A Mom Reflection

What would you do for just one day if you decided to not have any negative thoughts or feelings for the entire day? No sarcastic comments to your significant other when the toilet seat gets left up, or dishes get found in the living room. Or, you asked your SO to start the load of laundry that is already in the washer and he or she forgot? What about that toy you have tripped over 3 times already this morning though you asked your child to pick it up last night.

What would you do with that extra time? Go for a walk with your SO? Take your children to the park or for ice-cream? Hug them tightly? Call up a friend that you haven't talked to in "ages" to just say hi?

What would you do?

Sleep deprived . . .

If you are somewhat like me, you probably are aware of this sleep "weirdness" as well. You are sleeping, but yet, you seem to know what is happening in the room you are sleeping in. I had noticed it long before I had my little girl, but with her it is more prominent then it was before. Let me give you an example: she snores (not like her father, but she does snore), and all of a sudden tonight, she stopped and I woke right up. I had to get up and check on her. So, while I'm feeling her belly, and slightly "bothering" her to get her to move, i'm freaking myself out when she isn't moving quick enough. Then what happens?? You just about wake them up out of a deep sleep. Nothing better then waking up your little one at 2:30 a.m.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh, the joys of motherhood, lack of sleep and all.

Sadly ~

I let my blog go because of some medical issues, and I'm sad to report that the pregnancy didn't work out and our baby died in womb. We are heartbroken and not sure if we will try again, or just be happy being a family of 3 with animals.
