Sunshine & Fresh Air


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!

Glad everyone is feeling a little better and I hope that trend continues.

Sorry about your 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
