I found myself stumbling over the words to the Berenstein Bear books last week and decided I better take a break from blogging. Sleep deprivation hit an all time low. Baby was scoring twos in his little game of Midnight Roulette and for the sake of clarity I’m assuming sleep deprivation and blogging don’t mix. But guess what? I got a 5 hour stretch of sleep last night (hooray, baby!!) and I feel like a new woman. Take that Stan and Jan Berenstein.
My little bean will be 6 weeks on Wednesday and he is starting to wake up to the world…. meaning, he doesn’t sleep 95% of the day anymore, meaning my thoughts that, “hey, handling 3 kids isn’t as bad as I thought” is fading fast, meaning I have like zero time to accomplish anything that doesn’t revolve around my children. For example: thank you notes. I have been trying to write thank you notes for baby gifts for 6 weeks now. The process goes something like this:
Dear Mrs. So and So,
