I am Johanna, and this is what I find my self doing at 2 in the morning. I know you don’t ever see updates from me but I had a sprout of inspiration. Weird sort of thing, inspiration. It comes out of nowhere and if you don’t do anything with it all you are left with is a sense of “I should have done something but now I forget what it was.” Being an artist I get sprouts of inspiration a lot and have learned(the hard way) to use it or lose it. So here it goes.
Bernadette hasn’t been eating a lot lately and when she does find a food she likes it is all she will eat for days. Last week it was cheerios, two days ago it was sausage (hence the title meat… yeah, you get it), and today it is cinnamon toast, with the crusts cut off! I think she has had 6 pieces so far today. We were joking the other day that we should all start the “Bernadette fast” where we only eat Bernadette’s flavor of the week. But unfortunately I failed when Mom opened the chocolate.
Bernadette’s friend Stephanie came over to play today. Unfortunately for Bernadette, she fell asleep and didn’t get much time with Stephanie. But I lucked out and got to have fun with her. We made Kraft Dinner, and watched a movie, and were just about to play Barbies when she had to go home. I hope Bernadette doesn’t mind sharing when Stephanie comes to play on Tuesday. 😉
Our oldest brother, Paul, and his wife Christina came for dinner tonight. Baby Ruth has gotten so big in the last couple of weeks! Zoe was fascinated by Ruth and tried to fling herself out of my arms whenever she saw Ruth. I think the two of them will be great playmates.
Well I hope I didn’t bore you. This update wasn’t all about Bernadette, and I think that’s good. If you paint all these clouds with silver linings your picture is still going to seem so gloomy. Where as if you add pockets of blue it brightens up the mood. I’m just trying to add that patch of blue and show that even though the world seems to be revolving around Bernadette we still have those star moments that keep the mood light.
(Let’s see. Bit of sarcasm… Check. Pun attempt… Check. Random family stuff… Check. Inspirational stuff… Check. Repeating everything Mom posted… Probably. Wait! is this thing still on?! Oops…. 🙂
God’s blessing to you all.
All our love…
love, bob and joan
