Bad Night

3 1/2 hours....3 1/2 hours of sleep... thats it no more no less. I am work, can barely focus. Just really want to cry. No longer can I use all parts of speech.

I have a big tour to give today to about 25 perspective parents. Should be good in my current state. Wonder what I will say or if I will be able to stay awake for it.

The Exorcist Part 2

Linda Blair has struck again. S covered me again from head to toe with the green ooze. She has also started making this rather disturbing noise on a regular basis.
videoVery cute but maybe a little scary.

Tonight hubby is going to a movie premiere and will not be home until 3 or 4 am. I am petrified. No sleep breaks for me. Just 24 hours of kids. I really admire single mothers who do it alone all the time. I find the whole on my own thing really daunting and overwhelming. Wish me luck.

Why post this picture?


1. To demonstrate that it easier to bath both of them at the same time then to do it separately

2. Because it is a disgustingly cute photo. Really really cute and great!

3. B is a nut and this picture proves it

4. This photo will make the kids cringe in the future and that is always fun

5. It makes evenings seem like a serene time great for bonding.

6. You cannot see the pudding that was smeared on the walls earlier in the evening (thus the bath)

7. You cannot see the temper tantrum that occurred when the Wonder Pets were turned off for the bath

8. No one is poking and throwing wash clothes at the baby

9. You cannot see me guzzling my wine

10. All of the above.

Linda Blair Strikes Again

I was very worried about this morning. I was opening the school and the two teachers who usually open with me were absent. As it is always a little bit of crap shoot when we make it out of the house with my two monsters I was worried.

The morning started off great. S got up to nurse at 6am just when I was done my shower. I woke B up when she was done he had breakfast and all looked good. In fact it was a picture perfect morning. I put on Ben's coat at 7am and put S in the carrier and we were just about out the door 5min early when... huge amounts of green bile can flowing out of S's mouth. It was just like the exorcist. I expected her head to start turning around and doing a 360. In horror I began to yell. B ran to get Daddy as the dog began licking the vomit of the floor. Daddy who was majorly grossed out ran to help and finally the flow stopped .

I was relieved but I had to go slime or no slime I had to get to school or all of those poor little kids would be left in the cold. I ran through the cold dripping in the green sludge until I made it to work cold, sick and very very smelly. S on the other had was as happy as could be and there was no sign of the evil vomitous presence that had once taken over her very cute little body. Thank goodness for the work washer a necessity in child care.


On a totally different note I had a terrible nightmare last night and the star of my dream was Parker Stevenson from the Hardy Boys. It had to do with a house and some ghosts and fire. I woke up shaking and actually clung to he poor dog for comfort. You gotta love Mondays.

Sleepy and Fat

I wonder how long a person can go without more than two hours of consecutive sleep? I am sure I've asked this question before. I have found that I am not loosing any weight regardless of how well I am eating or working out. Troubled by this discovery I turned to the internet where I found the results of a horrible new study:

"We've known for some time that sleep deprivation is associated with weight gain and obesity in the general population, but this study shows that getting enough sleep, even just two hours more, may be as important as a healthy diet and exercise for new mothers to return to their pre-pregnancy weight," said Erica P. Gunderson, PhD, an investigator at the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland and the lead author of the study.


WHAT THE??????? What the hell???? Are they kidding me? Well, how is that supposed to happen? I would love more sleep. I pray for more sleep. So as we are all supposed to be thin and well rested. You may ask yourself, "How can a mother with a new baby get enough sleep to be a fashion model?" Lets ask the experts


"With the results of this study, new mothers must be wondering, 'How can I get more sleep for both me and my baby?' Our team is working on new studies to answer this important question," said Matthew W. Gillman, MD, SM, Department of Ambulatory Care and Prevention, Harvard Medical School/Harvard Pilgrim Health Care.


Oh well that solves it thanks Dr. Gillman MD!


I don't think I am alone in thinking this study is just a new way to taunt new mommies and make us feel bad. I am obviously not having enough sleep to fit into any halter tops or mini skirts come spring. I am so sleep deprived I have walked into walls and I even stepped out of the shower this morning to discover the shower door was still closed. Ouch! I am bruised, tired and sadly still fat. Since I will not be able to shop at any store that doesn't carry a 14 or higher I say to hell with it. It's pizza time!


By the way I am so happy with all my comments! I feel so popular. Its like the high school experience I never had. Thanks to you all!

Where Have All the Comments Gone?

Hmmmmm.... No comments yet. Maybe I was to quick to change sites.

Anyway if anyone new stumbles upon this site and wants to get a sense of what I'm all about check out my old site at http://journals.aol.com/smwed2000/up-the-hill-backwards/Link

Welcome to My New Blog Space

Ok Its was totally that old blog sites fault. I totally wont remember him. So there.

No seriously I decided to start a new blog space because I've had many emails complaining about trouble posting comments on the aol site . I actually stayed up all night not only because of the kids but because it strangely felt like a hard decision to change blog carriers. but I have done it and now I just hope I remember my password and where this blog is so I can keep updating it. But welcome to my new site.

Here is a completely gratuitous picture of B wearing his baby doll in a pretend baby carrier.

By the way all you people who complained you could never post comments have some work to do now.
