This year is not off to a good start. January was less than stellar and February is not much better. It seems 2017 is going to be the year of sickness for our household. Not much has been going on besides being sick, hence the title of this post.
I started reading a book last month and I haven’t even read a word of it in like two weeks. I’ve been too tired to do too much reading. In fact, just reading this as I type is difficult.
I watched the entire series of Grounded For Life on Netflix. The parents on that show are terrible and make me feel pretty good about how I am doing as a parent and a wife. I have also started watching The Golden Girls. I hate to say it but I really don’t get the appeal.
Being a mom of a 2 year old and an 8 month old is hard. The toddler is just having a really hard time with not being the center of attention. He really wants to be a baby since he thinks his brother gets special attention. I keep having to assure him that he is a big boy and that he gets to do big boy things. The little one is teething and not sleeping very well. We moved him from his basket to the crib and that isn’t helping. He is still in our room though. Littlest is a very light sleeper. If you cough too loud or snore you might wake him up. Oh and if he wakes up and sees you he wont go back to sleep.
My husband has been pretty busy lately so I am not getting to have much time with him. We had a romantic evening planned for the weekend before Valentine’s Day but our babysitter canceled last minute. As in, we were at their house already. It was such a let down. They are supposed to watch the toddler the last weekend of the month so we might get to do something. Of course, we will still have the littlest with us.
Things have been pretty dead around here. We have all been so sick. The flu went around the house last month. This month we all had a stomach bug. The boys were both sick with it for over a week. Needless to say my lack of energy time led to a lack of posting on the blog. I do have a lot of exciting posts that I am working on. While I haven’t been blogging much, I have been regularly posting to Instagram. I love how I can share little snippets with my followers without writing an entire blog post. I also like seeing the snippets of the people I follow. I did delete Snapchat since is was pretty much dead. I miss the filters in Snapchat but I will be using Instagram Stories from now on.
