Recently my mom introduced me to a new saying..."broke down with the motherhood." She first used it when she was telling me, "You were the only child I made a Christmas stocking for, because once the other two were born I was broke down with the motherhood."
I think she read the saying in a book somewhere.
Last night I received a text message from my dad...
You haven't blogged all week. Are you broke down with the motherhood?
That is precisely the reason for my blogging absence.
I'm simply broke down with the motherhood, a little overloaded and weary of the daily routine. Nothing catastrophic.
To catch you up and fill you in, I'll start with last weekend.
I worked a long and full work weekend on Saturday and Sunday. Like, I maybe sat down three times.
Monday, I stayed in my pajamas until noon. And then I picked up Moe's for dinner. I don't know where the day went.
Tuesday was a day of worshin', swifferin,' and I cooked a meal for friends with a new baby.
Wednesday, a book I ordered came in the mail. It totally sucked me in and I had no time for the computer.
Thursday morning we made a visit to Auburn to see Stephen Grande's mom and play with cousins. The afternoon we spent by the pool with Aunt Lu.
Everyone of these nights Stephen Grande worked until at least 8pm.
And for some reason Stephen Small decided he would like to wake up at 4:30 for three of these mornings. He did go back to sleep, thankfully.
Friday, here I am. Finally. Still a little broke down, but I'm here.
We are thrilled to have a long weekend ahead to play with friends, cookout, and catch up on our rest.
I leave you with a few pictures I took Monday afternoon while Stephen Grande (or rather Captain Steve) was working on a boat engine at home. We loved having him to ourselves that afternoon, even though he was working. Stephen Small loves every chance we have to play outside.
Have a great Memorial Day! Hope to be back soon.
