You have eight children in the house (not counting the baby), they are all begging for food and pretending that starvation is imminent. What do you feed them for a snack? I opted for popcorn. I made two batches in our popcorn maker (similar to this one) -- one with butter and one with sugar. Happy children all around.
Why had I acquired extra children? Or did you not notice in the previous quick take that there were 3 unaccounted for kids? Well, extra children arrived yesterday afternoon, because my friend was headed to the hospital to act as a doula for another friend. I haven't heard yet about a new baby arrival, but I'm praying that all went well.
UPDATE: A new baby boy for my friend. Deo gratias!
I have greatly enjoyed reading the discussion on pants in the Blogosphere. Sometimes I wear pants. Sometimes I wear skirts. I have a few friends who only wear skirts. I knew a few women in Fairbanks, Alaska who only wore skirts (or wore skirts on top of their pants). No one has yet shunned me for my lascivious pants-wearing, but now, after this discussion on the broader internets, my husband has derived a lot of pleasure from saying, "Woman. Cover yourself and stop tempting me with those pants!"
We've almost finished our third week of school. Unsurprisingly, I suppose, all my planning has actually helped us manage our days better. Also unsurprising -- my staying off the computer helps the day run more smoothly. But it does cut down on my goofing off/blogging time. Hmph.
Does anyone have any brilliant ideas for breakfast? I'm tired of eggs. I'm tired of cereal. I'm tired of oatmeal and I'm tired of pancakes/waffles. I'm also just plain tired in the morning.
This guy has a lot to do with my sleepiness.
He's two months old now and weighs almost 14 lbs. If he continues on this growth pattern and doesn't drop off sharply like his closest two siblings did, he'll weigh as much as my two year old in no time.
