I'm in Chicago for work and instead of going out last night, or working out, or watching Lost. I slept. I slept from 7:30 to 6:30. It was bliss. Glorious bliss.

Children's books sadness

They are throwing away children's books made before 1985. I have many kids' books I have saved for Vi from when I was a child in the 1970's! and I was fine. My Charlie Brown Dictionary, Richard Scary's Best Word Book Ever Book, and a bunch of Little Golden Books.

The article says, "that color illustrations in some old children’s books do flunk the new and stringent rules set by CPSIA for lead content; this does not necessarily mean they pose any hazard to actual children, provided the children use the books for reading and visual enjoyment rather than as something to chew, lick, or devour holes through".

How sad. Should I keep the books for Vi or not? I'm still thinking....

6 months old!

I cannot believe my child is 6 months old.

Here she is in a sweater my MIL made for her.

Things are just unpredictable and crazy. This week was something else. Vi was up each night at 3:30 or so, which she hadn't done in over a week. Monday and Tuesday I was late to work because of car issues and had to drop off Paul. I didn't make it to the gym all week or even really get to exercise at home. I had to cancel two meetings and a dentist's appointment. P worked late hours and this morning woke up with diarrhea and vomiting, and is actually staying home from work (He never ever does that). Vi kept refusing the bottle, leading me to have to pick her up early from daycare on Thursday and try and get her to take some fluids and then be late this morning because I had to take her to the doctor. (She's okay but we are keeping an eye on it). The MD as well as daycare were concerned about her not being 'strong' and not even trying to sit up yet and seldom rolling over. The MD wants to see her in a week or so and get her started at Physical Therapy. I don't want my baby to be behind. :(

Keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

C'mon mom!

Show me the cereal! I need cereal.

My child is like Pavlov's dog. She starts drooling and yelling as soon as she is in the high chair. The high chairs means cereal. She loves to eat.
