Dog Poop Day

Belle woke me up this morning by throwing a bunch of stuffed animals in my bed then says "Mama, look at this!" And she's holding up something black and round. Since I can't see, and she's HOLDING it, I assume it's play dough and just ask "what is it?" To which she just shrugs her little shoulders and says "dog poop". I flew out of bed and yell "put it down and go wash your hands!"
So this morning, we are washing bedding... and to top it off, she has no idea where she got it! The only thing I can think of is that it somehow got put in the box of toys that I brought down from the attic and I didn't find it when I put them away again. Needless to say, we will be washing an awful lot of toys in the next couple days!

Been Awhile

Is anyone even still checking in on this?!! I'm sure I would have given up by now... :)
Latest and greatest: Isabelle will be starting preschool September 5th! She's very excited and I'm a little excited, a little nervous... I know she'll do great and really, it will be no different than daycare, but it's just the fact that it has the word "school" in the name - makes it all sound so much older and I'm not ready for her to be older yet! She is a great help around the house - turning into quite the little mommy. She always wants to help her brother out and even tries to pick him up and carry him sometimes, which is quite hilarious, given that he is more than half her size! She has a mind of her own and is currently infatuated with Scooby Doo and My Little Pony's. She starts most her sentences these days with "Like..." - totally Shaggy!
George is growing like a weed and is officially walking! He is talking more an more every day. Today, he said "Mommy" for the first time!!! :) He also learned the sign for "eat" and figured out where his nose and ears are today. It was a busy day! He is now 34 inches tall and doesn't seem to be willing to slow it down for me...  This stage is always so strange for me... On one hand, it's super exciting to watch your child become more independent and learn so much. On the other hand, it's kind of sad to reach that point where they don't have to depend on you for every little thing... *sigh*
Our household is currently undergoing a major organizational change, which I have begun to refer to as "Operation Organization". It's exhausting, but I can't stand the clutter and chaos anymore! I cleaned and reorganized the kitchen last week and am currently working on converting the living room/dining room areas to our new family/play area. The play area in the basement is disappearing and moving upstairs! I need to get some storage put into the living room and go through the toys to get rid of about half of them and then we'll be good to go! Hopefully a single room of toys and much less toys will help keep the place tidier and help Belle to learn to clean up after herself! Nick will be thrilled to have the entire basement back to actually become his "man cave". Not sure which will go in first - pool table or poker table... Hoping for the later! :) Either way, I see a serious basement re-org in my near future!
Jenny Jean Designs is finally beginning to take off! I've had 3 sales this week alone with another tomorrow to a wonderful friend of mine! Here's hoping this is the beginning of good things to come! :)
