This morning I was standing in front of the mirror drying my hair - and falling asleep standing up, with a loud roar and hot air blowing in my face...and I wondered why I'm so stinkin' tired. Please don't take this as complaining. It's not. I love my life and wouldn't trade it for anything. It's just my reality right now.
Here's a "typical" day.
Up at 5 a.m. shower, dress.
5:45 fix bottles and get lunches together
6:00 get Carlee up and throw her on the couch - feed her breakfast - get her dressed
6:30 get Eli up (well...this changes daily. Sometimes he gets up at 5 too) give him a bottle and feed cereal (this is new!)
7:00 out the door
4:30 pick up the kids
5:00 pick up Chris
Home at 5:45 ish
6:00 start supper while Chris plays with the kids
This is Eli's "fussy" time. So Carlee and I eat while Chris is trying to keep Eli from screaming his head off.
6:30 Give Eli his bath while Chris is eating
7:00 I give Eli a bottle while Chris puts Carlee in the bath (sometimes we switch off)
7:30 Eli to sleep
7:45 Read to Carlee and put her to sleep
9:00 clean up kitchen, wash bottles, pick up the mess in the LR
9:30 IN BED! Watch 30 min. of something I've DVR'd to wind down
10:00 ASLEEP! because I'll be up with Eli a couple of times during the night.
5:00 a.m. Do it all over again!
So...that's why I'm tired! Oh...and my husband helps me A LOT...so I'm not in this rodeo alone!
