Stuff -n- things

What a week! I've had a cold, Kira has cellulitis in her foot, and Jackson woke up this morning throwing up. Good times.

It's actually been a pretty good week. Barbeque with friends on Monday. Tuesday I was sick and we had our unexpected dr's office visit. Wednesday the kids hit the Arboretum with my in-laws. (I was sick, so it was so nice to just be sick and not have to be sick/make lunch/wipe hineys/etc.) Thursday we went to the gym for play time and hit the Library.

Today, well I think it's time for a No TV Summer update:

Monday - none

Tuesday - we started watching Cars as our Family Movie Night selection, but abandoned it after about 30 minutes. We just weren't feeling it.

Wednesday - the kids watched one episode of Blue's Clues online.

Thursday - Family Movie Night - we watched Brother Bear. We've never seen it. I enjoyed it and was really glad that I actually watched it with the kids. Lots of questions from Jackson during the movie.

Friday - It's been an all day movie fest. Jackson threw up three times this morning, so I decided a chill out day was in order. He said, "Thanks for letting me have the day, Mom." If nothing else, he realizes that TV is a treat and not a need or a right.

So, back on the bandwagon tomorrow. I'm pretty happy with this week, though.

One more random thing. Check out this cute craft. She used baking molds to make car crayons. I'm totally doing this for gifts and party favors. In August, when the back to school sales start, you can get crayons for .25 per box, sometimes less. I always stock up for gifts and always end up opening up way too many new boxes for the kids throughout the year. As a result, we have tons and tons of broken crayons. I can't wait to try this!


  1. Hi Wendy,

    I didn't see an email address so I'm leaving a message here. You're more than welcome to link to the car crayon post. Feel free to use whatever pictures you like.

    have a great weekend


  2. Sorry about the rough time. Your daughter has cellulitis in her foot? I have it on my backside and thighs. : ) Not to make light of it but that's what it made me think of.

    Hope you all feel better soon!

  3. So sorry that it's been a tough week. Your TV watching things sounds great - I love that he realized it was a privilege sort of thing, what a little sweetheart.

    Those crayons? Super cute - I'm going to have to snag them as a party favor idea too!
