I’m in serious need of a nap today. For some reason this week has been really bad for sleeping. If Hubby’s phone isn’t going off in the middle of the night, Zach is waking up, or I just can’t shut my brain off and actually sleep. I don’t think I’ve gotten a solid night of sleep all week.
I’ve finally recovered from the fact that my baby is two and is most definitely not a baby anymore. He has apparently decided that he must prove his two-year-old status by throwing tantrums and being completely disagreeable the last couple of days. He even managed to get put in time out twice within about a 5-minute span last night. The scary part is that I know it is only just beginning. The hardest part for me is making sure that I stay consistent with the discipline when he starts acting up.
On Saturday, we are having Zach’s big birthday party with family and a few friends. My sister is making a Blue’s Clues cake for him (because she’s much better at those things than I am). Now I’m just hoping the weather clears up before then because I was planning on everything being outside and was going to set up a sprinkler for the kids. Plus, we were planning on a little after party barbecue with just family afterwards. If it rains it is really going to ruin the day.
In other news, I have decided that my car hates me. Even after giving it brand new brakes and tires last week, it still was not happy. On the way to work yesterday, the windshield wiper on the driver’s side quit working. As in, it stopped swishing back and forth (and that is kind of necessary for clearing the windshield). Fortunately, it was only sprinkling a bit so it wasn’t a big deal at the time. On the way home, however, it was pouring. It was not such a fun drive home last night. By the time I got home I had a massive headache from trying to focus through the blurry windshield. I’m just thankful that I made it there without having an accident. My awesome Hubby managed to get it all fixed up for me though, which is good since it was pouring again this morning.
