What Will Jordana Break Next?

This blog is a hobby and when life gets busy, it falls by the wayside. I wish I could tell you all about the wonderful baking, creating and all I've been doing, but I haven't. Mostly I have been just barely keeping up and prying my eyes open, since the almost five month old has decided he rarely wants to sleep at night and when he does sleep it is only held by and attached to me. I don't get my best sleep that way.

Perhaps it is the lack of sleep that is causing a rash of breakages around here. It all began with my Panasonic Lumix, which I dropped lens down onto a tile floor. It has since failed to work. Then my almost brand new iPod Touch decided one morning to give me the white screen of death and turn super hot in one corner. Nothing I've done seems to have any effect and guess who lost the receipt? Guess who was keeping her Christmas shopping list on it? D'oh!

So I'm sleepy and breaking things. I hope nothing else crashes, smashes or starts pining for the fjords, but while I wait to see if everything else keeps working for a while, I have a shopping list to rewrite or the kids will be getting leftover Halloween candy for Christmas.

Eeck - I do the same thing when short on sleep - can't hang on to anything. Praying the little guy decides to assert his independence from being held and that he discovers the joy of sleep!

Recreating lists is no fun. But leftover candy would be rather odd for Christmas gifts, unless you change the wrapping?

Diane, I might have been exaggerating slightly -- though Halloween candy has been known to appear in Christmas stockings. I have a few books (because we don't have enough around here!) for the kids, and I don't have plans to buy them huge amounts of stuff, but there are a few things I would like to get for them.

Oh I feel your pain! I have a new six month old (this week) and I think I was nodding off at Mass today. I had to pinch myself while getting my teeth cleaned so as to not accidentally close my mouth on the instruments! Be of good cheer....this waiting is nearly over and our Baby Lord Jesus will come!

Oh man. Sorry to hear all of it. I hope the little one starts to embrace sleep soon.

Molly (13 months) still sleeps with us which I never allowed with the first two. Then again, those first two would keep me up, but Molly knows how to snuggle up so perfectly that it's bliss. The downside is that the older girls caught on and we frequently wake up with Molly in between us, Annie laying on the edge of the bed, and Jane at the foot of the bed. It's getting a little crowded. :)

Here' to good sleep for you, Jordana! Good luck with the Christmas shopping.

Oh no! Pottery Barn Kids has free shipping today if you can find anything from the list online. In fact, if you'd like to drop the kids here one morning next week in order to shop Target alone, we'd love to have them!

I don't know how you do it, Jordana. I hope you are able to sleep soon.
