Sitting here with kiddos asleep and hubby out and about in the real world. Oldest sick with ear infection and don't think I have left the house except for Doctor office and pharmacy in 72 hours. Poor me. My biggest issue, besides normal sick child stuff, is a seven month old who constantly wakes up at 4:30 soaked in urine. We have tried changing him at all hours of the night, and using night time diapers. The WORST in all creation is the pajamas. Who in the hell invented children's pajamas? The snaps for the love of Christmas are impossible to line up unless you are in spotlights and not sleep deprived. The zipper versions of the pjs are obnoxious as well. I should design something. What think?

We just got back from dinner with our childless friends at our favorite Mexican restaurant. Could these friends have any more patience and love for us? I mean, they show up at 5pm, save us parking and entertain our 3 year old for two hours. We drink, we laugh and we eat. It was just wonderful. We continue to be shown grace and love from all walks of our lives. Just AWESOME!

After five and a half months of a colicky baby, one tends to think it will never end. Then, all of the sudden here is the baby I longed for since his birth. Now, I have a predicament. He is great and smiling and growing. All of the expensive formulas are gone. The fights with the husband are memories. But, he has been getting up at 5:30am. I have to go to bed at 7pm just to keep up with him and the 3 year old. How do I complain about this? I mean compared to how he was, this is ecstasy. But I am tired. Really tired. The sun is just around the horizon and I want the day to be over so I can go back to sleep. So Tired!
