There is a reason . . .

. . . for my blog silence.

I'm dealing with the aftermath of being away from Jack for two nights. Overdramatic? Perhaps.

But it's like we're starting over with all things discipline. Don't get me wrong . . . he did great with my in-laws and they did great with him. He's just in a stage that made it hard on him for us to be away, no matter who he was with. I just ignored my maternal instinct that was telling me to stay . . . I thought it was pregnancy hormones and anxiety. But in retrospect, I'm pretty sure it was instinct. And we're paying for it.

I have lots of stories from the campout with our staff and from our weekend with Jack that like to share (including the fact that he was reading signs to us when we were out on Saturday . . . and I'd be lying if I didn't say it freaked us out a little). I'll tell you about those things later this week.

For now, I'm investing most of my free time (of which there is little) into my cute little monster Jack.

Hopefully, Jack will recover quickly!

My sister always has a few rough days after any of us have been to visit, or if she's been out here to visit with the boys. She says it's ok if we spoil them, as they don't see us all the time. However, she sure has to work on discipline when were gone! The 2 year old tries to get away with everything, and the 5 month old doesn't understand why he's not being held all the time.
Hopefully it gets better quickly for you.
