september twenty-nine


Again I forgot Sean's Nunu at home today. As long as I got it there before nap time, I was safe. So I ran back there on my way to do errands and dropped it off to the administrator who gave it to Sean's teacher. I am able to pick in from the outside into his classroom (It's painted up until neck/head length (depending on your height)), and so I peaked in. He wasn't crying! (Though he did cry when I left him this morning) The teacher exchanged his blankie (that he uses for nap time) for his Nunu and he didn't even cry. (Though I was told he carried it everywhere in school today). I need another one. Exactly like it. It comes from Carters in the USA. I hope they still have it. I'd love to buy another one (at least 1 other one), so I can leave one at daycare and I don't have to worry about forgetting it there or here. (One day after picking him up I forgot it at daycare for the night). We're off to Rhinebeck in 18 days, so I'm hoping to find another one at the outlet malls when we go. My mom got it when Sean was newborn ish - so I'm hoping they still have this one!! I've tried Ebay, and Carters online, no luck. (Carters online apparently only has clothes?)

I returned home after some errands to some mail. I got my Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Rockin' Sock Club kit - with a tape measure as well! The colorway is called Tide Pooling. I love it!

This afternoon we had a mini playgroup because tonight everyone was busy with Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year). We told the girl we didn't want there that there was no point in her coming from the city to my part of town (she's one of 3 people from the city in playgroup) for playgroup today, and she agreed not to come. At least we get to avoid her for one week. We had an interesting discussion at playgroup today about her, and what to do - and everyone feels that we shouldn't boot her (Karma or something), even if we all don't like her. I don't get it.

Tonight we went to my in-laws (Jamie's dad and step-mom's) for Rosh Hashanah Dinner. My new haircut is fabulous for showing off dangle earrings. I love it. I love earrings.

Mack was dressed super cute (and because he didn't soil this outfit, he'll be re-wearing it tomorrow night for Rosh Hashanah dinner at my Aunt's house (Jenn's mom & dad's house).

And Sean was looking super cute as well even though he wasn't feeling well. I got a call mid-afternoon to come get Sean from daycare, as he had a fever. (I was actually on my way out the door when they called to go pick him up anyhow). When he got home he had 101.5 fever. Poor guy. Before he went to bed this evening he had 103.1. I think he's cutting a molar. I'll check tomorrow. He was really out of it this evening. Poor guy.

To those of you celebrating Rosh Hashanah, Shana Tova!

I don't see a problem with excusing yourself from the company of the mommy who's not working in your playgroup. After all, the group is something you've set up for YOUR (and your family's) enjoyment and benefit... and if something is causing your to not enjoy and benefit from it, then there's a problem that needs fixing or else it won't be worth it. (You can tell your group members I said so! ;-)

I am a classic non-confrontational type, so if I was in your situation, I would think up excuses to act like the group is cancelled for the week-- sick kids, workmen in the house, last minute emergency, etc. She will start scheduling other activities for herself & baby once she realizes that playgroup is always falling through at the last minute! In the meantime, the "good" members of the group can continue to meet discretely, as long as everyone agrees in the course of action (and the chosen excuse/alibi!!).

Does the Nunu have to be EXACTLY the same? Because they've got similar ones at Wal-Mart, you know. That's where I bought Maxime's (both of them!).

Nell said...

Cute hair! I'm not sure I'd told you before but I really like it!
