Squash and other news

I never knew my child could make such interesting faces! I wish I had pictures to back this up! Alas, two nights ago I cooked up a squash, ground it up, and fed it to Cory. He was so much more interested in Daddy and the camera that I don't think he even noticed what he was eating. Last night, sans camera, I thought he was going to die. Literally, at one point I thought he was choking he was making such gagging noises and had his face all screwed up. So I quickly gave him some water and then thinned out the squash some more. No such luck. When it was completely runny he still acted like he was gagging. And the faces, oh, I wish we could have gotten them on camera. I was laughing so hard I had to take a break between his bites. But after about 5 bites with most of it running down his chin and onto the bib I gave up and made him some cereal.

Now, for all those pictures I should have gotten (and the thousands I already have) 5 minutes for Mom is giving away a portable hard drive by Western Digital! Wouldn't this just be nice in case my unreliable computer actually does decide to bite the dust! Too bad they cost $200.

Also in the news: I will be getting a new template for my blog soon! I'm super excited! It's being designed by Goofy Girl and will have pictures at the top! Plus not so much blank space on the sides so you don't have to scroll as often to read my posts. Did I mention I'm super excited?!!
I've also been accepted to a group called BlogHer ads. So once I get switched over you might start seeing one ad in a sidebar as well as some links to other women's blogs that are part of the network. I don't really have any control over the links so please forgive me in advance if they're not something you wanted to read/see. But I will get a little money from the ads as kind of a side income - to pay for my scrapbooking habit!
Aaaaaand! I just sent in my paperwork yesterday to become an Educational Consultant for Discovery Toys! This is a home party based business that sells educational (yet, totally fun) toys for kids though elementary school. So if anyone reading this is within oh, say 45 minutes to an hour drive of Wenatchee and is interested in hosting a party, let me know! All profits from this business will probably go right back into buying said toys for Cory... :)

Oh, and does anyone want a medium size container of cooked, unseasoned squash? 'Cuz you know, we don't really like it either...


  1. Two and a half hours seems like a long drive to deliver squash leftovers, so I think I'll just cook my own. Though that would mean getting to visit with a cute baby!

    Found you through cre8buzz and am truly enjoying reading about your family.

    I can't wait to hear how the Discovery Toys thing goes for you. I understand about putting the money right back into said toys. That's exactly what I would end up doing. I used to work at a stationery store and, to this day, I'm not sure if I broke even.

    So many cool things happening for you right now... well, maybe not the squash, but you did get to see some great faces (I love those faces when my kids make them)!

    I'm looking forward to hearing of your adventures with Discovery Toys... that's one party business I've considered... I just don't know if I have it in me to sell.

  4. Ah, a man after my own heart! To this day, I can't eat any kind of squash without a gag reflex... :-)

  5. Thanks so much for your comment the other day! I've enjoyed reading about your family. I was so confused since the first post was part of Blog took me a bit of reading to figure it out.

    Also read your post about what to say after a miscarriage. I never know what to say either.
