This week we’ve had a slight improvement. No. 2 is playing by herself a little more. She sleeps more, too.
But even with that improvement I want to scream. Just like that:
and here a little song for you all. One of my favorite artists: Bjork.
Instead of screaming, though, I look rather like that.
This Little Creature (No.2) we’ve made teaches me a lot about my limits, and it’s not pleasant.
While doing grocery shopping on Saturday.
On Sunday we went for a hike. Not very long, but long enough for everybody to get tired.
I link-up this picture to Bonnie’s theme this week: “the beauty of aging“.
I my case the beauty of aging is just growing up to a moment when I finally am not fighting with everybody and everything. When I do not go upstream just for the sake of being the one who does it. When I have my own family. My kids. My love. When I finally can talk with my parents like equals while humbly admitting they know more, and they are more experienced than I am. No matter what.
We had a break to eat and drink.
No.2 seemed to enjoy her 1st hike.
When we walked back, the last few hills dad had to carry both our Sweethearts.
The dog had a great time, as well.
Making an apple pie. My husband’s favorite.
It hasn’t been very quiet around. The only time when I can relax a little and hear as little as possible of the baby’s crying and our No. 1 jumping/running/yelling/screaming/being herself is when I am in the bathtub with my ears below the water. I hear only the sound of me breathing and the water running in the walls. It is beautiful.
Ok. I though, and though and though about this picture. I hate it. This is how I look in the morning. These days the first thing in the morning is washing our doggy and her crate. She is always dirty and sticky. Not completely potty trained she has her night accidents.
I did take different pictures that day but I deleted them from the camera by accident. This one is what I ended up with and well… I wish I had something else.
As much as carrying N0. 2 in this carrier hurts my back, it is better than using the stroller. Especially when I have to take the puppy for a walk and I can’t leave No.1 and No.2 by themselves at the house.
Yesterday we had a small tantrum while coming back from one of those walks.
This is how it ended up.
Good, this picture do not have a sound. There was a lot of crying and screaming.
But I kept my poker face. Or maybe I’m just that tired 😉
By the way, if you saw me setting up the camera for this self-portrait and then managing everybody to get to the right spot and staying there you would give me an award. I have no idea how I made it. Those two on the leashes, No.2 in front of me trying to grab the camera and being on my way all the time. Ugh… someday I will laugh out loud looking at those pictures.
I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend.
What are your plans?
I do plan to spend it in front of the TV, watching new episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and Once Upon a Time on Netflix while eating homemade chocolate pudding 🙂 Can’t wait. Now I just need to walk everybody.
