Hi! In case you’re wondering what happened to this vibrant blog of mine, it’s been hijacked! This wonderful, sweet, calm, sleepy baby Quin wakes up every day at 7pm. You know, when all the other kids are going to sleep and I’m usually writing my blog.
Quin likes to stay up for, oh, I don’t know—four or five hours during this time. She also likes to be held almost exclusively and sometimes gets super fussy and there is no position in which she is not fussy. Eating doesn’t make her happy. NOT eating doesn’t make her happy. Generally, she is a little tiny grump dictator who is kind of killing my blog mojo.
Putting on a uniform, wearing a backpack, and walking away in the parking lot for the first day of Kindergarten without looking back while I cry and drive away in the car. So…my blog might dry up a little. Especially while preschool is taking its hiatus, leaving me with the three younger (and a bit harder) kids at home for the next two weeks.
Quin will probably soon start sleeping during these night hours. She won’t want to be held that much longer. Then she will go to Kindergarten and then college and get married and then one day I’ll be a grandma. So for now, I’m holding a baby not a laptop. More to come. Soon. Promise. But I have to smell this baby before she escapes and grows old.
