There is just so much going on in my life right now, I think I’m going to go mad one of these days. My sister’s wedding is in a month, it’s 4 hours drive from us and I’m making the wedding cake. I’ve increased my weightloss efforts. I have to start working in two weeks (cry, cry, cry). And a few other more minor things and did I mention I have two very demanding kids, I’m sleep deprived and oh so tired!
Shae turned 14 weeks last weeks, already 15 weeks tomorrow, so it was vaccination time again. The little princess was not impressed, first she cried her breathe away and then she started screeching like a banshee! We also had a few bad, bad nights, although there has been terrible sleep regression since she turned 3 months. She now weighs 5.5 kg and her length is 60 cm, head circumference @ 39 cm. My petite little girly. I’m dreading going back to work, not that I don’t love my work, but the guilt, the worry about how she will do at daycare, and me missing her so much will be so tough. I don’t have a choice though, so will have to put on my big girl panties and deal with it. Does crying burn more calories?
Jamie is going through a tough time. Defying us as far he goes, not wanting to go to school, not wanting to bath….eat….sleep….listen. Everything is a battle. Then there are the sweet moments, him picking me flowers, singing me songs, talking sweet words to Shae, holding hands and cuddling with me. We have to exercise a lot of patience and care…we’ve been extra careful to give him loads of attention since Shae’s arrival, but seems he needs even more. Pushing boundaries has become his second name… So last week we pushed back. He didn’t want to bath so we said no television until he is clean. He didn’t budge, so we didn’t either. We had a dirty little boy crying himself to sleep in my arms, but the next evening he bathed without a problem.
I love my kiddies to bits, but sjoe, they require hard work, blood, sweat and tears…not that I’d trade them for anything!
