surviving because of the sunshine.

Whoa, I made it to Friday friends. I did it. Hallelujah! It was a hard week from Monday on through to today for me. I can't be the only Mom that wakes up, and just feels like running away!? Maybe I am. I was just so off my game this week.

I think I just hit a wall. My wall consists of wondering when I will ever get a good night of sleep again, will I ever figure out why my kid has so many tantrums, wanting just a tiny bit of silence, and holy cow I can't keep up with the messes.  

So, yeah that was my wall.
I had little glimmers of light through that wall throughout the week. Bina learned how to use a straw and a sippy cup, I won't be nursing her until she is 5 after all. Devin randomly told me he was sorry for being naughty, and he loved me {dude, it was a moment that made my heart swell!}. Paul let me take a nap, and watched the babies while I went on a date with Cathy {which I think deserves a post all of its own}.
No matter how hard the days are, I still find myself thinking of another baby...so I guess it can't be all that bad, right? I mean, they are just so cute, and squishy...why wouldn't I want a million of them!?

Every afternoon and in to the evening we have been making our way outside to soak up the sunshine, and run off the last of our energy. That sunshine has a way of calming me, and makes me re-energized for the bedtime routine. I watch my kids play nicely, dream up new games, and laugh uncontrollably.
and then I wait for the next afternoon to do it all over again...

Funny because I think this sunshine is killing me. You are not alone, my friend. We all feel it. Good thing they are so cute and precious though.

The sunshine saves me as well. So does a friend stopping by Sweet Tooth Fairy to support a cause.
