The Life & Times of Mommiehood

Here I am finding my way through uncharted waters.

down on the farm

We had a late night last night, but we finally made it to the farm around 10pm (Mountain time, in case you were curious). A long drive, one that was better after getting some dinner in Stephan. Hungry toddlers can be cranky! I was thankful to have Stephan’s headlamp. He was able to draw and play with his toys with just enough light, not so much to make driving in the dark hard for daddie, just the right amount to see what he was doing. Best. Purchase. Ever.

After getting to bed and having an interesting night Stephan woke up pretty early. Not before the crack of dawn early, but early. We are having some issues getting him to sit on the potty when we ask, and him waiting too long and wetting his pants if we don’t ask, so this morning has been interesting.

So far we’ve been out to feed the goats their morning hay, eaten breakfast, out again to feed the goats a lovely snack of apples and then riding around on the ATV after getting a little mini-lesson. I was even brave enough to take Stephan for a ride. Then he wanted to go with daddie who also did a short trip with him. Stephan and I rode around the canyon a bit too and explored that. When Stephan said he had to pee we pulled his pants down and tried to get him to pee in the canyon but he wasn’t going to have that so we rushed up to the house to sit him on his potty. Still no pee-pee … then I realize he hadn’t really drank much this morning so we gave him some milk and then water when he was done with that and I’m sure we’ll have a fully wet diaper when he wakes from nappy … but at least he won’t be dehydrated!

Here are the pictures, cause WP is annoying like that:

Now I’m going to mess with getting some pictures online that I’ve been hoarding since Christmas … yes, CHRISTMAS! Where on earth have I been??

I love relaxing here on the farm, it’s great fun!

My husband Andrew and I have been married for fourteen years and love living in Colorado! Eight years ago I became a mommie to an awesome little boy and four years ago to my precious little girl. The past few years have been a whirlwind.

  1. Great idea for the headlamp! We’ll have to try that one. Glad you got there safely.
