Hope, 7-Year-Old Style

I recently had a rough day. A spilled-a-32oz-cherry-icee-on-my-newly-mopped-floor day. A day with that kind of "ugh" frustration on top of my deeper discouragement with not knowing what was/is going on with a baby who was still crying 40-90 min in the middle of the night EVERY night and who was still waking up in the 5 o'clock hour and who was still taking only two 30 min naps a day.

But I got a little boost in the form of a note left on my pillow by Mister.
That is what Hope looks like when you're 7. Regardless, I think I'll take a little slice.

1. The sun on my back when I'm swimming with the kids, 2. An awesome 7-year-old boy, 3. Library books on hold

That's rough! Andrew didn't sleep longer than 30-40 minutes for naps until he was 10-11 months old (I read somewhere that for some babies it's a developmental thing). I hope it gets better soon--that lack of sleep is the hardest part of small babies. (And sometimes bigger ones too!)

I could use some of that.

That is so sweet. You know, that would give me hope, too.

That is so sweet! It so nice when they tune into the fact that we need a boost sometimes too!
