My birthday (the 18th) was pretty much my worst ever. I don't want to re-live it by going into details, but it definitely pushed me to do something about our routines, which had been pretty lax most of this year (a troublesome pregnancy and the resulting newborn will do that to you). So we've spent the last week and a half reinforcing boundaries and expectations with Lily and apart from the (now much rarer) 3 year old meltdowns and occasional pant-wetting incidents, life was starting to look a whole lot brighter... until the girls caught a cold that has made them both, especially Violet, miserable, and left me completely exhausted.
So that's where I've been.
I have things to share - some great Lily outfits, photos of our yard (which isn't finished, but already looks a million times better), my craft room organisation, even some crafts. But for now I'm going to concentrate on cuddling my baby and getting as much sleep as possible.
