Why I haven't posted fridge pictures alternate title: Sicky Nikki

Friday night we had a ward activity-- complete with Easter egg hunt for the little kids and dinner and desserts for all.  I didn't have much to eat (like two bites) because I was juggling Peach and feeding Squdge at the same time as trying to keep him [Squdge] from falling off the picnic bench and Hammy from overdosing on jelly-bean topped cupcakes.

The rest of the kids were also having a great time-- as was Danny.  I had fun talking to a fellow mom who shares many of the same parenting philosophies as myself.

When it came time to go, I had a van full of content kids (with the exception of one ready-to-nurse Peach) and bags of plastic eggs with jelly beans, m&ms, tattoos, and fruit snacks waiting to be discovered inside.

We headed further into town to pick up a new light for Danny's little blue car from the local Auto Zone. 

I was feeling good about our accomplishments. 
  • Attended a ward activity and no one got lost or pooped their pants. 
  • Bought the bulb for Danny's car so he doesn't get ticketed. 
  • No one was complaining or bickering.
And then I had a weird feeling.  It felt like... hunger.  So we visited the Taco Bell drive-thru on the way home.  I bought my absolute favorite:  The Steak Quesadilla.  And in two miles, tops, it was gone.  And I felt sick.  and strange.  and hot.  and freezing.  and regretted my severely fast scarfing of it.

By the time we got home, I was convinced that it wasn't the hunger, or the over-stuffed-ness.  I took my temperature.  103.7  Whatever it was, I felt validated for feeling the way I did.  do.

I'm sorry you're sick! I am learning now just how horrible it is to be sick with multiple children at home. I hope you get feeling better very soon. But I admit--I love your description of the ward activity. It sounds like many I have been to in my life.

HI, my name is Crystal and I'm a friend of your sister, Erin. She was in my ward in Hawaii and she actually took my engagements, maternity, and newborn pics here. She is pretty sweet. Anyways, I came to your blog from hers and noticed the baby wipes. I'm about to have Baby #2 in August, and Baby #1 is only 13 months. I would love to do the baby wipe thing since I will have two kids under the ages of 2 in a few short months, but I was just wondering if you've ever done the math of how much you actually save making baby wipes this way? I actually just did my first attempt at making them, but how do you package them when you go out? Or do you just use them at home? What's the best way? And just to clarify, if I don't use them in a week that means I'd need to trash it right? Or will I most likely be using them all in a week? So sorry for all the questions, if you could email me back, that'd be great!
