A Heck of a Wonder Week // Happy Friday

I have talked about Wonder Weeks a few times now but in case you don't know I'll explain. During the first couple years of a babies life they hit milestones and learn new things and during that time period they are in what is called a Wonder Week. During those time periods - which always seem to be longer than a week - they are often just not them. They sleep less, eat differently, are needier, and things like that. Which basically makes those Wonder Weeks awful.

I said all that to say that Connor is right in the middle of a Wonder Week. It's always exciting when you come out on the other side and know that you survived for one and that your kid now has new skills. But this Wonder Weeks which is actually about a month-long has been a heck of a Wonder Week.

This kid is definitely needier right now. I have spent the week holding him and any time I put him down he screams. And sometimes I have to put him down and just have to put up with the screaming. He otherwise needs to be in my lap or held. Personal space definitely doesn't exist right now.

So in case you were wondering I am worn out. I mean completely and totally spent. The end of the day can't come quick enough for the hubs to get home and give me a small glimpse of a break or personal space or peeing alone. Because let's be honest here, both kids are on a big mama kick and mama just plain tired.

So this is the best I got today especially in light of what yesterday's blog is about. So to recap - pink eye is better finally but she seems to have a cold (AGAIN!!??!!), Connor is going through a whooper of a Wonder Week and is very needy, I'm fighting my own cold and very tired.

Weekend come!


Have a great weekend!
Happy Friday!
