Let me just say I'm pretty darn ready to go back to work tomorrow. Ry says the roads are terrible, and for once I'm praying we DON'T have a snow day (also I haven't worked a full week since I've started full days- we've had so many snow days/2 hour delays and holidays).
Last night we had a terrible night. Porter was up from 11-12:30am just being... a brat. He came into our room numerous times. I was exhausted. After returnign Porter to bed, I'd get back to bed and Ryan would be snoring. By the time I was JUST about to doze off, I'd hear Porter attempting to crawl back into bed with us. Repeat that cycle ohh... 5 or 6 times in that hour and a half and I was one UNHAPPY lady.
I finally put up a baby gate in his doorway and yelled at him to stay in bed.
He cried and cried. "I want my Daaaaadddyyyyyy."
I left him there. I finally was able to doze off, and then woke around 2am to him screaming in his room. I went to investigate and found both his room light and his lamp on, his fan and humidifier unplugged and a few books from his bookshelf on the floor. I scolded him for unplugging the cords, in which he stuck his bottom lip out and began bawling again. I finally crawled into bed with him and slept there until about 4:30am. At that point I went back into our room, attempted to fall asleep and was able to catch another 3 hours of sleep.
It was not a good night.
Porter was super whiny today. Is that a surprise? Gee... kid... try SLEEPING at night. Anyhow, I was in no mood to put up with whining today so I spent my day snapping at him and being a mean, irritable mommy. I feel really bad but my word... I just couldn't take it!
Ryan brought me home a package of Peeps after class. :) I devoured them. All 10 marshmallowy chicks. YUM. What can I say. I had a bad day!
This weekend I had two sessions... Reyna and Grace. I'm glad I'm getting back into the swing of photography stuff after such a long break (its been about 5 weeks since I've had a session). I was beginning to feel like "Ehh... I'm not so into photography anymore" and I hate that feeling. I hate when I take such long breaks and begin to lose my passion in it. I really enjoyed my sessions this weekend, despite the challenges with my belly LOL! Its a little difficult getting down on the floor and bending over and getting scrunchy angles with a belly! I have a newborn session next weekend and a maternity session scheduled in April (the last session before my "maternity leave"). The maternity session will turn into a session with TWINS in July. I'm excited about that! A little nervous, too. :)
Next weekend is Porter's birthday. Its turned out to be a bit more people than I planned, but ehhh whatever. Ryan invited one of his friends and his family to come, and now I'm feeling bad that I didn't invite a few of my close friends because they (and their kids) aren't close/that involved in Porter's life. Ah, oh well. Hopefully they understand. I was trying to be limiting on what kids were there- just kids that Porter actually knows/plays with.
Anyhow, I still haven't finished all the planning for his party. Need to get on that this week!
OH! I scrapbooked TWO pages this weekend! So excited about that. I'm hoping I can keep up that rate for awhile. I also am needing to schedule our next monthly "scrapbook evening" soon!
