We’re going on like, week two or three of practically no sleep at night. I can’t even keep count anymore. Dac is either in some type of sleep regression or else he’s teething. And he does have several teeth poking through the gum so I’m sure it’s mostly teething.
He wants to nurse…all.night.long. There are some days that I have to take an Advil to ward off an exhaustion headache.
2 // PARENTING BOYS
It’s probably because I’ve been exhausted, but I’ve just been feeling so crappy about my mothering!
Pig is constantly pushing Dacky down or wrestling on top of him and I always freak out! I don’t mean to but it just scares me! And so many times, Dacky wasn’t even bothered by it. He usually only cries after I yell at Pig to stop.
So I ordered a book today. It’s about raising boys and it’s written by two male therapists who are also fathers.
There are a few more boy books on my wishlist but I wanted to start with something from the male perspective because I seriously need to learn a thing or two about boys and how their creepy little brains work.
Someone to tell me it’s okay that they want to constantly clobber each other…right? Ugh.
I chose this book because I love how they have the chapters broken down by age, their brains, what they need from their moms versus their dads, etc. And they touch on hot topics, such as spanking and screen time, and how those things specifically affect boys. I NEED THAT!!!
3 // TO-DO
I’ve been so productive this week!!! Yay!!! But I still have SO MUCH to do. I need to purge every room in this house, I feel like it’s all caving in around me.
4 // DAILY PLANNER OBSESSION
OMG you guys, I bought the cutest planner off of Etsy from iHeartOrganizing.com! Check it out:
It’s perfect for me! And makes me so happy when I look at it! I just ordered my binder and dividers today; I want to have all of my blogging and cleaning schedules, meal planning and journaling in this thing. I can’t wait to put it together!
5 // SUPER CUTE VIDEO
I saw this video over at My Little Criatura and loved it. Take a moment to watch it, it will brighten your day and make you laugh.
