Random Thoughts

It seems that lately I have about a million random thoughts swimming around in my head. I often think of these million things when I trying like hell to get some sleep between paci runs and night feedings. I thought perhaps a bit of rambling might help me work through it. Here goes...

- Why is it that there is this misconception (and believe you me I never really bought into it) that having kids brings a couple closer together. Not that we are in "trouble" by any means but man is it hard. Some days with him working too much (not by choice) and me being totally busy with the babies we are like two ships passing in the night. As a psychologist I realize that relationships of all kinds take work so we are both making sure we put the time into us so we are ok. It just kills me that people are stupid enough to think that having kids will be this blissful thing where you can spend oodles of time together sweetly watching your little one sleep. If only...

- Why does life seem so much more depressing at the holidays. I am more joyful than usual since I got life's most wonderful gift back in June. That being said this time of year just seems somehow lonely.

- How come people feel the need to use different color christmas lights in one display. Either white or colored or blinking... not fourteen different colors throw carelessly up in a tree. Man that one drives me nuts.

- Why do I have to explain to people a million times about everything with Abby. With all the stress of her appointments and her PT why the hell do I have to convince people that all this is necessary. Does the kid need to be dying in order to go to CHOP. And for God's sake if one more person asks me if this means she might be retarded I WILL hit them.

Ok, I am sure I will have more randomness to share in days to come. It seems like the more tired and stressed I get the more random my thought processes become.

I hear ya. I tell my newly married friends to enjoy the time they have before kids because it does change tremendously. Not that having kids is bad, but you're right, it's hard. This time in their lives is so challenging and demanding. As they get older, my hope is that it will get easier.

Try to make time to spend with Bryan. Even if it's just taking 10 minutes on Sunday morning to have coffee together at the kitchen table.

And call me if you're feeling lonely. I've always got something to bitch about that would make you smile! ;)

I have been reading your blog for some time now but have never commented. I enjoy hearing about the progress your babies are making. I have only one baby a couple of months older than yours. Anyway, I cannot believe people have the nerve to ask you if your child is going to be retarded. As if that would change the way you love her or treat her. It sounds like you are doing the best for both your babies and screw what everyone else thinks.
