Well today should have gone fantastically, but instead of enjoying an awesome night’s sleep, I worried constantly that Cole was going to wake up at any moment and be ready to party. He took a late-in-the-day nap that turned into an epic 15 hour hibernation, and because I fretted about it, my night blew. I’ve been dragging and unfocused today.

Our first casualty happened, sadly on my watch. After a couple dozen falls over the last year (or two?) Cole’s iPad screen finally broke in one corner. The protective screen over it makes it a very ignorable problem for now, but damn. Why did it have to go down like that? Christine does not have magical iPad protection powers, I am not taking the heat for this!

Stella stood on her own power for about 30 seconds today, the last 25 seconds of which she stood looking at me like “WHY DO YOU HATE ME SO MUCH YOU BROKE MY HEART!”. She forgave me a minute later and practiced her horrible and adorable brand of peekaboo.

Cole is now falling asleep watching Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2, or according to Cole the “Food Movie”, having volunteered to go to bed, which is a nice quiet end to the night.

So you know, good night, and enjoy the selfies.
