Coming up for air

Whew, this month has been brutal, but it’s finally starting to feel normal again. Harper slept through the night the last two nights. THE WHOLE NIGHT. Without any sleep training. I think I had gotten so adjusted to living on less sleep I didn’t know what to do with myself the last two mornings. Parenting is not getting any easier, we’re just getting better at it. That must be how you manage more kids, because otherwise the thought is overwhelming. 

We had a tiny bit of rain last night. Not enough to make a dent in our rain deficit, but it was nice. This tree in our back yard thinks it’s spring. I love those blossoms. 

My mom was here for 10 days. It felt like 5 minutes. I had this super long project list for while she was here, but I only crossed off one item. I had time to make orders and hold a baby. That’s it. I finally cleaned the house on day 10. 

I have a zillion ideas for my shop. I wish I could just stop everything and work on them, but such is life. It makes me feel good to know that I still have such excitement for what I do after several years of hard work. It feels like the right thing, so I keep going and keep pushing. Same as with a baby — it’s hard but so, so good.
