It is what it is

Today would be a great exampke of why I settled on Deadlines and Diapers as my blog title.

In fact, today actually pretty much spelled out my tag line, too.

It all started with Buttercup--who is feeling much better, thank you very much--waking up demanding breakfast at 7 a.m.

Those of you who know me are laughing at me right now. That's ok. Cuz I fell back asleep with a smile on my face after Buttercup got her fill of banana and gluten-free cereal. she happily cuddled up in my arms and kocked back out, too.

The plan when I woke up (again) was to address my to-do list, which included laundry, cleaning the kitchen, writing one post for baby gooroo, blogging here and at berrie sweet picks, cleaning Buttercup's room, vacuuming, and cleaning the bathroom.

And one by one, things did done. Sure, I took a 45 minute break when Buttercup fell asleep on my chest in the rocking chair, and yes, I stopped trying to get any writing done when Buttercup wanted to play with me. And then again when she shoved a book in my face, which is Buttercup-speak for "Read to me, Mommy."

And I stopped yet again when she woke up 20 minutes into her second nap, pissed off to all get-out that I had manage to pull a fast one on her and slip her into the crib. She made me read her more books as my punishement.

Then came bed time and I still had yet to blog, write, and otherwise try to keep the freelance writing thing going. We did the usual bath, book, and bed routine, which only took 7 stories and about 15 minutes of me singing "Twinkle, twinkle, little star," before Buttercup was out cold.

All in all, it went pretty well.


So here I sit, with the diapers portion of my life attended to. Now it's time to get to the deadlines, while I still have time. God, I love my life.

Oh I am with ya! I got the book shoved at me while I was writing some posts and comments today, demanding. I am fortunate that I can give her one book and then bed time, lay her down and say good night, out! This is pretty consistent. You gotta love a routine!
