excuses, excuses!

Lately, this blog has been one fat suck fest.  I very rarely post and I haven't shared good quality pictures in like four hundred and eleventy days.

Like everything in life these days, I'm blaming PDizzle :)

Girlfriend has become very attached to me and usually doesn't let me out of her sight.  If I try to sit down at the computer she climbs right up in my lap and bangs on the key board!  So, I can't blog when she is awake.  Then, life has just been so dang busy with work and Adam being gone SO much that when Presley finally goes to bed at night I just plop down on the couch and sit in the silence to collect my thoughts (and sanity!)

Single parents out there- you get a "good game" smack on the tail feather.  SHOOT! It's hard!

I am normally off work on Wednesdays so you'd think that I  could sit down then (Presley usually still goes to school even though I am off) but, the last few weeks I have kept her home a lot due to some super fun skin issues she has had.

We really have been doing a lot of fun things lately.  We have spent several weekends out at my Dads house, we recently found a fun splash pad that Presley lurves and have just started planning her 2nd birthday party!

This age, almost 2 years old, is such a double edge sword.  I love that during this stage of her life she is learning SO much, talking all the time, discovering her vivid imagination, showing her true personality and loving (most things) her little life.

But, it also is a very hard stage.  Presley has always been a very determined, stubborn and strong-willed youngin'.  I've been reading all sorts of things about how to talk to and treat your typical 2 year old and it's just...very, very hard when you're in the moment and you're running late for work and GOD FORBID you ask a toddler to sit down and get dressed because that would mean they'd have to move their little midget legs and walk away from the box of wipes that they've already emptied out onto the floor and OH MY LANTA LITTLE EINSTEINS IS ON!!!!!!!!!

So, yeah.

Welcome to my life :)

Most posts are coming...SWEARSIES!

    1. I miss it, too! There was one month where I blogged every day and it was actually easier than blogging every few days. I may try that again :)
