He's not usually the dramatic type, so his comments struck me by surprise. Yes, January did go fast...but since having baby G, the time does seem to fly by. I think it is because we find ourselves in this cycle of grinding out the days just to make it to the weekend, which then is over too soon. If only we could live a life of weekends. Wouldn't that be so lovely?
The weekends are such a magical time. Fun things happen on the weekends.
Lazy mornings in bed. Breakfasts that take longer to make than they do to eat (my favorite). Spending time together. Family adventures that may involve a trip to get froyo. Grocery shopping trips that don't involve me breaking a sweat. Movie dates after the baby goes to sleep.
The rat race of life is so mundane. Yeah, my husband likes his job, and sure, I wouldn't trade being a stay at home mom for anything...but we are apart during those times. Our life is so much nicer when we are together. I suppose, though, that absence does make the heart grow fonder.
Enough wishing; here are LfM's January stats:

Thanks for following the blog, I really appreciate knowing that there are other like-minded parents out there. Your support through my SAHM struggles is really kind...it can really feel lonely sometimes. Having the interaction with you all on the blog is very helpful.
I hope you'll stick around for February, as the BFBBP event kicks off for baby G's birthday. I'll also be posting her birth story on 2/21 :-)
