Teething and Stuff

The Peanut is teething. I mean I think he's teething. He's had this white bump nearly since birth and only now, 6+ months later, does it seem to be bothering him. The Princess never seemed to have much of an issue teething. Red cheeks, slight temp, maybe irritable, but the Peanut seems to really be bothered. Eating a LOT more, then making himself sick. Drooling, sucking on his fingers, crying (and this kid NEVER cries). My poor little man. Maybe we can just curl up and cuddle all night. I am ok with that.

The tooth fairy

I blog I enjoy immensely is no more. This poor woman is so honest and forth coming. I felt a real connection with her and will miss reading her blog so much.

The Princess had a hard time going to sleep tonight. Usually it's easy. She asks to go to bed, by 7pm she is exhausted. Tonight hubby put her to bed and about 30 minutes later she came downstairs (this NEVER happens, once she's out, she's OUT). She stumbled on the bottom step and fell, which I am sure added to the exhaustion, led to the drama that unfolded.

She was sure the "monsters" were going to get into the room the same way the tooth fairy gets in. I promised her monsters weren't real and the doors were locked and she was safe. So she switched gears. Where does the tooth fairy live? What does she look like? How does she get the tooth from under the pillow without waking kids up? What does she do with the teeth? She was in a panic. (I should note that the Princess is terrified of characters. Santa Clause, Easter Bunny, costumed characters at the mall....makes our Disney trip in 2011 a little iffy.) She was beside herself and not listening to reason. So I mentioned we'd "google it" in the morning. My three-year old instantly brightens, says "the computer will tell us!" and goes to sleep. Problem solved, the internet saves the day!!!!

Baby Steps

I recently decided to start a blog. More for my own sanity then entertainment for others. We have a family website, we run the daycare site, we also have a site dedicated to Child care providers and parents. I just wanted my very own little piece of the internet; To vent, rage, gloat, brag, cry, whatever the feeling of the day, week, hour.

So this is me dipping my toe in to see how it goes...

I am also starting a new fitness regime. Counting my points in a pseudo weight watchers attempt, working out on the wii fit and starting the Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred. I am not a fan of the biggest loser. In fact, I have never watched it, but reviews say she is tough and if I need anything it's a kick in the butt to keep me motivated. I am done having babies, so why am I holding on to this baby weight? Down 7lbs, 9 more to go to my first goal, and 7 more after that to my ultimate goal: my 21 year old body. I know I can do it, I have done it once before. Just taking it one day at a time, baby steps.
