insta friday and slices of life

woke up this morning not wanting to open my eyes. Last night was the first night, well second night Isaiah has acted like well a newborn. He demanded milk and cuddles from me throughout the night. And well I am happy to be his mama and give him what he needs I was exhausted this morning. Will woke me up announcing he was going to work and I could have cried I was so tired. I drug myself out of bed and silently cursed the well rested people of the world. I brushed my teeth while dreaming of that glorious first sip of coffee. I got myself dressed in clothes that may or may not have matched. I didn't care. I took out the Bobby pins and rubber bands still in my hair from the previous days hairstyle out. I ran a comb through my rats nest I call hair these days and proceeded to put the same Bobby pins and rubber bands in my hair that I just took out. I scooped up as still sleeping baby and kissed his ear inhaling the sweet smell that is baby. After a quick diaper change we headed downstairs to find sweet Myka cuddled on the couch watching Dora. How I wanted to snuggle up with her and nurse the baby while Myka and I chatted about team umi zunni and the backyard agains. But today was a preschool day. I heavily considered The idea of playing hooky. Using the fact that I was sleep deprived as a excuse to not get her dressed and groomed and out the door in the next 15 min. But I did it. Because it's the new routine and it's important to keep to it as much as can. With four kids routine and me need to be on the same team. Even If I wake up feeling like a gigantic lug.

In other news we had a birthday party last night !!  Still cant believe she is 11. She sand karaoke for the first time last night at applebees with her best friend . They jammed out to Taylor Swift and rocked it ! I was so proud of her.

Lots of baby lovin going on around here. He  is so lucky to have three big sisters who love him so much .As much as I love my little helpers i am excited for Monday ! Do you remember the Staples commercial where they sing the Christmas song its the most wonderful time of the year and the parents are back to school shopping ? That always how I feel on the first day.
