< Upheaval: Tidbits

There are hundreds of bloggable moments throughout my week, but when I actually sit down here to blog, and not work on grant applications or website template design, I can think of nothing.

Korenna is smiling. She is a doll. I know I must be biased, but she really is sweet and flirty and girlie, and I am just eating it up. I bought her a huge stretchy headband for all of her bows. Never did I think that would be me, the mom with the big bow-ed baby, but it is fun! The Bumbo chair is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but I never thought sliced bread was all that great, so how about "The Bumbo chair is the greatest thing since Jelly Bellies." Anyway, it is wunnerful, and my gummy grinning girl will agree!

Dillon is such a big boy. He spent the night with his cousins last night. Complete with pallet on the floor, tent pitched in the living room, and Alvin and the Chipmunks playing well past bedtime. I kissed him when we were leaving and he said, "Bye Mama! Be a good boy, k? I see you in da mornin'!" Aw... my heart is still melted!

All the prayers must be working. We have had a couple of interested people contact us to help with funding for the school. But, please don't stop offering your prayers, cause we are no where near being done!

We are working on a website and a brochure for the school. Seems like there is a lot going on right now.

19 days of school left, and only about 10 IEP meetings. (Sarcasm! Ten is A LOT!) For those of you not familiar with special ed, that is the huge team meeting of everyone involved in each child's education - parents, therapists, teachers, administrators, etc. We plan for next year, and each meeting requires lots of organization and forethought. And I have to dress up on those days. Sheesh.

Other than that, life is just rocking along. I miss blogging and reading your blogs. That is why I gave Dillon a huge bowl of cheetoes and put Korenna down for a nap. I am ignoring Daniel's barrage of questions and I am pretending that I don't have dinner to cook. Just so I can post something, and read something. I would like for things to settle down, but then, life might be boring, right?

I never did get the Bumbo for my girls even though I thought about it for more than 3 seconds.

Very proud of Dillon and his big adventure camp in!

Just wait till you can give Dillon AND Korenna Cheetos to preoccupy them. Heaven.

Where did you find the Bumbo chair? How much are they? I could read the website, but it is much easier to ask you. You're the 2nd parent to recommend this chair, and I want one for Caleb!

we borrowed it from a friend, but i think they have them at Target. it is great, especially at this age. Korenna loves to sit up and look around. she hangs out on the counter while i am cooking, on the desk by the computer while i am working, in the bathroom while i am getting ready... wonderful!

You've got all sorts of craziness in your life right now. And 10 ARDS! OMG! I guess that's what happnes when you go on maternity leave but they dont pay you so you cant do ARD meetings. Grrr! The politics... ugh... dont miss that a bit! Just thought I'd comment, so you'd know I still check in on you. I always look forward to your blog... that's how I keep up with your crazy life, in the midst of my own. :)

I love the Bumbo. I will really have to agree that it is the best thing ever!

And so happy to hear that things seem to start rolling along with the funding for your school.
