I've seen that too, it was good!

DH started the shower and she only woke up when I carried her in there to clean her up. And the youngers slept right through it. Thank GOD I had the foresight to move Ian's bed over and put the bucket there, the damage was minimal as far as I could tell in the lowlight.

She's clean, in new jammies, and passed out next to me on the couch - got her wish. The pukey stuff is in the washer and I cleaned and sterilized the path from ground zero to the bathroom best I could. Decided not to clean the tub, lest we have a repeat performance.

And DH is on the way to the airport to pick up MIL. Boy, what timing.
Oh goodness, I'm glad she is ok

Actually, his skin is looking much better this evening, and he slept all evening, and I wonder if today's crying was teething, as he's also drooling like a madman and chewing on my shoulder or arm when not hungry, lol. I'll see how he is tomorrow though.
Scary!

What do I need to be doing with him? No preschools here that we can get to/afford....
Cami is only 3 weeks younger than E and she doesn't know her letters either. Don't worry about it.

Even on the "classical homeschooling" board I'm on ( if only they knew...) those are some of the top tools for learning letters/reading. Also Starfall.com. Chloe learned all of hers from the Signing Time ABC practice DVD but she's... Chloe .
He really is!

Re: Basically It's Friday!!!

I think I really only work well with a routine. It seems I have to start the routine in order too or it just isn't going to happen and I find myself not getting anything done.

So it looks like this.

Kids up and dressed,
make lunches,
feed kids, brush hair, teeth, wash faces,
Coats/boots on....out the door.

Nurse Fynn, Change nappy and get Fynn dressed,
Make the girls beds, fold the girls Jammies, make my bed,
Open all the binds and pick up and washing on the floor in the bathroom,
Wash nappies (if needed)
Check the kitchen for dishes and empty the dishwasher.

IDK why but if I do all that I somehow have my motivation to get going and be productive for the day. If I dont I slob about in the living room and do nothing really.

WFD: pasta with green beans/bacon in a cream cheese sauce

I'm still tired and just want to go to sleep....roll on nap time!

Fynn is sleeping and I've cut up more hats....are the colour combos ok? They make me want to run screaming from the room but I like Uni-coloured stuff so that's not surprising

Re: Basically It's Friday!!!


Yesterday was a long, but fun day!
I am so ready for the biggers to get off to school. Too bad DH is home from work today, I think I only have one nerve left, and I'm sure he will get on it.
I am heading off to Kohl's this morning to use my Kohl's cash to buy a few more big mama clothes. I need another few pairs of pants and some more cold weather tops. I hate buying stuff I will only wear for a short time!!

Ok, off to take A to the bus stop and run to Kohl's. Good thing about DH being home, is that I don't have to shop with B!!!
