AFM: I'm in the 2WW...I'm guessing I Oed on Thursday. Telling myself that I WILL NOT TEST UNTIL MONDAY!!! Yep I was yelling that at my self. We've DTD everyday or at least every other day for a week+, so we have a good shot at it this cycle.

**********

I'm thinking of still trying to have a weekly question, so

THE QUESTION OF THE WEEK this week is:
What birthday themes have you done for your kids?

My oldest will be 4 very soon and we are doing a Army/Solider/Camo theme. He picked it out MONTHS ago and has talked about it since. He LOVES birthdays!! If you have any good ideas, throw them at me!

My Mood:
Hi ladies, can I join you? My husband and I have decided we'd like another baby but we've never tried, never will. I dont monitor cycles right now other than length of total cycle. When we avoid, I chart everything.

It's been a casual month, I have another week until I'm expecting a period and well take it a month at a time.

I'm still nursing my 15 mo old, though she sleeps through the night and I've conceived twice befor while nursing.

Truth be told, I'm giddy excited about the possibility if another kiddo, I absolutely love our kids!!

Re: NTNP - Monthly Thread APRIL

Yay! Hi Macy! I'm sure you don't recognize/remember me, and I promise I'm not a stalker, it's just nice to see someone from "back in the day" who isn't mainstream. Good luck with NTNP!

LOL!! Sometimes we just need to yell at ourselves. Good luck this cycle!

I think the weekly question is fun.
We had very low-key birthday parties growing up, but I enjoy doing themes for my kids. Nothing big, but I like letting them choose a theme and doing little things to go with it. You won't find me blogging about all of our matchy-matchy birthday extravaganza though. lol
Anyway, DD1 has done Care Bears, Dora, Easter/bunnies (her bday is March 28, so occasionally it's really close to Easter), Hannah Montana, Princess, bowling, and purple. lol I'm missing two.
DS has had a bear shaped cake for his first, Spiderman, Cars, Toy Story (Mr. Potato Head cake), Bee. And I'm missing one of his.
DD2 had a pink 1st birthday and will have dogs this summer for her second.

The camoo/army/soldier sounds fun! I know I've seen camo cupcakes that would be easy to do! My DS was like that with his bee party last year. He picked the theme at the beginning of the year and stuck with it all the way, and his birthday is in August!

Welcome!! That kind of sounds like us right now, I'm just charting CD1, but do very casual watch CM and sometimes position if I think O might be close. I'mnursing my almost 10 month old. He's still very attached. But is STTN...mostly.

My partys are not Pinterest/Blog worthy for sure! But DS1 thinks they are DA BOMB! And who else cares?! I plan to do cupcakes, I've bought 80 green and brown Army men already....we should be able to do something with all those and I bought him a little Army uniform, it's awesome!!

And I should answer the QOTW too shouldn't I?
DS1: Pooh, Bob the Builder, Firemen Sam ()
DS2: Dogs, Race cars/Corvettes
DS3: TBA

We've since banned Firemen Sam, the little brat on there Norman was being a awful influence. Everything was, "Norman did it", so we said good bye to Norman!! He's still totally into firemen in general though.

We've only had one birthday so far and the theme was the zoo, which basically meant I made an animal themed cake/cupcakes and many of his gifts were zoo or animal themed like the zoo little people stuff, puzzles, etc. I wanted to do all the decorations and stuff, but I had to feed 20 people for the party and it was literally five days (yes, that's right, 5!!!) after we moved into our new house (also the third time we moved that year). DS is the first grandchild in both sides, so his first birthday was a big event .

AFM: I'm pretty sure I had a chemical pregnancy this cycle. I'm now on cd 4.

My iDevices are out to get me. Please excuse mistakes.
