Good thought for the weekend, no?
I think it is interesting that I have only blogged once since last Friday. Interesting because it's unusual for a daily blogger like me. I often feel weird if 2 days go by--but for some reason this week--that weirdness has vanished into a time warp where I just didn't have anything to say.
I have nothing to say?
But today I was going through some old emails to my friend Mary when I found an awesome one.
Lest I forget what it is like to have a baby. And appreciate a washer and dryer in my home. A good story on that here.

1:00am --I hear Kai waking up but I don't go to him and he falls back asleep. I think, "maybe I'll get a good nights sleep tonight!"
2:30am --Kai wakes up screaming in his crib...I go to him in the dark and pick him up to see if he needs changed. Suddenly, I feel something dripping on my toes and turn on the light. He's dripping with diarrhea...and so is the crib. The entire crib.
2:40am --I get him out of the tub and am grateful for the smell of cleanliness although I am out of pajamas and have to get him dressed in his daytime clothes.
2:43am --I forget the smell of cleanliness as I throw everything that is soiled into a huge black contractor bag and tie it up. I think to myself that crib bumpers take entirely too long to get off.
2:54am --back to sleep with Kai in bed with me
3:30am --Brianna wakes up screaming and I am so tired that I let her in bed with us too.
4:45am --I wake up to Kai and myself being thrown up on by Brianna.
4:48am --- Everyone gets in the shower.
4:55am --- I get everyone dressed again and attempt to calm upset and sick children.
5:05am ---Remove all my bedding and put it in a huge black contractor bag and place it right next to the other bag in the hallway.
5:25 --back to sleep
6:00am --I wake up to the sound of Kai hitting the designated throw-up metal bowl with a candle and laughing.
I guess today is Laundry Day.
And speaking of weird. I have to go back and correct the word WEIRD every time I write because I always put the I before E. Awesome.
