When I decided to start this blog I knew I was picking a difficult season in my life, but the urge to write again was too strong and I decided to go for it. It's been nearly a month since my last post and I haven't written an article for profit since two weeks before my son's birth so I guess I really can't do everything after all. The urge to write is still here, the time...not so much. Here are few updates on our life and why you haven't heard from me lately:
1. Our almost three year old son acquired his nickname of "Bug" for no good reason soon after his birth and it just stuck. Half the time the entire family still refers to him this way, so I wondered what nickname our latest addition would end up with. His daddy has dubbed him "Grumpy" and there is a good reason for it. The baby always looks miserable, even when he's sleeping and he doesn't tolerate it well if you don't solve his problems immediately. Should you dare to kiss or hug him when he's busy eating or pooping he actually makes a growling sound. I am looking forward to the teenage years.
2. Grumpy decided to skip the napping part of his newborn life. He also instituted a strict schedule of screaming non-stop from about 7:00 until 11:00 each night just to keep us on our toes.
3. I cannot get my house under control. My husband always said he wasn't picky about housework being done as long as he didn't have to kick stuff out of his way when he got home from work. Sorry honey.
4. Bug doesn't nap. I don't know what's wrong with my kids. Why can't we just have normal kids?!? (Disclaimer: I love my kids. I really do. They are killing me slowly, but I love them.)
Anyway, Grumpy is actually doing a little better with his sleeping so hopefully I will be able to get at least a part of my normal routine back and be able to carve out a few minutes for things that I enjoy again. In the meantime if you don't hear from me it's just because I'm struggling to care for a house, husband, a Bug and a Grump.
