four days in. I can tell am going to be that mom who talks about her kid going potty. Oh Lord, I never wanted to be her. It's just that it takes so much of your focus and time (and you're so proud that they can do it after you've changed SO MANY DIAPERS), it's hard not to talk about. I promise I will try to keep it at a minimum in my conversations. It's kind of like breastfeeding. I never thought I would care to talk about that either but I could seriously go on and on and on.
Since this is a mommy blog, I'm afraid I have to share some potty training details. First, Jackson is so very proud of himself. As soon as he tinkles he jumps up, throws his hands in the air, and says, "Yeah!" He also likes to say, "I won!" I'm not sure where he's getting that. Maybe his parents are a little too competitive.
I knew we were getting close to starting because he'd been showing some signs, but I wanted to be past the nausea and all my traveling before we started. Well last week we had Jackson's meet the teacher night at his new school. His teacher told me he would have the opportunity to go on the potty at school. I thought we'd better let him try it at home before he had to try it there. Sure enough, he loved going tee-tee in the potty and he loves his new Cars pull-ups. He also loves getting a Skittle every time he goes. He has yet to go #2 in the potty, but mom told me to make him a grab bag of little prizes for motivation. I hope to do that tonight when I go to HEB. If he does it before then he gets the chocolate milk that came in his kids meal from Sonic.
This evening I might try to go to aerobics for the first time since I was about 5 weeks pregnant. (It's hard to go when you're pukish.) We'll see if I'm woman enough.
