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.
