   Sometimes I just need to complain and vent a little. This morning I hit my limit. I need a break so bad. After two weeks of sick kids I am going crazy. Luckily Jude is finally better, but Emery is another story. She hasn't had a fever, but has a yucky cough, runny nose, and is soo incredibly whiny. I'm thinking she might have an ear infection like Jude did in BOTH ears. Yuck. Thank goodness we are taking her to the pediatrician today. I looove our pediatrician. He is so nice and doesn't make you feel like a dumb parent like others do.  On top of Emery being sick she has started the phase where I can't walk 5 feet away from her or she freaks out! She wants to be held a lot and I always have to be in her sight. 
   I need a date night or a date WEEK. The last time E.B. and I went out for a date was 3 months ago for my birthday. We still haven't celebrated our anniversary that was in December because we took Jude out for his birthday instead. Hopefully I can convince E.B. to take me out and hopefully we can find the time! E.B. started school again this week which is great, but it just means more time that he is away. I am so glad he is sticking with his schooling. He is working so hard to get his classes done so he can finally apply for the nursing program. I really am so proud of him! Tomorrow he is heading up to Flagstaff for a day of snowboarding. I guess it's a nice break for him from work and school, but I wish so badly that I could go too! He isn't the only one who needs some time away. It will be a miracle if I make it through this weekend without losing my mind!
  Despite all the things that are bothering me, I am SO grateful for my two little babies and for E.B. I wouldn't trade this life of a mother and wife for anything!


  1. I have been feeling the same way.. It is really no fun when babies don't stop whining or coughing.

  2. i feel the same way! the flu has hit my family 7 times in the last 2 months! it feels like it just wont go away! I hate this winter- i am so upset with this stupid weather, the nice sweater weather lasted about 2 seconds and now its gone. :( I hope you get a break soon too! Good luck :)
