With a bag of granny smith apples in my fridge so sour that I can barely eat them with sugar and chicken breast thawing in my fridge I thought I’d experiment in the kitchen. I figured I’d make a meal we all love or we could have been eating peanut butter and jam sandwiches for supper instead. Read the rest of this entry →
While most started back to school early last week, Austin only started school on Friday. Her school is on a 6 day rotation and she’ll only be going on days 2, 4, and 6. While it means there won’t be a lot of structure in our day to day week, I’m sure we’ll figue something out for the rotationing weeks of 3 day weeks and two day weeks.
One thing that we do no matter the day of the week is hair. With two little girls we are forever brush their hair out of their eyes and faces in general. One has long fine hair, the othe thick shorter hair. Both curly.
I am terrified of lice. Are you scratching already? I am. I had it when I was in grade five and it was horrible to get rid of. I started with long hair and ended up with it cut to above my shoulders.
I hope to have Austin’s hair back or up somehow each school day. Kindergarteners are playing close together and I’d rather not give a louse an invitation into our home.
Here are some of the hair styles that my girls love having. Easy for shoulder lenght hair or longer.
Are youand your kindergartener ready for school? We are official ready here. School supplies have been bought and labeled. Lunch and recess items have been bought. We have the forms all filled out and ready to be handed in on the morning of registration. All that’s left is walking her to school and walking away.
I have tissues ready to go as well. For me. And for Brookland.
Did I mention school supplies labeled? Every little school supply had to be labeled. I’m talking each marker, each crayon had to have her first and last name on them. Ugh. Time consuming? Hard work? Not really.
Name Bubbles makes back to school labeling easy. Their School Value pack has everything you need for back to school.
Better late than never… I completely forgot that I had wanted to take part of Brave Love’s Blog-tember challenge. I have only missed the first day, and who knows, with September already showing to be a busy month it could be the only post I write for it, though I hope not. Today’s post is “What make me happy”.
I think this is fairly easy to figure out. My kids make me happy.
While there sure are days where I want to, and probably should, run screaming from the house and them (with Hubby home with them of course), I still love them and the happy moments are definitely more than the run away screaming moments.
I am happy that my oldest, Austin, is starting school in a few days. Not because I want her out of the house, but because I know it is going to make her so happy to make some friends, learn and have fun.
I am happy that Brookland no longer pees the bed nor needs to be woken up at night to go to the bathroom. Though I would love for her to stop having weekly accidents through the day.
I am happy that we have been getting somewhere with Gauge’s sleep habits. A good night’s sleep would make anyone happy. Though I am not afraid to admit, when I realize I haven’t gotten up with him for more than 4 hours I do run into his room to check on him.
A sleeping child is a very precious thing. They need sleep for to be healthy growing beings. They are, in my experience, so much happier with more sleep. Momma’s and Dadda’s are much happier when babies sleep as well. We haven’t had much sleep since Gauge was born, but in the last couple weeks things have been getting so much better. Our sleep solution turned out to be quite simple in the end.
I admit I didn’t fully read the No-Cry Sleep Solution book. I skimmed it and took some things away. In reality, things I already knew.
We thought about Gauge’s sleep. Where he sleeps and when. The rest was quite simple. Read the rest of this entry →
