What a week.
First off: Squirrels
So many squirrels. If I hated them when they were just chucking acorns down from their perch in the Oak tree, I *really* hate them when they are scratching around in my ceiling and sitting on my coffee maker. Did you catch that? One got INTO our living space!
Now, I wasn’t home when this happened. I was at Target with Yogi Dad- doing our bi-weekly grocery shopping when I get a call from my Mom who was watching the boys. Squirrel! Running around the house, There was some screaming and some OMG whatdoIdoooooooo?
You lock the kids in a bedroom, let the cat* corral our little rodent visitor into the laundry room and wait for the Handy Landlord to come over is what you do. It’s times like these when I am so happy to be a renter. I get to call someone else to deal with this kind of stuff. Stuff like sealing up entry points and pulling nests out of soffits.
Of course less than 24 hours later we had another one scratching around above the kitchen. It must be time to find a winter home.
Which brings me to apples. (Don’t worry how I got there)
Apples. Whole ones. My boys are enamored with eating them in this form. Two at a time mostly. That’s like 6 apples going at once. That is a lot of apples. I don’t know if the budget can keep up with so much apple consumption! Cut-up apples simply will not do. They are eating everything- even the core, so weird!
But, they are helping to keep everyone quite regular, which after the summer of awesomeness (no Miralax!) I am glad to have continue.
Which brings me to diapers. (It’s obvious how I got here)
I want to know what you are using. Cloth? Disposables? A little of both? I put a handy dandy poll over on my sidebar and I’ve had 3 measly clicks in a week. I know I have a lot of cloth diapering mamas reading here. So, click on that poll, let me know where you are on the diapering scale. If you use cloth, leave me a comment and tell me what your absolute favorite diaper is and why. Because I love fluff and I’ve got a little something brewing that I need a little input on 😉
My week wasn’t all bad- it started off with a Fondant tasting and some twin talk hosted by Beki over at Beki Cook’s Cakes. If you are in the Twin Cities you should check her out- she does cake decorating parties and classes. You too can master the art of the Cupcake Swirl!
Have a great weekend everyone!
*Audrey is gaining back some of her awesome points after that one. Stanley was of course barking his head off in the bedroom and Henry was nowhere to be found.
