Boba-Baby-criBbage date with @gpomrehn. ♠️♥️♣️♦️
This was my second walk to school of the afternoon, as our two oldest kids got out an hour and a half apart from each other. . #momlife is anything but efficient...but I'm embracing this schedule quirk today as two chances for fresh air, two chances for focused time with my big kids, two little bursts of exercise. . What upsides to the inefficiency of motherhood have you noticed lately?? . .
4:17am. I slip out of the baby's room only to hear the big boys' door open. Our 6 year old's been fighting a stomach bug and hasn't kept much down the last day. I'm hungry, he says quietly. I'm cold. . I cover him with my bathrobe and tell him I'll heat up some chicken soup Greg made for dinner. I dish out the tiniest portion for his healing stomach, and toast a quarter slice of bread. When I head upstairs with this midnight snack, he's almost asleep next to our industrial-strength wet vac at the top of the stairs. I feed him bits of toast, tearing them off and putting them in his mouth as he lays on the carpet. The bread is too good, he says. It's the first solid food he's been able to tolerate after getting sick. . I'm sure tomorrow we'll be back to power struggles and lessons on how not to be *quite* so obnoxious a winner of Monopoly Deal. . But for now, I just enjoy babying my big baby, my sweet boy. . .
New year, new look . 🕶️🔪🕶️🔪🕶️🔪🕶️🔪
