Christmas day began with a THUD

And no, I’m sorry to say it wasn’t Santa’s reindeer stomping on our roof. Sometime in the middle of the night, the Kiddo came into our room and got into bed on my side.  I was aware of this, because when she first got in bed, she laid completely ON me.   I was on my […]

Countdown to Christmas

Only a couple of days left – are you done shopping? We are, with the exception of some sodas for the holiday party and a few other food items. But as of yesterday our gift shopping is complete, I had two things left to pick up and I was able to get those, one of […]

Countdown calendar

Yesterday my husband came up with the idea of making a countdown calendar for the Kiddo, to help her see how many days are left before she gets her presents.  Every single day she asks, “my presents?”, so she grasps the concept that she’ll be getting to open presents, however she doesn’t quite get that […]

She’s rocking the piggy tails

Ever since she stayed over at her grandmother’s house and MIL put piggy tails on her for school last Friday, the Kiddo has been all about the piggy tails.  Every single day.  So now to our morning routine we’ve added putting her hair up in piggy tails before we head off to take her to […]

Off to Grandma’s House

Well, the Kiddo is going to her grandmother’s house tonight after preschool.   Originally it was just to be babysat for a couple of hours while my husband and I went to a Christmas show, but I guess his mom has a party to go to this weekend on the Kiddo’s normal overnight day, so […]

Found: My Sweet Toddler

Man last week was rough. I hope she doesn’t sprain another limb for a LONG time.  It took three days before we could remove the shirt she was wearing the day she got hurt, and another day after that to convince her a warm bath would help her arm.  Then Friday, she suddenly realized her […]

Pink pink pink!

The girl likes pink.  So in honor of her favorite color, it is Christmas in Pink! I still need to adjust the EC widget, but otherwise I think this one is set.  Oops, need to correct the links in the nav bar, but otherwise I think everything is working OK on this.  I still need […]

Sleep, sleep, SLEEP!!

This is driving me crazy.  The Kiddo has yet to take her afternoon nap.  Usually she hits the pillow at around 12-1p.  This week I’ve been letting her have a movie play (usually Tinkerbell) very quietly on the imac while she naps.  Today I put in Cars, so I don’t know if it is partially […]

What a way to start the week!

Last week it was a tummy bug.  THIS week, not even three hours of being at school, I get a call from her daycare director letting me know that she had fallen or tripped outside on the playground and had hurt her wrist.  At the time the director called it had been about 10 minutes […]
