We sort of do Santa. LOL Delia knows about him, and is toying with the "is he real" concept. She asked me today and I said "he can be if you want him to." I was trying to avoid saying "No, he's not real" and then my husband was upset that I was wishy washy about it but yeah, I'm not going to lie and build it all up. I'm attempting not to ruin it for her, yet not be fake at the same time. As with all things, I'm just muddling my way through.
Why is that it's AFTER a long time of her getting a horrible diet and being a total BRAT BRAT BRAT for a week that I realize she's been getting little else than sugar?! Ugh. And it builds on itself, to the point of today where all she was wanting was horrible horribly candy, marshmallows, etc. Gross.
I made a chore chart for our household. After one day I'm in a better mood already.
Without a chart, the other people in my house don't seem to realize there's any chores to be done.
We took Henry to a well baby visit today. 7 months old. He was 29" long and 22 pounds 9 ounces. Around the 95%ile on both counts, but who knows which charts they use, and who cares?!
Teeth are coming, daytime sleep is rare lately.
Henry pulled a little fake christmas tree onto himself. twice. LOL One time it was off a low shelf, and then I put it on the floor and he tipped it over on himself. It's like 3' tall maybe? Big enough to be a little dangerous, but not too bad. Now we set it up in Delia's room and I won't even get started on her brattiness not sleeping in her room lately and making going to sleep a nightmare! No more sugar for her.
Tomorrow my goal is to not do too much multi-tasking. When I have kids, no computer. Just laundry.
And enjoy the kids. And make and eat good food. I need to keep a nibble tray out for Delia. She's been not eating and then 20 minutes after we're done says "I'm hungry" ARGH So, nibble tray with VEGGIES it is!!
