My sweet little narcoleptic daughter

Where did I get this crazy little girl?

Nora has developed Narcolepcy in the last few weeks. When asked to do anything, good or bad, fun or not and she feels like it might not be something she wants to do...WHAM!  She is asleep. Today when I asked her to have a bite of her dinner, out like a light!  She will fall instantly to the ground, or do what we call the "no bones" if you are holding her.And not only does she fall instantly asleep, she fake snores too.

I know what you are thinking, how could such a spirited and colourful character like this little girl come from such a quiet and passive woman like me...I know right? I ask myself the same thing all the time? She gets it from her father;)


Today was a hard day, 

This morning I found out my friends are going to get a divorce. I am very sad because children are involved. For this one I feel no gratitude, but I pray they will find peace soon.

This morning Drew's boss received the horrible news that his son had gone missing. He had gone out with a friend into the back country to go fishing and was not heard from since last night. So Drew had the daunting task of going out with the father (his boss) to look (along with police) to try and find this boy.
I am grateful the child and his friend were both found well and safe. I felt sick all day, and all I could do was pray.

I am grateful my friend is getting answers concerning her child's health situation. Not all the news has been ideal, but knowing where to go is better then nothing.

Shamefully, I am grateful for Edo Japan again today....I know I know


Fast food

Yesterday I had to take Seth to see our pediatrician, it was an appointment later in the afternoon so we left late and I had not prepared anything for dinner.

I hate feeling rushed for food, because 100% of the time I will pick up something fast which is less then ideal for human consumption. Most fast food I would not feed to a pet I was trying to kill off, let alone my beautiful children.But every once in a while I cave and surrender to their wines and begging.

Tonight was one of those nights.

So I thought I would pick something up that seemed a little better. I went to Safeway (which in our family is a sin  punishable by death because Steve my dad is the manager of Co-op)

I let the children pick what they wanted and fried chicken, french fries and sushi made it into our cart.

While we were finishing up, and going down the last isle I ran into a woman I met years ago in the emergency room of our town hospital.
I was in with an injured child(shocking I know) and she was in with a breast infection.She had just had a baby and was struggling with breastfeeding. We began chatting and had lots in common. We have been chatting on and off for 7 years now. Never on the phone or play dates with kids, we just seem to bump into each other here and there. 

It makes me feel good. 

Unlike the fried chicken, French fries and sushi. I do not feel good today about that. Or maybe its because I did not get to be until 3 am because I drove my friend home last night after she came over to visit me. 

Today will be rough.

I am grateful for our pediatrician he is an amazing doctor, and I feel my children are well cared for.

I am grateful for fresh starts

I am grateful School is almost here, my babies are getting really excited for the new year.
