Quick Takes Volume 42

Being woken up at 4am from a deep sleep is something I'm never going to get used to.  The night before last Katie woke up in the middle of the night and screamed and cried for nearly an hour and a half.  Parenthood is not for the faint hearted.  This morning she was up at 5:30 which is far more acceptable as far as waking up is concerned, but Bryan's snoring had woken me an hour earlier.  If this current trend of sleep interruption continues I'm going to be a sleep deprived mess.
Parts of the house are remarkably neat and clean.  Now if I could just get the rest of it straightened and cleaned I'd be thrilled.
In case you haven't heard, JC Penney is giving free haircuts to kids during the month of August.  No strings attached.  I took the girls there on Wednesday.  The stylist was able to undercut Ellie's hair so it doesn't look quite so fluffy.
I'm beginning to wonder if school uniforms aren't more of a hassle than a help.  I'm had the hardest time getting Madeline's short sleeved button down blouses.  I'm pretty sure my fourth attempt at getting the shirts she needs in a size that fits her will be the final time.  On the bright side, I have Ellie's uniform shirts for next year.
Yesterday the school had the uniform company out for their uniform sale day.  I managed to get the summer uniform shirts for Madeline that they uniform company didn't have in stock at the store when we were there last week.
Katie had routine 9 month old blood work done this morning.  Bryan and I were prepared for a struggle and screaming baby, but were shocked at how smoothly everything went.  In less than the time it takes to pray two Hail Marys the blood work was complete and Katie was done crying.
My new laptop arrived yesterday, but for some reason I keep grabbing my old laptop and using that one instead.  I commented to Bryan, who has no sense of smell, that Apple products have a distinct new Apple product smell.  He looked at me like I'm crazy, but they really do.
