Hey now mamas! Glad everyone's back home (or on their way home) and enjoyed their weekends. We had a good hang this weekend. We did go see Madagascar, Loved it! Beca laughed and laughed, and dh and I also chuckled quite a bit. Ori was a DOLL and watched, ate, slept, watched and then poof! It was over! Today I got to sneak away for a few hrs. and see star wars (good day for it - he spent from 10am - 2pm fussing and not happy - not howling too much, just fussing and sad
). I always want to see these kinds of movies on the big screen. This one was the least wonderful of the new ones, for sure. And nothing on the old ones, imo.
Thank you for the bread machine rec! I'm going to look and see what Target has tomorrow (while I'm at Joanne's getting faux fur!).
Az - Six Flags - that's right - sounds great! I highly rec. doing this w/the dh's (if your's is into the rides), 'cause there are some the kids won't beable to go on w/out an adult. Maybe the guys will bond, too?! Let me know a date the first two weeks of July that would work for you and I'll have dh schedule it off. I think that family plan is worth it if we all go. Can we get it online? I'll repeat, the place is PACKED on weekends. NOT WORTH GOING! Can dh schedule a day off? We could also do the last week of June (from the 28th on).
Karen - bummer bout Noam. I'm glad he's a HAPPY sick kid!
: Sounds like a crazy trip, but you got it all done and enjoyed it, eh! Love your climbing monkeys! Great pics - thanks for sharing! Noam looks like a little soccer player, do you think they're not into sports because they don't have too many teams around to join? I'm just guessing at that, actually, because you're kinda out in the sticks on an island with a fairly small population. They sure look like athletic little people!
Lisa - how can you put socks on the wrong feet?
. If it's possible, dh's are the ones to figure out a way! WTG on getting the problem foods down to 2! Now you're in the target area. I sure hope it's corn, 'cause wheat is a lot harder to live w/o, imo. But either is a tough one to lose...
Nicole - didja get anything good on your shopping journey? My dh is SUCH a bad shopper, I always just send him on his way and he's back in like 30 min. with whatever he was looking for, just never the best price, or kinda ugly colors. whatever... I hope you had more fun than THAT! Are you out by the coast? That's the other place we were thinking of going this summer for a break, but at $1000/wk it's too rich for our blood!
Laura - he he he on dh. My dh read that and said - what a slacker! What's he been doing for 4 months? Good point. What HAS he been doing for 4 months. Meanwhile, mine still puts diapers on backwards, forgets the wrap, and USUALLY (but not every single time) puts the few remaining onesies w/snaps on over the pants :LOL! Was today your birthday??? Did I miss the WHY part of why dh is doing this for you?
Hi Joyce! No blood is good. Still goopy - many of these allergens take a while to get out of your milk, and also out of her body. You are AWESOME for catching this and trying to get it under control. Not easy. I had the yummiest spelt french toast today! It's really got me thinking I'm going to survive no dairy and no wheat. Probably. And loving a chocolate Art bar (come w/a card about an artist and it's SOOOOO yummmmm). This one had coconut...
Kathy - hope you got some coffee injected and enjoyed the day! I always try to get a couple of extra hrs. in the am while Ori sleeps. I'm grumpy otherwise. I go and mess up someone else's bed, usually, so he and I can both sleep. That's great that you get her on your back so well. Everytime I try Ori slips down to low, or he falls off and cries, or he falls off and doesn't cry but I cry... it's kinda mucky. I had him at the Memorial Day parade today in our little town here and he had a GREAT time! Watched the cgo-carts, the karate kids (who stop each block and break boards), the clowns (no reaction at all), his sister and daddy (yeaaa!!) and the BIIIIIIG aquaduck w/all the quackers...what fun! Then he fussed, ate, and satched till the end. What a great kid!
Ann - Life of Pi was great. Say hi to the tiger for me! YEA on the new sewing machine! What inspired the gift? late birthday? It's so great to hear another voice confirm that V. is otherwise in GREAT shape. She really looks like a sharp little cookie... just a very quiet one. Profound deafness is sometimes easier to deal with because the person compensates so quickly. By 2 or 3 she'll probably a fluent lip reader. Was it Laura who's brother is deaf? Was he from birth?
Oh, one more thing - how did you know the yarn Az found was cotton? It didn't say...so one must assume it's cotton if it doesn't say?
Karen - skin rashes are rarely dairy, they are almost always intestinal.. It could be either nut or peanut, or wheat or corn or egg, possibly cirtus. Trying to get the wheat out first would tell you if it was/wasn't that...kwim? Kinda reverse elim. diet psychology... wishing you luck!
Jessi - Beca is a platypus in her school play next month, so I have to come up w/a costume...YIKES! I've got a plan, but it's kinda sketchy still. Got any platypus diapers? I seeee you've been ddddc'd too! Ha! You stalker, you!
Kinda funny that noone has figured it out. My guess is Heidi (not sure why...except she just sold some stuff and has $$ in her paypal acc't just burning a hole in her cyber pocket!).
CAN we cheat on the hunt? Maybe we need to have a hunt thread...or is this exclusive to the Babylicious girls? Sure is a lot of time to get to looking through at LEAST 400 pages of internet stuff ... whew! I'm tired just thinking about it! Starts tomorrow, right? Has anyone figured out where the list of sites to visit is???
Ok, feeling slightly caught up. Two baskets of laundry need folding, the dishes are piled in the sink (tho dh emptied the washer, so that's something!), and dh and I still haven't had dinner. sigh. Have a good night - if I can I'll check in later. xxx andy
