It has been brought to my attention that there are many people out there who have no clue what WAHM stands for. Since this is part of the title for my blog I figured I better let it be known that WAHM is an accronym for work at home mom. I am a married work at home mom of three wonderfully crazy, but well behaved children.
My husband has officially decided that we are “building our family together” so “our” time can come back later. I wonder does he not know the less we take care of each other the further apart we may grow? I know the answer is no, he is still head over heels in love with me, and I guess I am in love with him too. All he has to do is give me this look while sitting across the room from me, and my heart MELTS, even after almost three years together.
My 6 year old seems to think she is queen bee, always putting a “but” before her response to anything I ask her to do. I must admit she is a great negotiator and leader. Wonderful skills that I love to see her excelling at, but wish they did not work so well against my requests for her to help around house. Many say, “because I said so” but I say, “because I am mom”. Great idea for a book title!
My 2 year old has now decided to be the run of the house, he is so full of energy! It’s wonderful to see him to so happy and running all around, but at the same time it makes my day a bit longer! He fights for nap time, fights for bed time, and not to have them, but to NOT have them. It’s difficult and I am not sure how to redirect some of his energy into positive ideas. I used to be able to sit with him in the morning and play but now forget it he just wants to RUN.
My baby is so sweet, but very, very spoiled, or rather what I call LOVED. He is nursing and wants Mommy very often, he will not fall asleep unless beside me; the one big downfall of co-sleeping habits! He no longer is content playing on the floor with his toys or jumping in his jumperoo for more than a couple minutes. He has learned to say DaDa and it’s so cute. He had his first tooth last week pop through too, how exciting!
Me, well I am feeling lonely lately. I have a few local girl friends none of which I do more than talk on phone with. May be more my fault because it is Winter time and I hibernate during Winter months. My husband works 6 days a week, which is great money wise, however, it leaves little time for family. We have one full day a week together, and that is hard on family time and ‘us time’.
So that is all for my ramblings of today…I also am on YouTube you can find me under username brandyellen1981, more videos going to be uploaded later today!! I won a FLIP from Newbaby.com which means I will be sharing more of my crazy days with you all!
