Point Mallard and Other Randomness

-I took the kids to Point Mallard, a local waterpark, this week. We weren't really able to take a vacation this summer, so I wanted to do something special before they went back to school. We had SO much fun!

-Ben is in town for a few weeks. I love spending time with him.

-Sean has been working A LOT lately. Sometimes I feel like a single mom, and lets just say I stink at solo-parenting. I don't have enough time, energy, or hands to cope on my own.

-Mikey got his release date! He'll head home on December 24th. YAY!!! He'll miss Maddi's first birthday. Booo!

-Maddi has a tooth coming in. She also said Drew and Boo Boo (Uncle Ben) this week. Still no Mama though.

- My back is KILLING me. If I could go back, I wouldn't have gotten an epidural. I know, crazy concept, but looking back, I would rather have suffered through two excruciating, raw pushes than deal with never ending aching.

-Drew lost his other front tooth in the middle of the night last night. I had just BaReLy drifted off to sleep when I heard someone whisper "Mama." I opened my eyes to see Drew standing beside my bed with blood smeared all over his face and arm. I flew out of bed and began feeling every inch of his little body to find out where the blood was coming from. Drew just looked up at me and smiled and held out his hand to show me his ity bity little tooth. I guess in all of his tossing and turning during the night, he managed to smear the blood all over his body. I'm just glad he's not snaggle-toothed any more.

- I think Maddi still wakes up 4 times during the night because of my inconsistency. We have an amazing schedule in the morning, but then the evenings are complete chaos. I'm hauling them to work at weird hours, feeding them junk when I have a few spare minutes, and then trying to put them to bed at odd times. Now that school is starting tomorrow, I've got to come up with a better plan.
-Dan Brown's new book comes out in October!!! This makes me VERY happy.
- I really want to learn how to sew. I have a million different ideas of cute little dresses that I want to create. I just don't know where to begin. Maybe step #1 should be buying a power cord for my sewing machine. :)
ok... I think that's the end of my randomness and definetly the end to our chaotic summer fun.

I can't believe Michael will be coming home already. Time really does fly by. Love the cutie-pie tummy too!

That really sucks about your epidural!!! Did you have one with Drew? Talk to Sis. Thompson... she had similar issues with one.
