I’m tired.  Like, feel it in my bones tired.

Judah decided he wasn’t into bottles today which has set off another mini-freak-out between Yogi Dad and I.  What are we supposed to do if he continues to refuse a bottle?  I obviously can’t take him to work with me and he obviously needs to eat.  We’re hoping it’s a little residual thrush irritation that will clear up here, but we’ll see how the weekend goes. 

Tomorrow is our first evaluation for the boys.  It’s in the afternoon, so I have ample time to either A) get the boys down for a morning nap or B) put them down after everyone leaves.  I’m hoping for A, but have a feeling B will probably be more accurate.  I’m trying to get this place looking halfway decent before they show up, I think I have the bathroom left and a quick run through the kitchen and we’ll be all set.  It’s the least I can do.

Tomorrow also kicks off a few days with Yogi Dad’s parents.  They’ll be in town to celebrate Christmas with us- starting with a trip to Macy’s on Saturday morning to see Santa and the 8th Floor Auditorium.  It’s my favorite tradition we have as a young family, We’ve done it every year we’ve lived here.

Over the next few days I am also hoping to get more than 4 hours of sleep a day.  It’s a lot to ask, especially if Judah will only nurse, but I need to recharge.  In a big way.  I’m not sure how to finagle it, maybe going to bed before midnight would be a good place to start.

But, I have presents to wrap and Christmas cards to address and laundry to do and and and…

I suppose we all have these things.  Whether we work at home or out of the home- we still have all this stuff to get done.

For the most part I’m good with just going with the flow.  Letting things either get done or not get done depending on time constraints.  This is a fine plan until we have company and the tasks to be completed are all of a sudden amplified by 100.  Then the shit hits the fan and I feel overwhelmed.

Oh well.  We’ll get through it.  Christmas will all be over soon and we can get back to life as we know it.  You know, shoveling snow, thawing out boots by the radiator and figuring out where to park each day with the new Winter Parking Rules they put into effect. 

Just one more thing.

    There’s always something on the to-do list, especially when company is coming. I hope you’re able to get some extra sleep in this weekend.

    He decided to tow the line last night before bed. Don't stress honey. Everything will work out

    We had troubles with our third taking a bottle so we started using a bottle called "Breast Flow". They did wonders! He took them without problems. Just thought I'd throw it out there for you 🙂

    Thanks for the info! I haven't tried that bottle but I'm not sure the bottle is the issue. He's been very good about taking a bottle up to this point and we have a few different ones that we use- Born Free, Adiri and the plain old Gerber bottles and he switches back and forth like a pro. He has started taking the bottle again, although reluctantly. I think it's the thrush- we're ramping the applications of Nystatin up again, just in case.
