The thought of writing down day to day experiences came to me at 4 am March 8, 2011 as I lay in bed after yet another middle of the night feeding of my almost 6 month old baby boy, Brady. I thought originally to "journal" my days as a first time mama, but then it occured to me I should "blog" instead so not only I have an outlet to write (type) my thoughts, but so also my family could keep up with whats going on in the Smith household. So here we go.....
This past week Brady has slept "through the night" twice this week. When I say "through the night" I mean from approx. 9pm-5am. Last night however, the little guy was up at 12 am, 1:30am, and then again at 3:15. Adam was off to work at 6:45 and Brady was up and ready to go at 7:15. SO>>> this meant very little sleep for mama.... The concept of a good nights rest has eluded me now for over 6 months.
At least I am not having to work at the moment. I couldn't imagine having to get Brady to day care and then go in for an 8 hour work day. Yikes. No thank you. There are some days though that the 4 walls of our small, but awesome 1300 square foot house start to close in. During my days, I find myself talking to our fantastic dog, Gus, singing and dancing to Brady (which seems to entertain him more than most of his toys, go figure), I watch my daily television programs and try to keep a healthy diet by cooking balanced meals.
I want this blog to share with readers daily parenting joys and struggles, health issues, vegetarian fare, and everything in between.
