I see dirt.

So the kids and I planted some pansies today in an old container I haven’t planted in many many years.

First we removed some of the old dirt, loosened it up, and mixed it around:


Then we mixed in some new potting soil:


Then we planted the flowers:



Then we watered them:


Then Abby did one of her favorite things:


And Anton did his most favorite thing:

Abby: I’m a giant and I’m going to eat you up.

Daddy: Oh no.

Daddy: OH NO!

Abby: mmmmm, you’re head is yummy.

I really do not know where she gets this from…

EJ and I are talking tonight and I ask him if he is happy.  He tells me he is most of the time.  I ask about the times that he isn’t. He tells me that it’s when he’s at school and they are making him work.  I tell him he should be proud of the work he does because he’s really good at it.  He then precedes to tell me that he can’t wait until he is older “…and can tell other people to write a 3 paragraph paper on…ummm…something like…erosion.”  They way his mind works is just…ummm..something like…confusing.

Tuesday: Abby modeling one of her new shirts.


Saturday: Celebrating babies is so much fun!

Abby: I’m a big Abby.

Abby has a UTI

March 18, 2009 at 8:18 pm | Posted in Children | Comments Off on Abby has a UTI

Abby started having accidents a few days ago and I just took it as Abby not taking the time to go to the potty.  Then she started getting up in the middle of the night to go pee.  Then last night she spiked a fever that went down with Motrin.  

Her fever didn’t return until she got home from school; again it went down with Motrin.   But, that’s when I realized that she was complaining about her back hurting every time her fever spiked.  

Her fever spiked again around 5:45, that’s when I called the doctor.  

My mother rushed over to watch Anton while I took Abby in.  She had her first experience peeing in a cup.   And I had my first experience having my hand peed on.  

Fun times I tell ya, fun times.

Potty time!  Yes, I do believe that she is 100% potty trained now (finally!) of course now that I’ve said (typed?) it she’ll have an accident…

Update: I should never have tempted fate.


Making soap!

Impromptu photo shoot.
