I’ve been MIA lately due to the move, the flu, and the holidays 🙈. We’ve actually had A TON going on this past month and it’s been super difficult to keep up! But as we close out the year I’ve managed to find a little time here and there (between naps lol) to get a little caught up.
So basically, the near the end of November/ start of December WE MOVED!! Yep, literally a last minute decision and yep, back to San Diego. We moved for more than a couple reasons.
1. We wanted to be close to family
2. We wanted to pay down some credit card/car payment dept because,
3. WE WANT TO BUY A HOUSE, so we want to put away some money while we are here and have more stability/help with the baby.
So we moved, then *right* when we were pretty much settled in, Jameson and I came down with the flu. Now I’m a first time mom, and I dont know if you’ve ever witnessed how a first time mom handles the flu (not only herself, but her 10 month old as well) but it goes a little something like this:
Wake up and intently watch child breathe while sleeping -just to make sure
Google alllll the things associated with the flu and babies
Freak self out and take baby to the ER
Come home and worry about the medicine the dr prescribed.
Get yelled at by baby daddy and mother for not giving child medicine
Give child medicine
Worry about all the complications associated by said medicine
If it sounds like I’m a little psychotic, I most definitely am 😂🤦♀️🤷♀️
On the plus side we all turned out fine, and the flu has both come and most importantly, gone!
So all joking aside it really is a scary thing, as a parent, to watch your child go through such a tough time and not being able to fix it. We got through it however with a good support system, lots of baby cuddles and tea.
Finally, Christmas came and went in a blink of an eye. We managed to do ALL our Christmas shopping the weekend before Christmas, at the mall, with a baby. And yes, we all survived. We didn’t do all the festive things that I wanted to do for Jameson’s first Christmas because we were both sick, but that’s okay. He probably wouldn’t remember anyway, right? We’ll just have to do it next year when he actually knows what Christmas is 😉.
As for New Years? Our plan is to visit with family and then soak in all that this past year has brought us. Our most precious gift of all was of course, our happy, healthy baby boy. Even with all the crazy moments, I wouldn’t want to change a thing. It’s been by far the toughest year of my life but in so many ways it’s been nothing short of amazing. So here’s to no New Years Resolutions because who has time to think of any, much less follow through with them? Definitely not this mama 🍷.
