With two young children, a small house, a full-time job as a SAHM, and my own business, there is no such thing as a lazy or relaxing Saturday morning.

 

Adjusting to new reality October 26, 2011

I am posting from my phone, so please excuse any weird things that may happen as a result.

Mark, who just turned three, seems to have settled into a new pattern where he is unable to fall asleep until 8:30 p.m. The upside is that he often sleeps until 6 a.m. or later, which is so much easier to live with than the 5 a.m. or even earlier wake-ups that dominated our family life for so long.

The downside, of course, Is looking at the clock at 6 p.m. and realizing that I still have 2.5 hours on duty to look forward to.
