1. I finally got a hair cut. Last one was in July, it was definitely time. I fit into my pre-pregnancy skinny jeans too today, I'm calling that a double win.
2. Its the night that St. Nicholas comes!!!! So we have been reading his story to prepare and now we have the shoes all lined up...in the fireplace as per request of Benjamin.
3. Benjamin swallowed a nickel on Wednesday, and its already through to the intestines, but to which one we don't know, and when it will come out is all a waiting game. Why he swallowed it? He claims he was hiding the coin from his brother.
4. To go with my allergy kids, apparently Helena didn't want to miss out on the action. She reacted badly to a cooked carrot with a light soy based sauce on it. Ezcema/ instant blotchiness. She was not amused to say the least and now we will be entering the soy free journey. Any tips for good soy free products are appreciated, its hidden in a lot of things.
5. Some friends came over today and her daughter said it was the best day, and all they did was make one huge lego mess in our basement with my boy cohorts. So I guess Elizabeth Foss is right, messes are blessings.
6. I'm beta reading Emmy's sequel to her debut novel. You can check out the debut novel on amazon here. It might make a good electronic stocking stuffer.
7. We made a sidecar full crib for Helena and it just seems like its the change we needed. Sleep is better and worries are less. I no longer feel like the girl in this video as much...
