    What is going on with you this month? I am on a frantic search to find a dress for a formal wedding at the end of the month. And to try to get Alison to realize that tights are not out to make her life miserable.
    What is your LO('s) doing new? She knows almost all of her colors, she still gets mixed up on pink/red. And she talks in sentences. It is great to finally understand what she is talking about instead of just jibber jabber...although she still does that too! HA!
    How old is your LO('s)? She turned to on April 8th.
    Do they currently like bathtime? Yes! Thank goodness. There was a time there when bathtime was quite tramatic.
    What kind of soap/shampoo do you use on them? Aveeno
    Is anything new with your dh? Not really. He made me pancakes for breakfast this morning.
    What is on your nightstand right now? My alarm clock and my water cup.
    Is your mailbox on your side of the street or across the street? Across.
    What color is it? Black
    What is one household chore you despise? Unloading the dishwasher. I hate it and it hates me.
    Anything else you'd like to share? Nothing that I can really think of. Everything is pretty much the same old thing. Which is fine by me. Not a huge fan of drama.
    If you've been MIA - where have you been? I am here!!!

    What is going on with you this month? Isaiah has two music concerts --one Patriotic and the other is just strings (he plays the violin), I am in super psychologist mode at work, and the girls turn 2.5 on May 28. Oooh...and my last day of work before summer break is May 25! Getting ready for pool time!

    What is your LO('s) doing new? Isaiah had a fabulous parent/teacher conference today! Yay! Thanks to weekly counseling and probably some nice brain development, he is doing so much better with his anxiety and he is paying more attention at school. Yay! The girls are just chatterboxes and make so many fanstastic connections with their language. They are also singing many songs. Their colors are coming along. We are identifying some letters and numbers with better consistentcy. Sarafina is trying to learn to jump. That girls is behind with her physical milestones. I am not sure what to do there because she is not behind enough for PT.

    How old is your LO('s)? Isaiah - 8 years, 3 months; and Keira and Sarafina, 2 years, 5 months.

    Do they currently like bathtime? Isaiah takes a shower, but begs to take baths. The girls love baths until it is time to wash up.

    What kind of soap/shampoo do you use on them? Johnson's Honey Apple body wash and Biosilk Kids shampoo and conditioner

    Is anything new with your dh? He is trying and succeeding at keeping his blood pressure within the range of normal. He was told he had 3 months to get it under control. Yikes!

I have a bottle filled with water, my choreo notebook for Zumba, my current book that I am reading, Isaiah's violin practice CD, a book that Isaiah and I are reading together, an alarm clock, a lamp, two pictures, my cell phone, and I am pretty sure there are some coupons from TCP.

    Is your mailbox on your side of the street or across the street? It is in our neighbor's driveway. It is a communal mailbox with separate locked compartments for about 6 of us.

    What color is it? It is a tanish color.

    What is one household chore you despise? Cleaning the bathroom...but all of them are an acceptable answer here.

    Anything else you'd like to share? Nope...same old stuff going on for our family

    What is going on with you this month? Renos! We are working on the upstairs of our house. We are also finalizing our fostering situation so I will probably have a new child or two in the next month or so.

    What is your LO('s) doing new? DJ is pretty consistently using the potty. Starting to get Alicia psyched up about going to school in the fall. Alicia is riding the tricycle to death so we bought her a 2 wheeler for her birthday. I'm askeeered.

    Do they currently like bathtime? Most of the time. DJ is getting better with washing his hair since I convinced him to listen to the fishies (put his head down in the water to get rinsed). Every once in a while its a disaster, but then what isn't with kids? Oh, and Amber, I take my book into the bathroom and read for half an hour while they play like maniacs in the bathroom. Then its scrub up and out. Works for us and the never ending bath.

    What kind of soap/shampoo do you use on them? Aveeno Baby wash.

    Is anything new with your dh? No, not really. He's trying to loose weight and drink less beer.

    What is on your nightstand right now? A lamp, my tablet and the charger and a glass of water.

    Is your mailbox on your side of the street or across the street? I have a mailbox on my house, beside the front door. To mail things the nearest box is 4 blocks away on the side of the street. Its bright red.

    What color is it? Its red.

    What is one household chore you despise? Cleaning the kitty litter

    Anything else you'd like to share? Nothing much. Waiting anxiously for the garden to go in...I have seedlings ALL over my house.
