Is it bad to tune your kids out?

I only ask because this is the second day in a row that school has been canceled due to snow.  I am sure that tomorrow will be a delay or even canceled all together.  SHRUG!  Who knows.

I had to cancel my urologist appointment because of the snow.  They had to reschedule it 13 DAYS AWAY!!!  Doesn't seen fair.

I've been working on my anxiety some.  The not able to sleep problem.  The other night I got in bed and tossed and turned then starting to have "pain" in my arms so I got up and slept on the couch again.  I don't think it's a "real" pain.  I think it's being anxious that kept me sleeping.  So, last night at 11:00 I went to bed.  My cell was off.  I kept telling myself to just close your eyes and everything that needs to be done can be done tomorrow.  I just thought about breathing in and blowing out.  It worked.

I went to sleep and was able to sleep all night in my own bed.  With Superdad and Baby M.  I woke up at 5:50 am and life was good.

I know that things will calm down.  I just know it.

I have to have more patience.  I pray for it every single day.  Do you hear me big guy? Patience.

I have been working on a special limited set for Only Ollie.  I finally finished and will be adding it to my ETSY.  What do you think?

Only Ollie on ETSY

I stumbled upon yor blog for the first time. Thanks for being so truthful. Hang in there, this parenting "thing" is not easier. If I were to give you one bit of advice, it would be to try those breathing techniques at other times of the day, in addition to nighttime. You are basically practicing one aspect of meditation, which can have truly powerful benefits. Good luck.
