On a lighter note...

Whew...that last post was kind've heavy so I thought I'd lighten it up a bit. I'm supposed to be paying bills, which I was also supposed to do yesterday and the day before. Unfortunately, my computer hasn't been cooperating. You see, my 3 month old brand new Dell Laptop needs a new hard drive. Yes a completely new hard drive. So, Charlie has finally won his argument - Apple must be better than this. And Vista is just a MESS. We will definitely be getting a Macbook the next time we purchase a computer! Ughhh...so frustrating. So my new hard drive will be here Tuesday and until then its touch & go w/ this crazy computer. Today it was finally cooperating but chase.com says my checking account is unavailable. Now I am convinced that this is obviously a sign that I should just spend our paychecks on a bubble for Avery. Yes, a bubble. Bubble girl (that I work with) asked me if I was buying Avery a bubble for her birthday. The more I thought about that the more I thought about googling baby bubble to see if any such thing existed. I mean, just imagine, it could be temperature and germ controlled. I could zip Avery up in her bubble and head into Target! We could have a normal birthday party at some fun, exciting place with lots of people and snotty nosed kids and coughing grandparents. Everyone would be welcome...imagine the possibilites. So, I am completely in favor of purchasing a bubble. Take that, Bubble Girl.

***CPS Disclaimer: In no way would I ever actually intend to put my child in a bubble.***

In other news, Avery has finally outgrown her small bathtub that I put in the sink, so she has been upgraded to a big, yellow inflatable duck that quacks. And it was a HUGE hit. She splashed and played and talked - she had the best time. I might need to invest in some kneepads, lol, but other than that it was so much fun! And here are some pics to prove it...

I'm sorry but that person you work with is awful. What a horrible thing to say. I'm glad Avery loves her duck tub.

Who is 'bubble' girl? Avery is too cute in her duck tub! I have recently started putting Addy in the 'big' tub. BTW - they have those cushion kneelers to go by the tub. I am thinking of getting that & that frog contraption that holds soap, toys, etc.

Haha too cute! I really can't believe someone would be so rude. I know several full term babies that got rsv this year so being over cautious is not a bad thing with all the little germ carrying kids roaming the earth. You should photoshop a pic of Avery into a bubble and put it on your desk and act like you really did put the child in one and tell the girl it was such a great idea;).

I love these lasat few post too. And about the knee thing...several years ago I found (I think...at Dollar Tree) a knee pad that is used for gardening...also perfect for cleaning tub as well as bath those little ones. LOL Funny, but I keep it by the time and get it out when I need it. Used it last night for Natalie's bath!
