Today's Random Thoughts

1.  Rain.  Meh.

2.  I'm trying to resign myself to the fact that this Christmas, like our school year, is just not going to look or feel the way we're used to.

3.  Double the listening pleasure--place a monitor next to two children playing loudly in the bathtub and hear them at an even higher decibel level while cleaning the kitchen! 

4.  Currently, Zaden is pooping 3 times a week.

5.  Currently, Lucan is pooping 3 times a day.

6.  I'm really looking forward to the day I can stop monitoring my children's poops!

7.  Milk blisters--they don't do a body good.  I saw the LC on base today, and we ruled out thrush.  I'm doing all the right things...just a matter of time, I guess, before this fully heals.  In the meantime, I'm praying for patience!  And trying not to be too concerned about the fact that the milk supply on that side seems to be decreasing. :-P  Maybe it's time to start up the fenugreek again.

8.  Do you ever hide children's library books so you don't have to read them aloud anymore?  Or am I the only one?  I'm just a little bit tired of The House on Hester Street.  It's nothing personal.

9.  Eight o' clock in the evening seems like a perfect bedtime to me.  Too bad it never happens for anyone other than Lucan and Kenna.

10.  So. Incredibly. Exhausted.  Can we really make it 5 1/2 more months?!

On the library book issue: Rob officially banned any book related to potty training. Anna loves them, but Rob refused to read them to her since she's been trained for over a year!

Debi said... can make it. You've already made it this far and that is saying ALOT! Plus in a few weeks you will have your wonderful Ted at home for a visit and that will be so wonderful for you and the kids. Hang on to that!...oh and thanks for the poop info, it's been a while ;-)

Praying for you to get a good night sleep and lots of refreshing naps during this busy time of year.

Your friend,


P.S. Did you get my package?

I'm so with you on the poop thing. He's 8 and I still have to check it. we've never done the book thing but I've hidden videos for a while because I just could hear it any more. And yes you can make it, you have the strength of Christ supporting you.

I am praying for you Beverly. My thoughts are with you this morning. And I agree 8pm is the PERFECT bedtime but it rarely happens here either.

Much Love your way, Sara.

Ok so I was sitting here giggling about hiding books. My husband finds books hidden under the couch all the time, not by the baby but by me....
