Sick and cranky. I’m going to go sleep for 16 hrs straight.

If you believe that - I also have some great land in the everglades for sale, real cheap….

First, I’m not totally a stay at home parent anymore, I substitute teach part-time. But I did stay home for almost two years. I totally know what you’re talking about as far as being isolated. During my maternity leave I felt that way a lot. A couple years later when I first started staying home with Audrey I felt that way a little. During the summer I had a lot of activities to keep us busy, plus my fellow teacher friends were on break too. It wasn’t until fall that things got really lonely and the days got long. Honestly, tumblr helped quite a bit. The communication with other parents was a big help, but it also helped me throughout the day to think of things to do that I would want to post pictures of - sort of like a challenge that helped to pass the day. If that makes sense. I also sought out a Meetup.com group of local stay-at-homes. I didn’t become a huge presence in that group, but I did make a couple friends. Moreso, though, I learned about a lot of toddler friendly activities throughout my city. Because of that we developed a bit of schedule……

After that…it just started to get easier. I found another one (or two - that’s really all you need..) parents that were at home. Someone I could text midday to confess going nuts or share a joke or setup a spur of the moment park date. 

I hope that helps. Never hesitate to reach out to people though!!! Especially on tumblr - there’s such a great parental support group here!!

Wow - good question! I’m going to go with speaking every human language. While I think speaking to animals could be cool, I feel like being able to speak to other people in their native language would be a better tool. The ability to decrease the communication struggle combined with the learning experience would just be amazing. By learning experience, I mean learning from others. Does that make sense?

Gorillas are the one animal that could possibly sway me the other way…..because I’d really kill to hear a gorilla call humans a bunch of dumbasses. 

Matt’s doing some fantasy live draft thing and I’m bored….anybody got any questions?????

Even though we don’t nap anymore (or even try) and this has made for some really long days….I’m still amazed all the time at how much I love this kid. 

I forgot how much I love running in the morning.

So Matt and I just watched Gravity. It was ok - but I seriously could’ve dealt without the dead 4 yr old part of the story. 

Is there anything better than hallway yoga?!? :)

Audrey and I played around at the park this morning. I brought my GoPro just to see. I’m actually pretty happy with how this came together. I hope to get better at making movies!!!
