almost every day looks the same for me.
let me give you a sneak peek.
wake up. nurse. drink 87 cups of coffee.
cammie naps, i do my make-up at the counter while miles plays cars.
cammie wakes up, cammie eats. cammie poops. i get the kids ready for the day.
we hightail it out of the house for an hour until cammie naps.
i mean, cammie is on a 3 hour schedule.
so roughly every three hours she eats, and roughly every 1.5 hours after that, she sleeps.
and then she poops. and right when i'm done changing the diaper, she'll poop again.
so basically, our days revolve around that.
and in between that eating and sleeping and pooping that cammie jane so easily does,
there's a lot of disciplining.
i mean, i feel like i've talked a few times now about
and by the end of the day, i feel like this naggy mom who continually says,
"miles, listen and obey. if you disobey again, you will go in time out. no more chances."
i'm sure every mom can understand. yes? please say yes.
but there are these moments every day.
like today, miles came over while i was putting on my mascara.
and he wanted me to watch Curious George with him.
he tugged on my pants and pointed saying, "mommy! george!"
so i sat on the ground and he sat on my lap.
and for 5 minutes of stillness, i got to smell him. and hold him. and love on my sweet boy.
and when i was bathing cammie jane tonight, she was little miss happy.
just cooing and laughing and smiling.
and her eyes were so big and shiny.
i realize that this exactly where i'm supposed to be in life.
and despite the hardships every day, i cling to those sweet moments.
the way cammie jane loves to stand on me and squeal.
and the way miles just learned how to say "love you" before bed.
those stolen moments every day - they make my heart ache with love.
