i am running out of steam. then end of the school year frieght train is nipping at my heals threatening to run me over. seriously. my beautiful, onery, baby boy (we’ll call him Mario from now on) likes to go to bed early and get up early. he also likes to wake up and play in the middle of the night – we’re going to have a long chat about that. my sweet, loving, 4 year old daughter (we’ll call her Princess Peach from now on) likes to stay up late and sleep in. I am getting smashed in the middle. when school is out i’m going to sleep for a week. okay let’s be honest, i’m not going to sleep for a week. i’m going to start staying up until midnight reading and beading and drawing and getting up at 6 with Mario. that’s what I’m going to do.
why the name changes for the kiddos? well, Beth of I Should Be Folding Laundry, posted something that got me thinking. people should be able to choose if they want their real name posted, our kids are real people. at 4 and 1 the kiddos aren’t really able to make an informed decision so I’m going to give them pen names until they are old enough to decide. goodness, if I have a blog that long it will be a miracle. sorry for the random mid-stream change of post direction.
