I will not drink that, Sam I Am!

My last KTIP observation is O-V-E-R. Thank goodness gracious. I have had the busiest past 72 hours that I've had in a looooong time. This particular observation involved being video taped, so you can imagine how much fun that was. And now I have to watch the video and "reflect" on my performance - which I'm sure was award winning with me telling kids to change their color every .2 seconds. Ick. I'm doing a Dr. Seuss unit since it is Read Across America week. Above is the banner I made that hangs as you enter the kindergarten hallway. Below is our bulletin board that I painted. The kids decorated mini Seuss hats that I will hang on it.
In other news, Baby B is fighting a nasty, snotty cold. He is nursing better, which is a HUGE blessing since I thought I was actually going to have to start going to the gym again, heaven forbid. Nothing like that Nursing Diet, I tell you.

He's also suddenly very mobile. He doesn't want to be held. And if you are holding him, he's trying to find a way to wriggle out of your arms. He inches his way across the floor and thinks that me smelling his feet and then letting out a high pitched "Peeee-eeeeeew" is hilarious. The blowing raspberries phase has ceased, and he's expanded his vocabulary to include "Da da da da da da da" which he repeats and sings for us frequently. Oh, I could just gobble those sweet cheeks up. Love him.

I also must confess what I did to extend the life of our milk this weekend. If you're a new reader, then all you need to know is that my husband, B, drinks milk with fervor. As in we go through 3-4 gallons weekly. Anyway, I purchased a half gallon of milk on sale this weekend for 89 cents. It was called Sweet Acidopholus, or something fancy like that. I tasted it and it tasted like normal milk, so I told B he had to drink it before he opened the other gallon. (I try my best to implement milk rules at our house, usually to no avail.) Not surprisingly he refused. So, I did what any clever wife would do, and topped off the normal milk with the sale milk. And he drank it up without noticing a difference. He he he... After he reads this (hi B!), I'm sure he'll say he knew all along :)

And, lastly, I must concur with my friend Rachie in saying that the ending to The Bachelor was TERRIBLE last night. And, please, Jason, why don't you cry for the camera one more time? I really liked him, but I lost all respect after what happened ON CAMERA last night. I will be tuned in to the After the Final Rose Part II tonight to see what has happened in the past six weeks though.

Off to watch The City! Have a terrific Tuesday :)
PS. Thank you, Amy, for pointing out my BaBBing Abby mistake. I totally caught it as soon as I'd published the pics. Oops!

Must be something about men, my husband can drink a gallon of milk in two days flat. I have given up on trying to ration it out. Love the banner you made...too cute!
