Texas Tornado and a Winter Wonderland

My daughter is officially everywhere. She is like a tiny, blond octopus who is hell bent on insuring that my living room floor never sees the light of day. I have no idea what about the toilet holds her attention and captures her imagination, or why all of the toilet paper must be on the floor, all the books must be off the shelf and all of the DVDs out of their boxes and scattered about. Not only is she a tiny whirlwind of energy, but she is learning to argue and throw fits. At 10.5 months. Not fair!! Or, if you ask my mom, payback. We actually had our first mother/daughter argument today. I told her "no! no!" and she looked at me, nodded her head and turned back to what she was doing. Sometimes you just have to laugh to keep from running away from home screaming.

In other news, we got a fair amount of snow this week. Enough so that very silly snowmen were popping up around the neighborhood and Oliver got beaned by a snowball. It was fun to watch the kids sled down their driveways and see all the animal tracks. However, Oliver wasn't too impressed with the sheer coldness of it, and begged to go inside about 10 minutes into it. Luckily, it only lasted another 14 hours before melting away (or evaporating - CT thinks snow evaporates instead of melting). I have no clue how people do it in foreign lands such as Minnesota or Illinois. Months of this stuff?? I was going insane after a week of being locked in the house with two snotty, coughing, and chilly children. One thing I have learned, I am NOT a stay at home mom. Even though I do not work, I am out almost every day at the library, park, running errands, play dating or going to museums. I have no clue how people actually stay home with their kids all day every day. This is not to say I don't love being a mom, I love my kids. I just love them more when they and I are stimulated by outside activities.

Logically, as Studio room possesses the Sounds Decline fuction, it's actually good excellent couldn't are actually much better than the products without having this fuction. Our own analyze success demonstrate that, nevertheless, this is often not quite pertinent during Monster earphones. The Dr. Dre Headphone Solo HD complete effectiveness with Monster Beats by Dr . Dre Business is greatly improved upon compared to Monster Solitary Harley-davidson. Exclusively, Beats by Dr . Dre Studio tasks quite fantastic around reduced consistency, in addition to bass guitar muscle and flexibility. Effortlessly, what's more, it performances somewhat superb during high consistency, as a minimum a category on top of the One High-definition. This can be all of our authorization of that overall performance connected with good first-class. Together with unquestionably Monster Beats Over Ear Beats by Dr . Dre School includes quite a few tiny defectiveness way too,surpasses by dre precious stone including, size plus low music during the course of core rate of recurrence would likely lose elements on the entire playing method. Nonetheless we are saying as a system primarily based entirely on style, it's not necessarily really worth quibbling over these modest weak point. With music decrease influence concerns, Beats by Dr . Dre School isn't going to symbol the actual a number of sound lowering really worth, and now we could not declare this is noise reduction rating. Even so, many of us move Beats by Dr . Dre Facilities music lowering level so that you can preceding typical.
