Last night I wrapped up some stickers and hankies and left them in Mollie's room so she would have a little surprise this morning. I think it was just what she needed to start the day off right!

We were cruising until about 2 P.M. - that's when the roller coaster started.

The steroids zap Mollie's energy and wreak havoc on her emotions. She is good at articulating her needs and feelings when she's well rested. But when she starts to get tired, watch out! It is all tears, pouting, yelling. All she really wanted to do was "play with some kids." Any kids. Except Lucy. Or me, pretending to be a kid. And this was after a 3 hour nap.

We're definitely getting cabin fever around here.

Last night Matt mentioned flights to the Turks and Caicos Islands are $130 each way. Hmmm.....


  1. Very cute and clever idea to leave a surprise for her in the morning!

    FYI, the package I sent nearly a month ago was returned by FedEx (??) so the contents are going with Mommo tomorrow.

  2. hugs. i am totally with you on all this, except the steroids etc. meaning you are dealing with so much more and dealing well. hugs!
