Breaking up fights is sadly a big part of my day too. I'm hoping it will get better as they get older

It was a hugely busy morning and I'm shattered now. I didnt do much of anything last week because of the amnio so I had a lot to catch up on.

I'm really looking forward to my dinner. I just love paella I have home-made spicy pork sausage, chicken, fish and prawns to put in it. Its gonna taste soooo good

I still haven't figured out how to quote from a previous thread! So, I cut and pasted this, and now I can't remember who said it! Negrapy? I have a short one and a medium one. I can get some pics later.

wotb: GMD light brown w/ Hemp Babies doubler and wool shorties. I'm loving these pfs the last few days! My flats are getting bored sitting in the drawer!
I have to take some pics and list some covers today. Ya know how I went on a cover trialing craze, to figure out which ones I liked best!

Re: Just Another Back 2 Basics Manic Monday, Whoa Oh Whoa

For covers I basically only use 1 WAHM from Ebay...she has made 4 of them for the baby in 2-3 different batches and I have no complaints about any of them...they have aplix and have no gussets but I haven't had a problem with them containing the mess...even at daycare....

oh, and to multi-qoute from other threads what I do is either select all of the ones or one that you want to "move" to the new thread, hit the qoute button like you would in that thread and then copy the entire post that pops up in the reply box, then pull up the thread that you want to post in and past it in the box at the bottom....it shows ups purple if you copy the beginning and end QOUTES........

WWOTB: PF jelly rolled no cover..... result pooped and stayed in the diaper, now you know if that had been a sposie it would have been smeared all over Shannons bed (Cami like to climb up onto the top bunk and play there)

YAY for the jelly roll!

WOTB: jelly roll PFs snappied and FB cover with wool longies.

My reward for that is the crust slice of the fresh baked bread slathered with creamy salted butter

That sounds like my DS...he'll flirt with any lady, no matter their age. And a crafty party with the B2B mamas would be so awesome!

This morning I gave the girls breakfast, made their lunches (then I threw up), I got them dressed and sent them off to school and kindergarten with their granddad. I have cleaned the kitchen, cooked some rice (plain for Shannon) I have tidied the living room and sweet the kitchen and the hallway. I took out the chicken and now its in the oven roasting. I baked a loaf of wholemeal bread and gave Cami her lunch.

After all that I needed to take a nap with Cami so I did and now I'm going to pick up Derry from Kindergarten.

WOTB: my double PF jelly roll mix and a FB as a cover with crochet longies (Its cold here) made from the ladybug pattern (I didn't make it but I do have the pattern somewhere)

Wow. I was feeling pretty good about what I accomplished today until I read that, you rock!

I thought I quoted more than that, but apparently not. Hi mamas! I had a great 4-day weekend with DH home the whole time, so nice to have some down time with him. Mostly did a whole lot of nothing, cooked some great meals and hung out. Today was a nasty rainy day out so DS and I stayed home and I tried to get most of my housekeeping stuff for the week done. I got maybe halfway through my list of things that need to be done this week, so I guess that's better than nothing.

I haven't read through the weekend's threads, but Mel, I did see that your AF showed up. I'm sorry to hear that, I hope you can work something out with your donor to try again soon.
