Hey guys.

Long time no posting!!

So I want to know!

With the big 5th birthdays coming up in a bit over a month (wow has it been that long?)
How are your not so little ones doing now?
Have they started school/kindy etc.
any recent pics?
Do you have any new babies?
I'm curious!

Zarriya is 5 on the 5th of may. She goes to kindy and loves it. And she has new twin baby brothers that are 3 months old.

how tall are your kids? for some reason, size 4 things, especially dresses, seem awfully short on Germaine... and she's not even 4 yet! I don't think of her as exceptionally tall... but I thought I'd ask, for comparison. she's 39 inches (3'3").

anyone still here? [16 Jul 2007|05:45pm]

anyone have a kid NOT potty trained yet? I'm at my wit's end here, bribing with suckers isn't working. I can't do anything hardcore that requires a lot of attention because I have other kids, including a 4-month-old.

My daughter (2 1/2, 3 in May) has a small obsession with pennies. When I need some time to do something (clean the kitchen, shower etc.) I'll grab a handful of pennies and 'hide' them around the apartment. She'll spend HOURS (if I let her) finding all the pennies and putting them in her penny bank. Then, she'll hide them for me to find.

Excellent idea of a rainy day, or when you just need a small break ! Just thought I'd share.

potty training?? [30 Jan 2007|09:49pm]

[ mood | embarrassed ]

How is this going for everyone? I'm single, work and go to school full time and have daycare and a couple different babysitters so its almost impossible to be consistent. What's working best for you ladies?? I just can't seem to get this off the ground and feel like a failure as a mother....

Fun foods [30 Aug 2006|06:15pm]

The place I just started working for gained The National Wildlife Federation as a client recently so I was checking their website to see if they had any magazines or anything else Damien might like. I came across these recipes when looking at their toddler magazine, Wild Animal Baby. I thought they were cute and some of you might be interested in making them for or with your kiddos. :)

Guess I just need someone who can relate [09 Aug 2006|10:11am]

Has any one elses baby been diagnosed as "special needs"  We just found out Kaylan is hearing impaired.  She has 75% hearing loss in her right ear, and 50% in her left.  She also has negative pressure behind her right ear.  This would make sense, because my husband went deaf in one ear as a young child, but it was fixed - except for the fact that his was caused by chronic ear infections, and my daughter has never had one.  We've started teaching sign language and she will be starting twice a week speech therapy and twice a week group therapy, and is also being enrolled in 1/2 day Montessori Preschool when we get to Jacksonville.   I hate that its like this, but its relieving to know WHY she is speech delayed.

by chance... [03 Aug 2006|06:04pm]

anyone still nursing? a little bit? we're down to just bed time and then if she wakes up in the night, though sometimes she's been asking for water when she wakes up, so then it's just bed time. I doubt she'll give THAT up any time soon. she still asks during the day, but I tell her not until bed time. I'd probably be more generous if it were just her, but with her little brother, too.. I can only handle so much.

Yep... Guess who learned how to climb out of his crib. That's right my little Vinnie. :) I was hoping that wouldnt happen till 3 but eh when he's out he's out. time for a toddler bed.

I wasn't planning on taking him out of the crib till he could get out... guess he figured out my plan lol

Our First Ambulance Ride! [10 Jun 2006|08:35pm]

So.. yeah.. I'm officially Mother of the year.. apparently I shouldn't get all upset about this.. but of course I am.. Theres nothing I could have done to stop it.. but Kay got to take her FIRST AMBULANCE ride today! Yay!!!!  We were watching "The Producers" and she went into the room to get a pillow.. next all i hear is screaming.. ran in there thinking she just was pissed off.. and there is blood.. everywhere.. coming from her mouth.. I pick her up, put her in the bath tub, tim comes in there and i go to call 911... We can't figure out whats bleeding.. if she's dying.. what she cut it on.. just theres blood..

So i call 911.. and what happens

I"M PUT ON HOLD!  WTF?!?!?!?!  That was the longest 30 seconds of my life...

So they sed the Plaza Volunteer Squad.. the same place i just applied to volunteer.. nifty...
They tell us to bring kay to the emergency room, and even offer a ride.. I'd have loved to ride with her.. except for the fact im.. oh.. covered in blood.. And Tim doesn't know where the hospital is.. luckily my clinical site was right next door.. So tim goes w/ her and I bring clothes for her and put on some clean ones for myself.. Luckily no stiches, just some derma bond.. but she wasn't a happy camper gettin gstrapped down to clean it... She was playing on the slide while we waited though.. she's such a trooper... she's soaking in the tub right now.. She's on a Liquid diet.. which has proven to be.. interesting..  

She also apparently has an ear infection, and conjunctitis.. And OH NOEZ bug bites!!  The doc seemed more concerned with the bug bites than anything else.. I was like.. you've got to be kidding me...   but anyways.. Heres the pics.. she has that "Angelina Jolie" look going on..

And no shadiroxan I dont beat her..

[ mood | hungry ]

ciara has just officially gone pee pee in the potty for the first time.
she was standing in her bedroom when i came in with her sun screen (we're going to play outside today) and she says "pooh pooh" and runs to the POTTY !!!  it was too late for the pooh pooh, but she sat down anyways, made a funny face and stood up to look and low and behold ... PEE PEE !!!  she's so proud, she's running around clapping and saying "pee pee pooh pooh potty potty !"

my little girl is growing up !

so, should i start a reward system ?  does anyone keep a chart at all, and if you do, does your child really understand it, or is it more for you ? *giggle*  ciara has just turned 2, so im not sure she'd fully understand anything but cheering and cookies.  and those of you who do use a reward system, does it really do anything ... as opposed to those who don't use a reward system.  im torn between thinking its bribery and incentive to learn.
