That sucks . . . . sort of

You know what sucks?  Working on a post for several days because you can only steal a handful of minutes at a time to work on it and then have your husband take the laptop with the post on it to a business meeting on the day you’re going to post it.

The bright side: Long nap instead.

You know what sucks?  You’re eldest boys acting out, pushing the boundaries, trying to be the biggest pains in the butt.

The bright side: It’s only a phase.  (It damn well better be only a phase.)

You know what sucks?  Blog and nap time are being taken away so that I can learn to work  my mom’s jewelry site for when she’s out of town.

The bright side: I look like the good daughter.

You know what sucks?  Not being able to comment on your favorite blogs.

The bright side: At least I have my Blackberry Storm to read my favorite blogs.

You know what sucks?  Typing one-handed because your infant son believes if he’s awake he should be held and possibly fed at all times.

The bright side: I have a cute, cuddly infant to hold.

    A brand new baby is the best bright side of all. And an even better bright side? The fact that you can still SEE the bright side!

    That feeling of a newborn breathing against your neck while asleep…that is the brightest, brightest side.

    This is way overdue: Congratulations on your newest little man!

    (Any other guys here? No. Good. Okay. I’ll let you in on a secret.)

    I love babies! They are so friggin’ awesome.

    The happiest moments I’ve had in these past eight or so years are simply those of me cuddling with my baby boys. My youngest is now almost two, and we still get to cuddle (he’s very much a daddy’s boy), but a friend came over the other day with her baby and I just… it was nice to be reminded of cuddling with my guys when they were so small.

    (Shhh. Don’t tell anyone I admitted that out loud.)

    Aw, I’ve been away since you had the babe. You sound great! I remember doing just about everything one-handed, but of course, I wasn’t blogging then. Must be much harder than eating dinner or wiping another kid’s bottom tho…

    You keep cuddling that precious baby! We’ll all still be here when you get your other hand back!
