Otherwise known as good morning sunshine!!!!

Dominic, age 2 years: This weekend hit the kids with colds. Which I mean is far superior to a stomach bug we are hoping to avoid at all costs. Dom seems to have been hit the hardest. There was definitely a lot of screaming yesterday on his part. And hey! He slept past 4:30 like four times this past week so maybe that lovely phase is fading? Please please please? He's taken to building himself little forts on the couch with all my pillows. You can only see just his tiny head peaking out from underneath the heap.

David, age 4 years: He slept in past nine yesterday which is late even for his highness. But he obviously needed it. Can you imagine getting fourteen hours of sleep? At once? I for one can not. His morning involved a lot of negotiating regarding the number of yogurt spoonfuls he needed to ingest and showing off his sight word prowess. Seven out of the new twenty-five that came home with his sister on Friday. Who teaches him these things? Not us. For sure.

Letty, age 6 years: She didn't leave her chambers until almost lunch time yesterday. She watched some iPad stuff, wrote in her little notebook, tied scarves together and clipped them to her hair so she could be Rapunzel... Just your basic Sunday activities. We moved her bed this week too, away from her window because it does get cold and it can be noisy. As someone who clearly loves mixing up her decor I totally understand her excitement at that. Oh and we started reading The Little House in the Big Woods because Laura Ingalls Wilder was my favorite... but I must have blocked out all the butchering talk? Yikes.

A day doing nothing at home was smartest for their physical health, even though it does damage to my mental health.

Past weekly shots found here.

  2. Oh, Dom's little face is breaking my heart! I hope it all passes soon!

  3. I am so sorry everyone has been hit with colds! I pray they start feeling better soon. Strep and the Flu are being passed around like candy around here. No thanks! Ugh! I love these little updates you do on the kids. Wahoo for sleeping in past 4:30! What a treat! I love Letty’s Sunday activities. So fun! I used to be like that as a kid – loved to be in my own room doing things by myself.


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
