Ten Thought Tuesday: The Getting Better Edition


  1. Finally!  After ten days of the flu and its symptoms bringing me down, I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!
  2. The little guy is also back to his usual smiling and exploring self as has become apparent by the new bruises he is sporting on his legs today.  *Sigh* he really MUST climb on everything…
  3. I am super excited because this week, I’ll be reviewing a product I received and will be hosting a giveaway.  Woot!
  4. Just as Little Dude has grown out of his sleep sack, I found this awesome one via Etsy.  Can’t wait to give it a whirl!  It’s going to be in a very cute and bright dinosaur print.
  5. This Friday is going to be an awesome day.  First off, it’s my mom’s birthday.  Plus, I’ll be posting my group post on the best and worst teething toys and relief options.  If you would like to participate, just check out the end of this post and shoot me an email.
  6. Yesterday we had some pretty yummy cod fishcakes and today we are having pasta.  What are you eating for supper tonight?
  7. We’ve recently been watching Masterchef Jr. and I am impressed by how well those 8 to 13 year olds cook!
  8. I managed to finish Dan Brown’s Inferno this week and really liked it!
  9. Sadly, NaNoWriMo is a no-go.  With the flu that kicked into high gear at the beginning of November, I just didn’t have the energy to give it a go.  Amanda, from Writing in White was giving it a go too, though if you want to hop over her blog and encourage her!
  10. Our bath plug mysteriously disappeared a couple of days ago after my son decided to use the washroom as his playroom and the toilet (which had been left open by mistake) became his new favourite object…
Happy baby!
Happy baby!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Ten Thought Tuesday: The Recurring Theme Edition


  1. Yesterday, we had a family outing…at the medical clinic.  It turns out that my partner and I “just” have the flu, but the little guy has an ear infection, an eye infection and would have ended up with pneumonia in a few days.
  2. Of course, this means that he is on antibiotics.  So we “torture” him twice a day by shooting salt water up his nose and then using a pump thingy to get the snot out and by rubbing an antibiotic gel in his eyes.  The only thing he’ll take willingly, is the banana-flavoured antibiotic.
  3. On top of it all, I’m pretty sure that Little Dude’ left pre-molar is about to cut; he is slobbering like there’s no tomorrow, always has his finger on that side of his mouth, wants to nurse a lot (though, that’s probably due to his cold/infections) and is constantly clenching his teeth while nursing..
  4. On the good side of things, one awesome blogger has already sent me her Musts & Busts with regards to teething.  I would love to hear from other awesome bloggers to really build and interesting list.  The original post (including my email address) can be found here.
  5. Despite wanting to do NaNoWriMo, I have not written a word yet.  Not.  A.  Single.  Word.  The month of November has been much too crazy so far.
  6. I am still looking for some bloggers who would be willing to write a guest post for me.  You can check out this post for more details.
  7. On Friday, I am going to go buy some educational games with a co-worker for a lunchtime activity we’re planning on starting up.  Yay!
  8. I’m really looking forward to watching the first season of Dexter.  I’ve heard such great things about the series and my parents have lent us the first season.
  9. I recently started to play Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, but I’m not sure how I like it yet.  I personally wouldn’t have added an installment to the series, but hey, who can blame the company for wanting to make more money?
  10. Started reading Dan Brown’s Inferno yesterday.  I’m hooked!

Happy Tuesday (what’s left of it anyways)
