I am...SO tired.
I noticed the other day that the bags under my eyes are more noticeable, and my hours of staying up late are now starting to affect me. I guess I think I'm 19 and in college...
Except in college I slept in, never cleaned, took long showers, and used my brain.
Now, at 25 I don't sleep ever, I clean constantly, shower...HA..., and I just sent my mom a mother's day card and addressed it to MY current address.
The funny thing is, as I lie in bed at night asking my husband if I locked the doors and turned on the alarm for the 56th time, I know that I wouldn't trade any of it.
I wouldn't trade the sleepless nights, rocking my baby till she finally falls asleep. I'm still so grateful even when my girls are fighting over a fork. Although, thank goodness my friends at EllieLyn sent the girls and I matching necklaces...
And I love every moment of changing them in different princess dresses 108 times a day. I wouldn't trade it. Ever.
Thank you Boo and Sweet Pea for making me tired, because I wouldn't have it any other way!
And thank you for giving me a reason to make chocolate chip cookies, and for being there to eat them with me first thing in the morning. THAT I would never change :).
