The Kids' Log: September 9-15, 2012

Sunday, September 16, 2012

I survived a whole week without a Internet connection at home! That's partially true. I broke down and went to the Sprint Store and had the hotspot add-on enabled on my Galaxy phone, but the connection is so slow it has given me post-traumatic stress flashbacks to the days of dial-up. Can you say cancel this service, please? Another survival tool I used was to hit up the coffee shops for free wifi. I drank way too many overpriced chai tea lattes this week. I am going to hug the cable guy when he comes to install our Internet service on Tuesday. I did manage to squeeze out a couple of posts this week. Did you notice the HUGE eShakti dress review and giveaway?

We are stilled buried under boxes and it feels like we'll never get unpacked. Part of the problem is trying to figure out where to put everything when you are working with much less space. I won a $50 gift certificate to HearthSong and ordered a Zoku ice pop maker which I now regret because it's one more thing to find a spot for. I know I'll change my mind when I'm enjoying a yummy Popiscle next summer.

I miss reading all your blogs! I pinky swear that I am going to read all your back posts next week and leave comments!

Toddler Log: 3 Years and 4 Weeks Old
Marlie still loves school. It is the highlight of her week. Now if I could just get a copy of whatever magic spell they cast on her to use at home then we'd be doing great. We attended a parent meeting this week and got to learn more about the school, its staff, and its approach to child development. It's all so zen.

I have been working on using some of their strategies like channeling her high energy into tasks that keep her focused and make her feel like a big kid. So we bought her a plant, a cute little succulent she named Rapunzel. She waters it and talks to it. It's the perfect combination of teaching tool and diversionary tactic.

Baby Log: 22 Weeks Old
The teething has kicked into high gear and Desmond has turned into a restless little bundle of crankiness. He won't nap/sleep unless he is strapped to me in his carrier or latched on my boob. I see four little nubs under his gums and I just want them to push through already. I want my sweet baby back!

"I survived a whole week without a Internet connection at home!" I don't think I would survive. LOL

You're unpacking and I'm packing. LOL I'm just not so sure I'm going to rush doing the unpacking. I will do a few boxes at a time and make myself get rid of 1/2 the stuff in front of me. With Alyssa moving, it will just be me and I have too much stuff. If I were a turtle, the shell would be so big I wouldn't be able to walk! Obviously, that just isn't a good way to live.

BTW If you hug the cable guy, he is going to think you are a little wacky. LOL

I go nuts without my internet LOL! Glad to hear Marlie's doing well at school and the succulent idea is so clever. Oh! Congrats on the Hearth Song win - I LOVE their stuff. And I feel you on the teething bit - Nia cut hers super early too and no one wanted to believe me. Babies grow up too too fast!

Glad you survived w/o internet! I'm in total awe! Someone should make a blog about how to survive w/o the internet! :-) That is so awesome that you were able to find the right preschool for Marlie! What a difference from the other school! I hate to tell you this, but Desmond has got some serious bedroom eyes. Girls are going to be falling for them left and right when he gets older! Sorry he's teething though! It's tough on Mama and baby!

Internet is always the first thing hooked up in a move! I think it was hooked up before the actual move in date, just in case. LMAO.

Awww poor cranky baby boy. It is so sad when they hurt.

I'm glad to hear Marlie is doing well at school. :)
