Thankful Thursday - YUMMommy

Thankful Thursday

This week has been a slow and uneventful one.  However, I still have things to be thankful for.  Watching the news and hearing about all the bad things that are going on around the world and just here in our city has made me very thankful for my life, health and strength.  I try to never take for granted waking up and being alive.

I am thankful that everything went well at my postpartum checkup this morning.  Although, I've been feeling ok since my delivery, I was still never about going in.  You never know what's going to happen.  And JJ did a great job.  He slept peacefully in his car seat the entire time.  This is new because he usually wakes up in a fit of rage. Hopefully, he and the car seat will become better acquainted.

I am thankful that I am putting more effort into getting Moo fully potty trained.  We seemed to have taken a few steps backwards.  However, we're back on the right path to making progress.  It's really challenging some days.  I want to beat up on myself for not having been more proactive and consistent because I know other kids her age that are already potty trained.  However, I'm learning to not sweat the past.  I can only function in the present.

I am thankfully that JJ is growing and is healthy.  He's back to boycotting his bassinet but I'm not going to complain.  I am thankful for my family.  My mom calls faithfully just about everyday to check up on me and to talk to Moo.  Although, our relationship isn't perfect, it's better than most of the mom-daughters I know.

As always, I'm thankful for you all-my loyal readers.  Thank you for continuing to support YUMMommy, reading my posts and leaving comments.

What are you thankful for?

  1. Thank goodness your six week checkup went well! I'm with you -- I try to never take for granted just waking up and being here. As long as there's a new day, there can be new beginnings and new opportunities. And that's a blessing!
