Late night ramblings...


I went to bed later than Tim last night. When I came to bed he rolled over and mumbled something. I thought he was awake. This was our conversation...

Tim: "I think 5..."

Me: "5 what?"

Tim: "5 people"

Me: "5 people for what."

Tim: "5 people to help."

Me: "5 people to help with what?"

Tim: "5 people to help with food."

Me: "5 people to help with food for what?"

Tim: "For the picnic."

Me: "What picnic?"

Tim: "The company picnic."

Me: "Huh? What company picnic?"

Tim: Silence...

Me: "Honey, what picnic?!"

Tim: More silence...

Uhm...ya, I thought he was awake. I guess not...

Have mentioned just how much I love this man? He makes me laugh even when he's not trying...

(His place of employment doesn't have a company picnic. Only a Christmas party. Nor would they need help with food if they had one.)

Nursing cover-ups and other things.

I bought some fabric last night to make some nursing cover-ups. I can't wait to put them together today! I have enough material for about four. I didn't want to make too many just in case they didn't sell or I didn't care for how they turned out. I'm going to try and make one for myself too. =) I've really needed one and I can't believe I haven't gotten one made for myself yet. Let me know if you want one. I think I'm going to charge $20 (cost of shipping included) for one. Covers being sold on the Internet are going for about $32-$35. I'll be sure to take a picture of the ones I make! Remember that I'll always take more orders for bags too!



I started school with the boys this week. So far it's going pretty well. I can't believe how well Jonathan's doing with his reading! I'm so proud of him! I've also started Austin with some kindergarten work. My goal is to teach him to read this year and some basic math (counting to 100 and some addition). If I accomplish that than I'll be satisfied. Each year that goes by I enjoy homeschooling my children more. The first year was tough, the second year was still hard but not near as bad and this year I actually enjoy sitting with them for several hours and doing their school with them. Jonathan seems less frustrated since his reading has improved. This helps with my stress level immensely. I'm hoping and praying each year just gets better and better!



Grant has a tooth starting to peak through! I thought maybe he was starting to cut one because he's been drooling, has had a runny nose and was/is chewing on everything! He also had a low grade temp so I knew it wouldn't be long. Sure enough, yesterday morning I found a little, white tooth poking it's way through! =) Seriously- how is he old enough to be getting teeth already?! It's just not right. He needs to stop growing and changing so quickly! Plus, it just might cause me to get baby fever again! Okay...not really but maybe in another year or two. ;-)



I'm going to be cleaning out the house this week and next in preparation for a garage sale my sister and I are going to have. I have so much stuff laying around that I need to get rid of some of it. Might as well turn it into cash. ;-) I'm planning on selling my cloth diapers, allot of boys clothes, some of my homemade bags, nursing covers and allot of maternity clothing. It should be a big garage sale between what I have and what my sister has. If you're in the area- stop by! We'll be having it next Friday and Saturday (21st and 22nd).



So now you'll know if I haven't blogged why I haven't. Life just happens sometimes. =)

What's in 'your' fridge?!

Here's a look inside ours...



Potty training update!

I've been hesitant to write this (afraid he would regress) but I think it's safe now to say that Noah is potty-trained! I'm so proud of him! I decided last week that I wasn't going to put Noah in diapers anymore- not even at bedtime- and I think/know that's what did the trick! We had several accidents last week (about 1-2 x's a day) but now he's been accident free for almost three days now! Ya Noah!!! He was a little later with potty training than my other two but I think it was the right time for him. He's done great and it didn't take very long at all once I really started training him. The technique I used is my sister's and it really works! I won't get into it now but it's amazing and actually pretty simple! Will do it this way in a few years with Grant. I'm so thankful potty-training is complete with yet another one of my children. Potty training is NOT something I enjoy! ;-)
