Let's see now...

It's been a crazy week.

We didn't end up going to the lake as planned... Jason felt like crap, and the weather was supposed to suck, so we stayed home.

I almost wish we would have gone, because then Alexandra wouldn't have stolen my scrapbooking pens and used them on my 320 threadcount, Egyptian Cotton sheets. We are all seriously lucky that she wasn't home when I found the sheets. It took quite a while for me to calm down. It took over three hours of scrubbing to get the ink "somewhat" out. "Shout" works wonders, but even it failed where she had held the pens down and let the colour bleed onto the sheets.

Monday was a gong show, where Alex decided to skip her afternoon nap completely. She's never done that before at all. Although apparently she just saved it up for today, because today her afternoon nap was 4 hours! Now if only Stephen could fall asleep at the same time, it would be lovely! You would think the day would have gone well with her taking a four hour nap, but truth is that she was an absolute bear all morning, and Stephen refused to take his morning nap until just before lunch, so he was a little bear too. I haven't actually had this bad a day since before he was born.

Stephen is doing really well at sitting up, although he's still pretty wobbly. We put him in the jolly jumper yesterday... so cute! It took him a while to get going, but once he figured it out he was full of smiles and giggles. He's also been enjoying the exersaucer lately... really started playing with the toys. He's started to get to that age where he definitely needs some stimulation... not just content to watch the world around him anymore, now he's going to take a bit of work.

See, I went through 2 kids 19 mos apart, so now whenever I get nervous about having a baby again, I think it's going to be a piece of cake compared to my first 2 because my others will be close to 9-12 when a last baby comes.

You have my sympathies.

Thanks. There are definitely advantages and disadvantages. I'm hoping the advantages will pay off in the long term.

I agree that it's good to get it over with and have them close together (at least 2 anyways). Maia and Wyatt are quite close.

My mother had my last two brothers 15 months apart. So you're not doing so badly after all.

My mom uses to say, "Once you have children, everything you enjoy gets put in storage...until they grow up."

I never knew what she meant, but by now I have figured it out. Children just do things like that, breaking the good china or dying the sheets.

Sorry it happened, and I know how you feel.

And just so you know, because it's easy to forget, you only have to survive the first few years. After that, you get a reasonable break for a few. Unless, of course, your children really are spawns from the Omen...
