Annabelle missed school.

I knew today was going to be a rough day from the moment Dennis woke me this morning. I had NO energy. The will to get out of bed was just not there. I slept for over 8 hours last night, but I was still exhausted when it came time to get up this morning. I never remember being this tired with any of my other pregnancies. I just find myself so sleepy with this one. Yes I could chalk it up to having to chase 3 kids all day while entering my third trimester of pregnancy. But that just doesn't make sense. I am 23, I should have no problem keeping up with my kids.

After Dennis got me up this morning I had every intention of taking Annabelle to school. Even if Dennis would have you believe differently. I thought maybe I will get 30 more minutes of rest and then rush through my housework and get out of the house just in the nic of time. But when the phone rang at 8:30 I had a rude awakening. I thought I was walking out the door. I thought I had the house cleaned, lunch packed, and kids dressed. So when the phone rang it took me a few minutes to realize why I was in my bed and not running to the car. I hadn't even gotten out of the bed. I was dreaming! I dreamed that I got up and did all my chores. So when Dennis asked me if I was leaving to take Anna to school I could not lie. I told him to leave me alone and that I was going back to bed.

It doesn't make sense I get plenty of sleep and whether I get up at 7 or 2 i am still exhausted. Dennis keeps telling me that if I get up everyday at the same time I will not be tired. Yeah Right! That is a load of poop. If I am tired when I have slept for over 12 hours then I am going to be tired when I get 8 hours. Next time he tries to tell me "It doesn't matter what time you go to bed. It matters what time you get up!" His face may have a meeting with whatever is in my reach. I think next time he comes at me with his theories I am going to use Judge's method of explaining things. ex. I am sleepy because I am sleepy!

So needless to say I didn't do that much today. Annabelle missed school and Dennis didn't get dinner.

6 months and some really big news!

I can't believe I have neglected my writing for 6 months. I have missed writing so much! It is that one time of day when I can lay down, relax, and relive the joys and heartaches of motherhood. As busy as I am all day it feels so good to be able to relax and revisit the smiles and laughs that may have otherwise been over looked that day. It gives me a few minutes to laugh at how crazy my life has turned out. But I have to say my favorite thing about writing is that it reminds me every day just how lucky I am to have my kids and husband. Even if they drive me crazy sometimes!

WOW a lot has changed in 6 months.

John Paul is 1 now, and boy is he turning out to be a feisty one. He is also the comedian of the family. He is always finding new ways to crack me up. He is walking now and trying to keep up with him has proven to be a bit of a challenge lately. He is in to everything from the dishwasher to pantry. I think I am going to have to invest in some new child proofing equipment if he keeps this up! I can just see him flushing Roxie down the toilet one day.

As for Judge, he is now 3 and no he is not potty trained. I am going to start trying soon, but right now he is not interested and I have enough to handle! He is now into books. He loves to take them to bed with him at night. Sometimes we hear him reading them to his stuffed animals through the monitor. He is also the sweetest, kindest, most loving little man you will ever meet. He loves everyone and is growing up to me such a gentleman, just like his daddy!

And Annabelle, well I could spend hours writing about her. She is doing wonderful in school. Dennis and I are so proud of her. She is so smart and seems to really like school. She is really a sweet little girl. And my God is she ever so helpful with her brothers. She is turning out to be such a cute "little momma"! She has grown so much and I can't beleive she is already 5.

I am still in total shock that they are growing up so fast! I sometimes tear up when I think about how big they are all getting. I NEVER thought they would grow up this fast! It really isn't fair, but with each passing day I get to watch them explore and learn new life lessons. They truly are amazing kids. We do have our bad days around here, and yes I get so frustrated sometimes. But I hope that they can still see how much I really do love them.

We also have another big change happening in the Comeaux house. Baby number 4 is on his way! William Augustine Comeaux will be gracing us with his presence in June. I honestly can't wait to meet him, but this time I have to say that it has been a little scarier then the last few. I am so busy with the 3 I have, sometimes I wonder how I am really going to be able to manage another. Between Annabelle in school, the boys' activities, and not to mention housework, cooking, and making sure I give them all what they need. My days can get a little hectic to say the least. I know I will be able to handle it but I think every mom has those days where she just doesn't know how she is going to make it to bed time! I can't wait to see what kind of person Liam is going to turn out to be. He is already as active as his sister was when I was carrying her. He wakes up every single time I get ready to go to bed. witch has been making for some VERY LONG nights.

Other than that the Comeaux house has been pretty normal. Well as normal as it can get!
