Life has been so hectic lately. You could say a “good” hectic I suppose, but busy nonetheless. I am still getting acclimated to being a mom of three. There are days when I feel like I do not sit down until about 1:30-2pm when they are all down for a nap. During naptime I am in a mad dash to get things accomplished. Of course a great deal of time is spent cleaning up. My Pampered Chef business is keeping me busy too. I love Pampered Chef and the potential that is there, but I still want to make sure I am prioritizing my children above my work – this is sometimes hard.
Great new is that I am back to running and it has been absolutely wonderful! Normally I run around 5:45-6am with some girlfriends. It has been super cold, 21 during my run on Monday, but I do not mind it all. Saturday we pulled in five miles – my longest since my half marathon last April and I felt exhilarated afterward. My first week out after giving birth was rough, I was so afraid that I would never be the same. Slowly though I am coming back into my own and it is so exciting. My foot has been giving me fits this week – plantar fasciitis is no joke.
These 5:30am wakeup calls caught up with me last night. We were bathing the older two and Beckham was fussing in my bed. I went in to check on him and soothe him back down – he’s sleeping at night in the playroom, but I had not put him in there yet because the other two had been playing in there. Anyway, the next thing I remember is Chris saying that Claire was asleep and that Colton wanted me. Apparently I fell asleep with Beckham in my bed. Everything else is pretty hazy – needless to say I feel rested this morning. Sometimes we all need a 7:30pm bedtime :). The big downfall though is that I did not get to spend anytime with Chris. There’s always tomorrow, right!? I need to start getting up that early every morning though – just to get stuff done.
Beckham is growing like crazy. He is so long and looks more and more like his Daddy everyday. Colton and Claire are just wild over him. Colton loves school now more than ever. He is learning to read and he loves it. When I read to him at home he points at words and sounds them out and tries to read to me – it thrills me heart! Claire wants to go to school so bad. When August gets here I do not foresee any problems with her starting K3. She tells me at least once a week, “I want to go to Mrs. Shannon’s class and see my friends”. Its so cute. She has actually been calling us (her family) – her friends. Chris and Colton ran an errand the other day and when she heard them coming back into the house she said, “oh my friends are home” … it was so funny. She is a moody little 2 1/2 year old, but loving too. Right now she is camped out with me in my bed watching morning cartoons. I love these moments.
