To answer the most popular question of late....the blow-up water slide was at my friend, Ashley's house - I asked her the same - "where did you get that?" It was bought over a year ago and she couldn't remember exactly because they shopped around - but either Toys-R-Us or Sam's. Their neighbors bought one last week similar to that one, so I know they are available right now. Check out the stores mentioned above and also maybe Academy Sports and Walmart.com - just some suggestions. If you have a place to use it AND a place to store it - I say go for it - the children have hours and hours of fun and it would be great for parties too! Our backyard is hilly and tends to get muddy, so we will not be purchasing one, but we hope to get invited back for more fun in the sun!
I'm going to open up the floor for more questions - I get questions from time to time from my 4 readers, but rarely do I remember to answer them - SORRY!!!! I'll try my best at this time to do so! If you asked before and not gotten a response back from me - ask again - I'm busy busy with work and 3 children and forget to go back to those comments and emails! Fire away!!!!
In other news, Wilson had his Failure to Thrive check up and it went okay. Does the term Failure to Thrive bring the same emotions to you as it does to me? I am a dietitian and I remember studying that in school and thinking it only applied to children who were neglected or lived in Third World Countries. Well, apparently not - he's been diagnosed since he was about 6 months old. He's simply off the charts in weight and height. At 3 months shy of turning 3 years old he's weighing in at a whopping 25 # 14 oz!!!! Go Wilson - he's consistently gaining, but at a very slow rate. He's a TERRIBLE eater, but doing better each day with much focused attention at meal times. But with all that, his little brother is a SUPER eater and weighs in at 17# 13 oz at 12 months - only a pound larger than Wilson at 12 months. SO, this begs the question, had Wilson been a great eater, would it have made any difference? We will never know. Hopefully they will just be late bloomers!!!!
Alrighty then, the floor is open!!!!
