Happy Valentines Day!!!


I started the day just like any hopeless romantic would, by going to an early Dr's appt.LOL Good news, I am beginning to dialate and the dr said he'd be surprised if I lasted through the weekend! I like to hear good news but I'm tempering what he said with reality, because I never go early. I do like to hear the word, "progress" though.lol

The littles are with my mom today. Isaac especially was very excited to spend some time out and about with my mom. Genevieve was in a stinky mood and I offered to keep her but mom didn't care about the current state of Evie's mind and took her anyway.LOL I'm sure they are having fun.

We all went to lunch and after Allison and I got home, we cleaned the torn apart house up and are now enjoying some time to ourselves. I may even nap.lol

I received my shipment of Sing, Spell, Read, and Write in the mail yesterday and it looks good. I think Evie will enjoy all the activities and games that this phonics program offers. I noticed that she was getting a little bored of the preschool stuff we had been doing and realized that she was ready for the next step. www.starfall.com is definitely what I need to thank the most for her steady progress. She loves that web-site and will play around with it most mornings. It has cemented the letters and even some of the sounds in the past few months and I was going to try my old standby 100 Easy Lessons but she is much more of a bells and whistles kind of child so I decided to try SSRW instead.

I was going to work on the remaining breakfast items today but I think I'm going to take the day off. I can always work on it tomorrow.lol

I can't wait to give the kids their valentines stuff! We are waiting for Daddy to be home first but it's killing me.LOLOL Eric and I tried hard to get the kids things that they would really appreciate instead of just the usual box of chocolates. For one, I didn't want Evie to have a bunch of unFeingold food and for another, the kids will like what we got so much better. I think I may even make a "from scratch" cake to celebrate.

Well, that's it. It's pretty quiet here right now and I'm going to take advantage of it.LOL

Blessings,

Lisa

We must be the only family in America that doesn't "do Valentines"...with our children. LOL I'll do better next year...maybe. LOL

Hi Lisa,
Each day I've been trying to catch up on someone else's blog and tonight I'm planning to see what you're up to! Glad to see the days are counting down! You'll probably have the baby before we get there! I wish we could come and see you, but I think you're just a little too far away from where we'll be to make it happen this time! I've sure enjoyed spending time with you the last 2 times we were in your neck of the woods.

Liz said...

no wedding pictures . . . not even cervix pictures . . . and now you are dissing chocolate too -- what is WRONG with you, girl??

Lisa in Jax said...

Thanks Yvonne! I'm getting a bit nervous now that I'm getting closer.lol

De'Etta,

We used to just do the Valentine exchanges with our park group or co-op but since we don't have either this year we bought them something.

Cynthia,

I'm hoping we have this baby soon! Maybe next year we'll be more mobile and be able to visit you if you go to Orlando. I really enjoyed spending time with you and your family too!

Liz,

LOL We did have chocolate, just the good kind instead of the kind that would torture us with Evie's "other side".LOL I already did the wedding photo thing in Oct and I'm too lazy to do it again.lol And I'll try to remember the camera for you next time I see the dr. I'm SURE that he wouldn't mind snapping a few pictures for you...lolol

Lisa--you are inspiring me to pull out my Sing, Spell, Read and WRite and start using it with my 4 1/2 year old. I think you must be the third person (online) and second person (in real life) to mention starfall.com. What a great resource!

Progress is good!

I forgot to do anything about Valentines this year. Thank goodness the kids didn't notice, I'll be better prepared next year.
