So, does anyone have any suggestions on reheating day old waffles where they are still yummy? I reheated them in the microwave. Maybe tomorrow I’ll try reheating them in the toaster.

Oooh rabbits. Or not rabbits. Rabbit. Singular. I’ll show it tomorrow or the day after. I ran to get my camera and lost all my drive. The thought of downloading new pictures and then all the rigmarole that followed just drained all my energy away.

When Isabelle asked for “mocha”, she was in the kitchen talking to Alan, and I actually misheard her and thought she did ask for coffee. I thought that was funny, a four year old asking for coffee. :)

Nathan pushing himself up from a laying position all by himself!! I was so excited when he did it that I sent a picture mail to Alan telling him. That’s when Alan popped my happy bubble saying Nathan had done it earlier while I was doodling and I was too wrapped up to notice.

My new bedtime routine works…mostly. I pull a pretend drawer out of the headboard and sprinkle the pretend fairy powder on her. I tell her she can’t get up or else the powder will fall off. Isabelle will lay there. But not quietly. Sometimes she will jabber away laying nice and still. Maybe I will need to add more to the “game”. Something about loud noises knocking the powder off.

And guess what we had before breakfast today? Orange smoothie pops. Isabelle waited so patiently yesterday and it was going to take a while for me to make waffles for breakfast so yep, popsicles before breakfast.

  1. I know I comment this comment all the time but Waaaaaah! I wish we lived closer so Isabel and Bug could be friends. I would love Bug to try something like a mandarin orange!

  2. Reheating waffles in microwave = yuck. Reheating waffles in toaster = not as good as fresh, but MUCH better than microwave. Heating them right on the oven rack (try 300 degrees for 5-10 minutes) is also an option.

    Good luck with the sleep thing. I have no advice because Annalie is one of the worst sleepers in the world. She resists sleep more than anyone I’ve ever met…except perhaps me. I guess I have no one else to blame for that one, eh? :-)

  3. My kids have been drinking a cup of milky coffee for breakfast since they were about 18 months. I used to be able to get them decaf coffee when we go to coffee houses which was much cheaper than cocoa but now they want sweet stuff.

    I was reading your sketchbook page about Isabelle climbing in bed and feeling aww and sympathetic remembering all that and then my seven year old knocked on my sewing room door all bleary eyed and I guided her into my bed and now I need to read the rest of your sketchbook tomorrow before she shows up wondering where I am 8-)

  4. waffles in the toaster = Thumbs up! My little girl Cali sleeps VERY similiar to Isabelle. She’ll sleep 12 hours, except of course the last five she spends in bed with us. Cause theres no chance in hell I’m getting out of bed at 5am. And of course I’m not allowed to leave until she’s asleep.

  5. About the waffles, this is what I do. Sprinkle them VERY lightly with water, wrap in aluminum foil and reheat in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes. They kind of steam themselves so that they heat up but don’t harden as they would if you didn’t protect them from the direct heat.
