Basically it's NYE!



We are a group of parents that chat and support each other.
We have been at this for a while so some of us are out of the diapering stage.
...some were out and are back in again.
Every once in a while we actually get to answer a diaper question or two in here.
If you are looking for a very diverse and open group come on over and chat.

Re: Basically it's NYE!

Good morning everyone!

I slept well and the kids were good this morning so it's a very good end to the year so far.

I have some cleaning to do in the kitchen but that can wait till later. We got the Bretzels and new year Bretzels so we're all set for the breakfast tomorrow. I plan on setting the table tonight so it's ready first thing and all we need to do is make the tea/coffee/kaba and get the butter out of the fridge.

Re: Basically it's NYE!

Here's a fun idea...take a photo of your kids today and post them. Then next year we can do the same and compare to see how much they've changed over the year.

Re: Basically it's NYE!

Cute pics Janine!
I will later, once my kids have been showered/dressed. Bella is still asleep which based on her recent attitude is good. She was wound up and overtired, not a good combination!
I am descaling my Keurig as I went to use it this morning and nothing happened, but it seems to be going along well with the vinegar and is soaking now. Littles are watching Sophia the First, love hearing Tim Gunn's voice
Today I am baking a few desserts and doing laundry and cleaning up. We are going to SIL's house tonight for NYE and the girls are bringing cupcakes for the horses' birthdays. All registered horsesare counted as another year older on Jan 1 so we are pretending it is 20 horses birthdays tonight.

This is a cool blog about a 92 year old man that's just started blogging.

Re: Basically it's NYE!

The waffle maker I ordered arrived today so I got a vegan kindle waffle recipe book and I've mixed up a batch of plain zimt waffles. I can hardly wait to make them.

We've decided to try and keep Fynn lactose free for a while to try and get on top of his troublesome belly/diaper issues. He cant PL till that's sorted out. So the Waffles are LF and EF but not GF.

Well I don't have any candles so probably not. Not really a New Years resolution just seems like a good time to start on being more frugal, so no more online shopping or extra random unplanned trips to the store. I am going to try to use what we have here and meal plan for just one trip a week at most. And hopefully lose a few pounds and exercise too. I did pretty good over the Holidays eating in moderation. I am going to make a big pot of lentil soup today that I can eat when others are having things I shouldn't.

I really want to get back into cooking more and making sure the kids eat a proper meal and not cadging dinner off their Oma and Opa.

Maybe I'll have a designated Oma&Opa dinner day so they dont feel they are getting ripped off.
