Happy New Year!
Typically I do an end of the year wrap-up blog post before the new year, but the holiday season is basically one long whirlwind of cheese, get-togethers, and mad dashes to Walmart for things you forgot. Hence, today’s post.
I don’t think I’m saying anything new when I tell you that 2016 was rough. Between everyone being stressed out about the election; not being able to state your opinion without being flogged by keyboard judge, jury, and executioners; the many attacks across our nation and the world; the loss of musicians, actors, writers and public figures we grew up with; and people losing dear family members and friends, I was not sad to see 2016 go.
Last year was also a great year. So many great things happened to the Huffman clan:
We welcomed our newest addition!
I became a SAHM (who works two days a week).
I firmly believe leaving my full-time job of five years was the best decision for our family. Has it been easy? Oh hecks naw! Has it always been a blast? Hahahahahahaha! No. But has it been worth it? Abso-freaking-lutely! I love my kiddos and I’m so glad I get to spend this time with them. I truly feel like I am being molded and shaped into a new person. These adorable little turkeys are teaching me what real love is, patience, self-control, and to not sweat the small stuff.
Huff the Tot is Potty-Trained!
Y’all, potty training was an interesting road we traveled down this year. It was exhausting, overwhelming, time-consuming, and I thought it might break me a time or two. But Huff the Tot is FINALLY potty-trained! It is such a glorious feeling to only have one diaper to change! Don’t get me wrong–the kid still wears a diaper at nap time and bedtime–but she regularly takes herself to the bathroom and hasn’t had an accident in WEEKS! That was a huge weight lifted this year!
And, there were several other great things that happened in 2016! Don’t believe me? Just watch:
