Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, "Heard" items, and other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post.

Friday Fragments are the brainchild of Mrs.4444 and you can find more at Half Past Kissin' Time.

~ Again this week I was ready to sit down and write a post, but what I have on Thursday night is two sick kids (up one from this morning) and I'm stealthily watching Private Practice (which is hurting me so much and if I wasn't typing I would likely be bawling) on the computer with headphones and typing and crossing my fingers that he'll stay in restless sleep long enough for me to finish this post. Danny started coughing yesterday and had a fever last night, we took him to the doctor today and he has a wet cough and a mild ear infection. Then tonight Sam was really restless falling asleep and now he's feverish too. Awesome. I have no idea what's going on but I hope I'm not next.

~ This week, Sam and I were at the end of the driveway waiting for the school bus. He likes it when I stand outside the car and he leans out the window and we dance to the music together. He also really likes it when Justin or I "do Danny's voice" - talk in a high little voice and pretend it's Danny talking. We were talking about the cars going by on the road so I had Danny ask Sam "what's that noise?" Sam replied, "It's just vehicles."

~ We've been working on getting Sam sleeping in his own bed again. He did a full week, then he regressed a little. We decided to try the 'sleep fairy' idea, giving him a little prize under his pillow each morning if he stays in his own bed all night. He has also been waking up less during the night, and going back to sleep easier when he does wake up. It's been awesome. Even if he comes in our room he knows that he's not allowed to be in the bed with us, he can sleep on his "floor bed," which is Danny's crib mattress on the floor with a pillow and blanket. It's been great having our bed somewhat back - Danny's still in it, but that's a whole other story.

~ Here is a gratuitous photo of me as a baby, because I scanned it last week and it makes me smile.

Baby me

~ Do you read The Spohrs are Multiplying? Well, if you don't, you should. If nothing else, you need to check out Spohr TV. Saying that Heather & Annie's videos make my day every single time is a humongous understatement. SO CUTE. Just look at this awesome Halloween video:

~ I have a bunch of things saved under a "Friday Fragments" tab in my browser on my laptop to share, but I can't get to them right now as the couches are occupied by two sick kids and a passed out husband. Next week I have posts coming continuing my 30 Days of Truth, a followup to my DSLR question post, and a big update on what happened at Sam's eye doctor appointment and our first visit to the GI specialists, both at Children's Hospital in Seattle.

~ Aaaaand... Sam is stirring, and the baby's coughing so I guess I'm done. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Aw, sick kids are no fun! I hope they're feeling better soon. Great kid picture, I scanned in a few from my first few halloweens last week and it's always fun to relive certain memories while digging through a box of old pictures.

Can't wait to hear what you ended up doing with your DSLR! I got the Canon 50mm/f1.4 late in August for an early birthday present and now it's pretty much the only lens I use.
