On Friday night we went to dinner at a friend’s house and stayed way too late. This mamma doesn’t do midnight anymore. My system starts to shut down around 9…..starting with my eyelids. But we lost track of time. I should have realized when Levi got sleepy and laid on the couch. He never goes to sleep before I do.
About an hour before he fell asleep I gave him my phone to play with. I normally don’t do that, but he was really bored since all of the other kids were significantly older than he is. After the evening was over and I looked at my phone I was shocked that he had moved all of my apps around.
If you think sleepy mamma is bad you should see sleepy mamma that can’t find her Instagram. The next morning it took me almost an hour to figure out how to put it all back. When I asked him why he did that he told me I was too unorganized so he made it better. OK, he’s 7. I almost told him he has no business telling me how to organize anything since he hasn’t been able to find his new shoes for 2 weeks. But I refrained, being so mature and all.
On Saturday I was in Austin to visit my parents then teach an essential oils class with a friend of mine. It was fun to meet new people and share my love for the oils. Then I drove home and went almost straight to bed. My eyelids were still suffering from the night before.
On Sunday after church I was really hoping for a long, hard nap. God heard my cry because my son Jacob asked if he could take the other kids to see “God’s Not Dead” that was playing at the local Baptist church in the afternoon. All but 2 of the kids went and those 2 decided to play together and I actually closed my bedroom door and took the best nap ever. It had all the necessary elements….quiet, cool and nothing to do. #perfection
Today I am taking my three little boys to a cavern to explore. I promised them a few weeks ago that we would do it as soon as we could and they have been patiently waiting for Mom to stop her life and go. Honestly, I don’t have time. But then, I didn’t have time to go into labor and breastfeed on demand either. Sometimes you just have to make it happen.
However, they don’t know it yet but we will also be stopping by Costco for a few things. No trip with Mom is complete without a Costco run. It’s a boy’s dream day. But before you feel sorry for them you should know that what I lack in exciting shopping I make up for with frozen yogurt.
Oh….one thing I keep forgetting to tell you about….every Tuesday morning I am a guest on a web show called Mentor Moms with my friend at Hip Homeschool Moms. It’s at 10CST and I’d love for you to join us! Here’s their YouTube channel with past shows.
Have a great week!
