*last night there were only two night wakings. And the night rover stayed in his own bed all night. Both minor were miracles.
*we slept in (?) all the way to 5:15.
*discovered 9 buds on my Christmas cactus!
*we listened to classical music (a 2-disk “morning mix” I got for a buck at the dollar store) and made applesauce muffins from the Deceptively Delicious cookbook.
*dragged ourselves to the library for story time. We heard two of the funniest children’s books I’ve heard in a while – I need to put them on hold and read them again. Anything with the line “I don’t want patience, I want chocolate cake!” in it is worth at least a second read 🙂
*saw that there is a house for rent in our neighborhood. Probably totally out of our budget but worth finding out. Who knows, maybe it’s a nice landlord who will give a young family a break. (A mama can dream, right? Come on, it has a yard!)
*broke a wheel off the stroller on our way home when Littler was sleeping in it and the elevator door started to close but the obnoxious wheels were doing their own thing rather than cooperating and moving in the proper direction to back off the elevator. What is it with us and the blasted double stroller wheels?
*meanwhile I made iced tea, sat on my bum, checked blogs and facebook, ate some lunch, knit, and called my mom to whine about the stroller.
*fixed the stroller? Maybe? Hopefully? Time will tell.
*listened to fun kids’ folk music and introduced the boys to jazz. We had borrowed the folk cd from the library and my brother had made me a jazz mix for our wedding reception that I love and listen to while making dinner whenever I can. It feels so classy.
*while pureeing avocados to make chocolate pudding the boys flung spaghetti at the wall. And denied doing it. Needless to say there was no pudding made.
*maybe I’ll even get to bed early. And sleep through the night. What can I say? I’m a hopeless optimist. At least when it comes to sleep.
