Basically it's Friday!



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.

No, we've kept the rooms as they are. There is no way to fit all of the living room/office/dinning room into the kids room but this is working out well.

Thank you

I've done my best not to let my own internal discouragement wear off on her, but I'm sure she perceived it at times. Hoping hoping hoping we're on the road to finally being fully potty-trained!
and well done Emily.

When it is all settled you are going to LOVE it.
It's not been fun at all....and it seems we're not getting a break today or this weekend at all. Heiner has the chance to get a machine to clean up the hall of all of the tiles tonight. So now we're moving everything out of the hall so he can do that.

Being sick while all of this was going on hasn't be fun at all!

We had an inclement weather day today, that amounted to a bunch of slush/snow in the middle of the day, but nothing on either end. Busses would totally have been safe, but alas. We are supposed to get freezing rain again tonight. Why knows what tomorrow will hold on the weather front.

Today I had to advocate for myself, and then it seemed that suddenly I was the "bad guy" on staff. I am sorry, but just because I am the new kid doesn't mean you can walk all over me and expect me to take it. No. My mantras for today: Being a self-advocate does not make me a bad person / Sometimes when someone compliments you, you should say "thank you", and not "oh, it was nothing."

Glad tomorrow is Friday.
They slept really well last night

He looks totally different in his glasses. I hope he behaves with them...they are finished so he and I will go into town later to get them fitted properly.

Sorry about the stress at work Mel. I agree, You do have to look after yourself too.

We had to do a bit of work to get Derry's bed to fit in the space properly again...the wall is too close to the bed so we took off the head end of the single bed and attached it to the bunk beds. Now all three beds are one.

Morning all. Janine the demos look awesome. You really did a great job of using he space you have.
A juror questionnaire is something you fill out and send back to most likely get you called for jury duty. Which in The us is mandatory if are called. You sit in on a case to find guilt or innoncence. It can be a variety of cases from very minor to very severe. I don't mind per se but it will make things even crazier here

Tania, I used Alton Browns recipe. I liked the boil before baking part, gives it the right outside taste and feel.
