It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.
Do you ever do too much? And think you will be okay? That your body will let you keep going and pushing through? Apparently, I’ve forgotten that waking up twice a night to feed a newborn takes a lot out of a person. And, I haven’t really had the chance to rest and nap.
Saturday was the straw that broke the camel’s back. But, really it was likely the week leading up to it.
Tuesday and Wednesday school was canceled again for snow days. Thursday and Friday were already furlough days for the teachers, so we were stuck inside for three days. Friday was operation plan for E’s second birthday. I baked and cleaned while all four girls were home.
Saturday morning, we went to the circus. We had special corporate suite seats and couldn’t turn it down. It was fun and a busy morning. Daddy wore E and I wore B (Phillips area isn’t stroller friendly at all. We learned that the hard way one time!)
We went home and finished up preparing for her party and then had the party. We had dinner and N and I started to feel yucky. Let’s just say this…I have about 8 loads of preschooler bedding to wash and I’m running on crackers + applesauce + Pedialyte for the past two days.
N seems to have recovered much faster than me (lucky her), but I’m trying to get better and trying to promise myself to remember to rest and take it easier.
All of that to say, this will be a daddy and me post because I think he earned if after cleaning up after N so many times!
