im glad cam was so happy to see you, i bet that makes it all better after a long boring day!

I still have no idea what the kids will be for halloween. I think Will should fit Ross; dino costume from last year so he will wear that. I have a dragon costume in 0-6 months, im not sure if i can squeeze finn in it or not yet. Ross, i have no clue

My mom told me Winners has their costumes out already! I have no idea what Cam will be this year. I think we'll go to my parents, and a few neighbours. He doesn't even say mama or dada so I doubt he will attempt to say 'trick or treat' but he'll still be cute lol.

I should have a bit of a belly by then, no idea what I'll be! lol

Sitting here drinking hot coca on the hottest day of the year. I'm hoping the hot milk in it will help me sleep. I've had too many nights with only 3 hours of sleep while all my kids are sleeping for 11+ hours. It's not fair!

Why aren't you sleeping?!

On that note, Cam slept 630-1130, and then 1130-530!!!!! he has NEVER had 2 long stretches in a night. He then never really went back to sleep though, and I didn't go in because he wasn't freaking out and when I went in at 7, he'd totally peed through his pj's I changed him at 11:30!!! It was crazy!

STILL no computer. Sitting here twiddling my thumbs, counting down till lunch....I'd rather be with Cam.

YAY for Cam sleeping!! That's awesome! Sorry you still don't have a computer though, I've been there, it makes for extremely long days.

I have no idea why I haven't been sleeping the past few nights, but sleep last night was great!

I have come to a decision. After just having my own kids for the past three months, I've decided that I can't do home day care anymore. I'm looking after one extra kid today to help a neighbour out because her day care provider is away today and tomorrow and I'm going nuts!

It's sad when I'm counting down the hours until my extra child goes home isn't it? It's been a long day, although likely not as long as yours Jess.

It shouldn't be normal for me! I've run a home day care for years, I only took the last 3 months off while moving and was planning on setting up again for next month. I'm rethinking that now. I've had as many as 8 kids in my house at one time, including my own and didn't bat an eye, but today I'm ready to loose it.

Take a break!!!! You deserve it after the last few months of stress!!! I admire those that can take on more than their own kids every day...once and a while, I could do, every day 5 days a week I would find very trying.

I was sent a login and someone had an extra laptop from a co-op student that finished last week...so I have a temporary computer but not access to everything. Slowly getting organized!

Next week should be better

That's awesome!!! I'm so happy your DH got a new job quickly! I'm glad you got a computer too, that will make working so much better.

I was outside with my mom, all three kids, mom's friend and 3 of her grandkids today. I am so tired and sun burnt! I could honestly crawl into bed right now and sleep until morning. Too bad it's not even 7pm yet.

Temperature is quickly dropping here and it looks like it could storm, but nothing yet.

4 more sleeps until school starts!!! Not that I'm excited about sending the girls back or anything.

its been raining here all night (well since about 5pm) so dont worry its on the way

We decided we are going to take the kids to the elmvale zoo tomorrow, love that place! its great for smaller kids since it only takes a few hours to see everything. I think Ross will really enjoy it this time, hes really into animals right now

Thunder is just starting to roll in now. Looks like I may have a visitor to my bed tonight. DS and DD2 can sleep through it no problem, but DD1 calls me shaking and crying by the second loud crack every time. I'm just hoping that tonight she's tired enough from being out in the sun all day that she may actually sleep and not notice it.

I cant sleep lately lol 4am and this is the third time ive gotten out of bed.

I guess I shall get one thing off my mind thought, its been bothering me all day.

I know this young lady who is pregnant and drink enough redbull to stop a horse's heart. I understand caffine during pregnancy and how its tough to kick. (I mean if you want a coffee or two by all means!) But she drinks over 4 a day and I shudder to think of how this will effect her baby. Seen her in the grocery store and thought she was buying groceries but her cart was freaking packed with Redbull.

I know i shouldnt judge, but really??!!??

Yikes! That's a lot of caffeine! I know I drank a can of coke everyday with my last pregnancy, I tried not to but I was getting migraines without the caffeine. It was better to get a bit of caffeine than take migraine pills. I can't imagine drinking redbull though! Coke made my baby wiggly enough.

Never did get a storm last night. I could see the lightning and hear the thunder in the distance but we didn't get anything more than a bit of rain.
