I took dd1 to her dance class this evening. I was able to work out alterations on costumes for discounted classes and there is a mom there who's little girl has taken the same classes with dd the past 3 seasons who asked if I had bought new ballet shoes yet and I mentioned that I was going to this weekend and she said not too bc her dd had just outgrown her practically new shoes and she'd bring them to me to use. She said I could pay by springing for ice cream next week if the girls do well in class (they always do and it will be a fun outting for the girls).....
I came home and checked my mail...
: Unexpected joy and love from friends...good cheer all around. I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful friends (esp the ones who live far away but still find the time to send love and cheer).....and esp my friends here. SO loved, so blessed. We are all so lucky to have each other in our lives....
I have a childcare interview tomorrow. I've gotten the house decent enough and I really need some better income than what I have now. If this family hires me, it will be enough to send dd1 to the Waldorf school down the way from mom's part-time and start to tuck some more away... I've checked it out and dd has visited and can't stop talking about it. She's excited to maybe start so...the interview is at 5:45 tomorrow evening.Heather
: I'm so sorry to hear of your friends passing. If there is anything we can do......Wendi
: Whine away mama
It has to be a big adjustment for everyone......I can't even imagine. PM or email me. You've been a great ear/shoulder for me this last year.Jess:
It has to be hard to see Jack moving on with someone else so soon and so close to the anniversary. But if he's happy, then that's what matters.....he's found someone who loves him and the boys. I am sure Jess is smiling down. Big hugs to you mama. PM me if you need to chat too.Kelly
: We had a nice time. It will be awhile before I have a place of my own and hopefully it won't come to that bc Dp will realize how much he needs us. I'm choosing to stay optimistic at this point. We will see him Friday for a bit.Mommaj
: See us when we're sleeping......
: Yay for running! I've tried my hand at it and it's a no go. But get me in a boat and I can row away.....I have a wall squat/giggler too. It's hilarious. Raisins are a fave in my house. Dp was always like she's gonna choke and I was like she has molars, she's good.Nikki
: No biting here but
for that...we have the face grabbing, pinching, finger in my mouth while feeling up the other boob thing going on here.....nursing necklaces bore her and she pushes them out of the way......I can tuck one of her arms btwn us but that's not the one that's all free range....
: Oh no on the signing milk when you set him down after biting. Talk about tug at the heartstrings. Lilah is trying to give up daytime naps. Her sister did cold turkey at 22 months. I am hoping she holds out......She did today though walk over to the swing, plop dd1's baby in it and tried to climb in it while looking at me with the saddest face.....So I went over, plopped her in, turned on the waves and out she went.Falicia:
How is Chaya feeling? I wasn't able to get back online and then did and forgot. The dose of Mucinex my ped gave me for Lilah was 2ml (just under the lowest measure line on the cup that comes with it). She is pretty anti-abx and such and very natural but said sometimes snot just needs thinned out in infants which is why they have the guides for weight and such. I hope she is feeling better and doesn't need it. Hugs for molars. We are still working on the SIX we're getting here. 5 have poked through very well and are on their way though. Total of 14 when they come all the way. Mmmmmm fresh mozzerella.....mmmmmmm......Michelle
: I have given her a bit of cow's milk but very watered down. She loves yogurt and cheese but I don't keep cheese around a whole lot right now bc her big sister will eat the whole block of it (with NO adverse affects...)...
I have a friend though who has a working farm and the milk she's had thus far is raw milk.
Yay for another baby maybe!!! I
: seeing Lilah with her big sister!!! I sent you a pm. Awe and thanks!
