MLM Playdate at the Zoo - Wild Lights

Friday night Kaitlynn, MawMaw and I went to the Zoo for Wild Lights. It was MomsLikeMe.com night. Thankfully, I got to work inside at The Living World giving out gloves to the first 100 moms and mittens to the first 100 babies / toddlers. MawMaw and Kaitlynn participated in the Lowe's Build & Grow activities in The Living World. Kay Quinn was there to read stories to the kids.


Here is a video from the Zoo's website.

Little Tykes 2 - Let It Snow

Thursday, Dave and Kaitlynn attended her last Little Tykes 2 class. The theme was Let It Snow.
Kaitlynn's become quite the artist!
It's sad because this could very well be her last PCIP (Parent Child Interaction Program) class for 2 year olds!

We joined a Produce Co-op in our area from MomsLikeMe.com and received our first order. It was only a half order, but I think think we are going to like it. I can't believe how much stuff we got - mushrooms, apples, lettuce, jumbo carrots, zucchini, Roma tomatoes, bananas, grapefruit and tangerines.

Stomach Virus

Kaitlynn came down with the stomach virus late Monday night going into Tuesday morning. She had diarrhea and was vomiting. The vomiting lasted about 7 hours. I called the pediatrician's exchange and they said she isn't contagious when she is vomit free for 6 hours. They said the stomach virus usually lasts 12-24 hours. Tuesday the pediatrician's office called to check on her. I really like that they follow up on the calls to the exchange.

I came down with the stomach virus on Thursday. It seemed to last about 3 hours (at least the vomiting did). I was really hoping I wasn't going to get it because I was sanitizing like crazy.

Christmas Party

Monday the 14th, Kaitlynn and I met the playgroup at Yummy & Co bakery for our Christmas Party. Trisha and Kylie were the only ones who were able to come. Yummy & Co has a great area for the kids to play. Their cupcakes are super yummy and they have great coffee, too.

We brought cupcakes home for daddy and MawMaw. They really enjoyed them, too!

Santa at the Caboose

Sunday, December 13th, we took Kaitlynn to see Santa to get her picture with him. When we got there, she said she wanted to go home. We told her that she didn't have to see him if she didn't want to. We also told her that she should tell Santa what she wants for Christmas. She really wants a horse this year. She agreed to see him, but the whole time while waiting, she said she didn't like Santa. We just kept reassuring her and thankfully didn't have a long wait at all. There was one family in with Santa before us. Santa was so nice! He took his white gloves off to show Kaitlynn that he had hands like her. He talked to her and reassured her. She decided she would stand by him, but only with me next to her. Santa gave her a candy cane and she got a coloring book, too.

Afterwards, we took her to McDonald's to treat her to an ice cream cone.

Later that day, I wrapped Christmas presents.

Avon Recruits

Exciting news in regards to my Avon business / leadership. I signed up my 2nd recruit on Wednesday the 9th, 3rd recruit on Thursday the 10th, 4th recruit on Friday the 11th! I have more possible recruits that I am hoping to sign up before the end of the year.
Kaitlynn was being silly when Hanna, Adam and Amy were over on Thursday. Kaitlynn and Adam played while the rest of us did Avon stuff.

Little Tykes 2 - Nursery Rhymes

Thursday, December 10th, Kaitlynn and I attended Little Tykes 2 class. The theme was Nursery Rhymes. I love going to class with Kaitlynn. Her teacher, Sue, told the kids that they had a few minutes left to play before circle time. Kaitlynn put up what she was playing with and said she was ready for circle time. She grabbed my hand and guided me over to the circle to sit. Then during circle time, she was singing and clapping along to the songs. Another parent even mentioned how good Kaitlynn did with the welcome song.
