Warning: You may not want to read this...

Fair warning. I don't get many people reading my blog, so this is a good place to release my horrible, rotten, no good morning to. There may be some scarring emotionally if you read on.
I was awoken from slumber this morning at 4:30 am Not as common any more, but occasionally normal for nursing babe. Yet as I took care of my baby, all my "precious" little ones one by one entered my room, wide awake and with no intentions of going back to bed. Then there was the incident. One which I just finished cleaning up. It is now 8:12AM as I write this! I need to purge to forget!
To give an inkling of what I've just endured, I will try to not give nitty gritty details. But so there is an understanding... If you have ever had to brush consistently at that piece of fecal matter that somehow made it onto the porcelain bowl and doesn't seem to be in any hurry to come off. Now Imagine a child, precious child, confessing that they didn't just get up at 4:30 AM but have actually been up since 3:00 AM and had indescribable bathroom issues. Oh, and not in ONE bathroom, but TWO bathrooms. If ever you have seen the movie Daddy Day Care, I now REALLY know how he feels and NO it's not funny any more!!! I had intended on cleaning my bathrooms today, but I did not think I'd be cleaning THAT. Someone somewhere must not have believed my thoughts on "I will clean my bathrooms today" or they just thought it would be funny. PfThthhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, to them! Now sadly I cringe when anyone goes into the bathroom now. I don't think I can take much more today. Stupid fog.

new pics


crafting, making cookies, back to church, new glasses and happy swinging baby... not necessarily in that order, but here are some of the most recent things.

I've been working on my new business Darling Stitch e-mail at website at blog site for pics and info at or purchase items online at it takes a lot of time, so not everything is to where I would like.

I let Lindsay and Jack paint with good acrylic paints on pressed board, I will have to post those pics too, just thought of it.

Duncan was allowed to pick his own glasses, with some trepidation from his parentals. But Jack purposely lost his pair and broke his back ups because Mom picked them out. We couldn't afford to go through that with Duncan, so that is his "style". They remind me of a modern horned rimmed they've got a good inch thick side. He won't let me cut his hair either, I'll probably win that fight when summer hits.

Ruby has been cute as ever all smiles and loves to play with toys. She is aiming high and trying hard to sit up from a lying down position. We call them mini crunches. She is strong.

tired patience

I get the opportunity to have my patience tested over and over. I'm sure it's because I mastered with ease patience when I was younger. Now that my patience is running thin I must try to master it yet again. Or maybe it's just that I seemed to be patient, because when I was younger I was never truely tested. Either way. I gave in and named my new business. I had intended on gathering opinions and deciding at length after a poll or something. The name is "Darling Stitch" I've reserved the site, we own it but don't expect anything great, yet. We have plenty of work to get it to look like we want. Not to mention correct. We had the name idea for Craft Darling, but that's been taken. So ignore references to it if you see that. I have to change a lot. I'm sure I will post again to let everyone know to go see it for sure. I'll be listing and selling items on etsy. I'm not there yet, but go check it out any way, it's a fun site. It's like a ebay for crafters.
