Always Running

I feel like I'm always running these days.  No, not literally, though I wish that was the case.  Instead it's just one thing after the other.  Classes, followed by homework, followed by baby feeding, changing, bathing, development, playing, followed by more homework, followed by cleaning and errand running.  Then it's just wash, rinse, repeat.

I am enjoying school.  I am finding my groove, mostly.  I am looking forward to my future as a nurse.  And yet, I so miss my lazy days with my daughter.  I love sleeping in until 7 or after and having nothing to next to nothing major on the agenda.  I miss long snuggles with her soft, warm little babiness every day.  There is no sound quite like her sweet voice babbling to her Mommy all day.  And now, now she's becoming so much more fun too!  She says Mama.  Her Nanny said she signed it too!  Such a smart baby!  I don't want to miss one moment with her.  And so now, I cherish each second I have with her even more.

I'm so glad to hear that you're finally hitting your stride with school!

It's absolutely adorable to hear that Kaia is signing your name!

I think it's great that your finding your groove. That's the most important thing to do.
It does seem like a lot, but you'll be so happy once your finished with school.
Hang in there... it sounds like your going a great job all around.

At least it will be worth it once you are done with school. And it does make you appreciate them so much more huh?

I think moms are always running. It's so hard to find that down time. That's what is so great about being away from her is how much more you'll appreciate the time you do have with her, all the good and the frustrating! Pursuing something for yourself is making you a great mom!

You are brave and you will get through this. It must be so hard with your little girl, but keep going! Plus you've already found your groove!

You are one busy mama!

That must be so hard! Is the program you're in two years in length? Maybe you'll at least get the summer off with Kaia. What type of nursing would you like to do when you graduate?
