SO I promised that I would try and blog more frequently and I think I have settled on a once a week post. So here it is! Yay! I accomplished one goal this week! Well I accomplished a lot more but I cannot seem to remember them right now and I think that falls under the sleep deprived category.
This week’s Momma Moment I am highlighting is brought to you by something that I believe falls under the category of Losing my Sanity.
Last Saturday we had most of our extended family at our house for a get together to meet our new little bundle of joy. (Or as we will refer to her on here, Thing 2. Yes, we are big Dr. Seuss fans and the Thing 1 and Thing 2 titles are lovingly bestowed on our daughters.) We had decided to have everyone come to our house as my husband and I moved into our new home in August of last year and no one has seen it yet.
I had some apprehension over the decision because we live on a main street and I knew that people would be coming and going in and out of our front screen all night. And Thing 1 is a quick little bugger! So every time I did not have Thing 1 in my line of sight, I panicked. And I mean, heart stopping, cold sweat, flashes of worst case scenario type panic. Luckily I have an awesome cousin and sister that kept an eyeball on her and she did not get anywhere close to the road. All in all the get together was a success.
Fast Forward to Sunday evening at church. I was on Nursery duty with my Pastor’s wife and I was sitting and nursing Thing 2. Well Thing 1 decided to take a page out of the Wrestlemania play book and do a flying pile driver right into Thing 2′s car seat. If you can picture it, in slow motion, I dive for the car seat saying “NO THE BABY IS IN THERE!!!!” ……….. while the baby is attached to me. My Pastor’s Wife lovingly said “well this ought to be an interesting night in Nursery” -_-
So, do you think this was attributed to Losing my Sanity or just being Sleep Deprived?
Have you ever been there? I would love to hear some more stories like this to validate the fact that it is just sleep deprivation on my part.
