I am tired....

I am tired and I know this because...

-When my toddler came into my bed this morning and then left and then I saw a wet spot, I let myself believe it was from his sippy cup until I could get up the energy to change the sheets.

-Last week I ironed the kids clothes for school and this week, I found clothes that did not need to be ironed.

-I considered sending my child without lunch instead of making a can of tuna.

-I tried to convince the receptionist at my dentist office that I didn't need to come in for a new retainer and I could just wear the one that my son broke.

-I nearly cried when I went to go to the bathroom and realized one of those strings inside the bathrobe fell into the toliet. I had nothing to wear until my one pair of jeans that fit were done in the dryer.
Solution- I just cut the string.

-I nearly cried tears of joy when I found a clean pair of underwear for myself- you would think I would have more- they come in packages of 7!

-I have been smelling my laundry to see if I left it in the washer too long without drying it a lot lately.

-I broke down and bought white chocolate reese's peanut butter cups (my favorite) from Walmart to keep myself awake- oh, yeah and cause I love'em.

-And not to out anyone, but why do little boys pee everywhere but in the toliet?

-I do not want to brush out my hair anymore, so on a whim, I got over 8 inches cut off!

And then my toddler ran in my room and told me that his dog(toy of course) is feeling better, because he prayed for him and all I could think was these are the best days of my life!
I will cherish every moment.
"Children are a blessing from the Lord, and the fruit of the womb is His reward." Psalms 127:3

And just a side note- sorry about all the pee incidences in this post- I am usually a little more conservative - just had to share.

And once again, if you see me in the post office with no make-up, stir-up pants and an oversized winnie the pooh sweatshirt- get me help!
Sorry if you are wearing that outfit right now.

  1. I feel for you because sometimes I go through the same thing :-) It can be tiresome, but it's so very rewarding :-)

  2. ROFL.... are you preggo? Hee hee

  3. NO- I knew someone might say that and I forgot to put the disclaimer in- of course- it is you!!!
    I am just trying to adjust my no-schedule lifestyle to a scheduled lifestyle because of school.
    It's a good thing.

  4. How funny... you are clever to cut the string!!!

  5. I haven't worn makeup since the day before my twins were born- almost 10 months ago! I don't even know where my makeup bag is anymore. Maybe underneath the foot high pile of ironing or perhaps underneath the stack of books I haven't touched in the same 10 months or probably underneath the stack of dihes I haven't gotten to in 2 days! It's a good thing my husband appreciates my "natural" beauty!!

    S[eaking of twins, my sweet boy just climbed on top of a cardboard box that has been sitting in my bedroom since the day we moved in- 3 months ago! What a proud moment!

  6. I am tired too! I think this year is catching up with me!

    Peaceful wishes,

  7. Just so you know I end up smelling my laundry a lot too to see if I need to rewash it. Another mom & I were just talking the other day about how much money we could save on laundry detergent if we weren't constantly rewashing things that get forgotten in the washer.

  8. Didn't have your email address anymore. Yes, I am homeschooling. :o)

  9. i'm a follower and i'd buy a blender!

  10. ooh- i had to smile at some of your experiences- they truly mirror my own. you are not alone! :-)

  11. Oh man, I feel your pain. We've had a girl on maternity leave and I've had to pick up a couple of her graveyard shifts each week for the past two months. If someone interupts me I can't even remember what I was talking about 30 seconds ago. Sad.
    I hope you get some sleep! Can you talk someone into babysitting for a few hours for a good nap? =) No? Me neither. haha

  13. Haha oh no! I can relate with the wet spot and the toddler.

  14. I had a good laugh over your 'tired' list...every mom starts out with good intentions and then 'life is what happens when we're making other plans' LOL

    Thanks, Becky Jane
    Raising kids can be a lot like weeding the rose bed...well worth it, but...OUCH!

  15. Just send the kid with the whole can of tuna and let the teacher open it!!!lol ;)
