This Week’s Buzz: March 30th – April 5th

This Week is Every Week 

What a week. Big work deadlines. School fundraiser (PTO Fundraising Director here). Houseguests. Freezing. Husband traveling. And so much freaking laundry piled up in every basket and I have no clue what’s clean or dirty because I’m pretty sure (positive) that the baskets that were cleaned were never actually folded so I can’t fault the kids for just piling their dirty stuff right on top and so as I type this it’s Saturday morning and I am preparing to enter FULL ON LAUNDRAMAGEDDON. #Bringit

Of course, is next week any better? More work deadlines. Follow up from school fundraiser. Easter – which means baskets to fill and additional food to buy. Spring break looming. Probably still freezing. Which means the kids are still layering up and that means the laundry baskets are going to be overflowing once again.

I think everyone’s weeks are like this. Does anyone…

Potty Training is Not Easy…

I found potty training very challenging.  I tried to remember where my kids were developmentally but still I found my voice unrecognizable and said things that I hope my children were too young to remember.  Why is it so stressful?  Is it the mess factor?  Do we feel pressure from society to have our children trained at a certain age?  Is it just plain annoying to deal with a basic bodily function multiple times per day? Whatever it is, it can be difficult.  It requires patience and perseverance.  So get as much information as you can and then prepare for frustration. What can you do to make potty training easier?  Where do you begin and how do you hang in there?  What are some common challenges? Wait until  your child … [Read More...]

Not My First Rodeo My girls was home sick one day this week, after being up all night with the dreaded stomach bug. She fell asleep on the couch, sweet little lamb, all pjs and wrapped up in blankets, iPod in one hand and lovey in the other, which … [Read More...]
