Day or Night?

Matthew is doing better and better each day! He is playing more and sleeping less. In fact, he’s not sleeping through the night anymore! I am hoping it’s only because he’s gotten his days and nights mixed up. I was up until 4:30 this morning with him. He slept some of that time, but I couldn’t! Then, just as I was drifting off, he awoke and we were up until 4:30! I hope tonight goes better.

I’m a nervous wreck now about letting him down to play. I am so worried he will find some piece of something and choke on it. I’m thinking about training him to play in his playpen or maybe gate him into a room that has been baby-proofed. I need to know he’s okay, without holding him. (Not that I mind holding him, but I do have work to do.)

You’ll be happy to know I’m almost caught up on the laundry and we now have a menu and groceries in the house! Terry took care of some bills and errands around town today and the kids started back on school work. They aren’t too unhappy about it since we are indoors here in the afternoons. Yes, the heat is already getting us. It’s been in the 90’s already. We are looking forward to taking some weeks off in the fall.

I still need to do some cleaning to be completely caught up…for a minute anyway! Haha! When I think about cleaning with five young children in the house I think of this little ditty:

Cleaning your house while your children are growing, is like shoveling the sidewalk while it’s still snowing.

How true! That always makes me smile. Of course, I must clean, but I don’t want to stress about it. I want to enjoy these days of having a dirty floors and laughter in the hall. In no time at all I’ll be deafened by the silence.
