[chew it. chew it real good]

good golly!  my computer is slower than molasses these days!  wow, my nose has been stuck in The Help (i'm finally reading it) every spare minute i've got and i'm starting to sound like some a them southern women!

yeah, mac daddy has been bogged down for the last little bit, and it's driving me bonkers!  it takes the same amount of time to load one page as it takes me to eat a whole cookie.  okay, lets get real, i can woof down a cookie pretty dang fast if i want to :)  the point is, i'm spoiled.  i guess we all are.  remember what the internet used to be like?  good ol' dial up?  well, i'm so used to instant internet gratification.  and to be honest, i'm pretty bothered right now.  that little spinning color wheel telling me to hang tight is making me looney!  no wonder i haven't blogged for what seems like 5 days but it's only been 4 :)  ooh, the minny in me is coming out!

i'll stop whining now and get on with it...
 i'm pretty excited to share with you my favorite teethers!  these foam letter puzzles make the best chew toys for little ones!  i bought this one at the dollar store and little j man loves to sit and gum 'em to death.  if i remember right, my friend stephanie made this awesome discovery.  one day while she was at my house during one of annie's teething moments, she shoved one in her wee mouth and it worked like a charm!  I've sworn by them ever since. 
go on, give 'em a try!

  1. Count your lucky stars that your internet problems are just temporary. The internet is quite new here in Guinea, so it functions just about as good as a dial up connection, that is when it decides to work at all. I've gotten used to reading blogs with only half of the photos loaded (if that), and videos are out of the question. It took me a good 10 minutes to get your website to load. It's pretty miserable!

    Enjoy The Help. It is an excellent book!

  2. I just finished The Help yesterday. Thank goodness. Maybe now I can be productive again :) Loved it!

  3. anne, i will count my blessings! wow, it's so crazy to think you can read my blog when you're so far away! so cool! thanks for taking the time to visit-especially when it takes you so long to see anything :)
