The girl's out to kill me!

Last Saturday I posted that I was rested and ready to take on the week. Maisie though decided that I had gotten too much well deserved and needed rest and did her best to suck the life out of me all week. She seems to have decided that sleep is unnecessary for both of us. All week long she managed to skip her nap by never slowing down. I'd put her in bed for a nap and she'd jump around, go the bathroom 8,000 times, change her clothes, sing songs and constant calling to me, basically anything to avoid sleep. So you'd think she'd be tired at night but no such luck. Instead of going to bed and falling to sleep between her usual 7:30 & 8:00PM, she'd still be wide awake and wired until 9:30 or 10:00PM. Then she'd wake up at 2am and want to play or eat something, staying awake for an hour or more only to fall back to sleep to wake up for the day around 7am. I don't know how she was functioning on such little sleep but let me tell you, I was definitely dragging my tush around.

Even though exhausted (both of us), cranky (oh yeah, that would be both of us too), we still did our usual activities. Friday morning Maisie and I went to Miss Tina where Maisie got her haircut. Usually Maisie's just interested in eating her cookies and letting Tina do her thing but this time Maisie actually paid attention and was checking her self out and making sure that her hair was styled properly.

I'm so happy that spring is here and we've been having some really nice weather allowing us to be outside more. Got to get it in before the heat and humidity arrive. Funny thing though, here it is the first full day of spring and I was craving a roasted veggie soup...go figure. I made a delicious and easy Curried & Roasted Veggie Soup which is great served either hot or chilled and even Eammon, the squash hater thought the soup FABU. Go check it out over at Cook Lisa Cook.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.


  1. Oh yeah... I think there is a special class at preschools called "How to Suck the Life Right Out of Your Mommy." Rachel has taken that class... and also the 2nd part which is "How to be Totally Charming the Minute Daddy Gets Home From Work (so he won't believe sweet little YOU sucked the life right out of mommy today!)" Really, I'm convinced they have these classes at preschool!
    Maisie looks so cute checking herself out! :) Enjoy your spring weather... can't wait until we get some warmer weather up here...

  2. Whoa!!! Hope Miss Maisie gets her sleep gears going again. That post gave me flashbacks to my first nights home with the wing nut....yikes!

  3. Whew, I'd be exhausted too!!! I live for naptime and bedtime, seriously. :-)

  4. Sounds like your week was a exhausting as mine! All I can say is I feel your pain!!! :)

  5. I love that Maisie is starting to pay attention to her "grooming!" She will be asking for special cuts and a color in no time :)

  6. Oh my gosh....I am so sorry. I can just imagine. I thought we weren't getting much sleep, but man. Hang in there. Sleep has to hit her sometime, right?
