I'm stumped. Truly stumped. So much has happened, so much of it ridiculous and comical in a sad and pathetic way, so much of it interesting or possibly thought provoking. So where to begin?

I'm still here. I should reassure you all that. It has been a while and I was in quite a state the last I spoke or wrote.

I'm still pregnant. For better or worse, without the reassurance of a calm and peaceful pregnancy, but still pregnant.

Mom's still crazy. Still able to find new and exciting ways to ruin my holidays.

Kids are still alive, despite their best efforts to sick themselves to death.

And now I have to return upstairs for the 3rd time to smack the child who is actively trying to wake his brother and sister, who are kindly asleep, by banging his water cup on the crib wall. Had I more forethought I would have removed said water cup on my previous visit 5 minutes ago when he was kicking the side of his crib with enthusiasm. 3 hours after bedtime. Little snot.

It's hard when you have a late night owl kid, an early bird kid and a go with the flow kid all in the same room. Not a recipe for anyone to get the sleep they need. A good recipe for me to spend the beginning and end of each night contemplating tying someone down to their crib with some duct tape to the mouth region.

Off I go and I will return tomorrow with a 'real post' I hope.


  1. was wondering about you; at least you still have (some) humor in your posts; so sorry it is still tough going; that would be a nightmare with 3 kids the same age with different time clocks. hang in there (you have no choice of course but to hang in there)


  2. To duct tape: the cause of, and solultion to, all of life's problems.

    Good to have you back.

  3. My girls share a room too and the water-cup-banging-on-the-wall syndrome drives me up a freakin' wall. Especially because I'm somehow the person it always wakes up.

  4. Glad to hear from you again! Hoping for you that it gets better.

  5. Glad to hear you are hanging in there, Mira! Congrats on surviving the holidays with sick kids...not an easy task! Try to rest as much as possible. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help? Need lunch or a decaf latte? I could probably swing it. Hope to see you soon! :)
