Motherhood equals tired

Everyone knows that when you have a baby, you can expect to lose a lot of sleep. That whole sleep when the baby sleeps thing is only good for your first child. But here's the thing no one really tells you, your probably never going to sleep much from then on. From the first cries of your precious bundle until your last child gets married. Well at least I hope that by the time Juju is married he'll be out of my bed.
After babyhood comes toddlerhood. At that time you may be able to catch up from the last 14 months of sleep deprivation but your probably going to want to catch up on all those things that are impossible to do with a busy toddler reeking havoc all day. Like... Shower. Or you might want to just bask in the silence.
Around 2-3 kids ditch the nap and you ditch any hope of a quiet minute to yourself. But darn it your little genius is just learning so much and truth be told you just know he's smarter than any other kid his age is or ever was. So, you let the no nap thing slide.
By the time your kids start school you know you'll be up early every day getting them out on time for the bus. Then there's field trips, after school activities, forgetting about projects until the last minute, missing the bus and having to drive them to school... Maybe that's just my kids, lol. Even my oldest who is in high school needs rides here and there early and late. I vaguely remember what it's like not to be tired. And time for myself? This is it. This is my only "me time" and sometime it takes many many fleeting moments to complete a post like this. I'd rather be napping (just kidding).
I just want to know, will I ever get to rest? I'm guessing I'll sleep off the first three months of my retirement.

Bil Jac Two Bowl challenge



  My chihuahua Quico is ridiculously picky. He will only eat certain food (though he prefers people food, the spoiled little brat!) and dry food has to be moistened. The other issue is that for some reason he will only eat if he is alone. He is a very nervous and anxious dog. I don't know why he has these hang ups but he does, and it's making the two bowl challenge very difficult.
  The Two Bowl Challenge is where you give your dog a choice of a bowl of his regular current food next to a bowl of Bill Jac's super premium dog food and see which one he chooses. There's no need for any transition time since Bil Jac is made with real chicken and no fillers are added. We chose the "Small Breed Select" which is the Chicken, oatmeal and yam formula. Dud you know that 4lbs of chicken go into a 6pm bag?! That is pretty impressive.
Well, I did this first video hoping Quico would lose his inhibitions when he saw/smelled the new food. Pretty much a fail. Not for Bil Jac but for me and my video. It's kind of funny and maybe a little sad but take a look...



Thanks Quico, way to make ne look like a fool, haha.
BUT I tiptoed away and a few minutes later I snuck back and took this video:



  So, he actually did choose the Bil Jac. Yay! I guess that's a score for Bil Jac. Now if they can just cure him of his weird eating anxiety it would be perfect! I am very impressed with this good so far. They even include a guarantee that if you don't "see the difference in the way your dog looks and feels on Bill Jac" meaning in the coat, the energy level and muscle tone they will give you your money back. I can't wait to see the changes in my little Quico!

I am a member of BzzAgent and received a free bag of Bil Jac dog food to review and give my 100% honest opinion of. I was not compensated in any way for this post.
