Been awhile since my last post

Adjusting to school schedule again, daily errands, work and a family visitor from NJ has been occupying much of my time so I have not been here.

Updates - Kids are adjusting to and enjoying school. We got Jake's pick up situation all figured out finally so I get to stop worrying about that for now. I had a conference with his teacher and went over my concerns and developed a plan of action with her that has been working thus far with different school issues. I am pleased to report that Jake is now spending half of his lunch time in the cafeteria which is a huge step for him given his sensory issues with the echoing in there. Nick loves math so far this year and has 100% on all tests and quizzes so far which he is very proud of as are we. Hopefully the gung-ho attitude will remain where school work is concerned!

Alex's birthday and party went great! He had a blast and got tons of great gifts. I do believe we now own every Diego toy on the market including the sneakers! :)

Matthew is doing great. He is trying to hold his bottle which is making me crazy trying to feed him these days! He knocks it all over the place and gets more of it all over him than in his mouth!

Tuesday is mine and Adam's 9 year wedding anniversary! Woo Hoo! To celebrate we leave Saturday morning at the crack of dawn to head up to Orlando. My sister and the kids will join us up there for a second night and we will all return Monday. We are considering renewing our wedding vows next year on our 10th anniversary. Been checking into it and I can not believe all of the ettiquette rules associated with vow renewal! I mean honestly, are people really going to be offended if my sister stands next to me since we are not supposed to have "witnesses" or need them since we are legally wed????? I want her there so what is the big deal? You should read some of these things! Here is a wedding ettiquette expert with points about renewal ettiquette:

  • Renewal Ettiquette

  • Check out the renewal forum there too! Ugh - I despise the woman already just by her rude answers....

    Anyway - less than 2 weeks until my dear friend Allison and I get our Moms Weekend Away!!! Free from kids and hubbys - we get to relax by the pool, hang out, shop and do a non-kid dinner! I can't wait!!! I NEED the break and I know she does too...

    Well now that everyone in the house is up I am off to make some breakfast for everyone. This week should be more calm and I will be back to posting regularly!
