3. Elizabeth has become alarmingly fast in the last week. On Tuesday I was trying to get the lid on a container of goldfish crackers, lost my grip, and dumped them on the floor. Elizabeth was just down the hall and as the Costco-sized container of goldfish spread across the floor she stared, and then advanced at hyperspeed, with a beatific, "The Heavens Have Opened!" expression, and was eating handfuls while I tried to sweep them up.
4. Thomas hasn't broken anything recently. This is probably jinxing it.
5.We didn't celebrate St. Lucia's. I thought we were doing pretty well to celebrate Our Lady of Guadalupe. Maybe in a couple of years I'll work up to it.
6. I'm writing an actual guest post of someone else's blog, about diabetes and trying to make life kind of normal with a diabetic, and it's turning into a book and I wonder how much detail I should go back and erase. It's interesting, but it might only be interesting to me. I've mostly got the 'living with' part and not the 'making life normal' part.
7. Because Nat decided to wear snowpants while playing Minecraft, which I think cuts out the 'normal' ever. Also, I think Minecraft is teaching him to read. He typed 'strfish' into Google images yesterday (without permission), but spelling phonetically. That's pretty cool.
