B and I are recovering from colds. I initially caught it from B… but luckily I think we are both on the mend. Runny noses are never fun… not for Mommy and definitely not for B!!!! He does NOT like his nose wiped, that’s for sure!!!!
Sad news: Patrick’s cousin that was our age  passed away last Sunday afternoon. He had a motorcycle accident and didn’t survive. Patrick attended his funeral yesterday morning. I was unable to attend because of work conflicts, but it was nice that Patrick was able to make it.
I was able to sneak out of the office yesterday afternoon, though, to head to the Minnesota State Fair! B won’t be going for a couple of years yet but P & I have made it a yearly must-do. I did miss it the year that I was pregnant with B because of the huge ‘swine flu’ scare but I do enjoy going. We had lots of good eats.. including cheese curds [the BEST at the fair!], swedish meatballs on a stick, deep fried apple pie, pork chop on a stick, strawberry-rhubarb malt, egg roll on a stick, white razzy puppy [belgian waffle wrapped around white chocolate, dipped in dark chocolate and topped with whipped cream and raspberry drizzle], strawberries & cream, french fries, 1919 root beer, and beer on a stick!… it sounds like a disgusting amount of food but we shared everything and it was over a span of about 5 hours. It only happens once a year so I try to pack it in. Surprisingly, I wasn’t even over-stuffed by the time we left. No, I’m not prego again. 😉
My Parents’ Church had a sale yesterday and today. They get donations from Carters and Osh Kosh… mainly things they can’t sell in their stores anymore or in their outlets. I’m not sure how it’s decided what they give to the church, but it’s still good stuff!!!! I got a huge bag for only $27.25!!! Including a brand new Carter’s 3T 4-in-1 winter jacket!!!! That thing cost me a whopping 8$!!! My awesome haul also included a Melissa & Doug puzzle for 1$ and a pair of brand new Carters shoes for 1$… Hat & Mitten sets for 1$… just an awesome sale!!!! I ♥ when they have it and my Mom is able to get first dibs on most of it as she works with the ladies running it. It’s nice to have an ‘in’ sometimes!!! I gotta say… my Mom ROCKS! 🙂
I don’t know if I mentioned before or not on here… but B has started crawling out of the pack & play. No, he doesn’t sleep in it at home but he did used to sleep in that over at my Parents’ house! We got a crib for over there now but he still sleeps in one at daycare…. I’m not sure of the protocol for daycares… but I feel like she should provide a safe sleeping environment for the children she provides care for??? Or is that our responsibility? I’m not sure where the line falls there…. anyone have any ideas on that???
And…. I was wondering who all is starting or in the middle of… potty training???? B shows absolutely no interest in the toilet… the adult one or his so I know we’re not ready yet. But I know this age range is the beginning of that fun stuff. 🙂
Anyway, enough babbling. Hope everyone is doing well and is healthy.
Have a wonderful weekend all!!!
