Outta the Mouths of Babes

Hearing my baby cry does not tug at my heart strings.

No, it annoys the ever loving crap out of me, and I just want it to stop. I find little else as grating as her cries.

Logically, I know she too is frustrated/hurt/in need of something and is doing her best to communicate it with me. Emotionally, I'd rather she keep it to herself until she can use her words or show me what's going on.

And, why, when babies are obviously tired, do they cry about it? Why not just go to sleep, for the love of all that is good in the 'verse?

(This post implies that I have not thoroughly enjoyed my 3 day weekend, but nothing could be farther from the truth; I just haven't enjoyed the last 2 hours of it.)

Testing out mobile blogging on my Droid.

I've missed you, dear blog, but an opportunity to chill in front of the computer for the 20 minutes it takes to draft a post does not seem possible in my near future.  So, I compromise.

Thankful for the Droid's full Qwerty keyboard, but still miss typing with all my fingers. The pic upload is better than full Blogger.

I'm chillin' in the car with the sleeping babies and the dog while Jason and Aunty Ru explore Waitsburg.

Quick Update

For those of you not on Facebook -

things are good; busy and exhausting, but good.  Acclimating to the second kid is going well - we're all doing well with that.  Our visitors have left, and looking forward to Aunty Ru's visit.

I got a full-time job and start tomorrow; Amelia will go with Ags to our beloved day care.

I've written about a bajillion posts in my head but haven't found the time to sit down and write.  Amelia likes to be held, so I hunker down in the living room, far from the key board.  I need to give blogging from my phone a try.

Big hugs to all of you.
