That's great of your BIL and his friends to do that fundraiser event

They look funny in their outfits - I hope they had fun!

Sorry you are not sleeping more

I am going to sleep like a rock tonight I hope

I have been working on the house since I woke up

I just had to stop to eat something because I hadn't yet today and I was getting shaking and frantic

So I went through the girls bedroom and the room where their desks and art supplies are, as well as my deak

3 bags of trash later .. they are clean and organized

I cleaned the bathroom

Tidied the living room/dining room

And vacuumed the house

And did the dishwasher shuffle

It is 2:15 and I haven't even cleaned anything yet (aside from the bathroom)

It was just picking up, sorting through piles of junk the girls created, and straightening things back up

SIGH

I really still need to dust, mop, and really wipe things down ... but I have very little time left before work and I am pretty exhausted

Plus I haven't spent any time with the girls

Joe went with my Dad to help him this morning and just got back

And the girls were with my Mom for the morning but came back at noon

And they are slowing starting to unravel my work and I am going a bit nutty, lol

I do feel a thousand times better now that I have eaten

I think I will shower and spent some time with the girls

And hope the house is still picked up enough to clean the floors and dust/wipe everything down tomorrow

LOL

Sorry about Ben's foot

Joe puzzles me

I wouldn't hesitate to take one of my kids in to be seen if they had an injury I questioned

I would hate to have to fight for that

I know it costs money out of pocket

But you need your foot your whole life

And if it is injured and doesn't heal correctly that could be a problem as he grows - no?

Hopefully your parents are able to take look and give you some advice!

the BOB looks like a super nice stroller

and it's a real jogging stroller (the city mini really isn't a jogger)

but it's bigger, heavier, costs more, and the fold is bigger

"in terms of colors I always think, will I use it again for another child?"

well, I think we are done so color isn't a big concern

but neither of us has done anything permanent to ensure that

and last time we came home from Florida and I found out I was pregnant with Violet :smileywink:

"also, you're renting a citimini double for WDW--it that what they call the one they rent?
since it's a double, is it for V & B & you won't take a stroller?
or for A & B & your taking this stroller for V?
i'm confused?"

I want to buy a new single stroller for Violet eventually anyway

and this one folds smaller/should be easier to push--I think I can store it in the van under her seat right behind the driver's seat

so I will bring that on the trip to have to use the rest of the time

(if I buy it!--I may just end up bringing the one I have)

either way, I'm planning to rent the double for WDW (not from them but from the other company that delivers it to your hotel)

I mentioned to Joe about renting a double and he was fine with the $31/day for the WDW double--but then I won't have it for around the hotel, busses, etc, ONLY in the parks

I think the rest of the trip Benjamin will be fine with walking or he could ride and Violet could be in the sling but WDW is harder and I want a double for there

and I'm thinking it'll be easier to rent than to buy and have to deal with the double on the rest of the trip

and the double would be mostly for B & V though A could possibly ride if she got really worn out and I'd carry V in the sling and Joe would push the stroller :smileywink:
