Uh oh, I don't want to be kicked out of our DDC for not being crunchy enough...

Ok the scribble makes sense, whew. I had my phone on airplane mode while Sora enjoyed Snap-scribbling but apparently when I turned airplane mode off, I sent the snap with a single tap.

I'm actually surprised I scored so low, with the breastfeeding other peoples babies, co-sleeping, healthy food, and cloth diapering.  Not sure what got me.  Maybe the home birth questions. 

 

Jaimee- I was not trying to be judgy either.  My girls have been NOTHING like DS.  He climbed onto the counters, put the cat in the dryer, and bit quite literally EVERY child he came across for 2 years.  He was a terrorist in a different way than B is.  I couldn't just say "Don't do that" I had to hover parent and say it 5,000 before he realized I was serious. But I did it all 5,000 times and eventually he quit trying.   I remember purposely not going to peoples houses because he would destroy everything in his path.  Some kids are just hard.  BUT at the same time it is hard to find the balance between paying special attention to that uber-destructive kid, and finding ways to make sure the other children in the family can continue to have access to the things they need to develop their own skills. Does that make sense?

I don't think there's any risk of that.

I'd probably be the first to go. ROTFLMAO.gif

I broke the bottom of the zipper on this stupid jacket I have been working on all day.  It only needs the sleeves and collar now, but Im waiting to finish the bottom because I want to see if I can fix the zipper or if I have to put in a new one. 

 

Joanie its cold here too.  Like 35-45 cold, and really foggy.

 

The kids are really excited to have pumpkin pancakes for dinner.  I think its because they don't realize I'm actually just putting vegetables in the pancakes...

Pumpkin veggie-filled pancakes sound pretty ingenius, Ash.

I wish I could get Sora to eat something healthy while she's sick. She has no appetite. I'm trying to withhold milk from her cuz it increases mucous production and she has the worst chest congestion already.

Squash pancakes, pumpkin pancakes, add a little zucchini or sweet potato, they never know.  You should try it for Sora!

Joanie, the most recent study I've seen says milk isn't mucinogenic. Feeling sick is crappy.

Ash, broken zipper? That bites. Hopefully you can figure it out.

That brings back memories of my friends in school for fashion design. Apparently the most maddening thing ever was if they'd break an invisible zipper on a dress. Lol.

I was going through my pictures and found this one of A spontaneously helping. I'm not sure if I shared it as a snap or not. Lol.


I finally got to make my cakes. I stacked them to fit them all in the toaster oven and the top ones expanded onto the heating element. ROTFLMAO.gif

LOL Sara, too funny @ the cakes.
post #1593 of 2728
Wait, I want cake now. Grr. No cake here.

Abra's chocolate dessert texts look way too yummy too.

I just painted my fingernails. And straightened my hair. That bored.

The cake has 4 ingredients and takes 5 minutes to get it in the oven.
post #1596 of 2728
Um, plz share the ingredients!

Ash, I just got your jacket snap. Holy crap, how do you DO such things?! It looks incredible! Did that seriously take you just 2 or so days? Crazytown. love.
post #1597 of 2728

Thanks, yes it took two days but I spent a good 6 hours on it just TODAY.  Her costume is pretty spot on to what she wanted, though.

post #1598 of 2728
The jacket is awesome.

Joanie, half a stick of butter and a cup of chocolate chips in a bowl. 3 eggs and half a cup of sugar in another. Stir the eggs and sugar. Melt the chocolate 30 seconds at a time in the microwave. Combine the two bowls of yum. Put it into ramekins and bake 20 minutes at 350 or until the center is set. Yum.

Ash! Post a pic of the jacket here!

 

Sara, those cakes, omg.  How are things at home these days?

 

Joanie, so sorry you guys are sick.  I can't believe it's sick season already.

 

Jaimee, wow lots to consider with your kids.  I can only imagine how difficult it is to juggle those three personalities and try and make it come out equal for everybody.  I was a nanny for 3 kids, two of whom were twins (I was with them from when they were 2 days old!), and the last was a boy who was 2.5 years older.  They were all SO different and it was SO challenging trying to be fair to everyone.  I'm glad you can talk it all through here. 

 

I got 161 on the crunchy test.

 

KJ's sleep has been a million times better the last 2 nights, although I'm certain I just jinxed it by mentioning that.

 

I was thinking of Amanda last night under that gorgeous moon!

This is the costume. I need to take the center knot up a bit because the front is low. And add decorative snaps to the jacket. Everything but the jacket only took an hour. But that jacket made me not want to sew for a LONG time. Which is a joke becausey niece is coming over for me to make her costume tomorrow
