- Is it just me, or does anyone else like Steve from SteveSongs on PBS Kids?
- Hudson is such a serious a-hole when it comes to eating solids. I dread feeding him as there are a select few foods he'll eat without getting pissed. His typical reaction is to stick his rock hard tongue out and just leave it there... like some dink head. And when I manage to sneak a spoonful of food in he literally holds his mouth open, with his tongue sticking out and just grunts and whines and looks around, avoiding me and the glob of food melting in his mouth. I hate feeding him so much (even more than I hate giving my kids baths!!) that I've even looked online to see if babies really NEED baby food... can't we just wait until he's able to gnaw real people foods? This baby food business is way too messy. ** I should mention... he loves his oatmeal, which I mix with apple juice. He gobbles it right up... so its not that he doesn't know how to swallow baby food... he just hates anything that isn't a fruit (and often doesn't like many fruits!). I try feeding him those dinners and he screams and gags like I'm trying to feed him dog poo...
- I'm loving my cars ESP (that is... electronic stability program) in these snowy conditions... it seriously keeps my car under so much more control. Love it. However... my backup beeper sensor is a p.i.t.a.... apparently when snow covers the sensors (must find out where those are), it alerts your car that there IS.Something. BEHIND.IT. Right. NOW. Freaked me out at Target.... I waited and waited for "whoever" get the hell out from behind my car and then I realized... there wasn't anyone.
- I got my hair cut today... its been nearly 4 months. I left the front somewhat longer (about chin length or a little below) and hacked up the back super short. I got home and Porter leaned out the back door and said "You're HOME now, Mommy! Your hair looks beautiful!" (awww!) Thank you, Grandma for prepping him to be a good little son!
Speaking of.... I'm still not sure what to do with our office/guest room. Our house could possibly be a 5 bedroom home... we have 4 bedrooms upstairs and the basement has a family room area and a bedroom/office as well.
Currently, I have the extra bedroom upstairs as my office AND our guest room. Eventually we'll be finishing the basement with drywall (has paneling up now).... I'm not sure whether it'd be better to have my office downstairs so that its near the family room (meaning... I could be nearby the boys and Ry if I was working... they could watch tv/play in the basement) but that'd also mean if the boys were napping I'd be further away from hearing them. OR... should we put the guest room in the basement (making it more private for guests) and keep my office upstairs (meaning... I'd be further away from family things if I was working during the day). Hmmmm what would you do?
