My stubborn, beautiful baby girl
Wow - I have the best husband! He came home today with purple tulips, my favorite, and had arranged for his parents to watch the girls so we could grab a quick dinner alone. It was just what I needed... this week has been HARD. I'm feeling complete exhaustion. Still not sleeping through the night. A good night is getting up once but there have been many the past few weeks when Eden is up 2-3 times. Now Claire has refused to take a nap this week which makes my down time non-existent. She's in her room making noise and fussing and all because she's wearing panties for nap time now. SO.... she hasn't napped since Sunday. That of course makes for a very whiny afternoon filled with time outs. I find myself getting frustrated and even angry which doesn't help the situation one bit. This is all because I'm simply worn out. I have too much on my plate. I'm too busy and I need to learn how to say no and/or delegate! I'm a mom and wife first and I haven't been a very affective or positive one this week.
Now, I say all of this to be real so my girls know that it's not all roses. I also say it so that if you're feeling the same way you will know, you're not alone! Most of all I say it for your prayers. I know that in our weakness HE is strong so I pray that I can rely on Him even more and seek His guidance even more. I ask you to pray for me and our family as we continue learning. It's a never ending process!
