Long time coming...

I have been quite the post slacker recently, but with my new found love of facebook I kinda do my "updates" there.

The biggest thing for me now is the challenge of my work schedule. Honestly, there really isn't any good way to work with my situation. I have basically settled (for now) on working every weekend 12 hour nights and a few evenings a week. The nights are okay, the hardest part is not sleeping on Monday when I come home from work until bedtime that night. I hope I don't go completely insane from poor sleep. I also miss doing the job I used to do, working with young adults. I still work with them occasionally, but it is no where near the degree I used to.

The boys are doing pretty well. Ryan still really stinks at sleeping, and has basically resigned himself to only sleeping in our bed. I am not sure how to break that habit...Isaac does pretty well in his crib, but I occasionally move him to our bed too if he won't go back to sleep in the middle of the night. I had them in our bed initially because they were both up so much in the middle of the night (especially Ryan) where I couldn't imagine being able to sleep any other way.

Claire is in potty training hell (or really I am). She gets the concept of peeing on the potty and will do it when we take her, but will never ask to go. No poop yet. I can't wait till it gets warmer so she can go diaper less in little dresses. The pressure is on since she starts PreK in September (and turns 3 end of August). I hope they don't kick us out!!

This is it for now!!!

Yeah, updates! I promise, Claire will one day just start using the potty like it's nobody's business. Unfortunately, you have to wait until she's ready (and only she knows that). Good luck!

have you tried putting ryan on his belly in the crib to sleep? i know it's a mommy no-no, but sometimes you just gotta do what works. i still have abby's angel care monitor if you decide you need it.
