A tiny glimpse of the last week

November 21, 2009

Uuugh!  Maddox is almost three months old now and seems to be going through a growth spurt, which is my version of hell.  I’ve been waking up every 1.5-2 hrs to nurse him for about three nights now and it is KILLING me.  It’s really tempting to make the switch to formula but part of me knows that he’ d do the same thing on formula that he’s doing on boob milk.  The other kids have been brats the past week or so and a lack of sleep sure doesn’t hep that.  Not much else going on around here.

I did manage to cook a bit this week which is refreshing. It’s hard for me to find a happy medium with keeping the kids happy and myself energetic enough to make a home-cooked meal.  Last night we had steak and poatoes and I made a warm banana rice pudding (yum!) and tonight I made Swedish meatballs in a cream sauce over egg noodles.  Although tonight’s dinner was technically semi-homemade since Schwan’s made the meatballs.  Tummy pleasing all the same : )
