We laugh alot in our family. At each other, because of each other, and at ourselves. If you are around kids then you know that they are funny creatures to hang out with as they figure out how life works. I could live without the totally not funny made up jokes that I hear a million times each and every day. But it comes with the territory I guess. Although the other day they did ask us one that was funny...
Why does a man take a ruler to bed with him???
To measure his sleep.
(James couldn't answer this joke cause he was laughing too hard to get any words out. They thought that he knew the answer!) Adults have dirty minds!
They make the hard things in life seem a little more doable. As we have been dealing with 7 months so far of night work I have had alot of time with these babies. I already spend lots of time with them but with daddy sleeping during the day the time that I have with them, running solo, is alot more. Night work usually makes me depressed and lonely. This time around I have felt as if I have been able to hold the depression and loneliness at bay. It is right there trying to get in but it hasn't! I am so very proud of that! I have instead filled up my time, when I am feeling down, with activities that I can do with the babies. We hang out, play games, do homework, work on our communicating skills, watch movies, pick on each other.... lots of time together. But don't get me wrong I can't wait till night work is over. Night work is the worst! I feel for all of you mommas out there that either have to do night work or have a spouse who does. There needs to be a support group for us!
All of this time together makes me want a few nights away..... alone.... in a quiet room..... where I don't have to cook or clean.... haha I love hanging out with them and I really need a vacation! The true needs of every stay at home momma! I love my kids/ I need a vacation ALONE/ I love my kids!
Go enjoy your babies today. Laugh at them, and with them. And dream of that vacation!
