Today is so beautiful that Hill and I are out on the patio blogging.
I have been procrastinating on cleaning out my closet because I'm still not in my 'regular' clothes, but want to take out the clothes that are to big so I can feel a little better about my work attire and not look like the slum I felt like during my pregnancy.
In the process of procrastination, I've come up with a new trend. Well I guess it's not a trend yet because it hasn't officially become the "to do" thing. Hear me out. I LOVE that we received so many casseroles and food every other night. Wow, you have NO idea how big of a blessing that has been. I just ate some chicken enchiladas with mexican rice we've had in the frezer that my wonderful coworkers brought.
So, my new trend works the same way as the casseroles. You send out an email to anyone interested in participation with dates and times they are available, but instead of food you organize a day and time to go walking. I know it has been the wackiest of weather during my maternity leave, but it may work for some new mothers. It doesn't have to be a far walk and you don't have to get out there and power walk or run marathons, but it's a good way to get fresh air and quality time with friends.
Just throwing it out there. I find I exercise more and stick to it when I have a partner. Plus, if you have a different person to walk with every day or every other day then you aren't bragging to the same people over and over how your baby is the most precious prodigy, genius, special being on the plant. Plus, if time allows, you can ask them how things are going in their life and get the scoop on the outside world of baby jail.
To make sure I still have readers out there, answer me this...
How do you change your baby in a public restroom?
I have the most adorable changing pads and am confused about keeping them sanitary. If you use the Koala Care things you pull down in public restrooms you are laying the outside of your pad on the public table top, but then if you have an 'accident' then the part you lay your baby on isn't too sanitary. What is the best method for putting it back into the diaper bag and not 'contaminationg' other stuff when one side has touched public stuff and the other has baby stuff?
Can't wait to hear your feedback!
Miss you all!
