Bermuda Triangle

The deadly three corners defining my week's boundaries so far: (1) Two year old with extremely drippy, snotty cold, (2) Husband with extra-schmoozeriffic work obligations, such that he has to be there early this week rather than stay home long enough for me to get a shower in peace in the a.m. (3) Computer out of commission due to massive and very sad loss of data and efforts to recover it (more on that later).

But! Today Iris put up with the Baby Bjorn for the first time ever—a relief for me as well as for Ingrid, who appreciates my ability to meet her many needs two-armed. Also, Iris slept for 3.5 hours in a row last night. This left me so well rested that I was able to spend the hour between 2 and 3 a.m. pondering all the bisphenol-A I must have ingested during each of my pregnancies. I think some of that chunk of sleep helped my patience level today, though.

So, could be worse. Must relinquish laptop for recovery efforts. More later.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my site, it always amazes me how many things I seem to have in common with people who find their way to it.

    I love your daughter's names - congratulations on Iris! I had my girls two years and 3 months apart and they are fabulous companions for each other these days (almost 4 and 6 years old). I recall the general fog of having a newborn at the same time as the tantrums of a two year old...good luck and I hope you do get that occasional glass (bottle) of wine that you deserve.

  2. Ugh, bisphenol-A. I try not to think about it. My baby gets a lot.

    Sorry about the cold! And the absentee husband! And that computer thing sounds potentially quite awful.

    Everyone is better on more sleep.

    Glad she likes the Bjorn now. That was a fun time.

  3. Oh, I am so sorry, that sounds miserable. We've had our own special mix of the same here lately, and I can't even blog about it - I just want these last few weeks to go away and for some easier days to come my way. I hope Ingrid is at least napping well with that cold! We're open Thursday afternoon if you are, BTW.
