Mommy and Baby

I wish we got to walk this calmly all the time. But unfortunately it usually looks more like this…

Here I am stopping Princess A from running down the stairs.

Here we are taking a break and getting kisses from Freckles and then…

And we're off

We are off to the races again.

No means No

Saved! I don’t care how cute you are Princess A… No Stairs for you!

Seriously Freckles!?!?!?!?!?!

Here’s Freckles doing what he does best… making a difficult situation harder. The Husband used to play tug of war with Freckles and his leash when he was a puppy. That’s when he was only 3 pounds and we thought he would grow to be only 12 pounds. We were afraid he would be a shy dog so we stupidly encouraged his wild side. Now he is 35 pounds and not shy at all and a cute handful.

Here we are calm and safe again. I wish it was always like this but for me motherhood is more like an obstacle course marathon. When Princess A is well, I am sick. When Freckles is behaving, Princess A is playing with the electrical cords. When I am exhausted and want to nap Princess A refuses to nap and Freckles wants to play fetch. It is really hard to keep up. The only thing I can say is at least it’s never boring.

Any tips for getting through the marathon obstacle course that is motherhood?

    Lol all fun and games. I find it really hard toch james who is 3 soon. The new bank is the hardest place cos they have a kids ipad table there and when its time to leave he runs around the table so i cant catch him. The bank staff thinks it funny and it kind of is. especially when they offer me a complimentary bottle of water ao i can have a break lol. I do enjoy ur blogs shannon, they make me giggle. Claire

    Are you aware that you wear a shirt with a sketch of Croatia? Perhaps this is a sign of where to go on vacation? Have you decided where to go this year for summer holidays?

    • Shannon May 5, 2012 at 7:21 AM #

      I did not know that and I love Croatia!!!!!!! Yes we have decided where we are going but it’s a surprise.

    Don’t see this as an obstacle… it is merely a mommy work-out.

    LOL run like you are in a marathon. Man, you look exhausted.

    Still trying to figure it out myself. Definitely a workout and practicing patience!
