but he has been sleeping every night until at 4 or 5 am and then goes back to bed after a bottle. (why, oh why do i put this in print... have i jinxed myself?) this is reason enough to celebrate.
and earlier this week, i had the GLORIOUS joy of not one, but 2 nights out with dear, dear friends. i love these nights for 2 reasons. i love my friends. and then i love my kids more. we all just need a little break now and again.
i never have to worry when the kids are with daddy. he is just one big bundle of love and fun.
...and then this conversation happened with ella:
"oh mommy, i have to tell you the funniest thing." pauses to giggle and then contain herself. "last night we saw this guy with a hammer and nails," and then her face got all contorted and violent and very expressive, "and he put a nail in his nose and then hammered it in!" and then her and bennett burst into laughter.
umm... ok. what?
