Random Statmens and Questions

1. This is the second cold I've had since school started. NOT a good start. Typically I get one a year, at the most two. I need to research immune boostings foods. I'll put that on my to do list along with making baby food, climbing Mt. Everest (just wanted to see if you were paying attention), and cutting out this week's coupons.
2. I am love, love, loving Amirah at this stage. Ysmaille and I spent all evening trying to get her to walk from one of us to the other. She is getting much better. It's a cycle of stand up, take a step, fall, crawl, crawl, crawl, stand up, fall, stand up, take a step, fall....
3. I made homemade calzones last night and they were a big hit! I love it when I make something Ysmaille loves. Too often our mealtimes consist of me trying to get him to eat broccoli.
4. I haven't had my hair cut since last November. Not even a trim. I think that might be a crime in some states. If not, it probably should be.

1. How bad is it for my skin that I wash my face with bar soap and take showers so hot my skin turns red by the time I get out?
2. How do I respond when my student says someone called him the "ch" word? He meant the "sh" word, but he has a little trouble spelling. Should I laugh or cry?


  1. Baby food really is simple to make. Just good a bunch of carrots until soft then put them in the blender and puree. Add as much water as needed. I have also put sweet potatoes in the crock pot over night on low. In the morning take the skin off and puree in the blender. I've also socked whole prunes in water for awhile until "plump" then puree in the blender.

    Yeah, for the calzones! I too love when I make something my family likes. Sadly they aren't big fans of broccoli.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  2. bar soap?!? mel! please, be good to your face. make it your evening ritual as soon as you get home: wash face with gentle cleanser, massage in a nice moisturizer AT THE VERY LEAST. not only will this be relaxing, it will help you feel like you did at least a single thing that is purely 'for you' each day. and 20 yrs from now, you will be grateful.

  3. Calzones sounds delicious! I think I'm putting that on my menu for this week.

    I love Amirah at this stage too - she is all over the place!

  4. You make me laugh! Yes, it is a crime to not have your hair cut in a year? I taught you better than that! I love, love, love Amirah, too! We had so much fun watching her this afternoon.
