I might be crazy I decided. Who in their right mind hosts bunco and 1st birthday party within three days of each other along with having overnight company. Yeah, that's me. I think I have about 5 lists going, at least 50 cakes to make (ok, not 50, but I have a lot to do). Plus, I have to find subs for the bunco group. None-the-less, I am excited but crazy.
So the Grammy and the Rudy arrived last night and Willa was a little skeptical at first. Despite web-camming all the time it had been a while since she has seen them. They provided food and she was won over shortly.
She has been more chatty lately and told one of the daycare ladies NO when she needed he diaper changed. Of course she has never said that to her Mom because she is such a good little girl and minds her mom. :) Otherwise, she is her same busy self.
The work-spouse and I created another cake. We didn't know this person so we were a little nervous. It was the first time a cake was predominately fondant and my hands paid for it the next day. I rolled and rolled and rolled fondant it seemed like all day. But it turned out wonderful and she wants us to do a few more, and we had a few more requests.
But pictures to come of all the fun this weekend.

So I took Friday off to get the bathroom painted, plus DirecTV was being reinstalled. We began the morning taking the Kid to daycare and finishing tidying up the house. Next I battled Tricare for like the 5th time in a week trying to figure out why my faxes were going into NeverEverland. Finally got a chick that got the problem solved and semi-officially we are re-insured. So another trip back across town to the office to try a new fax. I say semi-officially because I am still not seeing it online. Though I must give props to their customer service because each time I called they sincerely seemed to be trying to figure out the problem and answer all my questions.
Tonight we learned not only can she take things apart or out of their container, but that she can put them back in. Her and B played with her tub of dinosaurs and she had great fun taking them in and out. She also tried to chug the bucket of dinos, which was hilarious! Hopefully we will expand on her cleaning up skills and she can help put away the massive amount of toys she drags out every night.

I am not even sure where I want to go in this post as we have had a sort of eventful week.
Sunday we headed off to Mass and while there was some crying and whining it didn't go so bad. She did however smack herself in the face with her sippy cup so it could have gone better. Sunday also brought sickness, of the doggy variety. Poor Bosco was throwing up all day and we couldn't figure out what was wrong. Finally on Tuesday it dawned on us. Our dear child was inadvertently trying to kill him. She loves to share her food with the dogs, usually making a game out of it. She had been feeding him her raisins!! We knew grapes were bad but never translated it on down the line to raisins. We stopped that little game and he seems to be feeling better.
Wednesday brought some interesting news for our little felon. Apparently, our daycare ladies feel she has been saying a four-letter word that rhymes with sit. We think she is probably trying to say sit, as she hears that all the time. Never in the history of our daycare have they ever had this problem in the nursery and they are not sure how to deal with it. They even think she has taught it to another kid. I was embarrassed beyond belief especially since there are not very many words she says consistently. I mean, really, she only says Mom when she is desperate to get her way. None-the-less we are really trying to watch what we say around her as we know we are no angels and have probably slipped in her presence. So if you are keeping track, so far, before the ripe old age of 1 we have a bully, a walker, a potty mouth and an attempted murderer. :) We love her anyway, all her sass and toothy smiles put together.
We can also add to her list of words besides the bad one. Dad, dog, mom, tickle tickle tickle, and EIEIO.
I got into the mail a special craft project for a little girl back East. Hopefully she likes it as much as we enjoyed making it. It only took me three times to find a box to ship it. We also got the invites in the mail for a 1st birthday party. It just doesn't seem possible that she is going to be 1 in a few weeks.
B and I both have a 4 day weekend since I finally got to take a vacation day. I finally feel like I am making some headway on the audits I am working on and it is just in time too. I was out doing fieldwork again today and it went so well that I am probably jinxing the wrap up by gloating.
We plan on painting the spare bathroom tomorrow. I would really like to replace a few other things in there but not sure we should undertake that right now as we get ready for the new windows, Bunco, and the birthday party.
But Happy Holiday weekend to you. If you hung with the rambling you deserve the days off. I had planned on talking about my love of Fall this week, so maybe I will save that for the weekend.

So I will do a full blog post as soon as I am not falling into bed at 9:30 one night. Believe me when I say we had an eventful week. Until then....
I am thankful:
For my brother and sister, how we can bash on each other one minute, and figuring out our problems the next. Though if they buy my kid a 4-wheeler I might reconsider.
For college football starting this weekend. I have missed it.
For a little girl that now says E-I-E-I-O and a few other words.
For a vacation day on Friday! Whoo-hoo
For figuring out a craft project, even though it was a fail, I know it will rock the next time. Even the hubby thought it was cool.
For my B, who finally appreciates my crafts.
