Beautiful weather!

Yesterday and today, the temperature was in the 60s. I took the kids to the zoo on Tuesday and Chim was pretty good! She loves to watch the penguins under the water. She was glaringly unimpressed with the polar bears, and she wanted to see a black one. We saw the baby tiger cubs and they're GIGANTIC. And oh so cute. Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium really is a nice little place. Badger did very well and didn't cry in his stroller this time and I'm looking forward to his being able to enjoy it more!!!

And today Badger and I went to Target to replace a lamp that his destructo-sister broke in her room yesterday. He was terrific in the store, but he has reached the point in infancy where the world is more fascinating than eating... and Lookie Loos don't get milky in Target. I swear I've flashed so many people the past few days. Oh, and he didn't latch on correctly because he wasn't paying attention... and now I have a hickey on my areola.

He's sleeping moderately better since a friend encouraged me to give gas drops a try. I hope that we can get him to sleep better -- he's such a happier guy when he sleeps. And I'm much happier too. I hate that I'm not a great mom when I'm exhausted. I cry when I get tired. Yesterday as I was walking with Chim, and she asked to be carried, I cried a little. She said, "Mommy's sad. It's OK, Mommy." And she gave me a hug. I was so proud that she was so compassionate but horrified that I put her in that position. That's not a fair thing for a mom to do to a toddler.
