It's so quiet when everyone else is in bed--it's no wonder I'm a night owl! Besides, I get more work done at night. Work that doesn't require the help of anyone else, of course...and most of the time, I can think clearer late at night for some reason. But then, when I get tired, I begin to obsess about things that don't amount to a hill o' beans in the real world...

It's been a really good day. I do love being a mom. My oldest daughter and I had a dentist appointment today...we had to take the 2 younger girls with us. The good part of this? THEY BEHAVED!!! What a relief! Even the 2-year-old acted like a "lady" (as much as a 2-year-old could!haha) and she just stood and watched her big sister have her teeth cleaned. She's now looking forward to going herself next time. She has new reason to hurry up and turn 3. Haha I love to just sit and watch the girls...how they move, talk, act, interact with each other...and that all 3 of them are so different, yet with so many similarities. The 5-year-old discovered she has another loose tooth. She just can't wait to pull it so that her kindergarten class can sing "the tooth song" to her. It's so cute to watch the determination on her face when she's wiggling that tooth. And the oldest, 7, bless her heart...she tries so hard. She is such a good girl. She's really trying hard to be helpful to me around the house, and she is wonderful with her sisters. She's always (literally from the moment she was born) acted older than she is in a lot of ways. But other times, she's right on track--it was SO funny when I "caught" her making faces at herself in the window at church earlier. It was even funnier to see the look on her face when she saw me watching. Days like today make me wonder what I ever did before I had them....
