Lizards and Butterflies

As a new stay-at-home mom, I am still getting my feet wet. I am learning new routines, new sources of frustration and new sources of joy. Although we don’t have a strict routine established yet, we have ditched the pacy (or shi as Aden called it), and are learning to use the potty. I think we have a ways to go on that one.

One of the best toy purchases I have made recently was a bug catching net. Endless hours of entertainment for a young boy of two! We have already caught spiders, butterflies and lizards!

The Littlest Photographer

We gave Aden his first camera yesterday, an old 1 megapixel camera of Kevin’s. He loves it! He is so engaged with it and that was before he was even shown the pictures! His work is brilliant! I need to follow him around and take pictures of whatever he does! He loves taking pictures of all the things that he sees, from his shoes to rocks to his toys to grass!

I missed taking a picture of Aden yesterday, but today Aden got a new piano from his Nana and it was just so cute watching him play it and sing songs.

2011 Goals

January 4. So far, I’ve quit my job, managed to keep my New Year’s Resolution for four days straight, been offered another possible job and am wondering why people keep asking me if I’m ok. Really, quitting a job isn’t the end of the world and believe it or not, I’m a LOT happier! All in all, I think it is going to be an exciting year!

What will the end of this year be like? Who knows? I have no idea but somehow knowing that it is all up to me and that, at least for this year, I won’t be having de ja vu every day of the week excites me! If it weren’t for people in my life who were used to risk-taking and their support, I think I would go crazy. Thank you Jamie, Renee and Cori! And thanks to people like Chris Guillebeau who are inspiring people like me to change the world and be unconventional! I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Guillebeau on his Unconventional Book Tour last year in Tampa!

My goals for the year? I actually sat down and worked out a monthly grid at the beginning of last year. When I reviewed it in December, I realized a few things. Some goals were actually reached! Some weren’t even touched. So I can either try to add those back in this year or develop more fully the goals I did reach and expand on them. This year – develop photography and blogging business. Make some money! Ha! If it weren’t for this external pressure to validate my decision to stay home, I wouldn’t even think about money and just do what I love! Yes, I do intend to do that but if it weren’t for my husband there would still be the need for survival!

Being a full-time Mommy with Aden 24/7 is what really scares me! His daycare did such a wonderful job with him and now his development, potty-training and manners will be all up to me! This is what I wanted though, to be with him because time is short. I can’t bear the thought of only seeing him on the weekends anymore.
