Someone Doesn’t Like Me!

Someone just had it in for me today. Fortunately, they thought this morning’s yuck was enough, so the rest of the day wasn’t so bad. That or it was just someone else’s turn to have things go wrong. First of all, I was exhausted this morning because someone didn’t put the cats in the basement last night, so they were meowing outside the kids’ rooms most of the night. I…

Should He Stay Or Should He Go?

Well, tonight seems like a good night to talk kindergarten, especially since I just came from the Kindergarten Roundup (just in case). My dilemma is whether or not to try to have Mister Man attend kindergarten next year. His birthday is October 11, so he misses the cutoff. Easy decision, right? Not so much, for a number of reasons. I want to do the right thing for him, but I…

Priorities, Priorities

Sometimes my brain doesn’t work. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has this issue, but it’s awfully frustrating when I can’t see the forest for the trees. I hate causing problems for myself that should be easily solved. Today was one of those days. It’s a Tuesday, which means that I don’t work and both wee ones are at preschool, so I can get a lot done. Usually,…

Disney Angst!

To preface this, my parents are great. When it was just Mister Man and I worked full time, my parents watched him 2 days a week, meeting my husband at his school and taking him to their house, then returning him at the end of the day. Even now, my parents watch both of them one day a week when I’m working (the other two days – like today –…

So What Happened Next? What Happened Next?

My dad has been asking for the last two weeks if he could take Mister Man to go see Horton Hears a Who. I hadn’t been able to give him an answer definitively one way or the other. Yes, Mister Man is just about 4 ½, but he’s never been to the movie theater. In fact, he’s only seen a few movies (thanks to my parents, a few more than…

Not That I’m Stubborn Or Anything…

At least I know where Little Miss gets her stubbornness from. The jeans I had been wearing were … wearing out, plus they were too big (I know, everyone should have such a problem!). I hate buying jeans because I get comfortable in mine and like the way they fit and can never find jeans like them again. When my second to last pair wore out in the knee, I…

Proof That I Need To Take Care Of Myself More Often…

I had my massage today. It was lovely. Especially after I went running this morning in 26 degree weather. Thank God it was sunny. And my friend made me go. So I’ve apparently not been there in awhile. You’d think that I’d know this because I couldn’t tell you for the life of me the last time I was there. Or maybe because my knots had knots. Or maybe because…

I Feel So Decadent…

Back in January, my parents added an item to our calendar at home. “Aquarium” it said. 8am. When I asked my mom about it, she told me that she was going to take the wee ones to the aquarium on Thursday of spring break. Auntie Megan volunteers there, and she wanted to show them the museum. If they were going to leave at 8am, my mom decided they needed to…

My Little Boy Is Growing Up…

So yesterday Mister Man learned how to use the brakes on his bike. Today, he did a playdate by himself. As you may or may not know, my son is slightly special needs. He was very delayed in his speech and started speech therapy when he was 17 months old and still made no sounds. We found that part of the reason he didn’t talk was his low muscle tone,…

Some Things Take Awhile To Sink In…

… but when they do, they’re in for good! We actually had a decent day in terms of weather today. I was so shocked. In fact, we went to the Children’s Museum this morning, and I dressed the kids in their winter coats and hats. I didn’t exactly make them zipper up when we left at one. In fact, when they woke up from their naps (yep, we still nap)…
