Epic Fail!

You know when you have one of those days where you just feel like you aren't living up to your responsibilities. That has been how I've been feeling lately.

I set my alarm for 6:30 this morning so I'd have a good start on the day. Well, Kyle woke up at 3:00 this morning, Kyle and then Aiden woke up again at 5:30. Aiden had to be given a bottle (which I think is his right) and didn't go back to sleep until 6:10. So was I up at 6:30, no! I didn't get up until 7:10.

When at the doctors for Aiden's 4 month check-up he gave me a hard time about not continuing with spoon feedings for Aiden, who has dropped from the 75% to the 50% percentile for weight and height. I know that is still good. He weighs 14 lbs 12 oz, but Kyle was consistent in his percentile -2% and I'm a little worried that Aiden has slowed considerable. He also is making notes and is slightly concerned over how floppy Aiden still is.

While we did accomplish some laundry, dinner, huge Walmart shopping trip, and FHE today, it just feels like I've fallen flat. There are a huge amount of projects I have not started on or finished and so many things I want to get done. I also feel like I'm failing with my grocery budget and just not finding enough sales, especially trying to balance Kyle's food allergies with things he'll eat and trying to get the proper nutrition for him.

So today and several weeks---epic fail! Here's to tomorrow, right?

P.S. I know this post is a little whinny---but hopefully you'll all forgive me.

Friend well all have weeks and days like that. Sometimes you just have to be proud that you are up and dressed. I think it is impressive you got to the doctor with both kiddos! And my general rule of thumb is I don't get up until the kids are up so it is okay you didn't get up at 6:30am. And all the unfinished or not started projects don't really matter it just matters that you are enjoying your boys since they grow up so fast!

I think that getting the groceries and dinner and doing FHE are all pretty big accomplishments! I don't do that all in one day usually, and I only have a husband! Oh, and you did the laundry! Good job!

some days (and weeks, and months) are just really hard. you look like you guys are doing awesome, and getting a lot done. I think those growth charts are ridiculous, and doctors put WAY too much emphasis on them. Our first (and only) pediatrician visit had me in hysterics because the Doc said Ruby was FTT. whatever. she is totally thriving she's just kind of on the small side.

keep on keeping on mama!
