I’m so flipping tired
I was driving home after dropping off Viv at camp and thought, what is this feeling I have? oh, yes, joy, calm, I’m rested!! It’s been years, but I was reminded of MUCH MORE rested I am with a 6 and 9 year old when we recently stayed at my friend who has a 7 month old and a 2 year old.
the old days. Brand New Rex..wonder what happened to that blanket?
I was so happy to snuggle with the big, fat baby thighs and I felt AWESOME that I could help my friend and get her baby boy to sleep 3 times! I still got it!!. I told my kids, “smell that neck, nothing like it!”. But, man o man. That juggle of two small kids and her husband was working.. woof. No wonder I just started thinking clearly. So, I’m posting this video because though I do get more sleep now, I know there are those out there that are still in the trenches.
My kitchen Monday morning is always a grim site. Today, was no exception. Did I get right too it? No, I’m punting. I hate a messy kitchen, but as my daughter keeps reminding me, No one likes Mondays.
Sometimes it seems like what’s the point?
Reminded me of my Mom Zamboni video
Yes, you heard me right. Here is how I did it. ( sort of) It really worked ( sort of)
I also bribed him with a doggie. Lots him grunting on the john “mama, ( bearing down, then release) Can I have a doggie now?”
Ironically, once he was fully toilet trained he said he didn’t want a doggie.
Me: Why not?
Rex: ” I don’t want to clean up their poo.”
See, no one does.
Sometimes it pays off to do a search of yourself on youtube. I just stumbled across this interview I did years ago. It was pre Rex because I have shorter hair and I was a size smaller. Done in NYC I’ve never seen it. Kind of fun. Enjoy
