I'm a total creeper watching my dear husband sleep. Almost 18 years and I'm still so sappy in love with this guy. #saturdaynap

There are about 25 wasps in our spare (formerly Faith and Abby's; they moved upstairs) bedroom! In this picture they are on the left edge of the window and the wall, on the blue and white birthday card above the window, and in two close groups beneath the balloon art. #yikes #notopeningthedoor

Getting a fair bit of silver in there. I wonder when people will ask me if Perry is my grandson? I expect we'd have to be out alone together. Right now I have too much fat on my face bones to show any wrinkles, but give me time… #ninthbaby #aginglikefinewine

Two to peel the potatoes, one to eat the peels? (Don't worry – that's a new, otherwise empty bin liner.)

We went to the park, which is a demonstration of Clementine's developmental differences like no other. Lots of neurotypical toddlers really show up her ways. #autistiquine

Today would have been my brother's 54th birthday. Four years later and I still go to the phone instinctively to ask for your help. "Hey! Troy would know how to do… Oh. Yeah." I miss you. Happy birthday, big brother

Dates. A study showed that eating six dates a day shortened labor, so I'm eating them. Will it help? Dunno. The study didn't say whether they were fresh dates or dried, for one. It was in the Middle East, so probably fresh. Also, six dates a day is a lot of calories, around 400-500. And they're sugary, pasty things if you try to eat them alone (I can manage one, after that, bleah. I'll nibble through the day.) So! We'll see how I manage. My target is four. My last two labors were very disorganized and I hope this time to progress smoothly instead of herky-jerky. #oldlady #crabbyuterus

The first day of school here looks just like any other day – but today I start recording our reading log as 2016-17. Here we see four of the kids: Gloria is brushing her hair, Faith is reading something on the internet and drinking a cup of tea, Trixie and Dorothy are reading a book and playing with toys. Not pictured are Abby, making 8-bit art on Piskel, Bede writing comics, Gilbert crafting some redstone gizmo on Minecraft, and Clementine pouring her water on the floor and smacking it while laughing uproariously. #unschooling #firstdayofschool

I kinneared these Swedes at McDonald's. There are a couple more guys and some equally tall and fit women too. This is the McDs right off I-35 and we nearly always hear non English tongues here. Spanish, Russian, Korean, Swedish – smack dab in the middle of the US. #everyonelikesmcds
