January Slump

So, I am now officially going through my January slump.  Every year, without fail, I go through a period in the month of January where I am so completely unmotivated to do anything.  It's interesting, I identified this about myself quite a few years back; and, no matter what I do I can't seem to ward it off.  So, this year I have decided to embrace it!  I told my husband the other night that I was not motivated to do ANYTHING but eat, so that is what I have been doing.  Now I am thinking it should only last a few more days & I will be back to my normal self.  I guess it better or all that work I did last year to lose that last 10 lbs. will have been futile.

On another note, my 2 1/2 year old son tends to play with my hair while I am getting him dressed.  This morning he says "your hair is lovely & you are beautiful".  I am thinking he had to have seen that in a movie somewhere.  However, yesterday my Mom told me that when she was playing with that same little sweetie and exclaimed "darn it" he stopped and told her "it's damn it".  You know I guess he can't be perfect all the time, huh?  

Finally, the other night we were coming home from a rather chaotic family trip to Home Depot.  My 4 1/2 year daughter old hangs back with me and tells me, "Man, they (referring to her little brother & sister) just wear me out.  It's really hard being the oldest."  She takes her job as an older sibling so seriously.

  1. We oldest children really do take our job seriously. It's a great responsibility. No wonder so many of us become teachers, nurses or other caregivers!
