Good night, early morning.

Phew! It has been a busy week and weekend, hence the lack of posts in here. As usual, I am very tired but I am happy to report that Micah slept through last night. If Cody had not barged in our room at 6 a.m. I would be feeling quite well-rested, I suspect. He came in just long enough to let in one of our cats who took it upon herself to be as irritating as possible. When Mike got up to boot her out, she hid under the bed. We were both really mad. Mike finally got her out and then Cody came in again and left the door open a crack...just enough for the other cat to get in. AAHHH! Well, the second time it was Cricket, and even though she sometimes rattles plastic bags and does other annoying things I knew if I just called her she would come and lay on the bed. Sure enough, it did come to that so I called her. Boy was she thrilled. She purred like her life depended on it and she lay right across my chest in pure bliss. She has not been allowed to sleep in our room since Micah was born and she's kind of a baby herself, so she really misses it.

Micah has now spent two nights in his very own bedroom. The first night I was a wreck. I don't know why I reacted so extremely, but I just could not stop crying when I went to bed. I missed seeing his adorable face beside me and watching his eyes slowly close as he drifted off. I know it is for the best because if we wait too much longer to transition him, it will be way more difficult for him which will in turn make it way harder on us. He has a good crib, so he will not be suffering in there. I did not feel as sad last night, though I still did miss him. He is napping in his crib now.

I am just sitting down for a little break this morning as I have been on the go, as usual. I fed all three boys and got the boys' laundry going. Then I folded the diaper laundry and folded all the baby laundry to put it away. I still have one or two baskets of clean laundry that need folding, and at least that many that need washing. Wow. Laundry, laundry, laundry!!! It never seems to even slow down. That's okay. I have to say that laundry is one of the only domestic duties that I am actually good at. Well, relatively good anyway. I don't always fold it immediately, but I am usually pretty good now. I also did a big load of dishes so that's good. I have a ton of stuff left to do, but I just wanted to sit for a few minutes first.

Jamie is walking around wearing Cody's rubber boots, as usual. I just put some clothes on him, but prior to that he was in just a diaper and rubber boots. Silly boy. This morning he crawled onto my bed and peered right into my face and said, "Hi Mom." It was really cute. Yikes! He just climbed onto my lap and combed my hair. Ouch. My hair is in a ponytail, but he managed to remove a good chunk of it. Out of the ponytail, that is, not out of my scalp though I suspect it may have headed in that direction had I not intervened.

I guess I should sign off and continue on my quest to be supermom, or superwife...or superhousekeeper??? I don't know. How about just super. Super anything. I feel like I'm about to fall asleep. I will have to try to get outside today too. I did not yesterday, and I barely did on Saturday so I have slacked off in my decision to get at least a tiny bit of fresh air every day. Today and tomorrow are looking to be the last really warm days of the season so I don't want to miss them. This afternoon when Jamie naps I will go out with Cody, if Micah sleeps too. Time to get back to work.
