Happy 3 month birthday, Caleb!
Caleb and I went to our first MOMS group. 4 other moms were there at one gal’s house. it was breakfast recipe day. everybody was supposed to make a breakfast item and bring copies of the recipe to share with the other moms. I’ve been wanting to get out of the house and meet other moms, but I was thinking I may be in over my head with this cooking/recipe stuff. I was worried I might be hanging out with a bunch of “Stepford Wives” moms or something like that. Who has time to cook breakfast? Don’t most people just have instant oatmeal, toast, or cereal? Or aren’t they like Chris and they run out the door and eat lunch as their first meal? Well, I learned that this was their first recipe day. I made these ice cream muffins… 2 ingredients in the recipe – bisquick and ice cream. mix, pour, and bake. doesn’t get any simpler! it made me feel better when one of the other moms brought store-bought croissants and said here’s our breaksfast. hee-hee. real life as a mother.
it was nice meeting with other moms. their kids were 15 months to 2+ years. they told me about their own spit up, poop, and lack-of-sleep stories. it was encouraging to hear that it gets easier. they were amazed at how good Caleb is… how mellow he is. Caleb’s so good in front of other people. Way to go, Caleb… you fooled them all! i got home and not more than 5 minutes later, my little angel started wailing for an hour before finally giving in to a needed nap. so, my little 3-month angel is laying in my lap napping. in 10 minutes or so, he’ll be up and ready to eat and play again. it makes for a busy day taking care of a baby. but, Caleb is so adorable! as much as i miss my sleep, a clean house, peaceful car rides, being able to eat dinner at the same time as my husband, i definitely wouldn’t give back my little munchkin now.
