A Scene

From our morning…



Deeder eating Grandma’s bread topped with raspberry jam and cream cheese, with a tippy full of milk.
Carly having Gerber yogurt drink diluted in one of Deeder’s cup.
Next to her foot is my cup of coffee, one of three, or did I have four this morning?

I woke finding myself in a not-too-promising mood yet again. Why do I find myself day after day opening my eyes feeling as I hadn’t slept at all. When noon came and shortly after it nap time I lay down and got a solid hour in.
It was rare to have both the kids asleep at once so I grabbed the chance and was so thankful that I did!

See that beautiful smile on Deeder’s face? OK. It’s a camera smile, but he was a happy good boy today and I was totally awake to enjoy it.

Why Carly has been crying so much at night is still a mystery. She cries All The Time. Afraid of the dark maybe? It’s that silly.

And so it begins. Day is done, now it’s 10:30pm and I hear her now–warming up for a busy night.

Update: 10:48PM Carly’s simmered down, in fact I don’t hear her at all. Could be that the new mobile Darren bought for her at Target is making a difference? Diederick has woken up and is playing in his bed. He’s bashing something together, making shooting sounds and talking about cows and dogs–hmm.

    Maybe the amount of caffeine you’re ingesting has affected her sleep cycles? That happened to me! The less she slept, the more I drank, the less she slept. If she falls asleep easily, but can’t stay asleep it may be a possiblity. Hang in there! I love reading your blog. Makes me feel less lonely when I’m cooped up with the kiddos.

    I think Kathy has hit upon the answer! Brilliant, Kathy!
