February has come and gone

And just like the snap of a finger, February has come and gone. I've been back at work for over a month already. Life just seems to be getting crazier.

Let me share my morning routine with you to give you a quick glimpse of my so-called-crazy-life.

Alarm goes off at 5:15 a.m. with the hope that I got a full nights sleep and no kids woke up. I shower. Go make coffee and grab bottles/pump parts. I wake up Heidi and feed her. Then I put her back down and pump. I get myself dressed. Dry hair. Brush teeth. Apply make-up, etc. Get Heidi's milk in a bag. Wash pump parts and pack what I need for pumping. Get Owen's juice and snack ready. Take Heidi's milk, pumping stuff, purse, laptop, Owen's snowsuit, etc out and put in the car. Go wake up Owen. Change his diaper, get him dressed, turn on Thomas the Train and give him his juice and snack. Wake up Heidi again. Change her diaper. Get her dressed. Put her in the carseat. Get Owen's hat, jacket and boots on. Put up the gate, so the dogs can't go upstairs. Get my hat and boots on. Refill Owen's snack and juice. Get all three of us into the car. And take a deep breath and go.

And I'm sure I forgot something in that routine. I'm luck if I get it all done in 2 hours.

But I'm the proud mother of a 4 month old and a 2 year old, and the wife to a wonderful husband. And they make the crazy all worthwhile.

Also, since I last wrote.

The pacifier is gone. I'm at my post-pregnancy weight. And we're in the middle of buying a house.

And that's why I fall asleep at 8:30 p.m. on the couch.

Gotta run!
