Touchy-feely Tuesday

Feeling sort of blah today.  Probably does not help that I have my period.

Had a great morning at a mother's group outing.  We went to a local duck pond and threw bread at the ducks and wandered around the pond.  I constantly had to keep Little Guy from actually going in the water and swimming with the ducks.  Other than that, a good time was had by all.  We then went to the BK next door and let the kids play in the kiddie area.  Freaked me out at first because the play area was huge, and I could not always keep track of Little Guy.  He was fine, though.  No problems, and once I realized that he could not really hurt himself, and he did not freak out, he did great.  He even came out when he was done playing.  I probably should have left, then, but I stayed a while to try to talk with the other moms.  It was nice to have a place to sit and talk with other mothers and worry too much about your children.  Overall, a nice outing for baby and mom.

I have been doing well recording food and drinking water.  I have tried not to fudge too much.  I do record almost everything I eat.  I usually will be lazy with the fresh fruits and veggies, as they are zero points.  I am really trying to do better.  I actually managed to get on a scale, and it said that I had gained a couple of pounds.  I am putting that down to water weight with my period.  At least I hope that is what it is.

Swim lessons are going fine this time.  I am trying them in the evenings, and it seems to work all right.  he is usually tired and hungry after class, so it is really easy to feed him and put him to bed.  If he wakes up in time, I try to work out before class.  Most days it comes together.  If he sleeps to late, I get a little grumpy, but there is not much I can do.  He needs his rest.

Thank you all for your comments on my last post.  It does make me feel better about how I acted.  My friend is taking me up on another visit.  It may not happen for a while, because July can be crazy for them.  Whatever.  I also mentioned the issue to Hubby, and he does not see anything wrong with what happened, either.  I think it may be that the expectations of the visit were not met.  That is why I offered another visit.  Hopefully I will have more time and energy for it.  But it leaves a bad taste in my mouth that my friend mentioned that she was "offended."  To me, that is strong wording, and puts me on the defensive because it makes me feel like I did something horribly wrong.  I thought it was a nice visit.  They day was beautiful, everyone got to see the boy, and everyone could see him happy and playing.  The adults got a chance to catch up.  The only thing missing was the dogs, and I think the mother wanted to meet the dogs.  Next time I will try to start inside, so that everyone can interact with everyone.  At the moment I am just letting it ride, and I am letting my friend take the lead in where it goes next.

I think that is all from here!

Maybe it's me, but I think it's probably a bit ridiculous that your friend got offended about not going inside...Try not to feel too badly about it.

Sounds like you guys are having a good summer and LG is loving it!
