Today, I cleaned and baked and tried to keep my boy occupied and entertained.

Being with Bubba all day is draining, mostly mentally. I know he needs a certain amount of high-intensity physical activity daily, but I think boredom in general just messes with his mind. He and I start bickering, we both cop attitudes, and we usually have to spend a little time apart to cool down. We don’t fight, but we do get on each other’s nerves. It’s going to be a long summer. Thank goodness for golf camp (x2 weeks), tennis lessons (x1 week), and swim lessons (x2 weeks). At least those will get us out of the house.

Baking and cleaning just isn’t fun for Bubba. And a game of frisbee catch wasn’t enough for him. Luckily, Hubby took Bubba out to hit some golf balls after work. And I got Bubba a net to hit golf balls into so he can practice his swing. That should help.

Tomorrow will be crazy. But we’ll all be busy and occupied, AND I get to see my mom, which is going to be great!


O’Baby turned two-years-old today. It has been two of the best years of my life. He has been a miracle in more ways than one. He is a gift. One I will always be so grateful for.

Tomorrow, we have cake and dinner at our house for him. I can’t wait.
