So a quick (and I mean quick) note to let you all know where I've been. I miss blogging and certainly have many posts that I'd like to write. I have a little problem though. You see those two kids in the picture above? Sweet aren't they? Well as sweet as they are, they are needy. Needy, needy, needy. "Mommy play with me, mommy wipe my bumm, mommy I'm thirsty, mommy I need a snack, mommy mommy mommy." Ah yes, the familiar tone that rings in my ear. And now, it rings in my ear all day because both girls have decided that napping is for babies. Yep, my world has been turned upside down, literally.
I have no time to do anything!!!!! The only reason I'm posting right now is because I got lucky and Mattea is reading a book to Paloma. But holy buckets - life is sure different now. And I can't help but say that I am sad. I used to be so good about staying up on laundry, dishes, cleaning, bills, projects, etc. That is a joke. My kids wake up in the morning and don't stop until their little head hits the pillow. I'm working hard at encouraging them to play alone otherwise my whole house will fall apart - but Paloma lasts for only about 15 min. in her room and she comes out bugging for a playmate.
Keep me in your prayers this week as we continue to adjust. Mommy has been a bit cranky not to mention downright tired. Where these kids get their energy I'll never know, but I'd sure like to find some. I now find coffee to be an afternoon staple instead of an afternoon treat. Oh heaven help me.....
