sleep baby, sleep.

His dresser is still UNstriped and UNpainted. I told you I'm bad at this. But, let me tell you the things I have accomplished. I have spent much needed social time with friends and wine. I have baked...alot. Most of which, I should be posting pictures of so that you can see I am doing something with these days besides frittering them away and snacking on baby toes and baby rolls. I have set up college funds for my lovelies, which should have been the first thing on the list considering it has been on my mind ever since number one was in the womb, over two years ago. I have done a gajillion (I'm positive it is a number when referring to laundry in a family of four) loads of laundry. Jason and I cancelled our cable, which has been on the list for almost a year. I swear those cable companies...talk about frittering. They FRITTER away some serious cash from us poor American Idol addicted people. It feels good though. The family is reading more, interacting with nature, communicating more and going to bed earlier, all of which have to be healthy changes. We've kind of had to reprogram ourselves to not depend on the television for entertainment but I feel good about it and so does my bank account. We created a compost pile and have vowed to start composting all of our food waste. These things are important people...the dresser is so UNdone but so many many things are DONE.

And one more thing before I go...he slept through the night last night dear friends. It took him every bit of five months but he did it. He slept untill 6:30 a.m. The family is celebrating by watching a thunderstorm on the front porch. Spring is here and so is thunderstorm watching...one of mama's favorite pastimes. I hope my babes love it too. The rain falls and the babies sleep, it is a perfectly gray day. I just need to bake a cake...and maybe have a quick snack of baby toes.


such a grand idea.

As I was browsing the latest posts on my favorite blogs, I was lead to this genius blog http://rulesformyunbornson.tumblr.com/ and I instantly fell for the idea. How clever? While my husband and I still have a small amount of coolness left in our repetoire, we could compile a list of rules and advice to guide them long after we're uptight and so very UNcool.

I've heard there are websites that you can make your own books. Maybe we'll start the text now and publish them in a few years when we've exhausted all of our bits of wisdom. Must find these bookmaking websites and start my own rules. What are your thought of making one for each, the boy and the girl. I think it is a must. I can't tell my son to "always have bronzer at the ready. glowing skin is an easy fix for a gray day." But, you better believe that will make it on my list of advice to my lovely daughter. Oh, how I will laugh when she gets in to makeup - it will be a lovely experience helping her become a young lady.

Hopefully Jason is as into this as I am...we shall see.

peace and love,
