Time does fly by so fast, doesn’t it?? When a woman has a child, often someone will say “enjoy these moments because they grow up so fast.” How true that is. My daughter just turned 4 – my first born! I cannot believe that last week I sent my BABY to preschool! It felt so confusing; I was happy for her but at the same time a bit sad that the baby years of her life are completely over. She will forever be my baby though.
As for Serenity, she is growing up so fast, too. She is beginning to look so much like a little girl and much less like a baby. That baby face is fading fast and with it her baby-like tendencies, both good and bad. I am somewhat glad she is growing up faster for now. While I enjoy some of the aspects of babyhood, I am eager to get her out of diapers and into panties! Oh how I loathe the changing of the poopy diaper. Unlike many mothers, I do not have the stomach of steal and anything stinky or gross bothers me greatly.
Speaking of which, you may notice this post is somewhat late at night – or early in the morning depending on how you look at it. I feel horrible!! I threw up twice today (yesterday?), as if you wanted to know, and I still feel nauseous. I simply cannot sleep. I don’t know why I feel so horrible. My first thought is when was my last period, but even if I were prego I wouldn’t be feeling this bad this quickly. So that reason is mostly likely out. I think its more what Presten said – emotional tension.
This past weekend I went to a Women’s Retreat that included many woman from the greater NW area – including WA. I had a blast. We laughed, we cried, we shared, hugged, and healed each other. It was awesome!! I feel better than I have in years. But I think it overwhelmed my body. I came home and went to bed before 6 p.m. and have felt sick and tired ever since. I just feel horrible!! What makes it worse is I still have to work! As a stay at home mom, I never get a “sick day”. So the t.v. has been helping me by keeping the kids more pre-occupied. But our DVD player broke so I have been relying on our old, trusty VHS player. Unfortunately, we don’t have a wide of a collection of kids VHS since most of them were purchased before Presten even married me.
UGH! I feel so ill. I think I’ll go make myself some tea.
Thanks for reading.
Good night… hopefully!
