It’s been four months since I’ve started this blog and I’ve decided that I want this blog to be about Motherhood: the good, and the bad. There are a lot of good blogs about motherhood out there. Here I tell stories. I post pictures. You get a snapshot of life. How it really is- not the unicorn stylized version. The real, low down, ugly, messy, unicorn poop version of life. Life is messy. It just is. And I want to share it with you. All of it. Even the beautiful, messy parts of it. The Unicorn poop.
Last night, like every Monday night, we had family night. Not able to think of anything creative, we turned on one of our favorite tv shows- Random Acts– and had treats.
Now, my three year old Declan does not hold his sugar very well. You give him a scoop of ice cream and he’s up until 9:30 or 10 pm.
Well, last night was a doozy for him! Think a drunk toddler- high on sugar. Mom (me!) let him have 3 (!) red vines and 2 chocolate chip cookies. Oh, boy!
The hubs and I finished watching a movie (the BFG- it was so good) and by the time we came upstairs at 10:20 pm, the lights were on, his big brother Ethan was asleep and Declan was just having a party! He was playing with cars and bouncing them off the bed. His binky was thrown overboard (yes, he still has one). It was a party! No sleeping!
Now, he was sad to have the lights turned out and I ended up falling asleep on his floor to comfort him and waking up at 11:20 pm with carpet marks on my face to prove it.
Not my most favorite way to end the night. My favorite way is cuddling in bed. With my husband. The warm covers pulled up tight- I mean, loose!- pulled up loosely around us.

But, hey, even Unicorns poop. Sometimes.
