the good, the bad and the so, so tired

First the good:
1. The CPSIA, following sense and logic, has granted a one year stay on the testing certification requirements for toys, etc. I never doubted this would happen, though there are rumblings from big business to take down the handmade movement. But that's just how capitalism works, right?

2. I bought a camera! It's a Nikon D40, which is probably the nicest camera I'll ever have. So pictures will resume shortly but you'll have to bear with me while I figure out how to use it.

The bad:
Tigerlily had her first ever ear infection this weekend, complete with delirious fever, a gooey ear and terrible pain. Good times.

...and of course, though we survived, we are now so, so tired.


  1. ouch, ear pain is the worst! My son had bad ears the entire first year, cried non-stop. I'm amazed I had a 2nd child after that! :) Hang in there!

  2. I can't believe I survived almost 6 years with no ear problems (or really ANY problems, she's had a cold once or twice and thrown up a handful of times, but that's it!). Though I've never had an ear infection myself I've heard that the pain can be terrible, so I was very sympathetic. She seems completely fine now...could it be over?
