The things I learned this week

A friend of mine has a blog and she posts every week about the different things that she learned that week and then asks what the reader has learned that week. Well I was going to reply to it and made this big long post about all the things I had learned that week and then submitted it and it didn't show up and so I tried again three more times without much success, now either I don't know what I'm doing and don't know how to reply, or she has it set where she has to approve comments in which case I will look like an idiot. Anyway I thought what the heck I have my own blog I can post it there, now if only I can remember it.

The things I learned this week.
1) It is nearly impossible to get both my bathrooms clean, when the babies are awake they want to be right where I am and that can't be when I cleaning the bathrooms, you know all the cleaners and such and their favorite thing is to play in the toilet. So simple solution wait till they are takeing a nap right, well half way right, that lets me get one bathroom clean. As many of you may know we turned one of our closets (that are in our master bathroom) into a bedroom for the twins, this is great unless I'm trying to clean said bathroom because inevitably one of them will wake up before I get it all cleaned, hopefully I can figure out a solution to this one soon.

2) I found a really cool channel on Cox it is 928. It is a music channel called Toddler Tunes, and it just plays videos it is like listening to the radio. During the day they play upbeat music of all different variaties from Laurie Berkner to old Sesame Street songs and then in the evening they play softer more calming music, like U2 and the Beatles done Lullaby style. It is really neat and the babies (and the big kids) just love it.

3) I do not like confrontation and when it needs to be done just thinking about it will keep me up at night and turns my stomach into knots.

4)I'm learning to knit but I'm teaching myself and either I'm not a very good teacher or not a very good student because it is going very slowly.

5) I am terrified of going back to school and just found this out because I'm going to be taking some classes in the fall. I think it is because I am so scared of failing, you can't fail if you don't try.

6)Avrah is not quite ready to go overnight without a diaper, we tried last night and I was up at 4:30 this morning changing did she keep her diapers dry and then go when she was wearing panties.. oh well maybe she had to much to drink, we'll try again another night.

7)I had another one and it was a good one but it has slipped my mind so hopefully I'll remember it later.

What did you learn this week?

(oh by the way I only tried to post the first three on my friends comments)


  1. I usually clean my bathroom while the kids are taking a bath. We mothers have to multi-task! Between hair washings I'll wipe down the counters or clean the toilet. This way you only have to clean the tub while they are sleeping. :)

    I took up knitting last year...not very good either.

    Something I learned this week? I CAN'T do it all. I tried, I can't. I need help w/ moving, the kids, unpacking, garage sale, waking up @ 5am every morning, it's all catching up to me & I'm EXHAUSTED!! The house is on hold and I'm relaxing and having fun w/ my kids again.

  2. that's cool about channel 928...never knew it existed! asher is my little musician, so when i put it on he started dancing... so cute!

  3. You're so funny! I do have my comments set where I have to approve them, Mike made me do this for spam purposes... What classes are going to be taking?
