Why are babies so cute? I cannot have another. I mean, I will not. So, why are they so cute?!

My daughter loves to sing. And she doesn’t like to tell me when she has to go peepee. Or poopoo for that matter. So here I am, about to find out if I have any hope of teaching her the art of using a toilet, via song. God help me.

Oh just a little castle smashin. No big deal.

Made her apologize. I win.

We are sitting at the park and Aubrey has made a new friend. She loves meeting kids at the park and especially when they offer up the merry go round.

Silly girl.

Its like 91° F and most of the things at the park are too hot to play on. I guess the MGR is an exception.

She makes friends mostly with older children and I guess I understand why.

I’m just enjoying the shade.

I think I am gonna go to my moms on Friday. Pop said he might go with me.I’d like that. We ain’t gonna stay.

Nice that it’s Labor Day weekend but we aren’t really going to do anything to “celebrate” lol.

The kid pushing the MGR bounced off. She’s panicking. Gotta go help.

Easy

Wednesday morning. Last night I booked our tickets. We are flying home soon! I haven’t told anybody except my dad yet. Even Aubrey has no idea.

It is making me sick and sad. I love it here. I can’t keep this though. I’m being spoiled. I just really needed someone to help me for a bit. Like really plugged in help. And I completely got that. I’m so entirely grateful for my new step mom. And I’m extremely grateful for my dad for letting me come here and interrupt their peace. It is extremely peaceful here.

They are so lucky.

I learned in a short time that I need to discipline more. My child gets away with too much and that is why I am exhausted so much. And sad! It is so hard to keep up motivation when your child disrespects you constantly! I need to draw my lines and keep them drawn. What a revelation. The sad part is entirely that Robbie knew this. He said it. And I was too busy being hurt by his attempts and being the victim. I’m so mad at myself. I hope he will be willing to try to help again.

So I’m not sure what we will do to have lots of fun in the next week, but something is in order. A little fun to kick off the end of our visit. I have so much to do between now and the day we leave.

Toughening up even more is a big one.

I Need To Do *Something*

That moment when you tell yourself new gym gear will be your motivation to work out. Hmmm… maybe? Lol ;)

I really need to kick my creamer in my morning coffee.

I’ve been doing very well eating fairly healthy. I am planning to have a wheat wrap for lunch today. I usually have salad! Before I got on the kick, I was having turkey on wheat bread.

I’ve turned to almonds for snacking. They have been giving me gas though. Sorry, tmi. I got a Kashi cereal for breakfast, it is kind of iffy. Aubrey enjoys it and then she has diarrhea. Well that’s just not good. I’m gonna nix it today but not the almonds and see how it goes.

So it’s been pretty good diet lately. Dinner is also iffy since I am not making it. Best time of my life right now. I owe Kim and Dad several dinner nights and intend on following through. I want to ask her what I should make.

If it were up to me only, I’d probably just make steak. Or fajitas. Maybe both. Yummy!

I’m not sure what Aubrey and I are gonna do today yet. I don’t need to go to the store, but I could find an excuse and take her to the park. We’ll see!

I had to gasp in order to get this busy chicky to look up. She is not the best at taking selfies on command. She will ask me to take a photo, and that is sometimes after I get visibly frustrated. She has the best smile on command though! She really has a great happy face. I adore spending time with her. 

Something we are going through is helping people around us stand their boundaries. I am not only a new mom, but a newly assertive person, period. So I get a lot of “seasoned” “helicopter ” mothers with quick to hand over advice. Its annoying because I asked for it. I just wish I had known better already!

After mini me and I took my dad to the doctor, we went to breakfast at Perkins. Dad had eggs benedict, and I had country biscuits and gravy. Aubrey had pancakes, bacon and fruit. It took forever, and we almost had to go to the bathroom for a timeout. She really has tested my patience lately.

On the way home, she napped in the car. Now we are snacking on almonds and watching Mickey Mouse. It so supposed to get to 99°F here today! I am not sure if we are gonna try to go outside or just stay inside. It seems like it would be unbearable. We’ll see. After mini me and I took my dad to the doctor, we went to breakfast at Perkins.

So we are sitting in the doctor’s office. I’m reading reddit and stumble on the INFP sub. Next I find a funny blog and now I’m intrigued. I need to write more!
