Time is precious. Now, more than ever.

How do people with babies get anything done??

Goodness gracious. Maybe some people's babies are better than mine, but at this point in life, if Leeland is awake, he has to be held and fed or burped or something. At first it wasn't so bad but now that there is more and more awake time, my time is rather limited. The second he is asleep and I'm able to put him down, I start running around like crazy trying to do a million things because I know at any minute, he will be awake again and needing me. It makes for some interesting days because usually what I set out to get done that day doesn't get done at all and a million other things get halfway done.

For example:
  • There is a diaper, a wet rag, and a bottle of baby shampoo on the floor in the bathroom.
  • There is half of a pile of clean clothes on the bed (air mattress) in the spare bedroom- and I say only half because they have been there for about a week so we've been grabbing clothes from there as needed.
  • Clothes are in the washer and dryer, waiting for my attention.
  • The kitchen counter is littered with mail that needs to be sorted and bills that need to be paid.
  • My closet floor is covered in clothes as I change several times throughout the day and throw the clothes there in a rush. (Although I have found a way to limit wardrobe changes- when you get spit up on, just rub it with a rag a bit and go on with life. I'm sure I smell great these days.)
  • You could probably find a disgusting burp rag in about every room of the house.

And before I know it, it's 8:54p.m., I'm writing a blog, and realizing that lunch with the ladies at Olive Garden is the only meal I've had today. (Hot Pocket is now in microwave...)

And I wouldn't change a thing about it. I love motherhood!

[Disclaimer: Please take note that this post is meant to be lighthearted and fun. Although it is all truthful, I'm not complaining!]

P.S. Even though most people, including myself, would normally write some post with excuses and lots of updates after being gone for so long, I'm just going to ignore the fact that I haven't blogged in forever and pretend it never happened.


  1. Sorry that you are running around like a chicken with your head cut off, but I guess that's just what happens when you are a Mom. I am glad that you have this time at home with Leeland to enjoy him when he is little!

  2. Awww Meag. If I was closer Leeland and I would have Aunt Lauren dates and give you some time to clean :) .... Maybe I can do that with your 2nd child, or when Leelands like 4 lol...
