6 Little Monkeys Sitting in the Crib

My husband took the side off of one of our vacant cribs so Sarah could have her own bed as we try to get her to sleep through the night dry. The girl is 5 1/2 and has never woken up dry. I'm thinking there is a link between eczema and bladder control. It's a very unscientific theory considering my study only has 4 potty trained subjects. My husband didn't tell me he was going to do that. Now I have to find another spot for my spare blankets.

On the employment front, my husband's temp job ended two weeks ago. We thought it might become permanent but they said, "You finished everything we needed you to do." So, yay! We are on to new and brighter things. It kind of makes you wonder what kind of company still has their employees using 50 lb CRT monitors. If they weren't willing to upgrade computer monitors, it probably wasn't likely there were going to upgrade my husband's pay. My husband had 2 encouraging interviews this week. We hope something might come from them. Let's cross our fingers and say a prayer. Talk about a trial to teach a person/family patience! I think I'm going to be an expert on the subject in not that long.

I wasn't so blah today. Thank goodness!

And now as I was just about to click "Publish Post" my husband brings this downstairs:

One little monkey jumping on the bed, one fell off and bumped his head.

Mama did not call the doctor, but cleaned him up, doused the small wound (it's not as bad as it looks) with alcohol and applied a butterfly bandage. He already has a big scar between his eyes, so not a big deal. It adds character.


  1. poor jason!
    and lana still wears a pull up. she seems to think it has to do with the fact that she still sucks her thumb. i don't know the answers. i just wish i didn't have to buy the pull ups anymore

  2. ouch!! i think walter would have skipped showing me and ran to the hospital. probably a little over reaction, but i tend to under react! i love that he is smiling in the picture!
