Oh boy have we been staying home! The Lord sure has a sense of humor!
Today was a great day. I had a real awakening Thursday night when I read about Marie. You should read too. In addition, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood (thanks PBS) taught me a catchy tune to sing before blowing a fuse (which I ashamedly admit usually happens more than once a day with this one momma caring for two babies).
My stupid yelling and fussing and screaming (ouch... that hurts to admit) at Rita for "wrecking" the house and "un-doing" is so lame and immature. Really...I'm so blessed she has the intelligence and "want" to help around the house; just so happens her helping usually results in a mess of some sort (not unlike myself!!).
Jonah napped today. Truth be told this baby LOVES his carseat. Like he sleeps for four hours instead of 45 minutes. So what the heck, let the baby sleep!
I'm getting ready for bed and the laundry hampers are no longer overflowing, the leftovers were eaten for supper (HUGE for us), our bed has clean sheets, Rita had clean PJs or "BJs" as she says (usually there is a "BJ" shortage in this house), I swept the living room so Tyler wouldn't have to, me and Rita had some great learning time and she is proficiently identifying both circles and triangles (!) at 19 1/2 months old, the kitchen is messy but clean, the bathroom counter and sinks are sparkling (but don't look too close) and the only plans we have this weekend are mass and homemade donuts with Mamzie and Gramps Sunday morning!
Jonah made six weeks this week. His cooing and smiling has me melting all day long. Such a sweet soul!
Life is finally settling down.
It feels so good to be able to grasp for a routine.
Did I mention I am about to check-off a Bucket List Goal?! Well, I guess I need a post on what my Bucket List is, but that will be another day (or another midnight). So, I'll end the suspense.
I'm going to learn to speak Cajun French! I'm SO grateful to have a supportive husband. The babies will have great Dada time while I learn, I just know it.
Anyway, my parched mouth needs water and my eyes need sleep. Happy Weekending to you!
