Maddie has been a little cranky today and has taken two naps, which she basically never does. I think it's just from being at the beach yesterday and not taking a real nap, so she needs to catch up on some sleep.
I have been busy with schoolwork! I have a huge project that counts as my midterm grade due next Thursday that I am kind of stressing about. And I have to study for a midterm that is on Monday. So I probably still won't be on the computer too much for this week.

Tomorrow I'm taking Maddie to get her summer pictures taken at JCPenney. I haven't gotten her pictures taken since Easter so this time she'll be able to stand. She loves getting her picture taken by people other than me so I'm sure they will come out cute. I'm enrolling Maddie in a local Play/Music class that meets every Tuesday for an hour. This Tuesday is our first class so that should be fun. I've also been thinking (more like stressing about) putting Maddie in daycare within the next month or two. I don't know. I put in to get information on one daycare over the internet so they might call me tomorrow. And I'm debating on whether or not I shold call a few daycares tomorrow. I knew I most likely wanted to put her in daycare sometime next year. I am thinking about starting her off earlier than that for possibly 3 days a week. I would try to get all morning classes for school and put her in daycare those days I was in school. But I really don't know how everything works and I need to find out if I can get any financial aid for it. I know there is something out there through the government but I think you have to make very, very little to qualify for that. And I want to put her in a good daycare, I have money in my savings that I can use towards that but I don't want to blow right through it. I know that some daycares have financial aid to help you out and that church daycares have financial aid also. So I guess I just have to look more into it and decide whether or not it is the best thing right now or if I should wait. So we shall see! Well, I guess that is about it for right now. I'll end this post with a few pictures of Maddie playing with her Little People Village.

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
I have not neglected my diet for this past week and a half.
I definately did not do something as dumb as heat up left over ziti in the aluminum container with its paper cover in the microwave. No way!!
It then did not burst into flames and burn the microwave because I would never put aluminum and a paper cover in the microwave.
I then did not get extremely irritated at my little sister for saying over and over again "That is mommy's ziti you burnt. That's mommy's leftover ziti from the restaurant" while I was trying to put out flames. So I did not yell at her to shut-up as the fire alarms were going off in the house. I would never get that irritated.
When everything was done and over with and all the windows were open in the house because it stunk I most certainly did not wish I took a picture of the burnt dish so I could post it on my blog for a Not Me post. That would just be weird!!

She lifts her shirt up in front of people sometimes. I'm not sure why, it kind of weird. She did it in fromt of her cousins when we went down to Miami last month also.
As for me, I'm still here being a mommy, studying, working. I've gotten my closing shifts back at work. I only work Wednesday nights, Friday nights, Saturday nights and Sunday mornings. I haven't been closing a whole lot but this week and the week coming up I have all closing shifts so thats much needed because I make more money that way. But of course this Wednesday coming up is my friend's birthday and I told her I would be out by 8:30, 9:00 and that I would meet up with them. I looked at my schedule and I have a Wednesday night closing shift for the first time in months. I want to go but I don't know if I will because I have class at 8:30 the next morning so we shall see.
As far as school.t is still going good. I'm trying to get an "in" at a school nearby because I have a few things coming up in my classes that it would help if I could get into a class and do observations of the students. I asked Maddie's speech therapist if she could somehow get me into the Montessori school that is right next to my house since she has therapy with one of the little boys there. She gave my the number and told me a little about the owners. One thing she said is that they are little weird about people coming in. I'll call tomorrow and see what happens. I'm doing a project and I want to do it around the Montessori classroom set up and curriculum and I've heard that that Montessori school is a legitimate one. So we'll see what happens.

Here are some pictures of her having a conversation with Sammy the other day...
Maddie did something today I have never seen her do before. My mom went into the garage and Maddie followed her, grabbed a tub of play food and carried it out of the garage. She sat in the living room and played with it. I was laying on the couch and she was standing beside me with a plastic spoon and one of her little plastic blocks that is in the shape of a cylinder that has a dip at the top and bottom of it. She then took the spoon and "bowl" and pretended to feed me. I've never seen her pretend with anything like that! Except hugging and kissing her babydoll thats the first time I have seen her play like that. I know it's a small thing but I love watching her do new things.

Maddie was kind of tired and cranky. I ended up putting her in the carseat about 15 minutes before the firework started. My mom was saying that she was going to be scared but I took her out to watch the fireworks anyway and she wasn't scared. We were far enough that they didn't phase her. She seemed to like looking at the "lights". And when the finale began I pointed to it and she looked and smiled, clapped and said yayy.

(Don't mind her wild hair.)
Look at those long strides.

...I cut me out because I looked weird but I thought Maddie had a cute/silly face on.
To see a few more pictures like these click here.
It's late and I am basically babbling so I'm gonna call it a night and go to sleep. Tomorrow (well not really tomorrow more like when I wake up) Maddie's speech therapist is coming, I have an eye doctor appointment and then work.
