New doodle pen

The kids are beginning to wake up earlier again – that’s the draw back to lighter, brighter, fresher mornings full of bird song, it’s the grating cry of “DAD! DAD! DAD! HOP ME UP!”. We have to remember to go to bed earlier and not spend stupid amounts of time looking at celebrity blogs. It’s a little like watching bad television – you get too tired to actually get up and turn it off and go to bed, so you just sit there in a sleepy stupor. Oh! Frances Bean Cobain is turning 16!! How did that happen? click. Oh wow, Suri’s blanky is so much nicer than Lily’s – every time I see it I think “why did Lily have to fall in love with the hot pink polyester sleeping bag?” etc. I need more sleep.

    Like the new doodle pen, though.Or there’s when the kids get just a little older (reading until 8.45) and you really really want them to not drag it out tonight because you’ve really got to catch up on sleep. And your bedtime is 9.30. Pitiful, but true (sometimes).

    How does Suri’s blanket stay so white…?

    I was staying up late but realized that I was too tired to be productive at night. So I’ve started going to bed early and waking up at 4am just so that I can have some quite “me” time. It’s hard to read celebrity blogs with a crying baby anyway.

    hilarious! i think suri has lots and lots of the same blankie . . . so, it could be worse and you could have lots of piles of ugly pink sleeping bags!

    You’d feel better about the pink fleece if you saw the current state of the smallest’s granny blanket.

    Autumn is coming here in Glasgow, Scotland. We could see our breath this morning, and it felt really cold, however it makes a change from the rain we’ve had all august! Ahh, enjoy the sun!
