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. 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 😉

  3. 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.

  4. 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. 🙂

  5. 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!!
