Wow, I have now done 25 of these 7 Quick Takes Fridays! Time really flies when you are using a meme to cram a bunch of random thoughts into one post.

Saturday and Sunday is the Cottonwood Art Festival in Richardson, where I met Dave Rizzo Studios, who is behind the design of my blog header and background. Looking forward to seeing Dave and his family again!

I did 3 bentos this week but only took pictures of 2 of them. And only one picture has been downloaded to my computer, this one (which is not very good):

I have not been blogging as much lately and I am sorry about that. Once again, my children do not sleep. I am doing around 10 hours of part time work a week (combining paid and unpaid), and since there is no time during the day that I can work because no one is napping, I have to do it all after they go to bed. You might recall that they won’t go to sleep until around 9-9:30pm. So, yeah… most of the time I am up until 1:00am working and then I have to get up twice during the night with the baby before everyone gets up for good at 6:00am. This is why I have not been blogging.

I am really excited about The Keeta Collection. Look for a blog post about their Etsy shop in the next few weeks!

I love Dr. Sears as much as the next natural parent. But when Christian found this article on high needs babies, I was discourage to find that, just like everyone else, he seems to believe that high needs only exists for the first 3 months of life and then everything straightens out when the babies sleep through the night at that magical age. Excuse me while I call bullshit on that. So far both of my kids have gotten worse after 3 months, and never slept through the night anywhere near that magical age. Sorry, Dr. Sears, sometimes you are just as delusional as Dr. Weiss@ss.

If anyone feels like commenting today, I’d love to hear what kinds of topics you’d like to see on this blog in the future? Not just “how to be green”, but is there anything fun you’d like me to write about? Would love to hear from you!
