Basically it's Wednesday


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.

Glad to head that the chart is working for MH, Jen!

Sorry that Shannon tried to be sneaky so she wouldn't have to do her homework.

Cheryl, I am sorry that your mornings aren't working for you right now. In terms of consequences, what would really happen if you DID make the girls walk to school in this weather? They have winter clothes. Our students played outside for 40 minutes today at lunch, and it was 1*F with a windchill of -15*F. Several kids in my class didn't have snow pants, and no one died. Might be just the ticket, actually.

Time for a decaf and some dessert before doing planning and working on report cards.
I have to say I agree...I'd have to enforce the harshest punishment to get the kids back on track. If the threat was to walk to school then just once it'd have to happen. It wouldn't be pretty but it'd make sure they understood.

And it is nice for me to see her joyful (and following directions lol) But yeah, horses are not cheap. Says the person that is doing what she can not to buy one but realllly wants one.
Here lessons are 25 per lesson...which is why my kids cant have lessons. I mean it'd be 75 per week 4 times a month...I just dont have 300 for the kids to "Play" with some horses. Because they are never going to be professional riders so it'd only be playing. That's more than double what I earn in a month!

I feel sad they wont get to experience it but that's how it is.

Cheryl, you might want to make sure you can enforce the walk to school thing before it gets too too warm. That way they would know you CAN enforce it, and it might make the, think twice. Or maybe not. Who knows!

I made carrot soup for supper, and while good, I am kinda still hungry. Hmmm.
Yes...maybe wait a bit but be sure that it's still cold enough for them to really not want it to happen again any time soon.

I love soup too but it really doesn't fill me up for long.

She's a beautiful girl. Sweet, intelligent, and loving. You can be very proud. You and Jerry are great parents. You have a very special daughter!

Happy Birthday Mary Helen!

So far the morning is going good. Ginger will probably be totally done and ready before she would have eaten breakfast in the past. Rosie, we shall have to see, but so far ahead of schedule. Ian is still asleep, he had a rough night. I am not sure I can take him anywhere yet today.

Feel ya on the cost of extracurriculars of multiples Janine. Here most of the activities last 2-3 months, and you pay upfront. And they all start at the same time, so 2 or 3x for 2 or 3 kids. If Rosie goes to horse lessons this summer, then she wont get to do anything else. I try to stick with city classes so they are cheaper, but still having three of them makes it difficult to juggle sometimes.

second cousin niece!
Janine, fwiw I am very happy that the lessons are two hours away. It is only on rare occasions that we go up for lessons, when it is nice we try and do hers here. SIL is good about making Bella listen and telling her what to do. I doubt that I would do all of them in weekly lessons!

Happy Birthday MH!!!!!!!

Walker just ate an entire banana no joke.

So Walker went to the audiologist yesterday to have a hearing test before his tubes. In one ear he has moderate to severe hearing loss and in the other moderate she was pretty confident tubes will solve the problem. She also said he can only hear muffled sounds

That's great Kari...I'm really pleased you found this out so early. He'll be fine with his tubes and getting them done earlier will help him a lot. You know how delayed Fynn was. He's caught up so fast now. You'd never know he has them.

I'm sure you dont feel happy about them right now but it is good news

Oops...it seems the girls forgot their meds this morning. It's very obvious seeing Derry that she's totally not medicated.
