Here I sit, it's Saturday night. One kid is asleep, the other is watching "Fantasia" on Netflix. If you were visiting, perhaps we'd be chatting over a cup of coffee.
1) I ran 11 miles today, which puts me one long run closer to my half marathon.
2) I'm going to start weaning my little man this coming week.
I can't believe I'm even talking about transitioning to regular milk. Is Evan really turning one so soon? But, yes. He is. Ready or not, I guess. I won't miss his mid-morning feeding, but will be a bit sad when the first and last feeding of the day are gone. Those are my favorites because he's so super cuddly and relaxed. The process was pretty seamless with Hannah, she didn't blink an eye. We'll see how Evan does. And we'll see how I do, too. It's funny, they say you hold on to a certain percentage of body fat while your'e nursing and it's amazingly true. I remember dropping a few pounds after I cut Hannah off. Like THAT, really. So nursing moms, if you're trying to lose weight, remember this: You need some of that weight to feed your kiddo. Go just a little easier on yourself.
3) I want to give Kate Middleton yoga pants.
Seriously, walking out of the hospital in that beautiful...white...dress so soon after giving birth? I can't even. Then again, she does get to head back to a palace where I'm sure she's got people lined up to wait on her hand and foot. But still. Having to stand up like that for pictures and press and, well...the world? No thanks. Power to the princess, for sure.
And then somewhere in there, during our coffee and/or wine chat, I'd probably ask you the following questions. Standard fare because I'm always curious:
1) What books are you reading right now?
2) What good recipes have you tried lately?
3) What are you training for?
