Swim Lessons

Looking a little nervous
before the first class
Holding on
to Mama
Like I mentioned in my Thursday Thoughts post last week, Fynn started swim lessons a few weeks ago. I wasn't sure what to think the first day of lessons. I mean, she is just 10 months old. I know that she loves the bathtub and splashes around in there. She has no fear about getting her face wet... but that didn't mean she'd enjoy being in a pool, or learning to "swim"

The first day she was really uncertain. She clung to me in the water and didn't seem to know what to do. She didn't really like it when I "helped" her jump in the pool. Or when I made her splash. By the end of it though, she was smiling and splashing her hands around. 
Exploring
the water

Since then, she's gotten more and more comfortable. Now she splashes right from the beginning and leans away from me to try to do things on her own. She loves when we sing songs together and when she jumps into the pools. She did, however, get a mouthful of water last week. I thought she was just looking at the water really closely... but nope, she was drinking it. My bad. She really enjoys watching the other kids in the pool, and I'm just glad she's getting comfortable in the water. I plan on spending a lot of time at the beach, in the pool, and at the lake this summer, so I want her to feel comfortable in it.

Thursday Thoughts- Cell pix edition


Boo loves boxes... and this one was just the right size for her. We put her in this and pushed her around the kitchen for about half an hour... way better then any expensive baby toy we could ever buy.


My in-laws recently got a bunch of trees cut down at their house. This tractor was sitting there for awhile, and each time we were over there I begged Drew to take my picture on it, but he kept saying no because he didn't know when the workers would be back... finally he gave in and I got my picture taken :) 







After Fynn's first swim lesson a couple of weeks ago, we headed to the mall to get some last minute Mother's day gifts. While we were there we saw the carousel and just had to put Fynn on it. She loved riding the horse for the first couple of times around... and then she was over it and squirmed into my arms for the rest of the ride. I, on the other hand, ended up super dizzy. Weird since I've always loved spinning rides. 




We went to Drew's cousin's wedding last weekend. Fynn did amazing! She is a little ham and was posing for pictures, clapping, and doing everything she could to look super cute and get attention. She was in a great mood and was so much fun. She ended up passing out in my mother-in-law's arms during the reception which was awesome because that meant we got to stay at the party until 9:30... she slept in bed with us at the hotel that night, got up at 3 and 5... but went back to bed until 7:30 which is huge for her. Of course, with all of us all dolled up and looking cute, this is the only picture I got... typical.



Tuesday night Drew and I were trying to stack wood outback. We plopped Fynn and Zoey both into the pack n play so we could work. It was great for awhile... then Fynn cornered Zoey and started screeching at her. Then she got really upset when we took Zoey out... so I had to stop stacking wood to take care of her... I was really bummed about that :)

Chocolate Granola

Drew and I have been obsessed lately with Bear Naked chocolate granola. It's delicious... but not exactly cheap. Drew decided to experiment in making our own chocolate granola... and it is delicious! 


Here's how:

Ingredients:
  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup chocolate liqueur
  • 8 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • a couple handfuls of mini chocolate chips (real specific, right?)
Directions: 


  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees (Fahrenheit... do ovens some place measure in Celsius? I never thought of it, but some places measure their outdoor temps in Celsius)
  • Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until well mixed, it will be sticky
  • Line a baking pan with one of those cool silicone baking sheets or waxed paper

  • Spread out the granola into a thin, even layer. At this point, Drew likes to add some more mini chocolate chips
  • Bake the granola for 30-40 minutes until it smells really strong. Check it often because the cocoa powder can burn easily. The first time we made it, I think we started to burn it. Some of it tasted a little burnt, but it was still really good. If you're not sure if it's done, pull it out and let it cool. If it's crispy when cool, then it's ready. If not, put it back in for a little bit longer

  • If you want, you can add dried fruit, nuts, more coconut... whatever you want! 
  • Eat. Try to stop yourself from eating it all in one setting... it's tough, trust me.

Top Ten Things my husband does that annoy me

We all have things about our significant others that bug use. I've decided to list my top ten... If Drew were to make a similar list about me, it would probably be his top 100:

1. Make way too much noise when the baby is sleeping- You would think he would learn, but no... whenever she is sleeping he makes a TON of noise. Now, before you lecture me about how she should have noise around the house when she's sleeping, let me clarify. First off, she doesn't have a door on her room. Which means there is no sound barrier when things are really loud. Second off, Drew is loud. Like not just the normal household noises. I mean the screaming because the Bruins just scored a goal or slamming things around just because. He's loud enough that when I'm upstairs sleeping it jerks me out of my sleep. Now just imagine being a tiny baby and hearing those noises. Oh yeah, without a bedroom door. 


2. Offer the baby things he can't give her right away- This too falls under the "you think he would learn" category. Alas, he doesn't get why asking her if she wants something to eat and THEN cooking it, doesn't quite work for her since she doesn't get the whole delayed gratification concept. Instead he offers and then she freaks out because he doesn't hand it over.  

3. Ask me twenty times "what's wrong". If I don't tell you the first time, it's for one of three reasons 1) There's nothing wrong 2) I don't feel like talking to you or 3)You're what's wrong and I don't want to get into a fight with you about it. Either way, I clearly don't want to tell you... so leave me alone!     

                              

                                                                                                       
4. He makes me finish a fight at that moment. I'm the type that needs to walk away from an argument to cool down and get my thoughts together. Drew sees that as trying to ignore the issue and hope it goes away. So when I tell him I need a minute and try to walk away... he follows me. Drives.Me.Bonkers

5. He somehow manages to pretend to sleep through Fynn's middle of the night wake ups. Now, I don't know how much of this is legit sleeping through it, and how much is that he just doesn't want to get up with her. Regardless, it's frustrating to be the one who usually gets up with her. 

6. Scrutinizes our bank account. I get it, I get it, he does all the bill paying and banking, so he needs to pay attention to this stuff. But it's rather frustrating to get asked "so what did you buy at Target for $57 last week?". It also makes it REALLY hard to surprise him with gifts as he always knows how much I spent at different places. To get around this I'll often get cash back at some place to make it look like I spent more there and then buy his actual gifts with cash so he has no idea what he's getting. Wow... that sounds pathetic 

7. Judges me when I'm lazy. I'm lazy, and I'm okay with that. But there are time when I just want to laze on the couch and watch tv or read a book without feeling guilty. But the look he gives me when he gets home on such days? So not worth it

8. Hogs the laptop. So what if I've got the iPad? Some things (like writing blog posts) are a billion times easier to do with a full keyboard than on the iPad... buy me a keyboard for the iPad (hint, hint, nudge, nudge) and I'll stop wanting it so much. 

9. Whines when he can't find his clothes. I wash, fold, and put away all the clothes in this household... so sue me if I can't always remember where a particular shirt of yours is at a given moment. Did you put it in the laundry basket? Have I done laundry since then? Did you check the dryer? Honestly, your guess about where it could be is as good as mine. 

10. Leaves the shower head up high so when I turn the shower on water sprays all over the back wall of the shower and onto the floor. This one was actually the inspiration for this post, as it drives me nuts that he does this. Doesn't he realize what a mess this makes?!?

Okay, all complaining aside, I love my husband and think he's an amazing guy and a wonderful father... now if he would just stop doing all the things that bug me, he would be perfect.

Hair Straightening Frizz Control

* This post is brought to you by www.keratincontrol.com. All ideas and opinions are my own

I hate frizzy hair. In the summer with the humidity and frequent beach/pool days, my hair tends to be a frizzy mess. Usually I just throw it up in a bun and pretend it's not too bad. I've played with a lot of "frizz control" and hair straightening products, but nothing has really helped some of the crazy fly-aways I tend to get. 

K+ Frizz control is a proven frizz control system that gives you sleek, smooth and manageable hair without all the chemicals found in a lot of other products. I didn't know this, but according to K+'s website, a lot of hair straightening products include formaldehyde, parabens and SLS (a chemical found in toilet cleaners, gross!). K+ Frizz Control Keratin Treatment doesn't have any of these products to give you the look you want without the risk of exposing yourself to all these chemicals. The treatment lasts for weeks and is easy to do at home and to maintain.

Best Summer memory as a kid?

My two next door neighbors, little sister and I started a "business" named M.A.K.A. (all of our first initials) we'd steal supplies from our parents and sell lemonade. We would do this a couple of times a week all summer long and end up making like 20 bucks for the whole summer... most of which came from our parents. That's right. Not only did they provide the materials for this business venture, they actually paid us for the product... we were some smooth operators.


Favorite summer drink?
If we're talking non-booze- DD Iced Tea... love this stuff year round, but I really enjoy them in the summers. It's an addiction really, I just can't get enough. If we're pulling out the booze then it's frozen strawberry margaritas. Yum... now I want one! They're my favorite drink anyways, but on a hot day they're just perfect.

Favorite Summer TV show?
{via}
{via}
Rookie Blue. I'm SOOOO glad it's back for a third season. Drew and I are obsessed with this show. I'm also a big fan of Big Brother. Something about a bunch of really stupid people locked in a house together doing really stupid things just calls to me. I can't help myself, I have to watch no matter how much of a train wreck it becomes. 


Best outdoor summer activity?
Laying in the sun, reading a good book, with nothing to do and no where to go. Especially when this is done on the boat. In the middle of the lake. 


Summer vacation essentials?
Since I'm so pale that I'm nearly albino, clearly sunblock is a must! Throw in a couple of good books, a cute bathing suit, and some lip gloss and I'm good to go. Oh, I guess this year when I think of summer vacation essentials I'm going to have to pack for Boo too... crap. Well, she pretty much needs the same things minus the lip gloss and adding in a cute hat to keep that almost-albino-nearly-bald-head of hers from burning.

Top Ten: Unexpected Baby Messes





This. All over your tub
10. Bath time. Supposed to be all squeaky clean and soapy right? Yeah, except for when your kid is covered from head to to in sweet potato. Then you have to bathe her. Wash out the baby tub. And then Drano the actual tub because the sweet potato squished all up in the drain. 











The calm before
the splash
9. Sippy cups. Sounds innocent, right? Aren't they specifically made to prevent messes? Yet somehow your kid will find a way to spill it everywhere. Whether it's tossing it on the floor and breaking the plastic or tearing the straw apart on the ones with a straw. 








8. Nursing. All mom's who have ever nursed feel me on this one. You think the messiest part will be the baby spitting up. Yeah, no... the messiest parts are the leaking and squirting (so sorry if that's TMI, but seriously, I had days when we were first establishing nursing where I would go through six shirts in a day)


Laundry baskets make
great baby jail
7. Laundry. Nope, not the dirty laundry. That's to be expected. It's when you spend an hour folding 5 loads of laundry just to have your baby crawl over and start whipping clothes around like it's a bachelor party. You have two options here; refold all of it (yeah right) or just leave it all on the floor (which actually makes picking out clothes easier for the next couple of days)








Yes, some of those
may be dog toys...
my kid's not picky
Nice neat pile of toys?
Don't mind if I do
6. The baby toys. We used to have a place for stuff... now it's just baby toys everywhere. The moment you put something away,  they pull out four more things. It's a futile effort that you find yourself fruitlessly attempting on a daily basis. 







Creepy hippo
Oh, the bath toys!
5. The bath tub. Yeah, I mentioned getting the tub full of partially eaten food. Even better though, is just trying to take a shower yourself. It used to be just you in there. Now it's you, a couple of toy boats and a creepy looking plastic hippo that may be staring at you the whole time.



4.  The dog food. Apparently when it's not looking delicious, it's looking perfect for throwing. There may have been days when the poor dog hasn't gotten to eat because we've had to put the bowl out of the baby's reach. 

3. The baby crap. Not just toys. It's the pack n' plays, jumpers, high chairs, etc. Got a nice big breezeway? Good. Cause you're going to need space for the carry pack and stroller. Why, you ask, is my stroller in the breezeway? Well, that would be because my little bitty will sometimes only nap if you push her around the kitchen for 10-20 minutes... and also because I'm deathly afraid of spiders getting on the stroller if we leave it in the garage. 


2. Papers. They don't sound like good baby toys, do they? Ahh, but you forget how much fun it is to tear up Mommy's important paper work. Like tests she's grading for her students. It's even more fun to gum on (and possibly eat part of) a save the date card. Or to drool on bills that are due. Just know that if you receive papers that are stained, torn, water damaged, or otherwise marred, that's just Fynn saying hello. And that your papers are yummy. 


This. Ends up everywhere.
1. The food. Yes, you expect it on your clothes, their clothes, their hair, the floor, the high chair and a myriad of other locations... but did you realize that it would end up in your hair? True story. No matter how well you clean up after baby meal time, there will be food that ends up in your hair. Or on your wall. Or on your shoe. Which was in another room. A room you're pretty sure the kid wasn't even in today... still not sure how that one happened.




So there you have it. 10 ways I never expected my kid to make a mess. Life is a constant balance of trying to keep the house kinda-sorta-maybe clean. But it makes for some great stories, and a lot of laughs.

Our first Citrus Lane Box

I signed up for Citrus Lane* back in March and was really bummed when I found out that we wouldn't get our first box until May. However, it was so worth the wait! 

We got the 11 month box for Fynn:
First Look: We were excited! 



 Green Toys Stacker ($14.99): I had never heard of this brand before, but when I went to their website I discovered that it's an eco-friendly brand and that this toy was made from 100% recycled plastic milk containers which is really cool. When I told Drew this, his first response was "I hope they washed those containers first". 


 Dapple Travel Size Dish Liquid ($2.12): This stuff is supposed to easily remove milk, formula and baby food from containers. This is perfect because we're going to a wedding this weekend, so this is the perfect size soap to throw into our bags. 

Ella's Kitchen Apple and Ginger Baby Cookies ($4.25): These are healthy(er) baby cookies. I thought they tasted great, but Fynn doesn't love them. Zoey likes them though. I put one on the ottoman while I picked Fynn up, Zoey snagged it as she ran by and scarfed it down. 

Bear Takes a Trip ($6.99): We love books, so this was 
perfect for us. It's a sturdy board book with bright colors. Fynn's already enjoying "reading" it.


 Deep Steep Lavender and Chamomile Moisture Stick ($5.95): This smells amazing and is supposed to be more moisturizing than lotion which is great because I get super dry skin and hate slathering on lotion all the time. I love how this is a lot cleaner than lotion.

I'm really happy with this months Citrus Lane* box. I only spent $11 on this months box (usually it's $21) and the items we got totaled $34.30. A good deal either way, but a really good deal when you have $10 off.

Thursday Thoughts

Thursday Thoughts

I'm linking up with Jennifer again for Thursday Thoughts:

  • I'm home today. After a L-O-N-G field trip with my class yesterday, I took a medical day today to make up for the fact that I had to go 10+ hours without nursing or pumping yesterday. Can you say ouch? Cause I did.
  • I also said ouch yesterday because I was stupid enough to think that climbing the Bunker Hill monument in Boston. All 294 steps of it. Brilliant move Amanda. I could barely move afterward, and my quads are killing me today.
Doesn't she looks so old?
  • Fynn suddenly seems so much older. Her face has thinned way out and she just looks like such a toddler now... she's not my bitty baby any more. It's both exciting, because she's growing and learning so much, and sad, because I miss my teeny tiny baby. 
  • How cute his Drew and his baby? I love watching the two of them together and seeing how much they love each other. Boo is obsessed with her Daddy and lights up when she sees him. I'm shocked that I'm not jealous, but their relationship just melts me so much that I can't do anything but love watching them together


  • There are 14 days left of school. 14. Where did this year go? I'm excited, because it means summer vacation will start and I get to spend a lot of time with Boo this summer... but it's also a little sad. I LOVE my class this year. Love them. They are bright, caring, and enthusiastic learners who I love working with every day... I'm really going to miss them. 
  • Fynn started swim lessons two weeks ago. Oh-my-the cuteness. It's so much fun being in the pool with her. I need to steal the pix off Drew's phone so I can do a post on it soon!

Celebstir

*This is a paid post brought to you by Celebstir.com. All ideas are my own.

When I was contacted about reviewing Celebstir.com, I was really intrigued. I had never heard of the site before, and was interested in learning more about it. Their site allows you to follow celebrities and up and coming talents. By being a part of their site you can learn about aspiring talent and/or develop your own following and "become known for what you do". It sounded interesting, so I headed over to check it out. 

Celebstir is gaining popularity as more and more people see it as a great way to upload their own content and gain fans. When I was playing around on the site I discovered that Maci Bookout (from Teen Mom) is on the site. I love her and Bentley (in fact, if we had had a boy, I wanted to name him Bentley). 

Another cool feature of the site is that it allows members to compete in different contests that are hosted by business. This both helps them gain fans   AND earn cash/prizes. For example, there is a contest going on right now where members are asked to upload a creative entry about bad customer service. It can be a vlog, video, parody, whatever you think of to show the theme. 

Celebstir is social media geared towards creating a following and fan base around your talent. Unlike other forms of social media, it really seems to focus on helping aspiring talents share what their doing and interact with members. 



Who are you, and what have you done with my husband?

Drew's been on a bit of a health kick lately. And by health kit I mean that he's making better food choices and not eating as much crap as we usually do. Most of his "diet" is just the common sense, more fruits and veggies, less sugar and carbs. He's doing great with it. In fact he's lost 5 pounds.

I, on the other hand, eat the same usual crap, and luckily haven't gained any weight. Yay for nursing which has allowed me to each way more then I ever should and actually not gain weight. 

That said, Drew's diet has me thinking I should probably be making some better choices since, you know, I won't be nursing forever and I feel like as soon as I stop, I'm going to blow up to epic proportions. 

I digress. This post wasn't supposed to be about my own food issues. Rather, I was intending to share a little anecdote from this weekend. I bought donuts this weekend. Cause, you know, they're awesome :) After eating one, he looked at me and said "you know, I'd really just rather have some yogurt right now"

my jaw may have hit the floor.

Why do I do this to myself?

My students and I are going on a field trip tomorrow. A big one. One that involves 4 hours of bus travel and a total of 10 1/2 hours with my kids. I'm actually looking forward to the trip. We've spent the last month studying in depth for this trip. It's the culmination of a LOT of work.

Today we had the "Mommy Mrs. M-" talk. The talk where I tell them that they are my babies, that I love them, and that I want them all to be safe and happy on this trip. I spent an hour going over all the safety precautions we have to take and what I expect of them. They we're great. Respectful, earnest, and full of curiosity.

Friday though, I wanted nothing to do with this trip. It's my own fault really.... You see, about a month ago my kids asked if they could make t-shirts for the trip. They wanted to get neon shirts and paint them. In theory it sounded like a great idea. Neon shirts would make it easy to find my 26 babies and 10 chaperones in the midst of a busy city. Yeah, except I probably should have left it at just getting shirts. Instead, I stupidly agreed to let them paint said shirts.

Thus, my Friday afternoon was spent with fabric paint all over my classroom. Kids with paint all over their hands. Kids fooling around in the bathroom when they went to wash their hands. Then, once the kids left, there was paint, shirts, and other random crap to clean up.

IT. WAS. A. MESS.

Why, oh why, do I do this to myself? 

Monday, May 20, 2013

Every now and then... I'd just like to be left alone

I'm needed. All day every day.

I teach all day long where I have 26 lovely cherubs all needing me to explain this, show them that, or repeat myself for the 593,234,231,442 time that day. I'm constantly flagged down by waving hands or calls of "Mrs. M-, can you look at this?"

Literally climbing all. over. me
Then I go home. Where I have the dog and the baby literally crawling at my heels from the second I get in the door. Zoey is just so excited to see me that she jumps on my legs and scrambles around my feet while I just try to get all Fynn and my stuff into the house without dropping any of it or her. 

Most nights Fynn just wants attention. Snuggles and nursing and entertainment. She's tired (because she hasn't figured out that napping at daycare makes all of our lives better) and a little cranky and just needs some Mommying.

And me? I just want a second to myself. I want to pee without little hands climbing up my leg. I want to sit on the couch without the constant "eh eh"of a baby or pawing of the dog who is feeling neglected. I want to feel like I only have to worry about myself for about .2 seconds. I want no one to need me for just a little bit.

1. What is your favorite kind of surprise?
{via}
One that I really wasn't expecting! I like fun little surprises that show someone was thinking about you. Like how Drew will randomly stop and get me a Dunkin Donuts iced tea when he's out somewhere because he knows it makes my day. 







2. Flowers or Chocolate?
I'm a fat kid, I'd much rather have chocolate. Flowers are pretty and all, but I kill them rather quickly. Chocolate tastes yummy.


3. What is your favorite summertime activity?
Napping/reading while laying in the sun. No where to go, nothing to do, no one needing my attention... some how I have a feeling those days are long gone now that we have Boo.


4. Do you have any vacations planned this Summer?
Just one. My in-laws rent a really nice house on the lake about an hour from our house every summer for the past couple of summers. We go the end of August and it is the perfect end to the summer. Rides on the boat, floating in the water, loving grandparents who love taking care of a baby while I laze around and work on my tan. Perfection... I can't wait! 

5. Favorite Summer Holiday?

Last summer at the lake
Testing out the water!
4th of July because I love fireworks and it's the day after Fynn's birthday, and Labor Day because it's a 4 day long weekend and for the last couple of years my birthday (September 3rd) has fallen on Labor Day weekend.



6. Dream Vacation?

Hot weather, warm pool, fruity girly drinks and nothing to do but lay around, soak in the sun and read good books.

Julep Maven May Box

I was lucky enough to win my choice of a Julep Maven box from Tarole at One Haole Girl. I chose to go with the It Girl box because I love fun nail colors that really pop.
First look
Love the cute packaging! 

My colors, don't they look fun! 

I love the colors that were in my box, it would have been $19.99 for the box had I paid for it myself, which isn't too bad, but it is more then I usually would pay for three bottle of nail polish. I probably wont subscribe for every month, but I might get a box or two here and there when I need some new color choices!

Weeds

I don't understand the whole concept of weeds. How are some plants classified as weeds while others are plants or flowers? 

Dandelions for instance. I think they're pretty. They're a fun, bright yellow that just screams summer to me... yet to many (Drew included) they are the bane of the summer months and significant effort is spent every spring/summer killing them off. WHY? Why waste the energy? Why can't we all just decide that dandelions are the new grass and let them be? The obsession with getting rid of them is a concept that eludes me.
{via}

I understand getting rid of plants (aka "weeds") that are killing other plants... but I don't see the harm in a bunch of dandelions in the yard. Maybe I'm missing something? Is there something about weeds that I just don't know about? Someone, please, enlighten me!

May Birchbox

I meant to cancel my Birchbox subscription after last month's let down... but then I forgot. Once I got my shipping notice I figured I might as well give it another try and see what this month had is store. I have to say, I was much happier with the products I got this month.





First look and subscription card


Tweezerman matchbook itty bitty files

I love this cute little box of tiny nail files. It's perfect to put in my desk at work. I also kept one out of the box and left it with Fynn's nail clippers because they are the perfect size files for her itty bitty nails. There were a TON of files in the box, so I feel like this is going to last me quite awhile. 

Beauty Protector Protect and Detangle Spray

This is the PERFECT product sample for me, I straighten at least part of my hair almost every day (I shower at night, so I usually straighten out funky bumps and waves in the morning before work). I love how this is an easy leave in conditioner that doubles as a heat protector. It smells great and makes my hair nice and soft. It says it's a great detangler, but my hair doesn't get all that tangly, so I don't know for sure about that one.  




Folle de Joie eau de parfume

No lie, when I first sprayed this, I thought they had put bug spray in by mistake. After I let it linger for a few minutes it smelled better, but I'm still not loving it.

COOLA Classic SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer

I love the scent of this. It's summery and beachy. It goes on smoothly and left my skin feeling soft. I really liked this and I love that it's a moisturizer and sunscreen in one as I often breakout from sunblock in the summer, but with my almost-albino skin I can't go out for more than 5 minutes in the summer without sunblock on. 

Sumita Color Contrast Eye Liner

I haven't actually used this yet, since I don't wear eyeliner much, but i tried the pencil on my hand just to see how it went on. It draws on really smoothly and leaves a clean, dark line that looks perfect. Next time I get all dolled up I am totally using this! 





Like I said, I liked this months items a LOT better than my last month's Birchbox, but it's not really worth it to me. Most of the items are cool, and fun to try... but not things I really need. You know? What about you? Are there subscription boxes out there that you love? What should I try?
