Valentine Pictures and Chinese Mothers






Have you read this article about Chinese mothers? I would write more but I have to go turn off the wii and make Peter practice the piano for 4 hours!

1. Just for the record this is what Peter's bed usually looks like when it is not being used as a bunk bed.
2. My sewing machine has been broken since early October, and not just a little broken, but like dead. The last time I got in the car to get a new one the universe struck me down in a very unfortunate and expensive way. So, I have been doing a lot of hand sewing, and crocheting. I just finished this for Abby's upcoming birthday. Not sure how I feel about the flowers, any thoughts?

Crawl baby, and other news

Kate is now a crawl baby, and has been since Christmas day.


Peter and Abby enjoy sleeping anywhere except in thier beds. This began with me letting them Abby sleep in the bathtub when she experienced GI unrest in the night. I put pillows and blankets in with her. They took up occupancy in this box for about a week...
Then after much pleading, they gave up hope of having bunk beds, and created thier own.
I think they really just miss sharing a bedroom, so they come up with ways to sleep in the same place again.

I may regret posting this. I have been expecting a social worker to knock on my door anyday, and say, "we have had several reports from people at the bus stop that your baby is "FREEZING" and that on occasion, you let the sun get in her eyes."
