So, as usual, I thought I was tougher than I really am. About a month before I had Gabriel my old boss from Idaho Falls called and asked if I could cover for him while he was on vacation. He wanted me to cover May 9th-16th. I told him that I could if I could bring my baby. He said that was fine and so I agreed. Going back to work three weeks after having a baby is not a good idea! Today is the last day I am covering for him and we are all still alive, but it has been a long week. I am definitly ready to go back to being on maternity leave and enjoying time with my kids and husband.
As you might be able to tell from my lack of recent posts, life with two kids is busy. Even though Gabriel just sleeps and eats he and Brinley seem to take up every second of the day. We're doing good if we are all bathed and dressed by 11 these days. Don't get me wrong, I love having two kids!! I love newborns, they are just so sweet. And Brinley is still so cute. She likes to rub the baby's head and say "Soft baby" because we are always telling her to be soft. I have a bunch of cute pictures I want to get on here, but it will have to wait for a few days.
Today is Cory's birthday. He is turning 29. Yeah!!! We don't have any big plans, Cory decided he wanted to do something low key, so I am making porcupine meatballs for him and then he and I are going to go out to a movie (if I can find a babysitter for Brinley.) I hope he has a wonderful day!
I have always thought Brinley was pretty smart. I'm probably biased, but I do. Since I have had a baby I have seen how quickly she picks things up. She is already stealing my nursing pads and putting them on and trying to nurse her babies. She also insists on putting diapers on her babies, using wet wipes to "clean up poopies," and putting them in the baby swing to sleep. Unfortunately, her smartness does not always show itself in such cute, funny ways. She has also discovered that I cannot do anything while I'm nursing. She takes full advantage of this to do things that she knows she is not supposed to do because I can't take it away from her or make her stop doing something. Oh well, I guess I should just be glad she's smart.
