Yesterday & Today's Events

Today is Open House at Calista's school. Brandy will be picking me and Ursula up so that we can go since we still have no car!

Calista brought home her 2nd 6 wks report card. She got the honor roll :) 3.5 gpa. She had all A's and S's except for math... but, I've seen her tests... she skips some problems... probably due to her trying to go too fast. And that causes her to have B's instead of A's. No biggie though. And this time, she only had a B in conduct in one of her classes.

For Christmas... I'm thinking of getting one of those interact TV thingies for them. Either the Fisher-Price InteracTV DVD Learning System (ages 3 to 8) or the Fisher-Price Read With Me DVD System (ages 3 to 7). To aid in reading and stuff. Calista told Jeremy she wants fish. So, the other day, he said he's buying her a fishtank. yay... more animals...

Seeing how much Ursula LOVES playing with her baby dolls and even that one teddy bear, I bought something off of eBay for her. I KNOW she'll love it! Its a Princess baby doll swing. The swing can be removed and used as a backpack doll carrier too! Which is great because Ursula loves putting things on her back... even a real carseat! She'll put her baby doll in there, strap them in, and then get behind it and use the straps to put it on her back and walk around with it like that! So, I know she'll just love what I bought for her! In addition, I think it'll help her once our baby is born... she'll have something to occupy her and let her nurture her mothering instincts while I'm tending to Wyatt.

Its not that I was looking for a baby doll swing, I was actually looking for a baby doll snuggli or backpack carrier. I swear, baby doll gear is so frickin' expensive! So, when I found that swing/carrier combo at the price I got it for, I couldn't pass it up. I'm probably going to sew her a Maya wrap type of baby carrier too... I have some old 100% cotton jersey knit sheets to use for that. I was thinking of using them to make one for myself as well :D I think my little baby will like it.
