I felt so accomplished, but it was abruptly dismissed.
Probably a mom has experienced this many times. My feeling of accomplishment was taken by surprise snow. I despise surprise snow when I have to go somewhere. Well it was a crisp 18 degrees this morning; so the snow keeps on giving. Enjoy your Wednesday.
Another comic of my life. It keeps me drawing even if it’s simple drawings.
All moms in the world may understand this…
But my daughter loves to clean. She got a set of toy cleaning tools for Christmas from her grandma, and Elizabeth uses them constantly. It’s nice usually, she likes to clean up her own messes and gets upset when she cannot get it clean.
However when you want to relax and your toddler decides it’s cleaning time you cannot say no, because you want to continue her love of cleaning; so that you will have a helper in the future.
So I mustered up the energy and I mopped. The floor is clean but I was exhausted.
I have been blessed in the past. I have always gotten sick before or after the baby got sick. I didn’t think much of it it, but now I realize it was a blessing. Because now we are both sick with a terrible cold. I wish my mama was up here to take care of me and my baby. Because sometimes I just want to crawl into a hole and hide, but I can’t do that; especially since while she is sick she wants mommy all the time.
So I guess this sickness is making me miss my mama more than usual. Love you mama ❤️
Bedtime is still a challenge. What entails for getting in bed: clean up the place area, do a little bit of dancing to get our wiggles out, shower, brush our teeth,￼￼ and then go upstairs. By that time Mama is tired and is ready to go to sleep; however, baby is wide awake and full of energy￼. So the pre-bedtime consist of playing with toys until she is ready for the bedtime ‘food￼’.
So I sit here waiting for my baby to get tired enough for bedtime. So all those moms whose days are long and hard; just think I’m still awake with a happy baby and I probably won’t be going to bed for another hour or two.￼￼ Be happy hour child has a set bedtime. 😊
But I will say I get 8 to 10 hours of sleep. So I am doing better than those moms with the babies who don’t sleep through the night.
Unless she is sick she has been sleeping through the night since she was two months old. Occasionally I don’t get all those hours of sleep, but a majority of the time I still get a decent eight hours straight sleep.￼
I guess this post is for all the moms out there. We are all vary but we all have the wonderful job of raising our little ones. They’re so sweet! And my baby knows it!￼
I made a dumb deal with my husband when the baby was born…I would change all the diapers but he has to deal with any dead animals, spiders, etc. I thought it was a great deal in the beginning but now my life is forever diaper based. 😓
He occasionally does it…begrudgingly, but he does.
I tried to make this task not so dreary; I put the trash can away from my changing station. Mostly I did that to keep the trash can away from my smart cookie, but I try and make the diapers in with a toss. However I’m realizing that if I miss I need to walk over and throw it away quickly, because I’ve caught my sneaky thing trying to grab them through the gate.🤢 Not something a baby should play with.
It used to be basketball…swish, swish. Now it’s diapers…smelly, smelly.
