Random stuff

Ava was trying to tell me about something the other day in the car. I couldn’t figure out what one of the words was that she was saying, so I kept guessing – incorrectly. After repeating herself about 8 times and me incorrectly guessing 8 times she said exasperated, “Mom, you are driving me crazy.”
Ha! Just you wait sweet girl. ;)
Julian’s first tooth came through on Tuesday (6/12/07). I never even knew he was teething. Guess that’s a good thing unless it means I was too busy to notice. Seriously though, he’s been a nonstop drooling machine for months (his nickname around here is “droolian”) and didn’t give any other clues. He’s such a happy baby. This, of course, means his days of gnawing on daddy’s nose and mommy’s chin are numbered. ————————————————————————————————–
I was recently contacted by author Elizabeth Pantley to review her newest book – “The No-Cry Discipline Solution: Gentle Ways to Encourage Good Behavior Without Whining, Tantrums, and Tears” – on my blog. The (personalized and autographed *grin*) book arrived in the mail yesterday and I eagerly dove in. It looks like it will be a good read and will definitely have practical application. :) More to come at a later date.
We had our upstairs shower redone last week. No more hole in the wall! Woohoo! Maybe now I won’t be embarrassed to take pictures of my kids in the bathtub. Although we have to add some texture to parts of the walls and repaint a little bit, it looks quite nice and is a huge improvement.

  1. Looks like a good book – along the same lines as a book I have called “Setting Limits: How to Raise Responsible, Independent Children by Providing Clear Boundaries .” How neat that Ms. Pantley came to you requesting your review – your blog is really getting out there!

  2. I’ll eagerly await your book review!

    Kai was the same way with teething. Constantly drooling and teeth popping in with nary a cry.

  3. It’s really cool that you’ll review the book.
    As for Julian’s teeth do you anything to celebrate.
    According to our traditions the first one to notice a baby’s teeth buys him/her a gift. And another tradition is cook wheat berries, because they look like baby’s teeth ;)

  4. Wow, I love Elizabeth Pantley’s books. I didn’t even realize she has a discipline one out. I ca’t wait to hear about it. I’m currently reading her potty training book.

  5. Ha!
    When Meghan is saying something, and I’m just not “getting it,” she’ll say “Mom, sometimes you’re a just pain in the butt.” Great.
    So impressed that you’ve been asked to review Pantley’s new book. I loved “No-Cry Sleep Solution.” Lots of excellent advice.
    “Droolian” – LOL. :)

  6. LOL at Ava. What a cute little nut! and LOL at “Droolian!”

    Ironically, I just got an email that I have “No-Cry Discipline Solution” on hold at the library. It looks good and I’m eager to read it (skim through it quickly between everything else…)

    And woo-hoo on having the shower done!!
