The MSN Mom's Homeroom site has a lot of great tools and resources that will come in especially helpful for the new school year that has just begun. Are you having questions about spelling, composing sentences, motivation to write or another type of writing question? You should check out Articles & Tools--there is a lot of great information for us moms to read to gain tools that are useful to assist our children with.
There's also a community area which is like a forum for moms to help one another with. I love this area--where moms can talk and have discussions with one another to help each other and support one another.
Being a mom is hard work--but it's also extremely rewarding. Thank you to MSN Mom's Homeroom for making and maintaining this useful site. I hope many moms will use this when they need a creative way to help their child learn.

She loves that episode sooo much.
Love is actually and understatement....she is obsessed. For real.
All day I hear, "Ow-ween! Ow-ween, Mommy! Dora Ow-Ween!"
She came up to me saying "Ickereat!"...
I'm now wondering what will be next.
Hopefully she won't want to watch my scary movie collection with me...

*Went and got some new Clinique makeup yesterday...love, love, LOVE it. Wow.
*Also stopped by Old Navy and hit up their sale. I bought some cute v-neck tees (4 to be exact), a lace cami (ca-uute!) and then a tee for Leo. All for $31 and some change. Love their sales! Especially on things that I'll be wearing at home with the girls each day.
*My memory lately has been crap. I can't remember anything--walking into a room, I forget what I was doing, what movie I watched the nite before...you name it. I forget it.
*I'm so happy to be
*Leo goes back to work on Monday. Crap.
*I still haven't read my Mary Kay Andrews book...I've read some, but when I'm not not busy around the house I'm reading blogs, on Facebook catching up or blogging.
*Got my Nikon D40 book for Dummies. Lets just say I am sooo happy I bought this book. I can't wait to take pictures with what I've learned.
*Speaking of taking pictures, that's on the top of my list for tomorrow. I've been really bad about it. So, that's priority over everything tomorrow. Well, almost everything....
*Getting my hair cut next month. Not sure whether to keep it long or cut it. Decisions, decisions...I know...
*Madelyn is still doing wonderfully. Sleeps (most of the time) like a champ, eats like a champ and is just a great baby. Isabella is doing much, much better--she adores her sissy and loves to help me out. What a great big sister!
*Isabella went potty on her potty chair Saturday nite! What a big, big girl! She hasn't done it again, but she has been reading lots of books on her chair. I am hoping this is a promising sign that soon she'll really be ready to really, really try to potty train.
*Been feeling somewhat domestic again. I made crock-pot meat loaf on Sunday nite. Monday nite I'm making a chicken recipe I found in my Real Simple subscription a few months ago that I have yet to make. And Tuesday? I'm making an enchilada casserole... Crossing my fingers that they're both delish!
*Called the gymnastics place to get Isabella enrolled in their fall classes...they should be calling me back tomorrow. I can't wait to get her enrolled! I think she's really going to love it.
*I think it's been decided that Bellers wants a Dora party. That's her obsession. Ah, to be 22 months again...
*Thinking about getting her hair cut. What do you think? Do it or wait for awhile?
*Did I mention Leo is going back to work on Monday....here's hoping this week is a good one without him here all day

**Leo and Isabella took Leo's daughter, Ashley, back to Houston this weekend. Madelyn and I stayed behind. I cleaned, napped, read magazines, read part of my book...just basically relaxed all weekend. It was nice to have some quiet time and time to just rest. I feel well rested and I'm so ready to see my Bellers!
**Due to them being gone I have survived on cereal (Golden Crisp--it's yummy and fat free!), coffee and Diet Coke all weekend. I threw in a granola bar or Pop-Tart (now that's healthy) here and there, but mainly the cereal was my food of choice. Does anyone else do that if left home alone? Or am I just weird?
**Looks like things (aka tropical storms, etc) are just starting to get exciting over in the Atlantic. Three tropical storms right now...it's the season for hurricanes--now I'm just hoping they all stay clear of where we live...
**I'm less than 10 pounds away from my pre-Madelyn weight---yeah!! Now if I can just get down to my pre-Isabella weight--I'll be sooo happy! Isabella and I take long walks around the neighborhood at nite, so I'm really excited she gets home today so we can take our walk. I'm hoping to start running again. I say again, but it's been so long since I've ran. I'll let ya know how that goes.
**I'm super excited because we'll be driving to Mobile this week to do some shopping since our Target isn't open yet. We'll also hit up Toys R Us and possibly even Kohl's. I want to get Bella's birthday presents--I can't believe she'll be 2 in less than 2 months. Where has the time gone?!

I walked up to Leo and asked him, "Can you hold this?"
And I handed him Madelyn.
Um, I so meant can you throw this dirty diaper away...
Not can you hold this--with "this" being Madelyn.
I think I need some sleep...

I really want to write you this letter to document all of your amazing baby behaviors so far. I have been mesmerized by you since the day I met you. It's like this rush of love came and flooded me and I love it. Everything about you makes me smile more, laugh more and best of all?
You are such an amazing baby.
You are so mellow and calm that I sometimes worry if you are okay! You rarely cry--and when you do it's usually because of something that Isabella has done to you (don't worry, I know she doesn't mean it. She just doesn't understand yet--although she is getting better each day!).
Your sleeping habits? I'm still amazed!
For a little one who kept me awake so much during my pregnancy at nite you are definitely letting me start to catch up now.
Like last nite? You woke up just for your paci and didn't wake us up until 5 to eat. I was shocked! And proud of you at the same time.
Now lets talk about eating...girlfriend, you were made to be an eater! You take the bottle like a champ--you literally chug it and gulp it down.
Take today at the doctor's office--a few important pieces of information for the Madelyn record books.
1) You have gained 1 pound (on the dot) and 1 inch (again, on the dot) in your two weeks and one day of life outside of the womb. The ped? Was so impressed with those stats, honey!
2) At your hearing test you were hungry (surprise surprise, honey!) and the doctor performing your test cracked up at my little piglet chugging away. She asked me if there was tequila in your bottle--although personally? I don't know too many people who chug tequila...
I love you so much, Miss Madelyn Reese. I know how blessed I am to have you as my little girl.
I want to raise you to be a loving, caring and compassionate girl. One who is able to forgive people, share with others and as someone who knows how truly lucky they are to be in such a loving home.
I love you, sweetheart, and thank you for the 2 amazing weeks so far. I'm looking forward to so many more with you.
Your proud and adoring Mommy
