Or maybe complete mayhem...I'm not sure. OH wait...I will have to come back & finish this later...Shayden is crying:)!!
Okay...Shayden has been fed but now Bishop wants to play on the computer...
Okay...maybe I can get a minute in between dishes, laundry, & the ABC game:)! Things are chaotic but wonderful. Shayden is doing MUCH better. I say that as she just woke up crying but the medicine is finally helping & she is crying less. I think she is close to laughing out loud which will be music to my ears:)!! Brad & I are trying to let her cry herself to sleep at night...we won't let her cry for too long but they say about now is when they begin to condition themselves to being held & rocked. They learn all too young that if they cry someone will come running. I would rather let her cry 10 minutes now then 2 hours later. And besides...I need some MOMMY time!! She is crying intermittingly right now...she is slowly learning to self sooth. I feel like such a mean mom but it is so much harder with the second...there isn't as much time to just snuggle & coddle her. It doesn't seem fair but that is life, I suppose.
Life is getting better...I must say that this has been the hardest summer I have ever had to deal with. Shayden coming into our lives was the greatest blessing but the non stop crying for two months was HARD to endure. That on top of all of the adjusting & huge life changes have made it a summer to remember. I can't believe that it is mid-August!?!?! Kids are back in school (I'm sad that I am not:). The heat down here has been record breaking...I am over it. If we have three more 100 degree days this will be the hottest summer on record. It is MISERABLE!!! I think I got 2nd degree burns on my feet when I walked out on the front porch like an idiot!!
Must go...many things to finish before I can go to bed!!! Happy Tuesday!!
