Is anyone else feeling like a loser with everyone pinning, blogging and facebooking their acheivements, or is it just me? Ok, I don't really feel like a loser because I know that right now in my life I don't have a lot of time at home to accomplish these things. Either that or I don't know how to multi task and have too much guilt for not playing with my kids for x amount of time. Okay, it's a combination of needing to take care of my 2 1/2 year old who doesn't nap and my almost 11 month old who is down to one nap and not organizing my time properly when they are awake. I literally have about zero me time (at home, I do get out alone bc of the babysitter, hallelujah!) until 10pm and who wants to do anything then?
Ellie is in that, " I HAVE to know what you're doing and I will cry and pull on your leg and fall over backwards because I have my head tilted back too far trying to look up at you " stage. If we're just hanging out around the house she is fine. The second I try to cook, unload the dishwasher, brush my teeth or use the bathroom she is all up in my business. One thing I CAN do is take a shower. She will finally leave me alone to do that. She used to cry and try to climb into the tub. I can see into the future and know that someday soon I will be productive and creative and my children will continue to grow with indepence. Whitney is mostly there.
I am a little jealous of all the cute things everyone is doing. Take my SIL. I'm too lazy to create a link so you can check out her blog, The Vandewater Voyage under my blog list and check out Abby Maddy Inspired too. That lady can multi task in a crafty way! Any way, my SIL has posted some food ideas that are easy and yummy and I have been trying them. It's easier for me to steal her ideas than to scour Pinterest myself! Works for me!
I'm hoping once we get to Omaha I can get Whitney into a preschool of some sort and Ellie will allow me to do things without holding her. Maybe then I can buy one of those sewing machine things and cook with more than 3-5 ingredients. For now I will dabble and be happy that my kids are well and my house is moderately clean. Clean enough that you won't be grossed out if you unexpectedly dropped in. And if anyone wants to do so feel free, we are ready for company every day. Desperate for company!
|I got it on camera! Whitney can twist her tounge sideways and does it out of habit all the time. She doesn't even know she does it. In fact, if I ask her to show me she can't do it.|
