blah, blah, bio ...

We are "natural parenting" a precocious
eight year old, Adeline Brett, her three year old sis, Eliza June and their wild baby brother, Silas Augusten.

Homeschooling ...

Enduring lots of craziness ...

I am living with the life altering, disabling chronic illness
(postural orthostatic tachycardia - POTS) as a stay at
home mommy, wife & small business owner.

But most of all, we are thanking our lucky stars
that we are reveling in lots and lots of love and happiness.

{ sleep is disgusting?! }

Posted on August 30, 2011

I hate that I haven’t had time to write anything here in so long … or time to, well, do anything really! It’s been so crazy busy lately. The night before last I actually stayed up ALL night working. Not a single minute of sleep. What was I doing? Working. Working all night so I don’t miss out on time with my precious girls during the days. But the ironic thing is in doing this I end up a useless mess the next day AND I’m so wasted and exhausted by the next night that I don’t get any work done at all because my body just shuts down and forces me to give it some sleep. Oh, if only sleep weren’t so necessary, I could get so much more done. I swear sometimes I feel like my five year old, Adeline, when she whines before bed about how much she hates sleep. She does not hear this from me, mind you – I keep my dislike of needing sleep secret. She just has the usual five year old dislike of having to stop all the fun things for a break. She has actually yelled, “I hate sleep … sleep is disgusting and a waste of time!!” LOL!

Here is a little something until I have a moment to write a proper post (and, yes, Eliza’s birthday photos are just about done being processed – only a month late, lol). These are a few shots from the recent Big Bad Voodoo daddy concert we took the girls to. We love listening to them around the house. What is particularly amusing is watching Adeline’s sheer horror when we force her to watch us swing dance. She just doesn’t understand how very cool we were in the 90′s when swing dancing was such a hot trend – now we are just plain embarrassing. ;)

And here is a one that showcases just how nuts I apparently look when in the moment with my girls. I seriously don’t give a hoot what anyone thinks of me if whatever I’m doing is amusing the girls. They love it and they love me – and that’s all that matters. Upon questioning, Scott affirmed that my face pretty much looks this crazy ALL the time. ;) { baby headphones to protect tender baby ears }


OMG!!! It’s Big Bad Voodoo!!

Oh, and for the record, if time weren’t something I’m severely lacking in, I would LOVE to just sleep all the time!! It just happens to be the *need* for sleep that totally puts a kink in my plans to get anything accomplished! LOL!
