the blahs

Well, Randy has been gone the last couple of days. The weather here has been rainy and cold. The kids have been going crazy inside and I am about ready to go crazy! Lanna and Sienna want to play "rough" which means jumping on each other and pulling each other down and all kinds of heart stopping thinks. The thing is they like it! Both of them! Every once in a while one will get hurt. You know the drill. It's all fun and games until somebody gets there eye poked out....

Ruby has been trying to crawl. She is a maniac. Rolling all over and thinking she's a bad ass. Currently she is stuck feet first under the end table. Never mind she just spotted me.

Lanna has figured out how to get out of her crib. Which is always fun. The things is we could lower it. Or we could just take the side down to make it a toddler crib. She is almost 2 1/2..... sigh...My babies are getting too big!

Waiting for all the babies to sleep

I was at a friends house way back when.... Well, let's see.... Prolly about 4ish years ago. She had recently gone through some infertility and then got pregnant. She had this baby. Was already licensed to do Foster care, but had declined any kids as she was pregnant. After she had the first she ended up taking care of a nephew long term. So she had a 1 yr old and now a 9 month old. But wait, then she got a desperate call from the Social worker. Please we have no other place.... Well, what she hadn't told anybody was that she was pregnant AGAIN! So she now had a 2 yr old, a 1 yr old, pregnant, and a new born! All those years of praying for a baby and now she is over loaded! I came out to visit her one evening and was in total awe of her taking care of 3 babies while she pregnant! Not been pregnant myself yet the appreciation was not fully developed. As the night was nearing an end, one child sleeping, one child on the way, and one still awake she turned to me and said "This is what we do everynight. We wait for all the babies to sleep." I've often felt that way, my dear friend. At the end of the day, I just wait for all the babies to sleep.

Iced Coffee

I made my own! Shocking, I know. But it it turned out not too bad. It is a work in progress. I will post when I find the right recipe.

In other news, I am going to a mother daughter banquet today at my grandma's church. I'm phsyched. Yes, you guessed it, that was sarcasm. I love my grandma dearly, but bringing my 8 month old, 2 year old, and 3 yr old to an event with food at nap time just makes me want to run and hide in my bed.

In other other news, I have been having WEIRD dreams about being pregnant and/or having labor. Which is totally freaking me out. Next month is when all other previous ages of the youngest were when I found out I was pregnant. They are all literally 19 months apart. I am not enthused about being pregnant again right now and am not planning on it! Maybe I am just subconsciously trying to work that out... Who knows. I would really like to get another foster baby, but I would REALLY like to actually get some sleep for once in the last 4 years!!!
