Caleb's language

Please disregard the animal abuse that appears to happen... she probably deserved it anyway. :) (He didn't actually hurt her. She was growling at the open windows and passing cars.)

In other news, I got my official letter from the real estate commission telling me that my license is on inactive status. Now if we could just get moved and settled in a new place I could start working.. well maybe I'll wait a bit longer, like after baby girl is born.

I passed!

I finally took my real estate license exam this morning and I passed! My deadline was coming soon in November so I had to take the test now or never. After failing two practice exams I wasn't at all confident about how I'd do, but the test was easier than I expected. (And way esier than the practice tests!) I'm glad I did some last minute cramming last night, because a LOT of things I learned last night were on the test today. I guess it was worth not getting much sleep. My next step is to find a broker to sponsor me and activate my license so I can start working. I'm not sure if I should go ahead and jump in here, or wait and see if we get to move to Tyler anytime in the next few months. Then there is also the problem of finding drop-in occasional childcare for Caleb.

You can call me Mrs. Real Estate Mama now! ha

So I had a strange/gross thing happen today... I got thrown up on by a toddler... and it wasn't my own child. GROSSSSSSSS. I have never had to deal with kid puke before... so I didn't know what to do! What frustrated me was the other teacher ran into the other room to get away from the smell.. leaving me holding a puking baby and five other kids standing there watching. Oh and there was gagging happening too... Luckily, it was 15 minutes to pickup time so I didn't have puke on my shirt for too long... as soon as I got home I took a shower and felt much better. But GROSSSSSSSSSSS!

Happy Hot October

I can't believe it's October and it's still 90s outside. I guess it's payback for a mild summer.. just dragging it out for a higher average for the year. (In my finance brain that makes sense).

Preschool rocks! Now that we are in cribs, the kids actually sleep! Today, Caleb even slept in his crib in our room. It was simply amazing. It may have helped that he's on drugs for a sinus infection, but he was so pleasant all day (not that he's not lovely all the time) and he didn't have his paci except for sleeping times. A miracle! Starting tomorrow, no more pacis besides to sleep with. Today was a turning point on that. And I got to thinking, if he's not totally off them by the time baby girl gets here, it will be even harder for him to give it up if he sees little sister sucking on one. So that's the new goal. No more pacis by the arrival of little sis. Potty training can wait, and so can a big boy bed, but the paci has to go! Now I need the will power....
