last day of Sept.

Saturday, September 30th, 2006

While Tabitha was at hula this morning, Chris and I took Daisy to Henry’s for a bit of shopping. She was not a happy camper and even a stop at Jamba Juice failed to turn her around. After class we were headed to Target, but Daisy actually fell asleep so we just came home for […]

take it on the chin

Friday, September 29th, 2006

We just ordered a doorway chin up bar, care to guess who will be using it? That would be Miss Daisy. Insane, I know. But the kid holds onto the table edge, takes her feet off the ground and swings, while squealing “schwiiiiiing!” oh so merrily. I have got to get her into My Gym, […]

new table and look at that face

Friday, September 29th, 2006

I often tape a large piece of paper on the table so Daisy can color at will, we just leave the crayons out for her. But I decided to cover the entire table to make it even more mess free. For now I used three large pieces of paper, but we’re going to look into […]

in the swing of things

Thursday, September 28th, 2006

It’s like we never left, life is just going on as usual. We pulled out the Halloween decorations last night and put up just about everything. We still need to get the village out and I think we should purchase a few new decorations as we’ve determined what we have is kind of pathetic. But […]

Home again

Tuesday, September 26th, 2006

Well, we’ve returned from our 10 day trip to Walt Disney World. I’ll go back and unlock the passworded posts, but for those of you who couldn’t access them, you didn’t miss much. I didn’t write nearly as much as I thought I would. I need to spend some time typing up summeries of our […]

rise and :yawn:

Friday, September 22nd, 2006

Daisy is now waking up when Chris’s alarm goes off so that’s a glorious 5:30am. Yee-haw. We gotta get her out of our room and fast! She basically sleeps through the night with only an ocassional waking once a week or so. That’s what we were waiting for in order to move her into Tabitha’s […]


Wednesday, September 20th, 2006

I forgot to mention that I bought my first Halloween decoration of the season a couple weeks ago. It was actually in the dollar aisle of Target but it just spoke to me so I brought it home and put it up even though it’s not even Oct. yet. It’s a bell that looks like […]

The great wide open sky

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

The flights went as well as could be expected. Just as once occured 6 years ago, a flight attendant spoke in an inappropriate manner to a baby thinking that would make the child sit where they had no intention of sitting and stop screaming. Also, as happened 6 years ago, a screaming child was calmed […]

We’re not in SoCal anymore

Monday, September 18th, 2006

My initial goal was to type everyday even if I didn’t connect to the internet, but this is the first time I’ve actually gotten the chance. I’ve been walking around with a running commentary in my head but the minute I sit down at the computer it’s gone in a flash.
Things we forgot:

The carryon […]

Playhouse Disney

Monday, September 18th, 2006

The new Handy Manny show just makes me think of Dora the Explorer growing up and having a baby with Bob the Builder as the father. Is that wrong of me?
And what’s with all the new snippets of adults trying to be the next big thing in kid’s music? Choo-choo Soul was bad enough, but […]

house work

Sunday, September 17th, 2006

I’m not fond of doing housework on weekends when Chris is home. I prefer we go out and have fun. But I have to admit, if we’re home anyway and do the work, it looks so nice and will be a joy to wake up to on Monday morning. Usually, come Monday, the house is […]


Friday, September 15th, 2006

Leave it to my baby to make me cry the day before we leave. Right now I have the Disney World planning DVD playing in the living room for the girls while I work on packing. Daisy has now asked me to go in her stroller because she wants me to take her there right […]

mental block

Thursday, September 14th, 2006

I’m having a bit of a mental block regarding our vacation. I can picture us in Disney World, I can picture us on the plane, I can even picture Daisy asleep on my lap, I can picture landing, finding our bus and checking in. What I cannot picture is me finishing packing and walking down […]

the day

Tuesday, September 12th, 2006

Today is all akilter because we took Chris to work this morning and then went to Kindermusik. Daisy has aged into the next class but she’s the youngest one there. She had a good time spending a good portion of the time doing free form Daisy dance in the way only she can do. It’s […]


Monday, September 11th, 2006

I don’t like to complain about a specific thing about my kids, but I must give you a glimpse into what makes Tabitha, Tabitha. Just for background, the child does not clean up toys. She would rather do anything other than clean up toys, though she’s better if someone works with her.
Okay, today, she […]

Home time

Saturday, September 9th, 2006

The Anc Fam stayed close to home for the most part today. No hula for Tabi today so we had a relaxing morning. After everyone was dressed for the day we walked over to our local swapmeet. I had my house key copied onto a Disney key.

Daisy got a spiky, soft rubber, ball type thing […]

You Tube with a View

Wednesday, September 6th, 2006

I hadn’t realized yesterday was Rosie’s first day on The View. I’ve never cared for that show because I don’t like Meredith Viera or Star Jones. With them gone and Rosie aboard I thought I’d give it a try. But I missed it. Thanks to the wonderfulness of You Tube I was able to watch […]

rotten to the core

Wednesday, September 6th, 2006

Well that was a rotten morning. Neither kid was doing what I needed them to do and both of them were whining. The big one got something in her eye and in her haste to get into the bathroom with me so we could wash it, she knocked the little one against a wall. So […]

long weekend

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

Our weekend was a bust. We had plans, did our plans, and they stunk. Except yesterday, that is. Yesterday we went to Disneyland and had a fabulous day. But the previous two days were worthless. Leave it to Disney to be our shining day
But it was back to the usual today with Chris […]

just to avoid walking

Friday, September 1st, 2006

We had an errand to run yesterday morning so we dropped Chris off at work and took the car. Then I decided that it was going to be far too hot today to consider walking for violin so we decided to take Chris to work again this morning. I wish I had just done the […]
