Ten on Tuesday

1.  My parents were here today to help me watch my kiddos while I worked.  It's invaluable.  And the kids get extra time with their grandparents.  I love it.  They love it.  I hope my parents love it.

2.  Baby L. is finally starting to take pity on this mama and is now sleeping for longer stretches at night.  Last night, she went from 8pm until 6am.  The night before, it was 8 pm through 7 am.  I am soooo grateful.  Time to let my adrenals heal!

3.  We tried to cancel our cable.  Really, the boys are watching too much television and we were fed up with the stinkin' box on all the time.  Then, the cable company calls and offers us better cable channels and faster Internet for THREE CENTS more than we were originally paying.  So....since I'm a sucker for a bargain, I went for it.  Now we have DVR, and tons of channels.  And BONUS......NOW we can watch the TIGERS!!!  Woohoo!  And they won on opening day.  Happy day for me.

4.  Despite my awesome sleeping-well baby, I could totally use a nap.

5.  A. is in little league baseball and C. has decided he'd like to play soccer again this spring.  I have no idea how we're going to manage those schedules.

6.  It is officially spring time in the Mitten.  Yes, it's still frozen...but my sinuses are officially on revolt.

7.  I had clearly forgotten that spring time is just as busy as Christmas time.  I see the calendar starting to get all jacked-up....and while I know fun will be had, I long for the days of blissful slothful toddler-hood when the only thing we had to leave the house for were grocery stores and trips to grandma and grandpa's house. 

8.  I tried to run the other day on the treadmill.  Clearly...my adrenals and my pelvic bone were NOT ready.  I spent the rest of the week recovering.  Why do I push?

9.  It is freezing in my basement.  Freezing, I tell you.  Frigid  I will be spending the next 5 hours trying to warm up.  And will probably end up still chilled.  Freezing, I tell you!

10.  I am attempting to be the "fun mom" during spring break.  I'm setting up play dates, adventures, and fun activities to do with them.  I'm hoping that this shows up as a "bright spot of childhood" in the midst of their therapy appointments some day.

I SO wish I lived in the Mitten. I want to be real life friends with you. (And yes, I'd rather move to the Mitten than wish Iowa on you. We're trying to get out of here anyway.)
