I try to have the boys in bed as close to 7 p.m. as possible. I like them better this way. Lately it is still light at 7 p.m. and apparently it hasn't gone unnoticed.

Last night Sawyer woke up at 2 and was demanding my attention. I was trying to sleep on the couch downstairs so I ignored him for 10 minutes in hopes that someone else might attend to him. It became clear that wasn't going to happen so I went up to see what his problem was. He demanded that I open his blinds so that he could see out his window. Then upon looking outside he declared angrily "It is dark! It was light and now it is dark! It is supposed to be dark and then light and then you wake up! It wasn't time to go to bed!" Can't put one over on that kid.

And in other news, if you want to keep your pregnancy weight gain in check I recommend the following:

11 weeks of constant nausea to be followed by lactose intolerance + heartburn to be followed by 1 week or more of Hand Foot and Mouth disease with oral bacterial infection.

If it worked for me, it can work for you!

At some point I really will post all of the old posts that should be on here. Luckily there aren't any major holidays in the last quarter of the year or anything so it isn't like I am that behind.

What in the world is hand foot and mouth disease?!? That sounds horrible! Sorry you've had a rough pregnancy Erin. Don't you find out the gender soon? Can't wait to hear!!!

Three words: Room darkening blinds. ;-) Your kids always make me laugh. I'm sure they are much more hilarious to those of us not living with them!

I hope you are on the mend from your horrid illness.
