Ghetto Bird

As I put the girls to bed tonight the ghetto bird kept coming around. A ghetto bird, for those of you from more privileged backgrounds, is a police helicopter which flies low shining lights into people's backyards as they search for fugitives.

That, combined with the firecrackers (in this neighborhood they start about 2 weeks before any given holiday), made it especially hard to get Ivy to fall asleep. And then an hour and a half or so after Violet fell asleep the sounds woke her up. After almost an hour of trying to get Violet to fall back asleep I finally handed her off to my mom to see if she has any luck.

There's no place like home. There's no place like home. There's no place like home.


  1. When my youngest was a baby the people next door where having their house built. That did not bode well for NAPS!!!
