So Tired…Kids Always End Up In My Bed
Today was an amazing day!
Last year we lost 2 of our 3 dogs to old age and cancer. Our third dog, Jake a chocolate lab, disappeared after losing his 2 best friends. We searched for him high and low for months, hospitals, local vets, and animal rescues. After a long while, we lost hope, and determined that he left home and must have died of a broken heart.
I'm in the mountains with a bunch of friends and LOTS of kids. My
family alone is 7 this week as we are watching my niece Jade. I love
having her and hopefully we will share an amazing holiday together.
I promised David that this would not be a working, "computer" weekend,
but I wanted to give you a quick update. I'll keep it short.
So I think my blog offended a few people and was misinterpreted by some. So often the tone of a story can be lost in transcript. I would never make excuses for behavior. I was simply saying to embrace all your emotions and make light of even the dark ones.
I'm sitting in a café on Montana Ave - enjoying a café latte and savoring every moment that I have alone. I just finished my Pilates class, my only other time by myself… I actually had to leave the house with my laptop and escape to a café to try to get some work done. I cannot escape at home to take care of business, and I have too much guilt if I am not tending to the kids. Aaahhh the work/life challenge! I feel like there is so little of me to go around at home, I cannot possibly allow my children to compete with my computer.
I threw away all the baby bottles in my house yesterday! I was afraid that my kids would need them and that fear kept me from doing it! Last night went pretty well. They cried for only a minute, and then took the sippy cup. I talked Rain through it most of the day. I was so nervous, but she really impressed me. My son on the other hand, skipped the sippy and just passed out, Thank God!
I'm home having my morning coffee and my housekeeper is wondering what the heck is wrapped around by belly. I just received a new shipment of Tauts and I am wearing it today to check the comfort and fit. This blog isn't just intended for pregnant women, maybe you know someone who is expecting, but more importantly, it's about working.
I don’t know if he misses me when I am not around, busy working, or spending time with my kids. He’s rarely happy to see me when I get home. He doesn’t know how to express his feeling to me. I’ve noticed lately that he prefers to be with her….
Today I realized that…
My son is in love with the housekeeper!!!
I have spent the last hour going through the many comments from yesterday's blog.
