Ten Thought Tuesday


  1. Today, my son has officially survived his 11 first months of life.
  2. I was so excited yesterday when I received the email confirming that I was accepted into the Top Mommy Blog directory.  There are so many great blogs there.
  3. The little guy gets so excited when he plays with crayons at daycare.  When he realized that he was coloring his page yesterday, he let out a war cry and was so pleased with himself.
  4. I have a cold…and it sucks…
  5. In light of Valerie’s recent posts on weaning, I’ve started thinking about how and when to start my own weaning process with Little Dude.
  6. Now that I think about it, I would really love a guest post on weaning for Write for me Wednesdays.
  7. I finally managed to finish Splinter Cell: Blacklist, on to Red Dead Redemption.
  8. Halloween is coming up and I still don’t know what I’m dressing up as.
  9. Next week we are finally going to our appointment with the pediatric allergist for my son’s food allergies.
  10. I really need to finish the custom MOC LEGO post office for my partner; he’s participating in an exposition in a month.

Ten Thought Tuesday: Septembre 24th edition


  1. The baby nasal aspirator I bought yesterday claims that it is “efficient, quick, fun and hygienic”.  I’m not sure I agree with the “fun” part (nor does my son, for that matter) or with the “quick” part, for that matter.
  2. We went to Little Dude’s first swimming lesson on Sunday.  He was so funny because he hardly interacted at all, he was just observing everything.
  3. I’ve just come back from buying a Fall/Spring coat for Charles.  Right now, it goes down to his knees.  I’m hoping it’ll be still big enough for him when Spring comes ’round.
  4. I really need to try this recipe one of these days.  Believe it or not, it’s a main course.  Of course, I’d follow it up with this, which is – you guessed it! – a dessert!
  5. I brought Little Dude to the dentist with me the other day.  He was fascinated with all of the sights and sounds and gladly let the dentist put a gloved finger in his mouth once I was finished.
  6. Speaking of dentists and teeth, his last two incisors cut a couple of days ago.
  7. I’m finding it really hard to keep up with all of the posts of the blogs I follow.  I try to read them all, but I just don’t have the time to comment on all of them 😦
  8. I’m starting to get the hand of Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
  9. Looking forward to my next opportunity to participate in a Bzzz campaign.  I didn’t respond quickly enough last time one was sent out.
  10. I can’t believe how time flies.  September is almost over, Charles is now 10 months old and we’re (finally!) nearing the appointment with the allergist.
