Only one of my boys...

Yesterday Matthew lost a molar that had been loose for a few days, in a very boy way.
He had been playing "battle" with his friend J., and acted out the part of his own opponent, hitting him in the face. Yes, he punched himself in the face and knocked out his own tooth, and was quite proud of himself to boot! Boys.

The latest andrewventure....

Andrew flushed an apple down the toilet two days ago. He was peeing and took his apple in with him, peed on it, and decided since it had pee on it it needed to be flushed. Luckily Brian was able to snake it out, but not before ( amazingly calmly) telling Andrew that if we had to call a plumber because of him again he would take it our of Andrew's saving account. That boy.

Happy New Year

We had a wonderful, safe new year and hope you had the same.
I did overeat, and over eat the dairy, which brings me to an "update" about what my body has been doing the past few months.
Like so many Americans, I over eat. I over eat on healthier stuff than most- but I am way overweight.
However, this fall I started noticing that I was getting heartburn- often severe- if I ate at night. I first cut out nighttime snacks and when that didn't work, I tried starting in on the seconds of supper. I say tried because it works when I do it, but it's a struggle. Other things have been kicking my butt- dairy, too much sugar, alcohol drunk with any suger, or more than a single serving of aclohol. While listening to my body in these matters is hard, hard, hard, I feel it's a blessing!
I have also started exercising, and sticking with it! I am doing aerobics almost every morning ( unless I have to get out of the house early) and I keep hand weights around for when I am idle or my back hurts. Nothing helps my backaches more, especially since they are due to poor posture.
And the latest development- I have not been able to finish the last three coffe drinks I got from Starbucks, either soy or cow. I think I'll use the extra money for lead free makeup.
I have lost 12 pounds so far, and my "resolution" is to really cut out the dairy, be even better about avoiding seconds, and exercise even during my period.
