Up Above the World So High ...

Quinlan had a rough time getting to sleep tonight. She started off the night being a bit goofy and playing around. She tried to dive on to her bed and misjudged things, hitting her face against the footboard and resulting in many tears.

After some bedtime stories and a little snuggling, she was supposed to get to sleep ... which isn't exactly what happened. Instead, she spent a bit of time crying and complaining. Evelin and I both tried to calm her down, but she was a bit irrational. First she was scared of the light, then scared of the dark. After a bit of discussion about how you can't have the light "in the middle" — you either have the light on or off, the same way you can only either be on a horse of off a horse — I tried raising her shade, figuring the outside light would be bright enough to not be dark without actually being light.

Despite it being a bit cloudy, Quinn was sure she could see a star, so she started singing:
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like ... Hey! It does look like a diamond ...

Hi Carter!
Goodness so many years has passed since I've read your blog! Your Girls are so beautiful and school age already.

I remember the first picture I saw of Celeste and how she looks so much like her Mum and she still does in most of the photos... It's the smiling eyes.

Quinlan is also beautiful.. it's so unbelievable how much they have grown. I hope you are all well as well as your family in LA.

Well you probably won't remember me as my blog wasn't significant, but think of Radio Userland.

Happy Easter!
