Hello It's Me

Gosh, I can't believe it's been a week since I last blogged! I am so sorry! I have been so busy with all my projects - there just hasn't been a moment for me to sit and reflect on the day. Of course, I should be doing about a million things right now too, but I just couldn't let another day go by without putting something out here.

Of course, our podcast, Musing Mommies is going so well!! We have so many listeners - it is fantastic! Thanks to all of you who listen and comment on our site; we really, really love our fans!

Then there is the way cool Company Girl project! We are getting tons of submissions for the images! I just love looking through them every day and posting them to the site. And this week, Rachel Anne is giving a fantastic prize to a random submitter - a $30.00 gift card to Sam Moon Trading Company!! She has extended this week's contest till Sunday, so get your submissions in! There is still one more week for submissions for the book, and I know we are going to get some great images!

As for the fam, we are doing just fine. The boys are growing so fast - I just can't keep up. Port has been on a 2 day nap strike and I am praying that today we will be back to our old routine. I can't handle no nap days, it is just too much.

Kiddo has been with me this week in allergy hell. We have both been sneezing and itching - poor Kiddo may eventually rub the nose off his face. Two nights this week he has been plagued with terrible nose bleeds - gushers. Hubby is now an expert at getting blood out of the carpet. ick! We have installed a humidifier in his room and each night now I have to swab his nose with a saline gel. Kiddo has been pretty good about the whole thing, though he does get a tad freaked out when it happens in the middle of the night and he isn't quite awake. I had to spend some time with him late Tuesday night talking about things that make us happy, just to get him to calm down and go back to sleep. He doesn't remember the conversation at all. He also got a nose bleed the other day while swinging on the swing set. That one concerned me because he hadn't been rubbing his nose at all; he was just having fun and his heart rate was really up. I wonder if he has a blood vessel pretty close to the surface in his nose. Most of the bleeds are only on one side. I read online that sometimes Dr.s will go in and cauterize the blood vessel to stop the frequent bleeds. That may be something we have to look in to.

Wednesday I took the kids with our mom's group on a tour of our local HEB (grocery store). The kids had an absolute blast, and for a free event it was a cool thing to do. Kim and I wrote more about it over at the Musing Mommies blog if you want to check out the details.

Yesterday I was supposed to take the kids to tour a dairy farm (shhh, don't tell Kiddo), but it didn't happen due to another late night nose bleed. Instead, I took the kids to Garden Ridge. I know, how does that make up for a missed farm trip?? lol! It probably doesn't, but we hadn't been for a while so I really wanted to go check things out.

That store changes every time I go. From the outside it looks like it could go out of business any minute, but on the inside, they recently put in a whole new check out area with new registers and almost all of the merchandise is price marked with new fancy stickers with bar codes (before it was just the old fashioned stamp and slap price stickers and the amounts had to manually keyed into the register). They had tons of patio furniture this time - chair after chair after set after table after rocker, chaise, etc. It went on for ever. Their kitchen/dining department has dwindled to make way for the patio furniture and the millions of pots and outdoor decor.

What really struck me though was this time they had an absolute ton of weird, irregular merchandise - things like suitcases and purses to totes and even socks and underwear. They even had a couple of tables of medical scrubs. But what caught my attention was an entire section of BOOKS!

Table after table after table - classics to modern, fiction to non fiction, children's to tweens to self help to cooking and gardening; there was so much to look at! They even had coloring books and children's workbooks, audio books and some dvds as well. The dvds included a bunch of lesser known movies, but also children's titles including The Wiggles, Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends, Big Comfy Couch, Rollie Pollie Ollie and the like. And the dvd's were $5.99 and LESS. I could have spent hours just looking through all the books. I picked up a couple of organic gardening books for less than $4 each.

Speaking of the garden, it is doing well. We are still getting a couple of zucchini and a hand full of green beans a day. The cucumbers are starting to appear and we have a couple ear of corn growing as well. The tomatoes are blooming like crazy, but I haven't seen any fruit yet. The transplant tomatoes are perking back up finally and should be ok. I can't say the same for the sprouts I planted in the new garden - most everything appears to have died, except for 2 jalapeno pepper plants and maybe one lima bean. I think I will stick to "from seed" growing, since I seem to have better luck with that. So, I poked a few more lima beans in the ground and sowed some black beans as well. Hopefully I'll see some sprouts in a couple of weeks.

I was cleaning off the little snap shot camera the other day and came across a bunch of pictures from Kiddo. I also found a bunch of pictures of drawings he's done recently. I thought I would share. Kiddo came to me with this one and said, "Mommy, I drew a car with a spoiler and a super charger." I had no idea he even knew what those things were, but here is the proof!

And of course, more of the Wall-E cast of characters. I spy Wall-E, Eve, M-O and PR-T!I have more drawings to show, but I haven't had a chance to edit them yet. Meanwhile, here are some of the pics Kiddo took. Of course there are a ton of self portraits; up the nose mostly, but I thought this one was interesting. He appears to be standing belly to the wall shooting down into his mouth?!?I thought this was a cool shot of the fan.And of course there are a lot of images of the cutie patootie!Here he figured out how to take 16 images in a matter of a second and this was the result.I thought this was a way cool self portrait with sun flare!So there are tons more, but that is all I have for now. It's time for me to go to bed.

Until,

Little Susie

On my way home from the mall tonight I observed a man jogging down the street with a dog on a leash. In front of him was a young boy on a bicycle. It has been raining all afternoon and the young boy, wearing a white shirt, had a very large mud splatter on the back of his shirt, presumably from the spray off the back tire of his bike.

I thought about how cute he was, peddling as fast as he could to keep up with his dad and the dog, and how my own Kiddo would most likely react to seeing so much mud on the back of his shirt.

And then suddenly my thoughts were directed back in time...

When I was very young, I had a favorite little doll that I carried with me a lot. Her name was Susie (my name for her - after my mom's best friend), and she wore blue pajamas with white eyelet trim and had a pink bow tying her bonnet. One little lock of blond hair came out of the bonnet and her bottom was a "bean bag" (full of nut shells). She had a pull string that when pulled, allowed her to say the sweetest things.

Anyway, one day I was playing with a friend out in my front yard and I had Susie out there with me. My friend, who was riding her bike, swooped in and snatched Susie away from me and attached her to the back of her bike seat.

I was so mad; I didn't want her to take Susie because I was afraid something would happen to her. I remember screaming to my friend to bring her back to me. After a loop around the cul-de-sac the doll was returned and I was crushed to discover she had indeed suffered an injury. Her head had rubbed on the back tire of the bike, and a deep groove was worn into her head.

I tried to cover it with the lock of hair and the edge of the bonnet. For weeks I kept a band aid over the blemish. Every time I took off the band aid I prayed that she would be miraculously healed. I hated that she had such a nasty mark on her. And eventually, I stopped playing with Susie all together because of it. I just couldn't get past the mark on her head.

Several years later (I am thinking it was just a few years ago) I found Susie in a box in our attic. She was just as I had remembered, with dirt smudged cheeks and that nasty spot on her forehead. I smoothed the eyelet trim and rubbed the pink satin ribbon between my thumb and index finger. Then I pulled her string to hear her speak again and it snapped, leaving the pull loop in my hand. Susie's last words were, "I Love You".
{1970 Talking Baby Beans doll, aka Susie}
I love you to Susie. ;)

my poor dog! she puts up with so much!



Happy Friday Company Girls!! (and other beloved regulars)

Wow, what a week it has been! Have you all seen the entries for the Company Girl Photo Contest?!? Amazing! It is going to be soooo tough to narrow it down. There are so many great moments captured. If you haven't checked it out, stop on by and scroll through. And please submit something if you have a great image to share as well. We are loving seeing all of your memories!

Miss Rachel Anne blessed me this week with not only allowing me to help her in the Book Project and Photo Contest, but she also granted myself and my podcast co-host Kim an interview for our Musing Mommies Podcast!! It was so fun talking to her via Skype, seeing her face and expressions - it felt like she was right there with us! Her interview will be featured in next week's show, which will air sometime mid week.

Things have been pretty hectic here this week. I managed to take the boys to 2 play dates (a record for Miss Homebody me! Lol!) Wednesday we went to a really nice park to play with some friends. Kiddo had a rough go of it. One of his little buddies was not in the mood to play with him and the rejection was a bit too much for Kiddo to take. It broke my heart to see him crying on the playground. For the past couple of weeks, I have really been questioning our decision to not send him to Kindergarten this year, but after seeing him unable to emotionally handle the social aspect of a play date, I now think we have made the right decision. While he is academically more than ready to go, and while he has a very very strong desire to start school, I just don't feel that he is ready emotionally . He just couldn't grasp why anyone wouldn't want to play with him. To him, everyone is still a friend. He doesn't really understand when someone is being unfriendly to him. Just today we were at the sprinkler park and another boy his age was chasing him around and beating him upside the head with a bucket. He just kept running and running away and telling the kid to stop and even though I could tell it wasn't pleasant, he still wanted to play with the kid (even after a big fall, sliding on the concrete, serious road rash on his chest and his own bucket getting broken because of it). When I asked him why he didn't tell the kid to stop or why he didn't come get me he said "Mommy I was handling it all by myself." Such a big kid.

And speaking of big - he is right in the midst of another huge growth spurt. I had to pull out half of his pants and put them away because they were all suddenly too small. He put on his Mr. Incredible costume today, and even though just a few weeks ago it fit him perfectly, it now looks like I shrank it in the wash! (I didn't) I don't know what we are going to do about clothes for him. I guess I need to start hitting garage sales or something. Shoes are a whole other issue. *sigh*

{random photo: jammies, superhero mask, one black glove. the dinosaur was attacking me.}rawr!

Little Port is getting to be such a big boy too. He is growing like a weed. When it is time for naps or bed time, he practically dives into the crib. The boy likes his bed and he likes to sleep. Though, he's been waking me up around 6 AM pretty much every day for the past 2 weeks now. I am not too happy about that. I have about determined that the 8-10 hours of broken sleep I was getting when he was waking me up 20 times a night was way more manageable than the 6 hours of solid sleep I am now getting. I think I probably need to start going to bed earlier. Hubby and I are really enjoying our time alone in the evenings though. We've never had that before (well I guess we had it before kids, but not since).

But back to Port, he finally has learned how to clap (he's 13 months old). Sort of. hee hee! I never really tried to teach him before because, well, I just kinda forgot. I am not a "clapper" so it never really occurred to me. But about a month ago I was watching a little boy in church that was probably about 6-8 months old and he was clapping away! So I tried to see if Port could do it - nope! For about a week after I started trying to teach him, he would slap my hand or pat his legs, but he just couldn't figure out how to put his hands together. Then a few days ago, he got up off the floor, walked over to me and looked right at me and clapped! It was so funny, like it had just clicked in his head! Now he will only do it once or twice, but at least I know he can.

This week he also started climbing up on the couch all by himself. Thankfully he could already get down unassisted, but the climbing up is totally new. Now he tries to climb everything. And counter tops are also no longer out of reach. Back we go to putting everything on the back of the counter top. ugh.

So last night at about 9:30 Hubby and I were sitting in the office working when we heard 3 gunshots very close to our house. Apparently some individuals in a pick up truck fired out the window as they were driving past our street! I was seriously freaked out. Thankfully no one was hurt. Our neighborhood has been very quiet the past few years so I was kinda shocked. The theory is that some kids were goofing off, but I'm not sure. It sure did wake up our street though - everyone was outside for a long time talking to the cops. I think every house on the street called them!

In more gardening news, we are harvesting 2-3 zucchini a day now. It seems the more we pick, the faster the others grow! I did discover another plant that had been bored by that beastly squash bug. UGH! I am so tired of those things! I can't find the larva on that plant either, but I cut into it pretty good so hopefully I skewered it in the process. Hopefully the plant survives too because it has several large zucchs on it already. A few days ago we transplanted the tomatoes to the new bed and today I planted the jalapeno peppers, the lima beans, the peas, carrots and transplanted the bell peppers as well. Everything in the original garden is blooming and exploding - the corn looks so cool and the cucumbers are about to produce too. Even the poor little onions that have been smothered by the zucchini plants are doing ok. Tomorrow I will plant the black beans, more onions, the broccoli (though I don't think they will make it) and some parsley.

I am excited about the garden and look forward to tending it every evening. After Port goes down for the night Kiddo and I go out and "work" in the garden (well, I work and he smells flowers! Lol!). It is really relaxing and I find I want to keep working it long after the light is gone. I wish I had more time to tend it during the day, but I have to pretty much stick to nap times for that.

Anyway, this weekend we will no doubt be finding new ways to cook zucchini - I am thinking about maybe grilling some on Monday! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Until,
D :)

Three Days

On Saturday...
We were so excited to discover the zucchini! But then we discovered this...
It was eating my zucchini plants. We lost one completely. Another had to be sliced, diced and transplanted. I think it will survive, but it won't put out any veggies for a while. I also had to hack away at another plant, but I never found the larva inside. Hopefully the plant will survive too. See how the leaves of these zucchini plants are bigger than my head?!?
The plants are enormous!! And so far we have about a dozen zucchini growing. That beauty in the first picture from Saturday? Well, this was it today...
We harvested it, and I measured... 11 1/2 inches long! LOL! I can't wait to cook it for supper tomorrow night!

And it only took 3 days... ;-)

Company Girl


So....I am involved in yet another exciting new project!

Today, Rachel Anne Ridge of Home Sanctuary unveiled a new adventure she is taking - she is writing a book called Company Girl, based on an essay she wrote several years ago.

From the Company Girl Website:
"“Company Girl,” a gift book that will be published in Fall 2009, is dedicated to girlfriends everywhere.

Once published, this book will be one that every woman will want to share with a friend. It will be a perfect gift for both special occasions and those “just because!” times that girlfriends know so well. "

Rachel Anne is holding a photo contest for the book - asking for submissions from her readers and the Company Girls that joined her on Home Sanctuary. Submissions for the book will be taken for 3 weeks, then readers will vote for their favorite images.

And what will I be doing?? Well, Rachel Anne has blessed me with the great honor of assisting her in the contest, the final selection of images and the preparation of the selected images for publication in the book! WOW! I cannot express how excited and humbled and honored I am by this opportunity.

Please head on over to Company Girl and check out the story behind the book and the first few submissions. And if you have an image you would like to enter, please check out the guidelines first and then upload your image through the upload page. I can't wait to see all the submissions and heartwarming moments captured!!

First Fruits


Happy Friday Company Girls (and Beloved Regulars)!

Come on in, I have coffee ready for you. Personally my coffee is coming to me via IV, because my darling baby decided to rise before the chickens this morning. As I cradled him the best I could (he has gotten so BIG) in the darkness, I breathed in the scent of his hair and enjoyed the warmth of his squishy baby-ness...and in the dark with only the sound of the fan and our synchronized, rhythmic breathing, I thought to myself how even though it was so early and I was still so tired, the moment was just too good to miss.

And then, he tooted.
And he giggled in the way only a boy who just tooted would. And thus began our day.

*sigh*

I have to keep him in either a cloth diaper or a sposie with shorts these days or this is what I find when I turn back around. (Pardon our kitchen floor. It was partially ripped up when we started our new floor project, and after finding out how hard it was going to be to get the linoleum up off the concrete, the project got put on hold for a bit.)

Port's hair was a bit long, so just before our trip to Houston last week I (with the help of my good friend Kim) gave him his first official haircut. Here he is before...and after...
Port also experienced his first whole apple the other day. He very much enjoyed it.
Here he is after getting his first big taste.
I was able to harvest the "first fruits" from my garden this week. I have two little spinach plants struggling to stay alive out there, so I decided to go ahead and pick some spinach while I could, before the worms eat everything.I picked these beauties a few days ago, washed them and stored them in the fridge.Aren't they lovely? Even after a few days in the fridge they were still nice and healthy looking.
They were mighty tasty in my salad. But, what is that??!?
Ewwww!

Would you believe that even after several days in the fridge he was still alive??

Thankfully he didn't end up in my salad. ACK!

Well now that I've totally grossed you all out, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Until,
D ;)

PS. If you are a fan of PODCASTS and you are a mom, you will love Musing Mommies! Episode 8 is ready for listening and this week we talk about all things *Beauty*. We would so love it if you would check us out!

So Done

I should be blogging about something, I know. But in all honesty, I just don't really have much to say right now. I feel like I am blogging the same thing over and over and over...

Port is teething again - another molar. His gums are twice their usual width where the tooth is trying to push through. He is twice as fussy as he normally is. ;-) Kiddo is driving me nutso as usual because we don't go enough places - but it's too hot in the afternoons and with Port waking me up at 6:30 every morning I just don't have the energy to do much before noon. Then, by the time I wake up, it is time for Port's nap...we just don't get out much. The playgroups I am a member of don't do as much as they used to, so there are less opportunities to get out with them as well.

The whole thing is a vicious cycle, staying in the house makes everyone nutty which makes me yell more and makes lots more tears and fussing, which makes me want to go out even less which makes everyone more fussy which runs me down and makes me depressed.... it goes on and on and on.

And on top of it all I have a ton of things I need to do, that have been put off for sooooo long, and I just have no desire to do any of it. There just isn't enough concentrated time in the day for me to tackle projects because I get interrupted every 2 minutes.

The baby just walked up and pinched my arm. Hard.

Anyway, I haven't fallen off the planet or anything. I am just hiding out in the house, wishing for, above all, a nap.

I'll try to muster up something more interesting soon.

Until,

Crank It Up

Sometimes having a baby sucks.
{Images from 2008, more found here}
Like on days like today, when the whole family is on their way to the annual Art Car Parade, and I am stuck here in the house, because, as always, the timing of the event runs right in the middle of nap time.
Nap time.

The holiest, sacred block of time in the day.

It can make or break a day you know.
So I am forced to weigh the elements here. Take the baby and go to the parade, knowing that he would only get about 1/3 of his daily nap (in the car no less) and then be a cranky, cranky, Crankster for the rest of the day. Or bow out of the festivities in the hopes that the afternoon/evening will go a lot easier.

Because you know who has to deal with the Crankster if he is being a trouble maker.

And since I didn't get much sleep last night...I guess I'll have to pass on the parade.

boo.

Until,

Whirl Away

We had a busy, busy weekend. Hubby had a church group motorcycle ride on Saturday so kiddo and I kept busy by repotting a bunch of house plants. I had several that desperately needed new pots and soil, and while I think I ended up killing a couple, the ones that seem to be thriving now look so much better than before. I still have a few more to do, but I ran out of potting soil.

When Hubby got home he discovered a strange email from a company confirming his order for colon cleanser. The email had his name, his address, his cell phone number and the last 4 digits of our credit card.

The problem is, he didn't order any colon cleanser. {if he did, do you think I would tell you? *wink*}

And of course, at 10PM on Saturday night, the company was closed for the evening.

- until Monday morning. DOH!

Sunday morning we got up to go to church, and just before we were walking out the door the phone rang. It was a recorded message from our credit card company concerning suspicious activity. On the way to church I called the 800 number on the back of my card (not the number left in the phone call - just to be safe) and sure enough, someone had gotten a hold of our credit card number.

The suspicious activity? Well we only use that card for purchases usually totaling $50 or more, only every now and then and we pay it off immediately. In the past couple of days the card had been used for 4 or 5 purchases, all under $6 each.

LOL!

I guess the thief thought they could slide under the radar by making small purchases.

But here is the kicker.

All the purchases were being sent to us. The merchandise included colon cleanser, Itunes, acai berry pills, some cosmetic something or another and a couple other supplements and diet pills.

uh....

ok.

So we canceled the card and a new one will be issued to us. I still have no idea how they got the number. Our best guess is that the information from an online order was intercepted and they have been sitting on the information for a while now. ugh.

At church, Port discovered his tongue and proceeded to play with it throughout the service. Of course, he would do that the weekend after the big swine flu panic epidemic scare, whatever. And of course, it would be the one weekend that a mom brought her daughter and pulled out a big bucket of toys for every kid in the room to drool chew spit up on share. And share they did. I just knew we were coming home with an extra germy passenger.

While Port napped Kiddo and I worked in the garden while Hubby built another raised garden bed. Then we got the troops together and headed out to Hutto to a farm. We had a Senior photo shoot scheduled - I was to take the portraits and Hubby was photographing the senior jumping his motorcycle while wearing a cap and gown. It was so fun!

We were at the shoot until just past sunset and then had to rush back home in time for me to meet my podcast co-host, Kim, for our weekly meeting. We were running really late, so Hubby dropped me off at Starbucks with her and then took the kids home to put hem to bed (really late and really cranky - Hubby was a saint! Especially when faced with a diaper-change-gone-wrong-pee-pee-fountain-shower...poor Hubby!). I went into Starbucks to place my order, and because it was so late, I got a slice of lemon pound cake and an apple fritter for Hubby for free!! Woo hoo!

The meeting went well and Kim brought me home where I collapsed in a heap shortly after. What an amazingly long and busy weekend!

I don't usually like being that busy, but it was really nice for a change. It almost felt like we had more purpose, more life. Funny how that happens.

Until,
D :)

Iron Man


Is it Friday already!?! Welcome Company Girls! Sorry I missed you last week. I still visited your blogs, but didn't have a chance to post one of my own.

How are things with you? The next few weeks are going to be busy for us. This weekend is chocked full of things to do and next weekend we will be visiting the inlaws. Somewhere in there I have to fit in a couple of photo sessions, plant a whole new additional garden and keep up with the kids at the sprinkler park (it opens this weekend, yay!!!). Thanks so much for stopping by my little blog!

Yesterday Kiddo was bugging me to take him to the park.

please, please, please, please, pul-eeeeeeeeeeese!

ugh

I really didn't feel like going to the park, and I needed to run some errands anyway so I told him if he was good while running errands we would stop at Sonic for a drink after we were done.

We went by the post office then on to Walmart. Joy!

And as soon as we got into Walmart Kiddo started asking me about what I was buying for him.

Because you know, it is always something. *eye roll*

He goes through phases like this, where if I don't buy him something, anything on a shopping trip he gets terribly upset. So I immediately stopped the cart, got right down on his level and told him very sternly that he needed to stop asking me - that just because we were in a store, it didn't mean that we were going to get him anything and if he continued to pester me about it I was going to take him home and he would not be allowed to shop with me anymore. He immediately stopped asking me for things.

Oh yeah, I'm good. ;)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Kiddo has this thing for dressing up in his Halloween costumes and running around playing "superhero". He has a Dash costume, a Mr. Incredible costume and a Spiderman costume that have seen more use and wear than most Halloween costumes will ever see. I suppose his love is equivalent to a little girl dressing up in princess gear...

So because of this, I am always keeping an eye out for costumes on clearance - because honestly the costumes he has are about to fall apart.

***~***~***~***~***~***~***

I hate it when I have to put my foot down about something and then have to eat my own words. It totally sucks. And I suppose I could have handled this particular situation differently, but...

Mere minutes after very bluntly telling Kiddo he was not getting anything from this shopping trip, I round a corner to see a small display of clearance merchandise on the shelf. And sitting at the top was an Iron Man costume set, complete with mask. Normally $20, it was marked down to $7. And it was the only one left.

I very discretely grabbed it off the shelf and slipped it into the cart when Kiddo wasn't looking.

A good five minutes later he spotted the huge box in the cart. He asked me who the costume was for, and in a moment of weakness I told him that it was for someone's birthday.

{I know, I can't believe I lied either. ugh}

Well, even with the lie it still opened up a whole can of worms - Who's birthday was it? How old were they going to be? Was it a costume party? What was he going as? Can he buy a toy? "but I have a dollar, what can I get?"

ugh, ugh, ugh

I told him we would talk about it in the car, so of course he remembered and asked me first thing. I told him that I did buy the costume for him to have eventually and if he could be good for me for the whole day (mind you it was almost 2pm, but I still didn't think he could do it) with no time outs, no getting in trouble, no whining or fussing; if he could be nice to his brother and nice to me and his Daddy and not give us an attitude for the rest of the day, then he could have the costume. But if he got in trouble, got a time out, didn't listen or was rude or mean to his brother the deal was off and we would have to start all over today.

I just knew he wouldn't make it.

.
.

Guess who's been wearing an Iron Man costume all day?

Ah, the power of the superhero!

Until,
D :)
