Mommy Moments

The other night I had a serious "Mommy Moment"  while I was holding Cole.  I was holding him in my arms like a baby and kissing his cheeks over and over again because he was finding it quite amusing, smiling and giggling with every kiss, and then it hit me....there is going to come a day when he won't want me to do this anymore.  I know, I's a reality that happens! but I didn't expect it to hit me like this already lol...I almost started crying!  I started thinking that one day he is going to be all grown up and won't want a kiss from his day he will have a wife and she will be more day he isn't going to need me anymore.  Thankfully, that one day won't be anytime soon, so I am going to suck up every moment I have with him still enjoying my kisses and company while I can :)  I was reading "I'll Love You Forever" by Robert Munsch to him yesterday and I had to put it down before I could finish...that book now has more meaning to me than it ever has...great story but quite sad in the reality of things.

Anyways...that's my Mommy Moment for this week.  I'll try and post happier Mommy Moments in the future lol...

Bootcamp: Surviving Week 2

Tonight is class 4 of bootcamp.  To be honest when Monday rolled around I was dreading going back soooo much.  It didn't help that it was a dreary cold and rainy day on Monday...that kind of weather does nothing for your motivation!  I dragged myself to class and actually pushed myself through the hardest one yet.  Those who know me know that I HATE running or anything that involves doing cardio...and Monday's class was all about the cardio!  We had to do like 6 sets of stairs, a warm up run, suicides and we ended the class with a run to the hill (or in my case what feels like a mountain) and had to run up it 3 times.  It was a great workout and I survived, I'm proud of myself! 

I may not be the fittest person in the world, but I am committed to sticking to this.  By the end of the 8 weeks my goal is to be able to make it up that hill all 3 times without stopping!

Besides bootcamp, I haven't really been up to much this past week.  Next week will be a busy one for me.  Cole has his 3 month check up, it is my birthday and I will be going to a BBQ at the child care centre that I work at :)

Hope everyone is doing well!  Feel free to leave me a comment!
