If you are thinking about having kids 15 1/2 months apart, might I recommend viewing this collage prior to making your final decision? (Click to enlarge. Trust me, you want to do this.)
This is very symbolic of what life is like for me right now. It's WONDERFUL. Full of laughs, matching pj's (the kids, not me - don't worry), and juice cups perched in curious places - can you find it!? But it's also a little crazy.
Today I told my brother in law that I'd put a check in the mail to him... "on Monday, of course, since tomorrow is Sunday". Today is Sunday.
I have burned 5 things in the oven on separate occasions in the last week or so. I NEVER burn things in the oven! And yet somehow I keep forgetting to check if the oven dial is set to "Bake" or "Broil". Curse that Broil notch, and why isn't it twice as big and neon orange?
So now don't you want to forgive me for slacking on the blog? I thought so.
I will say that somehow, I have managed to get the Christmas tree up and decorated (only the top half... this year the bottom is empty for obvious reasons!), make a batch of sugar cookies with my mom's help, nearly completed our Christmas shopping (thanks to the kids napping for 2 hours at the same time today and Rob being willing to stay behind in case they woke up), mailed out our Christmas cards, and remembered to purchase AND wash the kids' Christmas Eve gifts (what else, matching pj's). In my spare time this weekend I also cleaned out the pantry, top of the fridge, and our candy cabinet. That's right, we have a cabinet devoted to candy, popcorn and cookies. I have no idea why, since we rarely open it - I have a hard time throwing this stuff out even if we don't really eat it, it keeps so well (gross). What we DO eat are the fresh baked treats that are usually on the cake stand on the counter. But I digress... my point is that aside from keeping 2 small children alive, clothed, fed and relatively happy every day, I AM managing a small level of productivity on the side.
And since I think that last paragraph was more for me than you, I'm heading to bed. Here's to hoping you have the days of the week straight. And if you don't, that you have as happy a reason as I do for not being right in the head!
