Can I just ask, why me?

This has not been a good year for pets.  Our dwarf hamster of 3 1/2 years died back in November of old age.  Our gerbil had a stroke at the beginning of the year.  (How do I know such a little creature had a stroke?  I actually took her to the vet to try to save her.  Yes, I took our gerbil to the vet.)

Ergobaby Baby Carrier

Did you read my post awhile back about dangerous vs safe baby carriers?  I have found a wonderful safe carrier that I am loving!  Christiano is getting heavy enough that the ring sling pulls on my back and shoulders now.  He is 14 months old and 27 lbs but still wants to be carried a lot.  Plus there’s those moments that he doesn’t want to stay right with us when we’re walking.  It’s a lot easier on my back to have him in a carrier so I have my other 2 hands free to hold Kat and Alyce’s hands also.  Without the carrier Jordan is being put in charge of one other child so that I can keep my hands on 2 of them. 

The Real Housewives of New Jersey – Season 1

TRHWNJ Those of you who have been here awhile know that we don’t have cable.  Sometimes I hate my whole “the kids watch too much TV as it is” stance because I miss out on a lot of popular shows. The Real Housewives of New Jersey being one that I’ve caught bits and pieces of online and really wanted to watch. I got the Season 1 DVDs the other day, popped it in, low and behold, my husband had unhooked the DVD player from the surround sound so he could play the Wii off of it.  Saturday I beg him, hook it up.  Sunday – hook it up please.  Monday morning he finally did.  Monday night I had a Housewives marathon.  I watched the first DVD and half of the second.  Last night I finished the other 1/2 of the second and the third.

Bad Mommy Award

Before I tell you about how I deserve the Bad Mommy Award, I’ll show you some pictures from yesterday’s soccer game, where Kat made another goal!  YAY!  I’m so proud of her.  She’s getting better season by season and it’s fun to watch her progress.  She’s on her third season now.  Pato was in charge of the camera because I was testing out a new baby carrier that I got to review.  Review coming soon! :)
