Goings On

Hey y'all!  Sorry for the lack of busy here.

Some highlights from the last few days:

Little G discovered how to empty the contents of my new lightweight vacuum and I don't even know how to do it.  While I was trying to figure it out, while the vacuum was turned upside down and in my face, Little G decided to turn the vac on and blew the rest of it's contents in my hair, eyes, and mouth.

I just had to pry two snowflake cookie cutters from Little G's wrists.

Many times a day, Little G will run back and forth from the front side of our house, through the kitchen, and back to the front side of the house, over and over again.  Griffin loves to watch this and will giggle every time she passes by.  Last night, I noticed that he was walking just as fast as he could back and forth across the living room.  I believe he's trying to act like his little sissy!

Big G was talking in her sleep last night and kept saying "cookies" over and over again.  It was pretty sweet!

Big G had 80s day today at school.  She asked me if I needed to google how people dressed back then.  Ha Ha.  I think I can remember.  As she stood before the dressing mirror this morning in her blue jean skirt, tights, legwarmers, pink converse, over sized sweatshirt, side ponytail with a scrunchy, she asked, "Are you sure this is how people dressed back then?"  Unfortunately, yes, it's how we dressed.

Little G told her OT this morning that she loved him, complete with his name!  "Torston, Ah bah du."  So sweet!

I had four hours to myself on Saturday, thanks to a friend who volunteered to babysit for me!  I finished my Christmas shopping and got a haircut!  Now if I could only get the "wisdom highlights" covered.

I have an amazing friend who is taking Big G to and from the bus stop for me so that I don't have to get the "Twinkies" loaded up so early in the morning.  My mornings are less stressful and I'm not as rushed.  She is a true blessing from above.

Griffin got his first shiner by slipping in the bathtub and hitting his eye on the soap holder.  I bought a bathmat that very day.

Friday night, as I tried to take a nap on the couch, Little G head butted me and broke my nose.  Yep, I heard it pop.

Just now, Little G found a pair of children's safety scissors of Big G's and as I was trying to get them out of her hands, she cut my finger!  I think they are much safer when they are put in a safe place.  <sigh>.

Oh well, I'm hoping to get some great news from the hubs today and praying that he can come home ASAP!  I fear there will be nothing left of me by the time he makes it home.  <wink>

Love and Hugs!

OH!  For those of you with children who have Ds, I ran into another mother in our community who has a son with Ds and asked her advice.  I am having a horrible time getting coats to fit my Griffin because of his short neck.  They just absolutely won't zip up and then the top of the coat is in his face.  She showed me her son's coat and I went right out and bought one.  It's a soft, thick coat, not the nylon, puffer kind.  You can fold the soft kind in around the neck so that it fits more like a "V" neck.  Working like a charm!


  1. Oh my, I've been praying for your sanity. I think I should add your physical self as well! I keep telling you to take care of yourself but I think I need to go to a higher power!


Tell us what'cha think!
