Juggling...

... work, baby, husband, house, life in general these days. It's all basically good but by the end of the evening, I'm toast. I now understand why all of my new mommy friends go to bed early. Too bad I am addicted to reading blogs and tend to be a night owl!

Anyway. We are all transitioning into the new routine well, and Anna Kathryn has pretty much settled into her new routine and going to day care (we call it "school"). She likes her new teachers and seems particularly fond of one of the afternoon teachers. She is super tired most nights -- dinner often ends with howls and spitting out rejected bites-- so bedtime is earlier these days. We try to make the most of the few short hours we have with her before bed. My one big wish these days is that dishes would magically load themselves in the dishwasher and that the sponge would magically wipe the counter. I don't mind cooking dinner at all, but after the bedtime routine I want to plop down on the couch and put my feet up, not do the dishes. I usually can't get it all done before bedtime, because that would cut into playtime with Little Miss Sunshine. Mark lends a hand many nights and I love it (and him, especially) when he does. I know I am blessed to be married to such a great guy.

I don't think it matters who you are or what you are doing, we all want the dishes to "do themselves".
I am lucky to have an older daughter and a husband who will help out!

There has to be some one some where who could invent SOMETHING that would free moms everywhere of the oppression of dishes. And laundry, too if you don't mind :)

With ya on the adjusting - seems that every week brings a new "thing" that we have to flex for around here. This week, it's Mommy trying to Christmas shop. Thank goodness Daddy could work from home at least one of the days!

I do not heart the dishes, either. It is the one task that annoys me.

Good to hear from you!

I love this layout.
