Dragons

Apparently everyone wants a dragon nowadays. :) I guess it's been so ever since the Game of Thrones started. I might be one of few that doesn't watch it. I mean, I don't watch TV as it is and ever since the kid was born, I haven't had the time to watch anything on computer either.

But I did give Game of Thrones a try awhile ago and it just threw me off with all the drama and killings and incest.

Fun fact: Our capitol city Ljubljana in which I was born and raised, has a green dragon as a city symbol.

Marie Antoinette

Randomness:
  • I had to pull my kid out from daycare because it was too traumatic for him (and the rest of us) to even leave home to go there. He'll stay home for another year and if I get a job in between, my mom will watch him.
  • I'm trying out a new "diet" or rather lifestyle to lose weight and I'm down 3 kg in a week. It's called Whole Starch Low Fat Plan Based. The good thing is that I'm not starving myself and then binging. I was actually surprised how easy it is to eat this way.
  • hubby is buying a new car and is dragging me with him to check them out and I'm not feeling it in this heat.
  • I have to cut new ATC blanks because I ran out. I buy a block of large and thick watercolor paper that I have to cut into 2.5"x 3.5". Not a small task.
  • Marie's I made for a swap at ATCsForAll swapping forum.

Fish round robin

Round Robin is a set of 3 cards which one artist starts, send to another to add something to the set and then sends to the third artist to finish everything. Each artist keeps a card that's why there are 3 in a set.

This set was started with a trout by Linda4atc, BexMadeMe added the rocks and I finished it with the rest.

Update: The kid keeps crying when I take him to daycare. He tells me he doesn't want to go and starts crying at home. I don't know what to do anymore. I feel like I'm traumatizing him with this. Should I find another daycare? Should I wait another year? Or should I persevere and let him cry? I mean, who would like to go to work, if someone dragged you crying from home and left you there? He stayed there half an hour twice, an hour once and an hour and a half the last time, so it's not like I disappear on him for half a day. Still I feel like I'm doing him a disservice.

A couple of kitties

I started introducing my kid to daycare this week. I talked to him a lot and goodbye was not a problem. But when I came to pick him up after just 30 minutes, he was sobbing. I mean hardcore crying with hiccups.

Apparently all was well until another kid pushed him and then waterworks began. He didn't even want to leave his spare clothes in daycare. We had to go get them and take them back home.

Today is another day and we'll see how it goes.

Oh, boy

Ok, so. I was a really easy child for my parents to have. They can attest to that, especially since they had a lot of trouble and heartache with my older brother. I was very unproblematic in a sense I didn't get in too much trouble and I didn't get into accidents.

I was thinking of myself as a little girl, of how I ever went to the doctor's because of illness. Ok, I had a lot of trouble with ear infections until I got surgery at age 3 or 4 but other than that I was fine. And I thought to myself it must be a gender thing, right?! Girls are the good ones and boys are the "wild" ones.

Because here I am on Monday morning at the doctor's because my kid decided to drink antifreeze from the garage. Yes, you read that right. Anti- freaking- freeze!!!! He's been told before not to drink anything from the bottles in the garage. We put them high up anyway but just in case someone forgets, like that morning when hubby was emptying out the car and left an opened bottle of antifreeze on the ground, he knows he's can't drink it. But he did it anyway. Because he could open the bottle easily and it was pink and he's a 2-year-old.

Seriously kid?! You broke your collarbone when you were not yet a year and a half old and now you're drinking antifreeze at not yet two and a half. I can't even imagine what awaits me yet. He's a courageous little boy. He's not reckless. He holds on so he wouldn't fall but he's not afraid of anything. And I have a feeling this trait of his is going to send us to ER many times more during his childhood.

He's fine. No damage was done. And I'm here thinking how lucky my parents were to have had such an unproblematic child as me.
