Well we are just plain broke but Bama if I ever go see my cousin I will come and see you! I went on a roadtrip with a friend once and I had so much fun but we were so tired! And I'm not good with a map! We went to Georgia and when we got to Newyork for gas this maine hick was SCARED!!!!! The big Mall in Georgia was amazing our mall just has stuff to buy not a playground and carosel (SP!!)

(9/11) I was a childless woman and at work. I didn't really understand what was happening at all! I just remember wondering what was going on! All this with the airports now is just insane! We have come to the point of it just being so out there! I can't understand why these people want to kill us so badly! I mean seriously! Go to work and take care of your children and leave us alone!

Well the doc said that Nolan can't have claritin. So you gave this to your child and it was working on runny nose and sneezing? He also has big poofy eyes. Poor poor little man! We have been giving him some herb but I dunno what else to do.

Well glad your home Emmy I have to get Ali ready for Gymnastics now.

Thanks for asking! I think I'm leveling out, and I'm not too worried anymore. I increased my water intake exponentially, and cut out just about all caffeine...I cut out drinking just about anything except water, truth be told And that has seemed to help a lot.

arg bonnie...just ignore the doc,. they like to say stuff like that for liability purposes./..You can just do the math on the weight, and give him that dose.

claritin is clinically safe for 2 and up, and very few meds are..so just so you know, you can cut the dose for a two yr old in half and go from there.

I'm surviving my vacation. Dh is horribly sick with a cold. He's so lucky that I'm at home so he can sleep.

Sorry to hear about the morning sickness, Anne. I'm just occasionaly nauseous so far. It usually doesn't hit until 6-7 weeks for me. It hit last night when I took all 3 girls to the county fair by myself and my family asked if I was feeling all right. I get motion sick really easily (they are know that) so I blamed it on watching the rides go around and around.

We had fun at the fair. I will have to down load the pictures and get them on my blog. Maddie won best of show (and $5) for her mints. Ellsia got a 2nd. They each got a 3rd for their cucumbers. Next year I want to enter this great photo I have of Ellysia. I printed it out in sepia and they only want color or black and white, so maybe next year.

I've only got a few minutes left. Dh gave me 30. Poor boy.

ps: where's the pic of Hilger in his skirt????

hilger rocks!

Claire got up at 5 and I gave her a bottle and put her back to bed because I so wanted a bit more sleep. She's still sleeping. Poor girl is worn out from mom being home and dragging her every where.

Hi Mamas,

I've been lurking, but SOOO busy at work My Manager is not here today, so I can finally post

Anne - Hope the morning sickness goes away soon.

Bamamom - Kat's fully adjusted to daycare, and loves playing. You were right on. There was lots of crying (both her and I) but now we're great.

La Mamita - Good recommendation on the Unconditional Parenting book. It was an interesting read.

I'm planning on purchasing Mothering - Nursing Your Toddler. Anyone read it? Should I buy it?

Kat's doing well. She is walking everywhere and just learned to say 'more'. I finally put her in a dress . http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e3...neHayley27.jpg

Other than that, Toronto is super hot. My office finally had its A/C fixed...

Oh, a question for the Mamas. Is there anyone that has not had AF yet? Mine has not returned.

Mommy to Katherine (June '05) , Calvin (born an angel on January 25, 2009 at 29.5 weeks gestation) , and Samuel and Sabrina (December '09)

kat's mommy: glad to hear that daycare is going better. af has come and now gone again. Are you hinting that you haven't had one? What is your nursing schedule like?

Claire: less of a temp today. No puking today. She definitely has less energy than usual. DH is still sleeping from his cold. He has tomorrow to sleep and them I'm back to work. Maybe we'll see if the neighbor girl could come over for a couple of hours to give him a break on Monday.

No AF for me, either...not sure if that's Mirena related or nursing related. Cully nurses about the same as Sam did at this age and I didn't get it back with her til she was about 18 months, IIRC.

AF came yesterday for me. Oh well. At least this way I can drink mojitos while we're on vacation next week!

Kat's Mommy, I can't recommend a knitting book but I can advise you to do what I did, which is to go to a book store and sit down and flip through several. I find it very difficult to learn from diagrams in a book, so I spent time looking to see which way of drawing and explanation made the most sense to me. I wound up with "Crocheting for Dummies" which seems so banal, but it was the best for me! I'm hoping to graduate to some much cooler books for patterns when I really get going.

Also, I read "Mothering Your Nursing Toddler" but I borrowed mine from an LLL library -- don't see the need to really own it. But well worth reading.

It's kind of quiet and rainy here. Off to church tomorrow to show my face and hold my head high after last week's performance ... and am hoping to meet Mamita after that. Fingers crossed!

I'm nursing Kat in the morning, when I return from work, and all night (if needed), and of course, anytime on the weekends. She still wakes up 2-4 times per night, and I usually end up nursing her back to sleep.

Good idea about checking out different knitting books. I've only been able to cast on...then I get lost and confused : My goal this year is to do something productive.

What's the difference between crocheting and knitting?

Hopefully we will be checking out the jazz festival tomorrow...here's hoping for good weather because it's supposed to be :

Three kids is not my idea of a good time. Atleast not at the ages mine are at. I think if I do have another I will space them more that Ali and Nolan are spaced!:

My daughter had her open house at SCHOOL!!!!! I have to put her on a bus starting on the 30th. I sure wish I had a car because I would transport. The bus makes me nervous!

Well Nolan is getting all emotional got to go hope all is well!

Kat'smommy, that's exactly how we nurse. In the morning when we wake up, after work, and then whenever else she wants it till the morning.

Re: crocheting vs knitting. I'm pretty proficient at crocheting. I know the basics of knitting but I really jsut do not enjoy it, so I never got further than the basics. I can crochet just about anything, though. The major difference is that with knitting, you use two needles, but in crocheting, you use one hook. It was just easier for me to pick up crocheting, but I know a lot of people who prefer to knit. It's all a personal preference, like everything else.

I'm on my third or fourth post partum AF as we speak. is WAY different than before having a baby. First off, I have an average of a 34 day cycle, as opposed to my 28-29 day cycle prenatally. I'm also totally wiped out the first day. NO energy whatsoever. Yesterday was cd1 and I made DH take Joey with him to his parents house all day so I could relax, clean a bit, and relax some more. In a little while, I'm going to ask him to take her outside and play with her so I can relax some more. Although, right now, she's playing in her toy room all by herself quite nicely.

A family of Canadian geese has adopted the yard next to my house. I can watch them out my living room window. Geese are such good parents.
