Blaine says boys don’t whine. I disagree. See for yourself. Ok, tears done. Photos commence?Nope, not so much.Now?Yep. Time for some deep-cleaning in the toes. Perfect. But the flowers were pretty! The best photo I got of them all together? It’s slightly out of focus, Sterling’s not happy, and they are all looking only somewhat […]
An update just for mom.
Feel free to read on, should you dare, but these are things only mothers care about. You know, the rambling, “oh-that’s nice” kind of stuff. I’m too tired for humor or even semi-intelligent thought tonight. We have an application in for a rental. Of course, it hit the weekend and we’re still waiting to hear. […]
Me and My Big Mouth
My morning yesterday started out with an email from a guy on CraigsList. I’d emailed him the night before about a rental property he had advertised there. The email said that he doesn’t rent out three bedroom houses to families larger than 4 people. I was shocked. Really?! Never heard of such a thing before. […]
In the grocery store checkout, the conversation went something like this: “What does Sterling mean?”“Of good character; genuine.”“Of good character or ding-a-ling?!”“Genuine. Real. Not ding-a-ling.”“Oh!” This was a conversation not with Eden, but with the 9 year old son of a very good friend of mine. It still has me giggling. The look on his […]
Can I use the meanderings one again? The overtired part definitely applies here too.
Then again, it usually does. Ruby opposes sleep for Momma. Really, why on earth do I let her get away with this? Nearly a year old an nursing twice in the night. Spoiled baby, that one is. “Three blind mice, three blind mice… they all ran after the farmer’s market…” Seriously, these children need to […]
Meanderings of an overtired mind.
I drank coffee yesterday afternoon. Free samples from Taster’s Choice, mmm. But I digress. Coffee – at 3 pm. At 1:30 am, when I was chattering Blaine’s nearly-asleep ear off, I remembered. Apparently even 3pm is too late for caffeine. At 6 am Ruby reminded me of that, when she was ready to get up. […]
Letting a cat out of the bag
While this may come as a shock to many of you (not!) Blaine and I have not been thrilled with what our corner of the world has to offer. We’ve been here for nearly four years, and for most of that have been looking to move elsewhere. Now, with a deadline and decision to move […]
Make up your mind already, Momma.
How awful is it that when Sterling hollered for the second time in 3 minutes from his bed that he needed to potty that I waited a few minutes, hoping he’d just go in the diaper? Really, why? And where is it written that with a diaper, he’ll stay dry all night, but without, wake […]
It was a really nice thought.
But when I get woke up, not once but twice, by Sterling somewhere in the wee hours because he needs to pee, I start to wish he wasn’t potty trained. Or that he’d just pee in the diaper he’s wearing. Nope, take him potty. Then feed Ruby, because he woke her up and she couldn’t […]
Tell me why…
Blaine decided to cross over to the dark side… Firefox, that is. He’s been using Opera, but we all know Firefox is the best. This created new problems – namely, I use Firefox. Don’t mess with my tabs! He figured out how to create different users, so we’re all set. Not so much. Firefox had […]
