Good morning!

Glad Levi's better

I hear you on the commuting, Kim. I'm so freaking thankful that I don't have to spend hours of my day driving from point a to b. to working from home! Hope your computer smartens up for you.

Jennifer, where was the field trip to? O has one on Thursday to a museum. I wasn't selected to come. Dis!

Going to go hunt for some Halloween costume stuff today and possibly start Christmas shopping? Possibly.

Good morning!

I have a minor dilemma. I've been asked to consider becoming the Monday to Friday babysitter for a friend's baby. It would be from January to July-ish, the baby will be about 6 months in January. I don't know if I want to! The money would be nice but taking care of a baby...I don't know! I feel like I've finally really hit my stride with being a sahm and am really enjoying it and come the fall I'll be back at school full time so it will all be over. Do I savour the last few months of it or suck it up and take on the extra work? Please advise!!

tough call....I would say unless you really "need" the money....pass on it. Enjoy your time at home with the kiddos while you have it. I mean I know extra money is always a good thing but taking on a babysitting gig is a big endeavor and if you aren't really feeling it I would just pass on it and enjoy being a SAHM for now. Tough call I am sure!

Hi,

I agree with Kim. If you don't really need the money, pass. I did the home daycare thing while Leah was little (18 months - 4.5 years) and it was a big challenge and took away from my enjoyment of that time with Leah. There were good times, but also tough, unpleasant times. I really appreciate my time alone with James now, and the freedom of us being able to go out and do whatever we want.

For Leah's field trip, we went to Saunders Farm. It's a farm with huge mazes, some impressive play structures, and other stuff.

That's sad that they passed on your offer to volunteer. I can't imagine Leah's school doing that. They will take all the help they can get. There must have been a lot of moms wanting to help out for the museum trip. You know, you could always just show up at the museum anyways.

Kim, is your computer working better today? I'm not a fan of updates. There are always issues after. DH has been banned from doing updates on my computer after too many problems.

Nice fireworks, Amanda!

Thanks guys. I think you're right. I will let them know tomorrow that I will have to pass. I feel bad, but so it is. The baby is better off with someone who is eager to do it.

Good morning!

Is it just me or should it not be Friday by now? Oh well. The weather is supposed to be warm and lovely so at least there's that.

Have a great Thursday!

Hi ladies! How was everyone's Friday?

James and I went to an animal farm with some friends this morning. He had a great time until a goat bit him. He wouldn't let me put him down after that. Then we spent some time at the park. It was a gorgeous day here today. Possibly our last nice day before the cold settles in for good.

Leah lost her first tooth today. It happened on the bus on the way home. When the bus got to our stop, she ran out yelling and her mouth was full of blood. It was a little startling, but once I realized what had happened and we cleaned her up, we celebrated. She is so pumped for the tooth fairy. She even went right to bed instead of playing.

We are "trunk or treating" (trick or treating car-to-car in a parking lot) with a bunch of other families tomorrow morning (it's supposed to rain, boo). Leah is also pumped about this. Fingers crossed James wears a costume!

I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Things don't look good on the news, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed things don't get as bad as they're predicting. Keep us posted, Kim.

Good morning! We are getting hurricaned on too. Levi's daycare is closed today and tomorrow. DH's school closed and my work is closing at noon. We have no back up, so if the power goes out, it will be dark lol. Definitely hoping it's not going to be as bad as they think. Stay safe Kim!!

Amanda, you stay safe too! At the very least, you will get some extra family time. Are you guys stocked up on food and water and stuff, just in case?
