Well, that was kinda cool

napper

A reenactment of what happened yesterday.

Ivy leaned against my shoulder and I could tell she was sleepy. I asked if she wanted to take her nap?


Yeah. But I don't want na-nip (to nurse).


Oh, ok.

And she crawled over to her pillow and laid down.





do I then tell you how Gray thinks Christmas is also Santa's birthday?

or how Carter says that Santa only knows everything because God tells him- God created him to give gifts to everyone on Christmas.


or how I spoke too harshly to them the other day, and was judgmental of a friend, thought not-nice things, was selfish, how I haven't showered since...

how I can't remember when?

how I'm nursing Ivy right now, in the morning, when I said I wouldn't.

we can all pretend we have it all figured out, but we really never do.

  1. Our plans are like an outline, tentative at best and subject to change without notice, until "real" life shows up.

  2. Yup. The very moment I think I may have figured it all out -- poof, I'm staring at a plank in my own eye. We're ever-growing.

  3. You're so right. Every time I'm sure I have something figured out is followed by a very humbling moment.

  4. I don't think I'll ever get it figured out. Just when I think I have it figured out, then I forget everything, or someone throws me a curve ball ;)
    Love you friend.

  8. ((hugs))

    I don't think my poor mind could handle it if I figured it all out.

  9. I haven't nursed Tommy in over a day because he keeps biting me, and even though I say that's it... if I get home and he tries to nurse, I will. The only thing I've figured out is that I definitely don't have it figured out.

  10. All figured out?!?! How flippin' boring would that be?!

    :)

    I'll take Adventures in Learning (and Re-Learning) any day.

  11. It's so true! We never have it figured out. Some days are better than others. But I think the fact that you're self aware is the best part. You rock Steph! ;0

  12. In three days, I'll be 56 and I still haven't got it all figured out. The funny thing is, I think if I did, it would be so boring.

  13. Indeed we do NOT. This week I feel like my head is half screwed on! I keep losing stuff, saying the wrong things at the wrong time, and basically feel like a flake. It makes me VERY thankful for those who love me just the way I am!

  14. Man oh man, isn't that the truth.

  15. Oh girl, I don't even pretend to.

    "na-nip" - love it!

  18. I love these little tours through your brain. It's familiar in here.

  19. i love that you are still nursing your daughter. my baby is 2.5 and im so glad our nursing relationship goes on. Mostly at night time and when he's tired, but it's a sweet connection that i cherish and i know will have lasting benefits. well meaning family want to know when he will stop...sigh...i say when he's done.
    it's nice to see your goes on too.

  20. No we don't not at all. Add into this for me a pregnancy, weaning off a medication, and a toddler entering the terrible twos. I need lots of prayers.

  21. I can so relate to this post!

  22. I know nothing...totally flying by the seat of my pants here. So far so good.

  23. Every word, so true. It is so good to be reminded that no one has it figured out. That makes the mass confusion over here seem a bit more normal.

  24. So true.

    You do such a good job of describing the realities of the motherhood, while still showing how wonderful it is.

  25. I meant "motherhood," not "the motherhood." Oops!
