Advil PM & Fire

I've been feeling bad the last 36 hours or so - just a head cold I'm sure. I decided to take an Advil PM last night and wound up fast asleep around 9:45. SincJulia often comes into our room during the night I wasn't surprised to wake up with her next to me - the problem was that I woke up to Julia W-H-I-N-I-N-G. My response (apparently) was "SHHH! If you want to whine, you can just go back in your room and do it alone. I'm REALLY tired!" Then I went back to sleep. After church, we were eating lunch and Matt started laughing about the whining episode. He said that it occured after 6 this morning. I was talking about how TIRED I was after I'd already been dead to the world for a good 8 hours. oops! Then, Julia chimed in about the bad dream she had last night. Now, I'm not sure if I believe her completely - she often says she's had a bad dream when she comes running in the living room 10 minutes after we've put her to bed. But what if she did? Perhaps, my 3 year old did have a bad dream last night and the only response she got from her mom was "stop whining or go to your own room." The possibility of that makes me sad.


This afternoon, Matt took the girls outside to play. All 3 of them wanted me to join in on the fun, but I took my time getting out there. When I did walk out, I realized Matt was "making something." Making what?? A fire pit of course! All 4 of us wound up walking around the back ally looking for rocks.

We didn't actually cook anything on it today, but Matt did start a little fire for the girls to see.
