Fluttering a little late this week...

I'm sorry to say that I will be a little late in sharing my FBW creation. Mommy duty has taken up a lot of time and I haven't been able to do much else.

The challenge this week is a recipe one - you need to have the following on your creation:
  • The color blue
  • lace
  • 3 or more flowers
  • at least one butterfly
With everything else going on, my brain just couldn't completely wrap around the "recipe". Hopefully something will come to me so I can share it...

Visit the FBW blog to see some wonderful inspiration and to play along!

On a side note, I really thought that sleeping would be easier with an 8 yr old. However, Abby hasn't slept through the night in the last week or so. There have been some changes that may contribute but for the most part she is scared of her own house. We've lived here over 3 years and she acts as though it was just yesterday. I don't know how to get her to understand she is safe and that we (her parents) will protect her. It's a struggle and I'm in need of ANY suggestions on how to help her. It started that she was afraid of going down the hall to the bathroom by herself and now it's affecting her sleep. It's usually around 3am and lasts all morning. I thought it was a phase but it's lasting a LOT longer than I would expect.

Hi Michelle, I had panic attacks as a child - usually in the middle of the night. As I got older they settled into really bad dreams - again at about 3 in the morning. I finally figured out that anything with high fructose corn syrup caused them. I seem to have a problem with regular sugar too, I finally went off that about 3 weeks ago and I've been sleeping through the night ever since. Just a thought! : )
