New Speakers!

Oh, my goodness. A subwoofer makes all the difference. These Vivaldi cello sonatas and concertos? Positively creamy. A dark cream, but creamy nonetheless.

Liam fell asleep in the car on the way home from shopping, and I managed to not only get him out of the car without waking him up, but inside the house, into his crib, and out of his jacket. I’m feeling pretty darn smug, let me tell you. Of course, he’s going to be ravenous when he eventually wakes up, because he fell asleep before he could have his lunch, but now I have the time to fix his sandwich and potatoes without the boy having a minor meltdown about how cruel I am to keep him waiting the five minutes it takes to prepare his meal. I’ll just keep them warm. And then after lunch it’s off to visit with his godparents!

As an antidote to all that feeling smartness, I feel dumb because I can’t collapse the new umbrella stroller we used. At all. I like to think it’s jammed, but I probably just can’t remember the correct combination of push-here bend-there it requires.

    I love those little achievements. I know exactly what you’re going through!!! Seems like I can’t fix a normal meal without a protesting bulldoser trying to wedge his head between my calves to see what I’m cooking. You’d think his world was ending by the length of time it was taking me to cook. Five minutes feels like fifty. And anytime you can get from car, to crib without waking is definitely worth a nap for Mom too. Take care of yourself. It’s going to be a snowy winter soon.

    It’s never worked before; he always woke up when the car stopped. I was positively giddy when I crept out of his room and closed the door behind me. :)
