yesterday, zibby got up before I had remotely enough sleep to function. so, we both went to the bathroom, and then I steered her back into bed, put the tv on in our bedroom, and snuggled back up with henry while she watched noggin.
at some point later in the morning, she shoves me.
“MOMMY! STOP SNORING SO I CAN HEAR MY SHOW!”
when I remembered this, much later in the day, I laughed out loud for a good while. at least henry could sleep thru it!Filed under daily life | Comment (1)
zibby was sick all this last week. she spent most of every day lying on the sofa being very polite and quiet and immobile. it was very strange and unusual and a more than a little worrisome. then I got it on friday and i understood her behavior. man. whatever it was wiped the floor with me, too. all day friday i felt like absolute hell. bub and I slept on the bed all day while zibby was on the couch. today we all felt much better, tho not 100 %. maybe 75%. except zibby still isnt eating much. she hasnt hardly eaten all week, and I actually had to *make* her nurse. meaning, I had to pretty much force myself on her, and then she would be like, oh, ok, and nurse for a few minutes before saying her tummy was full.today in the car she offered me some of her water, and I said no thanks, I had my own. she said, “it was nice of me to offer, though” we all laughed and buzz said, yes, it was nice of her to offer.Filed under daily life | Comment (1)

This week is going to be seriously bizzy.
My LLL group is hosting a HUGE fundraiser, presenting a seminar with Adele Faber, who I am just thrilled to get to meet and hear speak. We have been working so hard to get this going, and we are all so excited! If you live near Chicago, buy your tickets NOW!
Plus, I am traveling to Springfield on Wednesday to Lobby for the Professional Midwife Licensure Act.
And, our little Zibby turns 4 on Saturday and we have two parties this weekend for her. So, I doubt you’ll hear from me until next week.Ps, the cloak is a hit! Zibby has worn it and its super warm and cozy, with no itchy seams that “bite” her. whew.Filed under daily life | Comments Off
There simply are not enough hours in the day, especially if you want to get any sleeping done.
Today we went to a gym and Zibby ran around and did gymnastics stuff and changed outfits 3 times. I realized that although she enjoys gymnastics equipment, she had no frame of reference for what gymnasts actually do on them. So, I tivoed a gymnastics meet and showed it to her. She got realllllly excited and kept murmuring, I want to do that! I want to do what shes doing!
Then, today, on the balance beam, she had an added flair. And look what she did on the bar!
Afterwards, we went for hamburgers and then we had Music Together class. Then we stopped to pick up some freecycle stuff and came home to dinner. That may not sound like a full day, but it totally was. After dinner (which was a yummy crockpot chicken rice casserole) I did some research for my LLL volunteer job, and finished a small art project thingy (also happens to be for LLL). I also made plans to attend Lobby Day downstate.Filed under daily life | Comment (1)
Henry is teething. I can feel and see at least one of his lower middle teeth coming thru. He gnaws and slobbers on everything, too. Still, he is intensely adorable and we all adore him. Zibby and I spent some of our day nuzzling and kissing him, which he thinks is hilarious.
We went to our Music Together class this week. Zibby amazed the teacher by playing the sticks with her toes, something Miss Shannon said she had never seen a kid do in class before. Well done Zibby. Feet are apparently on the menu lately because she was also exploring her feet with the serving tongs at the restaurant we went to on Saturday night. Unfortunately, the tongs made it back into the bowl of fries….making some of our dinner companions queasy. Though, gracefully, not mentioned until after dinner. Henry has found his feet also. He likes to grab them when I potty him.
We’ve all had turns being sick the last couple weeks, but today we all seemed pretty good. Buzz had the car since he had his date with the dentist tonight. Zibby was kind of jealous, because Papa lost a tooth. Well, it was extracted, but that is a technicality. Some friends came over this afternoon and we hung out in our warm home, while it snowed and snowed and snowed.
We are also busy planning Zibby’s birthday fun, just two weeks away. I cannot believe she will be four years old. The time has really flown. Every day she does something new and amazing and funny and dear. The other day I was making hamburgers for dinner and she told me it was important for her to watch me so she could learn how to be a mommy just like me. On the one hand, I was like, Thats Unschooling, Baby! and the other hand, I was like, I Better Stop Swearing So Much.
I fell of the Gluten Free wagon a little bit. Its so much harder for me to give up than anything else (cept chocolate) but I will keep trying. I think it does make a difference. I wish I had more time to read about nutrition and probiotics and bacteria and fermentation and raw food and MCS and FM and so much more. My amazon wishlist is growing fast.
well, everyone else is asleep, so I have time to do bills and check email…
