Unwanted Guest


After being concerned about a small spot on the ceiling above Jonathan's bed, we bought a home mold test from Home Depot (Jonathan's favorite place to get a hot dog). We did two tests, a surface test, and an air test. Our results, the photo. After a few days the ceiling and walls were cut out, an issue with the ventilation pipe from our basement bathroom was fixed, and the insulation and drywall have been repaired.

I am hoping this help with the kids chronic coughs, particularly Jonathan's, his has been the worst. We have another visit scheduled for him next week. They both had allergy profiles ran last week, generic allergy tests, and mold specific allergy tests, both came back completely negative for any allergies. I am a little shocked, I was actually hoping something would show up so we could know what is wrong. Hoping to get some results next week.

Wordless Wednesday


Hallmark, here we come! Again!

My Crazy Kids


Jonathan:
Started "school time" at daycare again. Was very excited. Has started quoting his favorite movies. Is 30 lbs exactly. Has had a horrible cough since July 20th, multiple dr trips. First a "virus", then "asthma/allergies", now a "bacterial overgrowth", however none of the medicine is making a difference.Can be very sassy. Loves riding his bike. Will yell at you if he thinks you are not buckled up in the car. We always buckle up. Tells on himself when he get's in trouble. Blames everything on Aunt Becky.




Lilah:
Is one. Has a 12th tooth. Yes, all 4 molars. One is all the way in, the other three are all poking through, but not in all the way across yet. Says "Momma" when she wants me, says "mine" when she wants what you have, and likes to sing her favorite song "Lilah" that Jonathan and I made up when she was a newborn. Loves to give kisses, which could be confused with eating your face, until you hear the kissing sound she makes when she is finished. Walks. Runs. Loves shoes. Loves to feed her baby dolls bottles, then attempt to help herself until she realizes they are not real. Is officially done nursing. Tear. Sob. Crying a river.

Lunch Menu Monday


I normally pack both of the kids lunches everyday, sometimes breakfast too. I recently fell in love with the LapTop Lunches that I ordered for both of the kids. I love the bento style lunches and have been doing them for over a year. I have been wanting to order bento boxes but the majority of them come from Japan or China, and they are not microwave or dishwasher safe, and those are a must. Not knowing what the heck is in the plastic also was a concern for me. Hence the purchase of the LapTop Lunches. BPA free, dishwasher safe, microwave safe, and all of the containers have lids. The box itself even has a spot for silverware and a napkin. Love it!

I cook dinner about 90% of the time. Once and a while we will grab something on the way home, but we have a lot of food in the house, so we might as well use it. Every week we try to stop at the Farmers Market on Sunday to get out fruits and vegetables. I stock up on meat when it is on sale, the basics we buy each week, and everything else I stock up on and store in the pantry. We always have leftovers, so I like to put them to use, mainly for our lunches.

I thought I would start doing pictures of the kids lunches on Monday.

Welcome "Lunch Menu Monday"!

I just took a picture of Jonathan's lunch this week as him and Lilah have pretty much the same thing. Tomorrow is his first day of Preschool at Ms, Di's, so he wants to take his lunch in a backpack. Too funny, they do "school time" for an hour or so, and he is sooo excited to start again.

Monday's Menu:

Whole wheat pasta, light smoked sausage, olive oil, diced tomatoes, zucchini, onions, and eggplant. The zucchini and eggplant came from Nana and Papa's garden, and I think it might have been the biggest zucchini EVER!

2 plumbs from Spicers Orchard which we visited on Sunday.

Raspberries and Blueberries that we picked from Spicers. Well, Mike and I picked them. Jonathan put 4 raspberries in the quart and everything else he picked, he ate.

Corn Bread that Grandma made, mmmmmm!

One of Jonathan's favorite drinks, Milk!

Chocolate Teddy Grahams for a treat!
