6 weeks

It's official.....we are 6 weeks  postpartum today!!
My how the time has dragged flown by!
In the beginning (3 days post-op) I thought I would never get here and now.....here we are!
It's been a long, tiring road but boy am I happy to be here right now.
I have a chubby cheeked little boy who like to give me smiles in the early morning and make kissy lips at me.
Hi Mommy!!

Squishy cheeks!
I've managed to squeeze into a few of my 'regular' jeans and I can start working out again!
Hooray!
That is, as soon as the doctor gives me the all clear on Tuesday.
I'm already planning my workout for tomorrow evening.
It will be short (20min. max) but I can't wait.
I think these endorphins will be just what I need to get me over the hump and really back to feeling like "myself".
I've gotten a few "pick me ups" here and there:
Getting my hair done was a great boost.
New Jessica Simpson wedge brightened a dreary day
Score! 

And a "fashion care package" from my mafia have been GREAT distractions and inspirations.
Shoes for mama and her little man!!
But I won't lie, it's been hard.
I'm a GREAT multi-tasker but juggling the two kids, being a wife and running a household is taking a toll on me both physically and emotionally.
Working out is a great outlet for those pent up non verbal emotions.
Usually so is writing but I'm struggling with how to find the time for that as well.
Gone are the incubation days of hanging out in front of the computer and tap tapping at the key board as my thoughts flit about.
No - now its all about planned and strategic execution.
And that's okay.
I'm just trying to find the balance right now.
I know I will get there, it's just going to take some time.
I see so many other blogs of women who have their side business and their kids and still manage to DIY and look put together and have a ton of fun and I just wonder.....HOW are they doing that?
Mostly I try not to compare lives because you never know what people are really going through.
They may portray a fabulous life on the blog but really be a mess in real life.
So I just take things one day at a time right now.
That's really all I've got.
Another big thing is looming on the horizon......going back to work.
Yikes.
I technically have until May to go back and I'm trying not to stress about it too much right now.
I've loved being a stay at home mom again.
There has been so much joy in being able to pick up Sweet Pea from school each day, make a yummy dinner  for my man and cuddle with the Almond Joy (aka Baby Ninja) each afternoon and still do makeup on the side. 
It's been like a dream come true.
Not sure how this will all play out in the end so say a prayer for me will ya?
I love these two kiddos so much.......
Sweet Pea gettin some baby love!
