Today is the day where I am finally trying to get some blogging done, crafting done...etc. and all I can hear during naptime is MAMA...MAMA.........MAMA! This I am actually used to. Trying to get Lola to nap these days has proven quite tricky. So I let her talk/whine it out for a while and go in to check on her a few times, and then finally commit the mama no-no...I gave her a bottle of milk. (I know, I know all about bottle rot. The 4th child is the only one we have done this with. And we make sure to take it away after she falls asleep and we usually brush her teeth after.) Well, today I went through all the usual steps of getting her to sleep (check on her, check on her, give bottle, wait, take it away, wait) and finally, after a prolonged period of this whining I went in to check on her. By the way, my definition of whining- making any one syllable word into two. With Mo-om being the top contender.
When I walk in, she is standing up saying "I poop"! (I'll spare you the pictorial) Diaper is off and planted dirty side down onto her pillow and it looks as if this pint size Picasso has fingerpainted the crib, bedding, clothes....etc. So I take the soiled clothes off and run her to the tub. I start the bathwater and say "hold on" to the side of the tub while I get the wipes. I am gone only a few seconds and upon my return, I hear a soft little voice say "oh no" as I look down to see her riverdancing in a puddle of urine. I clean her up and the floor up and get her settled in to her bubble bath and against my better judgement utter the words "I'll be right back" as I dash down the hall to her room to grab the soiled items and throw them in the wash. Poke my head in the door to check on Lola again. She smiles and says "hi". I start the laundry then return for operation: clean up baby. As I'm going to pour the shampoo/bodywash into my hand nothing comes out but some water which someone has tried replacing the real deal with. "What happened to the shampoo?" I ask. This cute little munchkin face looks up at me with a great big smile and says as she points "Down there". Lovely.
We are anxiously anticipating Disney's newest masterpiece "Tangled". Or "Re-punzel" as Luci would say. Excited that this is one the whole family will want to see. Getting 8 and 6 year old boys wanting to see the same movie as a 3 year old girl......now that is an accomplishment! (Go Disney!)
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Ours involves finishing up birthday preparations for our oldest son who will be turning 8 on Sunday. My how time flies.
Such as this blog post. Having to deal with a dead computer, rehabilitating a spare and fixing blog issues, this blog is finally appearing back to normal on my monitor so I feel as if I can once again get my groove on.
Don't you just love their gorgeous couture pieces such as the Musette necklace above and the delicate pieces like the Love script necklace in silver? I could see either piece worn with jeans and a tank or dressed up. What would you wear it with?
“You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
And with flavors like white chocolate raspberry and my personal favorite....red velvet, it's a good thing there is some distance between us, otherwise I might end up being another "Biggest Loser" success story waiting to happen.
Here's a few of the shots that are makin' me happy today.
For now it's off to find a charger to charge a camera battery for tonights trip to the State Fair! Yay! Better make sure to find the camera while I'm at it!
p.s. lovin this pic of Luci with the "oh my" look on her face....perfectly describes me this week. ♥
Also linking up here today:
The best part was the price. Because it was a 1/2 off sale the dishes were 99 cents, the vases were 49 cents and the trim was $2.49! I also scored a cute yellow purse for $2.49, boxed puzzles for the boys .25 cents/each, movies for the kids .50 cents/ each, silk Ann Taylor head scarf for under $2, and a cool chair for $2.50. (Next time, I'll have to check for vintage linens.) How exciting! Who knew you could find such cool stuff at your local thrift store.
ps. Hope you all had an awesome 4th of July! There was supposed to be this fun, patriotic food related dessert picture on here yesterday... with a little note from me to you wishing you a wonderful holiday. Unfortunately, I never got around to making that dessert.....after all, it is the thought that counts. ♥
