Spoiled Rotten

Mother's Day is very quickly becoming my favorite holiday of the year. Because my husband and family spoil me rotten.

I won't go into every detail of the weekend because frankly WHO CARES besides me. But I will say that I have the best husband and extended family on earth and if you think yours is better you are wrong :-) Just kidding, of course. But seriously, I am one blessed mother. I have to pinch myself often. How did I get so lucky to be this kid's mama????

It got me thinking about what I could do for Grant for Father's Day. Hmmmm.....any ideas??

Here is a quick update on the sleeping situation and then I will hopefully be done whining ... I am sick of talking about it and I bet you are all sick of hearing about it!

Putting him down is slowly getting *easier* every night. And I say a cautious *easier* because it's still far from easy. It's nowhere as easy as it used to be. But we are working with what we've got, making some changes and the most important thing is that we are NOT giving up or giving in. If we are consistent and stick to our guns we will get through this bump in the road okay. I hope, I hope, I hope. Thanks, all, for your words of encouragement and wisdom. I needed them more than you know...


  1. that's it. You are buying a camera and I am putting mine down. I now refuse to take pictures of your adorable son. He is just too cute. I will now only take pictures of much uglier children. (oh, shoot, I don't know any of those) crap.

  2. My mother's day was the best ever! Glad you had a good day too and just remember that the sleep issues might be killing you now, but they'll pass.... eventually!

  3. Good luck with the sleep thing! Consistency is key. You are right... and I am glad you had a good Mother's Day - and that you have a great husband and family (and child) to make you feel as special as you are.

  4. I care :-) I am glad you had a happy day.

    At bed, Tyler kissed me, said, "Happy Mother's Day. Could the girls have had ANY more tantrums?"

    Such as life as a mom, I guess.

    Also, glad the sleeping thing is getting a tiny bit better.

  5. Glad you had such a fabulous weekend! And glad you are making progress on the sleep situation. You know I know how hideous life is when the sleep sucks!

  6. Sounds like you had a great mother's day- you deserve it! Happy to hear going to bed is getting a *little* easier. Knock on wood, it's been fairly decent here the last two days.

  7. and that was supposed to say "Happy Belated Mother's Day!"

  8. PSh, I want details homie. Only the PG ones, though.

    With a smile like that to look at daily, I'd feel like the luckiest mama in the world, too!


I ♥ Comments. And I ♥ YOU! Thanks!
