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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
