Normally, I stay up until 1 or 2 am.
But not the past few nights.
I'm exhausted from traveling.
Being away is energy-draining. Everything is a little out-of-whack. Naptimes and bedtimes are skewed. We can't jump on the bed and there are no books here to read before bedtime. We don't have a baby bouncer or our jogging stroller or our nice cozy beds. We can't let our baby crawl around on the floor and our 3-year-old can't go to the bathroom by herself because the toilets are too big. I can't wear my nursing pajamas (because they're not exactly modest) and it's tough living out of a giant suitcase that is jumbled with baby clothes, our clothes, socks, and underwear.
Each night I fall into bed alongside our baby and sleep soundly.
It's a good kind of tired. But it's still tired.
That said, we're having so many delightful adventures. Last weekend, we were in sunny California at the Happiest Place on Earth. And now we're in Washington - the rainiest place on earth (ha!). It's pretty here - green and overcast and damp. I don't mind the gray skies and the drizzly forecast a bit. It's pleasant, actually - peaceful. We've been to the park and the beach and the children's museum...and the outlet mall.
Oh, and our friend Dan took photos of our family today (he has a Nikon and a knack for photography). That was my favorite part of today:
Stay tuned for product reviews, travel reviews, and lots of exciting giveaways. This weekend is going to be jam-packed.
