this week

  • I got mastitis for the first - and hopefully last - time.
  • Tyler had one of the worst days of his life, that ended with lots of thorns in his hands and elbows.
  • Emma compared me to a pig and how they feed their babies.
  • Emma left me a note (notes are a nightly occurrence) saying when she's a mom she isn't going to yell at her kids (wanna bet?). Ouch.
  • Some of our good friends moved away.
  • I tried to let Tanner cry it out, but after 75 minutes couldn't take it anymore. It put me in a bad mood and I felt awful the rest of the day. His will is stronger than mine.
  • Spencer was gone for two days and by the time he got home I had never been happier to see him.
  • So...Spencer took the big kids to work with him yesterday (Saturday).
  • Tanner started interacting/playing with me. He's lucky, because that's the ONLY thing that saved him this week.
Saying I'm glad it's over would be an understatement.

Funny. To me. "Swiftly fly the years . . . ".
(and besides, Tanner obviously takes after his mother. Pay back.)

I love that your normal, Cheri, and so is your blog.

Feel free to send any of them my way, especially the little one. :)

Who moved away? What a bummer week. This one will be better!

Mastitis?! Ouch! Man, what a bummer of a week! It's weeks like those that I actually look forward to Monday. Hope you have a great new week starting today! We're thinking of you.

Mastitis... yup, that brought back some memories! (Thank you Luke and Michael). I love you Cheri! This will pass. One day they will be teenagers who will tell you that you are the worst mother, ever, when you ground them for breaking curfew. Parenthood isn't for the faint hearted.

I hope you feel better this week!
