Christmas day began with a THUD
Posted on December 25th, 2008 @ 6:15 pm

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 back, and she climbed right up, laid down on me and put her cheek against mine and we dozed like that for about ten minutes I guess, until her weight started to bother me being on my chest like that.

I think she came into our room because I had her humidifier on in her room for her stuffy nose, and she’d gotten cold (her little toesies were icicles).  After I’d had enough of 35 lbs on my chest I made the dumb mistake of having her lay to  my left on the bed, which is on the edge of the bed, thinking in a few minutes I’d take her back to her room for the rest of the night.

Countdown to Christmas
Posted on December 23rd, 2008 @ 7:15 am

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 which at a huge discount I was not expecting. Yay!

Countdown calendar
Posted on December 18th, 2008 @ 10:54 am

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 it is still a week away before she can do that.

Off to Grandma’s House
Posted on December 11th, 2008 @ 12:24 pm

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 tonight is morphing into her overnight stay instead.

I’m kind of bummed a little that it’s happening on a night we already had plans for and we won’t also get our weekend night without the Kiddo, but oh well.  It does mean we’ll probably get to sleep an extra ten minutes tomorrow morning before getting up to get ready for work. Whee.

Picture Day
Posted on November 11th, 2008 @ 11:01 am

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 pair of black leggings with a Christmas theme – candy canes, bows, snowflakes.  We don’t have any black shoes for her right now that fit so she is wearing her silver shoes with the toes worn down. 🙁   Oh well.  I also gave her teacher a little redc velvet clippy that I made a while back to put into her bangs before the pictures are taken.  There was no point in me putting the clippy on her earlier since she would just take it out and it would get lost.  She likes wearing bows and piggy/pony tails and such but doesn’t quite comprehend that they’re *supposed* to be left in the hair as long as possible. Heh.

Anyway I hope they turn out well.  We’ll probably buy the whole package again, which last time cost like $65 for the entire pack of 10 sheets in various sizes.  I’ll have to post one of them after we get them back so you can see my precious little girl. 🙂
