I don't know how I am going to find the time to blog now that it's summer. Lily's preschool graduation is tomorrow. She still has another year of preschool, maybe two, but all the little preschoolers are involved in graduation in one way or another. I am sad that school is ending for the year. Do all parents feel sad when summer comes, or is it just me? I love my Lily, but boy, she is a handful. And of course, at school she is a little angel (most of the time), but at home it's another story. She is the spirited type- Very independent, very stubborn. When we found out our third was a girl, I thought, " A girl.... but the one we already have is so difficult!" Turns out baby number three could only be a better baby if she slept through the night and didn't need to nurse every 2 hours. But she's a little peanut (11 pounds at 6 months) so I forgive her. Other than that she is our little angel baby.
But anyway, now that Lily is done with school, my days will not be as laid back as they have been. Even though there are still 2 kids at home when my 3 1/2 year old is at school, it makes a big difference having one gone. The peanut naps for a good chunk of the morning giving me some good one on one time with the boy (who turns 2 tomorrow!). Just writing this little bit has taken at least a half an hour, with constant interruptions (escort Lily back into quiet time even though she's throwing a fit because she broke her headband but she still wants to wear it; change Kate's diaper; fix Jonah's truck; read Jonah and Kate 2 books; change Jonah's diaper; put Kate down for third nap of the day and so on.)
I hope I can find time to do this for myself. So often I need to vent, but don't have a ton of people I can unload on. So I guess this blog will have to bear the brunt of it. At least it will help me, if only I can find the time.
