...When you're as busy as we are! I can't believe that it has been two weeks since our camping trip, and all that has happened since, and I haven't shared it here yet. I am so sorry, to those who don't follow me, but just pop in now and again to see what I've posted. I hate to keep you all wondering and waiting for the goods. There are so many people who tell me that they read my blog faithfully. Here's your call, folks - leave me a comment, chew me out for leaving you hangin' in the wind. It's easy - just hit the comment button at the bottom of this post. Even if you don't have a Google account, you can leave a comment by choosing Anonymous from the little drop down menu (Comment as...) after you say what you want to say. Just sign your name at the end of your comment so I know who you are. I LOVE to hear from those who visit us here - it is nice to know you are out there reading. I feel so lonely when no one comments.
Part of the issue with me not posting is that Laini has started rolling over like her survival depends on it. Which means my little wonderful sleeper, whom I used to put to bed and not hear from until 6 hours later, now squirms and rolls over, waking herself up sometimes as many as 5 times before I give up what I'm doing and go to bed with her. She is also getting really good at fighting sleep, almost as good as Maxwell, so that between the two of them, it sometimes takes me 1 1/2 to 2 hours to get them both to sleep at night. I can start at 8 pm, sometimes earlier, and if I'm lucky they'll both finally be asleep at 10 or so. Then I can start something, if I have managed to stay awake. Yeah, most nights I just don't have the will power to stay awake while lying in bed with two warm little bodies for an hour and a half, reading, then singing and nursing, then singing some more. Imagine that. I'll wake up around midnight or one, on nights when Adam is out of town for work, turn off the lights and go back to bed. Tonight, he's obviously here, and made sure I got up, so here I am to post! Yay! I have some gluten-free graham crackers in the oven (thank you Gluten-Free Girl!! ), because VBS starts bright and early tomorrow morning, and they are serving graham crackers. I have a list of the week's food, so that every morning I can walk into the cafeteria with my containers marked for Bella and Kane, with their allergy-friendly foods to match the menu. Most people say, "Oh, I'm so sorry you have to deal with all those allergies! What a pain." Me, I think it's fun, and I like being up after midnight making homemade graham crackers for my kids.Plus, I'm building memories for them and for me - I just went upstairs to the pitter-patter of little feet to find Max outside of the bedroom door, with sleepy eyes. He said, "Me mell, me mell FOOD. WHY?" We eat healthier, I know what is going into their delicate little systems, and I have a reason to be trying new recipes! I just can't wait until Thursday - Pamela's Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Cookies are just waiting to be layered with some homemade (rice and coconut milk) tapioca pudding for dirt desert, complete with Clif Kid Twisted Fruit Ropes for worms. Yum.
Mmmm, I think I'll have one more piece of warm, corner graham cracker and go to bed. I'll have to get used to posting during the day so I can be more regular. Just remember, friends, the squeeky wheel gets the oil. Help me post more often by nagging me in comments!
