exhaustion

The bottom right reads:

Note to mothers:
Exhaustion may be dangerous - especially to children who haven't learned to avoid it by pacing themselves. Exhaustion opens the door a little wider to the bugs and ailments that are always lying in wait. Sugar puts back energy fast - offsets exhaustion. Synthetic sweeteners put back nothing. Energy is the first requirement of life. Pay safe with your young ones - make sure they get sugar every day.

since being pregnant, i've kind of withdrawn myself from a few things. i'm not as talkative and outgoing as i usually am and like to be. the word is EXHAUSTION.

i'm ok in the morning, but by afternoon (when my morning sickness kicks in) i'm worthless. so, i tend to stay in my cave and just get through it.

i'm so thankful for my fabulous friends and playgroups. they keep me going. Daryl has been super sweet and attentive. he usually is, but he's so there for me....no judgments, no demands.

one other thing. Mia. i just look at her and my heart aches. she's blossoming into such an amazingly sensitive and bright child. i'm interested in meeting the child that's been sucking all the energy out of me. Daryl and i have a pretty good baby making recipe :) now all i need is a nap

With Sophia, during my first trimester, I had bone-deep fatique. I know how you feel. I didn't have a toddler to run after, but I could barely make it through teaching everyday.

Once the 2nd trimester came around, things were better. Hang in there, mamasita!
