I just don't get it!

Last night was pretty rough. Cameron woke himself up coughing and eventually threw up all over the bed. For the rest of the night he just kept coughing and whining. It so difficult to get him to take any kind of medicine. After an hour of on and off trying I finally got him to take something and he went to sleep for a good 3 hours and was back to coughing and whining again. Now he is sleeping and I am not looking forward to waking him so we can take the older 2 to school.

Today was a planned day for me to watch Big Boy and his sister so we informed them about Cameron and the mom didn't even bat an eye. I remember being in a work situation where my boss said I had to come to work or I would be fired so maybe that's the case with her. I just don't get it, why are employers like that? Why would she want her kids to be around another sick child? I hope her kids don't get sick!

To top my day off our washer was leaking and it now needs to be replaced. We can't run the washer because the floor needs to dry out and then my husband needs to assess the damage. Ugghh I don't want to use disposable diapers and I have bedding that needs washing. I have not ever used a laundromat and I can't say I would even wash my cloth diapers in them. Hopefully my mom comes to the rescue and I can wash over at her house.

I was looking forward to going to Old Navy to use my 30% off friends and family coupon! Looks like I will need to fit it into our weekend schedule.

Happy St. Patrick's Day


Here is the dress I made a few days ago. She loves it! She came home from school saying the girls gave it 2 thumbs up, they were even looking for the tag wanting to know where she got it from.

The kids are enjoying the leprechaun pranks, I'm still waiting for someone to see the green toilet water heehee!

Target Deal

Currently Target has a coupon here for $5 off a $30 CIRCO kid's apparel purchase and all this week CIRCO kid's clothing is on sale for $3 each. I picked up some really cute boy's 5T shirts and shorts for Cameron and some cute 12M tops for Macy. They also have dresses and matching shirt/pant setsm for $6. This is a great deal considering boys are so hard on clothes in the Spring and Summer months.

I have been so busy with the kids lately. It's been a great weightloss plan, not that I recommend going out and having 4 kids, 3 of which are 2 yrs apart but they keep you moving especially when it's nice out.

I have been slowly working on easter baskets. I have 2 of the 4 liners complete. I need to get more elastic to finish the others. I thought it would be cute to make the boy's capes so I did that and finished them up this afternoon during nap.
I also made Macy this dress. I love the elephant fabric

I went to ShopRite early Sunday morning. Spent $46, I think our new weekly grocery goal will be $75 or $300/month. We have been eating off of our stock of meat and pantry items. I mainly went to get snacks and breakfast items like oatmeal and granola bars.

This evening I have to figure out how to stamp the kids hand with a green clover without them waking up. My mom did this when I was growing up, she told us a leprechaun came and kissed us to give us good luck. I flaked and forgot to look for a clover stamp, so I am going to attempt to draw a 4 leaf clover on their hands. I also need to put together pots of gold to place by their beds and hide gold coins for them to find.
Whew so much to do and so little time.
