Good morning ladies! I'm so glad it's Friday but it's going to be a busy weekend for me. Going to meet my new niece tomorrow, then hustling back Sunday to go to a big consignment sale for fall/winter clothes, then Open House at LO's new "school". It actually is a school - they just have separate buildings for the little guys. They take 6 weeks all the way to 12th grade. Aaaaaand I start my own classes on Monday! I keep forgetting that I've now got this obligation every Monday and Wednesday night. Plus an online course. It'll be hectic sometimes, I'm sure, but I'm excited.
Headed north today to my Inlaws lake house. Leo has been on a steady toddler diet of bananas and corn the last week, to add to his cheddar bunnies. Toddlers and eating, man. I cannot keep up with what he likes one day and hated the next!
Scored a Melissa and Doug pizza set and some Sesame Street puppets at a garage sale today! I was pretty excited about that. Dh's parents and aunt and uncle are coming to visit tonight. I should probably clean while lo is napping.

I'm a little on the tired side. I woke up when DH got home at 2 am and we stayed up talking for an hr. And then got up to eat a snack. Plus Leo keeps randomly crying out in his sleep. If it's nightmares he's having the same ones each night. Poor kid.
He has overtime today and tomorrow which is rough doing 2nd shift back to 1st. But he's happy to earn more money. We have no real plans. My oldest sister invited us over to brunch on Sunday so that should be fun, getting the whole family together.
I'm just super happy it's Friday! Hope you're all having a good start to the weekend!
littlelion hope you have a restful weekend! ourcrazynavylife 3:45?? Oh hell no. Hope you both got a really long nap. YH better be on toddler duty tonight. sgio7485 adorable.
Got the kitchen and all 3 bathrooms cleaned while lo napped. Feeling like a boss. I was talking to my friend who's due with her 1st in January and she said she's interested in doing cloth diapers. Not gonna lie, it made me pretty excited. There's a couple of us that are throwing her a baby shower and I'm getting excited to help plan.

I hate it when people assume that because you are not currently pregnant that you don't want to be. Someone asked if LO was our only kid last night and so we said "yes, as far as we know" and they went on about "oh, so not anymore kids right now?" Like acting like we couldn't handle another one. I want to throat punch them.

My 5 year old niece was hanging with us today. She is such a big help! I also went to school to help set up some rooms of teachers that pretty much resigned last minute and the principal was hoping people could set up the rooms so that the new teachers coming in don't have to worry about it. Now we are going to my brother-in-law and sister-in-law's for dinner tonight. Hope B is good!
Long day over here, too. Just took LO to speech. I forgot how stressful it can be- especially at her age. She does remarkably well but it is a LOT of redirection. Didn't help that she hasn't slept for crap the last two nights and seems to have every other tooth left coming in at once. Then the goddamn dog hit her in the eye with his tail and she could no longer hold it together- like I watched her come apart at the seams, poor thing. I just calmed her down after a twenty minute crying jag. Toddlers and dogs are just too damn much for me sometimes!

To the lady staring at LO at the restaurant as he shoves salsa and guac and queso into his mouth and all over himself with his hands - look bitch, he knocked one of his front teeth back into his gums and knocked the other one completely out. This is the best he can do right now. He can't have any fucking chips. He can't have a fucking spoon. He can just slobber crap all over himself. It's not pretty, but he's enjoying himself. Go fuck yourself.
BabyStandish hugs. I wish people would just learn to mind their own damn business when it comes to fertility and family size. reginaphalange3 that's really nice of you to help set up classrooms for new teachers! kcrus ugh, hope you get a chance to relax tonight. laceysbryan hope you gave her the stink eye right back. Those boots are stupidly cute, btw. Can. Not. Handle. It.
Had a decent visit with dh's family. It took lo awhile to warm up and he really didn't want to hang out with dh's aunt and uncle, but he only met them once last year. They kept trying to get his attention for pictures and I could tell he was annoyed. They both desperately wanted him to be all huggy and snuggly, but I'm not going to force my kid to touch someone he doesn't want to. We'd ask him if he wanted to give aunt or uncle a hug and if he said no, I just let him do his own thing. I'm glad dh backed me up on it, and his aunt and uncle finally backed off and just let lo play.
ashlantic this is how leo gets when new people are around and trying to interact with him. This was at my dads yesterday when my brother showed up. It just takes him a while to warm up. But his serious face cracks me up
