All in all, I had such a good time Will this weekend – in fact, it was so great, that I’m in tears this morning at my desk because I miss him so much.

I don’t understand why its so hard to be aware from them now? Why not just after they were born? I don’t usually think this way, but there is a sacrifice I’m making in being the one to financially support my family. It just hasn’t been so hard until the last month or so.

I’m so excited. I’m taking Will (just the two of us) to Wisconsin Dells tomorrow to meet up with a very dear girlfriend of mine from college and her two boys.

After airline travel (and travel with Steve and Ellen), this feels very low key. Its in a car, on our own schedule, and with a semi-reasonable and semi-independent human being. Piece-o-cake. And – Will will enjoy the water park so very much.

Random thoughts:

I'm going to remember this the next time I feel like life with two small ones is akin to pouring lemon juice on papercuts or pushing rocks uphill for eternity. :beatup:

One of said rocks, Ellie-belly-jelly-bean, had her 9-month appointment today - shots and all :cry4: . She is in the 9...

Thank you, my friends - all your sympathy paid off – Ellen slept from (drumroll, please) 10:20 pm to 7:15 am with only 15 seconds of crying in between. This makes me VERY VERY VERY happy, and well rested.

Steve confessed to me the other day that he would love to have a family bed that we could all snuggle and sleep in together but that he was worried it would turn into a bad thing – that the kids wouldn’t sleep through the night and would wander into our room, etc. etc. I thought it was swe...
