bad bevahior…it’s my fault

**Lets pretend I named this “Negative Behavior…it’s my fault” just cuz I think that’s better** I think it’s after a blog where I comment on how lovely and behaved my children are where they decide to act out.  It’s usually my fault. Like when my child goes back to neurosensory integration for the first time […]

Best. Compliment. Ever.

“Mommy, when I was just a little seed I made a wish.  I wished that I would have a mommy just like you.” – Silas   That’s what Silas said to me in the health food store yesterday.  If it hadn’t been immediately tainted by the red-headed teller that can’t tell Vitamin C from liquid […]

Feeling Feelings

I’ve cried a lot today. I woke up in a fog of SSRI withdrawal, I had slept in too long and it was time to feed the kids FAST and get out the door for swimming lessons.  I managed to do it, despite the fog and the rush, we got there only 3 minutes late.  […]

Tumble Time

Let me begin by saying how glad I am that I started consuming All Bran Buds again.  Remember back in the day when I wrote an ode to All Bran Buds?  Ya I’m feeling the All Bran Bud afterglow right now and it feels gooood. So we went to go tumble about at the gymnastics […]

How to Potty Train Your Toddler

It seems like one of the most frustrating parts of parenting a toddler is potty training them.  I hear many facebook status updates from my friends who are growling about it. Potty training is tough but can be quickly achieved through these five simple principles: I have no clue. don’t ask me. I’m completely void […]

Let the Sun Shine In

So how come today it’s only 11:20 am and I’ve accomplished more than I have all week?  Cuz it was sunny this morning.  Sun gives me spunk.  I love sunshine.  It’s my mojo. It’s crazy how simple it is that seeing rays of sunshine coming through my blinds makes my whole day different but it […]

Are They 13 Already?

I thought they wouldn’t eat me out of house and home until they were teenagers…not NOW! For example, a typical breakfast for Silas is 3 eggs, a banana, an apple, some crackers, a rice cake, sometimes another banana, a kiwi and then I say STOP SILAS because it’s almost lunch time.  Then Isaac downs over […]

New Books!!

So I got my first book that I ordered.  I went on a slight Amazon spree…who can say no to Amazon though?  You get books for so cheap!!  I ordered Raising Your Spirited Child, The Out Of Sync Child, The Out of Sync Child Has Fun, the workbook to go along with Spirited Child (I […]

Massive, Mega Explosions!

So here’s what happens when you go to Costco and your child notices you buy raisins and you come home and he demands them and then demands you feed him All Bran Buds and then demands a few prunes. Massive, mega explosions! You see, he used to be able to eat such things, prunes and […]

Wal Mart for an Hour = HELL

I went for a trip to Wal Mart yesterday with my brother.  I said “Oh for sure we can hang out there for an hour while your photos develop!”  CHA RIGHT.  We made it, but hardly.  Silas was a psycho.  The kid that lays on the floor and screams.  People were looking around for who […]

New Words and GARDEN PHOTOS!!

Ikey is saying new words almost daily!! Yesterday he said “squish” and “cheers”. This morning he said “fish”. So now he can say: Mama (which sounds like mumum), Dada (which he yelled out when Brent opened the door yesterday), row row row, up, this and that (depending if he wants this or that 🙂 ). […]

Asthma??

Ugh, I think Silas has asthma. BOOOOOOOOOOO. It’s happened 4 times now, coughing after running. Yesterday was the WORST. I think because of the weather. It rained after loads of sunny days which always does it to me. The rain brings down all the pollution. Plus it was muggy out. He starts coughing lots and […]

Singer Silas Sings Again!

Yesterday Silas and I had some fun with the webcam and I wanted to show off his talents.  Before I put the things on my blog, I’ll link to each video in case they don’t load for your computer. Bed of Roses – this one is long but worth it, he sings the whole song, […]

I’m So Bad at Titles.

Didja think I was dead??  I’m still here, later than normal but alive. This morning I rushed to Jennies to cut out a bag which took far too long.  My next bag is going to be magnificent folks.  A real doozie.  Watch out Louis Vitton!  And then we drove all the way home to just […]
