Sweet Princess H

I very rarely get the chance to do anything alone with just one of the kids. When I do, it is usually with Super Z. He is the one that is old enough to WANT to do everything all of the time. Well Saturday, I got to spend some time with just the girl, and I have got to say it was amazing.
First of all, all kids ( who have siblings) seem to behave better when they are alone. It is the novelty of getting ALL of the attention, I think. Plus, there is no one to fight with. But she is just so nice and calm. Super Z (who was an only child until he was 3, so has had way more one on one time ) has never been calm in his life. Princess H sat happily in the stroller, ate neatly in her high chair, and hummed as she was pushed along in a buggy. All of this, even while she was missing her nap time. She is just so freaking nice to go out with. Plus she has the cutest smile. I look forward to many more shopping trips with my daughter in the years to come, may they all be so enjoyable.

The Week From Hell

Short work weeks have a way of fooling you. Especially around here. First gut reaction is, "Yay! We are off Monday! Woot! We only have to work four days." And then Monday slips past and you are faced with the grim reality that you actually still have to do five days worth of work, you now just have one less day to do it in. And then your reaction is, "Oh my God, how in the hell am I supposed to get all of this done!!! There aren't enough hours in the day!!"
So here again we see the grim truth of life, there can be no light without darkness, and no holidays with out stressed out days of playing catch up.
