three socks walk into a bar

I'm doing laundry out the wazoo these days. Luckily, M + M equate watching me folding laundry to the finest in quality entertainment, with emptying the dishwasher running a close second.

On another note, regarding my last post---sometimes I write about how I'm feeling in a given moment and move right on, giving it little extra thought. However, in this instance, several of you were more tuned into my emotions than I was. I'm very grateful for your kind words and thoughts. Right now is the best time of my life, but also the most challenging. No book could have prepared me for the roller coaster ride of motherhood.

One new baby is quite the two new beautiful souls! I can't even imagine. They are beautiful and yay for enjoying watching you do chores! Our first used to enjoy it when I vacuumed. And now our rescue dog equates my getting the laundry out of the washer to an excursion outside if that round white plastic basket thing gets involved. Woohoo. Hanging clothes. Just be sure to get some rest - if and when you can. Speaking as a grandma now :)

I do have a solution for tiny socks - put them all in a little mesh bag with a snap wrap that closes it (like for lingerie). Then they can't run away from each other.

I gave up on socks at about 3 months. Footie pjs!

And they are the cutest little sockies, aren't they? : )

Hi Suzanne-

I don't like to promote myself much but as my little one is 9 months old I thought maybe you could benefit from some of my experiences so far!

I'm blogging for a cloth diapering store in Denver- I wrote posts as I went and am posting them now, a few months behind. Here is the blog:

I've also been writing more on my own blog about the "rollercoaster ride of motherhood" as you so aptly put it. Hope to offer a little encouragement, or at least the feeling that you aren't the only one feeling challenged sometimes!
