Sleep...


*Yawn*

Sleep deprivation...it's the first (and most persistent) malady of motherhood. It makes you crabby, it makes you fat, it makes you sick.

Yesterday, I was functioning on approximately 2ish hours of sleep, with some fragmented sleep here and there after that. I was full on lacking any sort of coping skills, and so, I put myself to bed early.

Only, the Mr. was working late, so that meant I was still at the justice of my children. My children whom seem to be Energizer Bunnies and just keep going and going and going. On our way home from the Pal's baseball game, Baby Girl fell asleep. It was bedtime anyway, so I thought "BONUS!! No Baby to put to sleep, just the big kids!"

Wrong.

Oh, so wrong.

She woke up when I was changing her...and what happens when a 3 year old gets a cat nap? Can you say "Hello second wind!!!"

Ugh. There is not enough caffeine in the world to help with this sort of fatigue.

Sleep deprivation. It may look like I'm awake, but I'm not...so, please don't ask me to solve the world's problems...on a good day, maybe...but not today.

  1. Cat naps are the worst! If I see my daughter falling asleep in the car when we're close to home I will do everything in my power to keep her awake because if she even sleeps for 5 minutes it's all downhill! Why don't cat naps work like that for me?

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
