I Think I’ll Keep Him!

The past three nights, sleepwise, have been really rough.  Although I Super Nanny’ed Sierra into sleeping through the night, Brooke seems to have forgotten how to sleep on her own, or longer than 90 minutes for that matter.  I blame it on teething and my MIL (she visited last weekend when she had a killer cold and managed to pass it onto both of the girls).  I’m a walking zombie (again).

Daddy Rob, knows that no matter how tired I am, I can’t sleep in longer than 8 am.  I have no idea why – I just can’t.  Anyways, I was dozing in bed around 7:30 am when I heard my door creak open.  I rolled over, looked up and saw the greatest sight ever:  Daddy Rob holding Brooke’s highchair tray with a full breakfast in bed on it, and beside him stood sweet little Sierra holding a jar of jam.  BREAKFAST IN BED!  BACON!  EGGS!  TOAST!  JUICE!  And the icing on the cake – COFFEE!  For me!  How sweet is that?  You know what?  I think I’ll keep him :)

Things My Kids Do That Doesn’t That Piss Me Off

I love my girls.  Lots and lots and lots.  And there are so many things they do that I absolutely love and adore:

  • When Sierra calls me "Queen Mommy"
  • The way Brooke raises one eyebrow when she’s studying something intently
  • The fact that Sierra eats beans because she thinks they’re "magic beans" that will make her a big girl
  • When Brooke gives me one of those big open mouth baby kisses on my cheek
  • How excited they both get when Daddy Rob comes home from work
  • When Sierra wraps her skinny little preschooler arms tightly around my neck and says: I love you mommy (I never ever want to forget that feeling)
  • when Brooke scoots around the playroom on her butt to get to all of Sierra’s "big girl" toys

Sigh – they’re both SO amazing!  What do your kids do that you love and adore?
