Rough night.

For some ungodly reason our two and a half year old sleep regressed last night like no one has probably ever sleep regressed before. He cried out for us for about an hour, maybe even more as it is a blur. He alternated between crying "Mama" and "Daddy" after one of us left the room in an attempt to soothe him. I admit I did snap once actually yelling out "Shut Up" from our bedroom because I believed I was about to have a heart attack and needed to die in my sleep.

Exhaustion makes you a horrible ogre of a person. I love my son, I hate sleep regression. All clear? Good.

My husband was and is the better parent. He went in to our son's room, laid some blankets on the floor and held onto our little one's hand until he nodded off which seemed to happen pretty quickly.

Today I am barely able to string a coherent sentence together. Had I left the spelling mistakes in this post you would have seriously questioned if I was stroking out.

I think it is high time that people stop talking about the normal things babies/kids do, like potty training, eating solids, etc.  and discuss these types of incidents more often. From growth spurts to sleep regression to not wanting to eat anything but shrimp, these topics are not on most people's radar until you have a kid and in a panic do a Google search hoping your kids has not contracted some sort of tropical disease. Thank God our friends who have kids have alerted us to specific things that will miraculously come about when they hit a certain age. You think, "not my child", but oh yeah, it comes out of left field, smacks you on the head and pinches your ass. I do hope last night was a fluke and that we will not have a repeat, but from what I read on Dr. Google, it can go on for a few weeks before things go back to normal. God, your sense of humor is a touch masochistic and you have some explaining to do.

Last night got me wondering how people make it with more than two children and are not completely gray or insane. Or as I like to comment, "It is amazing civilization has made it this far." Can you imagine it is 1764 and you have five kids, one is colic and one is sleep regressing and you have to go milk the cows in two hours? My mind cannot even fathom that in any way shape or form. I want him to nap so I can disco nap for 20 minutes and hope to feel refreshed.

I may have posted this before, but I in my sleep deprived state I wanted to share it, maybe again?, because it is hilarious.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

The No Name Post

Thanks for putting up with my little rant yesterday. Now, even though I am as busy as a bee can be, writing, knitting and setting up the little man's play room, I wanted to share some links for all of you to enjoy.
The Roasted Heirloom Cauliflower and Chestnut Soup from Roost looks so comforting and delicious.
My obsession with cowl patterns from Purl Soho continues. The Garter Gaiter is divine.
I just heard about this book, "The Testament of Mary" by Colm Toibin and am intrigued to no end. Will have to add to my 'must read" list.
And this little fabulous ditty out of the UK, Pretty Nostalgic. A magazine that celebrates the "vintage, traditional and sustainable ways of living." Right up my alley.
Toques From Underground and excellent and fascinating article about underground supperclubs in The New Yorker.

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe

I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…
