Dacky is kind of driving me insane recently. He's 19 months old and all of the sudden it just feels like he's sooooo clingy, whiney, tantrumy, defiant, and a nursing-more-than-a-newborn terror.
Yes, I know it's normal. Yes, I know everyone has their theories and ideas on this stage, but all I really care about is the fact that he's leaving me bone tired. Not sure if it's his unrelenting persistence or the fact that I'm also dealing with a three year old all day too. And don't get me started on three year olds. Probably a mixture of both.
Pray for my weary soul.
I'm originally from North Carolina, and next month my mom and I, along with the boys, are going to go stay in NC for two and half weeks with my grandma. I'm a little scared because the boys have never been on a plane but I'm really happy they're going to get to spend time with my family that they've never met! Only my parents and brother live in Arizona, everyone else is in NC so this will be really nice.

I've been sooooo excited this whole week because a book I've been looking forward to reading came out on Tuesday! If you're into the Law of Attraction, you should check it out. The first one she wrote was on the New York Times Bestseller list for twenty weeks, and I imagine this one will do the same! It's called "E-Cubed: Nine More Energy Experiments That Prove Manifesting Magic and Miracles Is Your Full-Time Gig". Not even kidding, with the first experiment, I thought of my earrings that I lost. Just a few hours later, while I was vacuuming the living room like I do every day, they were laying on the carpet next to each other. They've been missing for weeks and I vacuum every day, and there was nothing they could've fallen off of. And sorry if you officially consider me a freak.

Speaking of being a freak...tell me if this has ever happened to you. I had a best friend, and we were friends through most of junior high, high school, and our twenties. Up until I was about 26 to be exact, and I'm 30 now. Anyway, I often think of her like I would an ex!! We ended on bad terms, but I will still have dreams about her and I always dream that I'm trying to be her friend again and she rejects me. I think the reason I miss her is because despite our huge falling out, she was so awesome to talk to. I felt like she knew me. And I miss that. I miss her.

I know I just stated above that Dacky is driving me insane, but I have to say for the millionth time on my blog that life with two kids seriously gets easier and easier by the month! The first year was kind of crazy. Okay, a lot crazy. I felt overwhelmed much of the time and I rarely got normal things done, like dinner! My house stayed a perpetual mess for the most part. I was breastfeeding a toddler as well as a baby and I felt like that was all I did; I was just sort of run down.
Skip to today, I'm only nursing one, and they play so much more together now that I actually get way more done. Most days, I'm getting a cooked-from-scratch dinner on the table and I have the house picked up. And I can handle bath and bedtime with both boys easily. Well, not easily, I'm tired...but everything is just so much smoother now. So, I'm loving this!
How did your week go? #TGIF
