Fill In the Blanket

Our  nighttime hi-jinks continue.  I’ve come to accept that they will always continue, or at least for the next 3 years.  If one is peaceful and sleeping the way they’re supposed to, it’s a safe bet the other one will … Continue reading

I’ve bitched a lot about sleep deprivation since I started this blog.  For years, I’ve complained about being tired and moaned (justifiably) about how early my children wake up every single day.  Monday should have been sweet – a moment … Continue reading

Things That Go Dump In the Night

My children continue to take turns keeping me awake.  To be fair, Stella has largely gotten better.  I think once she’s back in school and settled in, this will improve even more.  As for Felix?  Who knows.  Maybe he’s growing.  … Continue reading

Ramble-Rousing

Things continue to be weird around here.  Of course, when you have kids I guess any/every day is weird.  We’re trying to keep Stella as busy and engaged as possible until she starts her new school.  I figure we will … Continue reading

I wonder if anyone has ever gone to trial for murder by sleep deprivation?  In all seriousness, I think my children are trying to kill me – very very slowly.  First there is Stella:  nearly 3 years of sleepless nights … Continue reading
