okay, left-0handed so it'll be short and messy.
rynna- i'll let you know the nrxt time i see a stockmar/mercurious buy. in fact, o'm tempted to organize one because all you have to do is be a homeschool group and buy like $250? worth of stuiff. i got the block beeswax crayons for lazlo to help him learn how to hold his pencil, and they are yummy!! linnaea prefers markers but she'll use them too, i think the 12 color box was like $8?
also, biology is HUGE for our baby making desires. it's totally like that core reptilian brain telling you to make as many as you can to get those genes passed on! my grandma had eight kids and they are mostly messed up but eaqch of them had at least two kids and really, it's not great for the species as a whole (mopstly drugs and alcohol reaons) but it's great for my grandparent's irish/english genes
yay senara and loetters!! linnaea knows quite a few animals like, she sees our chicken toy and goes "bwock bwock" or a roar for lion or dinosaur. no ;etters yet but she loves reading books and will grab my finger to point to something she wants the word for.
i'm bummed about the lack of balance too, three is just NOT good number for me and 4 is my lucky number (and mine and bear's birthday
)but there is no way i am ever going to have 4. in fact, i think we're going to start a fund for "stopping the red-haired madness!" so that i can afford the essure thing. it kind of freaks me out because my dh so obviously has super sperm that i'm afraid i'll totally be the one person it fails for and have a tubal pregnancy but we can NOT handle 4 (still not quite sure we can handle 3 and the test is actually tomorrow morning at 9 so i _could_ still just be late, like 1-1/2 weeks but maybe, ya know, just maybe?
emily- so sorry about your loss! my dh lost a close friend and my friend lost her uncle, it really seems like a big month for passing on.
julie- your "school" sounds way better than the uh, "real"
thing. i hear you about knowing you're done. my mom had thought i was getting my tubes tied after two and i just wasn't _that_ sure (then she made some comment about having a litter
which is so weird for her because she totally supports kids and all that.... but now, i'm completely and 100000% sure that three is all i can handle and i'm not even sure my mate will be able to handle more than 2 at a time.
teeny- yay cow share!! if i could find anything similar i'd be all over it
ema- i hope your flight goes well! and that you all have a great vacation!!!!
in other news, linnaea has cavities
one in her front tooth and two behind her side teeth. plus they chip super easily, i think she has three missing pieces. i'm feeding her raw cheese and taking my clo and brush9ing her teeth with probiotics and hoping i qualify for state health care because this would wipe out our meager savings plus be super traumatic and i don't want to night wean but i'm considering it. i think the lack of milk has just had her nursing all the time when she's sleeping. i'm also considering the $50 butter oil to try and remineralize them. bleh. and i've been so good about brushing and flossing!
OH!! and funny 4/1 joke? i went to ban someone but figured i should enter in my username first to see what happened and then i ended up banning myself anyway! ha!
