The blahhhhhhh's seem to of left me. Man, for 2 days I didn't know whether to scream or cry. I hate that feeling. This morning I felt alot better. Been catching up on my sleep. I have to tell you how I have been able to sleep. One day Rebecca and I were talking about dream catchers. She saked me do dream catchers catch dreams? I wasn't exactly sure, but I had an idea. I told her, well yes they catch the bad dreams so you can't see them in your dreams and wake up scared. She said, mommy maybe I should have a dream catcher to catch the bad dreams so I won't wake up at night. Hmmmmm, got me to thinking, I wonder if that would really work. So the next day I was on a hunt for something to make a dream catcher with, but instead I found one already made at our dollar store, for $1.00. Here it is:
Well, I put it alongside Rebecca's bed hanging off her bookshelf. Each night after she says her prayers, she touches the dream catcher also and says, Bad Dreams Go Away, Good Dreams Come And Stay. I love you Dream Catcher, and she blows it a kiss. Well, this 1.00 gadget is a miracle worker. I have slept all through the night for a few nights now, without Rebecca waking me up. Jims happy cause he gets to sleep too, lol.
Today Rebecca is at her big sister's house. She's going to have dinner over there, and Emma or Dan will bring her home. But could I escape that house without kids or just one kid? Nope couldn't, lol. There's a certain lil man, who sticks to his Mommom like glue, packed his own diaper bag and said come on mommom lets go, lol. In the diaper bag was a cup, bottle of water, toys and 1 diaper. Emma repacked it, lol. So Daniel and I went to Kmart. Got Rebecca a really nice Disney Princess bookbag for school. 19.99 but 50% off, so I paid 10.00 for it. Also got her scissors, glue, crayons, pencils, ruler, folder for homework, pencil box.
Then Daniel and I went to the grocery store for dinner. We're having salisbury steaks with gravy, macaronni and cheese, salad and garlic bread. All Daniel's favorites. And of course while at the grocery store we had to get his favorite snack. Cheese doodles and apple juice. This kid loves them. He calls them cheesy poofs, lol. Here's my lil man enjoying a snack.
See the little cars? Yep, got them at Kmart today, 50 cents each for matchbox cars. Daniel loves them. Daniel got a present from mommy and daddy last night. It's time the PT aka potty training starts. So, they wanted to find him something he wouldn't be afraid of using. So they found this potty that looks like a toilet, has a handle and it talks when you go potty in it. Daniel loves it. He hasn't gone in it yet, but he likes sitting on it.
Isn't it cute? It also came with 2 other things. An award certificate that he'll get after he completes potty training, and a chart with stickers for each day he uses potty, a sticker will be put on.
I think he will do well with using the potty once he is use to it. Well, I have pics of a bathtub for the new baby, but I am putting them in prego journal. Man I would love a tub for myself like the one Emma was given for the baby, lol. I'd better go. Hope everyone is doing well. Are you ready for the heat again, it's coming. My air is on right now. 82 and humid outside. Tomorrow, 90's.
Love to you all..............................CINDY
