I think I finally have sleeping time for the girls down to a workable system. It’s not perfect, but it works. Step 1, I can’t go anywhere in the morning. If I do, Gabi will fall asleep in the car and not take a nap in her crib. Step 2, I have to wake Rachel up early from her nap. She sleep so well at nap time, but if she sleeps too long, she won’t go to sleep well at night. So I wake her up by 2:00. It is the hardest thing I do all day. Then I try to wear the girls out in the afternoon. At bed time, around 8:00, we put both girls down, and they both go to sleep just great.
Things have been going pretty well lately. Rachel has started calling me “mama” instead of “mommy.” I love that. It is so sweet.
My garden is growing really well. I’ve decided that beans are the most satisfying plant to grow. I planted them just one week ago, and they are already looking great. I also have tomatoes, onions, carrots, cucumbers and zucchini in my garden.
Thanks to my sister-in-law Trish, I had the chance to see “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown” at the Kentucky Center for the Arts. It was really good. A friend of mine played the role of Lucy Van Pelt. She was great, as was the rest of the cast.
I really need to post some more pictures here. I’ll try to get to that this weekend.
