Eviction Date

Fetal Bear has recieved her notice. On Friday May 11, she will be forced from her warm, snug home, and join the rest of us! That gives me about 6 weeks to get Little Bear ready for her arrival. I just can't wait to meet her!

Book Clubs

Once upon a time ago, I used to belong to a book club. That's when I wasn't married with a family. Occasionally I really miss being involved with one. Especially when I've just finished a really amazing book, or have found an author that I think is incredible. Such is the case now... I recently just finished The Tenth Circle, by Jodi Picoult. Has anyone else read this book? It was so intense. It makes me glad that I'm not a teenager any longer, but at the same time, scares me to death that in a few years my own children will be teens. I purchased her new book, Nineteen Minutes, when Nana and I made our Costco run 2 weekends ago. I don't have the time/energy to devote to reading as I did whenI was kidless, but it is also holding my attention and scaring the crap out of me again. I do miss the Rubber Duck Book Club. I guess I either need to form a new one, that works around working mothers schedules or find a club that does.
Any takers?

Been Caught Reading!

I haven't been as diligent downloading and posting pictures as I would like. I was busy doing laundry and caught him in his room two weekends ago. I'm so glad my kiddo likes a good book!

Bath Time

LB has decided that he likes to help wash his hair during our nightly bath. He's actually gotten quite good at it.

He also likes to give his Bath Time Elmo a good scrubbing too!


Ok, maybe he's not as excited about school as I orginally thought. We pulled into Target this morning, and he squealed "Yeah! Scool!"
I guess he just likes getting to where he's going.

#1 Reason I stopped feeling gulity.......

about sending my kid to daycare. For the past week, whenever we pull onto campus, he squeals "Scoool", claps his hands, and yells "Yeah!" He can be so darn cute.

If you don't count spring break, which is in less than two weeks, I only have 5 1/2 weeks of work left before I start my maternity leave. Halleluiah!!! I might actually be able to enjoy my students more if I remember that one little detail.

Nana's Visit

We had a lovely weekend with Nana. We got to show her all kind of neat things that we routinely do. We showed her Little Bear's new bed and new Elmo bedding.

We even showed Nana how we use the potty. Of course, LB also now likes to stick his face and hands in it, to make sure that it in deed came out of his body!

We also went shopping and Nana got to meet Daddy for the first time! Every time Nana has been to visit, Daddy has been on travel.

Nana will be back in May to help out when Fetal Bear arrives. We had so much fun with her here. Grandma arrives next weekend and then Grandpa and Grandma L will be here in mid April. We've got quite a busy few weeks ahead of us.

Week 30

Apparently I have 69 days to go until Fetal Bear's due date. I'm ready now. Well, almost. We still have a TON of things to do around here, but I'm ready for her to be here and see how much our lives are going to change upon her arrival. She sits a lot lower then Little Bear did and is putting tremendous pressure on my back and hips. I've decided that my last day of work will be May 5th. That is, unless FB makes an earlier appearance. I'm not the nicest person to be around these days and the idea that the end is in sight is actually helping me to be nicer. Go figure!!! On a "sweeter" note, my sugars have been fantastic, if only because I'd already been following the DIABETIC DIET since I found out I was pregnant! Let's hope it's enough to keep her from becoming the size of a horse!

Ode to Sugar

Sugar and carbs,

oh how I will miss you.

No longer in my diet

Are you premitted.

Damn the Glucose Test!

No more potatoes,




Thank God for Splenda.

(Yes, this means I failed my 3 hour Test. I am so pissed at myself. I actually did really try this time. I haven't gained the same amount of weight. Now this means I HAVE to cook every night of the week. No ordering out. This sucks!)

Just a few pictures...

Just a few updated photos... LB feeding our favorite adoptive dog Emma. She happens to love coming over to our house during meal times.. I wonder why?????

LB hugging his Melmo.

And of course, pretending to use our new potty. He actually sat on it yesterday, fully dressed and shut the door on us for privacy. Mike and I laughed so hard, I about wet my pants.. and that's easy to do these days!

New Dance

Little Bear learned a new dance last night. The "I went Pee Pee on the Potty" Dance!! We bought him his own potty last weekend, and last night for the first time, he peed in it! Wouldn't that be nice to get him toliet trained BEFORE the baby comes? To have only ONE in diapers!!!
Wishful thinking I know, but one can have hope!
