back at it

Blogs that aren't updated frequently always make me suspect. I question the author's motivation and commitment. Why should I put the time in to read if they aren't going to keep writing?* And here I am. One of the worst examples of leaving a blog fallow there is. I will argue that I have no clear goal or motivation for this little blog and that I am much too tired to bother. It is true but still I can't help but push myself on occasion and make the commitment to post every day for a bit no matter how mundane or annoying an exercise. So, for the next month I have a plan. I will be here every day, likely right before bedtime because I forgot to fit it in otherwise.

*This is a bit overly dramatic. I really don't judge people for their lack of attention to their blogs but it is true, and reasonable I think, that I don't tend to follow people who don't write with some frequency.

bad times

Bedtime makes me want to kick a hole in something, eat a chocolate cake, and take drugs, not necessarily in that order. Almost every night. Seriously, we have to be doing something wrong here. This cannot be normal. It cannot be this hard for most children to fall asleep without screaming, whining, crying, demanding, begging and fighting to name a few. I'm sure it won't last but I have no idea what to do to get us through. My crying babies were frustrating but they never made me angry. This business with an almost-3-year-old and 5-and-a-half year old, it makes me angry.
