So last night we got brilliant (or desperate to sleep until 7 am, whatever you want to call it) and decided that we'd give him a bottle about 10 before we went to bed.
Carter woke up at 4:20 this morning.
I don't think our plan was very effective.
Maybe tonight we'll try giving him a bottle and Tylenol at 10. And Orajel. And does anyone one know of any good child-safe sedatives? We're starting to get desperate here...

My immediate thought was "I want that for Allison" followed almost immediatly by "What a great church/car/airplane toy!" As luck would have it I happen to need airplane toys, and have nothing but time on my hands in the evenings now that all of my worldly possessions are on a 53 foot semi headed for Syracuse.

Today, while trying to get packed up (again) I came across a box labeled "Rosie Memorbelia" (yes, apparently I'm famous enough or novel or enough or just plain cool enough to have my own brand of memorbelia! Check a gift store near you...). Inside the box? 10 years worth of 4-H ribbons. Two bundles of blue awards, a bundle of red awards, a smattering of whites and several stacks of those cool special award championship type rosettes (yep... they let us non-hosre kids have those too).
I feel like, at age 27, 9 years after the fact, I really ought to be able to let go of these... I mean what are they going to do besides sit in a box? But they represent so much hard work, and the just look cool!
So I hit google. And I found this...
and a whole bunch more. Quilts & quilt wall-hangings made of of award ribbons. WOW! I want to make one of my very own. But I'm pretty sure the last thing I need is one more project on my "Wanna Do" list (which, for the record, has more than likely surpassed Brian's "Honey Do" list in length. I know... its long).
So tell me... yay or nay? Take the ribbons with me and put one on my to-do list (it would live in my craft/sewing room...), or leave them behind... in the garbage. What would you do?

Nice weather and a stay-home mommy mean that Allison learns the joys of feeding the ducks (frequently!) at BYU's Botony Pond.
