Kids & Family

Our “Oh, so fun!” Weekend.

Friday started out good…Dh took me out to lunch at my fave restaurant. Then we had plans to get new blinds for our dd’s room (the one we redid). But we must have miscalculated the time because when we were done with lunch, I realized I had to rush to get to dd’s school. They were having their Halloween parade and party (costumes and...

Horror Movies for Toddlers?

I ran across a post on a blog recently about a parent that lets their 3 year old child watch horror movies. This person went on to describe how the child now won’t eat pumpkin because it’s afraid of them. I was shocked, so I left a quick comment about those movies not being appropriate for a 3 year old. I don’t expect the...

A Minor Miracle.

A couple days ago I woke up in a less-than-motherly mood. And my 3yr old woke up in a less-than-obedient mood. We butted heads over getting dressed and it actually took 45 minutes beginning to end. Fun, huh? Then it was time to go on our walk. We discussed how he was supposed to behave, to sit and not try to run around. (Two...

Bad Drug Reaction!

Entrecard friends, sorry I was MIA yesterday…we had a crazy afternoon and something scary happen last night that kept me off the computer and nearly put me in the hospital. My luck lately has not been good! I had a very bad migraine yesterday evening and took some Exc. Migr. like normal. My sinuses were also killing me (part of the reason my head...

Outdoor School.

First off, thanks for your well wishes for my burn. TMI, but it’s scabbing over..not real pretty. And I am absolutely not doing hot wax again! My parents left WY yesterday, so they should be here tomorrow. My dd has outdoor school next week and the school asked for parent volunteers to be chaperons for the kids. I didn’t think it would be good...

Cozy Pajamas and Thick Quilts.

A finally gave in and pulled the quilts out of the closet. I love the quilt season, just hate the snow that inevitably follows autumn. Our leaves are turning colors nicely and the air is beginning to have that crispness to it. We put some of our pumpkins on the front porch and our neighbor came by today with some corn stalks complete the...

For or Against Co-Sleeping?

When I was a teenager, I had a few of those, “When I have kids, I’ll never…” You know how that goes. Spank, make a kid sit at the table until they’re done with their dinner, make them do chores, say things like, “Because I’m the mom!”, and co-sleep. Well, I’ve stuck by the dinner one at least. I’ve blown the other ones. Even...

Sleeping Troubles…Again.

Our second child, Pierce, is 3. He’s my high-maintenance one. From the time he was a week old, he wanted to be stuck back to me. I would go to bed and Paul (who always stays up later than me) would take the midnight feeding. For about 5-6 nights (at a week), baby would cry for 2-3 hours, no matter what we did. One...
