"Mommy!!!! My penis hurts!!"

So, Jayden was jumping around in the family room tonight with Uncle Jeff. Next thing I know, he comes running in with tears in his eyes and hand over his crotch. It would be wonderful if he was coming to tell me that he tried to make it to the potty, but had an accident. However, that was not the case. It had nothing to do with the potty. Apparently he slipped while jumping.....

I had an otherwise very pleasant day. I went to a Luncheon to welcome the newest members of Las Madres. They always put together a very nice day--good food, lots of raffle prizes (I didn't win anything), great entertainment. The DJ they hired was none other than my little Max! I was surprised and very pleased that they hired him. I gave a recommendation for him over the chat group to someone who apparently really liked him and passed his name around. He is making a killing on Las Madres events! GO MAX!

House news: Nothing new. We need a loan. We don't have a loan. We are waiting to hear from someone about a loan. No progress made. End.

The week just got even busier!

As if we could possibly cram any more activity into the week....

We took the kids to Happy Hollow on Wednesday. Still a fun place for kids. They plan to revamp the whole park next year. I hope they don't revamp their prices too! But, we had a good time there.

Yesterday, we took the kids to The Jungle. We had a lot of fun there, too! Wes (Dave's bro) had the best time racking up a ton of tickets from the kiddie games. He let the kids go "shopping" at the end of the day. Jayden got some cool fire rescue cars and Eliana got a little stuffed piggy that snorts. We left there in time for Eliana to fall asleep in the car and get a nice nap in before Dave and I left for dinner at the Melting Pot. Dinner took 4 HOURS!! I have never had such a long meal! Apparently my body could not handle the stress of it as I came home with a nasty migraine. :(

Today we ended up doing a thousand errands with Michelle that didn't get done during the week for all the fun we were having. Then ran off to the photographer's studio for pictures. I get to see the proofs next week, but the kids looked great (despite a rash on Jayden's arms). I am hoping the rest of us looked decent too. We'll have to wait and see.

I am now off to get ready for Shabbat Services which start early tonight because of the potluck dinner we are having after. Mom and I are supposed to host the refreshements after's some serious work. That's all I have time for! Busy busy busy! :)

Checking in

Just checking in...not much going on, but wanted to keep my readers happy with an update. Ok...I'm lying. I just wanted to know if there were readers out there missing me! :)

Here's the week in summary: Dave's sister arrived in town on Sunday; his brother and wife in town Monday; Sister's boyfriend will arrive today. Big "family" dinner tomorrow night at the Melting Pot. Should be yummy! I'm looking forward to it! Family and friends party at Aunt Judy's gig on Friday night in the bar. :( Not looking forward to it. Love Aunt Judy, love to hear her sing....but, I'm old. The music is too loud and I don't like hanging out in a bar. Gonna be a busy week!

Lullaby. Sleep all la LA la la la la....

So, it finally happened!! YAY!! My kids both sleep through the night...the WHOLE night and here's the biggie....IN THEIR OWN BEDS!!!!!! YAAAAAAAY!!!

I have been hesitant in declaring it done, but Ellie has done it for a week now! YAY for us! Perhaps we will have caught up on sleep in a month's time and be ready for some real adventure! :) Plus, I am weaning (finally) and I can't wait to be done with that! I think we might need another week or so before I can say weaning is complete. On the bright side, it didn't take me nearly as long to wean Eliana as it took to wean Jayden! YAY, again! :)

Be on the look-out for the new Discovery Toys catalogs arriving in the mail! I absolutely LOVE what's on pages, 3, 5, and 23! ;)

Now that the flood has past....

I am back online! My computer suffered minor damage in the flood this week. What's that? Oh, yes...the flood. Well, Jayden had a cup of water at my desk and he spilled it; refilled it; spilled it again; found a spray bottle with more water and decided to use it to "clean" and thus...the flood. My desk was floating; the floor was squishy; Dave's desk was wet; and the kitchen floor was so deep with water that there were fish and a diving board for swimming! Ok..I might be exaggerating a tiny bit, but not a whole lot! All in all, the only equipment we had to replace was the keyboards for both my computer and Dave's. AND, it helped me clean up my it wasn't all bad..............................

Ok..yes it was! I nearly lost all control of my temper. But, I called Dave; took deep breaths; cleaned with deliberate moves; and totally calmed down before I addressed my bewildered tot with what he did and why it was wrong and what his consequences were for doing it. YAY ME! :)

Of course, it was all my fault in the first place. I gave him the cup to drink from. I left the spray bottle in sight and reach. AND, I left him alone long enough to cause a problem while I was putting Eliana down for a nap which took FOREVER because I am working on weaning her. I think we should be done with it by next week! Again, YAY ME! :)
