We put 14 ozs. of cooking oil in it. It has the same effect as Alli.
Any new family additions this year? Another baby(twins, perhaps?), or maybe a dog or a cat? 2008 will be gr8.
I'm considering getting a Chia Pet.
I do have one semi-serious question, but financially we are getting drained with one child and me staying at home (well sort of I teach at our Parent's Day Out/Preschool) how do you make financial ends meet, that is before the blog?
It's called "creative financing". That's when you go through your bills every month and decide who you'll pay and who will have to wait.
I need to know though what did you have on that all the kids including the younger ones were all sitting still? Or was that a split second thing?
The Simpson's Movie. Yes, I know. Good quality stuff there.
I do have a question for you though. My son got a rootbeer off of the shelf this evening, dropped it to the floor, and puncturing it so that it spewed. EVERYWHERE. My question is, HOW am I going to get all of this stinky stuff cleaned off of everywhere?
When you all go out for pizza, how do you decide what to get on it?
Seriously? We ask everyone what they want. Crazy, I know.
If you were to do a Mayo Fountain, what would you use to dip into the fountain?
Enlighten me, How do you do the cross through when writing on Blogger?
A question for your Sunday sound off: Will there be a book tour when your book comes out in the near future?
I know of 2 people who took these fat pills. Both had er...uh... "oily" accidents. One of them was at work and she had to go home to change. Her chair wasn't pleasant to walk by let me tell you! When she changed jobs we let her take her personalized chair with her.
Did it look like Jerry's couch after Poppy sat on it?
Go you for doing WW, but really, I've seen pictures and I have no idea why you're doing it?!?!!?
ROFL!!! That's pretty funny. BTW, you're my new best friend, Manic!
Have you tried watching that yo gabba gabba video again?
Duh! Why didn't I think of that! That's the best weight loss program out there!
My husband is skinny and does not get it either. I just had my 4th, 7 months ago and now weigh 180 pounds! I am trying to eat 2000 calories a day since I am nursing...You think 2000 calories is plenty, right? I am starving!!! I am only on day 4.. SO STARVING!!!! Any suggestions for a low calorie food that actually keeps you full?
I hear styrofoam fills you up pretty well. And, for what it's worth, I was always starved when I was nursing my kids too. I never lost an ounce while breastfeeding.
My husband even noticed how many diet comercials there are lately! LOL!!! I have been noticing all the other food ads. LOL!!! We are both trying to loose weight. Maybe your husband needs to "diet" with you. ;)
HA! My husband polishes off a half gallon of ice cream every two days. There's no way he'd give that up.
First of all, to your many readers, it's "lose" weight, not "loose" weight!
Thank you! I've really been biting my tongue on that one.
So I started focusing on good quality foods in smaller quantities and my hubby loves it. We'll go out and buy a $60 roast and make it the way they do on TV and find that there's plenty for several days and it's truly satisfying.
$60 for a roast?!?!?! For that price, Emeril had better come cook it personally!
As I was sitting here reading the blog again I had a great idea. You need/want motivation for loosing weight.........just think they are going to put your picture on the back of a book for the world to see!
That is one of the biggest things that's motivating me!
Do you ever suffer from insomnia and if so any good cures??
I never have until these past couple weeks. For days now I haven't gotten to bed until 3:00am or later and then I just lie there unable to sleep. When else am I suppose to write? I'm really getting crabby from the lack of sleep. It's a good thing I have such a nice, considerate husband who understands and tries to help me out instead of one who says that I don't have a real job and won't bother to watch the kids so I can write. <---- read with immeasurable sarcasm.
Want to come clean my room too? I'll provide the liquor!=)
Throw in babysitting and I'm there!
What's your opinion on children with siblings vs. only children?. Do you think your children are better off having siblings or do you wish they were only children so you could pay more attention and focus on only one child? Would your children be more cooperative if they were onlies, does it not matter, or are they actually more cooperative, working as a team?
Well, since I don't have an only child, I can't answer this. People choose the family size that's right for them. I can't imagine only having one kid in my family. I do know that parents of only one child never have to answer the question, "Who started it?" though.
Or is this one of those "if a monkey bit you" questions?
I love the wooden thing with the bins that slide in an out...did the hubster make this or something you purchased? And if purchased, from where?
Dawn, did I miss something. Did Julian pass?? I read all your posts but I haven't seen an update lately about Julian since the one where he was able to celebrate christmas.I hope he is okay and still fighting strong.
No, I'm sorry if I made it sound like that. Julian's still hanging on, sleeping a lot and having some seizures, but still giving smiles. :)
So, do all six of your kids have their own room? Wow, you must have a big house.
Ummm, not exactly. We have about a 1000 square foot house and the kids share rooms.
Speaking of...is Brooklyn expected to become an older sibling sometime soon...?I'm sure she'd love a younger brother(have to keep the pattern going...boy, girl, boy, girl, etc...)Speaking of the pattern, how did you manage to have six kids with an equal number of girls and boys AND going in alternating order? Quite a coincidence, I would say!
We planned it that way.
For a child with five siblings, Lexi sure does have a lot of stuff!
That mess was comprised of all three girls' belongings which are all stored in one little room.
I also remember he used to use his diaper as a pocket. Is this something I will get to look forward to or was Donny the odd one out?
I don't know. Phil and Lil do it.
I let her daddy convince me that Santa just had to bring her Moon Sand as well, which I am now convinced comes straight from the offices of some one that has never, nor will ever, have children. They probably have nice, white furniture and carpet up at Moon Sand Central, too. You know what they don't have there? Yep. Moon Sand.
My husband just asked me to buy some Scotch Guard so he could make his own moon sand. @@
If you could have only had ONE of your kids, and had less(hopefully!) of a mess, which kid would you have had?
Well, "anonymous", this is by far the dumbest question I have ever read. You obviously don't have kids.
