How is it possible....

I had the intention of updating my blog this weekend since Magellan really didn't have too much to do. However, someone else had other ideas, LOL!

It seems Miss Ella has hit the terrible two's, and need I remind you that she is ONLY 15 months old? I mean, is this a joke? AM I being punished for something I did? Come on God, help me out here! Her tantrums can be downright ridiculous. CJ always had some bad ones, but his did not really start till he was about 2 1/2 years old. Ella absolutely HAS to have her way at all times. And she makes it known when you aren't giving her her way. She will scream, screech, and wail and the throw herself on the floor if all else fails. The only thing I can do right now is to ignore her and walk away. I mean I can't really put her in time out, and I am NOT a big believer in spanking. Most of the time I believe it sends the wrong message, but we don't need to debate that subject. To each their own.

Besides the tantrum issue Ella has once again begun nap strike. The last four days have been pure hell. Just sayin'......I mean I might get about a 30 minute nap out of her in the morning and that would be it for the day. I have tried cutting out her morning nap, thinking she might be ready to drop it, but nooooooo. When I attemped that before our playdate on Friday, she napped for only 45mins total. And that was after being up for more than 4 hours too. You would think with her being my second I might have a clue but I really don't.

So back to two naps it is! We shall see what today brings, especially since the Princess was up at 530a! So NOT like her either. I can almost see her two bottom molars underneath the gums and Magellan thinks he sees her incisors coming in too. Oh the joys of teething.

CJ's last day of Gym class is today and he will be doing a final routine to show me and his teachers all that he has learned this semester. I can't wait to see him show off his stuff! I am going to try and remember my camera!! Then next week he starts dance class and gym class at the higher level. His teachers think he is DEF ready for a challenge so he needs to move up to the higher level.

As for me, I'm ok. I wish by now my wrist didn't hurt half as much as it does. Sadly I don't feel like it has healed much. I have some good days, but the bad/pain ful ones are far more common. Still keeping my fingers crossed for no surgery.

Magellan is almost done with New Paltz. I think two more weeks maybe....and now I don't know what I'm going to do with him home during the day again, LOL. I much prefer him being gone all day long so I can get things done around the house and not worry about having to be quiet. And for those of you wondering if he has stayed the helper he swore he would be....well take a good guess. I will give you three tries and the first two don't count. Let's just say he leaves a lot to be desired some days!

Well. gotta take CJ to school. Excuse my typos!!
