the bad: mae woke up soaking wet from a leaky nappy at 4am and couldn't get back to sleep after changing so we hung out in the lounge room until 5:30am.
the good: she then slept until 8:15am and wanted to have an hour and forty five minute nap at 10:15 to noon.
the bad: i think all the sleeping is symptomatic of yet another illness or the four molars that are pushing themselves through her gums all at once. she was acting super tired at 2pm so i tried to put her down again only to go in 10 minutes later to tears and a vomit soaked cot.
the good: finally checking my post office box this morning and finding not only the japanese craft book i had ordered but the most wonderful package that had been waiting there since the end of JUNE. i don't use my po box much so i rarely check it unless i'm expecting something and this was totally unexpected. i had sent lovely magda some leather bits after seeing her amazing leather creations at the last craft weekend and she in turn surprised us with this:
how brilliant is this giraffe??? mae is such a lucky little duck, see that stitching on the front? it says "mae". so, so sweet. i love this guy.
the bad: cleaning up vomit number two from my clothes, mae's clothes and the floor.
the good: i gave mae her first shower after vomit number two which was pretty fun. then she sat quietly in front of the tv for a good 15 minutes while i cleaned the floor and put a load of laundry on. it was high five which would defintely not be my choice for her viewing as it drives me a little crazy but the fact that she sat and watched is a first.
(ignore pre-reno carpet and faux wood paneling please)
and another good: the postman delivered one of my online fabric purchases! (from here)
quite a bit brighter than i normally choose, no? maybe i was trying to interject a little colour into my sick self when i ordered them. i mean, i like them all but am not sure what most of them are destined for. yet.
and that's the way we roll around here.
