Evening. I still say evening even though it's 1230am bc the sun hasn't risen yet...
It was 94 here today....the heat index tomorrow is supposed to be near 100
I swear Ohio has 2 seasons.....winter and summer.
The girls I care for on Friday's will be here tomorrow for the first time in 3 weeks. They were on vacation with their grandparents for 3 weeks. I don't know if I could be away from my 8mo old for 3 weeks....maybe my 4yo with the attitude she's had.....Ok, maybe not but you know what I me an...
The 2yo is a dream. The 8mo old just cries and cries.....it's hard but it's my job so. They are the only family to follow me over from the move. I'm only 6 min further away and the 2 other families lived a few minutes from me but oh well. It gives me more time to unpack.....but lessens my available coop money...teehee...
Here's my website if anyone cares to take a gander at it...http://www.freewebs.com/gooseysmom/
I went from 10 years in the food and bev business as a pub owner and bartender to childcare....my body still tries to keep the bar hours though making mornings rough sometimes....the girls don't come until 9 these days so that's good for me!!
SO, that's what I am doing tomorrow. I hope I am not as tired as I was today. My neck revolted against my head and I ended up napping with Lilah (who her sister has been calling Mouse...) a bit this afternoon while dd1 watched a cartoon on Noggin. It was sooo nice.
mommaj: I almost bought the Playmobil pirate set for dd1 for her birthday but they were sold out where I went to get it. She's all about pirates and dinos these days.....in her tutu's....
green: Happy he is ok. I swear dd1's head is made of steel from all the times in the past 4 years of her life I have bonked it when wearing her OR her bonking it...there are times she's run into something with it, that her father and I just gasp in pain ourselves and she just keeps keeping on unphased by it.
jeanine: I totally thought of you today while dd1 and I were browsing through the latest Oriental Trading catalog....loads o pirate booty...
Katie: Yay early birthday presents. I long for a serger (but want a magic serger threading fairy)...I need to get some new needles for my machine as I broke the last one rushing through something in April. I have a bunch of sewing that needs done....and now I have a room to do it in....Can't wait to see yer projects.
Wendi: Thanks for the big hug. I needed it today!!
2 to you too.....Your post made me smile today.
I was talking to my friend today and gypsies came up and dd asked what they were. LOL.....I gave her a brief toddler appropriate version and on her way she went. She was pretty good today....less attitude but it was still there. She has this new thing of picking up her sister and bringing her to me if she's crying on the floor (sitting).....it's pretty hilarious. She'll pick her up with her arms wrapped around her and it's like the baby is glued to her belly facing out with wiggly arms and legs. L has the biggest grin on her face the entire time and looks up at me with her sweet big trusting eyes.....and I snatch her up and she giggles....I tell dd1 thank you but she needs to not pick her up bc if she dropped her, she could get really hurt and sometimes I need to go potty by myself which is why I sit her down with her toys so I can go......I was met at the bottom of the stairs after dinner with her holding her sister saying, "See, it's ok. There's the missing mommy..." Oy......
I was upstairs bc the genius who put the thermostat in the CENTER OF THE MAIN WALL DOWNSTAIRS put BOTH bathrooms upstairs.....
Unpacking is well.......I'm trying to WILL them to unpack. I did get Dh to carry some of the heavier boxes upstairs that belong in dd1's room which is easier for me. We "talked" about the fact that he put dsd's bed together AND made it to get it ready for her but put dd1 to bed on a bed WITHOUT sheets and just tossed a sheet over her. It made me soooo
: I mean, if you can put together and make dsd's bed, you sure as heck can make and put together dd1's bed right???
Anyhoo....that's all that's up here. Nothing new. I need to hop into bed but that nap earlier did me in for a bit so I'll be up for a few more.
