As my 20 month old sleeps, I can finally catch up on tasks such as paying bills, checking email, reading magazines that I've been ignoring, but instead, I sit here and am watching tv. I don't know how long it's been that I've actually seen a whole movie uninterrupted. But, I wouldn't trade this little tyke in for the world. I don't need much else.

School is starting in three weeks! I used to love to go school supply shopping. The smell of new crayons, pristine notebooks, markers, and full gluesticks always make me wanna go back to school. Unfortunately, my daughter doesn't use crayons in school anymore and her supplies are so different depending on each class that I don't do that anymore. I will definately miss it. The school cirriculum is so different as well. Whereas she started out writing cursive in kindergarten, by the time she got to fifth grade, it wasn't mandatory anymore. She hasn't written cursive in years and I wish that it would be expected as it were when I was in school long ago. How times have changed.
