If you have curly hair, how do you keep it from being frizzy? It's not as bad in Colorado, but now that it is raining every afternoon, I need a solution and fast. I've tried all the curly shampoos, conditioners, gels, and mousses. Maybe I am just doing the wrong combo? It there something new out there? I have curls and curls and curls. Millions.
Potty training--The doctor told us to forget about it for a while. We are trying, but it is hard. He totally will not do it at all. I'm sure it's a power struggle, but what can I do for him to get over it and pee and poop in the potty. We tried stickers, treats, books, cars, prizes, you name it. I remember my mom telling me that my Grandmother thought I should spank him every time. I still won't do that, because I know he won't possibly go to college wearing diapers, but I am not so sure he won't be wearing them to kindergarten. I am open to any and all suggestions.
I want to move my garden with us. Gunner thinks this is ridiculous and a waste of time. I am thinking of all the money I have invested in it, not to mention time! Tell me I am not crazy.
A gross story--the dog kept going after things that were digging holes in our yard. We figured he would never catch the moles. Ummmm....he caught one, it wasn't a mole, and he managed to get the bloody carcass into the house. I turned around and started screaming. This lead to the girls screaming and Junior screaming. Gunner walked over, plucked it out of Sammy's mouth and throw it away, while holding his breakfast in the other hand. Ewwwwwwww......My solution to prevent it from happening again? He has to be supervised at all times. Let's hope the next place doesn't have giant rats.
If you ever see me in a store and I am buying a material possession, please knock me upside the head and escort me out of the store. I do not need anything.
Gunner told me last night that saying goodbye to Em was really hard. She kept telling him "don't say anything else or I'll start crying". Poor kiddo, headed off on a big adventure but in the back of her mind she knows it will be a long time till she sees her dad again. What does every tween pack for London? Cute clothes, diary, toiletries, and her daddy doll.
