Eli has two teeth coming in. He’s so miserable, it makes my heart sad but it’s also exhausting for me because he’s so miserable. I’m not trying to say I have it worse than him it’s just that, wow, I am so tired.
Yesterday, Anna lost a tooth, she was so happy. She was eating an apple outside and came running in “my tooth fell out!” She’s seven and has only lost 3 teeth. She is now tied with Noah.
Last week, while school clothes shopping with Noah, he picked things out based on their price. He’d look at the signs above the racks and he’d say “I want the one where you save $2.99.” It’s like I gave birth to my husband.
Brian has two weeks off from graduate school which is nice because during the kids’ school year we’ve decided he should take an additional class which means he’ll be gone from 5am – 10 pm for two days during the week. On those days, when I crawl into bed at ten o’ clock, I lay there replaying all that occurred during the day, Exhausted. Depleted. Sometimes there is just no down time when you’re a Mom.
My down time is now over. I accept it.
