I don’t have much time to write this, because Kieran is crawling toward the box of Legos right now.
That’s right – CRAWLING. I regret that I’ve neglected to blog more about this final baby, because he is a complete delight, and like all babies, he doesn’t just grow, he leaps….
Oops! He passed the Legos, now he’s in the dog’s water dish! Hang on!
This crawling thing and this standing thing (oh yes, he can pull to a stand on anything, including but not limited to my leg, the dog, the couch, the fireplace and the kitchen cabinets), it’s incredibly cute, but it’s stolen the precious few remaining moments I had. (And possibly, the precious few remaining bits of sanity.)
How do moms of 4 (or more) blog? It's not a rhetorical question. Give me some ideas. Someone needs me from 6:30 AM, when Kieran wakes up, until 10:30 at night, when I fall into bed. Kieran doesn't nap for more than 25 minutes right now, and Teyla only naps on the afternoon drive to school. I can't seem to find a time to blog when I'm not stealing time from one of these little (or big) people who love me and want my attention.
If I don’t write for the public right now, maybe that’s OK. Maybe it’s good.
But I see other moms doing it, so I can’t help but wonder…
(He even pulls himself up in the bathtub, which means we even have adventure during our nighttime period of calm. But dang it, he's so cute. Who needs to blog, anyway?)
*For the record: I don't have a clue how to blog with four kids. But you knew that by now, right?
