Absolute Genius!

Our poor sweet Emily had a little bit of a bacterial skin infection recently.  That likely explains the screaming she did before bath time.  I bet the water stung her little bumps.  

She went to the Dr. and received a 10 day cycle of liquid antibiotics.   In the past Steve and I have always had trouble with tracking what day she started her meds, if she had the proper doses that day, etc.  There is already a lot to keep track of in our days.  

Well, with this last dose, I remember reading somewhere on a facebook post and genius way of keeping track of when you gave/took medicine.  Thank you Maureen!!  

Check this out.  It's absolutely genius!

I have always loved sharpies, now I love them even more.

'Pipad' Intervention?

I think we have a serious need for iPad intervention in our house.  During the week, the girls get little to no TV and very little iPhone/iPad use.  The weekends can be a different story.  If Steve and I are trying to get the house picked up, trying to get dinner on the table, we sometimes need a little help.

This past weekend, I had the girls Saturday morning by myself.  Steve was in Vegas.  I had to get them fed, dressed and out the door by 8:30am to get to Abby's dance class by 9.  At one point, Emily looked at me and said 'I want pipad'.  That's her way of saying iPad.

I knew she would keep herself out of harm's way (i.e. climbing and falling off of things) with the iPad.  When I asked her to go sit on the couch and told her that I would bring her the iPad, she did the cutest little dance, with the biggest squeal of excitement.  She was twirling in circles, yelling 'pipad pipad' with a big grin on her face..

Uh oh.  We need a toddler 'pipad' intervention.  Some weening of the device, breaking the dependency.  Wish us luck!

Yes, I've neglected this blog.  Between gearing up then down for the holidays, leaving one job after almost 6 years and starting a new one, I've had my hands full.

I've also been working on getting a little business I've been thinking about for a while now (at least 1-2 years) up off the ground.  I've been working on inventory and will hopefully get something out there in next few months.

Thanks for reading after my little hiatus.
