September 6th Catching Up

JR starts back on day shift after tonight’s shift. That means I have to share the bed again, darn. But, that also means we’ll be on the same “schedule”, so it’s not so bad. 🙂 Our anniversary was the 31st and we didn’t get a chance to celebrate it. 13 years. Maybe we’ll get the […]

Catching up on stuff

It’s been a few weeks since I updated the blog, so I have a lot of stuff to talk about. Delaney said her first “I love you” a couple of weeks ago. She didn’t say it to me or to JR, she said it to Brianna. No big surprise since she loves her sissy so […]

First Morning of 3rd Grade

Today was the first day of 3rd grade for Brianna.  I was rousted awake this morning at 5:40 by doors opening in the hall. I figured it was Delaney waking herself up to go potty or something. I walked out into the hall to find two bright eyed and bushy tailed children, fully dressed and […]

Our Visit to Historic Camden

I took the girls to the “festivities” at the Historic Camden Revolutionary War site for the Battle of Camden Remembrance Day (actual battle was August 16, 1780). Brianna didn’t want to go at first – “Why can’t I stay home with Daddy?!” But, once we got there, she had a great time looking at all […]

School starts soon

School starts back next Monday for Brianna, so starting this morning we’re doing our modified wake-up routine. I know it won’t go smoothly this week, but my main goal is to keep the girls from sleeping in late and trying to get them back to going to bed at a decent hour since 6:30 is […]

Trying to Get Back in the Groove

After WAY too long of doing NOTHING, I’m trying to get back in some sort or “working out” groove. I’ve been taking the dog for a walk (about a mile and a half) 5 out of the last 6 nights. The girls have gone with me all but last night. Brianna rides her bike and […]

The Girls Singing Happy Birthday to Grandpa

Here are two videos of the girls singing Happy Birthday to my dad.    

Random Stuff

I have several things to catch up on. Delaney’s refused having the potty seat sitting on the “big potty”, preferring to balance herself on the big seat by herself. She’s also has been trying to go potty by herself the past couple of days. We also had a poop in the potty again yesterday! (Unfortunately […]

They're Sharing a Room Now

I’ve had a very productive day today.  Brianna and Delaney are now in the same room, per Brianna’s repeated requests since before Delaney was even born.  Delaney’s crib was moved into Brianna’s room and converted to a toddler bed. All toys (almost all toys anyway) were moved into Delaney’s old room and reorganized.  Everything looks […]

Spring Break is Over

Well, Spring Break is over, and things are on their way back to normal here in the house.  JR is sleeping (worked last night), Brianna is at school, Shiner is napping behind the couch, and Delaney is trying her best to build something to climb up to get Brianna’s Nintendo DS off the mantel.  She […]
