I have been in a funk these last few weeks. It all started when we got home from vacation a long time ago. Ella has been off her sleep schedule-the vacation really messed her up. Ella will fall asleep for about 2-3 hours and then wake up for about 2-3 hours. It does not matter when I put her to bed, she follows the same routine. She is up at times from midnight to three in the morning. I need help...anyone have a suggestions out there? I have tried everything...I am out of ideas. I just need to her sleep through the night in her bed.
Madison moved out. Wow is that exhausting-getting a teenager ready for college and to move out. Her excitement is contagious, but underneath I am crumbling. I start crying at the oddest moments-not sure if it is the sleep deprivation or the fact that my oldest is leaving. I am having a hard time letting go-letting go of her childhood...it definitely comes way to fast.
On a lighter note, Ella is loving preschool. Our family is WAY into the Olympics, although, we are always Olympic junkies when they come around every two years. My boys asked if they could start fencing classes...hummm! Boys with fake swords-not sure if it is a good mix.
And the MOST exciting news ever, after TWO LONG YEARS-the braces are coming off my teeth on Monday! Yahoo, Yippe and Jump for Joy. Now, I will post more pictures of myself-I did not like pictures of me with a metal mouth =).
Ella got to finally meet Sammi (in the pink bow)-she was visiting from CA. Her mom is my good friend Jamie, married to Henry who is Chinese. Sammi is a good combination of her parents gene pool-Chinese dad and blonde hair Caucasian mom.
