Elliesmomma & kgianforti
-- Welcome to the thread! Like ecoteat
said, it's been 4 years! I hope it lasts for awhile to come Sydnee-
-woohoo! Have lots and lots of fun!Txmom
--I hope you enjoy being a lactation consultant. My mom has been one for over 20 years and it seems very fulfilling.max
--Wow! That sounds really exciting! Will you hit up every state? If you go to VT, I know all the best places to go in the southeastern & northern parts of the state (it's where I grew up/went to college)...and don't let anyone tell you to go during foliage, because there are too many tourists "leaf peepers" then (besides, the foliage is just as beautiful in other states with maples...
--I hope you feel better soon. Being laid up is no fun unless someone is waiting on you hand and foot...and even then it gets boring (at least for me).
--I'm glad Phoebe is feeling better.
Doing ok here. Orion isn't sick anymore...but now the little one has it. And you can't give cough strips to a 14m old, but it's really torture listening to him cough.
I'm so glad I'm still bf'ing. You know, I never thought I would still be breastfeeding--and tandem nursing!--but I've had to eat my words. It's happened...I'm turning into my mother (eek! well just in that regard). I nursed til I was 5...now Orion is 4 and still nursing. Now I just have to become a lactation consultant and a lamaze teacher and I really *will* be my mother
-- that's not gonna happen! (Although I'd like to become a doula at some point) Alright enough of me talking about my mother.
This summer we are building our new house -- yay!
I'm getting a craft/office room and a *washer*! The only thing I'm sad about is the fact that dp wants to build it on my "sacred grove"...I guess it's ok, as long as he doesn't cut down the aspens I love too. He already cut down the birch & willow circle in the front of the house because it was annoying to drive around, but I really miss it. It just seems so empty out there now...at least I'm not backing into trees anymore (I guess I could have learned to back up better). He wants to cut down the willow tree in front of the house cause it's covered in lichen even though it's still alive...I love that tree.
Ok enough whining!
Is anyone gardening this year with the kids?
