SPENT (rant to follow)

If I scream REALLY loud at Georgia (the lil' dog) I can get her to stop barking. Who knew? Seriously, why do these dogs have to bark at everyone? I don't care if someone is shoveling their driveway across the street. It's going to be a long day, it already is.

O.G. decided not to sleep this weekend. I had my Nyquil Friday night which was glorious but I'm STILL sick. Of course, my occasional yelling doesn't help my raspy voice. And Cam asking me questions every single second or mostly begging to play the Wii or for food. Seriously, this child is going to have a major eating problem when he gets older. He just can't stop eating.

The universe just doesn't want me to sleep. I pray that O.G.'s teeth are FINALLY coming through. His 2 bottom teeth came in just shy of 5 months. Now, he's over 7 months. Why is this such a process? I hate teeth.

He also stands in his crib. He's been doing this since around 6 months. I should be proud that he's developing normally and even slightly advanced. But no, because now he tries to climb the crib. With him being awake so much, we put him in his pack-n-play in our room the past few nights. He couldn't stand in there since it's higher and there's not much to pull up on. But guess who was standing up and yelling at me this morning? Oh yes, Mr. O.G. in his pack-n-play. Oh he's cute but he's a little monster.

Just to add to my exhaustion, Cam was also up in the night. He has an awful cough. O.K. he ALWAYS has an awful cough but usually we can deal with it with his nebulizer. This time, no. So he was coughing so bad, he started crying uncontrollably. I finally managed to get him settled after forcing him to sit up, drink lots of water, and with V.icks vapor rub. I was debating on whether I would send him to school or not today but the snow fall made that decision for me. School is cancelled.

I'm just so tired. And yes, I'm happy to be a stay at home mom and that my wife makes a decent living. But she works ALL the time. At home, at work, she's working, working, working. Her university is closed today but yes, she's there and I'm here with 2 high energy kids sucking the last ounce of energy out of me.

Hey There,

I hope you're feeling better. Being a stay at home mom is one of the most demanding "job" there is because if you aren't on you are still on call. And when you're sick - it seriously sucks.
