There is entirely too much communication going on. I cant keep track of Here and Facebook !!!

Kids are making me breakfast....eek. But its so sweet.

ASF- I will look I might have a potty seat for the regular toliet.

Its so cold. We are supposed to get outdoor pictures taken of the kids this afternoon at 3p when we have it scheduled. The high will be 32-34 degrees. Would you still do it? I'd rather just stay in bed....

Forget whether I would do it, doularn -- my kids would downright refuse.

AF cramps are making me a beast.

Need to start our school day, toodles!

We are six: Me : Dh : Ds1('00) Dd('02) Ds2('05) Ds3('08) and, wow! Soon to be seven, Dd2 due 4/23.

I would do it but then I'm all about pictures.

So the delivery guys came but with the wrong washer, so they think I can still get mine by the end of the day.

Elm, nothing exciting it just decided mid way through a load that there was no point in living any longer, and given it's age we were told there was no point in trying to fix it. This was Tuesday, so the laundry is really piling up.

We did the pics, it was cold but not too bad. They did pretty good we got a solid hour out of them, really almost an hour and a half before the first meltdown.

C is at my friend's house for the weekend while I work. She was so completely excited about her "double sleepover" and so sure that she did not need me. Hope that she keeps that all weekend...

New washer, new fridge, I am envious (just not about the damaged house part!)

The OT evaluation went good so far. We will find out more next week if they want to evaluate her more or if she can get services there. Hopefully we will have good news then... They seemed pretty nice there.

Just a modifiedartist.gif trying to find some peace and regain my balance.

Hope you get good news, Blue!

Also, just gotta say that I have no idea why N is so dang skinny. . he eats like a frickin' horse! So we went to Red Robin this afternoon and we knew from experience that we better order N his own meal (last time he nearly ate my entire chicken sandwich!). He ate EVERYTHING! All 3 pieces of grilled chicken, all the mandarin oranges, and a few french fries on top of it. Heck, we didn't have to start ordering E her own stuff until she was like 3.5 since she ate so little sharing was no big deal. Last night I made hamburgers for dinner and he ate 2 smallish patties (at least a 1/4 lb total), a bunch of fries, a handful of tomatoes. The kid can really put it away. And yet, he's completely off the growth curve. Oh well, I'm tryin' not to worry about it. He clearly doesn't have any issues eating (or pooping), so all I can guess is that he's so dang active and has a high metabolism he's just burning everything he takes in.

And on another good note, just this past week he starting saying "mama". Ah, I love it! And he says all of the ILs dogs' names. And he is learning is body parts, both the words and locations, those sometimes he gets "eye" and "ear" mixed up. And he calls his nose "no", which is cute. I still don't think he's gonna have 50 words by age 2, but at least he's starting to say something.

Ack! I can't spend more money right now, but the kids need new crocs!

Parents' visit went surprisingly well and they even stayed a day longer than I expected.

Met with the dog trainer yesterday, and I'm starting to feel more hopeful. But it's going to be a lot of work. Ugh. We should have gotten a puppy...

So I just spent $160 on M&M's for Christmas. Getting 26 1/2lb bags of different colored M&M's is expensive! But at least Senor Murphy's is cheaper than m&m.com! And I didn't have to pay shipping!

They'll go on top of the presents. We try to add an extra to the top but usually don't get around to it, but this year we managed. Plus, everyone loves M&M's! My niece K is getting some sour gummy worms instead because I think she'll enjoy licking them.

My BIL? At the restaurant? They have some good apps (and good burgers, yum.)

Ok forget the idea about renting a space to use as a playgroup location. I think we should all get together and rent a small apartment so we can all rotate a place to sleep at night. I'm so tired, between the snoring dog and husband and the nursing toddler I need a place to hang out and sleep a few nights a month.

Does anyone know anything about risen savior? someone asked my dad about about their 3 and 4 year old preschool program and it sounded good (low ratio and very part time) but that is all i know about it.

Risen Savior Catholic Church? I don't really know anything about the preschool except that it's half day (which made it so it wasn't worth of it for me to send S1 there ) My SIL and her family go to that church and they like it a lot.

Eman, I hosted a friend at my house when I was single. New mom to two very young kids. She came over a few times, just to sleep in my guest room.

I just got L fitted for glasses today. Sigh... I was such the mother. I only let him try blue ones on so I could coordinate with his blue eyes.
