Update, eggnog, and other randomness

Here Matthew is calling his dad to rat his mama out for not
carrying him around all day.

Our "wave your hands in the air like you just don't care" program has worked wonderfully as now Matthew seems to be raising his arms a lot more...even waving bye-bye. He especially likes to lift his arms when he is trying to get you to to do one of the following: 1. if you are holding him while sitting and he wants you to stand or 2. if you are holding him while standing and he wants you to start walking. He does not like to stay still at all, and sometimes I wonder if his busyness has anything to do with his inability to sleep during the night. I know his busyness has a lot to do with my inability to sleep at night!

I think I found the problem behind his smelly room....let's just say we've moved up to JUMBO diapers. JUMBO?! Yes, it says "jumbo" right on the package! That sounds so harsh....kind of like the HUSKY description in kids' clothing. I think SUPERSIZED sounds much it a positive spin! And who doesn't want to be described with the word "super"??? Unless I guess someone called you SUPER ANNOYING, or SUPER LAME, or SUPER BAD DRESSER...

Egg Nog is back for the holidays!!!!!!!!! So yesterday in one aisle at Target there was egg nog....and in a nearby aisle was all the Halloween candy 50% off!!! (That was my Thanks-for-the-Day yesterday, but I didn't have time to post). It's great when the retail industry celebrates all the holidays at once so that you feel like you are celebrating non-stop from October to January! It's a big fiesta for a quarter of the year!

Our Thanks-for-the-Day
Gift cards! Isn't it great to get gift cards out of the blue? We received 2 last week. Whenever I'm shopping with a gift card, I feel like I'm really rich...and I'll say things like "Girl, go ahead and buy the Bounty papertowels instead of the generic ones because you've got free money!!"

Fun post! I love giftcards too.
