This kid…

You’d think he’s attached to me by a cord or something. Oh wait – he was. πŸ˜‰ I’m not complaining. I know how it is and I know how little time I have with him in this stage. I just wish I didn’t have so much work to do.

Getting Gorgeous is right around the corner – so there’s a lot of planning that needs to happen. My daughter’s communion is coming up. Β I have a few trips. Let’s not forget about my actual REGULAR job. And then there’s my other children…

Oh and cooking and cleaning.

I need a live in.

I need to win the lotto.

I need my grandmother to move in with me. Oh how I wish I could have that happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would be SO HAPPY.

I’m in the “good enough” phase of my life. The house is a mess – but it’s good enough. We eat pasta 3 times a week but it’s “good enough”. My kids don’t really have many play dates because I can’t get it together – but it’s “good enough”. As long as they are loved, healthy and happy. Isn’t that the rule?

But this kid… messing up my schedule. Rocking my boat. Pushing me of the track. I’ll Β find my way again. Until then, I’ll be on the couch with my little man because he needs me. πŸ™‚
