Well, I got NO break today....but, that's the way it goes sometimes when you have 2 under 2, huh? Judah went down for a nap around 2 and Samuel was already asleep. A few minutes later Samuel woke up, so I tried to nurse him back to sleep, but he decided he wanted to stay up. After playing for awhile I FINALLY got him back to sleep and the phone rang again and woke him up. After talking to that person I got Samuel to sleep, laid him down, and then the phone rang AGAIN, which woke up Judah. So, right when I got Samuel down Judah woke up.
Judah is awake now, but perfectly content playing his guitar on the floor. Even though they're awake, they're both easy happy boys. It would just be nice to get a few things done and have some alone time. You know what I mean?
Today was storytime at Barnes & Noble. We didn't go last week because the boys were sick, so it feels like FOREVER since we've been there. During our moving we were going there 3-4 times a week, so not being there for two weeks is a lot for us. I love all the workers and (thankfully) they all love Judah. Even when he doesn't like to share the trains. For some reason, he also pushed his little friend Elliana, not once, but twice. It really stresses me out because I feel bad for Elliana and Jenna (her mom) and I don't really know how to discipline Judah. Especially in public while trying to hold Samuel. Ugh! It makes me want to go home, but I stick it out anyway. Hopefully he's learning social skills during my hot flashes of embarrassment and stress.
Today there were 4 moms at storytime who were probably in their late 30s to early 40s. It's such a different place to be with little ones. I know that I'm a super young mom, but I actually really enjoy it. I feel incredibly blessed to have met my husband so young (18) and had my first baby at 21. Although, the financial stability (especially owning a home) is something I wish I had, I definitely would not do anything different if I had to do it all over.
Thanks for the encouragement to take the boys to the gym childcare. I guess I'll suck it up and take them. I'll let you know how that goes.
