Tupperware Party

please look around my online Tupperware Party, ends July 1

NOTE: I put a direct link on my right sidebar or click pic above.....

See the one that says MY TUPPERWARE PARTY

Good One

Ran across this post while surfing around today. That's a good one.

I have actually been up a while, and today, believe it or not, I have already had a bath and washed my hair and shaved my legs. And I am a mother of three with really really long hair. What is this world coming to? LOL It is not even my birthday :)

Working on a secret crochet project for Little One. Hopefully I will have it done by Thursday afternoon.

so anyway, I know you are all hanging on the edge of your seats waiting to hear about our new pets. It's not that exciting really. My husband won two goldfish at the county fair. Who knew something like that would make two little girls sooo happy? So there names are Pinkie Pie Fish (that one belongs to the 4 yr old) and the other one is Lava Girl (a more sophisticated name for a 6 yr old). Little One has been begging for fish for a couple of years now. She is soooo happy. We do have several Pinkie Pie Ponies around here so you will have to keep that straight yourself :).

Since she is not soo little anymore, I think I might change her nickname, or is it knick kname, like knick-knack or knock knock....sorry to digress. Anyway, I will be trying out Pinkie Pie for her. Maybe I should just go ahead and use LavaGirl for the other one too.

I know you didn't have much else to do today besides reading my ramblings, ha.
other news, FencerBoy has 5 teeth and is a climber. He eats sticks and rocks. He prefers gravel and oak.

have a good one

Some Day

some day I may regret all the time I sit down and rest while my babies sleep on my lap, but not today

my third child is just over a year old and it seems like the seasons of my life have flown by

who knows if we are done having children, maybe/maybe not

but if we are, then this may be the last baby I nurse

and though he may be like the others and nurse til he is over 2 years old, it still seems like a short time

it still seems like it is almost over

today in some ways it seems to have been a waste of a day

I did get the dishwasher loaded twice, and washed and dried a couple of loads of clothes

I did hang some baby blankets, sheets, and diapers up on the line to dry

I did make some blueberry and banana muffins for breakfast (so the bananas wouldn't get wasted)

I did sweep the floor and bag up the garbage and take it out

I did feed the cats, the fish (another story), and water the tomato plants

I did finally mend/sew the velcro ties back on the tent/curtains for the bottom bunk of the girls' bed (Little One was thrilled, Dancer Girl hid in there making complex plans and drawing for her new club for her friends....Barbies first, dress up next, play school.....)

But it feels so wasteful at times to sit and do "nothing" while you are nursing your babies.

Usually I have something in my hands at the same time...a book to read to the girls or to myself, some yarn and a crochet hook, a crossword puzzle book, a remote control

Not today
Today, when it was time for baby to nap, I just sat and nursed him, and mostly stared off into space (or surfed around aimlessly online...i did do the daily crossword and delete all my spam, ha)

Some day people may tell me I should have done something different with my time
Maybe I should have
It is possible I should not have let the other children watch so much TV today
I do know, however, that I cannot live continually putting pressure on myself to hurry and get this one thing done in order to get the next thing done

looking back, i guess i really did get some things done today

what is it that tells us that we are nothing if we do not accomplish everything?
what is it that tells us that we can keep and manage a hectic crazy schedule like we did when we were in high school?

the things we do for today are good ones

it is like runny/crusty noses
it doesn't matter how many times you wipe and clean it, it still looks like you never did it all

it doesn't change the fact that you have to wipe it again
but just because it gets crusty again doesn't mean you didn't do a good job gently cleaning it before

some people can manage to make it out in public places with all their crusty places hidden and just wiped

that's ok
some day babies will grow up and wipe their own noses

Happy Birthday, Baby Boy!

Wow. Hard to believe my son is one year old today. No big parties planned, but mom and dad are coming by after lunch. We will watch the little guy schmear(don't know if that is the proper yiddish spelling) his cupcake and icing in his hair, and we will think it is very funny. Of course, he will too.

There is so much to say. It has been a busy year. One finished first grade, and one is four. They are all growing so fast. We will truly miss my husband's dad, who passed away in February. Every milestone that passes is bittersweet.

Baby Boy is now a toddler. He really toddles and wobbles everywhere he wants to go. He still crawls when he wants to get somewhere fast. He likes to sing and dance. So cute. He wants to eat what everyone else has. Always has. Like the others, the baby food I bought several months ago still sits on the pantry shelf. I should have learned by now....

I want to go get him a balloon. Can't wait to see his face. He is sleeping on my lap right now, dreaming happy baby dreams. Even in his sleep he grins that big open mouth smile. I love you, baby boy!
