It's been a ridiculous 8 days. Â What can I say? I live for the chaos (well, not really but, go with me on this, will you?). I (hopefully) have some awesome new followers thanks to the great exposure I got last week. Â The first came on Monday when I was selected as the featured blogger. Â Then again, I might not because my blog was down most of the day on Tuesday. It caused me great heartache but at the end of the day, I figured there was a reason for everything and let it go as best I could.
I poured my heart out on Wednesday as I felt things piling up around me and found myself potty training on Thursday. Â I cautiously wrote about it after the frog princess fell asleep and as an update I'm here to tell you we have been out of diapers (except for sleeping) ever since. Â Now that I've gone through this, can someone tell me when the anxiety of her possibly peeing on herself will go away? Because I'm nursing a headache at the moment and I'm wondering if it's because of the "you wanna go potty" loop I have been on the last few days.
My "work week" ended fabulously on Friday. How can I top it you ask? Well, The Stir is doing a series on Mom Bloggers they love. After I re-read the email 3 times to ensure that it wasn't being sent by someone from Nigeria so I could help them claim their inheritance, I squeed (squaud? Squod? What's the plural for squee in the past tense anyways?). Â Then I tried to figure out what to send them. I couldn't decide and my friends were no help.
Mami Sili (this was the winning category, by the way): A Look Back: The Very First Entry
I figured that you would come here and find the funny, heartfelt stuff but ultimately, I started blogging because of my status as a mami so, I went with that and hope that you stick around for the rest.
In case you didn't know, I'm the resident mami over at Have Wine Will Drink and tonight, I tell you a little about a box that's currently in my fridge.
After last week's insanity with schoolwork, I decided to reset and today, I am sitting here typing away after having done the Â majority of the non-interactive portion of my work. It feels pretty damn good. This is probably what the frog princess feels like after finally having pooped in the potty this evening!
I have felt so blessed with everyone's comments. Thanks to all that have been visiting from SITS and The Stir. Â And to those that read me religiously and show me support in so many ways. Â This evening, after I finally had a chance to look through all of the comments left on my fan page I reflected on how blessed and grateful I am to be able to share a part of me that at times seems so personal and still hear you say "I know what you mean". Â I've always been moved by the written word because it's got a certain power behind it that I feel threads us together. Â Thank you for reminding me why I write and for encouraging me to continue doing it.
