We’re tired.

We’re really, really tired.

We have a baby, see, and all that hooey about sleeping through the night? Like, “Oh, is she sleeping through the night at three months? Great!” Yeah, it’s crap. Because, for one, the technical definition of “sleeping through the night” is 5 solid hours. Which, by the way, actually sounds pretty awesome because we haven’t seen that large a hunk in nearly three months. But it’s also crap because just because your three month old is sleeping through the night doesn’t mean when she’s four months, or five, or nine, she will be. She might just, say, forget she had any inkling that she knows how to sleep for longer than two hours at any one time.

I’ve decided zucchini bread might have been the original Deceptively Delicious type of recipe. You know, those Trojan Horse dishes that are meant to sneak more vegetables into unsuspecting kids’ (or veggie-averse adults’) diets? Pureed sweet potatoes in the form of “hot chocolate” (I’m looking at a good friend here who tried to get that one past me – ew); butternut squash surreptitiously stirred into macaroni and cheese?

I mean, let’s face it – zucchini bread isn’t really about the zucchini, is it? Sure, it adds cute little green specks, a good amount of moisture, and a nice feeling that you’re eating something made with a vegetable, so it can’t be too fattening. But really, it’s not like you tuck into a slice and rave about that powerful punch of pure zucchini flavor. At least, I don’t … but I’m definitely open to the idea that that might just be me.

Sometimes a vacation is really, really in order. Like a wonderful trip to Hawaii, for instance {pause for day-dreamy sigh}.

Unfortunately, the times when a vacation is very very much needed often coincide directly with the times in which it’s utterly impossible. This, I think, would be one of those times. So I’ll close my eyes and dream of swaying palm trees, sunlight on my face and sugar-sand beaches.
