a day in the life of a toddler...

So, here it is, a good day in the life of a zeltner toddler.

Chris had the day off, so that always means a happier mommy and more trips out! They woke up to a new toy outside in the backyard (a pop up train thingy- $8 off craiglist!)

So after that, we took the boys to the mance buchanon park in oceanside. We have never been there before, and they have the BEST play equipment!

Caden refused to get out of the swing, Rylan was obsessed with that little elephant rocker thingy, and if youre wondering, Ethan was not so happy when i took that bag of strawberries away!

After that, we took an hour nap (not long enough for mommies standards!) and went to visit grammy and grandpas house! We went swimming in their hot tub, ate pizza for dinner, and grammy gave the boys lots of ice cream for dessert! (unfortunately, i dont have any pictures of that part- my camera was temporarily lost- under uncle ben's butt on the sofa!:)

must be a hard life to be a toddler huh? and tomorrow... we go to the wild animal park!

youre a winner!

Heck, i thought it was cute... LOVE the picture, it made me smile. and sort of similar to chain emails, here you go!

The first 5 people to respond to this post will receive something made by me. What I make will be my choice, but it will be made just for you. Since I only really have 5 readers, that means that you’ll all probably get something

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2. What I create will be an original and it will be made just for you.
3. It’ll be done this year (might be December 31st, but you WILL get something) and I will post all of my original creations as they are completed.
4. You will get no clues what it’s going to be. Heck, I don’t even know what it will be. I might paint or draw something. I might compose a jingle or short song. I might even write a short play just for you. Who knows? Whatever it is, it will be a surprise!
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange

The catch? The catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog.

Happy commenting (AND posting!)

cool whip mania!

As a fun/educational experience, Allison (the boys teacher) brought over some cool whip and food coloring... i looked forward to it- but knew it would take longer for the clean up than the actual playtime! nevertheless- it was totally worth it! the boys cracked up, practiced 'drawing', using a spoon,colors, and pointing. it was priceless! here are the pics!

I dont know if it is because my boys are preemies, or if their immune systems are lame, but i swear- every 2 months they get sick!!! and with three boys, when one gets it- they all get it.

Caden got it first, coughing like crazy... three days later, ethan got it, and added the runny nose. three days after that, rylan got it, and he got it worst of all! fever, sore throat (he refuses to eat), cough, and more snot than you can possibly imagine!

It wouldnt be so bad... if there were three of me! they all want to be held and cuddled, dont want to eat (which is no good for rylan considering he still barely weighs 20 pounds- although he has probably lost some by now), and they dont take very good naps! And being a mom who schedules like crazy- when my routine is screwed up- my life is screwed up! poor chris- he had to leave for a new shift yesterday (new training officer in a new area), and leave a crying wife and two screaming children (luckily my ethan was being a sweetheart at that moment and was playing in his exersaucer).

I know, one of these days i will yearn for the time when i had three children under 18 months- but that day is certainly not today!

WHEW! now i feel better, and can go back to my normal cheerful self! ....

Wait... theres a baby crying... OFF I GO!
