The Green Eyed Monster

has found me recently. (Well maybe about 18 months ago if I'm being honest.)

Who or what am I jealous of? SAHMs (Stay At Home Moms).

I don't want to be a full time SAHM, I really don't, I need more adult interaction than that, but part time would be amazing. The reason this is coming up right now is I sort of have this opportunity for a bit. It is good and bad all at the same time. J's mom had surgery on her foot (nothing major and she is healing fine) but she is our daycare 3 days a week. She hasn't been able to watch B in 4 weeks so I am home 3 days a week right now.

It is so great that I'm able to spend all this extra time with B, but it is so difficult trying to work at the same time. I feel so completely stressed between working, taking care of B, cleaning and cooking that I just want to pull my hair out.

I want to be a part time SAHM so that I can do fun things with my girl. I want to take her to story time, to an art class, a gymnastics or dance class. I don't want to feel trapped in our house because I have to edit images for our company website. I want freedom to enjoy my time with her and I'm so jealous of those who have it.

Being home with her the way that I am now is just a big tease for all the fun we could be having!

That being said I have some cute new photos of her being HILARIOUS! Because she is HILARIOUS. I laugh at her every day. She makes me so stinking happy!

Ahhhhh! Blueberries!!! :)

Anyone think my daughter has a thing for hats? ;)
And speaking of her eating.... she eats like a cow! You would think she hadn't eaten ever in her life the way she shovels food in.
She eats just about anything still. (Except pork though that is getting better.)

I should probably also tell you that at her 18 month check up she weighed 21lbs 15 oz. (so 22 lbs) and is 31 1/2" tall. My teeny peanut!

Oh and yes I missed posting my big post on my birthday but I'll get it up soon.
