Matt & I are awesome parents…   I’m determined to like Sushi.  It’s one of Matt’s favorite things.  Saturday night we met friends for Sushi & I tried a variety of things, most made me gag.  On the way home, Matt & I were discussing it…   M: So, we found out you like tuna […]

I’m determined to like Sushi.  It’s one of Matt’s favorite things.  Saturday night we met friends for Sushi & I tried a variety of things, most made me gag.  On the way home, Matt & I were discussing it…

 

M: So, we found out you like tuna

C: Yes, but only RAW tuna

M: yeah, tuna in a can is barfy.

C: no kidding…thinking about tuna salad makes me want to gag – B & I used to BEG dad to let us eat in the toy room on tuna salad night, that way we could feed it to Willy, the cat.

M: I hate mayonnaise & tuna in a can.

C: do you know what that means?

M: No…

C: Link is one lucky boy – he will never be subjected to Tuna Salad, at least by us

M: that makes us awesome parents

C: yup….

Biker Babe

  Link got his first bike today – thank you Grandpa & Granny.  Grandpa Don has been telling Matt all about this bike he bought Link and how he was fixing it up.  It’s old school, you rest your feet on the front axle & make it go by pumping your arms.  Grandpa Don worked […]

Link got his first bike today – thank you Grandpa & Granny.  Grandpa Don has been telling Matt all about this bike he bought Link and how he was fixing it up.  It’s old school, you rest your feet on the front axle & make it go by pumping your arms.  Grandpa Don worked extra hard to have it ready for us when we went to visit CA end of May.  Today, it arrived at the house.  I’m not sure who is more excited – Grandma, Matt, Link or I.  It’s basically awesome.  He has some growing to do, but I can’t wait for him to get big enough to use it.

Ninja Baby

Matt had an awesome Father’s Day.  His boy dressed up in a Gi, could it be any more perfect? Link INSISTED on giving Matt his present a day early since he was going to Jiu Jitsu w/ Matt.  I mean, the boy was right, he NEEDED to wear his gi to BJJ w/ his dad.  […]

Link INSISTED on giving Matt his present a day early since he was going to Jiu Jitsu w/ Matt.  I mean, the boy was right, he NEEDED to wear his gi to BJJ w/ his dad.  There is no arguing with a 3 month old – when their right, their right!

Knil is hysterical, just ask […]

Workity-Work

June 6th, 2012

I went back to work on Monday.  Like most transitions since becoming a mom – the thought was way worse than the action.  I dreaded this day for weeks, and it turned out to be good.   Neither Link nor I felt like this when I left: Let’s be honest, me going back to work […]

I went back to work on Monday.  Like most transitions since becoming a mom – the thought was way worse than the action.  I dreaded this day for weeks, and it turned out to be good.

 

Neither Link nor I felt like this when I left:

Let’s be honest, me going back to work was becoming a necessity, but maybe that’s because I hadn’t FULLY found my stay at home mom stride, not sure.  I was becoming WAY more flakey than normal and it was starting to scare both Matt & I.  I was getting the “really Catie!?!?!?!” look about 200x/day instead of 50.

 

I have also had an epiphany – soccer moms are fit from lugging their babes around all day.  Even though I didn’t feel like I was active (like running active), tending to a baby around all day burns a lot of calories.  Unfortunately, my calorie burn has gone way down since I now sit at my desk all day at work – lame.  Burning all of this baby chicken fat just got a smidge harder.

 

Maybe I will have more time to blog now…
