Parenting 2.0

Posts Tagged ‘working mommy


It’s been a while since I posted any videos. It’s not that I haven’t been taking any, it’s just finding  time to scroll through them, choose my favs, upload them to YouTube and then write about it, takes a little time and brain power: neither of which I have  much of an extra supply of these days.  Yah, this whole “working full time outside of the house” gig sure is cutting into my blogging time. Geesh. Anyway, below are a few links to some of the latest Niko vids. Enjoy.

Baby Niko Walks for the First Time (0:14)

  • Ok, ok, I realize he’s not actually walking unassisted, but he is walking independent of Mama and Dada by holding on to and pushing a toy walker. Go Niko Go!

Baby Niko Plays with Frasier the Poodle (1:03)

  • On this particular day, Niko discovered Frasier’s toy and for the first time used it to entice Frasier to play.

Baby Niko Finds the Poodle (0:31)

  • This may not sound like much, but when Niko finally showed that he understood who and where Frasier was, it was a big deal to us, his trusty parents.

Baby Niko Laughs at a Strange Noise (0:57)

  • ‘Nuff said. Who can resist a laughing Niko baby? I think I detect a flavour of a fake laugh here too? Is that even possible for a baby? At one point Niko laughs so hard it looks like he’s going to choke on his giggles…

SAHM I am, (not anymore). If you’re another bloggy mommy reading this post you’ll know exactly what I’m writing about when I reference SAHM, and if you’re just some random person, friend or family member you may be wondering WTH? (And for that matter now may be wondering about WTH, too?) Well, even the bloggy mommy’s might not be familiar with that one. Basically it’s my G Rated version of the more profane MSN lingo – buy my WTH simply means “what the heck”. And SAHM? Stay at Home Mom.

So yes, WTH!  I was officially back to work last week, and my maternity vacation leave with Niko officially ended. How, I wonder? How did this happen? Well, that’s life for you. One day simply falls after another and before you know it a whole year has gone by and here I am back to battling rush hour and trying to get to work on time. Back to primping myself in the early morning: goodbye, lazy pajama mornings, au revoir bloggy mornings, and adios to my constant one on one time with the little monkey that has grown closer and closer to my heart by the day hour minute  – aka Niko. *Sniff sniff.*

Alas, such is life. And really we are SO lucky in Canada to have a whole year off, to bond and ease ourselves into this crazy world of parenting. I mean my sister-in-law had to go back to work after only three months, and that was longer than most people get in the States.  Usually it’s something like six weeks or basically the time it takes to blink in that first rush of bringing home the new baby.  So, I’m not complaining. I know I’ve been very lucky to have shared all this time with my little tyke. So lucky. So many memories. Wow, what a great year it’s been. And now, a new chapter begins. Niko’s new life in daycare. My life as a WOTHM: but there has to be a better acronym than that.  Yes, now I’m a working outside the house mom, not just a working mom (WM), because isn’t that what I’ve been doing all of last year anyway? Yup, now I’m a mom that faces the traffic, packs her babe up in the morning and rushes out the door to the real world, or at least the world that is my current reality.
