Just postin cuz I'm up. What a surprise!<br>
And I did see your nice bday wish for Orion. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">: The real birthing day is 9/3, somewhere around 1 in the morning (sad I can't remember the minutes.) Girl, you never said if you were coming tomorrow. Been keeping you in the maybe list. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> The kids are turning into puppies - how can Naia miss it? I have face paint, ears and stuff to make their own collars!<br><br>
I also never finished up my bio stuff last month. Anybody else in for keeping the disclosures coming?<br><br>
OK, I am off to make more pawprints. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Oh, and Arwyn, I PMd you earlier and just saw in never went through. The time is totally open ended. There are a couple families I think will stay a really long time, so no worries about when to show up. I even made Brisen a little party bag that has like one thing in it because he is the only really little dude, and that is all that worked for him. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> And... there is one extra right turn into our culdesac at the end if you Mapquest it. That is the only tricky thing about our address.<br><br>
ETA: I see you did make an update on the invite Nadine. That's what I get for not checking before I post. I still say Naia needs to come be a puppy tho. I will save her ears if you don't come. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Janna, we had such a good time at your house, thanks for having us over! I'd love to hear your thoughts on it, when you have a chance. Nicole, thanks for the backroad tips, we took River Road is was so much faster and beautiful. A lot of farms along that road I'll have to check out another time!

Good morning, Ellie!<br><br>
Sorry we didn't get to meet up at Bullwinkles awhile back. After playing there, I took the boys to the park and I had as much fun as they climbing on everything.<br><br>
Happy September and Happy 'Labor' Day, too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I was really really upset with what happened to Killian, and the lack of response/awareness from the parents of the kiddo's involved. But....I dont feel like I can say what I thought about it in a nice, non-confrontational way, so I guess I will leave it at that, and just make some changes about how I approach play dates in the future <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
and...Happy September! I love fall, its the time of year I look forward to the whole rest of the year! The leaves changing, the crisp air, the apple and pumpkin picking, the shorter stormier days. sigh. i <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat"> it!

For what it's worth, I wasn't happy with the way I handled it either and after we left I had a talk with Bella about playing nice and not hitting/excluding. Thanks for having us over, we had fun!

Happy anniversary!!!<br><br>
Kitchen slave is now babywearing super dad, sorry Tiff. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> Depending on how long Brisen naps, we might go shopping before the par-tay, and if so, we <i>might</i> drop off some milk and see if we have anything we can bring overs for da foods. But probably not, 'cause it always takes longer to get ready than I think it does. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>
Dood, more stuff I've been randomly remembering from the past month.<br><br>
Jenn - what happened to your little weiner that cost almost half a grand?? Is he ok? (Gotten any more sleep yet? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">)<br><br>
Angie - Sorry about the link letdown. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> We still don't really have a working camera, and the one we do have is full and we haven't gotten those pics on the puter, so we can't take more. We'll have to get to some event at the same time sos we can admire each other's munchkins. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Still waiting for pics of the westsiiiiiide's own Marilyn. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br><br><br>
Oh. My parents lost their cat. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> She was 18, had gotten hit by a car about a decade ago, and had bad hips since then. She was starting to go, and at the beginning of this week, she went. The problem is, no one knows <i>where</i> she went. She might have gotten out, she might have crawled into a hole (or under a bed) to fall asleep one last time, but she hasn't been seen or heard since Monday. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> That was my cat. My Misty kittencat. Granted, she's been mad at me since I was 12 and brought home a dog, but she was still my first real feline love. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/candle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Candle"> Misty Myanmar <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/candle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Candle">

??? I hope Ciara wasn't doing anything. I know she was playing out there for awhile where I couldn't see her... Sometimes she doesn't understand boundaries, so I really hope she didn't hurt anyone's feelings. I must have missed whatever happened...

Janna, thanks again for having us all over, I had a great time! I was unaware there was something happening with Killian... I hope everything turned out well in the end. I appreciate you putting up with us all! And the ice cream was yummy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yummy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yummy"><br><br>
Nadine, you can rub my bump any ol' time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br><br>
Oh Arwyn, I'm sorry your ancient little granny kitty has gone! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
My tailbone aches so bad that I fantasize about just ripping it out. ARg! I never had this pain until my 3rd pregnancy. Today I'm having one of those days where I can barely walk at all & doing anything other than rocking on my birth ball is excruciating.<br><br>
I've never been to a chiropractor in my life. Do you guys know if my pregnancy hormone affected tail bone is something a chiro would be helpful for? This is ridiculous, I can't stand the thought of being Igor for 4 more whole months, dragging my leg around & grunting. Where's a good leg-dragging Igor smiley when ya need it???

I don't know how to word this exactly, I've typed and deleted about 3 times, but I think what it all comes down to, when at play dates and the play date is taking place inside and outside someones home, kids still need to be watched and spoken to when a problem arises. There were numerous times that I had to tell the kids to not throw sand, that someone else was playing with a certain toy and you can't just come up and take it right out of their hands, the rocks need to stay in the rock garden...things like that. It is nice and the whole idea behind play dates is to let the kids play, but I think they still need to checked on and watched carefully.<br><br>
I'm not trying to sound snarky and rude, its just things that I observed and I'm not perfect either so don't get me wrong thinking that my boys weren't involved, they were at times and they were talked to the same way the other kids were talked to. But I don't think its my job to sit there and watch other kids who aren't mine while their momma is inside eating or talking to someone else. That's part of being a parent is not getting to eat all your meal in one sitting and it takes many attempts to finish a conversation when your kids are of the age ours are.<br><br>
I think since we all are adults we should be able to discuss a problem when it arises like adults and speak truthfully even if someones toes may be stepped on, otherwise it just bottles up inside and can create sometimes more of a problem.

How do you think it could have been handled better/worse? I'm not sure if you were happy or upset how it was handled.
