Thank you to everyone for the nice birthday wishes. I love when each new one comes in
The girls and I did go to Disneyland this morning. Man was that a mistake! It was so hot and so crowded and really not what you’d call a good time. I did spend some of […]
Looks like a beautiful day for a birthday
So, Sunday was all I could hope for to kick off the old birthday celebration. My mom ordered Pick-Up Stix and brought it over. Man, was that some good food. I had the Mongolian Tofu, Chris had Kung Pao Tofu and the kids had Lemon Tofu which Chris and I sampled and agreed it was […]
Um, my birthday’s tomorrow. Thanks for the wishes from those of you who left them, but stop trying to age me faster, lol.
Today I’m 31, tomorrow I’m 32.
And before my smart-aleck sister leaves a comment, that’s not old!
I’ve put up some pics for May 2006. The link is in the column to the right.
A friend mentioned not seeing a picture on this page. There is one on the upper right hand corner above the calendar that I change periodically. Right now it is of Tabitha holding Daisy. Does anyone else not […]
My main domain (tarazandra.com) expires today and all the other domains are hooked onto it. I’m in the process of transferring to a new company and it hasn’t gone through yet. So there’s a good chance my site will cease to exist for a few days. It will come back so just check when you […]
Tabitha is more or less healthy again and even Daisy seems way better despite her cold not breaking out until Thursday night. We did cancel a play date for today, but I probably didn’t need to afterall. It works out though because Tabitha’s friend has been battling her own illness so we’ll all just get […]
We have 100%, absolutely, cannot cancel plans tonight.
Both kids are sick.
I must say, if every episode of American Idol was anywhere near as entertaining as tonight’s episode, I would gladly make it “must see tv” every week and I’d certainly enjoy it a heck of a lot more. The Puck vs. Pickler stuff was pretty stupid, but even that was at least kind of funny. […]
Susan asked in a comment if I have an archive of all the pics I’ve posted. I do not. I always name the photo the same thing and just save over the old one. I would like to maybe put up a monthly photo gallery, especially since I’m not maintaining separate kid sites right now, […]
The last two days I’ve dusted off the Sims again. Tabitha just loves watching me play and asking questions. She designed a house on paper and then I built it for her and let her furnish and decorate it. After a while she even played by herself while I did something else. Even after all […]
Yesterday we headed out to a local Radio Disney event after hula. It was just in a parking lot, which I didn’t expect, but Tabitha had fun. She got her face painted and took Daisy into her first bounce house. Basically the baby just sat there with a gigantic smile on her face while Tabitha […]
Well, Survivor is all done so no show tonight. Maybe we’ll finally catch up on “My Name is Earl” which have been piling up on the old Tivo. I’m fairly happy with who won Survivor last Sunday. This was only the third season we’ve watched and I’m understanding the strategy behind the game more and […]
Two hundred bucks for the privledge of doing laundry. Sheesh. Not what I thought it would be but at least I no longer have to do a load of laundry every day (do to lack of line drying space)! That novelty wore off around day 3 two weeks ago. I much prefer to get it […]
I had a perfectly lovely Mother’s Day today. It started off with a scavenger hunt completely staged by Miss Tabitha. My first clue led me to my breakfast which she cooked for me- scrambled eggs, toast and Diet Coke. It was even placed at the computer for me so I could read email and blogs […]
So I finally found a positive side to disposable diapers. You see, our dryer isn’t scheduled to be fixed until Wednesday and cloth diapers line-dried are less than soft on the old baby bum. Therefore, Daisy has been wearing disposable diapers for the last two weeks. Today we were walking and I had her in […]
Ah, a morning without clouds. It’s been a beautiful day since we woke up, both Tabi and Wee Miss played in the back yard in their PJs for about an hour. It’s still not 100% cleaned-up and Daisy really wanted to go into the Cozy Coupe but I had to redirect her much to her […]
Daisy is currently lying in her bed and every half minute, she starts clapping and cheering. I must admit to more than a healthy dose of curiosity of just what the heck is going on in there. At least she won’t come out nude since she has a romper on and hasn’t figured out leg […]
Start with two kids in a back yard
Add equal parts dirt
Fold them both into a tub of water
Have them mix it thoroughly while adding lots of giggles
Whisk them away in warm towels
Soften liberally with frou-frou lotion
Wrap in PJs
Tuck into Bed
That’s the recipe for a great evening
Daisy watched Tabitha take a sweatshirt off today and now the kid won’t keep her shirt on. Right now she is in her bed supposed to be napping, instead she has taken off her shirt and is working on putting it back on. Good thing I really like one-piece rompers
Chris took Tabitha to hula this morning and took Daisy with him because I had a lot to do and knew I could get it done much quicker without the little one afoot. We debated what to do once they returned home and opted to put Daisy down for her nap and get some work […]
Miss Daisy has reached the age of 15 months as of Thursday the fourth. People are always telling me how much she talks, but much of it is still so much jabbering. She really does seem to have the motor mouth tendency, whether or not we can understand her is completely beside the point. She […]
Me: Tabitha, are those new capris or older ones?
Tabitha: I don’t know.
Tabitha: I think they’re middle aged, not new but not old.
Me: laughing hysterically on the inside
We didn’t really do much yesterday; kids got up, our day began, Daisy napped, Tabitha and I did lessons, Daisy awoke and we ran errands. We needed to get a couple things at Target and on the way there Tabitha asked if we could also go to Toys R Us so we stopped in there […]
Last night after it became too dark to stay outside, though we didn’t bother turning on the sun lights, we realized the kids were in some serious need of being hosed down. We hadn’t cleaned up the toys yet so they were pretty filthy. Chris stayed out and cleaned the toys while I showered down […]
Today was the kind of day I like, it just all went smooth and was relaxing and well, just a nice day. We started off the day with Kindermusik for Daisy and I, though Tabitha has to go with us now since Chris works on Mondays again. She just sat in the entry way […]
I had two comments with questions that I forgot to answer:
“BTW, I was at Children’s Place today and saw a little shirt that had a sort of patchwork daisy design and said “Daisy Girl” in embroidered script. But I’ll bet she’s got that one already.”
And the answer is yes, we do already have it. […]
