Ouch!

Had a tooth infection last week and have never felt pain like that before. I truly believe childbirth was easier. Anyways infection is gone now and today they pulled the nasty villian from my mouth. Hopefully this is the last for a while. Getting old is wonderful isn't it?
Ahhh the happy couple. They should be back home in Ottawa by now heading back to work. Boooo! Miss you already guys. The day was fabulous.

Pics...I hope they happen

Our camera died from battery failure last night. Yes I know we have said something about getting new batteries before, but we just never got around to it.
Ahh it was a blessed event last night. I was frozen, but it was all good.
The kids are wild this morning and fighting as usual. What a great way to wake up.
I lost all my jewels halfway through the night-so if you went home and little sparkly jewel things were stuck to you, I am sorry. They were between my cleavage and just didn't hold up. Oh well.
What a fun night. I have not had fun like that (without ...you know) in a long time.
It was also great to catch up with old friends again too.


*Alison sorry about missing your calls. I think I was getting waxed when you called. I will try to call you back this week.

Beautiful

"K" was so beautiful this morning as she spoke her vows to her beloved. I am off this evening to party it up at the reception. Woo hoo! Everyone sure cleans up good, it's amazing how good those boys look. Mmmm!
My mother in law almost flashed the world her goods before we went to the church, but I caught her just in time to tell her that her PANTS WERE TOTALLY SEE THROUGH!!!! That would have been a funny one, but I am too nice to not tell her.
Anyways, off to have some fun.

Okay...so I am at the library and the kids are running wild. I am sure the people here can't wait until we go home.

Last night Emma was getting ready for bed, and by that I mean she was running around naked grabbing her nipples. I didn't want to make a big deal about it, so I just casually asked her why she was touching herself there. Her answer: "I am measuring."


Well alright then.

I will have to try that...wonder what my measurements are.

Frustration

I have been trying to post for hours now. This sucks. Oh well. Sorry. Can't stay on long because I keep getting kicked off. We need to do something else because we have yet to make a trip to the library and I am not paying $50 a month for this crap service.

Checking in

Glad I am missed. I have so much to say and not enough time to say it in. I nearly died today when I got home after running around all day to find that my husband had made supper, washed both bathrooms, tidied the bedroom, put my jammies on my pillow etc etc etc. I am in heaven. I keep thinking I am in another world. I like it, and don't want it to end. This is heaven.
Had a OB doctor's visit today. Yum. Lovely. She clipped the wires on my IUD and said everything was good to go. Uh...I just went to the bathroom and found a wire. Gross. Thought you's enjoy that.
Anyways.....I miss all you folks and am trying to catch up on blogs, but really I am enjoying the break.

Look a new post!

Wow. I know. I am online. Let's just hope it holds long enough for me to get this published. Our internet keeps timing out on us which is so frustrating.
Sorry to keep you all hanging.
Andrea yes I do have some poo problems, but it has nothing to do with me being on here or not. But thanks for asking ;)
Steve and I are so agrivated by the whole internet thing that we may just get rid of it all together. BUT I will blog from the library, so don't worry you won't lose me totally.
Frankly I can't wait to get this beast out of my house.
We are actually spending more time together, it's really great. I have come to hate the computer. I do miss the contact though and feel a bit isolated, but I will give that up to be more of a family unit.

School days

Why is it that I still shake in my boots when I see the principal? Yesterday I went with both kids to the school by our house to register Emma for kindergarten. The school smells like a school. Remember? That...smell?
The principal was sternly talking to some rowdy boys in the office when we were there. Gosh I don't ever want to come in for my kid's disturbances. He was on a real power trip.
I filled out a bajillion papers and proceeded to leave with both kids when Oliver said "Mom, you didn't put my name down."
How did he know?
I told him his turn was next time.
On the way home Emma asked if I could drop her and Oliver off and if I could wake up Steve so he could watch them. Then she said to me that I should go straight to the store and buy her a lunch bag.
Where does she come up with this stuff?
She doesn't realize how far away September 5 is.
For me it comes too quickly.

I don't care if it's true....lie to me

Tell me I have nice perky boobs. Sometimes Steve is just a little too honest.

Phew

Fun times. Check out Steve's blog for what I did today. We had a scheduled doctor's visit and it turned sour when we had to go for x-rays. They routinely asked how his poops were and I told them he was having some troubles and that he was producing stuff the size of my foot. They didn't like that. Especially with his history of not eating. So off we went to take a picture of his belly. Yup lots of poop in there. So we have some yummy medicine for him and everything will be right as rain soon. Thank heavens I do not have to meddle with enimas! They threatened it, but I promised I would work and work and work with him. Sheesh, like I don't do enough already.
Emma was there with us too during the visit and she was playing at "Emily's Garden"-a service provided by the hospital- while we saw the doctors. In the midst of talking to them, the lady from Emily's Garden came and dropped Emma (full of boundless energy) back to me. We were not even done our appointment yet! Rude. Plus we still had to go get x-rays and come back for the results. Arg! Oh some women can be such bitches.
I lived through it. We managed to get through the rest of the appointment, the kids had some snacks (thanks to my back pack 'o plenty) and we made it to dance class just in time.
We have all skipped naps today.
Oliver was quite the....ham today during Em's class.
Another mother noted how small he was and yet he spoke so well. She asked how old he was. I told her that he is just over 2.
Her little boy was 17months and close to the same size. The lady thought she was comforting me when she said "Oh that's okay my daughter was small too, she was just under the 25th percentile for most of her check ups"
I smiled.
Did I really want to go into it?
No. But I did anyways.
I said "Yes, well he is not on the chart."
It took her a minute or two to 'get it'.
"Oh"
Then came the questions.
I explained and explained some more.
I told her that Oliver was diagnosed "Failure To Thrive".
She challenged me. "Was he actually diagnosed that?"
YES!!!
Frig. People are so stupid.
Then I felt the need to explain that he has gastric reflux and barfed most of the first part of his life. THEN...She asked me if I breastfed!!!!!
Well, I did both. So there.
I know this is getting long and boring. I will end with a happy note that I got today from our dietician.
She told me I am doing an unbelievable job. Oliver is now up to 23 pounds. That is two whole pounds up from last time we were there two months ago. She told me to keep doing whatever I was doing, because it was great.

Having a good day...

My husband is paying lots of attention to me and I love it.

Feeling...what is the word...thrilled/alive/exhilarated.
Happy Birthday Alison!!!

Busy

Yes I am still unpacking things. Give me a break okay. We have moved HOW MANY times now in the last two years? Too many times. Let me just say that only the basement was left unpacked until now and it was just stuff that..well you know is a pain to deal with.
Shelves to be hung, pictures to put up, books etc. I need shelves before I can really deal with all this stuff. Well I still don't have shelves and being only five feet tall I suck at hanging anything.
So I have been throwing things out and re-organizing for now in our "gym" as Emma calls it.
Almost everything is out of boxes now...except a few odds and ends that just need containment.
We can now see the floor! I should have taken before and after shots, but it was BAD down there, so I did not.
I found a bunch of the kid's summer stuff....sigh. Actually looking forward to summer this year. Oliver will be able to wear all his old shorts due to the fact that he is out of diapers now. Nice.
It also looks like Emma will too, although she was not in diapers last year so why do hers still fit? Weird how that works.
So glad that we made this move. This house is far better than our last. Energy wise we are saving like crazy! This one is better insulated and carpeted (the windows lose heat though which we need to get fixed) but overall we are saving loads this year compared to last. Very good.
Hope you are all having a good weekend!

While we were out...

Yesterday Oliver went to the toilet three times at the emergency place while waiting to be checked on by the doctors. (He swallowed a sequin for those of you who don't read my husband's blog.)
Anyways we were gone from 12pm to 5:30pm and by the time we got home his pants were still DRY! This is pretty good stuff. We usually only go for short trips and don't push him that far, but this was a good test and he proved he could do it.

My latest distraction-The Booby Bib


I made this yesterday morning before all the excitement happened with Oliver. The book is in the picture so you can see how big the bib actually is. (In case you can't figure it out, it's for nursing mothers)
My friend Jenn is having a baby and I thought this would be a fun gift to give her. Plus it's called a Booby Bib-how much better can it get than that? Posted by Picasa

It really works!

Got my first google cheque! Could not believe my eyes. In fact, I almost threw it out because I thought it was junk mail. Glad I opened it first. Thanks for all of your support, and please please keep up the good work;) if you know what I mean.

You can see how happy he is...

Oliver got this shirt in the mail today and it fits pretty well. The package said that it came from Spiderman. Funny, I didn't know that Spiderman lives in Ottawa ;)
Thanks guys! He loves it!!!!!!!!! Now the challenge will be getting him out of it.
Oh ya, what you can't really see very well in the picture is that his feet are off the ground because he won't stop jumping. Such a happy happy little guy. Thank you. Posted by Picasa
