Bloody Sunday

I am hoping for a better day today than we had last night. Ruby decided to get up at 1:30 and scream bloody hell until after 2am. I had to remove the babe from her room and put her in mine to save her from the insanity....and of course, Ru was up right on schedule at 6am this morning announcing, "It's morning time, I'm awaaakkee." Fingers crossed for a good day (and a potential nap) as well as a good night tonight!!!! Baby sisters sharing a bedroom SUCKS! Have I already mentioned this?! ;)

Thanks to the creativejar for featuring Sew Yummy's felt popsicle on her blog!

Toilet Paper Baby

Little Lucy took her afternoon nap in our bedroom yesterday because this "sisters-sharing-a-room-during-afternoon-nap" thing basically sucks. Morning nap is fine since Ruby doesn't take one and bedtime is fine since they are both usually pooped but that 1pm nap is NOT WORKING! So, yesterday I decide she will start taking that nap in my room (again, where she had slept since she was born up until about a week and a half ago). I apparently put the pack and play too close to my nightstand because little miss grabbed the roll of toilet paper I have there (kleenex be damned) and shredded it filling the bottom of her bed with TP bits and then settling down hugging the roll like it was her lovey (who she had chucked into the rubbish bin next to the nightstand).....

Roll out

Yesterday I googled "what to do with fabric scraps" and found a website with several suggestions including crayon rolls! I have seen these bad boys before and wasn't really interested but having a ton of leftover fabric, I figured what the hell! I sat down at my little sewing machine and busted out two in no time and they are actually quite adorable up close and personal! My darling Ruby got the first one (as she always thinks if I am on the machine, I am making something for her) and the other I will include with my wares at the craft shows. And I made a third today (they are all Halloween themed since that spooktacular day is coming soon)!

So here we are, August 10th already...seems like summer only started when, in fact, it's coming to a close. All my life I have gotten the blues at the end of the summer. It always meant back to reality, schedules, and, back in the day, that we wouldn't see "the boys" as often. Now, here I am, 31 years old and it still means the same thing. Back to being home with the girls alone all day Mon-Fri, back to waking up early because the man is back to school (up and at 'em by 7 am), and back to missing the boy (er, man). He might not be the same boy as back then but he's #1 now. So tonight maybe I will sit on the deck and sweat a little in this humid, icky heat because before I know it, I will be bitching about the cold...and trust me, I WILL be bitching.

Hiiiii, Fishies!

A parking ticket negates free parking and money saved by a husband's MTA card at the aquarium. Other than that, a lovely day! Checked out the brother in laws new house in East Boston, walked down to the water, then the aquarium (Lu kept saying "Hiiii, fishies"), lunch at Faneuil Hall outside (Ru used the restroom 3 times in 1.5 hours), Davis Sq for ice cream (no parking between 4-6, who can read?). But seriously, folks, we had a swell day. Swell.
Oh, and the T + 2 kids + stroller = sweaty mummy and daddy. Just an FYI.

Ice Cream Social

Little lady Lu had her first ice cream cone yesterday!

So did big sister...there was no sharing involved. Would it be any other way?

Tuesday, August 4, 2009 least my kid didn't get kicked in the face

Yesterday we took the girls to Southwick's Zoo in Mendon, MA. It turned out to be an awesome day. They were both into the animals. Ru especially loved the kangaroos and deer. I loved the giraffes (of course) and they had a baby giraffe that was the cutest little thing...besides my own babies. The weather was great, the tab a bit steep but eh, "whateb", as Ru would say. When we got to the deer park Ru was chasing the deer and yelling, both of which are against "the rules", but they didn't seem fazed by her. But then last night I read that another little girl was actually kicked in the face yesterday when one of the deer was startled!! Dodged that bullet, little lady!
