it would be fair
to say, that we are in a rough patch.
One of our roughest of rough patches. Andrew is up and about every night and we have our hunches that he is a sleepwalker of the serious sort. Isaac has drawn out a cold/upper respiratory infection/cough for over two weeks now and is also up frequently at night. And, to put it mildly, Andrew has been difficult during the day.
I'm just plain pooped.
Today I was thinking that all of this feels like training. I feel like I am training for some hard core experience that will be demanding both day and night, physically and emotionally. I thought and thought about what kind of thing I might be in training for. And then it came to me. More mothering. I am in training to just keep doing what I'm doing.
And speaking of hard work of the mothering sort, it appears that Loba will have having that baby sooner rather than later. Labor has begun! Congrats little family! Ready yourselves for serious training!
