Sandra that sounds like more of a dinner than we are doing here. lol
The swing is pretty great and they seem to last forever, my sister got one with my oldest niece and it made its way through her three kids and my three of my brothers kids before the motor went out finally.
Yeah, I got a swing second hand when I had DD in 2007. It's been through all my kids and who knows how many before! But I wish it was a nicer one. It has no toys or anything, just a swing with buckles to strap baby in. It does play some songs.
I really want a new playmat. Ours got wrecked when DS2 was younger, and I keep finding ones second hand online but keep neglecting to arrange to pick them up.
Oh man!!!!!! Just saw a PPB Touring Tote listed on my local Kijiji for $30 :jawdrop: It's in excellent condition, in a pattern I like! I totally just emailed to see if it is available. Even though I already have 2 PPB bags.....LOL.
I got a playmat at the thrift store for five dollars, the Fisher Price Rainforrest one, and it is only missing one of the original link-a-doo things.
WOOT on the PPB tote, if I weren't so cheap I would totally get one.
Dang, it is already pending pickup, but I am second in line if the first lady doesn't show up!
I have that playmat also, it's super cute! My DD never used it really (or the swing or anything else that wasn't my arms ;)) but my DS loved that thing.

DD seems sick. Ugh. Lethargic, not eating and coughing. It's almost 3pm and I'm still in my PJs. So boring. :(
Boo, for K not feeling well, hopefully it is just some hay fever or something.
We got up stoopid early this morning, I tried to lay in bed and play asleep then DH made me get up... I am ready for bed.
:( I hate sick kids. I hope it is not too serious!
We were up early too today. DS1 is doing awesome with wearing underwear to bed but that means he gets up early to go pee and doesn't go back to sleep LOL. Thankfully I got a nap with DS2, but DS1 is SOOOOOO exhausted and will just have to keep being grumpy til bedtime!
My kids had swimming today, and we also went to a carnival at our church. There were bouncy castles, face painting, hot dogs and popcorn, and other games. They had a good time but I was tired of chasing around DS2.
I'm pretty sure something is wrong with K. A cold or something perhaps. We are downstairs now after 4 hours in bed. LOL. I was getting bored up there. I got her to eat some popcorn and drink some juice. Juice is only a birthday party treat around here and for when you're sick. She hadn't peed much today so I broke it out.
I was on my tablet earlier so typing was a pain. I forgot to say the pool thing is so great! I haven't been to the pool recently but we have a hot tub we've been going in a lot. We turned it down for K and my pregnant self. We went out last night and the night before after dinner. She'll play in there for like an hour and I just sit and watch. SO nice. She can touch the bottom this year which is nice! She couldn't touch last year and now it's SO low on her chest. She must have grown almost a foot in a year!
DH went to MIL's house today to haul stuff to the dump. She's a hoarder so it's good she's getting rid of stuff. A pick-up truck full every couple weeks. When DH bought our pick-up truck he KNEW his mom would 'make' him move stuff for him...so he got her to pay for half the truck! How perfect is that? Ok, it's only a 1992 F150, so not fancy...but it does the trick. We mainly wanted it to pull our travel trailer and have as a back-up vehicle. We drive our car the most.
Oh, speaking of travel trailer...I booked camping for next weekend! HA HA! I'm crazy, I know. Camping at 36 weeks. :P Not really. We have a trailer so I won't be sleeping on the ground. We picked a private RV park instead of the traditional camping we normally do where we have no services and lots of trees. The site is right on the ocean so even if I feel tired hubby can take DD to the beach. She has been so excited to camp that I didn't want the baby stuff to ruin this year for her. Also, because I booked a private site they said they will refund me if I have the baby early and can't make it. The Provincial sites wouldn't do that.
Ugh, I'm going insane. I think I need to go out when hubby gets back.
