Things You Need To Know

Ok, that may or may not be an exaggeration. This may just be some randomness, which is always fun, yes?

We've been hanging out at home the past few days because it has been raining. Actually yesterday we didn't even leave the house. You ever do that?

I've decided to rid Lincoln of the pacifier. I honestly don't mind them and I let the my babes use them if they want because frankly, I have bigger fish to fry. But he's waking in the middle of the night and crying cause he can't find it.

Have I ever mentioned how I feel about sleep?

I almost love it more than Target. Almost.

So something needs to change. Lincoln and I could use a good nights sleep without frantic searches for the pacifier. He can't be tired, the boy has things to do.

I have taken them from him during the day and only allowed them in his crib, I call this Stage One. He is doing pretty well, however when he see's them in his crib he let's out a sigh of relief that the neighbors might even be able to hear. Or he may just be excited because I decided to put all the pacifiers we own in his crib in hopes that he will find one on his own in the middle of the night.

It's like Pacifier Palooza in there. Don't judge me.

Stage Two will be cutting the tip of the pacifier. That's what we did with Ella before her first set of twin sisters were due and it worked like a charm.

When I'm not consumed with Project Pacifier, the girls and I have been doing some arts and crafts to pass time on the rainy days. We've been painting pictures and painting nails.

Man, I love a good manicure. From a 3yr old. Who has yet to conquer the skill of keeping the polish off your skin and on your nails.

Ah, memories :). Good ones.

Oh! I've decided to make our own hand soap. I don't even know who I am anymore. I'll let you know how that all goes. 

Hope you're having a great week!

Look forward to hearing about the homemade hand soap. Do you make your laundry soap? I can't imagine how much money we have saved the past year or two since making our own.

Keep up the good work! You are an AWESOME Mama.

I'm laying on the couch feeling exhausted due to poor health thinking I might need a pacifier then comes Kate's dose of humor. I feel better now. You're just too cool Kate. Thank you.

Love your blog!! My friend tied her daughter's pacifier to the hall closet doorknob with a short ribbon. She had to stand there if she wanted to suck on it. After 3 or 4 days she was no longer interested in losing out on playing because she was standing in the hall!! Pretty creative, I thought!

Thanks :). Such a great idea! We may have to try that!
