Germ farms

Yet another reason not to go to places like chuck e cheese……  they’re germ farms. The Kiddo apparently picked up a bug while there on Sunday, last night she threw up and had a mild fever.  Thankfully she slept thru the night without any further incidents, and she seems to be doing ok today so […]

Report on the birthday party yesterday

I think she did fairly well yesterday, considering that most of it happened during her normal nap time. When we first got there, the birthday girl’s family wasn’t there yet so we walked around looking at all the games and rides and such (it was at chuck e cheese), and she kept trying to get […]

Birthday parties

The Kiddo was invited to her first non-family birthday party this weekend.  It’s for one of her classmates in pre-school.  It should be interesting since the time is right about when she would normally go down for a nap if it were a school day, so I plan on letting her stay up a little […]

Overdue award thanks

I have not been ignoring the awards that have been left for me.  I’ve just been busy at work, which is usually when I do my blogging, so… Anyway, I’m taking a few minutes to do some thanks for the following rewards: From Judi @ Where the Road Takes Us, and Emily @ Mama & […]

Christmas Day will be quite interesting

The Kiddo is already super excited to see all of the different Christmas decorations that the stores are putting up for sale already.  W@l-M@rt has a tall Christmas Tree at each entrance with huge red & green unbreakable ornaments on them, and she always MUST go and look and inspect (and touch!!) the tree and […]

Picture Day

It’s picture day at her preschool today.  They did this earlier this year back in the spring, and those pictures turned out pretty well despite the fact that we totally missed the announcements about picture day and she wasn’t wearing anything special that day. LOL Today I dressed her in a red shirt and a […]

Listening skills: needs work

If the Kiddo has any faults right now, it is her listening skills.  Or, her lack thereof, shall we say.  We’re often repeating ourselves, although we try to limit it to no more than two or three times, with the threat of time out with the second repeat if it has to be said a […]

Holiday shopping for a toddler

Well, I guess she’s not quite a toddler anymore, I mean she’ll be three in January. When the ToysRUs big toy book came in the mail, we gave it to her to look through to try to gauge what she may be interested in having for Christmas and her birthday. The big hit was the […]

At least we can laugh about it now

There are a couple of things that the Kiddo did recently that I keep forgetting to talk about here that are kind of amusing… So, before I forget again…    The first thing happened one night after I put her to bed.  After about 15 minutes of quiet, we heard her open her door and […]
