I'm BACK!!!

Hi Y'all! I can't even begin to tell you how I've missed you!! At the end of everyday it feels like I've forgotten something and I can't quite figure out what it is. And then it dawns on me...I haven't created something today!! AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGH!!!


The one thing that I've always felt that I've done right in this parenting adventure (so far) is that I have ALWAYS kept a ridiculously rigid sleep schedule with my children. It just always felt like the right thing to do and for me, it worked. However, I've had a hell of a time lately with some sleep issues involving my oldest. She's slept solidly through the night since she was 4 months old...she's now almost 3 and for just about a month now has been giving us the *business* regarding bedtime. We've got it back under control now and I won't bore you with the details but lets just say...I'm now back to getting enough sleep so that I have some semblance of creativity left at the end of the day and a teensy bit more time to get something done in the evenings now. Phew...that was an exhausting episode.

So here's what I got for ya...
