Well....yesterday was a much better day. My youngest son got his drivers license and I don't have to drive around anymore kids! Yaaaaaaay!!! I let him take my car into town last night and it was the first night that I can remember I got to just take a warm bath, get snuggled in my sweats and plop on the couch and watch an entire movie. lol No phone call saying he's ready, no tramping out in the dark with Ayla to the car and driving into town hoping I don't hit a deer. It was wonderful!!! Of course I still worried that he was alright, he was watching the road, not texting, the music wasn't too loud and he was driving te speed limit.....but he came home safe and sound and on time. :)
And yes, it's 4:30 a.m. and your probably wondering why I'm blogging at this time of the night. The puppies were crying most of the night and Ayla insisted on sleeping in the bed with me instead of taking care of them. I'm not sure what that is all about, but it can't possibly be a good thing. My little sister is coming over today and now I'm going to be looking like a tired old hag with no energy. LOL
If you've left the crayons to melt in the car,
And forgotten just where the car keys are,
There's a perfectly good way to explain:
You see, you've come down with "Mommy Brain."
When you're not sure where the past 8 hours went,
Or whether the phone bill check's been sent,
If you've left the laundry drying in the rain,
It's just---you guessed it---Mommy Brain.
If you find yourself chatting for hours on end
About diaper prices with your cyberfriends,
You've just caught a particularly virulent strain
Of that affliction known as Mommy Brain.
If you left your bags at the grocery store
Or completely forgot what you went there for,
If you called the cat by your baby's name,
You can bet that Mommy Brain's to blame.
And if you know the words to "Goodnight Moon" by heart, Or you study your sleeping babe like a work of art, If you're always surprised by how time is flying,
And the thought of that first birthday starts you crying...
It's unavoidable girls, and I feel your pain
For I, too, suffer from Mommy Brain.
But I'll admit one thing---of this I'm sure
I hope they never find a cure.

I should be catching a few more hours of sleep but I'm caught up in the episode of Nip/Tuck that I missed on Tuesday. LOL
