Champ Grump

Holy moly, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.

Perhaps it has something to do with Ryder staying up until 1:30am.  Perhaps it has something to do with Ronan waking and crying about leg pains as soon as I got into bed.  Perhaps it has something to do with no coffee.

All I know is, damn.  I’m grumpy.

Today, Ronan and Ruby have “Home school gym class.”  It will be Ruby’s first time participating, if they let her.  She will be very much the youngest, but she follows directions really well and is excited to participate.  I think she’ll really enjoy it, and it would be just awesome if I could kick this shitty mood before then.

I would love to take a nap.  But I am determined to not let Ryder nap – possibly ever again.

Anyhow.  For now.  I’m probably going to watch an episode of Gilmore Girls, feed the kids some food and relax until the last possible second before we have to leave.  Because that’s how I roll.

    I take my hat off to you! I’ve followed your journey for a while and you are so real and straight up, it’s so refreshing, you’ve made me feel so much better about certain parenting skills I have that others disagree with, co sleeping, breastfeeding past a year etc. Looking forward to all your posts :) xx
