Busy bees...

We've been busy, busy, busy around here this week. Monday Morgan was home with us. I worked for part of the day while Morgan and Owen did boy stuff. Then my mom and sis came for dinner. Morgan made a turkey and some fixings. It was a fun way to spend MLK day. Tuesday we went to my friend Lisa's house for the day. Lisa and I scrapped and watched inaugural stuff while the kids played. Another great day! I got a ton done on a project I'm working on. Can't share because it's a gift. But I will share after I give it away. Wednesday Owen played at open gym with a neighbor friend while I went to the doctor. Just a check-up and discussion of working on what I already know I need to work on! Then we had lunch with Mimi. And in the evening I had dinner with Dawn and Lisa. Which was super fun with the exception of the totally inappropriate PDA displayed by the over 45 couple seated by our table. (And I believe the man was married and NOT to this particular woman!) Today we went swimming with Lisa and her twins and another friend and her twins. Had lunch and then played at the indoor maze! More fun for Owen! He LOVES to play with friends!!

Other thoughts to share...

My sister is great. First, she babysits Owen and loves him tons. She also fixed my knitting project that I screwed up! Thanks sissy!!

Noelia joined FB and I'm super thrilled about that!

I walked on the treadmill two times this week!

We are throwing Nikki a baby shower next week. Should be fun! He little one is doing fabulously as a preemie. We are so happy for all of them!

The temperature is dipping again here. Not going to be as cold as before but still below zero. Tomorrow may be a movie and popcorn day!

Oh, and I'm reading a great book right now recommended by Liz and Lisa (two great moms!) titled NO! Why kids of all ages need to hear it and ways parents can say it by David Allen Walsh Phd. I find that I do things with Owen or for Owen that I would prefer not to. Like give in. Especially to avoid a fit or tantrum. And this needs to stop. So I'm reading this book. I also have another one about changing behavior in 5 days that I'm reading. By Kevin Lehman. I'm not far enough into that one yet but he's one of my favorite parenthood authors. He wrote a great book titled First Time Mom. It was one of the best books I read while I was pregnant and I often go back to advice in it.

Happy Friday everyone!

Seems like a fun and busy week!
I watched the inauguration too and was thinking of all my American friends :)
Yeah, FB is so much fun but kinda creepy too. I didn't know you could set levels of privacy because before that it was following my every move. I gotta learn about that a little more.

Good luck with your reading, hopefully those books give you ideas and suggestions on how to deal with lil O.

Sounds like you have been pretty busy. Lot's of food, friends and fun sounds like a great time if you ask me.

FYI: I say "NO" all the time, but my kids now just lol at me.

Sounds busy! Adding those books to my list. I'm trying to find good "mom" type books. :)
