Good News Nap times are starting to become lovely again. Kyra doesn't always nap, only about half the time. But thanks to advice of Jennifer's, I've let her play quietly in her bed. She doesn't have to sit there in silence, hoping maybe she'll bore herself to sleep because, well, that just wasn't working one bit. What she does have to do is stay in bed and play quietly with the 30 or so stuffed animals she thinks she must sleep with (yes, total exaggeration). Some days she falls asleep, others she entertains herself for 2 hours while I can still read my books. We're both much happier. It's quite nice.
Good News I bought 2 new bra's while on va-cay in the the Bible Belt. Lately I've been noticing how loose they've gotten. I popped into the local Victoria's Secret, tried on a few more... I've lost some inches around my chest! (not to confuse this with my "chest" chest, but my chest. You know, where the band lies.) Could this mean my mornings at the gym are paying off?
Good News Kyra is no longer screaming bloody murder as we pull into the gym parking lot. She occasionally states "No, mommy" but that's it. That's the end of her protest. I've come to realize that if she can carry her Baby (or Bear or Otter) in with her she is one happy camper. The nursery people tell me she never lets go of her death grip, but she's happy and that's all that matters.
Good News Jer and I are buying a spanking new car when he comes home. I've got a healthy lump of cash in savings (that was going to be spent on college- screw them anyway) that we've decided would be quite a nice down payment on a second vehicle. Any suggestions?
Good News I found one bottle of Tylenol high on a top shelf, in a closet, far out of Kyra's reach. The second bottle is still MIA. At least now I know I'm not completely incompetent with this child raising business. Also, thanks Jennifer for your encouraging comment. Your right, children are resourceful and will find their own trouble. Kyra's not any different, no matter how hard I try to keep trouble out of her tiny little hands.
Good News Kyra is defiantly one of the cutest children to ever grace this world and she's mine, all mine!
