Ack! It's August Already, PDX Mamas!

post #1 of 2000

Old Thread

Have a I ever mentioned that Nico goes to sleep when he hears my alarm clock? And is frequently awake for at least a full hour before? : Apparently, he does this in August as well.

Happy August. Mmmm, what is that? The faintest little whiff of Halloween. :

ugh Mad was up and down last night, going pee (okay it's a good thing she wakes to go pee instead of sleeping though it), but then she wanted to play, stood at the top of the stairs crying for me, which woke me and I told her it was time to sleep. She wanted to watch cartoons and I said that it wasn't cartoon time. I fell back asleep, woke up to her needing to put her pjs back on. Noticed that the light was on in her room. I don't know how Carson slept through it.

Happy August! Jake woke up at 6am wanting to celebrate August I think it has something to do with him going to bed at 7:30 last night.

Yah, I kind of wonder if Nico wouldn't be waking up, and I mean wide awaking, at 3am if he wasn't going to sleep at 7. They seem to be related... but I so like the early bedtime! What to do...

Talula also thought 6 a.m. was an awesome time to wake up.

I smell that faint Halloween smell too. :

: Good luck Eliza!!

My house is bigger than that so I am sure it would be more expensive than that.

So any idea's how to keep a 21 month old from playing with the plugs? He pulls the outlet covers out, he unplugs and plugs back in anything that is plugged in. None of my children have been as fascinated with outlets as him.

Yeay!! It's almost fall!!


OH yea I have another question I wanted to ask last night.. but I was tired and forgot.

I made jam for the first time. I am pretty sure it turned out good. Jars are sealed... it looks like it set... but the directions say to remove the bands and store in a cool dark place. Why would you remove the bands? Once you open it, how do you re-close it if you remove the bands? I am confused.

If they sealed correctly then taking off the bands (NOT the lids) will not affect what you have in them. If they didn't seal correctly then what is in them will get gross whether or not you take off the bands
FWIW I never take the bands off what I can.


Oh, happy August!

Chase does this too. We bought some outlet plug covers that fit over the plugged-in cords and prevent him pulling them out. In other places, we've put furniture (couch, bookcases) in front of the outlet.

I've never heard this advice. Nor have I ever done this when making jam. But the lid part is what seals the jar, so you don't really NEED the bands until you break the seal. Then the band holds the lid on.

i had like NO sleep last night. between Niamh staying up til 3. then slightly drifiting off, then Addy waking for water, a BAJILLION freaking times, (ok maybe she does drink too much water) and Morgan getting up for work at 5:15, then Addy being up, and wanting to conversate.
i am exhausted. i really feel a lil loopy.
hopefully my mom can chill with Addy later while Niamh and i nap.

i too smell candycorn and pumpkinseeds. :

And yes. VERY tired this morning. Thought I had enough flour to make bagels, discovered I don't... before I got dressed, so I have this VERY wet dough proofing in the oven... Guess I'm going to the damn store in my jammies.

I'm smelling pumpkin pie this morning. Mmmm...

Would there be any interest in a HFCS free halloween celebration? I'm thinking of doing one this year.
