Getting to Know Mom Series: Day 24

This was a fun weekend...we went to celebrate a few days away for Mr. Pancakes' birthday.
We went to a lovely hotel overlooking the lake, did some walking on the marina, a little fishing, a little shopping, a lot of laughing, smiling, enjoying, cuddling, went to Ocean City for the day, spent time as a family....it was the perfect family vacation/celebration of life and love.

Now onto day 24....Getting to Know Mom Series...today is all about: What's your favorite and least favorite thing about parenthood?
Another fun question indeed.  My favorite thing about parenthood is:
*The ability to watch this little person grow and develop and learn new skills....it's just a wonderful experience

The least favorite thing is:
Lack of sleep...i don't think i have slept a full eight hours since i was six or seven months pregnant. 
I am not complaining but i MISS sleeping...sleeping in...just sleep!! 

Lesson for Day 24: To be a parent is to relive your childhood all over again.

Awww...glad you had a nice weekend! Happy birthday to your hubby.

I hear ya on the sleep. I mentioned it to my mom and she said "oh you'll sleep again...the day after they get married". Not sure if she was being funny cause I know I was of course THE PERFECT daughter (being sarcastic here :-)).

I'm not exactly sure how I've learned to deal with less sleep...and unfortunately Elyse now has me trained so I can't even sleep in when I want to! Ughh...

Sounds like such a fun time celebrating your husband's birthday! I'm so excited to watch our little daughter grow and become a person! Not so excited for the lack of sleep coming my way ha!

Happy belated birthday to the mister.

I haven't slept 8 hrs in years either. I sleep no more than 6 hours a night. I know it's bad but I feel horrible in the morning when I have more than that. Strange, huh?
