SO sorry for yesterday. To you, to my kids, to my husband, to God. I was GRUMPY myself! Part of it is that I go into 3am feedings and am grumpy and stay grumpy. This morning, I tried really hard to just go in and feed Squirt and be compassionate that he's sleepy, too, so he may not eat in 2.5 seconds. I think it's helped. I'm in a MUCH better mood today.
There are some things that just overwhelm me, though. I don't think I've fully gotten that Big A isn't with me every minute of every day like he was in Virginia. I don't think I've let myself miss him until recently. And, boy, do I miss him! Anyone know of any way that we can live for free and be together 24/7? haha
And I HATE chores. I feel like my laundry has multiplied (and I hardly wash the kids' clothes because they have so many at this point). It is NEVER DONE and it takes me forever to fold because Squirt wants held all the time. Dishes are worse. We used to have this deal where one of us would unload and the other would load...I wonder what happened to that...I should ask Big A. haha This homemaker stuff is NOT always easy.
I'm also curious. How much tv does your child(ren) watch in a day? Maybe if I had a realistic idea of tv time in other houses, I would stop feeling so guilty about how much Moose watches. Honestly, during the day, he probably watches 2 hours of adult tv (i.e. Good Morning America, Home Improvement, and Jeopardy!) and 2-3 hours of kid shows (i.e. Sid the Science Kid, Sesame Street, Curious George, Clifford, Super Why! - not all on the same days). And then at night....oh....well, the tv doesn't usually get turned off until just before bedtime. :S Is this normal?
It seems to me that I probably watched tv 24/7 growing up in my house. Just from how much I remember the tv on (all the time) and that I potty trained in front of the tv (as did Big A), and my parents' tv is still always on (they seriously leave it on for the dog when they leave).
I'll leave you with a picture of my boys. I think it's hilarious. Squirt is obviously MAD, Moose is saying "off," and Big A is happy as a clam.
