We just got back from my parents house. I was a 7 hour drive in mostly rain, but it was actually a nice drive. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I did. My only question is, who came and messed up my house while I was gone? If you did it, will you please come over and clean it up, because I don't remember my floors needing swept this badly. I am off to take a long soak with a tall stack of magazines and a thick book.

It is raining leaves. It is just beautiful and magical. I wish I was a better writer so that I could adequately describe the scene. It is also raining. I love the rain except if I have to go somewhere. Then, I hate the rain. I love to cuddle up on the couch with a book and a hot/cold drink and a quilt and listen to the thunder and the rain drops. I do not like feeling soggy and damp.

On other news, the other two teeth have came in and things are going better. I guess it was a teething issue. I still clench every time in case he bites, which he has still done a few times, but things are definitely better. When he bites, I take him off and tell him no and try not to smile at his cute face. He thinks I am being funny, I guess, but he always smiles big at me and his little teeth and dimples are too cute to be upset with.

My daughter, Lillian, who just turned four, has discovered online games. Everyday she comes and asks if she can play a game on the computer. So far it has been Noggin games which are cute and easy enough. If anyone knows of some good preschool games or preschool friendly websites, let me know so she can switch it up a bit.

I am trying to still nurse Isaac, who is now 8 months old and who has two very sharp teeth and two more coming in, but really, I am starting to look down the road and wonder if I can keep it up. I don't remember being this sore with Lillian when she was teething. I am going to stick it out for a little while longer and see if maybe we are just at a difficult time. If maybe in a week or few weeks I will hardly remember it. It can't last forever. That is what I keep telling myself. What happens, though, when those other two teeth come in?
