Back to School, Back to Blog

First Monday of the school year and I am not spending it at work!  I have to say, it feels pretty darn good, though I know I'd better not get too comfortable with the idea.  Husband went back today and I know I'd better be extra nice to him and helpful around the house before he gets jealous of me getting to hang out with these little precious things... 

As you can see it's been a while since I've blogged.  The girls are both home now and we are settling into our life together quite nicely.  I thought having two would be overwhelming, but I have to say, I'm pretty good to go at the moment.  Maybe it's because they're still infants (I can see where mobility could really complicate things), but I really feel like I'm owning this mom thing and loving every second of it.  I even took both babies to the pediatrician the other day by myself, navigating the car seats and double stroller through multiple doorways and making it back without any hiccups whatsoever.  

My only complaint that comes and goes is a little bit of cabin fever since I can't exactly let my car accidentally drift over to the nearest mall anymore.  And with some newfound energy and motivation, it's slightly saddening that a trip to the gym is surely a thing of the past.  At least for a while.  I'm definitely doing my best to keep things moving though with little exercise sessions on my living room floor and walks around the neighborhood with my perfect little family.  The stroller definitely ups the workout factor of my walk and the girls seem to like it as well, even if they're sleeping the entire time.  

Anyway, this week marks the start of my maternity leave and strings of days as a make believe housewife.  Just the 3 of us girls, we'll be figuring out our new routines, and I'll be watching these babies grow bigger every single day.  Stick with me as I soak up every precious moment and strive to make this mommy life look good!  

Let it Shine
