Happy Hump Day Everyboy!
So, my goal yesterday and today during the day has been to get caught up on laundry after a super busy weekend where I completely ignored the laundry! (In my house that means the always present mountain of laundry has grown ALARMINGLY HIGH!) I was admittedly in a hurry starting the next load in the washer when the clumsies attacked!
Ok... so I am always looking to save money, but lately if it makes things run smoother and quicker I have been willing to pay a little more. So, I decided to get these cool laundry pods instead of making my own laundry soap (like I have been doing for about a year now). I've been using them for about a week and loving that it's a simple grab and toss into the washer. It's great unless you have these darn clumsy genes that have been lovingly passed onto you! (Love you Mamma!)
So, I reached up to grab a pod out of the container to toss into the washer and knocked the whole bucket over... pouring about 10 pods into the washer! Yikes! I reached in and started fishing out little slippery pods... slippery as they had started to dissolve instantly when in contact with water! I got about 5 out when the ones in my hand started to leak! All the time visions of soap pouring out of my washer all over the place if I don't get these out of here... surely that is way to much soap! So, I got all but two out... plus a little leaking between my fingers. I dashed to the sink to dispose of the rest of them as there was no saving them now... they were a congealed leaking blob in my hand at this point.
I washed the blob off of my hand and started adding clothes. So far no bubbles are pouring out of the washer so hopefully I escaped that nightmare with this clumsy experience... this time!
Hopefully your day is less exciting and clumsy as mine! :-)

I decided today is the day! Today we start no more binkie! I've been thinking it is time to get Chaeli off of her binkie for a while, but knowing what I am getting into with her teething on top of the whining that will go on for a few days I just haven't felt up to it. I decided today is the day. It's not going to get any easier!
So far it hasn't been to... bad She fussed some but I kept crackers handy and tried to keep her busy and distracted. Nap was a little bit hard. She cried, but she did fall asleep after a little bit. Daddy went and snuggled her for a minute since I was in the middle of lunch with the other kiddos. She loves to get Daddy snuggles! :-)
What do you think? I know there are lots of opinions on if kiddos should have a binkie or not. My oldest had a binkie for a short while, but changed over to sucking his fingers early on. (BTW it's much easier to take away a binkie than sucking fingers in my opinion!) My second had a binkie but we weaned him off of it easily pretty early. Mrs. Chaeli just loves her binkie! I just don't want her to turn out like her Mamma and almost go to Kindergarten with it! LOL
