trying to take a picture

I tried today. I did. I took my camera out and about with me, which was only to two grocery stores. I tried to get pictures of wiggly Jonyn, the dog, the baby, me...

It wasn't working. So tonight, I just took a selfie a bit ago. I've been trying for a long time to get the baby to go to sleep. With no luck. *sigh* If it's not one kid awake too late, it's another.

Here I am, in my bed, curled up around my pillow. I love my bed. Even more, I love it when all my spawns are sleeping and I get to go into my room and read uninterrupted. In the quiet. Without whining, crying, "Mom" being yelled, tattling, fit throwing, all that good stuff. Those days are my favorite. Probably because they are so rare.


Also, I did what I don't like doing, I put the baby in his bed a few minutes ago. Awake. And unhappy :( He's crying. As we speak... or I type...or whatever. I will be going back in there in a few to get him. Even though I have a few things to do before I can crash for the night. [I hear the sling calling out to me].

And let me tell you, I'm tired. My eyes feel tired. They burn. Was even told I was looking rather pale tonight. Not a good sign, people. Not.at.all.

But, I am glad to have my body back to itself, instead of belonging to a tiny human growing inside. I have my energy back, and I'm super thankful for that. Even though I don't sleep straight through the night, I still feel good during the day instead of totally exhausted. Bonus!!

But by the end of the night... my pillow is my best friend. Moms have the best, but toughest job ever. Ever.

{by the way, I think the baby just fell asleep. on his own. by himself. without me. in less than five minutes. that's a first for him. *silent celebration!!*}

goodnight my friends.

edit: seriously, I hit publish, and a different boy woke up ONE SECOND LATER.... *sigh* ...and so did the baby five seconds after that.
