    Congrats Inga! That’s great! Momkey, our daughter’s bday party is on Sat too. Have fun!

    Oh no! I hope she is ok. Has her fever gone down at least? Does she have any other symptoms like coughing or wheezing? Are the spots on her throat gone? If she is not eating, is she at least willing to drink plenty of liquids? Did they check her oxygen intake levels (with that little thing on her finger)?
    I hope she feels better soon!

    Not sure if this is too young for your boys, but this was the biggest hit hands down with my 4.5 and 2 year olds on our last car trip:

    http://www.amazon.com/Sesame-Street-Song-Book-International/dp/1412789958/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1405979133&sr=8-1&keywords=elmo+piano+book

    My 2 year old liked to just bang on the keys, but my daughter actually tried to play the songs, first based on the light up keys, then on the color-coded sheet music. The one downside is that they change the lyrics of popular children’s songs to be sesame street-specific.

    The second biggest hit was free road bingo I downloaded and printed. I gave each kid a square metal baking pan, a bingo sheet pasted onto cardboard, and some small magnets to use as markers so the markers didn’t fly around the car and the cards would be re-useable. The pans were also useful when she played with her dinosaur magnets.

    Hmm. Not sure I understand. If your husband lets the dog out, he must let him back in again before leaving if the dog is hanging out outside your bedroom door, no? Would it help if, like Momkey suggested, your husband dumped some dog food in the dog bowl before he left?

    OOO that’s a good idea! I wonder whether balloons would pop like a traditional pinata if the kids swung a wiffle ball bat at them? I was thinking I might be able to make a pinata out of paper mache, but this would be way easier!

    I like it too! I think Thessaly is also nice because I like the nn Tess or Tessa, but am not wild about Theresa as a full name.

    Wow! Great ideas! Thanks for all the research, PokeyNinja!

    for a fake snowball fight, but am torn on whether to buy them. The “snowballs” are not cold, but they are rough like snow and crunch like snow, and are apparently very light so they don’t hurt if you get hit with them. They are kind of pricey for a party game, although I suppose we could continue to use them after. All the people who reviewed them thought they are fantastic though. My concern is whether the other parents will be annoyed with an “aggressive” game. A lot of people around here don’t let their kids use even water pistols or anything similar, so I don’t know how they’d react to full on snowball war. What do you think?

    Pin the nose on Olaf is a good idea. I’ll have to look into that. As for cupcakes, I’d love to buy them, but they’d have to be nut free and egg free due to allergies. That would mean going to a super fancy vegan place where I’d sure they’d cost an arm and a leg.

    Congratulations on your new house! Being a new home owner must be exciting, but a bit overwhelming. If I were you, I’d probably break the house up into manageable chunks and only think about one chunk at a time. Like one day, you are going to clean inside all the cabinets in the kitchen – scrub them with some sort of cleaning spray and rags or paper towels. In the kitchen I like to use bleach spray, but if is probably horrible for the environment and has a really strong smell. Put contact paper in them after they dry if needed. Another day maybe do the counter tops and kitchen floor. Start with stuff closest to the ceiling and do the floors last since stuff is going to fall down on them as you clean. Don’t ever mix bleach with other cleaning supplies, since if they contain ammonia, the fumes can burn your lungs. On wood, just use a dust cloth, possibly with olive oil or a wood polish on it. On glass, use glass cleaner and paper towels or white vinegar and crumpled newspapers. On carpets, you can rent a carpet steamer. On sinks and bathtubs, you can use mostly dry baking powder or some abrasive cleaner like Ajax, and scrub with a brush, rags, or paper towels. On linoleum or tile floors, I usually use water mixed with ammonia and a mop or scrub brush (depending on how dirty it is), but probably just about any cleaner will do. They are remarkable interchangeable. Good luck!

    That is a good response! Based on her picture, though, I have to believe that the spray paint was done either by a admiring boy (and not meant to be an insult) or by a jealous girl.

    I like Nora and Delphine the best. Wouldn’t people would pronounce Delphine more or less the same with a French or English accent? Is it prounounced del-FEEN? I think if you are in an English speaking country, people will automatically pronounce Nora as NOR-ah though, so if that bugs you, you may want to skip it. Olivia, Beatrice and Simone are cute too.

    Ha! It could probably be done in a flash.

    Sorry. That was such bad awkward dad humor.

    ? What are you referencing? It looks like a word chain game with random posts by a beauty person in there.

    So glad he seems to be better! I hope I didn’t freak you out. I tend to worry (often unnecessarily) about medical stuff.

    I don’t have any new recommendations that i haven’t already posted here at one point or another, but I wanted to wish you a very happy belated birthday! I hope it was a good one.

    I like Katriel best as well. You must too since you listed it twice :-) First runner up is Emily, but I like Katriel better since Emily has been so popular for the past several years.

    Now that I look at your post again, it looks like you favor kind of spunky girl names like Tess and Eden. Some other options might be Jade, Quinn, or Paige.

    Rosetta is a pretty mn. It is simple but feminine and unexpected as a mn. How about one of these as possibilities?
    Jillian
    Caroline
    Juliet
    Vianne
    Lauren

    I think Caroline sounds particularly pretty with Rosetta. Good luck!

    What lists do you mean? For school supplies like pencils and binders, or do they give you a list of appropriate clothing as well? I was surprised to find that a lot of the elementary schools around here have dress codes that exclude even tank tops, the shoulders of kindergarteners being apparently so sexually provocative. No open toed shoes or sandals either although perhaps that is a safety thing. It’s hard in a place that is quite warm for most of the year though. We live in flip flops.
