Saturday - Catching Z's

I learned how to tell when Mom is really really tired. This is what happens:

She comes home from day hunting late, feeds you, collects the papers in the hallway, brings in the big recycling bin, closes the window sticks, puts a pot of water on the hot as hell box and turns the computer on before she takes her coat off . Then she makes bright orange macaroni and cheese out of a box, adds frozen peas and then eats it out of the pot with a soup spoon. After that, she takes off her shoes and climbs into bed fully clothed without even putting that sticky thing on her nose.

I think I'm going to have to give her lessons in napping.

This quilt is "Persian"


This one is called "Brown Betty."This one is "Orange Crush"

Mom's asking for her Bammmbien...

haha Momma is saying to herself MMmmm when your Momma mentioned Mac N cheese with peas!!
You look very cuddly in your pick and the orange gizzy is really petty, well they all are, but that stands out a little :)
I hope you and your Momma get a good sleep :)

I have a Mommy just like that now, except Daddy is nice and makes her dinner!

Mom has had days like that, too. She is lucky now because our Nana is the best cook in the world and has dinner all ready when she gets home!

My mommy used to work long hours but now she is at home most of the time now. I couldn't ask for more!

Mom needs better fast food and some comfy PJs... Tell her to try several large chinese take-outs and freeze portions if she can't cook. And Beins dont sleep well in their day clothes either. A little pampering goes a long way.

And we notice her night-time habit doesnt involve you. Thats wrong, she needs you on her lap!!!

don't wake up your mom in the morning Millie! Let her sleep in! We don't like letting our mom sleep in though.
