I have two things I wanted to ask you all about. One is about Nate, the other about Christmas.
Nate: I have a motherhood dilemma on my hands. I have turned on Jack’s Big Music Show at 9am for months now. We play on the floor and the show is on playing music and we go on about stacking blocks. Now he isn’t playing. He is watching now, playing on and off and glued to the TV. It’s 20 minutes and it’s on Noggin, do I turn it off or shake it off? I know the rule is no TV until 2 but seriously?
Mike/Christmas: My dear husband has requested the most boring things for himself and left me room for some surprises. When someone asks for something do you automatically get it for them or get what you want? I mean this stuff is lame-o and we can afford for him to get this stuff any day of the week so why for Christmas? I have a feeling he just doesn’t want to do the shopping for his own things so if they are gifts I do the shopping?
A very sad update on the bedroom makeover. Since our dog required a blood transfusion, an emergency surgery and 3 days in the doggy hospital this is in a holding pattern for now. We are live within our means people and this took a considerable chunk of money. Right now we think we may go in stages. Bed first, then dressers, nightstands, etc. Spread it out a bit while we put back the money we used on the dog. I will be sure to keep you posted as we move forward. Saving your pets life is always the most important but damnit, I was really excited for our bedroom.
