Bye Bye Daddy

Micah travels, what sometimes feels like a lot. I get that he has to I do, and I don't complain when his check gets deposited in our account.  He was gone last week and he is going to be gone again soon...

When he's traveling I have to admit that somethings fall through the cracks, like Mason eating cheese for dinner while I make his dinner...

and Mason decided that he needed to cover his face with Butt Cream

The boys end up taking more bathes, because of  how filthy they get everytime I turn my back

When Micah is gone it sucks, it seriously sucks!  Somedays I feel overwhelmed, and tired, and then I see Mason do something hilarious like the butt cream, and I remember to just laugh at life and take a moment to breathe.

Sometimes, I am just not quick enough!

Lullaby and sleep tight... hmm hmm hhhmm

Why is it that we always want what we can't have... right now I am obsessed with sleep!  I want SLEEP!  The amazing pre-child sleep of the dead, the kind that you have before you grow up and have adult stresses...  Do you remember that sleep... I do with such fondness *sigh*

Sleep of the innocent...

Sleep of the angels...

I like my babies best like this, I can quietly sneak into their room and scoop them into my arms, and do what all mothers do, listen for the sigh, that perfect beautiful sigh that quiets the fear. I worry, I am a worrier and I need the quiet reassurance of those sighs.  I check on them before I go to bed, I take them both in my arms and whisper things that mother's whisper to their sleeping babies, and re-tuck them into their beds...  I love those peaceful, precious  moments, that give me reassurance.  They remind me how very sweet my babies are when they sleep, and how grateful I am for 8PM bedtimes!!

I'm struggling, but I wouldn't change a moment

In High School I took Chemistry 3 times and finally passed with a C-, I got a B in biology because the kid sitting next to me had a crush on me and did all the lab work (I was that girl who got sick during dissection).  This term I signed up for a Bio bonds the  CO reqs for Anatomy and Physiology.  Bio-bonds is Chem 112 and Bio 112, its a years worth of science smashed into 10 weeks!  Right now I live in the Science Resource Center, science has always been Chinese for me and I am fighting to maintain my A in Biology and B in Chemistry.  As stressed as I feel and as much as I feel like I'm dropping the ball in other areas of my life, I LOVE school!  I love that I can feel myself growing and changing, that I'm finally doing all the hard things that I thought I never could.  I never want to forget how I feel right now!

I live by these quotes, there are a couple posted around campus and when I read them I feel inspired to work harder, to push through the pain!  I hope they inspire you!  I hope that you feel like you're doing the hard things...

Your persistence is your measure of faith in yourself. -Margaret Thatcher.

By persisting in your path, though you forfeit the little, you gain the great. -Ralph Waldo Emerson.
