Ten Thought Tuesday: October 29th Edition

ttt

  1. Tomorrow, I’m going to the Children’s hospital to see the pediatric allergist with Little Dude.  Finally!
  2. I’m hoping that the appointment will bring more answers than questions.
  3. November is coming fast and right now, two novel ideas are bouncing about in my head.  I need to choose SOON.
  4. November 1st is also the date at which I’m posting my post on toys.  I’ve received two awesome submissions so far, but I would love to get more.  For more details, check out this post.
  5. My attempt at making my son’s costume was a major fail, I’ll have to find something to do with his clothes for Halloween.
  6. I really need to write back to the two wonderful bloggers who sent me postcards about a month ago…
  7. …I also need to post their wonderful postcards on my blog.
  8. The little guy has started jumping.  Yes, jumping as in feet off the ground.  He has also taken a few steps on his own, but only when he thinks we’re not looking.
  9. I have no idea what we’re eating tonight given that I forgot to thaw the meat we needed…
  10. Just played bananagrams with a couple of students.  I absolutely love it because it resembles Scrabble, but it doesn’t take forever to play.

That’s it for today.  Look for an update post in the next days following our appointment with the allergist.

Ten Thought Tuesday: September 17th Edition

  1. I’ve decided that I wasn’t going to be pumping anymore.  I realized yesterday that it was something that was really stressing me out and it usually took about three 20 minute sessions to get enough milk for one bottle so.  I’ll still be breastfeeding when I’m home with Little Dude, but otherwise, he’ll be getting formula.
  2. I’m still trying to figure out a way to integrate blogging into my working mom routine.  I’m happy with the two stable posts I manage doing per week, but I need to find a way to read and comment on my favorite blogs.
  3. I think Charles may have fifth disease.  It was running in the in-home daycare he attends and he was the only one who hadn’t caught it yet.  Yesterday, he spat up after each feed and last night was pretty bad sleep-wise.
  4. On Sunday, we’re going to Little Dude’s first swimming class.  He’s in the “little splashers” group!
  5. Fall seems to be well and truly here.  I really need to get the little man some long sleeved onesies/shirts and perhaps a coat.
  6. I would really start to feature some guest bloggers on my blog, I’ll be dedicating a post on this soon!
  7. We are really enjoying the Sandra Boynton board books at home.  I bought them after Jocelyn from The Home Tome mentioned them a few months back and I am not disappointed.
  8. Does anyone know of a class of FSL (French as a second language) that would be interested in exchanging letters/postcards with a group of ESL (Enslish as a second language) teens with learning difficulties?  I was thinking the FSL students could write in French and my ESL students could reply in English!
  9. I am part of the Group Postcard Exchange that Valerie has organized through her blog.  If anyone is interested in swapping postcards with me, you can shoot me an email at mommytrainingwheels (at) gmail (dot) com.
  10. I’m tutoring tonight and am sooo tired.  I have no idea how I’m going to manage to stay awake.  Wish me luck!
