just a little green

It's amazing the difference that good weather makes. Good weather and good sleep. We had some days that included those things.

Our seeds looked like this (or more accurately, our dirt looked like this):

And just when I was beginning to feel that Super Mom high, things whipped the other direction.

There I was feeling smug with my clean house and happy time outside and the next thing I know Alice has a high fever and Clark is having night terrors and we're out of every single grocery item and it's snowing.

I did not take pictures of that stuff.

But this is what the seeds look like now:

Does anyone need a green bean plant?


  1. LOL - I only started one tray of seeds, you are going to have a much bigger garden than we will :) But we also so far have had the best success with green beans.

  2. It looks like your son is talking on his blackberry. great pics.

  3. Love the little man cardy. So cute. We had great weather and now it is cold. Luckily, no snow. I'm with you on the groceries. We have zero food. We made fake broccoli cheese soup by mixing cream of broccoli and cheddar cheese soup. That's pretty lame. I don't even know why we had cream of broccoli. Who eats that?

  4. Glad you got a nice dose of spring before things broke loose a bit. Hope everyone is feeling better. Your kids are adorable. Don't know if it would help, but I've been reading the No Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers and Preschoolers by Elizabeth Pantley. So far I'm really liking it, and there's a section on night terrors that you might find helpful. I didn't actually read that section, so I'm not swearing to it. My library had a copy, so maybe yours would too.
    Your seedlings are so stinkin' cute. Mine aren't even remotely photo worthy.

  5. Sorry your little darling is feeling Yucky, praying she is better soon, also praying that your son's night terrors go away. I will post about our experience with night terrors really soon. As for seedlings, yours look great. We started ours a little too early and they are getting huge. And I just love your sons cape. Your children are precious.

  6. Erin, you take great photographs and you capture ordinary moments so well.

    Is Clark wearing a little superhero outfit in that 1st pic?

    And, wow! Your green bean plants look quite healthy.

    P.S. We're out of groceries too. Our refrigerator is *really* barren right now...
