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)...so 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.
