sleep

There was melting snow. The weather has been occasionally warmer. And now we see grass for the first time since we left for Christmas vacation. 

We tried to do something new to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday this year. Instead of cake, green eggs and ham or other food related items, we made oobleck. Rebecca found a few recipes to make a non-Newtonian fluid and Paela helped us color and play with it. I'm not a fan of the stuff, but Paela liked playing with it.

Aderyn has refused her medicine for several weeks now, which means no sleep at night and stomach troubles during the day. After trying a wide range of unsuccessful transportation methods, we finally discovered that she will (for now) take her morning and evening dosage if we douse it in blue kool-aid. So, for the past week she only wakes up (briefly) twice at night and doesn't throw up during the day. Hooray.

We finally got our car in to service on Saturday. We had scheduled a maintenance visit weeks back, but then we all got really ill for a full week and when we attempted to reschedule, the calendar showed us the next available date was this Saturday. So, we were only 500 miles over...

Camilla and Cameron came over for a girl scout cookie party last night. And then the girls didn't sleep well last night, so we're trying to catch some naps today.
