  1. So, this week has been brutal. I’ve had two nine hour shifts with 4 babies who were all screamers. They’re all very sweet, but they all set each other off, and there just aren’t enough of us to give them everything they want. Baby M wants to be held all the time. Baby J is fine with playing, but gets frustrated easily and when he gets mad he goes from zero to 120 right away. Little baby L is only 2 months old, and can be excused for being alarmed at all the crying. Worst of all is baby K. This baby was born with skeletal deformities, which are being treated and are much relieved, but he has terrible exzema, so he’s always uncomfortable. And he has reflux problems too! He’s the real challenge. Both my long days this week he was miserable and crying all day, no matter what we tried to do. But today... today I came in and he was happy! He was content to be held! He still strongly objected to having his diaper changed, but he didn’t have the high pitched shriek of the previous two days. It was so wonderful! I know that next week may be back to shrieking, but it was so lovely to see him smiling and laughing
  2. @Glitterwolf I saw an awesome pupper today! He’s a one eyed boxer. He’s a box-ARRRR!!!
  3. Do baby humans count? Here’s mine, definitely NOT TIRED And 30 seconds later... Nope. Not tired at all.
  4. I watched my husband play. He did both endings. He usually does. They’re all so destructively selfish it’s funny.
  5. You know, my favorite thing about Mortal Kombat is how everyone works together to stab each other in the back and bring about the worst possible ending. It’s really deeply impressive how stupid they all are
  6. @Sirithiliel I’m sorry to hear about you gecko friend About the only thing I’ve ever agreed with in parenting book was that kids grow healthiest when their parents demonstrate a healthy, loving, stable bond. It rough watching that sort thing Thank you for that! You can get a poster of his map for $25 too! My mom was really excited to see that article.
  7. I’m going to have to budget and see if I can get these. I need them!
  8. I Like fashion dolls, like Barbie and monster high dolls (rip). I have way too many of the former.
  9. I took Sephy to a wetlands trail park today and showed her what dandelion seeds do. She was absolutely enchanted, and then kept trying to give me the seeds Thankfully she was only a little cranky after her vaccines. She’s been in a sweet mood most of the day.
  10. I liked the remake. I loved that it brought his family back into it, rather than them just vanishing. I like them both.
  11. Started watching What we do in the Shadows yesterday. I love how utterly uncool the vampires are.
  12. I dunno. He had his uses. I mean, without him, she wouldn’t have had her daughter, and without their daughter Arwen wouldn’t have been born. So, sperm donor at least The toy is creepier. Wtf toy companies!!!
  13. I actually have two and a half Bob Ross pop vinyls. I have the one above, the one with Hoot (owl, obviously), and a bobble head Deadpool Ross, which I figure only counts as half. I’d like to have the Steve Irwin with the turtle, but that’s stupid expensive. Same with the Mister Rogers with the king puppet.
  14. Just so. Very few people do not drain me, my husband is one of them. I’m hoping my daughter turns into one of them, but right now she’s like a psychic vampire.
  15. I got my Mister Rogers pop the other day. And here’s my set of the Modern Saints of Kindness
  16. Take them off. Our rugrat still crawls around and puts everything in her mouth. Of course, we did that anyway before we had a rugrat. Do you put on a cardigan too?
  17. After some thought, I decided not to pledge at all. The cost is too high, particularly since I’m barely painting right now. And the Sarah & Jareth dance figure is pretty boring. That made it easier.
  18. New thread needs to have a picture of Sephy... Watching Daddy play a new game.
  19. Fiddle, so I can get that solid gold fiddle the devil has... Whatever part of it my baby is not screaming at me in.
  20. I’ve been taking Sephy to the park in the mornings, so she can practice walking in shoes. She’s so cute, walking around, talking to people, yelling at things. Today there was another baby there, a boy a bit older than her, and she went right up to him and gave him a hug. My baby is gonna kill me with this cute nonsense.
  21. Not much really. I had already been staying home a lot before, my only reasons to go out were for shopping. Which I still need to do anyway. And, honestly, this area never really shut down. Sure, all the restaurants stopped doing dine in, but most of them switched to pick up or delivery if they didn’t have a drive through. (They have drive through liquor stores here, wild.) And even though a lot of folks wear masks, almost no one adheres to the 6 foot rule.
  22. One of These Days(tm) I’ll get to paint. Maybe. A little time to relax and do something for myself. Ha.
  23. Yes, if by “no one” you mean several babies. I do really good silly dances
