I apologize

I probably shouldn't have said my kids suck. Talia and Alex, I'm sorry and I love you both dearly. I've felt kinda bad ever since I wrote that. Of course the kids have been great sleepers the last two nights. In bed around 8:30-- they both fell asleep easily (Alex cried a bit both nights and then settled down-- whew!) and slept through the night until after 7am.

Today was Alex's first organized activity-- a music class. He was a really good boy. He sat some of the time, ran around some of the time and interacted well with the other kids and adults. I think he was definitely better than Talia was at her music class. At the same time, I longed for Sally's Music and my good friends there. We had such a nice class with real instruments (not just a CD playing the music), mixed ages (0-6 years old) and a great group of parents-- moms and dads-- that stayed together for about two years. This was just Alex's first class, of course, and all the non first-timers seemed really happy to reunite after the summer break so I'll just have to give it a chance. I can't believe my baby has become such a big boy.

I just found your blog. How funny, I was just thinking the same thing yesterday. I told my husband that I wished we had a second child so at least I'd like one of my children right now. My 19 year old is giving me fits. He's always been a great kid, but some days!!! Anyway, I was wondering if I could borrow your sandhill crane photos for my blog. I've been stalking some near my house in Richland County but I can never quite get close enough to catch one in focus.

Of course you can use my crane photos!

Thanks and P.S. Only male child of 19 is back in my good graces. He called recently to say he and his girlfriend of 4 months were getting married and had set a date. He came to his senses yesterday and realized he was not ready for marriage. Whew.

Don't feel bad, I can't tell you how many times I've thought bad thoughts at bedtime:) Every parent has his/her frustrations. Thanks for the welcome to Madison, I'm loving it so far!
