Mommy and Me Yoga

Ian and I had our first Mommy and Me Yoga class today.  It was a really special event for me, as the yoga instructor for the Mommy and Me class is the same instructor who taught my Prenatal Yoga class and the Yoga for Fertility class that I attended during my last two years of infertility treatments.  She has been an amazing support.  Her kind and calming energy has worked wonders for me throughout the years and, today, it worked wonders on Ian too.  He was so relaxed that he delighted the rest of the class with a symphony of flatulence.  I was really embarrassed at first...especially because he tends to smile and laugh every time he lets out a loud bout of gas.  But all of the other "mommies" were laughing and so I was able to relax and enjoy the humor of the situation.  Ian is quickly teaching me that I've got to just let go and roll with the punches.  He's going to turn my world all topsy turvy...it's his job...he's a child.  I need to learn to enjoy the ride...and I'm already starting to get there.

How fun that she's been your teacher through this whole journey! I wish I could hear little Ian's (is it bad that I still kind of think of him as Hamish...) farts in real life! I'm so happy for you momma!
