Sometimes I just don't know what to make of this crazy life I lead. Daily struggles with children to eat and sleep. And forget about letting me have a little bit of a break in there.
Libby hasn't been sleeping. Doesn't matter what I do, she sleeps for 30 minutes at a time and then is up. I am going CRAZY!!! Really, it's a good thing I don't believe in drugging my children for sleep purposes...although sometimes I wonder ;)
Amelia has been sick off and on since Thursday night. I took her to the doc today and it was decided that she had a virus and became dehydrated so she just keeps being sick. Ugh. My poor girl.
Seth has been super clingy lately too. He has taken to petting me and I want to scream and run out of my skin every time he does it. He also is very defiant and tells me "NO" every time I ask him to do something.
Seth and Amelia aren't eating a lot -- well, all they want are cookies and stuff. I can't say that I blame them, but it is certainly making meal time difficult.
I am sure that the kids are just reacting to my stress. Because Libby won't sleep, I can't work. I have 5 slings to make before next Monday and my serger is acting up. I am going to see if I can bribe the man to look at it tonight. So, I am stressed. I have so much to do and not enough time to do it.
Jeremy and I got to talk for the first time in a week last night. Seriously, we haven't had any time just the two of us in a week. And, even last night, we had about 1 hour before Libby woke up.
But, despite the frustration I feel, they are making me laugh. They are still so funny, and it's a good thing. It is one of the things I look forward to and count on every day.
