Becca, I've been wondering how you will 'do it all' this fall....
When you HAVE to be organized, you are. Less time actually equals more done, because you have no wiggle room.
Isn't it odd, but the older sibs (our almost-4 year olds) continue to need the most attention?!! It sure seems to be a common theme for our group. I guess the hard part is that they can talk, walk and do quite a few things for themselves, but emotionally they are still 'babies,' I guess. Or jealous. Or something.
I don't know, but I sure feel better when I realize that you guys have tough streaks with your kids also.
Jen, my next dishwasher (yes, I am going to keep Sears in business) is going to be an Electrolux. They are made in St. Cloud and they are awesome!! I can justify spending a little more b/c they are made right at the little factory we drive by on our way into town.
My mother is also an Electrolux nut.
s Actually, she's getting all of us an expensive vacuum for xmas, she already decided. I feel like such an American- I've never had all this suburban 'stuff' before!!
Jilly, how much does Aaron talk? Becca, Carl only uses 'dee,dee' (that means a lot of things) 'ba-cat' (bobcat, duh) and 'baba!' (papa). He can grunt out 'mama' or 'nana' sort of, on request b/c Cecilia is trying to 'teach' him to talk by making him deaf saying 'mama! SAY MAMA!' Darn those goofy Amanda & Oliver Pig books!
Heather, when did speech come for your boys?! Slowly, if I remember correctly...?! Just wondering.
Jen & Ashley, I am excited for your new kiddos.
: I can't wait to hear name ideas.
Ashley, when are you moving? Did you find a house or are you renting? It was really disheartening to watch Exxon play politics and win in Supreme court this spring. Alaskans have been having interesting (yet very simplistic) talk about the decision on the online newspaper comments. Of course they wanted to know how their elected officials could turn on them... well....
