She's gotta boogie

The other night, I cut well into Markus-Jennifer time to make our little movie and update the blog, thinking I'd be more likely to get it done then than during the day. So true! That night, Ellie woke up about 100 billion trillion times with (prepare yourself for the horror) THE SNIFFLES. That girl cannot abide a boogie in her nose, and heaven forbid she blow it out! Oh no! So much better to sniffle and snort for hours and intersperse that with tantrum-y wailing all night long. I have long wanted a Simon sign in my kitchen that says, "If Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy"...though I often think the word "Mama" needs to be replaced with "Ellie" for the sake of accuracy. Ah well. That was a no-sleep night for us. Thank goodness baby Stephanie sleeps far away from the commotion, so she actually got a normal night. I had to keep Ellie home from school yesterday so she could rest a bit. Thankfully, she's fully recovered now. Apparently there's a bug going around her class, so it seems we got the most minor of doses. I'm grateful for that!

GREAT writing!!! This made me laugh out loud. All my co-workers are looking at me like I've gone crazy(er).

Thanks for you effort -- Tony and I both really enjoy reading your blog...
