A much better day – sort of. (Updated with pictures.)

Linlee finally slept through the night again. Hurray! She actually slept in until seven, instead of her normal wake up time of six-thirty. She was her soft, sweet self again. Yesterday she had a weird, frenetic energy that was all about being naughty. It was really unlike her and I felt out of my element …

Pictures from Today

Rob was able to make some room on my computer and for now, my photo applications are working again. Linlee climbing the refrigerator to get the remote… Yeah, I wasn’t kidding, was I? And here she is very mad about being in time-out: But to prove today wasn’t all bad… Tonight ended on a better …

One very naughty little girl…

I don’t even know where to begin. Just last week Rob and I were talking about how Linlee has not had a time-out in months and months. We couldn’t remember the last time. Well, she’s had time-outs the last three days in a row and this morning, she had four before 11:45 AM. It was …

What is the deal with this child?

So I posted earlier today about our difficult night. I thought after screaming from 3:00 AM to 3:30 AM that Linlee would be extra ready for her nap today. Nope. No nap. Not gonna happen. Over the monitor I listened to her running and jumping and playing and squealing in her room and then vocally …

Sugar and spice and everything nice…

Well, mostly. She certainly looks sweet as cotton candy, but you should have heard her last night. Poor thing woke up from a nightmare (I think) and while she can be soothed by being rocked in the rocking chair, once you gently place her back in her bed, she howls the roof off. I’d probably …

Busy Weekend

My parents were here for a quick visit this weekend, but head back home Monday morning. Here is a picture of Linlee and Mémé sharing a laugh… Linlee has a special relationship with her Papa. He is the only one (aside from Rob or me) with whom she warms up to immediately. Apparently they are …

Exploring the Front Yard

Looking for blooms… Here are some “wedduh fwowers” (red flowers)… My little flower… And in case you think she is just too cute, here she is “fake crying” because she didn’t get her way on something. Not so cute…

Hurricane Linlee

Linlee was a pill this morning. This is the child who will not drink anything but milk or water – and apparently mommy’s coffee. She won’t drink juice, or smoothies, or Pediasure, or cocoa, but for some reason, she’s decided that my coffee is acceptable. She even says, “coffee.” This morning she was going for …

Well, darn!

Linlee has been having a hard time with her nap schedule lately. Because she gets home from preschool so late, I put her down at 3:30. I have to wake her up between 5:00 and 5:30 every evening and she is usually in a foul mood. She basically sits sullenly on the couch until seven. …

The Bean Bin and the “Bwoo Coat”

Linlee hasn’t had much interest in the bean bin for a while now, but the past few days she’s wanted to play in it again. Honestly, I haven’t missed finding those beans everywhere! Flopping in backwards… “Hmm, is there a bean stuck in my toes?” Yesterday and today Linlee decided that she only wanted to …
