Day Eight: A Year in the Life of a Real Mom

Work has been particularly demanding lately. We are going through a redesign on our website and it feels like I have a second job, aside from my full time job, and being a mom, daughter, wife, friend and fabulous person. Needless to say I’m exhausted, this week particularly.

Why is it when you haven’t had a good night’s sleep in over a week and you are finally soundly sleeping, like REM deep, your child decides to wake you up in the middle of the night? Do they have some sort of radar?

Last night this one yelled out at 1:30am because she was having nightmares. I offered for her to sleep in our bed, something I rarely do, and she actually took me up on the offer AND stayed there all night!

Not this one.

Always this one. I’m telling you she has radar or GPS or something. Even her smile says – yeah, get to sleep Mama and I’ll be waiting for you.

Also I made salmon with broiled parmesan broccoli and baked potato – oh and shrimp cocktail for a snack. We watched Mistress America which my husband agreed he never would have watched if not for me and he really enjoyed it. I’m an Indie Film girl at heart.

Oh and I bought one Christmas Decoration for myself at 75% off. Meet Penelope Penguin she only cost $2.50. She’s gonna live on our bed until spring because why can’t I have one stuffed animal on my bed too?
