Rynna! I want to say Mama! Hugs! You're so strong! But part of me thinks that you know that and you don't need to be cuddled (well not by me) so instead I'll give you a virtual high five for having your poop in a group and doing what you gotta do!
okay, just a few quick moments

dea- the balm was incredibly easy, it's my new thang!
1/4 c of almond oil
1-1/2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp shea butter
1 tbsp beeswax
these are all mostly approximate measuremewnts.
melt in a double boiler remove and let cool until cloudy, then wisk in the essential oils (i used lime, lavender and blood orange) and put into containers until set. i used some of the extras on my elbows and they were silky smooth
rynna- i had no idea about boobah! i thought it was some tiny thing with her kidneys, not that serious. for me i just go along not thinking about it at all until i brush up against it. then it stuns me again and i'm like, "how could i have forgotten THIS?!?!" it's been awhile since my last reminder....
ema- i'm hoping to manifest some friends irl too this coming year. i sure need them!!
raina- so cute about the farting! i LOVE little kid farts!! especially baby farts
helen- that's so sad about jane goody o hadn't heard about her. there's a thread about sugarlumpkin i think in toa, she has a 2-1/2 yo i think. as for weight watchers, my grandparents both used it successfully, but it took them a couple of months to start seeing large results, could you just decrease your points on your own?
i recently have lost about 10 pounds and i attribute it to cutting out sugar and wheat and eating just about everything made from scratch.
It is just some tiny thing... her first year was just a LOT more work, and her second a fair bit (kids with kidney problems often have growth issues as a result, so they get followed more closely in the first two years). She's short, but not really any shorter than expected-- in fact, Bella's smaller for her age than BooBah. Today we just make sure she can self-select her foods (she needs more salt than most people) and make sure that anyone with her knows that if she says she has to pee, she is not stalling and she means RIGHT FREAKING NOW (because her kidneys don't filter very well, so she just pushes water out of her body by the gallon). I was told that she might have a hard time potty learning because she puts out so much urine, but she never got that memo and was out of diapers at 22 months.
Also, I am completely insane. Seriously. I only appear to manage so well when my few, few rules are applied. Household rules, for example, are "No naked buns in front of windows," and "Chew and swallow before you speak." Those are the major ones. Oh, and "No throwing things" and "No hard toys in bed." Just about everything else is negotiable.
Back to the grind. I'm sorting out the kids' clothing. Bear needs a 2T for everything because he's so freaking tall. Poor fellow, things are forever falling off of his nonexistant hips, but if it's not a 2T it's nothing like long enough for arms, legs, or body. He's got a pair of 18 month sized overalls that are perhaps 6 months old and the snaps pop open because he's too tall to wear them. I think I'm gonna freecycle this stuff.... Do you think that denim shortalls which are kind of bloused around the buns and embroidered with daisies are too girly for a little man? It's not that I mind terribly... but I prefer the kids to be old enough to explain their own clothing choices. (BeanBean wears pink all the time, it's one of his favorite colors.)
Oh, and I've discovered iTunes free streaming radio. It's quite sexy.
