Coffee Date

September 4, 2013

I’ve seen coffee date blog posts popping up all over the blog world and thought it would be fun to join in. I love nothing more than enjoying a nice coffee or tea and gabbing with friends.

If we were having coffee this morning I would apologize that I’m multi-tasking and doing some meal prep for the rest of the day. I got my new meal plan on the weekend and am easing myself into it. I know that I want to start for good after this weekend as I have a lot of plans surrounding food. I’m actually excited for this meal plan because it’s not the same thing every day. The last time I was on a meal plan it was chicken, rice and green beans for three meals a day. Which worked fine for awhile and I had great results from eating that way, but I never want to eat a chicken, rice and green bean combo ever again! I will probably do a weekly recap on my meals and how I’m feeling for those that are interested.

If we were having coffee today I would confess that I’m feeling like a terrible mom these days. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’m having a hard time with Liam’s temper tantrums and constant crying/screaming. I’m sure if he was just quieter, it wouldn’t be half as bad. But that loud voice of his just gets me deep. I get so flustered and overwhelmed and it makes me want to cry. I know that when I look back I will wish I had been more patient with him because he will grow so fast. I try and make him happy by walking him around all day long or playing with books or going in and out of the patio door a million times. But sometimes I need to pee, or make dinner or just have a moment to myself without being touched and climbed on. It almost makes me excited to go back to work so I can escape the constant crying.

If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you that I’m really thankful for your friendship and coming over to drink coffee with me. I’ve been thinking a lot about the friendships I have since having Liam. I’ve lost touch with some people, made new friends and became closer with existing friends. I know that the friends I have now are keepers and I cherish my relationships with them so much.

If we were having coffee this morning, I would shamelessly show you these adorable photos of Liam from hanging out at my parent’s place yesterday

What would you share if we were having coffee this morning?

    I’d tell you that I think you’re incredible, and i wouldn’t in a million years have the patience to deal with a screaming toddler especially if I was having to do the majority of it on my own. As much as I love my nieces and nephews I don’t think I could ever have my own. There are some incredibly rewarding moments, and looking back they definitely out shine the frustration, but when you are in the thick of it…

    Anyone who says being a stay at home parent is a picnic is a moron.

      Thanks for the kind words Jessie. You’re right, it’s definitely no picnic but it makes me cherish the good moments we have together even more.

    I’d love to hear about your new meal plans. There is no way I could eat the same thing for 3 meals in a row either. I need a bit of variety.

    Hugs- parenting is tough, especially when they can’t communicate with you. It’s normal to feel frustrated by the constant crying when you don’t know how to fix it. This too shall pass.

    That’s a super cute photo of Liam! He’s so handsome!

      Do you follow me on Instagram? I post a lot of food pictures there haha. But I will still recap.

      I wish that I had been more on top of signing and that Liam actually picked up on it. I feel like that would help a LOT with this.

    I really wish we could have a real coffee date! or even just more facetime dates with just us

    I can’t wait to see some of your meals from your new meal plan.

    But if we were together, I’d probably show you pictures of my niece while you showed me pictures of Liam. 😛 And talk about so many things, from fitness to just life..
    Makes me wish you lived closer. <3

    I am so thankful for our friendship 🙂
