DUE: It doesn't help that the sinus crud is hitting for a second round. I was thinking it was just allergies until last night, when I felt like perhaps I'd been hit by a truck or forced off a cliff and pushed underwater all with a clothespin stuck to my nose. Dramatic? Yeah, without a doubt. But I do feel like crap. Which makes me just want to sleep. Which with two babes 2 and under is a hot commodity. Let's not even start mentioning the working on responding with grace and patience. Yup. Dramatic. Of course, then...
TRES: I read Dwija's update on her sweet baby. Not good news, my friends. Two things struck me. One, how much I think it is the end of the world when it is probably only the middle of the afternoon. Second, how Dwija's mind works in utter selflessness as she decides she needs to update all her readers because they are no doubt praying and worrying about her. I think it is safe to say I would be locking my sorry self in a black hole physically and virtually to wallow in an ocean of tears and anger. Lesson learned on how actually to behave. Oh, and third thing. I am so thankful that I'm fairly certain my doctor would never ever ask me the question of whether I want to voluntarily terminate my pregnancy, regardless of the dire outlook. Let's be storming heaven with some prayers, fellow warrior women. Let's show doc what a miracle looks like in the hands of our mighty God!
CUATRO: Parenting the second time around has gotten a little lax up in here. Stain on the shirt? Ehhh, we'll put a new one on tomorrow. First taste of custard before we wean off the formula? Eh, why not? I was far more protective (perhaps over-protective) about moving Li'l G along in the food category. The babe has reaped the benefits of second child-dom. And he's a-lovin' it!

SETTE: Answer: a ukulele, a ping pong paddle, a pirate hat, race cars still in their package and sparkly shoes. What are random things that currently grace our living room? (Also acceptable, what are signs that Casa McCormick needs help getting organized?) Thanks for playing! If you've got any tips organizational tips (aside from the "make sure everything has a place or get rid of it" obvious statement), I'm all ears! We're talking creative ways to organize that are low maintenance here. Thank you kindly!
