If you haven't noticed, I haven't really been around lately. Don't worry, I won't be upset if you haven't noticed. I'm pretty sure only one or two people actually read my blog anyway! There really isn't any reason for not writing, other than I don't have much to say. I realized this week how crazy our lives are until school starts again in August. It's only 4 months, but that's exhausting to even think about!
Part of my lack of energy for writing is my spirited 4 year old. Seriously, I don't remember the Bear being so mean. Maybe I was just lucky with the Bear or maybe Little is just really really mean. Either way, I'm sure we are getting a preview of the teenage years. Little drains us mentally, the Bear drains us physically.
The Bear has decided that she can't give up any activities because she just loves everything so much. I am not the type of mom that just makes her choose one sport, so we now spend all week going from one activity to the next. Monday and Saturday we have soccer, Tuesdays and Thursdays we have softball, Tuesday and Thursday mornings is Spanish (before school), and Wednesday is swimming. I asked her why we have to do everything and not just one or two and she said she wants to be the best she can be at all of the things she loves. I have no clue where she gets her competitive spirit:) I figure she could be doing worse things and staying active is a great way to stay out of trouble in the future, so as long as school is still going well, I'll let her. I'm sure she'll have to make choices at some point.
All of this kid stuff is seriously putting a dent in my friend time. I am like a kid too. I look forward to my time with my friends and "playing" outside. I don't know that I've ever really grown up in that way. I hear of all of these moms that never have time to have an adult conversation or just relax with friends. I do it all the time. Seriously, I am super lucky and have awesome friends.
I'm sure spring will pass quickly and we will be on to summer. We have camps, Little has school, we get to see my brother and nephew 2 times, we get to go to San Diego where we'll see our San Diego friends and our Iowa friends who have moved away. There will also be lots and lots of babies will be born this summer. With this schedule, I don't know how my blogging I'll be doing, but I'll check in here and there!
