Ok, new thread time!

yay! I'm curious

Glad the sitter is going well and that is neat that she is a MDC mom.

I don't have a daily sitter, but I am really thankful to have my in-laws and brother and his girlfriend nearby since I have sitters when needed, though not on a daily basis.

We had a bunch of fun at the Aquarium today, Desmond enjoyed looking at the "dish". I have pictures up at my blog. It has been a nice weekend all and all.

Hi everyone,

It's amazing what happens in a month... Chloe was hardly walking at the beginning of May and now she is running all over the place.

Unfortunately, she's often running to the bathroom to play with the toilet water

Feels more like we have a toddler in the house!

No clue but all our toilets have locks on them now thanks to the whole toddler and toilet water thing. The toilet is the first thing Desmond heads to when he sees a bathroom door open.

Serenetii! I've been wondering where you've been! Nice to see you

So, I think Arlo ate a snail.He likes to put them in his mouth when no one is looking, and today when I was sweeping the floor I could hear him kinda gagging, and when I looked he started coughing and crying and then he puked a bit and I could see all this crushed up shell! Gross! Anyway, do you think eating a snail is gonna make him sick or anything?? Should I take him to the doc or just wait and see. He seems fine btw. Gah, I nearly puked myself. I can't imagine crunching up a snail and eating it. Eeeeeeew!

First off ewww eww eww, second people do eat snails, though not the shell part so I would assume he will be okay, but can't hurt to call the doctor if you are worried.



Last night over here was "fun" Desmond has actually been going to bed around 9/9:30 lately which is nice (it will be nicer when we transition him into his own bed so I can leave once he's asleep, but still nice now). Last night he woke at 1:30am with a wet diaper so I changed it, but he won't go back to sleep so I went ahead and nursed him, even I really am trying not to nurse him before 4am. He stopped nursing and the was wet again so he got changed again, but he won't sleep, he didn't want to get up either, eventually after an hour and a half or so of intermittent crying and nursing he finally went back to sleep, sigh.

Poor Arlo! I would just wait and watch him for now. Maybe he will learn not to eat them...or maybe not. Do you think you have a future French chef on your hands?


And I was planning on watching LOST this weekend. It didn't record!!!! So now I have to pull it up on the computer sometime and watch it there. We had a storm that night and I think the baby sitter turned the TV on and something must have happened. Rats.

the french do it. i woulda puked . if it were me i would have freaked out and called the doc or ask-a-nurse or something to ask their opinion or even searched online for info. i have heard some snails can make you sick. but if he seems fine, i would keep an eye out for fever, diarrhes etc.

anybody else have climbers? DD climbs everything. she trys to climb up on the toilet and the table. if there is a chair in front of it she will try to climb it. i have to keep her constantly interested in what i am doing to keep her off of stuff. she started walking at 10 months. she has even tried to climb up her sisters bunk bed ladder.

We've got a climber. Here is my blog post about him climbing in April. He will climb anything he can find, we've found him on top of the dining room table, on DH's desk, trying to climb the bookshelf, sitting happily in the rocking chair (semi high up), etc etc, we have to make sure there is nothing that he can use to boost himself up onto chairs etc and we have to keep a good eye on him still, because he will find some way to climb up, even if we think we don't have anything around that will work.

I think that many calcium supplements are shell-based, but yick!

So there's an application sitting on the mantle for a vegetarian co-op house (pretty much another name for commune) : How many hippy points would that be? We're totally torn about pursuing it, but there are so many positives and negatives that I don't know where it would balance out.
Help!

tell us more! sounds interesting. dh would not be into that...but i think i would. we've always dreamed of buying a huge chunk of land (yah right ) and having like-minded people buy pieces of it...turning it into a land co-op of sorts. buuuut. land is so expensive and dh is changing so i doubt that will happen.

Mine's a climber, too. She started walking at 9 months and I am constantly pulling her off the counter. Her favorite lately is to stand up rock on the rocking chair.

What are the pluses and minuses? Would you be living in a large house with lots of people, or have your own living space?
