i got a great suggestion from la on how to tackle my tragedy of a home -- people like you, la, are my inspiration. SHE has three kids and a perfect house, i can do it too! well, probably not perfect, but a little closer to it than i am now.
even better is the thought of just cleaning the kitchen makes me feel like i could take on some other things this afternoon and evening as well. it's just a matter of breaking it down a bit, and then it looks tacklable. i don't think that's a word, but who cares.
so.. since this is only one example of the infinately wise women reading my blog, i have another one for ya.
how did your kid learn to drink from a sippy cup? i have one that i give ellie with water in it, but she uses it as a toy so far.
i'm not stressing or anything. just wondering if there is some trick to it.
