s mama! sorry, it made me chuckle a bit, my 'dh' is just being a 'a'nnoyingh tonight too. I was actually just thinking about you guys yesterday, wondering if there have been any improvments in your relationship or how you were doing, since you haven't mentioned it in awhile.

We're bickering- he gets to relax but I don't. Why is it the computer isn't seen the same as the tv? It's so annoying that he has different rules for him than me.

I wonder if all this nursing stuff we've been talking about is something to do with age or time or something- so many of us are annoyed or tired or low supply or something...I agree with Maximom- I aim to go for a lot longer, but if she self-weaned I wouldn't be upset. (maybe right now I would be- because I know that my annoyance is only temporary and I'd prefer to go longer)

My poor kids are covered in bites. The blackflies aren't as bad now as they were last week, but mosquitos stick around all summer.

They fell asleep after eating ice cream with daddy, and watching tv.

I think I should go to bed!

Indeed, my poor babe's head got it BAD. One bite bled for an hour!

One exciting thing about all the nakey/outdoor time was that we went 30 hours with a dry diaper! The whole trip we used maybe 5. He actually took off his diaper and led us to the door It's not been as good since we've been home, but I'm very close to my once a week laundry dream.
I'm sadly just not an ECer, but 'housebreaking' is suiting me just fine. Hopefully by the time it's cold again, he'll start liking the potty.

that's so annoying. i like the ah idea. the computer IS your tv time.

man, we had worse blackflies than i've ever seen here before...and they love my kids ears. the bites bleed so bad on babies that his little ears looked like bloody messes.
he's had a fever for a couple days and has been so grumpy. teeth, i hope. he's cutting three. (8, 9, 10).

For some reason I thought it was tomorrow, so we were doing our normal planned Saturday stuff before I realized and we never went. Which isn't a bad thing since I really don't need to be spending money, especially after I won this.

It was a nice day here today, tomorrow we are going to see the Fish (Baltimore Aquarium) with my brother, we invited him and his girlfriend along, but she is out of town, so it will just be the 4 of us.

It was fun, but as Abby gets older it gets harder to find clothes for her. There were TONS of baby clothes, but less toddler clothes. My girls had fun!

The aquarium sounds fun! We have yet to go - it is sooo expensive! I haven't been since I was a (older) kid

We have a yearly membership, which is fairly inexpensive considering ticket costs actually, especially since we don't need the family one yet only the couple's one. We figured out that 3rd visit on was free once we bought the membership and we have used it more then that so far this year, which means we'll renew when it comes up in August most likely.

Especially with Desmond really loving to watch "dish" now.

Fish rank above spoons which rank above dogs, at leas they did this afternoon at IKEA.

I looked at the prices - they aren't too bad for a membership! I'll have to talk to DH - he is less of an aquarium enthusiast then the rest of us

So, I don't know if I mentioned to you guys that I'd found someone to watch the kids a couple of days a week and they love going there. Finn especially, she has a ds who is the same age. Anyway yesterday, I realized that she's an MDC mama! Isn't that funny! No wonder it's been going so well!

Ok, so at the yard sale yesterday, I got a lot of diaper-friendly clothes for Abby, and today I got lots of clothes and shoes for Ari from freecycle. I love not needing to go shopping!
