Parenting is Exhausting
We're trying something new at our house. I think it's called "parenting."
We've been very familiar with the "horizontal parenting" which Jessica has perfected, though we have probably given her a run for her money. But this is something new, and frankly, I'm worn out.
The past few weeks have seen trips to Lagoon, a trip to see Charlotte's Web, a trip to see Happy Feet, kite flying, bike riding, planting a garden, a trip to the book store, a long day at the Planetarium where the kids jumped on the moon, baseball practices and games, free ice cream, and probably a myriad of other non-horizontal activities that I have already forgotten about.
On the plus side, the kids (particularly The Princess) seem to be ready for bed earlier than ever before. They also seem to be happier.
I am just tired.
