Our weekend started out on a low note. Miss Eloise woke up vomiting at 3:30 am early Saturday morning. Being that this isn't what I deal with, Matt stepped in and took care of her while I snoozed on the couch the rest of the night. Interestingly, she bounded out of the bedroom at 9:30 completely normal acting. I am not convinced it was a bug, but I'm not sure what else it could have been. No one else picked up what she had, thank goodness, but it left me on edge the whole weekend. Waiting for the other shoe to drop, so to speak.

I went for a nice walk around Greenlake with a friend yesterday. It felt good to get some exercise and be out on my own for a little bit. Matt's sister came by after I got home and I taught her how to fold origami cranes. I am very excited at the thought of getting some help with my over-zealous project of folding 1,000 cranes for the wedding! Today I slept in very late and did some grocery shopping with Iris. Unfortunately I set a precedent with Iris that she gets some sort of treat every time we leave the house. I am truly an idiot in this regard. I love, love, love giving the girls treats, but of course if backfires when the whining and pleading and crying begins and then you find yourself giving in to the requests just to get some peace and quiet, but really I'm fueling the problem. So although Iris is a joy to shop with in every other regard, she is a terrible beggar for treats, thanks to me.

This week is Spring Break, though since Iris only goes to school two days a week anyways, it isn't too much different than a normal week for us. Hopefully we'll have some playdates as Iris is constantly asking to see friends lately. I'm so terrible at setting these things up, as you may recall from previous posts I've made on the subject, so we'll see how it goes.


  1. hey, if you mail us some paper, melanie and i can fold some cranes for you - just make sure to include an instruction sheet! (we will practice on throwaway paper before starting on yours.)

  2. That is a really sweet offer! I will consider it!
