Oh it's me! What would be an ideal date night?
I've had to think long and hard about this! We don't do alot of date nights. I am going traditional-- dinner at a nice resteraunt, going to see some real theater and havin DD stay at my IL's. Actually, I think I would just take the good dinner that someone else made! What do you love about being a mama?
: There are so many things! I really love just about everything about being a mom! I love that sleepy body curled next to me at night. Being the one to "fix" everything from hurt feelings, to broken toys, to illnesses. Nursing, I love nursing! Providing all that wonderful life sustaining milk to that teeny baby. I just love being a mom!If you could vacation anywhere, where would you go, with who, and for how long?
Hmm.. I have gone a lot of neat places because my Dad was born and raised in Scotland and worked in Europe for years. But the one place I have never gone is the Caribbean or somewhere with lots of sunshine, warm weather and beaches. I would say either my little family or with some girlfriends. And for how long... It depends on if my kids are with me! I don't think I could do too long sans kids, but in the future or with them, two weeks or so?
*Where/when do you feel most at peace?
Right now, it's at home in the evenings, when the house is clean, DD is asleep, DH is home and all is good! Historically, it has been at my grandparents house. They have both sense passed and they had/have (it's for sale) a turn of the century farm house on 26 acres in the country. It's beautiful, peaceful and calm. My DD is out there right now with my mom while I am "working."*What do you plan to do differently with your new babe than you did with Avery?
The big one is that I have to go back to work after 12 weeks. I quit my job when I was PG with DD and stayed home for 7 months later. Can't do that this time, or won't, because I like this job!
Luckily, my mom will watch this baby too, so I don't have to get day care, at least not for a while. Other than that... I am going to make DH be more involoved from the beginning. He loves Avery so much, but he doesn't do much to help! I am not going to be as willing to do 100% of the baby stuff this time!
*What is your favorite animal?
Cats... I like that they are independent yet cuddly. One of our cats (we have three) is hardly every around, but at night, she comes and curls up next to my knees/feet and I can feel her purring.
*What is your "guilty pleasure" music?
I am a total "chick music" fan. My friends have teased me for years for being too predictable and not listening to other stuff, but I don't really care! Natalie Merchant, Sarah McLaughlin, Meredith Brooks, Dido, etc.
Bring on the questions mama!
