Oh you guys, there is so much I want to blog about, but the tiredness. Oh, the tiredness.

A day spent running after a toddler all day long, is a day well spent, but leaves little room for anything else lately. I'm currently a good for nothing, exhausted heap typing these very words from my bed. My sweet, sweet bed ;)

Although I may be exhausted, can I just say, I am so very, very happy. This tiredness is a worth while tiredness. My body is growing another little person, and all the while taking care of another (not so little anymore) person too. I'm pretty proud of that fact.

For the days when tiredness turns to weariness (you know how those days can be with a toddler ;) and my patience is wearing thin, I remind myself of this quote...

The crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes...the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules...You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things...they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as crazy, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do - Steve Jobs

This quote makes me smile so much, as I have one very headstrong and fiercely independent boy on my hands. I need to remind myself that these qualities should be celebrated and not quashed. I have a natural big brother on my hands, that is for sure.

  1. I know that weariness, that foggy foggy weariness. And he'll yeah, looking after a toddler is waaaaaay more exhausting than a baby. Or at least it has been for me. I think our bubs must be similar little chaps; mine is one seriously high octane, fruit loop but I like Steve Jobs' perspective on the matter - I'll keep it in mind and I think I'm going to start that 5 minutes of nothingness with a brew thing. Right now!
