i get to read. in bed.

lola is officially 100% moved into her own room! finally. her junk and toys and clothes have been in her own room for  awhile but now her bed and all- she is officially weaned from our room! our room is once again completely ours. it took a little work and she tried to drag her things back to our room, but we did it. this is a big deal because she turned 2 in february. some people are ok with breastfeeding until their kids start kindergarten, or all sleeping together and having the "family bed",  which i have always been completely against. i can't stand sleeping with my kids in my bed. cuddling is one thing but actually sleeping? and getting any real rest?? with kids??? i do love my kids but good grief...and one of my favorite relaxing-type things to do  is read in bed and have some tea. (merv always chews me out out about it because he says i leave cups of unfinished tea lying all over the house.) but i rarely got to do this with a kid sleeping in my room...anyway, the point of all of this is that i once again get to read in bed at night. with tea if i want. and that makes me pretty happy.
...lola is pretty much obsessed with these jelly shoes. they look just like her cousin brinley's jelly shoes which she is also obsessed with

Hip hip hooray! You're nicer than I am- at about 6 months I'm SO ready for the kids to be out of my room.

Sooo nice! I love reading in bed but can only do the tea thing in the winter. Happy day for you! I'm reading "Saigon" right now. VERY GOOD.
