Looking Forward to the Weekend...

Phew has it been a week!  Work is at full tilt, and my boys have not been sleeping well, which of course means I have not been sleeping well.  And my patience dwindles so rapidly when I'm tired.  This morning, my son asked me, very timidly, "Mom, did you get a good night's sleep?"  The sub-text being, of course, "Will you be more patient with me tonight?"  I'm still weary, but I will try my best to start the weekend off on a positive and happy note.

As an aside, the other night at dinner my son got a pensive look on his face.  I asked him what he was thinking about.  His response?  "I don't need to tell you everything, Mom."  That was like a little jolt to my heart.  My baby is growing up.

I am looking forward to a quiet weekend, full of relaxation, peace, and skiing.  Can I just say one more time that I wish it would snow?  All this cold and windy rain is pretty miserable.  Mother Nature usually saves that lovely weather for April.  Are we going to get a foot of snow for Easter this year to make up for it?  Don't answer that.  Back to the weekend...

  1. I wish it would snow here too. It usually does in February, fingers crossed!

    I have had a rough week with E and I can commiserate regarding the sleep thing. I need more patience when I'm tired (and/or hungry) too.

  2. That's the thing isn't it? No sleep = cross mummy! Well done for keeping your patience, I know how hard that is, I have an insomniac daughter so even though she's 10, we still get sleepless nights. Snow? That seems a long way off for us, although we head off skiing in Austria in February. Lou x
