alliterations make me smile :)
On a not-so-happy note, we haven't been able to make it to church since Christmas. (insert very unhappy face here) Every weekend someone is sick. This week it was John who woke up at night with a queasy stomach. Last week it was me with my FOURTH breast infection since Carse was born. The week before it was me with the flu. The week before it was me with a breast infection and Ryder puking. Also, Ryder has had a steady cold since we went downstate for Christmas (he has asthma so colds are big concern with him. This is only the second cold he's had since being born that he didn't start wheezing from so I'm trying not to complain about the snotty mess too much) and Carson has had a cold since he was born. sigh. We have not been a healthy family lately. Cold and flu season is kicking my butt.
Today has been a day of ups and down. Actually this whole week has been that way.
Last night and the night before the whole family had a powwow in our bed at 2:30am. Both nights. I am exhausted to say the least. Ryder has always had trouble staying asleep (night terrors, nightmares, sleep not-quite-walking-but-rolling-around-and-sitting-up etc) but these last few nights he has been waking up wide awake and rarin to go. Plus Carso has been staying awake for extended amounts of time at night too. Like being awake from 11pm til 1 or 2am. I am beyond sick of hearing "Good thing you don't need much sleep right?" GRRRR. Yes, I am a night owl and can never fall asleep before midnight, but this means that when I wake up at 6 or 7am with the kids I am totally exhausted. I function because I have to function. When you are a mom whose kids don't sleep well you don't get to just take naps or sleep in (no duh lol) and you still have to do all the things you would do if you actually got sleep every now and then. But I'll not get any more in detail about that or I'll spend this whole post ranting.
I finally got around to organizing (most) or the kids clothes this week. Switching out the outgrown stuff and bringing in the new. It's crazy how fast they grow. Carson is already in 3-6 month clothes!!! He is such a big boy, I can't wait to see how huge he is at his 2 month checkup this week. Organizing the clothes got them out of my room and into their appropriate dressers and closets so now you can actually see the bedroom floor. Instant mood-lifter-upper :)
My lemon spinach lasagna dinner totally flopped. :( or actually more like >:( because flopped dinners make me crabby. Well they make me crabby when I'm sleep-deprived.. normally I can usually see the humor in the sitch. Not today. Major downer.
Right now John is taking Ryder for a drive and some father-son time. This makes me happy :)
