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.


  1. ok, it's now almost mid-night and I can't get enough of your blogs! This one, I HAD to comment on b/c my husband would LOVE you. He's been wanting to get rid of cable for some time...wants us to spend more time talking, reading, etc., etc. So, I just have to know--how is life w/o cable? what about FOODNETWORK? That's the one thing I couldn't handle giving up...Giada, Ina, Tyler, Bobby--they are my friends...

  2. hmmm...it was a weird trtansition. we would put the kids to bed, walk down the stairs and look at eachother like, "what in the hell do we do now?" we were so programmed to walk down stairs and turn on the tv. with the money i save on the cable bill...i buy cookbooks and subscriptions to food magazines. they are my friends now. an added bonus: i don't have to deal with a certain semi-homemade lady's bull in between the good shows.
