Weekending 29

This weekend was hard. I don’t know why it was hard, it just was. I was tired, so very tired, down to my bones tired. And all I kept thinking was: There are not enough hours.

There aren’t. I have a big list of things I want to do and there just isn’t enough time to do it all. So I have to choose and choosing is hard and sometimes, but god so rarely, I choose to rest. But only when the idea of not resting makes me feel like I’m going to collapse on the ground.

Most of this weekend is not pictured, but some of the best parts are.

Oh haircuts. Still so traumatic. We kept telling a sobbing Gabe that he was almost done. There is nothing sadder than a crying, freaked out kid repeating back to you, “Almost done? Almost done? Almost done?” Parenting guiltx1000000.

Gabe got a new book case! And we’ve been making room for Baby #2 by adding hanging shelving in Gabe’s closet and clearing out space in the dresser.

Target! (Of course) And the summer clothes shopping spree in the kid department. It is way more fun to shop for not me.

My grandma’s birthday dinner at my parent’s. Grilled steaks, Gabe being impatient at the table, a baby who decided to sing through his entire naptime and so was a very crabby toddler for the rest of the afternoon, and the most sparkly bright pink birthday card that ever existed.

  1. Oh my goodness, that picture of Gabe kissing Kamel on the cheek is just slaying me this morning. Could they be any cuter?! I think not.
    Also, haircuts. Man, who knew they could be so traumatizing?

    Wishing you more rest this week!!

  2. Ah Kamel with a cape, so much fun. Also, bump, bump, bump, bump. I don’t mean to be all privacy-invading here, but it is so cute and so exciting to see. Getting the rest is difficult but sometimes you just have to collapse on the couch.

  3. How sharp he looks with that haircut though!! Those two with the capes made my whole day better. You of course are rocking the vest, as you do.

    Intrusive question, are you guys going to have baby #2 in the room with you? Or in with Gabe?

    1. Initially in with us, probably for the first 6 months for ease of breastfeeding. We kept Gabe’s minicrib which will go in our room and then by the time we move new baby into Gabe’s room it will be time for Gabe to move to a big kid bed, so we’ll just transition baby #2 into his crib and get gabe a new sleeping situation.

      We don’t do co-sleeping, but having gabe in our room was so great for night time and feeding and changing and all of that. We’re going to use a small dresser we have as our newborn changing station for nights so we don’t disturb Gabe, but keep his whole room set up as it is so it will just stay as the “nursery” as things continue to evolve.
