Sporadic posting

When this blog began, I posted nearly every day. You know how it is when you first discover something new and exciting. It can be addicting and you sometimes find yourself planning for your next event before the previous one is barely over. I still find myself looking forward to posting. The difference is that I have other things going on in my life that require time and attention. The blog will not be forgotten, but expect sporadic posting.

Babies are precious, especially in that 6-9 month range. While I was at the pediatrician's office with Supersport the other day, I watched many babies come and go. Some were cuddled against their parents. Others relaxed in their turbo strollers. A few cried from inside the immunization station. All of them were adorable.

I feel as if I'm surrounded by babies and baby news lately. I've been to 2 baby showers in the last few weeks. Today I found out that a former student teacher is expecting her first baby. It seems odd to have so many people around me having babies when my own baby is closing in on adulthood. Yes, I'm getting a bit misty here. I guess I'm seeing the signs that my life is moving on and it feels strange.

Have you been faced with any interesting signs lately?

No matter the day, there is always paperwork to do. Today I completed forms at the doctor's office for my son's physical, filled out some personal information for an insurance quote, and then worked on some more forms for my son's school. I even made a grocery list, crossed off the things I purchased, and then made a new list of the remaining items still to be bought from Costco. Apparently I am my own secretary. I think I should give myself a raise as a reward for all of this hard work. Let's see, do I have a form for that?
