BBQ and Poo   Do you ever feel like you are spinning your wheels?  Like you put a ton of effort into something  and then the universe is like… nope, not today.

Sugar Goose   Georgia has had a series of rough sleeping nights.  Last night she did pretty well and slept from 1230 to 5.  The sleep deprivation is starting to impact my brain function though.  I can’t remember certain words.   I forget things I’ve said to people.  It’s like I’m a tiny bit drunk. Speaking … Continued

Award for breakfast   Last night was the first night in a while I got dishes done and coffee set up before I went to bed.  This morning I woke up to the kitchen not being a mess and coffee only one push away.   YES!  On top of that, I ordered groceries last night, and … Continued

Don’t Worry   Last night Henry wanted to help with Georgia’s bath.  I told him in addition to helping me, he could be the bath DJ…he loves music. So he comes in a few minutes later with the phone and starts playing a version of the “Don’t worry be happy” song.  What a nice choice … Continued

Sugar lies   I know I am probably jinxing it, but Georgia has started sleeping in much larger chunks.  The past few nights she slept from 1130pm until about 430am.  I set my alarm for 3 just to check on her…To be honest if you gave me the option to check on her every 20 … Continued

Kick my own butt   I dropped Josh off yesterday at 5am.  We won’t see him again until the first week of September.  It was fun for him to see how much Georgia changed… it will be fun in September too. She had her first real smile last week so his visit home was perfect timing.  She … Continued

Future Arm Bars   I set my alarm to get up early to write.   By early I mean during Georgia’s morning sleep interval.  But she tricked me and was awake when I woke up.  Right now her night feeding routing is approximately 8pm, 11pm, 3am, 6am, 930am….then who knows after that.   Today though, it was … Continued

Pee Party   Georgia is 5 weeks old today.   Logan, my oldest, has been very interested in helping with his baby sister.  For the past week or so, he has helped me get her dressed for the day and ready for bed at night.  I’ve taught him how to change her diapers and get on … Continued

White space…not white noise.   Two days in a row I am starting this email with I’m tired…but I’m suspicious this is the stage of pregnancy I am in.  The more I sleep the more I am sleepy. Today I am 37 weeks pregnant.  According to my pregnancy apps the baby is 6-ish pounds and … Continued

Busy or…   I woke up this morning tired, I could have stayed in bed for a few more hours.  But I wanted to get some work done before everyone got up.   Plus Bonny was whimpering so it was time to rock and roll. My schedule is mostly free today.  I did this by design … Continued

ET…and he’s home.   It’s a little bit of a blur.  Thursday afternoon the boys came home from school and worked on posters for Daddy.  They skipped football practice because they were too excited.   They must have asked a million times when we were going to leave for the airport.  The answer was 930pm. Around … Continued

330am   It’s 330 am.  I am awake. I have heartburn and the baby is awake inside my belly…but I’m sure I’m up because today is a big day. Funny enough… I really don’t think I will believe Josh is home until he literally is in sight.  In fact, yesterday morning the Navy made his … Continued

3-2-1   Quick update. The plumbing situation is fixed.  Monday morning they came and pumped the clog from the septic system, fixed something with the filter, and now there is no disgusting poop water in my shower. Check. Josh will either be home very late tomorrow night or sometime Friday.  I don’t know because the Navy hasn’t … Continued

Poo Party   I hope all of the moms had a great Mother’s Day.  I think in order for me to keep a positive outlook, I probably need to re-evaluate what counts as a great Mother’s Day. I got to spend an hour sitting on my porch with my mom.  That was nice.  My boys … Continued

Mother’s Day Simple   It’s Mother’s Day.  I’m sitting on the couch wrapped in a nice blanket, drinking coffee.  It is cloudy and I am grateful because I got super sun burnt on Friday, then I overheated on Saturday watching the kids’ football games.   I wore pants to cover my sunburn but ultimately the 85 … Continued

Baby camping….   I finally slept a little better.  I opened a window and it cooled my room off a lot.  Although temperature is a factor, I truly think anticipation is the disrupter of my sleep.  Josh will be here this time next week.  Worse case he will be arriving exactly one week from today. I talked to … Continued

garden birth….   The past few nights, my sleep hasn’t been great.  I have heartburn and can’t seem to fall into deep sleep.  I feel like I am dreaming while I am awake and hours just pass with no rest.   Figure this could be pregnancy or anticipation of the upcoming events. I’m tired though…no doubt … Continued

Sucker punched   Logan was attacked at the playground at rece​​​​​​​ss.  The kid choked him and then punched him multiple times in the face.  I guess the kid came out of nowhere and grabbed him from behind. ​​​​​​​ When I picked Logan up, he was very upset.  He only wanted to talk to dad or his … Continued
