A Little Bit Of This and That

Poor little Lilli got a summer something or the other.  We were out and about yesterday running errands and she seemed just fine.  We stopped at the Goodwill and when I got her out of her car seat she felt a little bit hot.  I wasn’t concerned, because she was riding in the sun and it was hot out yesterday.  I figured she was just sweaty.  The kids were so great in the store and they let me look at all the books.  I got a few as well as a yellow chair for Kaleb’s desk, an UBER hippy skirt for me, a Christmas dress for Lilli, two pairs of jammies for Kaleb and a pair of jeans for him as well.

After that we headed over to my sister’s to grab a few things.  When I got Lilli out of the car she still seemed warm and was coughing a little bit.  Hmm.  Kaleb was hungry so I set the kids up on his new bed over there and made something to eat.  My sister came in and said that Lilli’s eyes seemed to be watering.  Sigh.  So i went in there and felt her head and sure enough it was a fever.  We got out the thermometer and I was shocked to see it climb up to 102.3!  She was still acting fine though and I wasn’t going to giver her anything yet.  I gave her some juice and we headed home.  I set her up on our bed and put a few things away.  I checked her temp again and it was 103.  Crap.  I gave her something and she didn’t put up a fight.  She nursed and fell asleep only to wake up about 20 minutes later.  Needless to say it was a rough night and she still isn’t feeling well.  She still has a bit of a fever, but not as bad as last night, so hopefully it will break.

A few weeks ago Kaleb went to camp.  He liked it, but he asked that I not leave him anymore.  Poor guy.  He was very proud of the thing that he made and we have this HUGE paper haging in our house.

He looks so cute with his Wiggles backpack!

We have actually decided hot to send him to pre school and home school instead.  If he asks to got to school, then we will go from there.  He just really doesn’t seem to be ready to go out on his own.  Lilli will be a different story though!  She was more than happy to march in and make herself at home there!

Well little miss needs some snuggles!

Wow, just wow!

Yesterday was a SUPER fun day!  My sister and got up so early to drive to Bellevue for the kids sale.  We weren’t as early as we have liked, but next year we will first in line.  We have been planning on going since the sale in October last year.  SO this year was great.  It as the nicest day of the year, so standing in line was really nice.

The sale itself was just as fun and hectic as last year.  I missed out on a whole bunch of toys and furniture ’cause I ran straight for the trainers and shoes first.  I found the BEST trainers that I will never ever be able to get my hands on again.  They are from Japan.  I also found a whole bunch of Hello Kitty for Lilli’s room.  I had so much stuff when we were checking out and I was worried that I would go over my budget, since I really hadn’t totaled anything in line.  I didn’t thankfully and had a lot left over to have fun with at the Green Festival.

After the sale we headed over to the Green Festival.  We were both STARVING and headed right over to the food area.  I tried the vegan sausage, which was yummy.  I was still hungry and got a veggie burrito.  We sat down next to the funniest guy who had some really great ideas and he will be having a revised book of his coming out this summer some time!  So I was now stuffed and very happy.  We headed over to the booths and started sampling teas and chocolate.  That was kind of hard since I had just stuffed my face.

I was super excited to see three booths of cloth diapers and of course headed right over.  I encountered the rudest/stupidest girl at the BG booth.  I haven’t really decided what she was yet.  She got right in my face and asked if I had heard of clot diapers.  Haha.  I told her yup, we already cd!  Instead of saying great or yay, she was like” oh”.  Literally, “oh”.  Sorry that you couldn’t convert me, sheesh.  So then she goes, “WELL these are the BEST diapers EVER”(exact emphasis btw).  I smiled and said “I think they would be the best if they had snaps instead of aplix”.  She smirked and said, “well that’s pretty much never going to happen”  Ok then.  I told her I really didn’t appreciate how she was treating me and turned and walked over to the Fuzzi Bunz booth.  I happily bought 3!  The new style is weird and I took pictures of sizing if anyone was wondering.  I spent a little time telling the lady the observations that I had with them.  I then headed over to the booth that was being run by my local cloth diaper shop.  Nothing too interesting over there.  Textile prefolds.  Yuck.

My sister and I walked around for another 3 hours, got TONS of samples and were pretty much exhausted.  We made it through the whole place and ran back through to get a few more of the bigger sized samples and buy some fair trade coffee and tea.  i found some shoes that I am going to get and a few clothing companies that I want to check out as well.

I will try and update with some pictures a little later.
