Tuesday Toot


It has been forever since I've done a Tuesday Toot, so it's about time I got back in the game here. :)


As many of you have expressed, moving with two little ones is no picnic. It's not easy to get much done, and when you are busy doing things to move you feel guilty about the lack of attention you are paying to those dear little ones...


We made the big move here merely 5 months ago... and it was a difficult move. Very disruptive for the kids. And in getting things ready to move, it was almost impossible for me to get anything done. Baby B was only 6 mos old and at that point where there wasn't a whole lot that would keep her occupied. I probably managed to pack about 3 boxes total. My husband and older daughter ended up doing most of the packing.


But this time around things are going much better. I'm able to get a little more done. Partly because B is more mobile and able to occupy herself quite a bit. But the big difference this time is that it's summer and I have the help of my 11-year old daughter. M has really stepped up and done a great job helping out with the two little ones while I've been busy making phone calls and packing boxes.


She has become the expert at getting B to sleep! I hate to admit it, because in reality she's had an easier time getting B to nap than I have! B fights me like crazy when I try to get her to nap. She puts up very little fight for M.

So my toot this week goes out to my daughter M! Mommies little helper ;)

Lets hear it for your daughter! Getting a baby to sleep deservese a few cupcakes when you are done moving.

I want a helper! Yay for helpers!

I'm so buying that Sandra Cisneros book "Hair/Pelitos" for my boy! I love her -- I also want to get Julia Alvarez's childrens books some day too.

She deserves something special for that! We have the sleep wars over here all the time. Could I borrow her? LOL

My older sister helped my mom out with us younger ones, especially the youngest.
