Looking up!

So, girlfriend went to the specialist first thing yesterday morning. This Dr. sees the most severe cases and was not nearly as alarmed as her OBGYN. (Who told her she was funneling. She googled it, and there was not ONE happy ending that she could find).

Whew! Now it is just a matter of keeping her down!! She has an almost 5 year old, and an almost 3 year old. For her sake, I hope she goes on hospital bed rest. That is the only way that she will stay down and in bed!! Once that nesting instinct kicks in, it can be very hard to keep us girls down! I painted my nursery about a dozen times before I found the right shade of green...Hormones!!!

Thank you to....

mom and kids at home and

I googled how to get T's ballet tights clean. I get so frustrated because after one use they get dingy stains that do NOT come out!! The answer? Bathroom bar of soap. I used Ivory. It was like magic!

This woman's blog saved me hours of frustrated scrubbing! Now I am off to see what else Ivory can solve! Will it be like Windex from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"? I will let y'all know!

T just ran in...

and looked VERY serious. "Mama, I don't want to wear bows in my hair anymore". After I picked myself off the floor,she got a devilish grin and... " Just jokin' Mama...I would wook soooo silwy without any more bows... How would I get coorwdinated?" She said as she rolls her eyes to the sky and shrugs her shoulders.

Four going on 14!

Preppy school finds!

No, it's no secret that money is tight these days. But I would never let it interfere with dressing my kids as preppy as possible. Hey, they are getting older by the minute and I need to strike while the iron is HOT!I was over by a Marshall's and a Ross, and scored some really cute shoes!

I found these for T. I think they will look very cute with her new plaid skirt!!

I also found Ralph Lauren Madras plaid tennis shoes for both kids. Now I just hope they don't have another growth spurt before school starts!!

Smartie pants...

So now that J is learning to read, he is convinced he can read EVERYTHING! (sigh)

This is pretty cute. What is not cute anymore, although I am sure I will get over it quickly, every word he sees he sounds out the letters. The first two hundred times it was adorable. "D...da da da...D and and That spells DOG!!!"

But then he spells something wrong, like when I tried to tell him the sign said Albertson's not alligator.... Even after he spends a good TEN yes TEN minutes out front of the store refusing to go in until he has sounded it out. (And sounds it out wrong) Because clearly Albertson's is NOT alligator, and then he squeals that we have to get outta there cause Alligators love to eat little kids. Meanwhile my patience has run out, and I am forced to drag him in so I can buy a flipping gallon of milk. At this point a ten minute trip has turned into 30 minute trip and I am worn out. (BTW, T is being a perfect angel through all of this)

I hear a voice behind me "Honey, they are only little once, try to enjoy them! Look they are sooo sweet!" Says the elderly woman who clearly does not remember this phase. At this point both children are smiling sweetly at her as if she is going to produce lollipops. And they were dead on because she did!! Thank goodness she turned away quickly so I could snatch the lollipops out of their hands before they can get the wrappers off. Lets face it, these kids are not going to eat candy from a stranger no matter how sweet she seems... Thank goodness at check out, the girl gave them neon PAID FOR stickers to put on their shirts. Most appropriate, don't you think?

So bummed...

So, I was planning on meeting all the Dallas Blogging girls tonight....but no. Sadly this temporary cap will not stay put!! So they have kindly scheduled me to come in after hours because they are full. Aaaargh! Did anyone else have issues with having a tooth capped?

Some good news? My cheek is healed! Thank goodness! Whew! Until today I have been a complete mess...
