Well, we won't make it after all Miss C caught the sniffles/cough last night and I don't want to spread any germies around.

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

crazy - cant wait till you can come back to pg. The babies are too cute together - C and M just chatted it up today - um, before they both started pawing at each other. C has 3 little M claw marks on his cheek

so mno next week - wed/thurs work best for me but i can figure it out if other days are better for other peeps. lets get this figured out - we wanted to do a sewing day.

Little c is such a different guy. I was looking at big c's baby diary and it says at this age she was:
self feeding with a spoon (messily though)
pointing to pages in a book babbling (i have that on tape - very cute)
turning those book pages one at a time
holding her own bottle
taking her diapers off
saying mama
reaching for me

doh - little c doesnt do any of that - but there is no mention in the diary of how nice she is ...though there is meantion of her "willfullness"

All of ds dairy entries are about how sweet he is and how snuggle, easy, lovey he is.

I posted in the other place about MNO. That way we don't violate anything reguarding co-ops.

The fact that you keep a diary is enough! At 4m, S was happily sitting with me but if I left then she'd scream and puke. Little S would take off accross the room without looking and rarely nursed so there was really nothing to puke. Babies are so different! I swear Little S learned to crawl so early to get attention :

I can't believe the babies are getting so old, it's just not fair.

Poor C's cute little face, maybe it will give him some street cred I'll check out the other place I think Wednesday would be best for me.

We are back in two days !!!! Then I have to work like a dog again. I wonder if I can make MNO I'll check over there.

Just got back from my ocean !!!!! Liam learned how to boogie board and "wipeout" on waves. Chloe knows how to build a sandcastle. And they both learned about the boardwalk. Oh yeah, more outlets. Whew !! Three days with kids at the beach whipped my butt. Man it was fun.

So what I learned is that I would drop everything to move back here. However, family and friends here think I am such a hippie. Which I find pretty funny since I am probably the most mainstream of this group out in Abq.

And I'm having anxiety about coming back to NM, starting third grade and working again. Got a migraine and a crying spell over it today. What a mess I am

SEE YA SOON !!!!

We'll get you through. I was searching out lake cabins in upstate NY the other day. I was actually laying out a "workable" floorplan for a 250 square foot cabin


I do miss the east coast but I fit better here (at least that is what I tell myself)

Well I had my "day before going back" breakdown like I normally do. Now I'm scampering to get all the shoes, clothes and toys that are all over the house back to a suitcase with all the stuff we bought. My brain is starting to transition back to New Mexico. Just checked in for my flight as the clock turned the minute of our flight and I am still number 36, 37, 38 to board...

Eman, did you register E for school last week? I am going straight there from the airport tomorrow (they know we were out of town). Did you need any papers? Call me on my cell if I need anything other than myself and half a brain. Did you get a school supply list yet? Friday is my only day off before school starts so I have to get it all done then.

Do we have any plans for Friday?

And Eman, I guess I do fit in better in NM, however if plane fares go as high as they expect we are all gonna be trapped here and that jsut won't work for me. I need my yearly east coast fix and ocean infusion.

Corrales right? Not Los Ranchos?

Ok I just hit a button on the laptop and lost a whole paragraph about the beach and plane tickets. Anyway school reg was fine, 3 long pages that were all pretty much the same info, no need for anything special. Supply list is on the website and at reg. If they are serious about notebooks without perferationsthey'll need to tell me where to get them. The list was pretty basic.

I AM SO NOT READY FOR THIRD GRADE !!! Okay i had to get that out.

Hey I have to take L to NACC and then C to school on Monday (its the first day there so I am sending her so she starts with the other kids even tho I am off). Wanna go out for breakfast afterwards? I'm gonna need some mama time. What is R doing for preschool this year?

Is Thrusday good for anyone else? If it is, then if Anodyne would give me a ride, I can go.

I vote for swimming at Kermit's on Friday Dh is supposed to be taking the day off (BIL is coming down and they talked about getting together to do something with their dad) so he could drop me off. If he doesn't take off, maybe doularn or Andoyne could pick me up?

Friday sounds wonderful, is there a place over there with the addy?

So can someones nipples actually fall off if they are used too much : and some of those evil sleep training books are going to start looking pretty good if I don't get some sleep. This morning I actually forgot we owned a kitchenaid. I was trying to make banana bread and couldn't figure out how to mix it. :yawning: Twice last week I caught dinner on fire.

Yikes emans! N has been nursing like crazy. . 4 mos growth spurt I think? Sorry about your clumsiness in the kitchen! If it makes you feel any better I made bread last night and it came out kinda weird. Not sure what happened. At least I didn't forget about my stand mixer

So. . it's official. . .I handed in my resignation today! I'm both scared and excited. It's hard to leave a cushy, stable job for the unknown. I'm taking classes this fall but should still be able to make it to pg, even if I'm a little late.

We're HOME!!!!!

I won't bore you with the dozen or so things that my Dh either didn't do or screwed up but I'll say if I was home for a week alone, the house would not look the way it does now.

Oh yeah, he's going back to Europe in three weeks.

Friday should be fine but I won't be anywhere early. If you need me to drive Elm we have to take your van. I only seat 5 now. I'm not a minivan mom any more.

Is it really necessary to have school supplies on the first day of school? Dontcha think the first week is good enough?

Welcome home! I'm fine taking my van (if Anodyne takes me we'll take it anyways.) Sorry your dh was a dweeb (I thought he was back east with you though.)

Dh is traveling yet again next week. For a job that requires travel he sure does travel a lot!

Yey glad you are home.

Crazy, congrates I was so terrified when I turned mine in. I think I could still recite it word for word I read it over so many times.


So I need to ramble sometime about my new gymnastics/soccer conflict and R.

eeeep - i have totally ignored my homework and cleaning to sew the last 2 days.

sunday i made:
a blanket for big c
3 bibs
3 wipes
and i sewed patches onto 3 shirts

yesterday i made:
3 more bibs
put buttons on the buzz lightyear dress and the sailor dress
put a cute little iron on thing to a shirt

i posted the pic link at the other board. now my house is a total wreck

um so yeah mr babyman isnt nursing like crazy all day...




instead he is nursing ALL FREAKIN NIGHT! During the day he is so distractable and wants to look at EVERYTHING.
HE also prefers to pull up my shirt so my entire boob is visable
Which is great as we are in a waiting room and he is moaning, stroking my boob and pulling up my shirt and when people snicker he has to pop off to smile at them whilst i spray him in the ear and there is more laughter.

I think it is the learning thing because the last few nights he has woken up to sing/yell/roll/hit me/pinch me with his toes etc.

Before I head to Goodwill, is anyone intrested in:
A bathroom scale
An electric indoor grill
A crockpot with two chambers
everything works and is fine just stuff we've replaced.






So ASF are you going to bail tomorrow night in favor of housework
