hello happy feet.
hello homemade birthday cakes. Aren't they the best. I want my children to remember that mama did her best. I LOVE letting them participate in making their own cake, designing it, or making it for their sibling. I don't go all out with some fancy plan - just whatever comes out at the moment. Henry wanted Harry Potter this year because of a new wii game that Charley got for Christmas. I thought it was silly, since he doesn't know much about Harry. So I found a little lego pack with Harry in it and we added that to our M & M flair.
Hello moment of regret. Henry said all day that he didn't want anyone to sing happy birthday to him. We all thought he really didn't mean it. So he went from this to this in a blink of the eye. We should have listened.
Hello weekend filled with more moments of getting things done around here balanced with some relaxing and play.
Hello failure at my first goal for the month...waking at 6:00am. Ed attempted to remind me to get up...but Syd's need to see me at 3:30 and 5:30 put a wrench in my desire to pop out of bed at 6:02. I am going to be realistic with myself as we get the whole sleeping through the night thing figured out. Still my goal to wake but not going to cry if I decide to sleep in a wee bit.
Hello little Miss Sydney and her need to NOT nap lately. We get a decent morning nap, most days. But the afternoon nap is just not happening and it is killing me. Busy girl needs to give this mama a moment to fold laundry without a distracted eye on her intense need to investigate every. single. thing. FOR THE LOVE OF NAPS.
hello readers. I know you are out there. I want to figure out how to get you to engage in things here more. Where are you sitting and reading this post right now...according to my stat thingy...someone might be from New York...or even Germany...Canada...Arizona or just down the road! Say hello! It would make me smile.
