I know this is random and totally NOT the purpose of this product but I just have to say that Woolite pet stain + oxygen carpet cleaner is amazing!! It just took barbie pink nail polish out of Moira's fleece pajamas!!! ( yes nail polish + 2.5 year olds equals mess!)

there is no place like home

We are back at home after two days at the beach. I love the beach I love getting out of the house but there is a reason I like to do just day trips.
Moira is CRAZY! I mean out of the head crazy when we are not in our house at night. I'm not talking non stop crying I'm talking running around jumping on/off everything. Touching EVERYTHING! That girl was running around the hotel room till 9:30pm when she finally passed out, but don't think all is well no at 3:30am I get woke up by Moira running around the room saying "Morning mommy lets go to the BEACH!" Well it took till 5am to get her to go back to bed, then we were back up at 8am!
Yes I love my daughter but I love her more when we are in our own home at night! ;o)
I have a new "car knitting project" I created while on the trip I'm calling it a travel lovey I'll have photos up soon plus 2 market bags that are done and waiting for photos!
Well hope you all had much more sleep then I did :o)

Ok so that wasn't what I expected

So I went to the dentist today. And the pain I have been feeling is not from a bad tooth (but they did find a bad filling on the other side that I have to get fixed tomorrow). He (and btw very cute) said my teeth are fine but he thinks I have bruxism which is just a fancy word for I clench my jaw a lot. So don't really know how to stop doing that being that I do it mostly in my sleep and when stressed.
So tomorrow I get a filling just not on the area that has been causing me the crazy pain I have been going threw.

Soon but so far

Well I got a good phone call this morning from my Dentist, they had a cancellation and wanted to know if I wanted to take it and I was very happy to do that. But its not till tomorrow morning! Ugh still in pain, but at least I will get in tomorrow instead of Wednesday. So one more sleep till I get to find out the damage. I know its my fault because I haven't been in 4 years! But that's because the last time I went was very traumatic! I went to a dentist that I had never been to before but was the only one that my state insurance would pay for. I had 4 cavities (I have very very thin enamel) and they filled them with out giving me anything to numb me! Yes thats right they drilled into my 4 teeth with out Novocaine no laughing gas nothing! So yeah I was terrified to ever go back! Well in the 4 years since I went, that dentist has gone out of business and the insurance has given me a new place to go. Now hopefully they will be kind with me but the only reason I am overcoming this HUGE fear of the dentist is because I'm in soooooooooooo much pain! I'm telling you I have been living on tylenol and using ice packs 24 hours a day!

Moira's first solo ride!


So I finished skunket last night (was up till midnight because of the escaping child).
So I took a quick photo of her she already got loved on and I'm not happy with the pattern, they have you knit it flat and I HATE to sew seams if I don't have to. So I'm going to tweak the pattern and knit it in the round and show you skunket 2.0 ;o)
We went to the birthday party today, and the kettle with veggies and a chicken was a HUGE hit!! She has been caring her broccoli around all day ;o) I'm glad she liked it as much as I liked making it! She inspired the designer in me! Next up I'm going to design a fruit salad kit.
On other happy but makes me cry a little inside news, Moira road her tricycle all by her self today! She is growing up so fast, first escaping the crib and now riding a bike! I feel like she is going to be asking for the keys to the car next lol.
They can't stay little forever no mater how much we wish it.
