I stayed awake all night last night. The whole night.
The only time I 'went' to bed, was when the baby woke up crying (which was a lot).
Twice he wanted to nurse, and twice he just wanted to know where I was, I think.
Which is kinda cute. I guess. Yes, it is cute, considering that he is my fifth and very likely, perhaps, maybe, my last baby.
'Bed', by the way, is a futon in a room at my mother-in-laws house. 'Bed' for daddy is one of the couches. Ki, Ky and Pa are on the other couches, and Aa is in the bed with the baby.
I was awake the whole night working on my website. I made some aesthetic changes (did you notice?). I like working on my website. Maybe too much sometimes.
Then I'll work on it a lot, and feel bad that I'm neglecting education time with the kids.
But then the opposite will occur. I'll really focus on education for awhile, and think, "Oh gosh, I really need to work on my website."
I like a quote I heard at the Power of Moms Retreat I went to last week -
"Balance is neglecting everything just a little bit."
I guess my balance last night was neglecting my sleep. So my website will get neglected today. That's ok.
That little baby sure does wake up a lot at night though. I'd let him cry, but he'll wake up my mother-in-law. Plus he's really cute and I don't like him to cry.
Oh, Aa said something so cute last night. She took a bath and afterward told me, "Mom, I put that purple stuff in my hair so that it won't get snotty."
Translation - She put conditioner (from a purple bottle) in her hair so it wouldn't get snarly. 🙂
What have you neglected today, in order to accomplish something else?
