Who's the boss around here anyway?

It sure isn't me! Some days, no matter how you plan otherwise, the kids really do run the show.

Yep. She already had it figured out this morning. A "be-a-little-stinker-refusing-to-sleep-and-demand-to-be-held-all-day-long-so-there-Mom" kind of day was on tap. As long as she was held, she was as happy as a clam. It's a darn good thing she's so sweet...

My sewing machine did make an appearance at the kitchen table this afternoon but all I was able to get done was some machine quilting on two blankets. This happened during nap attempt #6546237. (trust. I did let her try cry herself to sleep, but seriously, how long can you let a baby cry before you feel like dirt?) I can't complain though because Babes and I got a lot of snuggle time in today. There's something to be said for that!

I also managed to sneak out for a "real" haircut. My first one in over a year. (I've had several others over the past year but they were done somewhere other than a salon.) What a treat! I walked out of there with a cloud of stink around my head that smelled like century old moth balls. Yuck! What do they put in those hair products anyway? Plus I looked like I had aged about 40 years or so with the style job she gave me. Not good. I washed my hair as soon as I got home and all is well.

The teeny-bopper look? You want people to think you're babysitting all those kids?
