Sunshine & Fresh Air

2-7-10-small-1


Before kick-off for the big game, we headed out to the Botanical Gardens to get a little sunshine and fresh air. The clouds had parted and it was a beautiful day. Paprika even found some orchids laying on the ground as we entered, and she wanted to share them with Ginger...

We're all still feeling a little sick, but definitely better than a few days ago. It felt good to get outside- we were starting to get a serious case of cabin fever!

I think Ginger is getting some teeth or something because she has gone from sleeping very little to almost not at all! She's sleeping about 4 hours/day (that's including night-time), and she's never asleep longer than 45 minutes at a stretch. It's driving us a little bonkers. I have dusted off the old war-horse, Elizabeth Pantley's No Cry Sleep Solution and will be re-reading it asap. It really helped me with Paprika when she was a baby, so here's hoping...

Of course, Ginger closed her eyes and fell asleep while we were at the Gardens, but that didn't last long. I knew it was rare, so I had to get a picture. ;-) Five minutes later, she was awake and ready to go. Oy vey! We need some rest! Off to watch the big game...Go Colts!

The sleeping part is the hardest part of parenting, isn't it? I hope that it gets better for you!

So sad about the Colts. :( Maybe next year. y67y
