We're allowed to start March just not reach the middle or end. I told D I might just spontaniously start crying at random parts of the month, it doesn't help that 3 of her top teeth are now in she doesn't look like a baby at all anymore.

Can't believe the babies are almost one! My baby turns 2 next month.

Wish I could have made it to emans house yesterday. Maybe we can try again soon. If things don't get better with my back soon my mom is gonna fly out to help me. Maybe she could help me get dd to a pg while she's here.

Isn't the weather just gorgeous! :

We played outside all morning and promptly got in a bath. Both kids were just covered in dirt. I love this weather.

A is very excited that it's March. 2 weeks until she's 4 yo. Of course she always has to add that after 4 she'll be 5.

I get the good mom award today...Since the Valentine's party at ASF's house, A has been complaining that her foot hurt. She had stepped on a goathead or something. Anyway, I looked at her foot and there was a little bump and a dark dot. I figured it was just healing. Last night in the bath, I got a HUGE splinter thing out of that spot that was sticking straight into her foot. The poor thing has been walking on it for a few weeks.

right now they have half days on fridays

the span school was in the lead until i realized they have uniforms like this SID kid would ever wear a turtleneck or polo or slacks - hah! So they are even right now because for the span school i would have to deal with the drama of exemptions and being "that mom" from the start. And the hippy school has the drawback of being 5 days. This is hard yo!

Eman's, Oh boy.

My nephew is visiting us tonight.
Is this what it's like with 3 kids? Adam and I haven't even finished a conversation since he got home and when we tried to have a conversation with the kids at dinner, it was as if we were trying to talk to hyper puppies. ........

Tomorrow will be kids to school, dermatologist, lunch meeting with UMN faculty, go to UNM preschool to sign up C, post office to mail taxes, pick up kids, homework, dinner, confernece call for Midwifery Foundation....bath nd bed it goes on and on. Then work on Thursday, you know, where I get my break....laundry so does not fit into the plan. I guess that is why it is piled high on my futon.

So I called about UNM's pre-K program today and was told they don't haven't opened up registration yet and that they aren't accepting applications until May. Did I just talk to someone who had no clue, or what?

Wow makes my days look tame and boring.

M was up last night, saying it like that doesn't sound so bad, so innocent, she was up ALL NIGHT. I'm breaking the no coffee rule.

I was told to come by and fill out the form and that they do the class lists in the summer. There is no guanantee. I will pick up an extra one to day if I can.

They HAVE to get in. Its the only way my plan works.

Eman, sorry M was up all night.

ASF, S will be in school on Fridays too, but I think I'll be taking her out for half days so we can go to playgroup. And at least one Friday a month, I think they don't have school (or maybe it's just half day.)

Library story time today at 11. After that we get to clean the house (oh joy!)

Mama of three.

Ugh, I'm sick. I didn't get the last round of colds, so I got a stomach virus instead.: Feeling a bit better this morning.

Emans, here's the books B has been reading lately -

Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, the first book is The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

The 39 Clues series, first book is The Maze of Bones by Rick Riordan. This series has only (as of today) 3 books out so far. I think they are all by different authors

Leven Thumps and the Gateway to Foo by Obert Skye. I think this has a few books in the series too. I haven't read this one yet.

Another series that's an easier read but really funny is the Dragonslayer's Academy series by Kate McMullan and Bill Basso.

And has E read Spiderwick yet? It was a great confidence builder for B. They are short books - I think there were four in the series.

If I think of anymore, I'll let you know. Now back to the couch for me...
