Friday Night Leftovers (Take Two)

I'm really irritated. I was almost done with my leftovers when Blogger had to refresh, and I lost them. ARGH! I'll probably forget half of what I wrote the first time, but here we go...

•Happy Earth Day, on this Good Friday. Not only did Jesus die for our carbon transgressions, but also for all of our sins.

•As I was playing with HJ and watching him smile at me, I thought how happy I am that I'm not God because if I had to give up my son to save all of mankind, you'd all die and go to hell.

•I am incredibly exhausted. I have gotten three to four hours of sleep each of the past few nights. Consequently, I have been nodding off nursing and anytime I'm sitting.

•Want to know how exhausted I am? I changed HJ's diaper the other day. I then put him down, threw the diaper away, grabbed him and changed his diaper. A little bit later, I was wondering how Alice's diaper could be leaking?! Gee, I wonder!

•Do you know that breast pads don't work when you put the absorbent side away from you? Twice I have done that this week, and woken up soaking wet and in a puddle of breast milk.

•My mom made a comment the other day (in reference to having my hands full) that if I had a third I'd just be depressed. Umm, no. I might go crazy from the chaos, but I wouldn't be depressed. That explains why she was a crappy least until she just quit parenting.

•When I told Sean about what my mom said, he agreed that that explains everything. Then he went on to say that anyone who has more than two kids is selfish. We should just repopulate ourselves. WTH?! I think this comes from his parents (he and his sisters spent the majority of their youth with other relatives and apart from each other) and their lack of involvement, love, etc.

•HJ is now rolling both ways from tummy to back, and can use his forearms to lift himself up. He's grounded! Growing up too fast is now a mandatory grounding!

•We are forecasted for thunderstorms for the next week. Why don't you just pee in my Wheaties too, Mother Nature?

•Thank you for all of your suggestions yesterday! I will be trying them out and seeing what works. I'll update soon :-)

•I realize a lot of you really don't know a lot about me. I know I'm usually talking about the kids (they're mine and I like talking about them), but there is more to me than mom-dom. Is there anything you'd like to know?

For more leftovers, visit Danifred! Wishing everyone a Happy Easter!

I hear you on the no sleep- it SUCKS! Are you a coffee drinker? Sorry your mom isn't being too supportive...that is hard.

I want to know more about you- what is your dream occupation? (including SAHM obviously) Where did you and Sean meet?

I used to fall asleep sitting up while nursing too. If you want to do that on purpose, an airplane neck pillow is good.

What did you do before you had the kids?

How old are you?

April said...

You seriously crack me up. LOL And I would never be able to give up my son either (altough Daryl sometimes threatens to give him to the gypsies!).

I hear ya about the crazy things we do on lack of sleep! Breast pads backwards, yep. Changing wrong baby, yep. I feel ya, girl! LOL

Oh yes, I remember the days of doing the most ridiculous things because of lack of sleep.

I have three kiddos and I don't feel we are selfish at all.

Question: If you go on any vacation with anyone for 5 days - who would you bring and where would you go?

Danifred said...

I used to always screw up with the nursing pads. I put them in backwards all the time. Finally I discovered the adhesive ones which seems to help.

Where would you live if you could go anywhere? What was life like for you growing up?
