  1. We discovered this book when our oldest DS was 7, and needing waterproof pads changed on his bed at least 2x/night, often 3 (we layer-caked the pads between extra sets of fitted sheets, btw, just to save our sanity in the middle of the night). I'd never heard heard that constipation could be the root of it (especially since DS seemed to have the opposite problem) but the book was an eye-opener and a game-changer. We followed the "clean-out" protocol it recommends (and continued for many months... I think we tapered down to one clean-out per week by the sixth month). But we continued becaus
  2. C-Rods. And base-10 blocks. Hands-down the big winner around here. They go into my "If all you could teach from had to fit in a backpack" backpack.
  3. My wild yeast isn't yeasting. Pizza nite is in coming up fast, folks. We Need Yeast. Also my stimulus money isn't....stimming? "According to information that we have on file, we cannot determine your eligibility for a payment at this time." We are indeed eligible. We haven't been using Direct Deposit in recent years so I really wanted to get set up for it and was supposed to be able to do that starting today. Pooh. I think it's time for a glass of whine wine.
  4. laptop is dyyyyyyyinggggggggg and the cord is in dh's meeeeeeetiiiinnnnnggg........
  5. My lefty has the prettiest cursive in the family. So there's that. Maybe Isaac Oliver? But still coming back to Isaac James. It fits with your classic sibling names. I love it. DO IT.
  6. Ditto on Isaac James. Tell No One that Every One Else disagrees.
  7. Yay! Congrats! Buy Awex a puppy. Names: First thought was Isaac Alexander, but that could be a little family redundancy. So.... Isaac Nathaniel Isaac Eliot Isaac Benjamin Isaac Dorian Isaac Theodore Isaac Jude And while I'm leaning toward not-two-syllables, there's... Isaac Colton
  8. He is Risen! We've had a lovely, sunny, Easter Sunday so far. Online service this morning, followed by cooking up a storm for me. Everything came together ingredient-wise for beef bourguignon, a dijon salad with apples and Swiss crisps, and the last of last fall's butternut squashes, roasted. Dh made strawberry shortcake for dessert. We won't eat until later this evening, though, as Dh's family is having a giant zoom session get-together first. Oh! and the kids had their backyard hunt, and Dd9 is utterly dumfounded by the brilliant technology that has brought forth her incredible P
  9. Dh is working from home, which has been stressful (the Not Enough Space kind of stressful, the Naked Kid Crashing your Zoom Party kind of stressful, the Feeling Like You Aren't Getting Anything Done kind of stressful). But the flexibility has been nice, so we've been hiking every afternoon that the weather allows. I am trying not to stress about how our house isn't going to sell so we aren't going to be buying our dream home and the single solitary reason for it is this stupid virus. But it's hard to not think about when there is nothing.else.to.do. In happier news, Me and my IRL
  10. LOTR is the best. Kids re-enacted it while we were on a hike yesterday (it was a very Shire-y sort of hike, except one part that was deemed Mordor. And the parking lot.)
