Now that Austin is in school it is hitting me just how fast time does go. In no time at all she’s be deciding where she wants to go to college or university, deciding what she wants her field of study to be. I don’t want her to worry about anything other than doing what she wants to. Then two years later it will be Brookland, and then in another two years it will be Gauge.
I am inspired by everything around me. There is so much happening in the world, and in our own daily life that if I could write continuously or just talk and have the posts written, this blog would have a few posts a day. Especially if I didn’t have to stop to check the spelling of words all the time. I had to stop and figure out how to spell “especially” I should really know how to spell that by now.
My children of course are my biggest source of inspiration everyday. The things that they say crack us up.
Better late than never… I completely forgot that I had wanted to take part of Brave Love’s Blog-tember challenge. I have only missed the first day, and who knows, with September already showing to be a busy month it could be the only post I write for it, though I hope not. Today’s post is “What make me happy”.
I think this is fairly easy to figure out. My kids make me happy.
While there sure are days where I want to, and probably should, run screaming from the house and them (with Hubby home with them of course), I still love them and the happy moments are definitely more than the run away screaming moments.
I am happy that my oldest, Austin, is starting school in a few days. Not because I want her out of the house, but because I know it is going to make her so happy to make some friends, learn and have fun.
I am happy that Brookland no longer pees the bed nor needs to be woken up at night to go to the bathroom. Though I would love for her to stop having weekly accidents through the day.
I am happy that we have been getting somewhere with Gauge’s sleep habits. A good night’s sleep would make anyone happy. Though I am not afraid to admit, when I realize I haven’t gotten up with him for more than 4 hours I do run into his room to check on him.
A sleeping child is a very precious thing. They need sleep for to be healthy growing beings. They are, in my experience, so much happier with more sleep. Momma’s and Dadda’s are much happier when babies sleep as well. We haven’t had much sleep since Gauge was born, but in the last couple weeks things have been getting so much better. Our sleep solution turned out to be quite simple in the end.
I admit I didn’t fully read the No-Cry Sleep Solution book. I skimmed it and took some things away. In reality, things I already knew.
We thought about Gauge’s sleep. Where he sleeps and when. The rest was quite simple. Read the rest of this entry →
Summer is coming to an end now We’re in the last week of August and fall is in the air. I writing this post wearing jeans, socks, sweatshirt – things that should not be worn at the end of August. The nights are getting quite cool and the mornings are cold.
Looking back at our summer plans/to do list I’m quite happy say that we did everything that we had hoped, if not more. And we had great Kinder treats by our side as we did them.
We sepnt a full week with Gramma and Grandpa, Aunt Sharon and Uncle Kenny.
We spent time at different playgrounds.
We spent a lot of time at the pool and spray park.
Took lots of walks to the library where we checked out books and enjoyed story time.
We, of course, went shopping.
Everything on our to do list has been checked off. Its a rather nice feeling. I think that Austin’s last summer before she starts school.
