So Christmas is almost here and let me say there has been LOTS of holiday cheer! Cheesy I know but somehow still true! We went to San Francisco for Thanksgiving as a large group and had a blast, unfortunately my in laws were not able to join us and even though we missed them I think everybody had a rollicking good time. My sister got engaged while we were there, it was a really sweet moment! Now we get to talk about the wedding out loud!
I am struggling with working at home. I want to work or be mommy and take care of the house but as 1 or the other isn’t an option at this point even for a few hours a day I am working to try and figure out a way to really make it work. I have been getting by but it isn’t going smoothly. My work is definitely suffering as is my house but not my sweet boy or my big heathens!
Christmas is right around the corner and we don’t have a tree up yet….I am terrified my green bean will tear it down!! I am curious to know what other people have done or if this is even an issue with them but it seems like a silly thing to ask. Recently we were struggling with nap/bedtime and I asked friends and family and put it out there on Facebook but people either didn’t respond at all or acted like it had never been a problem for them. It wasn’t very helpful to say the least. I am really regretting not becoming involved in some sort of group that people with similar aged kids would be a part of social life or even something online. I am ready to start looking for a class or group to join maybe something like a music class for the greenbean that I can meet some other parents with younger kids. This is the negative to having him so late in life all of my friends have already had their kids.
I have officially given up trying to write a “regular” blog. I think I am going to add it to my goal list for 2014 (not to be confused with my New Years resolution) but for the rest of the month I am going to focus on staying sane and having a good holiday!
Speaking of the greenbean…..what do you get a 16 month old for Christmas? I have no idea…..
