Congratulations on your bubbit! (We've taken to calling babies 'bubbits' around here- yet another odd term peculiar to our family. Our youngest, about to turn 2, is The Bubbit. ;) ANYWAY... Congrats.) I find it helps to carry a notebook and take advantage of the natural downtime associated with motherhood, e.g. sitting in the pediatrician's waiting room. The time issue and the issue of getting to the end of a particularly hard day and feeling like you've got a head full of pudding where your brain used to be certainly do put a dent in the ol' conlanging, but slow progress is still progress. It's nice to be remembered, especially when I've only been lurking around for quite a while. Mia.
