Which is completely appropriate since one of my pet names for Bill is Einstein. Anyway, back to my story. Today I was going through my old teaching stuff getting our “classroom” ready. I came across my wood 50 states puzzle. I set this aside thinking that the kids would not be ready for it. While [...]
Madeline has really been maturing lately. She is getting taller and more adept at playing with Annie and Kimberly. This past week she started imitating a dog. She is the most adorable dog you have seen. Such a sweet little bark and the cutest little face. I do not remember the other girls role playing [...]
Kimberly – Daddy kiss my bunskis Kimberly had slipped and hurt her bottom. She needed it kissed to make it all better.
Annie is currently 1002 days old! Kimmie is 1014 days old! No wonder we had cupcakes last night!! They insisted they needed candles too. Well, now I know why!
A while back when Bill and I decided to stay here at this house and not move I got such a sense that this was where we were to be. Our children were conceived in the idea when we purchased this home. Now they are here with us. It is an amazing life. Today when [...]
Bill and I have been to Sea World many times in the past. We have always enjoyed the animals and interesting interactions. It was so neat to go this time and see it as children see it. When we first arrived we went to pet the dolphins. I knew this would get them hooked and [...]
780 miles later, we’re back from our vacation! Everyone had a great time though I think I can safely say that we’re glad it’s over. The Girls developed some bad habits en vacance; more on that in a bit. The drive over went fairly well. I can’t think of any screaming jags or difficult times. [...]
The Brown family will be gone for the weekend. We are going to Sea World. I am super excited to show the girls these animals close up! We will update you all when we return.
Me: I would like 2 Diet Cokes and one Coke Kimmie to Annie: Oh 2 Diet cokes, one for Kimmie and one for Annie. Uhh okay! 2 Diet Cokes were for Mommy and Aunt Teresa, regular Coke was for Grammy! See I told you their soda drinking was getting out of hand!!!
Since Annie’s surgery we were allowing her to drink anything that she would. This included soda. Since Kimberly could not understand us treating Annie differently she and Mimi partook in the soda drinking as well. Well, now comes the time that we have to wean the little ladies from soda and sugary drinks. I think [...]
As many of you may or may not know, I began a weight loss journey on January 1st, 2006. I have lost 16 pounds total. I was only modifying my diet to begin with. I am feeling so much better in regards to my blood sugar. I think that those pounds have helped in that [...]
Annie lost two pounds during her recovery of her surgery. I know this does not seem like much but when your total body weight used to be 27.5 pounds it is a lot. She is now down to a measley 25 pounds. I know that she will put it back on soon. She just seems [...]
It is my girl Annie!!! She is finally getting back to being her normal old self. I am so excited to see her again.
Annie is doing better. She is still having bad times where she is overcome with the pain of her surgery, but I think we are improving. She still needs tylenol from time to time but she is up and playing more often than she has been.
The time has come to begin Kimberly and Annie\’s formal education. They are super smart little things and they need guidance on the ways to learn more. I am looking to purchase the Open Court phonics wall cards so that they can learn to associate sounds with letters. They already know and can identify many [...]
“Mommy your eyes are red, white and black” – Annie Yes, I guess red would be first when you were awoken at 5 by a child still recovering from her surgery. LOL
Thursday, August 24th at 7 am. Prayers, hugs, and visitors welcome. Very, very real right now. Cannot comment on it. Will have to let things come to a slowdown in my mind to be able to make sense of them.
Today I had the meeting with my Dr. It is official. I will be having a total abdominal hysterectomy. I will loose one, both, or none of my ovaries. She thinks that old lefty may not make it. I am waiting for insurance approval to schedule. I will keep you all posted as I progress [...]
They have been bonding. Generally Annie and Kimberly do not include Mimi in their games. They have been known to avoid her all together. The good news is that while Annie has been out of commission Kimberly had to turn to her littlest sis for a playmate. In these past few days Madeline has been [...]
She is doing okay. She continues to struggle with drinking enough and eating. I just pray that she is getting enough fluids. I cannot imagine her scabs falling off and her bleeding later. I am still struggling with having enough patience. I know that this is something I need to get to the root of. [...]« Previous Entries
