Re: Basically it's Woolly Wednesday!

Morning mamas!

Sucks on the package Janine. Maybe Becky needs to send smaller packages, I think bigger ones tend to raise the flag.

B is TOO cute. He brightened my day.

This morning went without a hitch with the kids, only DH was being a butt. He tried, he let me shower first but got mad at me for cutting him off on showing Rose AGAIN how to blow one's nose properly, which is really not essential when you are already running late for school. We were running late because I was waiting for him to get out of the shower so I could leave Ian at home while I dropped her off. Next time I'll just pile all the kids in there, that was stupid on my part.

Mel, I hope all it is is just MSG. I know it's a PITA, but at least doing it this way you can be 100% sure.

This morning I served generic brand eggo waffles and they ate it up. I'm wondering why I bother cooking anything. When they go on sale for 10ct/$1.25, IDK that I can make them for that and it would take an hour to cook that many. Of course if I went and stuffed the freezer at that price, they'd suddenly stop liking waffles.

Re: Basically it's Woolly Wednesday!

I'm jealous you can shop with your kids, Steph. I've learned the hard way I can't, because they will glom on something they don't need or isn't available in their size. Or if they see it's available in pink or blue, they won't consider any other option. But if I bring it home, they are happy and grateful for new things. Unless of course it doesn't fit.

His slippers are hilarious!

I hope that all is well with Faith and Griffon!

Good luck to Heiner for getting your package from customs!

I'm up and having breakfast, E is too. I can't believe it's Wednesday again... cleaning day! Things are looking okay around here, so it shouldn't be too too hard. I still have to do the bathrooms and the floors and carpets though. Those are always in need of a clean, aren't they?

More challenging of dairy today too. I ate cheese yesterday, and had milk in my coffee, and was okay. All I could think was "Seriously?? Am I not allergic to this either??" If I did all this for MSG, I have to admit I might be a little peeved.
Awww I understand the beeing miffed but it would be soooo wonderful if it really was only the MSG. You found it all on your own, you took on this Huge task of changing your whole diet to find it and have done so amazingly well on it. You look great and I'm in total awe of your comitment to doing this Mel!

It is cleaning day here too. My mom is coming. We are hitting Target and Kohls for a few little girl pants and undies. I feel really bad, because maybe everything IS just too small. I mean, she is a growing kid and all... I hate shopping without her, because it means I will end up returning a bunch of stuff, but I need to go this morning! I am going to look online for the ONE pair of shoes she liked last year and order them in her current size!
Shannon has issues with tightness of clothes and just outgrew EVERTHING!

Re: Basically it's Woolly Wednesday!

:wave2: Good morning!

Malcolm just banged his head on the dishwsher -fortunately all was fixed with a hug and a rice cracker. I am making oatmeal for breakfast right now.
DH is rounding on his inpatients, then he has the rest of the day off

Love the pics of B, and the CongFu longies I would LOVE to have those spaceman longies

Considerations: this one is a 3-12 month size, so may fit large at nb stage and again in fall/winter. Or I cold have a custom one made for nb/xs stage only or for B!
hmm... that's a tough decision! IDK -I like the idea of a 3-12 month size that you could get longer use out of.

Re: Basically it's Woolly Wednesday!

I am usually the same when it come to shopping for the kids Cheryl. I did take Shannon with me the last time but she sat in the corner and watched cartoons while I picked out what I thought would fit her. She tried it on and then we left. She never looked at anything in the shop at all.

I LOVE the planet longies. I know that's something I couldn't make....

Heiner just came home with the package and I could cry it's all so wonderful!!!!!

Wooly Wednesday pic:


I just realized maybe this contributed to DH's foul mood. I know it's a way girly outfit as a whole, but I LOVED this shirt on the girls and with jeans and no necklace it's more butch. We aren't going anywhere this morning.

Re: Basically it's Woolly Wednesday!

Ian and his "girly" outfit! He is too cute!

for the package, Janine!

I think the space longies are just slightly bigger, and don't come with a shirt, which I don't need, so are less expensive. I think I see what needs to be done.

I think I need these for "Linus", as he has no brown longies yet.

Re: Basically it's Woolly Wednesday!

Hmmm, I edited it, so maybe it will work better now. I just realized the price on those! That is pretty high for interlock pants...I don't really need the hat. I may be able to find some for less.
I got the chocolat kimono in the mail the other day. It is so much prettier IRL than in the pic! There are lots of great colors in that yarn, more than just brown!
