Blue Blue Monday

July 18, 2011

Last night was rough.  Creamie woke up a million times, ended up in our bed, and was so restless that we both ended up out of our bed.  I slept in her bed and Scott had the couch.  And when she realized she was all alone in our room she freaked out.  And this morning we had a serious talk about where she can sleep when she gets sad in the night and we made her a little bed on my floor.  Needless to say, it was not an awesome morning.

Well, she thought it was fine.  She picked her favorite cereal for  breakfast, and two half finished cups of milk from the fridge and airheads she found in my purse last night.  And I let her have them.  I’m an awesome mom like that.  After she was done I noticed that everything was blue…. so not planned.

But as she was enjoying her candy I was catching up on blogs and read that Sandi Henderson is rereleasing her gorgeous Henna Garden prints.  In their own collection this fall.  All Henna Garden!  It’s amazing, and it brightened up my whole day.  You can vote on her blog for your favorite colors to come back and make any suggestions of new combos you’d like to see.

Pretty fabric and gross blue candy is just what we needed over here to perk this Monday right on up.

    I remember those days well (actually I remember very little, but i know they happened). Hope Creamie will make it through the night tonight. Our daughter wanted to be in our bed for ages. She’s literally wrap herself around my husband’s head and I’d end up with her feet in my ears. We ended up finding a very special, realistic dog stuffie to be her nighttime watch dog. “Bob” protected her and it was the ticket to staying in her own bed – we let her know there wasn’t room for a daughter and a dog in our bed, so she opted to keep Bob company. Yippee!

    Those were the days. When my daughter was little, we didn’t have a footboard (I guess that’s what you call it – its the opposite of the headboard, oh well) on the bed. She would go to the foot of the bed, crawl up between us and underneath the covers, we’d never notice until the next morning when there would be this little person between us. Our son, on the other hand, came along after we bought a different bed. He would come in the middle of the night and stand on my side staring at me until I opened my eyes. I would sit up, he would crawl in the bed between us, and in one smooth motion, my husband would get up and carry him back to bed! We would go through that at least 3 times a night. It would make us crazy.
    Hope you have a good rest-of-the-week!

    Oh how I hate those kinds of nights. Sorry. 😦

    But hey, that is some very bright news for you with the Sandi Henderson line. So pretty, I love the melon and the raspberry!
