I'm just wondering when a mother gets some rest? So tired.

Also, realizing that the things I used to do that were relaxing to me are no longer relaxing because I have the "help" of my little buddy.

Today I am thankful for Asa sleeping in until 6:20.

I can't believe how little time there actually is to write on this blog. My life is about to completely change again and get even busier. I will be heading back to teach 2nd grade in September. It is the first year I am not at all excited to be going back. I've really enjoyed the summer and am very used to my new routine. I have to keep reminding myself that I only have to teach for 3 months though b/c I'm due to have baby #2 on Dec. 1st. Here's the other reason my life is going to get completely crazy. Don't get me wrong. I am very excited about having a new addition I just don't know if I'm ready for it. My son is 28 months old now and he poops me out. 3 weeks ago we put him into his big boy bed and this has been a major adjustment. It is rare that he actually sleeps through the night. For example, last night he feel asleep at 8:30. He then was awake from 12:30-1:40 (once I'm awake it takes me sooo long to go back to sleep and the baby also starts kicking and I really can't sleep w/ that going on) and then at 4:14 he decides that he wants to wake up and eat. Oh, boy! We finally managed to let him sleep in our bed for a few extra minutes (I again didn't sleep.) and he was up for good at 5:30. CRAZY! I'm so tired. It's nights like this that don't make me look forward to being up every 1-2 hours to feed a newborn. I wonder when a mother will ever get to sleep again. I do not look forward to starting my MS meds again b/c they were rough to adjust too and sleep is a major benefit.

I'll do my best to write more. My hands are tired.

Today I am thankful for my friend Carrie.
