Well, I became a part of the "economically viable" group of people today! In other words, I started my new job today. Ironically enough, I am working in the same field that I was in when we left Daphne, just for a smaller company. If today is going to be any indication of what it's going to be like, I think I am going to like the change of pace. Only time will tell, but I am hoping that it will be a good move in the long run for me.

Tonight's installment personifies Kate's personality; GO BIG OR GO HOME! She has two speeds, stop & go!

Questions for my blog readers: Do any of you out there have a child the just seems to HATE to go to sleep? Addi seems to be that child. No matter if you rock her to sleep, let her stay up till she (or us) is miserable, the second you lay her down, she screams and cries. She only lasts for about 15 or 20 minutes, but it is heartbreaking. Sometimes, in the middle of the night, she will wake up and do the exact same thing. We just let her cry it out because not matter if we soothe her or not, she will end up crying in the end before she passes out. Please tell me if we are crazy or if any of you have a similar experience.


  1. i think letting them cry it out is the absolute best method although it's torture during the time. every child is different and as long as the spells don't last too terribly long i would keep doing what you are doing. one day you won't be able to drag them out of bed (teens), so just know it's temporary. ;)

  2. Does she seem to need less sleep than the others? We only have sleep issues in short phases, and usually nothing major. I have heard of kids that hate to sleep sister used to swear up and down that she HAD NOT been asleep, even if you had been trying to wake her up for thirty minutes! : )
