A slow blogging day

We had a fabulous day yesterday - highs in the mid-70s and sunny. We took Amelia to a park we'd heard about but hadn't previously visited. It was fantastic! Two playgrounds, picnic pavilions, a huge grassy area for running & kicking the ball around, a creek for the older kids to splash around, and walking trails in the woods. This park isn't the most convenient to where we live, but the drive will be worth it once in a while. I'm thankful to live in such a wonderful kid-friendly area. With mild weather 2 seasons a year so we can play outdoors.

I'm having "blogger's block" - kinda like writer's block - lately. I'm probably boring you guys to death. And I apologize for that.

Being a frequent blogger is more difficult than I thought, but I'm still enjoying it. I hope you guys are still reading. I love the exchange of comments and I'm doing my best to keep up with those of you who have blogs as well. Gotta love mommy blogs!

So for today, I'll jump back to my format I used in the beginning. Let's evaluate how I'm doing as three moms in one:

This weekend I was the Perfect Mom because I gave my girl extra hugs and kisses! I also strained my rotator cuff by swinging her around at playtime. Ouch. But she loved it, and that's good enough for me. Sometimes the soreness is OK to hear that hardy toddler chuckle.

This weekend I was a Happy Mom because I spent it with my husband and Amelia. Jamaica was amazing and very restful, but I am happy to be back with my sweet family. And you know what? It really did help my control issues. Steve proved to me that doing things differently can still be effective. All last weekend - Daddy's rules and daddy's way. And Amelia was well-behaved, balanced, and happy. She had a blast, actually. I should have trusted him more before the trip, but hearing about it in action makes all the difference. You go, daddy! Good job. Maybe my nag-o-meter will read a little less from now on.

The Working Mom.... hmmmm.... I've been a little lazy in that department this week. It was hard to get back from vacation and into that mindset again. I didn't do any work this weekend, but will jump back on it tomorrow. I felt like I owed my girl more undivided attention since I had been away. But welcome back, reality. I'm ready.
