Run Intentions and Fails

Happy Sunday!  Yesterday flew by!  I was up and at it pretty early [I always am] but missed my morning run and said to myself “no worries I have a day full of running around, Sunday will be better”.  So yesterday we had walk time, pool time, shop time and cuddle time:

IMG_1776Well that wasn’t in order but I love cuddle time with Evan.  It is not the rarest thing, I have such a lovey baby but it really never gets old and I love that he still finds such comfort in my arms.

But it was swim day two with my nugget.  He skipped his morning nap, fell asleep on the way to the gym and I was quiet frightened that he might be a bit unhappy about pool time; but, alas he was happy as a clam… How did I get so lucky?

I took his swim shirt this week because I remember him with purple lips last week, but his lips were just as purple this week if not faster than last week.  He still is so fun; but I’m not sure I love the instructor I really liked the “sub” last week.

Hector, Evan and I also went on a short walk to our favorite nearby mom and pop owned health food store, Larabee Herbs:

We also made a trip to Costco and picked up a few things including adorable alien organic cotton pjs for Evan. Evan isn’t a fan of carts but still loves his Ergo and Moby; so yesterday I stuck him in the Ergo as we happily browsed Costco:

Fast forward to today!  I was up early prepping for my run.  It was quarter to 6 and I heard the little man stirring.  Hector went out last night to watch the fight so he got home late and I knew he would sleep through Evan’s cries so I grabbed my little morning ninja, brewed some coffee and tried to get my hubs to cuddle with Evan or get up and play so I could go on my run.  45 minutes later Evan was finally happy and content with sleepy daddy and BOOM I let out the dog and downpour… So here I sit waiting for  the rain to end so I can go on my run and all my boys are sleeping in a triangle pattern around me as I sit and type this blog.  We have ventured into the living room and I have Oso on his pillow to my left, Hector in the love-seat to my right and Evan smack in my arms all sleeping peacefully…  The sounds around me are the rain hitting the grass/pavement outside, Evan and Hector’s breathing and Oso’s puppy dreams.

One thing you learn to do as a parent is live on other people’s time tables.  So yes, I am behind and didn’t get my run in BUT I did get a blog in and some more camera research.  I also have been able to enjoy my loaded coffee (it is leaded, so strong!).

Meanwhile, I’m off to make some lists to email to myself because this day has not started off as productive as I would have liked, but that is ok the day is still fairly young. ❤
