So every once in awhile I am going to just blog about being a mom. I know it doesn’t really fit into the subject area, but it is helpful for me to write about it so I am going to do it. 🙂
Today I realized just how exhausted I am. I came home from my first foray into mommies groups. I had a good time, but I was unusually tired. I thought, I will just lay down for a minute and bribe Walter to lay down too by nursing him. I lay down and got Walter situated and the next thing I know I am waking up and Walter has long since finished nursing and is passed out at my side. It is two hours later. I think about getting up, but this wave of tiredness just rolls over me and I almost can’t move. Walter woke up and started to get fussy so I popped him back on the boob again to buy me some more time.
In times past, it takes me awhile to fall asleep. Lately, I just pass out as soon as my head hits the pillow and I just feel weary and bone tired when I wake up. I know this shouldn’t be a surprise to me. Moms seem to mostly always be tired, but lately I thought I wasn’t tired. Lately I thought that I had things under control. Life has seemed doable so it is surprising that I am so tired.
Back to my yummy iced coffee. Actually, here is my tie in for this blog post. My friend Donna, who is also a mom of two adorable little boys who are 2 and 1, had this fantastic idea. She makes a pot of coffee in the morning, drinks her cup and then sticks the pot in the fridge. Then you have iced coffee in the afternoon. It is simple, but just brilliant! The added bonus is that I have good iced coffee as opposed to the crap that you generally buy that has lots of sugar in it.
