On Why I Drink Wine

March 30 009So the bigger of my two little men woke up at 3am and 4am this morning and snuck out of bed (not realizing I have a monitor in his room about 2 inches from my ear) and went out into the playroom to play with his new Thomas Train Track.

Oye. All this after a very interesting nite nite adventure. Dan's brother and his girlfriend were over for dinner (Steak and Salmon, yum yum!!) so Gabriel was especially wound up. He cried and cried when I put him to bed. Finally Dan came up and read to him and he settled down to sleep - or so we thought.

Next it was Maddox's turn and he was also reluctant. I came downstairs twice only to have to run right back up and rock him, replace his paci, etc etc etc. The third time I came up the stairs I nearly tripped over Gabriel who was making his way to the gate at the top of the stair. I was already irritated and tired so I snapped at him to go back to bed thinking he was just being naughty. Poor little guy just started sobbing as he headed back to his room. When I caught up to him I realized what the problem was - he was wet even though I had just checked him and changed him before bed! So we changed his PJ's another new diaper at which point I realize that Gabriel had tried to take his own diaper off - before going potty (meanwhile Maddox is still screaming). Turns out Gabriel's bed is drenched as well.

Long story short, we eventually got them all clean, dry, and asleep and I poured myself a nice big glass of wine (Duh!). Then of course we had the 3 and 4am jaunts out to play with Thomas.

Last night I finished all of the last details on the aprons I was making and started cutting the pieces for the Manhattan Handbag (by Nancy Green) that I was going to make. I was hoping to get a lot more done, but I realized I was totally out of fusible fleece and the a few other necessities for the pattern. I went out this morning to get what I needed and came home with pretty much the wrong EVERYthing. Argh!! Oh well.

Here's where I'm at so far with the purse. I also got some fun fabric for little baby kimono PJ's. One in a red and green lady bug print with plain black lining, and the other is blue with flowers and butterflies and yellow lining. I hope they turn out!

Here are a few pictures of Dan and Gabriel from the Day out with Thomas (and one of Maddox just because):
