grateful // from my iphone

grateful for a healthy, growing baby girl…
that we can’t stop dressing up in cute clothes…
grateful for a cute, albeit lashing out 2-year old who still calls for me when he’s hurt,
but rarely lets me hold him like this…
grateful for my mom and mother in law who let me sleep while they entertained the terrorist and kept him happy since i lose patience for it. for cleaning house, doing laundry, making sure we all eat well, and sleep…
 
grateful for the sweetest friends and neighbors still bringing in much-needed meals for another week so that is one less thing to worry about…
 and for this seriously-needed date with my boyfriend who has stepped in to help EVERYTIME i’ve needed him and never once complains… 
{even if he does sleep through screaming baby all night and endures mean jabs in the ribs to get up…}
we talked, flirted, held hands…
it was like dating all over again… the best.
and who puts onesies on backwards through his tiredness at 4am…
 
grateful for a quick visit from these siblings for some much needed laughter and playtime… 
and saving from motherhood moments 
{i.e. emergency disinfecting the toddler’s room from poop this morning and de-pink-ing all the burp cloths i ruined…ugh. they are cleaning my kitchen as i type… oops.}
i’ve been so blessed.
and though things are not perfect yet, 
we are not in a real groove…
things are getting better,
a little easier each day to have two kids and try to keep up a house.
obviously the blogging is taking a bit of a back burner until i get there, and 
 in the meantime, 
i am so grateful to have learned about dirty diet coke
happiness in a cup.
a cocktail for the nursing/should-be-losing-weight mom
who is in daily-need of a break and 3 Advil…
