iPhone pics

Ben was gone this evening, which is unusual thank goodness because that would mean it was just me and the children, and there are so many of them.  I had them all tucked in their beds asleep by 7:30 because I am AWESOME.  I cleaned up dinner quickly and spent a good half an hour mopping the floor in the hallway/kitchen/great room because I put Bio Oil on my feet last night (because they have been totally neglected since I had Cooper, and my massage therapist was horrified by the sand paper state of my heels), and when I went to get Cooper at 2, I left a trail of greasy footprints everywhere. (Cooper, by the way, is not hungry at 2, he just wants to come sleep with me.  And I have to sleep on my side, facing him the whole night.  If I roll over, he rolls too and grabs 2 handfuls of my hair and tried to eat it.)

By 8:30, I was sitting on my bed, checking my email en route to the elliptical.  The next thing I knew, the garage door was opening at 9:30, and I was asleep on my face, which gave me awesome 90's bangs. 

No grading the pile of essays in my bag, no working out, and no blogging.  Luckily (for YOU), I am so jazzed from my nap that I decided to upload some pictures from my phone.  Here they are and now I'm off to enjoy Secrets from the Grave, a simply terrible and therefore wonderful Tami Hoag thriller I cannot put down (book 2 in a 3-book series!).  I loaded my iPad with thrillers-- Patricia Cornwell!  Lisa Gardner!-- in anticipation of the insomnia I always develop at 5 months post partum.  But this time, I can sleep whenever I want to!  And my milk has yet to vanish this month.  Weird, huh?


  1. Aww, love the pictures! I fall asleep involuntarily all the time. I have Lab 1 still in my bag waiting to be graded. I shudder to think about that question on my teaching evaluation!

    Putting all the kids down by yourself is HARD. Gah.
