All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

First World Problem


Something terrifying happened today – Matthew refused to take his morning nap.  I think he may be trying to get down to one nap a day.  This is not a welcome change in our my routine  😉  Here I was, all ready to get some birthday prep done while he napped, get his lunch ready, then wake him up and get him dressed for the pool, meet our friends for lunch, and then spend the afternoon at the pool.  Instead, I put a hat on (blah), played with him, made his lunch, met our friends for lunch, and then raced home to put him down for a nap that only lasted 1 hour.  ONE HOUR! 

In his defense, the hour long nap is my fault.  I didn’t realize it, but he had a dirty diaper and wanted that changed.  Instead, I put him in my lap and nursed him while he rested – before I finally realized the stench was him and not the diaper pail.  Poor little guy!  He was so, so tired!  By the time I realized what the problem was, he was pretty wide awake and the opportunity for more sleep was gone… oh well!

We did go get some birthday prep stuff done after his nap, but we totally missed out on the pool which makes me sad because he loves it so much.  But, as B would say, this is a “first world problem,” so I’m over it.

Tomorrow calls for rain.  We may be going to the Y then!

“See that hat on Mom’s head? That’s because I refused to nap while she was trying to do her hair. She’s lucky I let her get a shower in today!”

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. You look cute with a hat! 😉

    And, yes, first world problem for sure, but still. I understand the feeling. A friend posted something on facebook yesterday that I really connected with, “Some days you wake up, have a plan, and then the day just goes awry. Not a bad ending to the day – just different.”

  2. All I know is, you two are mighty good looking!
