I’m still here. I’m still reading – verrrrrrrryyyyyy slooooooowly…. I’m not really in a slump, I just have a lot of other things on my plate. Planning Katelyn’s first birthday (when did that happen?!), Garrett started tball, I’ve been doing the 21 day fix (I’m down 13lb, with 4 more days left in this round), Nathan’s summer hours are kicking in and I’m responsible for the kids by myself more… And at the end of the day, sheer exhaustion takes hold and I’m lucky to read 10 pages.
I’m really starting to mourn the loss of my “baby”. When Garrett was staring that first birthday in the eyes, I was ecstatic. I didn’t have a very good first year with him. I was inexperienced, unconfident, and he was just a tough baby. The second go around with Katelyn has been a breeze in comparison. She’s a totally different baby and I felt like I had more of a handle on things. So now that we are really facing that one year mark (in 2 weeks…), I’m really struggling with it. But goodness knows I do not have baby fever, I’m pretty sure a third is not in the cards for us, I don’t like pregnancy enough, I would have to give up my office/library for another baby, and honestly the last thing I really want to do is go through another round of newborning. It’s not my favorite stage at all. I like my babies when they sleep and can eat just about anything and potty trained is even better, ha!
May is an insane month for us with both kids’ birthdays and our anniversary so life isn’t likely to slow down anytime soon, ha! But I am still here and I need to be better about updating a little bit. Today we’re off to my parents house to celebrate my aunts birthday. I’d like to say we’ll have a nice relaxing evening at home, but we have two kids – I’ve forgotten what that feels like….
Hopefully soon I’ll get a book finished so I can have a review to post. Until then, happy reading!!
