Kitchen marauding

Here's some of what's happening:

  • Baby T helped herself so generously to a new package of straws (she stuck a dozen in her water cup) that I've found a new location to keep the straws.
  • Baby T is really savvy about my kitchen stepladder.  She picks it up, takes it to the pantry, and has started helping herself.  She has a very good idea of what are the most promising targets in the pantry--her attacks are very focused.
  • Baby T also likes having several sippies on the table during meals and snacks.
  • I bought some Cadillac pullups (64 cents each), in the hope that they will do the job better.  We've had SO much laundry the last couple days, so it seemed like it was time to move on from the standard pullups and try the ones specifically sold for nighttime use for bigger kids.  There is a dark side to all those fruits and veggies Baby T has been enjoying.
  • C has been home from school the last several days.  She has had an infection and is on antibiotics but is on the mend.
  • C, Baby T and I went to the grocery store today.  It wore C out, but she's done very well with walking hand-in-hand with Baby T at the store.
  • C has about $180 (I think) in credit earned toward her next ukulele.  At current rates of progress, she's within 1-3 months of being able to get a very fine new ukulele.  
  • D took his simple machine project to school today. 
  • Baby T has been enjoying watching Star Trek with my husband and the big kids.  
  • Less than 2.5 weeks of school left!
