I'm sitting here listening to Maylee laugh while Daddy's giving her a bath. There is absolutely no better sound than hearing your child laughing. But I also know that in a few minutes I'll be hearing her crying as she gets her hair washed! She hates it!
I haven't been feeling quite right the last day or so. I've had "sick headaches," you know when you have a headache so bad it makes you nauseous. Yuck. I'm gonna lie on the couch tonight and try to catch up on some TV I have recorded. It seems like I'm never going to catch up. We haven't even started to watch the new season of Lost yet, and it's already like 6 episodes in. I don't know how we're ever going to find time to catch up, but I hope we do. That show is creepy good! We're also a couple weeks behind on House and I haven't watched any of this week's American Idol. If only we didn't have to waste so much of our time sleeping!
I loved hearing the thunderstorm last night, but Maylee was upset cause she couldn't play outside due to the mud. She certainly doesn't care if she gets muddy, but sometimes I just don't feel like messing with a messy girl.
We have a wonderful new bedtime routine. We sit down and read about 4-6 books, then we have singing time! We try to sing pretty mellow songs, but we pretty much sing whatever Maylee wants to sing. We always do the ABCs and Twinkle, Twinkle, and I try to throw in There's a hole in the bottom of the sea. That's a song we used to sing while I was growing up that builds and builds on itself and gets faster. It's fun and I can't wait until Maylee starts trying to sing it herself. We usually end with Rock-a-bye baby, and she sings it to her stuffed bunny. Here's a pic of Maylee in her jammies (before bedtime routine starts, obviously!)
Hope all is well with everyone. Feel free to leave me a comment, I feel all alone and desolate in this blogosphere!
