A case of the Mondays, and Jack is 10 Months Old and will soon be driving my car.

He's ginormous. Also uncooperative. Also does not sleep through the night on Sunday nights.

Have to go do puzzles with Harry so he will quit nagging me, but let me just tell you 1. We had a romantic lovely Valentine dinner (with wine flights and rose petals and champagne and delicious courses of deliciousness) and when we got home, Harry woke up and told us that he puked everywhere. Which indeed he had. And he kept puking everywhere all night long. Dreamy. 2. As soon as I wrote Friday's post about how awesome my diss was, I got an email from my advisor that was less than awesome, to say the least. So. Yeah. 3. Jack's nose is a faucet, and someone appears to have smeared something nasty all over my camera's lens that makes this all look like a hazy dream sequence, but I assure it was real.


  1. Oh man. I'm sorry things have taken a turn for the slimy and frustrating! Puking is the WORST! Although snot and its tendency to stick around for months at a time is a close second. Jack is adorable, though! I hope you are able to sneak out for some caffeine and refined sugar sometime today. It'll make all the difference.

    Isn't parenthood fun? Someday you'll look back on all this and still feel naausea...use Woolite rug spray or Resolve...I still remember the "puke" days...Bomma

  3. Oh, poor boys for being sick! This year's viruses seem to be nasty! Hopefully they will get better without sharing with you!

    And ugh on the dissertation! I think this is one of the main reasons I stopped at the masters - I knew I would fail at more research and writing! Hopefully your advisor left comments and suggestions so you can fix it easier!

    "Mommy, there's strings in my bed!"
    Nothing like a good vomit! It is hard to let them do it alone, isn't it? You always somehow feel obligated to join them. Poor Harry!
    Jack is so cute! Congratulations on his 10 month anniversary!
