ok, I totally forgot this morning that I did too have news! DH and I are engaged to get really officially married, finally!

And just now Kayleigh rolled from her back to her tummy and looked SO proud. Up until now I'd only seen her roll from tummy to back so it very well may have been the first time. I've got all the blankets stripped off the kingsize bed (except the fitted sheet) and she's rolling around and squirming and just generally moving and hopefully tiring herself out! It's 9:30pm and my little night owl has been going to bed at 10pm the last week or so.

Today Kiran has been scooting backwards a little, it's the most mobility we've seen yet.

I believe this to be true in some cases, but for the most part not. My son (the one w/ the corn allergy) rolled over *really* early, something like 9 weeks. BUT, it wasn't like he had the desire to be mobile, it was more like he was uncomfortable in his own skin and trying to escape. When we discovered the cause of his allergy and made sure he got no more corn derived stuffs, he stopped rolling! Being a first time mom and seeing him revert to not rolling really caused me to worry, but in retrospect I see that he was just plain more content. I'm sure your little guy is just fine.

What aspect of HSing do you think he will have the most reservations about? For most people it it's the socializing thing. A lot of people have the notion that homeschoolers are maladjusted, anti-social, humorless kids. If that's the case, try visiting a homeschooling group and meeting some of the families.

Exercising has been a huge mood booster for me. Hubby and I played racquetball last Friday. Afterward, I was commenting on how nice it was to act like an adult but my husband pointed out that it was actually nice to act like children. I had to admit he had a point.

I've decided that the cramping and occasional spotting is ovulation. The only reason i think so is because I have a lot more breastmilk which I remember experiencing during ovulation after my son was born.

Wow! A few days and I've already misseds a lot. We went to NH for a few daysand just got back tonight.

Selena, don't even think about the package. I hope things are going better for you.

Megan, how awesome that the workshop got such great publicity. I can't wait to hear how many people show up to learn about BWing.

Congratulations, Kristen! Great news. Your care package went out in the mail on Thursday, so should be there soon.

Thanks to everyone who posted about the jumperoos. Still haven't decided what we'll do, but I appreciate the input.

Baraka, how was your troupe's show?

Looking forward to catching up some more.

heidi, thanks for the k12 info. (the link didn't work but i easily googled it).

ashley, good idea to meet other hs'd kids. i've recently joined a local API group & one family homeschools which, i agree, is good for dh to see because they are fabulous kids! a few other families with preschoolers are contemplating the idea which, again, is good for dh to see because we live in a high taxed, good district area so he thinks it would be nuts to hs....but peer pressure works for the better sometimes.

kristen, congrats on the engagement!! is there a date set? big ceremony plans?

megan, how was your babywearing class?

baraka, your show this weekend?

we've been so incredibly busy & it just doesn't slow down this time of year. can i just blurb my busy-ness for a minute? i am involved in 3 groups that have monthly meetings....API, my small group at church & a homeopathic study group. we're also hosting thanksgiving this year, i'm hosting a cookie exchange for church, volunteering at ten thousand villages for a pre-holiday sale, dd2's birthday is 12/21 so we're having a party on the 15th & then it's christmas!? this crazy schedule doesn't even include any holiday parties which i'm definitely not hosting but i'd like to be invited to a few. thankfully the kids enjoy people & thrive in active settings (if they're well rested & fed) and dh & i love to entertain & socialize...but just looking at my calendar gives me anxiety. like always, though, i'm sure it will be much less benign than it looks on paper.

for those of you who celebrate christmas, do you have any cool family traditions? i've finally "dictated" a schedule so that we see dh's family on christmas eve & my family on christmas afternoon/evening so that we have christmas morning all to ourselves. i'd love to start a few fun & interesting traditions but...i grew up in a family that always traveled for the holidays so i have nothing to borrow or fall back on!?

CONGRATS Kristen!!! That's wonderful news!!!

Ah Mamas! The shows were Amazing this weekend! It was just the most fun I've had in a long time and it felt like the perfect integration of myself as artist and myself as Mama... we raised I think about 4000 $$ for victims of sexual assault. That feels great! And a woman wants to purchase a spoken word/hip hop piece I created about the post-modern goddess or maybe purchase use of my voice for recording! It was healing being with the other women in my troupe and bringing the sacred feminine to the public.... ahhhh I am still soaking in all of the love of the weekend! It was just perfect and I can't wait for more!

Re: Holiday celebrations.... we celebrate the "return of the light"... on winter solstice. The astrological moment during the year that we move from the shortest day into the returning of daylight. We makes a big bonfire and after having contemplated on what we want to create for the upcoming year, we release our intentions by throwing our written desires into the fire. I also always make a big feast and we have a tree. This year, because of the retreat, we will host a big celebration on the 30th. We are also thinking of having a big community potluck in our studio on New Years Day.

One more bit of news/muse...
Akasha is crawling in earnest now! She's been a big mover for so long, but this weekend I saw her take her first knee/opposite arm crawl across the room. She has been very happy and laughing a lot. I think she is excited about her new freedom and mobility.

Grace Comes.

drop My niece did this yesterday with Elisabeth. She carried the little potty, like a BBLP, over to my MIL, so my MIL put E on it and she pooped. she's been kinda reluctant to try EC, says I'm the expert, but it worked for her! I was thrilled!

I was homeschooled. I am glad. I am such a non-conformist, I like to think anyway.

Congratulations, Kristen!

What is IRL?

My best friend has done belly-dancing, and I tried it, man, that's hard work!

Cool having a class, Megan, I hope it went well. Gotta go.

IRL - in real life

DD really knows what DS wants, too, it's very cool!

DS (born May 2) is sitting - it's so cute!, but doesn't like to put weight on his arms, so no sign of crawling yet. His arms are very strong, he just doesn't use them to support his weight. He sooo wants to eat, but seems to still have the tongue thrust, so we'll just continue trying every week or so.

I am cranky today. Not sure why, just feel sort of cranky. I got out or dyed wool and took out my cranky feelings on making some felted woll balls. DH came home and was like "who are all these balls for?" and I had to explain I have nothing to do with them, I just needed to make something!

Wow - I didn't come here for a few days and I missed so much! Congrats Kristen and Baraka and Megan!

My kids have had runny noses and a bit of a cough and stuff, so I've been on mom duty tons. They have both been going to bed super early, and getting up really early which is so opposite of my normal pattern. It's sweet when my daughter NEEDS me so much, though. In between she is whining, her ears are stuffed up so she really truly CAN'T hear me (as opposed to just ignoring me LOL), and cranky but then she looks at me and says "Mom, can you rock me?"

Henry is just sweetness all the time. He is all over the place and pulling up on stuff like crazy. Scary sometimes because he's hit his head a few times on the coffee table and on the TV cabinet. His top two teeth popped through last night. Yesterday he was shoving his face into everything trying to push them back in I think. So, five teeth now! He's just making me feel like time's speeding up and speeding up FAST!

I have tons of stuff to do. Better get to it.

My hubby has PMS and is totally grumpy tonight too. Or maybe I have PMS and I'm taking everything he says and does personally. It could really go either way.

Heidi, I've got a cute hat that someone gave that she said was from Tuesday Morning. It's a little small and stretchy, so it pops off easily, but very cute. I'm going to crochet a strap to just tuck under her chin when we put it on.

Elisabeth signed potty last night, or at least copied Daddy when he was signing and making the Psss sound! We had been at my IL's hunting, and last night right before we left, was pottying her, and she copied him and made a fist, had her thumb in her fist, don't know if she could get it sticking out right, it was amazing and cute. He called my name, and I thought something was wrong, he sounded so serious. We(me and MIL) went into the living room, and E smiled at us with her hands on her knees, then did it again. So my MIL got to see her do it too!

I got a beautiful buck, it was gorgeous weather for being outside, and and I processed the meat, we got 50 lbs packed and cut into roasts, steaks and cubed for stew or curries and in the freezer. We had at least 20 more lbs that we put in with my FIL's meat for sausage. He had a nice rack, (no, I'm not being naughty ) and was still young enough the meat was tender. I had gotten the Pampered Chef boning knife when I had my party, and woo-wee, it was so nice cutting with it. It was a very good weekend. And then I get home. . .

. . .and my box from Megan is here! Woohoo! So going to post about it.

Mama to 2 year old and :: June 14th!

Maggirayne, if I had realized you were from ND, I would have stopped over on my way home from Billings, MT last month. Congrats on good hunting. Do you have any suggestions on cooking a venison roast? Is it the same as beef? I'm afraid it will taste too venisonish.

My children are little snot factories today. I'm the keeper-of-the-kleenexes. The snot-sucker-outter doesn't work very well. Just makes baby cry. Am I doing it wrong? I got three hours of sleep so my ambition is gone. I'm to lazy to even try to remember the real name for the snot-sucker-outter.

I am going to try a roast today in the crock pot, actually! The last time I did it, I didn't like it--just put spices on it. My did buffalo roasts with the powdered onion soup. You can use mushroom soup, too. I like best to cube it and do stew, veggie soup, or curry.

It's a bulb syringe, you have to get the pointy part in the nostril far enough that there's no air around it, while holding it squeezed, then release and it sucks air/snot out. Possible while holding a wiggly _ mo old? Ha! Good luck. I'm trying to get her to blow when I hold a tissue up to her nose. Hey if she's learned to scrunch her nose up like I do when I smile, she can blow her nose!

Aww, that would have been super-cool to meet you. Well, the next time you go thru. . . do stop by, I'm right on the Interstate practically.

Mama to 2 year old and :: June 14th!

Elise has started tasting foods. She is sharing a organic pear w/ me right now and loving it! She really just sucks on it but she is getting lots of juice.
I think that I've become a CD'ing MONSTER!! LOL I started counting last night b/c there was another "lot" I wanted to buy but I thought I should count to see how many I have coming. Y'all I STOPPED counting at FORTY:!!! I think I have a problem! ROFLOL Elise is MUCH happier in CD's. We are getting used to them but they are GREAT!
Thanks we go to Lynden all the time so LaConner is right on the way.

That is funny about CD. We use disposable at night and all of my kids have let it be known they prefer cloth on their behind.
