Thirteen Things Happening in Our Household This Week

  1. Projectile Vomit - Riley did his first projectile vomit on Sunday. Adam was mesmerised. Unfortunately, we were in a busy cafe at the time and felt the scorn of other patrons burning through our skulls as they sucked down their soft eggs.
  2. Sick - Consequently, Riley has been ill this week. More on that tomorrow.
  3. Keira's New Bike - is going great guns. She can make it move under her own propulsion now
  4. Keira's talking - a neighbour mentioned in passing she thought Keira has a little lisp. If she does, it would be from the thumb-sucking. What do you reckon, family? Next time you're here, listen carefully for me and tell me what you think.
  5. Picture Book Story Draft #2 - is complete and nearing as close as I think possible to being 'done'.
  6. Daylight savings - has ended, making the kids irritable with time readjustment. And mum and dad.
  7. Keira's faces - as per yesterday's photo, she's taken to mugging for the camera. We've got an actress on our hands.
  8. I'm getting Tummy Rolls - I need to start exercising again. Bad.
  9. Keira's preschool wrote - and set a date for her to start properly. Oxygen masks for mum on standby.
  10. Reading Anne of Green Gables - It's not on the 1001 Books challenge, but everybody's talking about it lately. While I've watched the 1980's mini-series a hundred times, I've never actually read the books - that's if you don't count me frantically thumbing through the latter ones in the desperate search to see Anne and Gilbert 'getting it on' because, yes, that's the kind of depraved person I am.
  11. Finished Nick Hornby's The Complete Polysyllabic Spree . Great food for thought on books and reading. I've taken notes and may, sometime this milennia, post them up.
  12. The Biggest Loser - thank God Bob and Jillian are back because the show undoubtedly has more pep when they're around. Who's going to win?
  13. Happy Birthday to my sister for Friday! Twenty- Six! Positively old!

Sounds like a wild week. Hope things are getting better for Riley.

Sorry about the sickness. Hope everyone is feeling good today. The lisp will go - don't worry. My daughter's daughter had a problem when she first started talking, but after a few years, it was gone. NOW, she's 17 and never stops talking!

Check out my TT

Another busy week for you, hey? Hope Riley feels better soon! And happy birthday to your sis! :)

I'm sorry you have projectile vomiting :-( Sick kids are so horrible, but I think vomiting is one of the worse sicknesses!! I hope everyone feels better, and no one else gets sick!!
I played too :-)

I have read every single anne book from pillar to post. Even the one when she is in her 40's and getting on a bit.
I like point 13.

Wow, busy Mom. Reading Anne of Green Gables...way cool! My TT is up, come by if you get a chance.

I would have lost it with number 1. At least you also have an actress to distract you. Hope Rile is feeling better.
