Ugh y'all - I'm a crap blogger lately. I really do intend to get on here and write things but as all you mommy's know - that is easier said then done. I have more tasks then hours in a day and usually don't get a chance to even fire up the computer once I walk through the door at home. Eventually it will get better but for now you get these sporadic bursts from me instead.
But hey, absence makes the heart grow fonder, right?
Thank you to everyone for the prayers and kind words regarding our sick spell and Joey's friend passing away. It really devastated him and I don't know if he will ever truly be the same. The poor guy cried the entire 10 hour drive back from Mississippi and most of the day Easter Sunday. I couldn't even be there for him either since Jellybean went and started teething last week which meant he kept shoving his hands in his mouth and thus came his first upper respiratory infection. Along with his first time on Amoxicillin. So he was miserable, Joey was miserable and I just wanted five minutes to myself after a week alone with Jellybean 24/7.
Since then I have had the pleasure of not only having phlegm coughed up all over me but also getting doused in phlegmy vomit. Ahhh...the joys of motherhood. My son also spent most of the week smelling like an 85 year old man between the vapor baths and Vick's Baby Rub - in addition to his thin hair and lack of teeth. I kept waiting for him to start up a rousing game of Bridge - but no luck.
I'm not going to attempt to promise that I'm going to be better at posting or reading blogs. I do make an effort to read and write - when I can. I'm also making an effort to make time for me and us though. I might read a book in the evenings, we attempted going out to dinner this week and we are having friends over for a cook out on Sunday. Slowly but surely we are learning how to have a life as parents. Bear with me and I may even find time for blogging again too.
(If my laptop doesn't end up buried under the mountain of laundry, dishes and neglected chores that pile up all week that is!)
