Little Prince isn't sleeping right again.  I am exhausted and the prospect of fall coming and trying to get up the energy to homeschool while not getting enough sleep is daunting.  I have things to do but it  feels like all I am doing is entertaining my beautiful boy.  I spend mornings outdoors with him, I spend afternoons keeping him from hurting himself while running around the living room.  He is crazy, he climbs on the tables, he climbs window frames, he tries to pull the television down, he pushes every button he can find.  I  spend all my time chasing him to keep him safe.  In the evenings he gets up and we gave snacks on the steps.  Then he wakes up again in the middle of the night and won't settle until we go outside again.  Which means I am the crazy lady walking my boy around the block in the middle of the night.

Change and Ownership

My baby girl is growing up.  Princess Snifflefritz has asked us to use her whole name instead of the shortened version we have used since she was born.  It is hard to remember but I am going to try to honor her request.  She is still so little for so much name but she has to have ownership of her name.

favorite things

I have to say that since moving here, my favorite thing to do is sit out by my door with the kids.  I love the cool breezes, I love the peaceful scenery, I love greeting my neighbors, and I love how much the kids like it too.  I sit out Little Prince when he gets up late at night and needs a snack and fresh air and I sit out with him for his breakfast some days too.  It is so soothing and lovely.

My baby boy tried a new food today!  Voluntarily!  He saw Princess Belle eating an apple and cried for it.  I gave it to him and he actually ate some!  Autism be darned, my boy tried anew food and liked it!
