Too much too soon

I'm realizing now that perhaps I've bitten off more than I can chew with this blogging thing. Hopefully, the 3 of you checking my blog on a regular basis won't be too disappointed that it's not updated more frequently than it is. Talk about pressure! I actually felt guilty over the long weekend that I had nothing to blog about. Unless of course you count the stories from Lauren.

We spent part of the day Saturday with my family in Searcy celebrating 4 family birthdays - there are acually 7 family birthdays spread across 2 weeks, but only 4 were in Searcy to celebrate. Anyway, we're on our way back home late Saturday night, and Lauren is freshly bathed and in her pajamas in the car seat. We've only been in the car 5 minutes or so and I'm asking her about her day. Here's how the conversation went from there:

Me: Did you have a good day today Lauren?
Lauren: Yes
Me: Did you have fun playing with Michael and Joseph (Lauren's cousins)?
Lauren: I'm going to sleep Mommy. (said very much in an "I'm tired, can we please stop the Inquisition" tone of voice)

Needless to say, I stopped asking questions and let the poor tired child drift off to dreamland. Now that my guilty conscience is soothed, I can get back to the cleaning and laundry that I have to do while my little one sleeps.
