How are you today (mood, health, whatever)? Feeling a little tired but otherwise ok.

Were you affected by Irene? Thankfully no, not at all.

Has your Moonbeam tried any new foods lately, if so did he/she like it or hate it? He tried a lemon and made a really funny face. He did not like it. He also got his first taste of chocolate milk which he LOVED - shoulda kept that one in the bag a bit longer!

What's your favorite part of the day? Putting the kids to bed. I love to snuggle their tired little bodies and feel them relax. Then I walk out, shut the door and feel a sense of peace and quiet - it's so nice.

Without looking it up define pecksniffian (I'll give you a hint - it's from Charles Dickens' time): I won't answer since I picked the word Smile

Are you into celebrities? Do you care about Beyonce's big baby announcement? I'm not into celebrities at all but I do love Beyonce. I think she's smart, beautiful, talented, and driven. I'm happy for her and hope all goes well. Other than that I'm really not that interested.

What was your favorite childhood book and do you read it to your Moonbeam? "Chicken Soup With Rice". Yes, I do. He doesn't sit still for books usually but we try every day!

How are you today (mood, health, whatever)? My mood is great- got my car home and went for a drive and did GREAT, went to Thailand and did some shopping (you can get lots of stuff there that you can't get here) which was fun and fun. Plus I got a Starbucks. I am however, very tired now, my legs are achy, and I have a headache because I have had way more coffee than water today. Drinking up now!

Were you affected by Irene? Nope.

Has your Moonbeam tried any new foods lately, if so did he/she like it or hate it? Hmmm... I feel like she has...but I can't think what. She was totally digging on some carrots the other day, but, it wasn't a new food, just the first time she actually ate it! She did the same with banana recently. Oh and apple! She loves apple now!

What's your favorite part of the day? Probably the morning when I get to sit and drink my coffee, Beni plays and watches the Wiggles, I check in here... it's calm and happy and good. Smile

Without looking it up define pecksniffian (I'll give you a hint - it's from Charles Dickens' time): I have no idea, but I'd guess someone lower class or some kind of laborer.

Are you into celebrities? Do you care about Beyonce's big baby announcement? I enjoy getting lost in celeb news now and then, but it's not like I've been waiting for this announcement. When I saw someone say something about it on FB, I googled it cause I wanted to see a pic...but I love baby bumps- on anyone! Smile

What was your favorite childhood book and do you read it to your Moonbeam?I'm going to say no, because I can't remember if I had one favorite book. I have always loved to read as long as I can remember, but, I don't remember being particularly attached to one book. As it is, I don't think we have any books that I had as a kid.

How are you today (mood, health, whatever)? So far so good. I'm at my pre pre baby weight (before I had my first) and have been holding steady for over a month. It feels good to wear old clothes Smile

Were you affected by Irene? Nope

Has your Moonbeam tried any new foods lately, if so did he/she like it or hate it? He got ahold of sissy's chocolate milk and loved it. He also LOVES pickles. He'll stand at the fridge and say "pick, pick" until someone comes and gives him one.

What's your favorite part of the day? 4:30 am. Its when I get up to workout and I have the entire house and TV to myself Smile

Without looking it up define pecksniffian (I'll give you a hint - it's from Charles Dickens' time): Couldn't tell ya. Sounds kinky though.

Are you into celebrities? Do you care about Beyonce's big baby announcement? I get my People magazine weekly and read it within the fist 24 hours of having it. So yes, I'm into them and care about Beyonce's annoucement. lol

What was your favorite childhood book and do you read it to your Moonbeam? I love you forever is a great book. I don't read it to Miles because he just tears the pages of books and eats them. But I do read it to my dd.

How are you today (mood, health, whatever)? Overall, I feel great - the past few weeks has been ups & downs but I am feeling ready to move forward!

Were you affected by Irene? Nope

Has your Moonbeam tried any new foods lately, if so did he/she like it or hate it? He is getting 8 teeth right now so he has gone back to soft stuff, his favorite thing is the squeezy baby food things that he can feed himself, yesterday at the store I got some Earth's Best fruit & yogurt smoothies in the squeeze packages & he ate 3!

What's your favorite part of the day? Morning - I leave Nics in bed & come down for coffee & a quick computer check. The house is clean & quiet.

Without looking it up define pecksniffian (I'll give you a hint - it's from Charles Dickens' time):Wow, it is a little early for this, maybe a snobby higher class lady?

Are you into celebrities? Do you care about Beyonce's big baby announcement? I am not into celebrities - it drives me crazy when I am watching the news & a celeb story is in the "headlines".... But, I do like Beyonce (one of Nico's favorites to dance to!), they both seem like smart, stable people so I am happy for them.

What was your favorite childhood book and do you read it to your Moonbeam? I didn't really have a favorite book, but I do read him all the books I read to DD 15 yrs ago!:)

How are you today (mood, health, whatever)? Tired, tired, tired! And awaiting GI test results

Were you affected by Irene? No, but most of us down here sort-of wished she'd have come in this direction. We've been hot with little to no rain for the past few months, which is saying a lot because our city normally gets 5 feet of rain yearly, most of it in the summer.

Has your Moonbeam tried any new foods lately, if so did he/she like it or hate it? I don't know if Eve has had anything different. We just give her some of whatever we're eating. She has never been picky, although she has tasted food then thrown it on the floor.

What's your favorite part of the day? When I'm getting off work and going to pick up the kids. Also, when I'm sleeping with Eve cuddled up next to me.

Without looking it up define pecksniffian (I'll give you a hint - it's from Charles Dickens' time): Someone so enamored with their place in life that they stick their noses up to all people they believe to be below their station.

Are you into celebrities? Do you care about Beyonce's big baby announcement? I don't necessarily go out of my way to find stuff out, but I do love to hear about celebrities and their babies. Babies are wonderful! And I knew it was coming because I read somewhere that Beyonce told some magazine that she was ready for a baby. OK, I guess I'm more into celebrity news than I initially thought I was Lol She's going to rock her baby bump, I'm sure. I love her style.

What was your favorite childhood book and do you read it to your Moonbeam? Hmmmmm, at first I thought I didn't have a favorite, but on further thought, I think it was a collection of Mother Goose nursery rhymes. I haven't seen that book since it got lost in a move back in 2000. I wish I still had it. Eve loves to be read to though. Whatever book she finds, she brings it to either DH or me and says, "Book, book, book" or "Read" until we take it from her and read it to her.

How are you today (mood, health, whatever)? I feel great. Had an awesome workout this morning and have a lovely afternoon ahead ~ running with my best friend and hitting up the farmers market before having dinner together with our boys.

Were you affected by Irene? Only lost some big limbs and a bit of havoc in our garden. Some friends are still without power.

Has your Moonbeam tried any new foods lately, if so did he/she like it or hate it? He had collard greens last night, which I think was a first. He liked them.

What's your favorite part of the day? Depends on the day, really. I pretty much love my days Smile We have a good routine of time together and time apart and it keeps anything from getting too hard.

Without looking it up define pecksniffian (I'll give you a hint - it's from Charles Dickens' time): Tobacco user.

Are you into celebrities? Do you care about Beyonce's big baby announcement? What big baby announcement? :o

What was your favorite childhood book and do you read it to your Moonbeam? We read nursery rhymes a lot, I loved them as a kid and my kids love them now.

How are you today (mood, health, whatever)? Yeah I guess I am OK, a bit tired the last couple of days because Aaron has finally decided to get up at 4.30am (I do forgive him because he has had so much sleep lately!) Got work this afternoon/evening and that's me time so am stoked for later! Wink

Were you affected by Irene? Not at all.

Has your Moonbeam tried any new foods lately, if so did he/she like it or hate it? He tried lettuce the other day, he kept grabbing at my salad and eating it, then spitting it out and then taking some again and doing the same thing but eventually he started to actually eat it and wanted more!

What's your favorite part of the day? Depends what day! Sometimes when it's my work day I look forward to going and earning some money but as much as I love my children, it's all good when they're tucked in bed and I am curled up reading a book Smile

Without looking it up define pecksniffian (I'll give you a hint - it's from Charles Dickens' time): Probably some pompous self righteous person but initially it reminds me of someone who pecks and sniffs their food before eating it (my cousin does this, most annoying, I mean, just eat it!)

Are you into celebrities? Do you care about Beyonce's big baby announcement? I'm not totally into them but I did hear the announcement and wish them the very best.

What was your favorite childhood book and do you read it to your Moonbeam? I never had a particular book I had as a favourite, I just read lots! Aaron sits still for a bit for me to read to him but right now they're mainly board books. I have bought back from work some Roald Dahl Books for my DD#1 to read, she's into them and asked me to get some, I was into R.D too at her age Smile

How are you today (mood, health, whatever)? I am feeling pretty good today! Leyla let us sleep from 12-7. She had been getting up every night from 1-3 or so the past few weeks. So between the sleep and getting workouts in my mood is nice today.

Were you affected by Irene? Our home was fine, thankfully. Roof didn't leak, no flooding in basement, etc. But my gym got flooded and won't reopen until next Tuesday! I've had to scramble to keep my momentum going.

Has your Moonbeam tried any new foods lately, if so did he/she like it or hate it? This kid eats anything and everything. She had Indian the other day and liked it, even the hotter stuff.

What's your favorite part of the day? Dusk. I love watching the sun set and the colors of the sky change. But actually my favorite time now is the night after the girls go to bed. They are really running me ragged lately.

Without looking it up define pecksniffian (I'll give you a hint - it's from Charles Dickens' time): Grouchy?

Are you into celebrities? Do you care about Beyonce's big baby announcement? I have to admit that I do follow celebrity gossip, though not as much as before. Beyonce has always annoyed me for some reason, but I am happy for them.

What was your favorite childhood book and do you read it to your Moonbeam? I don't remember books from back when I was really young. My first favorite book that I can remember is The Hobbit. I definitely plan on reading epic fantasy tales to them.

How are you today (mood, health, whatever)? Pretty good. Everyone slept all night last night so that always helps.

Were you affected by Irene? Nope. I'm so far away from hurricaine storms!

Has your Moonbeam tried any new foods lately, if so did he/she like it or hate it? He's really into my mom's home made pickles. We are the only 2 of the family who like pickles so we just hang out and snack right out of the jar together! Dirol

What's your favorite part of the day? Right after supper when everyone's fed and content and me and DH sit at the table and talk about our day and listen to and watch the kids play together.

Without looking it up define pecksniffian (I'll give you a hint - it's from Charles Dickens' time): No idea, but I agree w Steph, does sound kinky.

Are you into celebrities? Do you care about Beyonce's big baby announcement? not at all

What was your favorite childhood book and do you read it to your Moonbeam? I loved the Hungry Catepillar book but we don't have it. Which is nuts cuz we have every other book under the sun. :confused:

How are you today (mood, health, whatever)? Great! This is my DH's off Friday and he has Monday off for Labor day so we have a nice long weekend starting tonight. Biggrin

Were you affected by Irene? Not way down here in Texas. We are dealing with wildfires though. Sad Our state has been ravaged by them this summer.

Has your Moonbeam tried any new foods lately, if so did he/she like it or hate it? Raspberries are the newest food and she liked them. We stopped feeding them to her b/c of her diaper rashes though. She's still getting the rashes but fruit seems to make it worse so we have to limit her intake.

What's your favorite part of the day? I'd say first thing in the morning or when DH is home and we are all playing together. I do like nap time too. It's nice to get a break!

Without looking it up define pecksniffian (I'll give you a hint - it's from Charles Dickens' time): One who meddles in other people's business? I don't know what it means but I don't think I would want to hang out with a pecksniffian. Just the feeling I get.

Are you into celebrities? Do you care about Beyonce's big baby announcement? I'm not really into celebrity news or gossip for the most part. I'm happy for anyone who is capable of being a good parent and is pregnant though.

What was your favorite childhood book and do you read it to your Moonbeam? Brown Bear, Brown Bear and yes, I do! I have other favorites too that I would like to own at some point.

Has your Moonbeam tried any new foods lately, if so did he/she like it or hate it? he ate cauliflower today. I gave him chocolate milk recently and he LOVED that!

What's your favorite part of the day? 7 or 8 in the evening

Without looking it up define pecksniffian (I'll give you a hint - it's from Charles Dickens' time): umm... dont know. not feeling creative today

Are you into celebrities? Do you care about Beyonce's big baby announcement? Beyonce is pregnant? I didn't even know she was married/had a b'f.

What was your favorite childhood book and do you read it to your Moonbeam? Not yet... there were a lot that I liked. There was one I can't remember the name. It was about a mouse who was helping his family get ready for winter. All the other mice were gathering food and he was gathering colors so he could tell stories on cold winter days.
