I Almost Got Away With It

My three year old has realized that sleeping is just a big waste of time when there is never ending Caillou on Netflix. This has made bed time very challenging.  Last night she refused to put her pajamas on so I decided to “pick my battles” and let her sleep in her T shirt and shorts. This morning, I was running late (as usual) and of course she just wouldn’t wake up. I finally thought to myself, she’s technically dressed so what if it’s the same thing she wore yesterday?  Although I still felt kind guilty that I wouldn’t be changing her my stress level dropped as I now didn’t have to fight her and would probably be able to leave the house in ten minutes or so.

I scooped her up and brought her downstairs, I sat her down at the table as I had picked up some pancakes from McDonalds ( she loves pancakes) on my way back from the gym.  I stepped away for a moment and then heard her saying “mama open..mama open” I looked over and she was waiving the packet of maple syrup over head asking me to open it. But guess what? It was already open and seeping out the sides, down her arm, her shirt and her shorts. AUGHH!

Needless to say, she not only required a change of clothes but a complete wipe down with a wet towel. You don’t realize how sticky that stuff is until you are trying to remove it and trying to catch the train  to work at the same time.

Oh well I almost got away with it.

Blogging on the GO

I downloaded the WordPress app on my Android phone last night and tried it out for the first time today.

Let’s start with what I love about it:

  1. You do not need to be connected to the internet to use it. You can write your blog, store it locally and once you have an internet connection you can sync and publish.
  2. It’s very easy add a picture. No searching for menus. Just tap the camera icon on the bottom right hand corner and either take a new pic or upload one from your phone.
  3. You can access your stats, notifications and manage comments very easily.

The problems I ran into:

  1. Typing over 5 words on my qwerty board made me feel like I had “big green sausage fingers” (points if you can tell me where that’s from) and I made a lot of typos.
  2. I ran into a problem formatting the picture I uploaded and couldn’t figure out how to fix it. I had to delete it and reload.

Overall I am very happy with the app and I’m writing this on my phone right now. Only this time I will take a look at it on my computer before I hit publish ( to avoid the typos)

Late addition;

As I was trying to save this above post I hit what I thought was “save” and instead published an unformated, typo ridden blog!  Aughh. I had to kick my daughter off the computer just as Caillou was going to the park with his dad. So now here I am trying to fix what my App messed up ( yes my app I’m not taking the blame for this one)  while my 3 year old is crying for Caillou. I still love the app but I need more practice.
