Some random stuff...

I had a pretty busy weekend, starting on Friday by being the "duty mom" at Ella's preschool. I honestly don't know how preschool and daycare workers do this all day, 5 days a week. I was there for three and a half hours and was EXHAUSTED!!!! So once again, I tip my hat to all those out there who are given the responsibility of caring for and educating the very young...

Afterwards, Ella wanted to follow in her cousins' footsteps and get a haircut so that she could donate her hair to Locks of Love (www.locksoflove.org) As it turns out, her hair didn't meet the minimum requirement for her to have it donated to make a wig, however, we'll be sending it anyway and the organazation will sell it to offset some of their costs, which is fine by me. Kudos to them and what they do for kids as well.

So here is Ella before the cut (what's up with the pose?)


And the after shot (please excuse the goofiness to her face, she LOVES to do this whenever I try to take a pic of her). For Ella, the best part of the whole experience was the lollipop--go figure!


Then we shipped off the kids to my sisters for the night--yup, the WHOLE night (hip hip HOORAY!) while the hubby and I had a night with two other grown-ups. We met downtown for supper then went to a movie. I haven't seen a movie in the theater for almost two years I think... We went and saw "Across the Universe" and if anyone is a Beatles fan, you're gonna love it. I was into it right from the opening scene. You can check it the trailer from YouTube...

Unfortunately, I had to work both Saturday and Sunday, so that sucked, and when I got home on Sunday, I discovered that The Gooch was likely starting a cold. Well, he woke up this morning and it's croup...poor baby. So the Gooch is miserable, and there's nothing I can do for him *sniff* Hopefully he gets better in the next couple of days and we won't need a trip to the pediatrician's office.

I'm also hoping to find some time to scrap this week. I've got all kinds of ideas in my head and no time lately to let it all come pouring out...

I took a double take on Sunday when I saw her...she's looks so adorable! and it must be so much easier to maintain now, i'm sure.
