deep breath

1. Owen did not sleep through the night last night. More like, slept for an hour at a time.

2. He is clammy- sweating, but cool to the touch. freaks me out.

3. It seems like as soon as I try to do something productive (ie unload dishwasher, remove bathmat that junie peed on last night from guest bathroom, brush teeth) Owen wakes up and starts SCREAMING (not his typical attitude).

4. there he goes again

New Year's Resolution Update


This is almost as good as Owen sleeping through the night.

180- Farts are Funny

So this is what happens when you don't post for almost a year. I am a mother. With a baby. (seemingly obvious connection, but surprisingly still a little bit shocking.) A mother whose baby is sleeping through the night- or at least, slept through last night. And I thought this day would never come.

The last thing I thought I would have time to do is blog, but as I must stay up till midnight to pump (until I can make other arrangements), I find I have lots of time on my hands, without the brainpower to do anything requiring great mental coordination.

Junie just farted. I have resigned myself to the fact that now two out of three people in my house will openly find farting funny for the rest of my life, and I give in. Sometimes, farts are funny. Ok, most of the time farts are funny. Especially chihuahua farts. (She was at the back door, ringing the bell to go out, so I will count that as an "excuse me".)

Is "fart" a socially acceptable word? What should Owen learn to call them? Why isn't there a better manual out there?
