I'm trying really hard to be positive. Today is hard, though. The baby slept like crap, waking up a few times during the night because his pacifier fell out and then at 4am for a bottle. We slept another hour and then Moose thought it was time to wake up. After a half an hour of trying to get him to sleep more with us, I threw in the towel (or rather kicked off the blankets).
Moose has been in timeout about 4 times this morning and it's only 9am. The tv has been on since we got up (and I don't see it being turned off any time soon....as I just put in Peter Pan for us to watch).
A friend had said she'd come over for a play date with her youngest daughter, but sent me a Facebook message saying they won't be coming. If I'd known sooner, I would have taken the boys to the Childrens' Museum or somewhere to play...I just don't have the energy now.

I think that's the worst part of Big A being gone is that I'm lonelier than normal. No one to talk with during the day and no one at night.

Ok...so on the bright side, I've realized that if I want to see Squirt roll over, I have to leave the room, sneak back, and don't let him see me.
on the bright side...Moose woke up in a good mood.
on the bright side...we survived day one.

PS Where is everyone? I know I don't usually get that many comments but even mine have been down. Are you reading or is everyone busy with Christmas-time stuff?

Wish we could come over to play! :(
I've got my first arranged play date on friday! So excited! I think I'll be rather sad if she has to cancel at all.
Due to my moaning via facebook that I never see any of my old friends, I have a friend coming on Thurs with her newborn - I'm afraid I'm going to get rather broody & want another one sooner rather then later!!

Is time out like where you put then in a corner or a step for some quiet time to reflect how naughty they've been?

Moose looks way to sweet to cause any trouble!Bless him! :)

Happy 1st of Dec / Start of Advent! :D

I? I have been reading. But I haven't been commenting...anywhere. I think it's a combination of the time of year and the last month of pregnancy, but I've just been feeling down lately. So Avoidance of Everything has been my name. Not my family, but anything outside them.

It's hard when your husband is gone. From Sept 20-Oct 20 I probably saw my husband a total of about 8 days. He was traveling for work and I was home with the girls and it was so hard. Granted, I didn't have a newborn, but...I know what you're going thru here. I hope your day looks up :-)

I've been mia lately (both comments and posts) because I'm just working like a mad woman on Christmas and bday party stuff. Lame, I know.

I promise to be a better blogger and bloggy friend...soon.

My 11 month old has been waking up a lot during the night lately, too and then he's ready for the day at 6:30 or 7. It's exhausting when I go to bed so late!

OH!! I feel you! I hated when my kids wouldn't sleep! They are a little older now so it does get BETTER!! This will pass. (a lot easier said than done though!)

I hope your day is better and your week goes by super fast!! My husband is a hunter so I also feel your pain when they are gone!!

p.s.I know tv isn't the best, but if it helps out for a few days, dont let yourself feel bad. There are a lot of other worse things!!

I think from Thanksgiving through January people are just so busy!! I read through a reader and comment when I can. Sometimes I read blogson my phone while waiting in car pool or something, it's too hard to comment through my phone
