I feel like I don’t know what to write here anymore, so I’m just going to write.
Anna hasn’t been sleeping well. She’s been battling insomnia, it’s taking her over two hours every night to fall asleep. It’s incredibly annoying because I just want a break, to sit on my couch and eat nachos and watch HGTV and window shop on Etsy but also? I feel bad for her because that is the worst, not being able to sleep.
I do not handle the situation well. I get frustrated with her. Mainly because she’s the type of kid to get out of bed 49 times to pee or to tell me her elbow hurts from when she hit it on a pillow last Thursday, you know, that type of thing.
But still. It’s frustrating. Right now, I’m blaming it on Daylight Savings Time.
Last week Noah had a double ear infection with a ruptured ear drum. I swear he’s been deaf ever since. Poor fellow. In all seriousness, I’m becoming concerned but I’ll give it a few more days before calling the doctor.
(two of my kids are on antibiotics right now.)
Eli is finally talking. He’s so cute we can hardly stand it. WE as in Brian, Anna, Noah and I. At dinner tonight, Noah said “sometimes I can hardly not stop looking at him because he’s so cute.” Seriously, he’s stop you in your tracks FREAKING CUTE. He loves owls and kites.
KITES. He loves kites. I love that boy.
Clara is completely adorable and loves to smile at anyone she sees. Today, however, she was very, very fussy so I’m starting to wonder if she’s teething. It’s funny. I want to start her on solids but I’d like to skip over the whole cereal/oatmeal process except I don’t know what to give her. She’s my forth kid and I don’t know how to feed her.
Brian has finals this week. For those that don’t know, he’s working towards his MBA at Northwestern. He’s been working on his MBA for about 398 years now and is scheduled to graduate next December. PRAISE THE LORD. Next week he’s on spring break. I think I’m more excited than he is.
And little old me? Well, last weekend I auditioned for Listen to Your Mother. I wasn’t sure if it was supposed to be or not but I decided to do it because I felt I had something to share and also, I was scared to death.
I recently saw a quote that says “do something everyday that scares you.”
Well, I don’t think I can do this everyday but I’m doing it more often. It’s making me LIVE and do things I’ve never tried before.
So, I auditioned and it was fun and emotional and I have no idea if I’ll be chosen but I already feel victorious because I tried and that makes me happy.
