And I can’t think straight- in my head! So I really need to blog more. This whole thing was set up to showcase my kiddo’s new feats in life. The little guy is nearly 18 months old now. He plays well with others!
I babysit 2 little girls in my home 2 days a week and boy is it good practice for having a larger family. Let’s see- a 3 year old, an 18 month old, and a 10 month old. The younger two are actually the easiest because they don’t talk. They eat and sleep and poop and crawl/ walk around and play with toys. It’s fabulous! My guy plays the innocent victim every time some kid takes his toy or crawls on him and plays with his face. He just sits there and doesn’t quite know what to do. The little ones giggle at nearly anything you do that’s silly. I enjoy the little part-time job. Plus it keeps me on top of the housework knowing that someone else’s little kids are coming over and they put everything in their mouth.
In other news, my inlaws in Southern Utah were without power for nearly a whole day because of a wildfire. They’ve got power now. Grandma’s are great for babbling and talking with toddlers on the phone when mommies need to use the bathroom. I can’t even use the bathroom without my little one crying and pounding on the door. I open the door and see 3 kids standing wide- eyed at me every time I come out. Some time alone, please!
So I get up between 5:30 and 6:45 am everyday and I hate to admit, but it’s good for me and I like that I am becoming an automatic earlybird. I should go walking with the stoller or something now while my hubby is still sleeping away in a big nice cozy king sized bed.
I guess at the end of the day (which is now getting closer to 10pm rather than 11pm) I still have a million tasks left to complete, but I realize that sleep is the most important one. I am getting better at just stopping and realizing that I can put things off until tomorrow (or later in most cases) because I just want to go to sleep at the end of a hard day.
