Morning all!

Sorry for the circus Jules.

Candace - hope the girls get some releif soon, lol.

Peg - LOVE the siggy pic, haven't had a chance to look at the others yet.

Miles seems to be all better. Still a little snotty, but nothing that I can't handle. I'm still feeling like crap but at least I can take something to make myself feel better.

Company arrives sometime this afternoon. A 4 year old, two 3 year olds and an almost 2 year old. I see many, many tantrums in my future. Then 26 kids for the party on Saturday!!! (Next time I know not to plan for people not being able to come).

I never got my washer cleaned yesterday because it started making funny noises so I decided to just ignore it instead. LOL.

A new day, I'm gonna try to stay caught up.

PJ, so sorry you missed the sub call. Maybe you will have another opportunity with them...sounds like they could use some positive reinforcement. I bet just knowing their name will mean a lot to them!

Kristi - OUCH for Cheyenne. How'd she take it? Hope it feels better soon!

Colleen, did it rain during the game? Boo to staying up late for laundry!

So funny yall were talking about cleaning the washer - I wiped mine down good this weekend where powdered detergent had caked up all in the agitator and other various places. And speaking of, I think the agitator is stripped. Ugh, I need to get it fixed asap, but think it will have to wait until next week.

I'm probably jinxing myself, but Wade has been asleep since 12:30am - unless I got up in the night with him and don't remember it....?! CRAZY! My boobies are about to explode.

no it didn't rain during the game....i rained for like 30 minutes before the game........so everything was wet......so LOTS of mud stained kids clothes last night......
and go mr. wade!!!!!!!! i did LOL at the getting up in the middle of the night but not remembering it........i blend all my day's /nights together......i can never remember if i got up......LOL......and please no boob explosions!!!LOL!!!!

Oh my goodness last nite was such a comedy show of a circus! I feel hungover, except I didn't get the pleasure of having any alcohol last nite to make me feel this way, lol!

Peej, so sorry you fell! AND missed the sub job! Sad
Bullying stuff is so freakin' sad, horrible. Peg, that's so sad about your nephew, I hate that. Things are just so scary now with kids, and starting so young. I really do blame the parents for the vast majority of it.

Kristi, poor Cheyenne!!! Awwww!!! How's her hand today? Is she still sick or did her hurty hand keep waking her up?

Candace Yahoo for Wade sleeping so well! WHOOHOOO!!! How's the party planning going?

Colleen is Abby all better now? And did you say there's another game today? At least you are washing her pants, I remember girls wearing the same ratty clothing game after game!

Oh yeah, Peg I gots no clue on the downloads! I would THINK you could buy them and download as many times on as many devices as you want...but hell if I know for sure!

no game today.........it's pooring and we have had a lot of thunder /lightning this morning...very unusual to have that in april around here.....and i can't stand when the girls pants are still all stained up.....i'm sure i'll use a whole bottle of spray/wash on sarah's uniform pants alone in the next 8 weeks......LOL!!!!!!!! never mind jacks blowouts!!!! LOL!!!!!!!
and abby is just got a drippy nose, but is nowhere near feeling better.....no fever......but we are on tantrum #3 already today........the girl is gonna need anger management(like her brother max).....her and lucy were playing nice with lucy's slinky on the stairs....making it walk......abby wanted it, lucy yelled no......abby stole it and ran away and then broke it......she freaking snapped a big piece right off!!!! so she is sitting at the kitchen table indefinately right now.......but the virus is going away, but her attitude needs adjustment!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!!!!

Ooooooooooo my goodness, thatsa lotta kids, lol!! Yeah you don't want the kids there with no parents, could you imagine! But good thing for the party at MIL's, I think it would be good there no matter what...let them mess her place up instead of yours, lol!

Yeah Daphne has started shrieking now, which is pretty funny...but she keeps rolling onto her back at night. At least she's not crying like she used to, but she's shrieking these ear splitters, gotta go turn her over, etc. Just couldn't sleep at all, every time I'd start to doze off, she'd be shrieking again. And Colby kept yelling out like a fire alarm then he'd go right back to sleep. Is is a full moon, lol?????

this was my whole month last month.........everynight.....roll/flip........yell/scream/cry from the other room........oy vey...........sorry it musta passed on to your house........:bigarmhug:

Hi again, we just got home from the indoor playground, Aidan had a great time and we had a free coupon. One parent even came up to me to tell me how well behaved Aidan was and now nice he was with the other kids.....then it was time to go home lol, someone had to hold the door for me while I carried William in his carseat in one arm and a screaming Aidan under the other arm. ugh, it's so much fun for him but I want him to see tha I don't want to go there if he's going to throw fits when it's time to leave, I want him to realize that we can go back if he's good. Maybe I'll skip next week and remind him of how he acted? if he even remembers by then. 3 is hard lol.

Rolling, I remember Aidan rolled from his front to his back at one month. William can barely hold his head up during tummy time let alone roll lol. 3 weeks early makes a huge difference I've noticed, or he's just going to have to be really good looking because he may not be as smart as Aidan LOL, yeah I'm a good mom eh? ROFL

Allie, good job going out with both boys!! Too bad Aidan threw a fit leaving, but sounds like he was good otherwise, so that's encouraging. I think they definitely remember stuff within a week's time span!

Oh, and I laughed at the "he better be good looking" remark. Smile It has been truly amazing to see how different all three mine have been as far as eating/sleeping/rolling/talking patterns, and those are just the early things I can name. Wade JUST started rolling back to belly in the past week.

Oh yeah, that turkey slept until 10am!!! Some family came over last night to eat cake for dh's bday. I was so tired when the left and nursed Wade about 10pm and we both went to sleep in the chair. Woke up still holding him at midnight, fed him again and put him in the bed. So that was a good 10 hour stretch!! I might have to start dreamfeeding him every night because he usually wakes up around 1 or 2am - maybe if I catch him before that it won't disrupt his sleep so much. :dontknow:

About to put the munchkins down for a nap. We went out to the post office earlier. Need to get something accomplished during nap time. We'll see...

Candace- sounds like dreamfeeding my just be your magic key.

lucy is going to start t-ball in may, too...........to get all the grass stains and mud........i use spray n wash and i use a very firm scrub brush.......and scalding hot water......and do it immediately when you get home........don't wait......it just gets harder!!!!!!!!!! if you can't get to it .......i will usually soak them in the sink with laundry detergent knuckle scrubbed right on the stains........i hope he has fun!!!!!!!

candace.......wow on the 10 hour stretch!!!!!!! and jack just started rolling from back to belly last week too........LOL.........

i have done so little today.......but have played with moon sand, playdoh, and made 10 different potatoe head guys with the girls.........jack chewed on the arms and shoes.....LOL........oh and school.......but really nothing productive......LOL!!!!!!! off to go produce!!!!:cool:

Ok, going to try and do this without multi quoting, but it totallt sucks not being able to get on here in the mornings. 7:45 is just too dang early to have to have everyone dressed and out the door. I really liked the circle drive drop-off option at his old PS.

Peej, sorry you missed the call and you fell.

Wendy, glad you popped your head out of your butt and remembered you could check in with your phone. Hey, I signed up for your blog yesterday. Yahoo Awesome blog!!!! And I was just being an asshat about you head up the butt syndrome, Wink

Kristi, give poor Cheyenne a hug from me. How long was Wyatt in timeout for that little number?

Peg, you can download them later and I do believe you can download them for infinity. I know the songs I bought for Jax 1 year video montage are still available for me to download again.

Candace, I asked DH one Saturday, 'was I up 5 times last night, or was that the night before?' and I seriously asked this before I ever finished my first cup of coffee. LOL About matching outfits, If their birth order was reversed, I'd totally do it. But, I can't bring myself to put Jax through that at his age. I think it's weird for an older brother to match his little sister, but adorable for a baby brother to match his older sister. Hey, I never claimed to be 'normal'. Wink

Jules, sorry for the rotten night. Sad

Emily, glad Miles is feeling better. Um, Don't tell me all those kids that are arriving today are actually sleeping at your house. :eek: I'd freak the hell out.

Hi Karrie, how the heck are you? You haven't posted more than just quick responses in a couple of days. Hope you are just busy at work, and somethings not wrong.

Hey Allie, I'm right there with you on not jinxing myself, so I'm not even going to mention how many nights in a row both kids have let me STTN. Wink

Hey Coll, glad the softball game didn't have to be watched from the truck. Sorry Abby is not feeling well. And add Jax to the anger management therapy. I'm signing him tomorrow. LOL Actually, he's been better the last 2 weeks, but that doesn't mean someone isn't going to pee in his Cheerios in the next 2 minutes. Wink

Allie, I'll share what I do with the indoor playground. It used to be impossible to leave there. And quite honestly, avoiding it and telling him why we weren't going didn't help matters. I went with a good ole reward system. "Jax, we are going to Hopscotch, if you leave there without having a fit, then we will stop and get french fries on the way home, but if you pitch a fit when it's time to leave we are NOT going to get french fries and will come straight home for a nap." I just keep reminding him of it while he's playing and then I always give him 3 warnings about 5 minutes apart that we are going to be leaving soon. Obviously the key is that you do have to NOT get french fries the first time. Cuz if Aidan is anything like Jax, then he won't believe you and he will have a fit when it comes time to leave. I even pointed out that we were driving by Sonic and I said "wave bye to Sonic, we aren't getting french fries because you pitched a fit." I know, I'm a mean rotten mom, but we don't have tanrums when it's time to leave. LOL

Kat, did Josh do better at school today?

He actually asked to get down out of the car at school. He still almost startes crying, but he did really well. Still didnt eat at lunch. Today was hamburgers. To bad I can make his lunch. I dont think rice and beans would be to good after sitting out for a while.

KAt, don't sweat it, he's doing really good. It sounds like this going to be a very good experience for him. I bet he will start trying more things especially because everyone else is eating it.

I ended up getting the class afterall!

Seriously it was a disaster of a morning

Miss the sub call fall down the stairs. Principal calls me has another sub call but wants me back in the 4th grade classroom yesterday. Can't find my keys. Frantically looking. Call the principal as I am now going to be late as I still have to get Landon to school. He is going to find someone to get me LOL. I tell him I will call Tina. He calls me back and says they found my keys at school LOL. (I left a pair there on Tues, and locked the other in my car last night) :rolleyes:. Tina grabs my keys when she drops CeJay off and I get there 4 minutes late. Whew.

Anyway, we had such a great day. First of all a sub has never came BACK to them. I think they just feel like an abandoned class so are just living up to their naughty role. Their original teacher was fired mid-nov (which is a whole diff story) and now have a perm sub who is really doing the best she can.. but :dontknow: I did get flipped off the first 15 minutes because I set some rules in the beginning after learning a few things yesterday about them Wink and I just wasn't going to put up with it today. Well, after that incident and he spent the hour in the office it was like we all just clicked. There was a lot going on that day outside with the bullying, but I think that was because the principal had a talk with all the girls individually and some all together throughout the morning. So issues were going to arise. Regardless we all survived in the room TOGETHER, but the second the freedom of outside happened it was like ahhhhhhhhhhhhh

anyway, I may be back tomorrow we shall see. The kids think their perm sub has now left them and I am the one staying. Which is not the case they just don't know what to believe anymore :confused:

anyway that was a huge talk that you can just pass up lol I am POOPED though! Seriously teachers should have more of a counseling background than what we are given. I am glad I had two years of psych...but WOW!

ok Landon needs water! I don't know his cough morning and night is getting ridiculous? Maybe his flovent needs to increase? blah

Ahhhhhhh, yes no flipping last nite, I can't believe it! I woke up at 5:45 in a semi panic...and thought like Candace...did I get up with her last nite or not??!?!?!?!?!? LOL! Hoooo boy, that was nice!!

PJ, I'm sorry Landon's having issues, poor kid. That makes me sad he's having problems with coughing and breathing. Sad Go get em girl in the classroom today!!!!!

Emily, I'm with Mel...sure you won't see this, but yeahhhhhhhhhhhh, have fun with the houseful of kids!!!!! And Happy Birthday Miles!!

Colleen, thought of you last nite when Colby purposefully tried to break something of Daphne's....and he was sitting at the table...I thought, hmmmm, he and Abby would make great table friends, lol!!! Sorry she was a turkey yesterday too!!!

Kristi, how's Cheyenne's hand?? And sorry for the rough one for you as well!!!

Allie, I'm all about bribery to get good behavior too, lol. I'm sure it's not what the experts say to do, but there's no expert with me when I'm trying to get something accomplished, lol!! I betcha Aidan will need one time to learn his lesson!

Kat, I'm so glad everyday seems to be getting easier for Josh! Whoohooo!!

Karrie hope you guys are doing good!!

Candace, how did Wade do last nite, did you dream feed him?

Okey dokey, the little bird is up from her cat nap...I got showered and dressed before 8am! Yahoo Seriously, I've said it before but kudos to all you working moms who get showered, dressed, wake baby/kids, feed baby/kids, get out the door all before I've usually even brushed my teeth....you guys rock!

Candace- Sorry you got so little sleep. I can imagine how hard that is with three little ones.

Julie- Woohoo on getting some much needed sleep and for getting to shower by 8.

PJ- what a crazy day you had yesterday. Hope you and Landon have a better one today.

There is some drama surrounding my step sisters wedding. In the end she kicked my other sister out and uninvited my mom(her step mom). She has ben pretty disrepctful to my mom but at the same time my mom hasa an anger issue and I can imagin my mom acted a little crazy about everything. But now my mom was crying yesterday and it made me feel really bad. I am torn between staying out of the mess and being in the wedding and mentioning how things have gone too far. Oh the woes of family drama. It just kills me to see my mom so upset though. I think the worst is that her husband has yet to stick up for her on anything and my other sister says they were talking about divorce.

good morning, I'm on a cupcake break, I'm baking them for Aidan's birthday tomorrow, I'm going to make them multi coloured and different flavours for icing, we have bubble gum, key lime, chocolate hazelnut, I may even make some Pina Colada ones for the adults lol. Tomorrow we're going to Jordan's for a birthday playdate since I"m not throwing him an actual birthday party (other than the family one that is) so I'm going to bring cupcakes and some sandwiches for the littles.

Julie-Woot for 11 hours of sleep, I can't wait for that day lol.

PJ- Sorry for the classroom drama, but if anyone can get those kids to turn around it's you Smile

Emily- I don't envy you right now LOL, I say slip some Grand Marnier in your coffee today lol

Kat- Sad situation about your sis. I hate family drama, I have a very small family, but it still happens. Ugh. I hope Josh has an even better day today. oh and expect Monday to be a bit rough again. they get used to those 2 days off and usually pitch a bit of a fit, but hey, if he surprises you and goes in on his own, that's even better Biggrin

Crap, I forgot to put a breast pad in and my clean shirt is soaked, booooo.

Sleep. same as the night before Biggrin that's all I'm going to say.

ROFL Colleen!!! That made me think of some show I saw...oh wait it was sex and the city...carrie had jury duty and the dude sitting next to her would open his briefcase and take out a piece of fruit and just hold it...but weird fruit, like a whole pineapple, lol. Tell Dan he's gotta start acting weird in that joint, lol!!!!!

kat sorry about all the drama...that's really hard having to be in the middle. Would your mom understand if you were in the wedding?

Mel, whatever happened with the MJ purchase? I know that newer set you showed I thought wasn't from ebay...

Allie mmmmm mmmmm those cupcakes sound AWESOME!!! YUM!!! Eat one for me!!! And William will get the sleep, and so will momma....SOON!

Ruth, that's a great correction...positive reinforcement is used a lot here lately, lol!!

Candace I'm sorry it was a rough night. Sad Awwww, you need some rest girl.

Dang, Daphne is a good girl...ran errands and she's finally okay with the car seat for the most part! Able to bring her in the store and keep her in the seat on the cart just like everyone else does! Yahoo Yippeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!

I was just going to say the same thing. Bribery is when the reward is offered before the desired behavior.

Hey Mel how does J&J clothing run? And what are the normal prices for used?? I'm trying to find stuff for Colby's 3 year pics, want to have D in some shots...3M stuff is way too small for her, 6M will fit her chest if it's a dress.

Awe Kat, family drama stinks. Everyone has one of 'those' relatives. Sad

Colleen, LMAO over the texts that is HILARIOUS. Poor Danny. Have a beer nice and cold for him. The poor man deserves it.

Julie, I don't even want to discuss MJ. I'm about to freak out. And no, all of the recent mj has been off ebay. I've had 3 opportunities to to get a dress and ruffles for her b-day and I've dinked around and still do not own one. i did buy her a cute set off Gymbofriends for winter.

Allie, when you said you were taking a cupcake break, I thought you meant you were eating one. LOL Then it occured to me you were taking a break from making them. LOL

So, I returned Jax's Easter outfit today. It was on super clearance online, plus I had a 15% coupon and a free ship coupon, so I re-ordered it all last night and saved myself $30. BUT, while I was in TCP, I checked out some jeans. And I bought 2 pair. They are crazy adorable on sale for 9.97, plus I had another 15% coupon. LOL They were originally $19.95 :eek: It's still pretty cold here in the mornings, like too cold to send him to school in shorts, and Jax has only one pair of pants that he hasn't grown too tall for. Hopefully, he continues to follow his growth pattern and these will still fit in the fall. LOVE them and I'm so glad I got them. DH wanted me to buy them back in Feb when we were in TCP together and I told him I don't spend 20 bones on a pair of jeans. LOL Anyway, they are distressed a darker pair with gold thread and a lighter pair with gray thread.

Their layette sizes run HUGE. Abigail is 19 lbs and 28+" and she is STILL wearing 6-12, and didn't move out of 3-6 until very late Febuary. I'll check out that link and see what you are looking at. I thought I could do from the 'quote reply' window, but I can't.

Jules, that starting bid is way too high. That dress is old (2005) and it's the old sizing. It is not a 3-6 month, it is a 0-6 month, it just fits like a new J&J 3-6. She says this in her auction.

Gotcha! I've got lots of other stuff I'm watching, and I'm sure I'll miss out on them....what's a good starting price for J&J that's newer?? Guess it depends on the line?? I just seem to like the stuff I've seen, and probably will go with that brand. And of course you know I didn't read up on what she said, LOL!!!!

Hey, I have a beautiful Gap dress from their Cherry Blossom line from last spring. Abigail never wore it because I got a 3-6 and it was just too big for her all summer. Sad I'll see if I can find the SKU. I swear to you, I promise if you want it, I'll stick it in a poly mailer, print the postage online and walk it out to me mailbox.

Her starting bid was too high because layette stuff sells DIRT CHEAP. No one is willing to pay the same price for layette sizing that they would for the exact same dress in a 2T.
Shoot me links, (or pm them to me, I'd be afraid lurkers will shill bid you Wink ) I'll let you know if something was known to run big or small, or how much it should sell for.

That is adorable, Mel. Daphne would look super cute in it! Smile Hey Julie, do you think Daphne will be in 18mths next fall/winter? I was gonna pass along some of Ella's stuff to ya, but found out this morning my SIL IS PREGGO!!!! Her due date is Jan 3, I think - I am so happy for them. My brother will be a great dad. Feel bad for my other bro and his wife though...married and trying for 5 years and still no kids. Sad

[eta : gonna wait and see if they are having a boy or girl and Ella doesn't have much "good stuff" anyway that really fit her. Sad ]

Anyway, dh bought some Sports Illustrated magazines off ebay about a month ago and they never shipped. Twelve days ago seller said they were in the mail, but they aren't here yet and now he won't communicate with us. Do I contace ebay customer service?

Jules, what is Colby wearing? Were you looking for something with green in it to coordinate?

Yes Candace, I think you file a complaint with both ebay and I HOPE YOU PAID WITH pp, cuz you also go to your paypal account and file a dispute. Paypal alsways sides with the buyer, especially because it's the sellers responsibility to mail with delivery confirmation.
