Where oh where has my little nap gone?

Where oh where could it be? I am slowly learning the rules of being a stay-at-home mom. Sleep in… lose the first nap. As Hammy lies in his crib laughing, crying, then laughing again he is no where closer to his nap than I am to my shower.

Let’s rewind… I woke up this morning, looked at the clock, and was shocked that we had slept in so late. “What a treat”… now I am rethinking that statement. “I thought I was finally getting somewhere with this whole schedule thing.” I told my mom on the phone.

My mom’s quote of the day: “There is no such thing as a consistent schedule with a baby. Someone has sold you a phony bill of goods. Motherhood is about being flexible.” (Mom: I hope I quoted you correctly I tried to call you back to double check but no answer.)

So, I have to be flexible, yet rigid. I don’t know if I will ever catch on, and if I do I am sure it will be too late.

Moral of the day: Get up on time or pay the price. Price: Loss of first nap and get ready for the day time also known as the beloved shower.

Now that Hammy is on his way to napping I am posting this and then off to the shower to re-begin my day.

I'm Back...

Well, it has been over a year since stated this blog and yep... I am a liar. Last summer we found out that we were pregnant with our second son and I was working full-time and so on and so forth. Therefore, I was lame and have not posted even one more word after my first post.

So, here I am over a year later and life has taken a 180. I am now a stay-at-home mom of two sons and am busy, busy, busy. As I sat at my desk at work over six months ago I thought this would be like a vacation. Wow, was I wrong.

I have gone through every emotion in the book since I have been home. Joy, confusion, repulsion (poopy diapers are one thing I could do without), happiness, sadness, anger, frustration, more confusion, loneliness, elation, to name a few.

Earlier this week I was frustrated with all of it and was not sure what to do. I Googled "stay at home mom" and started reading. That is when I came across a few blogs of moms that made me feel human and normal (whatever that is) for the first time in months. Now here I am deciding this is what I need and want to do as a stay-at-home mom to keep my sanity. With that being said: keep reading if you want some kind of sanity (or insanity) for yourself.

First blog ever...

I'm new and I don't know what to do... I am not keeping up with the times as far as I can tell. It took me forever to catch on to the craze. Once I did though I have to admit I was mildly addicted. Wow, I am glad I got that off my chest! So, now I am here because two of my co-workers have these blog things and I thought to myself I might want to do this too. It seems like a good way for all of the out-of-state relatives and long lost friends to keep up with how fast Tyler is growing and what we as a family are up to.

I think I should start by explaining the title. The Governor, Mayor, and Congressman - I am called "The Governor", my son is called "The Mayor", and I just put Dave as "The Congressman" because I was not sure what else to call him other than "The Voter".

Dave, Tyler & Me (Linda)

I am excited to get this up before our busy summer hits. We have a few trips planned and lots to do. I will have to pull out the camera a little more and get some good content to post!

Keep your eyes peeled I promise there will be more to come!
