Happy Birthday LIttle Guy!!

My little guy is officially ONE YEAR OLD (how on earth did that happen????).  I am in the process of weaning..sort of...kind really, I am going to do it just after we get the all-clear for whole milk (but I am a bit nervous of how this will interfere with bedtime and middle of the night wake ups, which reminds me I am never ever going to catch up on sleep which ALSO reminds me that I need to make a greater effort for selfcare...).

Ok, so it may seem like I've digressed, but really...I have a point.  I am taking the reigns back.

I am at a cross roads- I am about to wrap up nursing and with that comes the hope that I will be able to start to live a little more independently.  My body is once again my own....And my goal is to really take care of that body.  

I do so much for my kids and it is exhausting.  I swear, there are some days that I can feel my parenting efforts deep inside my exhausted bones!  There are even some mornings when I wake up CONVINCED that I am about three years older than I was when I went to bed.

So, with weaning comes the dull ache of a baby growing up, but also the sweet sweet realization that I can now use a retinol!!!  It's the little things, ladies!!!
