Week 3: The one where I fell off the wagon a bit

My 3-year-olds are currently fake crying at me because I turned off the TV and told them it was time to get up and get moving. That pretty much sums up how this week went for me, too. I’m not sure if it’s because I spent a day working the desk and was more sedentary, […]

What was your longest uninterrupted stretch of “me time” this week?

What’s that? I mean, I played video games for about 20 minutes toward the end of the boys’ afternoon nap yesterday. And I still manage to use the bathroom and shower without an audience, which I hear will go away at some point. Oh, and I usually read for a few minutes before bed every […]

Today, I am grateful for …

So many things. I am grateful that after an extremely fussy day yesterday, the boys slept soundly and through the whole night. It was a rare day for them, but I think it’s because they got so little nap time the day before. We should be able to get back to our normal routine today. […]

Have you tried something new recently?

For me: I’ve started driving for Uber to help make some extra cash on the side. For the boys: We are in a phase of maybe whittling down to one nap a day. So some days we have the usual two, and others it’s one. Both have been interesting.

Describe your child’s devilish side

I think I’ll focus on Lucas here. The fact is, Lucas can be kind of a bully. Stealing toys out of his brother’s hands. Stealing the pacifier right out of Henry’s mouth. Screaming in jealousy the moment I pick up Henry for whatever reason. If he weren’t so cute, it probably wouldn’t be as funny […]

If you could do anything tomorrow, what would it be?

Sleep. For, like, 12 hours. My crazy old lady cat started in with the meowing and running around the room at about 2:30 this morning, so I’ve been awake off and on ever since. And a meeting during the boys’ morning nap time means no sleep for me until they go to bed tonight! It’s […]

What was the last thing your child cried about?

Lucas cried it out this morning to let me know he was tired of working on lifting his big baby noggin and was ready for a nap. Henry cried when I changed his shirt after waking him up for breakfast. I’m a horrible human being 😉

Are you making time to take care of yourself? How?

I shower most days. Does that count? Since the boys starting sleeping through the night and having a more regular nap routine, it’s been easier to do things like shower, blog, eat, etc. And after I put them down for the night, I have time to watch a show or two of my own choosing […]

What was something you couldn’t do today?

Between the black  cat continually stepping on my pregnant stomach (which hurts like I can’t explain since he’s kind of a fatty), the white cat not acknowledging the time change and some work stuff that popped up first thing in the morning… Take as much advantage of the extra hour we gained as I wanted.

A decision you made today…

Well, it’s early yet,  but I did decide to get a little extra nap time on the couch this morning after my crazy old lady cat decided to drag me out of bed at 4:55 a.m. No manners, that one.
