there are not enough hours in the day...

here it is, 12:33 am and i am still wide awake, wanting to soak up every last minute of the day!

you know, all these years, i've said, "i'm not a morning person." but i feel most alive/awake in the wee hours. midnight to 2 am is my favorite these days.

but with a little daredevil baby that keeps me on my toes, and likes to wake up at 7:30 in the morning, it's getting harder to get through the day with all my brains intact.

poor little one bumped her head on a wooden toy box friday night. had to take her to the emergency room at 9 at night. waited an hour in the emergency waiting room. waited two hours in the triage. she was asleep by the time the dr. came to stitch her up. she slept right through it. 1-2-3 little stitches and we were on our way home.

can i just wrap her up in bubble wrap until she's 30? keep her safe from harm? this little one will slow down for no one. she's meeting life's challenges head-on. literally!


  1. Your sweetie is darling. Love that hat:) Is that your creative journal? It is lovely!! I am here from Trudy's blog. I just signed up for the Artistic Mother's Group!!

  2. Hi, Nicole! Just found your blog through Facebook. How old is your youngest? My Sophie is 19 months and she is always getting into mischief, too! I'm worried that I'll need poison control on speed dial soon! No ER visit yet, thank goodness! I love your photos!

  3. I completely get the bubble wrap desires, lol. My little girl is so incredibly daring ... much more so than her older brother ever was. The girl jumps off the couch onto hardwood floors for fun, lol. A few more months and she'll be old enough to sign up for some classes to channel the antics.

    Your daughter is just a doll!

    I'm a wee hours person, too. And yes -- it's very hard when the rest of the world, esp. your family, is not:)

  4. lol..i had one like that...he was walking at 8 months...he totally missed the sitting stage...he's still the same now at 17...lol...ful of spirit!!!xx

  5. Poor baby! I know the feeling. Tristan fell a few times when he was little (what am I saying-he's his Mom's son-he STILL falls...balance is not always our best trait!) and it always hurt to see the bumps and bruises that our babies can accumulate. They learn how to pick themselves up and keep walking :)

  6. I totally know what you mean...my sweet pea is almost 9 and I wish I could keep her all safe from now until eternity...hoping she will live with her daddy and I forever....ha!

  7. I want to make sure that as much as possible that everyone else in the group is aware of when you post something for our group, The Artistic Mother's Art Group, so that you will receive visits. We now have 99 participants. That is so great! Because we are so large, it is not possible to visit each and every post that every member puts up; so when you post something related to The Artistic Mother's Art group, I would suggest that you start your title off with "Artistic Mother" to maximize your chances of others from the group paying you a visit. I look at the blog roll for our group every day; and when I see those words, I automatically know that this is a post that I don't want to miss. Please continue to check the blog roll on my blog for Artistic Mother Group related posts on a regular basis so that we can continue to encourage one another in our efforts to do a little something creative each day. Only five show at a time. Just click "Show All" to see all of the blogs. Also, keep in mind that if you are leaving encouraging comments, that will ensure that you will receive some back yourself.

    Another thing you can do to help you remember to check my blog often to see if I have posted or check the blog roll to see if others have posted is you can put my blog on your blog roll and/or in your reader so you'll easily see when I've posted and you don't have to try to remember on your own.

  8. I came here via Jenny Doh and your moo card...lovely art and the photos of your sweetie pie are so cute! My two daughters are now grown and on their own...but I still remember that 'wish I could wrap them in bubble wrap' feeling. Being on the other side of childrearing- 99% of the time they get up, dust off and just keep going!! you will **know** when something is really wrong. We moms have a 6th sense about it- you will hear it in their cry- and you will become Momma Bear as you go to help or protect them. Now I have a beautiful granddaughter and I see my daughter become Momma Bear now...and so it goes...

  9. Beautiful journal pages .
    Hope your baby are all right.
