Do not mind the appearance

However I tried doing something on my own instead of enlisting in the help of Dawn.

Good luck/bad luck

What is luck and where does it come from?
Why am I discussing luck?
Well I just deleted one of those "don't you dare delete this or you will have a lifetime of bad luck starting tomorrow morning" emails.
Do you guys believe in luck?
I would love to be able to do a survey but I am not that talented in the blogging world so instead of answering a survey answer in a comment.

Well a bit of a waste of time and gas

So this morning my plans included going to the bank to withdraw money for the party at Little Bear Gym that will be taking place on June 13Th (be prepared Julie and guys are invited with the kids) and sure enough I drive all the way to Little Bear Gym to see a sign stating they are closed for vacation May 2-9. Hello was this a spur of the moment thing? Only reason I ask is because when I booked it last week and told them I would be down on the 2ND to pay the deposit he did not say anything about being closed. Oh well I will bring it down when they are open again...I just hope they do not give the spot away b/c it is not mine until the deposit it there it is only written in pencil. Keep fingers crossed!

No pull ups

So tonight will be an attempt to break Catherine from her pull ups. I am having her go to the bathroom every few hours during the day (or else she will hold it and therefore pee while sleeping) and cutting off liquids 2 hours before bedtime and waking her before I go to bed. I have 10 nights before going back to work. Wish us luck!

Which Baby Is This?

This picture when I first came upon it on a screen saver had me stumped. I could not figure out which kid it was. Catherine or Christian. Well after the suggestion from Dawn to go to my Picaso and look up the date I found it to be Catherine. However at that age (6 weeks) that is what Christian looked like to a tee!

The Golden Girls

So I just discovered that Bea Arthur who played Dorothy on the Golden Girls passed away this weekend. That is very sad. I love that show.

Now this is much better LOL

So at the dinner table Catherine began to sing "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands". So I started to sing along. She stopped mid song and said "Wait a minute Mommy how do you know that song?" So I proceeded to explain to her that I also went to a religious school when I was her age and that her Auntie Dawn also went to school with me there and that is when she and I met.
So needless to say at least she is learning the religious stuff that I do want her to learn and my money is feeling better spent.
And a side note especially for Dawn, Catherine was very upset that I went to school in Florida because she said you could never have lived here in Connecticut because she thought you would be too cold!

Seriously is this where my money is going?

Now do not get me wrong...Catherine has learned a lot at preschool. However there are days I feel she has learned too much. Just days when I am being lectured by a 4 1/2 year old. Like yesterday. I am guessing Earth Day was either yesterday or very close to yesterday because I picked Catherine up and all she talked about all day was recycle and reuse. Oh and did I get into trouble when I threw something in the trash that could have been recycled. LOL
Well then out of the blue she started to tell me smoking is bad (no one in our family smokes) and that everyone in the world needs to quit (which I agree with simply because I cannot stand the smell of it when I walk by someone who is smoking) and that she is going to help everyone quit smoking by giving them smoking medicine.
Of course these 2 new kicks come after the police girl Catherine and nutrition specialist Catherine.
She is a trip.
And I can't wait for Kindergarten. Where it is all about learning what she needs to learn!
