You know you're a mama when....

You know you are a mama when you continually wake up through the night, wondering about your kids, even when 3 of them are GONE!

The wild bunch and their dad went camping this weekend with the ward.  I have not been too upset by this development.  The thought of having time alone, with Noah, sounds pretty great.  But alas, I apparently, am more invested in motherhood than I even knew.  I mean, really, the kids just finished school...why in the world am I waking at 4, 5, and 6 wondering if it is time to get them up and ready for school?  Each time I woke, I had to remind myself that school is indeed OVER, and the kids aren't even HOME!  Heavens!

I have all these wonderful plans to finish a million projects, and work hard while the crazy clan is gone.  It is going well, but truthfully, I am working and then just enjoying the time while Noah is awake.  MAN, that kid is a joy.  Seriously!  All he wants from life is a clean diaper, a full belly, and a nice smile.  I LOVE his guts.

I put him down for a nap this afternoon...thinking maybe it would last an hour.  After three hours, I was dying!  Did he die of SIDS (I know, I am morbid, I know) I went to check on him.  There he was, happily laying in his bed playing with his quilt.  What a cutie pie! 

Now I am off to love my Noah a little more, make him laugh, make him dinner, and enjoy the relative silence.  AHHHHHH.

Sarah, how do you do it all. I am getting tired looking at all of the great things you have been up to. I would love to compare photography notes. I love this one of Noah and BJ

So glad you enjoyed your time with Noah and that he took a 3 hour nap! Sorry you kept waking up. I signed the girls up for swim team...yeah! So I guess summertime sleepin' in won't be happening! (Love the "Sarah Bisel Photography" logo)
