by a one-year-old.
Seven days, one awful 24-hour illness, and one pint-sized little girl, and I am beat. It’s amazing how 20-something pounds of chubby, blond haired, blue eyed cuteness can take a full grown 30-year-old out. Seriously. Okay, so part of it was the flu, but the rest, all her. So, forgive my lack of blogging, but I really and truly have not had time…or energy.
The good news is that she is totally worth it…speaking only as an auntie can.
It is amazing how much they can take out of you, isn’t it? It’s my excuse for my tendency to fall asleep whenever I sit down to watch tv…
Hey…I didn’t know you left the Y already. When you get a chance email me your personal email address so I can keep in touch.Dawn
Hope you are feeling better soon!
I know exactly what you’re saying because I have a 5 year old son and a 3 year old daughter. They kick my trash everyday!!!LOL You’re a great auntie!!!
I hear you! It’s amazing how much energy they have. You’re such a great aunt!
Oh, this is so true. Just yesterday, I asked my three-year old, “Don’t you ever get tired?”
you are a good aunt!! It is rare to find people that truly love your kids as much as I feel I do as a mom–they are lucky!
LOL. I remember The Boy at that age… and I remember being tired all the time! Hang in there. We’ll get you a super aunt cape!
i love being an auntie – though i can totally understand why you are so exhausted! stay SANE!! 🙂
I am always amazed at how much energy they have and how their will can be so much stronger than mine. Glad it is worth it though! Hope you are over your sickness too.
Welcome to motherhood! That’s why I’m always so tired. I’m sure you’ll make a great mom one day…or maybe you’ll decide being an auntie is good enough 🙂
I was a nanny when we first moved to Texas and watching two little boys was for sure the most exhausting job I’ve had so far. Good luck!
