What I learned in April

We've had a great couple of weeks hosting some folks and enjoying my mom's long visit, but it has meant a lack of blogging!  I've got some thoughts rolling around and thought I'd get out a couple of quick ones before I plunge into the deep and vast pile of papers that is my desk.  Here are some things I've learned over the last couple weeks:

1.  My children love to take out the garbage.  Sydney loves to do anything "by myself" and Savannah loves to do anything that Sydney does - including emptying garbage cans, tying up the bags, and taking them to the cans outside.  Syd especially enjoys hauling the recycle bin from the kitchen because it's "Really Big Mom" (it's also really light).  Apparently the size of the container means that she is strong.  And let's hear it for those tiny boxes I had so that Savannah could also carry something (without sharp points) to the blue bin...

2.  Savannah is a toddler.  She's 18 months old but doing all the toddler things.  This morning's treat?  A rousing game of "Chase the Naked, Wet Baby."  Who needs a towel after bath time anyway?  Even if it does have a cute little froggy hood.

3.  Tired = tired.  It doesn't matter how you slice it, if you've been sleep deprived for years, you can't recoup in a mere 10 days.  Thanks for letting me try, though, mom.

More later...

Tired is tired. Amen, sister. And your girls sound adorable! You might not believe this, but I miss those days of chasing the naked wet baby!

By the way, thanks for your words of encouragement over on my site, even if you did call me old! (ha!)
