Well, it's been a few days...and very long days at that! I've discovered that I've switched from thinking in Facebook-status lines to thinking in blog. Translation? It use to be when something would happen I thought, "I need to put that on my status." Now when something is on my mind I start thinking it out in paragraph form so I can blog about it!
Last night I went out for church volleyball. We didn't realize how late of a night it would be, so my husband and kids went with me. Poor babies...we didn't get done until 10pm. And my toddler didn't sleep in this morning. I had a good time--I could live and breathe volleyball. But I struggled with the feeling that I was being a bad mom. I take pride in the fact that I'm a mom first and everything else, including my social life, comes second. And last night I kept my kids up so that I could have a little bit of fun. The baby slept in her Moby, but the toddler just kept running around. She won't sleep if something is going on. In the future we'll know what time I'm playing, and the kids won't go if it's going to be a late night. I know it's suppose to be a church family league, but it doesn't seem to be designed for people with kids in mind. The games run pretty late at night.
Today we took my toddler for a checkup with the allergy specialist. They wanted to draw blood to see if her sensitivities have changed. Poor baby. They took three tubes of blood from her little arm. But she was brave and did very well. (Better than some adults I know.) So she got some dairy-free chocolate chips as a special treat. The doctor is anticipating her sensitivity to milk being lower, so we may be able to try adding some dairy to her diet in the near future! I got SO excited! That would mean being able to cook with sour cream, cream of mushroom soup, cream cheese, cheese, etc! We'll get the results in a few weeks.
Then I got to spend the whole day with my best friend and her two kids (who are the same ages as my kids). She live about eight hours away, but is in town for the week. So nice to be able to visit.
Now to bed. I'm SO tired, but just had to post something!
