Long road trip with a 2 year old [Jun. 5th, 2011|09:24 pm]
In three short weeks we will be loading up our car with our 2 year old son, 50 lb dog, and very vocal siamese cat and leaving Anchorage for Seattle. From there we will be heading to Salisbury, Maryland. Any survival tips? Specifically pointer on how to keep the aforementioned toddler from peeing all over his car seat? I don't want to put him back in diapers because he will riot (NO MAMA! IS FOR TINY BABIES!) but I can't afford to spend $10 or more on cloth training pants. He has two friends in pull-ups and when he sees the pull ups he calls them diapers, so even going the disposable route would be a tough sale.

Also, any advice on preparing a toddler for a move?

ARGH!!! [Mar. 25th, 2011|02:19 pm]
 I had my teeth cleaned today and the dentist found my first cavity. :(

I am not a happy camper.

Now I have to decide what kind of filling I want. Anyone have any advice? It is apparently very very small and on the top on my back molar on the right side of my mouth so it will only show when I open my mouth really wide. Silver will be about $33, white $119.

Diapers [Aug. 20th, 2009|11:10 pm]
I really need to stop buying new diapers and covers because they are cute, especially small ones because Matthew is going to be moving to mediums soon, and really I wind up using prefolds and wool 90% of the time. But then I make the mistake of clicking on the for sale posts and then I wind up NEEDING something from it. Just now I found myself rationalizing that I ought to buy the covers Matty will outgrow soon becasue I can save them for another baby. I don't even want to get pregnant again yet!

Why oh why must diapers be so addictive?

Crib [Jun. 26th, 2009|01:27 am]
I finally got a crib for Matthew's room. After much nagging from my mother, my aunts, and pretty much every relative over 40 who heard I did not have one, I caved. I only got it because it was free, and I found a free mattress for it. I already had crib sheets and a crib dust ruffle inherited from Chastity and I picked up a bumper at the airmen's attic, so I didn't spend any money on it. The mattress is in good shape. If I find an inexpensive toddler bed or convertible crib I will use it for that. The crib however, is from 1988 and the pieces connect with plastic, which has become brittle and snapped in places over the past 21 years. There is no way in hell I will actually let Matthew stay in it, but I can honestly say I have one and it is kind of cute. Hopefully this will get them off my back.

I am not okay with moose! [May. 12th, 2009|03:02 am]

I've been worried about Brutus getting into trouble with Alaskan wildlife since we lived here. I let him out to go potty about ten minutes ago and unfortunately there was a moose out back. Brutus started barking his head off, which I am sure is what everyone in the neighborhood was dying to hear at three AM. Then I saw what he was barking at and while I was relieved that it wasn't a bear or wolf I wanted him inside, so then in case the neighborhood didn't know whose fool dog was barking I started calling his name. At first I was trying to be quiet, but then the moose started kicking the fence. I got louder, and made the mistake of stepping outside. Brutus really freaked out and started jumping towards the moose. Unfortunately they were in front of the gate. The moose kicked again and knocked the gate open. Luckily Brutus is stupid and didn't notice. I was throwing stuff at him and the moose trying to distract them from each other. After taking a grapefruit to the butt the moose sauntered off a bit. I would have thrown an orange next but she was eating a clump of dandelions and the milk jug to the head got Brutus's attention. He ran in and I had a flashback to the time he got attacked by an opossum and my mom and I were throwing stuff at them and squirting the opossum to get it away from the Brutus and the yard.  (BTW the opossums in Houston are pretty fierce. My sister’s cat was killed by one last week.)

If that moose at my strawberries I’m going to be pissed.

One week [Mar. 10th, 2009|11:56 pm]
[mood |boredbored]

It's been a week and I'm already ready for him to be home. I think I did a pretty good job staying busy this past week. I went to the gym one day but I only got thirty minutes on the treadmill in before Matthew woke up and wanted to eat, so I fed him while Dana finished her workout. COme to fnd otu it is a good thing he stopped me because after 2 weeks of no bleeding it started up again. I had my first adventure with shoveling snow. It took forever because Matthew wanted nothing to do with it so I had to have multiple shoveling sessions. On Sunday I stayed home all day and moped because it finally sunk in that Greg will not be home for a while.

Matthew is growing by leaps and bounds. Nursing still hurts, but it is getting better I guess.

Dana is going back to Wisconsin on Thursday. :(

My mom is coming on Friday. Hopefully we won't kill each other!
