For starters, there is a new rule in our house---NO DRINKS OR FOOD OUTSIDE THE KITCHEN.
This would be after Gracie knocked over not one, but two very full drinks in the past 24 hours. Last night it was her chocolate milk from a kids meal that I let her eat at the blue table in the living room. This morning it was my full glass of Dt. Pepsi that she knocked over with her horse-on-a-stick. I got soaked, and a little upset. The new rule was immediately put in place. Actually, I will be the one who will have to watch myself very closely--I am bad about taking a drink in to the living room or having a snack on the couch.
On a completely different note; Gracie got her first nose bleed today. I was remarkably calm as I dabbed it clean with a tissue. I knew right away it was from allergies, as Garren gets these all the time. There wasn't much blood, but I am hoping that these episodes will be few and far between. They say this is actually a record bad year for pollen. Great!!!
