Routine or not?

Ok, since this is the second time I'm writing this, it probably won't be quite as in depth :) So since September has come and gone and October is on the way out - I don't think that I'm gonna have this routine thing down pat. Oh we do have somewhat of a routine to the kids day, but around here we have to be flexible - as in, one phone call and we have to leave for a one day trip out of town :) This week I am getting two more daycare kids - so I am going to have to step it up with my day management! So I do the things up town, like grocery shopping, on my 'free' mornings (cuz we all know how happy kids are shopping just before bed time). Laundry and such chores will have to be done when the kids are here so as not to take up the 'free' mornings :) I think it will be good though, the kids are very much the same age as my two!

On another note, Thanksgiving meal was great at our house! I made my very own first Thanksgiving dinner all by myself and it turned out great!! Well I did have to make a few calls to my mom for a few opinions - and Michelle helped out in some prep work and such - but regardless, I was farely proud of myself :) There was very many of us eating but I did send a bunch of food along with a friend of my hubby's for a few bach-ing guys.
So my two wonderful kids, whom I dearly love - and are so sweet and cute - also have a lot of their own personality and bossy-ness. My son (2.5yrs) is always telling my daughter (1yr) what to do and taking stuff away and sometimes being just mean (regardless of my teachings!!) and today he finally got what was coming to him - K bit TJ!!! yeah, like hard (but not bleeding). Although I in NO way want to encourage a biter, it was like finally TJ got some back of what he was giving out. It was hard not to smile a little - sometimes they need to learn a lesson from someone their own size I suppose :) Anyway here are a few pics of my wonderful loving cuties :)

Your kids are beautiful!! Way to go Ellen for making Thanksgiving supper! I don't think that I've cooked a big bird yet. Once a little utility chicken and I did do all the fixings! I don't know if that counts though.
So you are going to have a little daycare in your home? Sounds like fun!

A daycare too? Oh ... we should exchange email addresses and offer each other ideas and support offline ... and often!!

Your children are absolutely beautiful. It's their electric eyes, they are like an angel's.

Thank you so much for the comforting and really nice words you left on my "rant" post. Truly. They made me feel really uplifted afterwards.

As for the home party ... I am still in. Now that things are starting to slow down for me, I have more time to think outside of the box.
