I just put the girls down for a nap a little while ago (Alice is NOT interested), and once again, Helen insisted on napping with Alice in Alice’s room.

For a little while, I got to listen to Helen soothe Alice through the baby monitor. Then I got to listen to both girls giggling happily. Now I’m listening to Alice’s tired crying.

Mommy doesn’t care. Their naps were worthless yesterday, and they WILL sleep today, dammit. Besides, I have a fabulous loaner machine in my possession to play with until my machine gets fixed, so I’ve got some bells and whistles to explore.

(If there were a baby monitor transmitter in here and YOU were listening, you’d be hearing some manic giggling right about now…)

UPDATE: 2:41pm. Alice woke up after finally getting to sleep… She had a whopping 25-minute nap today. Mommy is NOT. HAPPY.

Another Blasted Project

Well, a friend showed me these last night, and it just makes me snicker to think of our kitties in one of them.

So. As soon as I’m done knitting the butternut blanket I started in February (only about 6-7 inches left to go on that, if that much!), I’ll perhaps start one of these. Not sure, though. There are other projects in the pipeline ahead of it.

Nice thing, though — it’s not too difficult a pattern, so it would be a good thing to work on at Vestry meetings (I need something to keep my hands busy so I don’t strangle the windbags who make the meetings run so long)… So I’ll probably do one just for grins.

Hey, Jerry — maybe I should make a purple one to give Claire so her kitties have somewhere to lounge in her studio?
