Where to start?

Well , I think that we have almost finished with refinancing our house - which will save us about $100 a month. There were some misunderstandings along the way but it all worked out. The mortgage company we work with is great.

We have decided that I will go back to work, it is financially necessary, and with the help of some great family and friends I believe I will have minimal child care costs.

I had to explain this to the people that I babysit for and it was a hard thing to do. I feel terrible for them because I have been in the exact position before as well. They were all very understanding however.

"L" is sick again. Terrible croupy? cough and stuffy nose with a mild fever.

I spoke with a preschool that is opening this fall and they are willing to take both "K" and "Q" but now I am not sure I can pull it off if I am working.

I now use Facebook, however I only use it about 20 minutes or so a day, so that is not the reason I have not been blogging.

My kids get cuter every single day and are always saying things that crack me up. Tonight "K" is watching Madagascar and she likes it cause of the hungry, hungry hippo. I think its funny.

"Q" has a new favorite sentence: " No Momma"
Unfortunately I think it is funny. Although I hear it a lot. And I think it is more the way he says it that I think is cute. He says a lot of big sentences now, he just told me that "It is dark outside, I need go to bed". He has a good vocabulary now, and astounds me everyday with what he knows.

"L" had a program at school on Friday and it was super cute. We got to learn about rocks.

well that is all I can think of for now.

All things do work out.
I still laugh when you
said to one time that
you go to work to relax !
they say that being a stay
at home mom is the hardest
job ever, but I have to wonder
how hard it will be to leave
the babies. Lucky granny (me)

going back to work? wow. thats great. in some ways, not in others of course! I understand about telling the people you babysit for, I have been telling them when I have to stop watching their kids since I am having a baby. some try to make me feel bad, like I have to find someone else? well.. yes... its sad, but you gotta do what you gotta do. dont let anyone make you feel bad about what you do. especially if you know it will help your family! Anyway, good luck with everything!
