…from yesterday’s Post of Doom and Gloom.

Item one: Rosie never slept, so essentially we swapped out two hours of silent restorative slumber for the same amount of stressful, deafening misery. Fantastic! (Emphasis on MY SARCASTIC TONE.)

Item two: Living room—PAINTED. (Completely and entirely by L. Excluding the great painter’s tape Peel Off and Giant Tape Ball construction by Noah. Impressive, both.)

Item three: Yeah, see item two. Our house is a disaster. But at least I’m not cooking the turkey! Many family members just breathed a sigh of relief.

Item four: You know what? I’m tentatively (naively?) hopeful. Even though she got out of bed approximately 45 seconds after we said goodnight, and then 26 times after that, there was no screaming. None. I’ll take it.

Item five: Additional business. Did you ever happen to run across the Nike ad with Tiger Woods’s slow motion swing set to cello music? If not, you should take a second to check it out. (It’s short.) Because…

A beautiful swing from racher on Vimeo.

It’s nice to know that despite the new job and toddler taming, my love for iMovie has not waned.

Ben stopped taking naps when he was two. He would, however, go to his room to “rest” for an hour each afternoon. Resting entailed reading books and playing quietly with his toys. We would set the timer so he would know when rest time was over. Maybe this would work for Rosie.

Nathan and Noah have the same comforter cover. I strongly suspect that this is due to the correlated awesomeness of their moms.
