Mama is Tired

We had one of those nights last night.  You know the sort, little dude woke up at 4am for no apparent reason.  Gave him food, cough medicine (he had been coughing all night on and off), cuddled, watched cartoons and yet, no sleep.  Finally at almost 6am I managed to get him back into his crib and off to sleep.  Thank goodness, because at that point I think it goes without saying, Mama was TIRED.  But then he was happy and awake again at 8:30 (I could have slept another 4 hours or so, but he didn’t ask me).  So now our schedule for the day is super off.  Jude is just now going down for a nap and because of the giant cup of coffee I drank to keep myself from falling asleep on the couch I am wide awake.

It’s Getting HOT In Here!

So take off all your clothes, I am getting so HOT….Yeah it’s only June 11th and Austin already feels like a Nelly song.  The temperature has been in the upper 90’s and it will probably hit 100 soon.  That’s the thing that sucks about living here, the heat is unbearable and it feels like it goes on forever, which I guess it does because it won’t really cool down here until September/October.  So, the question is, what do you SAHM do all summer long with a very active toddler who pretty much only wants to be outside?

So far we have been spending early mornings at the park when it isn’t too hot.  We have also hit up a few local pools but Jude doesn’t seem to like being in the water much, but I’m really hopping he changes his mind on that one.  We also discovered an inflatable play place that has a toddler section that is free till 2 (well it is supposed to be just free till 1 but they don’t actually charge until 2 years old, which is good because we don’t have extra money to blow on something like that).  What else is everyone doing?  When his Grandma was in town last weekend she bought him this awesome slide thing and having that to crawl around/climb on has helped.  I know it is supposed to be a backyard toy but like I said, it’s HOT, so it is staying in the living room for the time being.

5 Years And Going Strong!

Today is our five year wedding anniversary.  It seems like just yesterday we had our sweet little backyard wedding and now today Jude and spent the afternoon playing in that same backyard.  My my how things change.  I know that being parents isn’t quite as glamorous as we thought, and being a couple certainly has taken a back seat to being mamas, but I’m still just as happy and in love as they day we said I do.  Happy Anniversary baby!
