a long week

Sauce looked out the window on this morning of MAY 1ST and said, "Awwwww! What's wrong with summer?"

Yup, a balmy 24 degrees and two inches of snow greeted us. That was after I thought I was going in to wake my sweet baby boy at a little after seven and found him happily playing in his crib COVERED IN BARF (I spared you a picture of this one). The poor thing got sick sometime in the night and had it from head to toe and if that was not enough, he had a poopy diaper that could be recorded in the history books. Still, nothing bothered him as he greeted me with a smile. After nursing and a light breakfast, he waved "night night" and went back to bed for a 4+ hour nap.

I can't wait for the rest of the boys to get it too!

It is the end to a long week - my beloved has been at a sales meeting in Las Vegas since Monday and will not be home until tomorrow night. I'm sure it's been long for him too, just in a non-barf filled, non-snow covered different way.


  1. oh laurie - i feel for you. how can babies NOT be bothered by the barf and poop? but so glad to hear that he took such a great nap later on : )

    love ya

  2. Oh dear. Snow, barf, husband out of town. . .I suggest a spa trip for Mother's Day to recover! If it makes you feel any better, it snowed here, too. But no one barfed, thank goodness.

  3. My sweet baby girl, you are terrific and I love you and all your barf covered, marker decorated, backwards clothed, and absent boys!!! Soon the sky will be blue, the grass will be green and all will be right with the world.

  4. Not a great day for the sweeney house. You are such a good mom and wife. Hang in there, my friend.


About Me

My photo
Messy and wonderful perfectly describes my life as a wife and mom of five. I'm passionate about advocating for orphans by telling their stories and encouraging adoption and orphan care. My schedule is messy and wonderful as I am charged with four sons and one daughter. We love living in our little mountain ski town. We do a little camping, a little skiing, a little hunting, and a lot of laughing and loving. Life is dirty and loud around here but we wouldn't want it any other way. Okay, maybe a little less dirty!
