So tired

I am beat. I have just about finished picking up the house and them I am going to make myself an over-the-top sundae (Moose Tracks ice cream, bananas, hot fudge, whipped cream, and a cherry — or three — on top). Do I need the extra calories? I most certainly do not, and I know I shouldn’t be pulling the “well I deserve it” card, but you know what? I want it, and I deserve it. Noah decided that 4:15 was an acceptable time to rise this morning, so both Drew and I have been up since. Because I had no choice, I went to the grocery store to get fresh produce and dairy for the week. We are currently in the “can’t take Noah anywhere” phase; five minutes in any store and he goes nuts — crying, screaming, wanting to walk, nay, RUN everywhere. It just doesn’t work anymore. Jake went through it and I know it will pass, but for now we’ll have to figure out a new shopping routine.

And it was basically just one of those days. I was trying to get a good bit of writing done today and all Hell was breaking loose: strawberries smooshed into the carpet (thank goodness for Resolve carpet cleaner — I should own stock it in), jumping on the bed, crayons everywhere. Of course I tried to stop each and every incident, but my two adoring sons now know how to gang up on their mother. I am in serious, serious trouble.

Anyway. It was one of those days. And sometimes those days require ice cream. And then promptly falling asleep. Zzzz.

  1. As far as I’m concerned, working mothers deserve a medal. You really did deserve that ice cream! Besides, you work it all off chasing after your boys.

  2. I *soooooo* know what you mean about that “not being able to go anywhere” phase. Lucas went through that ~ the grocery store, specifically. One day, when I was about 37 weeks pregnant with Meredith, Lucas tested my patience *so* much that I literally started bawling in the middle of Super Wal-Mart. 🙁 I wasn’t even half done with my shopping and just walked out. It was insane. He was throwing everything out of the cart. Thank goodness he’s not much like that anymore … but there are other challenges now that he’s two! hehe 🙂
