So I haven't blogged in awhile. I wish I had some awesome excuse but the truth is, I'm just really really tired. Three months of getting up all night is starting to take it's toll. After the kids are in bed (way too late because it's summer) I think about walking downstairs to blog and I can't get off the couch. I'm too tired to walk across the room and pick up the tv remote...tired. I would tell you more about how tired I am but as Ashley always says, "Tired gets no respect."
Plus, I have totally overbooked my kids. What else is new? We do swimming lessons, gymnastics, sports camp, piano lessons and the gym. I can't say no to anything and because I was so afraid of them being bored--I spend my days driving them from thing to thing and yelling at them to "get in the damn car!"
I love watching Sammie at our poor man's gymnastics--it brings out the stage mom in me--she's a natural.
This little butterball is my car seat baby:
I think back to how lovingly I cared for my first baby Luke. The whole day was about him. We had a routine where he got bathed in the morning, rubbed down with lotion, we read books, napped, etc etc.
Buster is lucky to get a "mexi-shower" every three days or so. That is where I put him under the running water in the kitchen sink and shampoo his hair. Then it's back in the swing or the bouncer and then the car seat. Poor kid. Yes, he's totally fat. Once the hair goes, party's over. Good thing I have a huge crush on him.
When we are home, I'm usually picking up messes and the kids are sneaking downstairs to watch iCarly (a total big kid show.) I've given in to it.
So that's where I've been folks. I'm livin' the dream. Did anyone watch the Men Tell All? I was too tired. What did I miss? Did I mention how tired I am....
