How can this be?

For having a little baby who "sleeps so much" I feel like I never have time to get anything done and never get any sleep myself! I know I should nap when she is napping, but if I do that when will I be able to shower, do the dishes, or even eat???

To all the moms I talk to... now I know why you rarely update your blogs LOL


  1. Song for a Fifth Child

    Mother, oh mother, come shake out your cloth!
    Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,
    Hang out the washing and butter the bread,
    Sew on a button and make up a bed.

    Where is the mother whose house is so shocking?
    She’s up in the nursery, blissfully rocking!

    Oh, I’ve grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue
    (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo).
    Dishes are waiting and bills are past due
    (Pat- a- cake, darling and peek, peekaboo).
    The shopping’s not done and there’s nothing for stew
    And out in the yard and there’s a hullabaloo
    But I’m playing Kanga and this is my Roo.
    Look! Aren’t her eyes the most wonderful hue?
    (Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo).

    Oh, cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
    But children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow.
    So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
    I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep.
