You've probably already googled this yourself, but to get crayon out of carpet:

I've been realizing lately how much easier my toddler is when we turn the stupid TV off and go outside. So we've been spending a couple of hours outside every day (about an hour before nap and another hour afterward). And I say *we* because she's under two, so I'm not comfortable letting her play outside by herself yet. So I'm running around getting fresh air too, which I suppose is good for both of us. Only now that it's a habit, rainy days are the worst, and I don't know what we're going to do when it gets really cold. I have to come up with some sort of backup plan.

I was lazy and just plopped a plain ol' uncarved pumpkin on our front stoop. I know, no Holiday Decorating Awards for me. But I figure this way I won't care as much when the teenagers smash them in the street.


I just bought plastic pumpkins with bulbs in this year. Because last year we carved them too early and they rotted days before Halloween. The faces went black and melted and then the bugs moved in. Blerk.


My sitter's name Angelina Ballerina; she is a good sitter for a mouseling.We only let our kids watch one 20 minute show a day. When my husband was sick, I let them watch more so I could cook/clean uninterrupted. Then I had to wean both them and myself off of it; now we are back to 1 show after naptime. Otherwise the TV is never on.

I cannot carve pumpkins, I don't have the patience.
