So here's how this went down. I'm at the computer wasting time on facebook like I always am these days when my youngest comes to me and says "look mom the money's gone. See??" He then opens his mouth really wide and points down his throat!!! me-"did you eat money?!" him-"yes!!!" He was very proud of himself. me-"you can't eat money, it's bad for you!!!" him-"it's bad?!" me-"yes" him-"okay mommy!!" and he walks away.
Not even two days later he comes to me again and says "look mom the money's gone. See??!"
So if my child comes running past you and it sounds like a piggy bank, you'll know why!!!! Maybe he's just really smart and realizes it's the best place to put money right now with the economy the way it is!!!
I'm kind of a mean mom. When my kids ask for something unnecessary like a fruit snack or a sticker I make them sing me a song or do a dance or some other form of mild humiliation. Today when my children asked me for string cheese I told them they had to shake their booty first. Cormac of course started shaking his booty and singing the song "shake your booty, shake your boooooooty." Isaac on the other hand started doing something a little different, he would stick his booty out really far and then jump and then finish with his booty out really far again. I said "wow, that's a new booty shake!!!" He said "yeah, it's better than your booty shake" me-"that's not very nice to say" him-"it's okay I still love you, but my booty shake is better than yours and you should start doing it my way."
I've been very torn these last few days because I HATE Kanye West. I think he's a moron and really annoying, and for those reasons I have avoided all his music. But then I heard Gold Digger and it just spoke to me, or maybe of me. Then I heard Stronger, again it just speaks to me and my head starts boppin and my hands start waving and the next thing I know I'm in a full on booty shake!!!
But, I managed to find one more thing to do instead of housework, or homework or anything of real value!!! I joined Facebook!!!! Yes, I'm already on myspace and I have this blog and I'm thinking of starting another. I have 2 email accounts and subscribe to various email lists (mostly to stores I can't quite afford). And that's generally how I spend my days. What are you going to do about it? That's what I thought. Now, go join facebook and look me up because I really need friends!!!
I got tagged and because I'm not a fuddy-duddy I'm gonna do it!! Here are the rules. All you have to do is go to your 6th picture album folder, pick the 6th picture and post it. After that, tag 4 friends.
Last night we did our annual pumpkin painting. I would really like to get away from the painting and start carving since we now have a house, however Isaac insists on painting. Here is what we created!!!
an artist at work!!
"I think I like this color because I'm sure it's the most difficult to get out of anything!!"
Our finished products. Here is what Isaac had to say about them "mommies is a clown, daddies is too scary and mine and Cormac's are just painted." By the way, both my children had nightmares about pumpkins last night. Way to go Jason, you just won father of the year!!!
I cannot even begin to count the number of times in the last week that Isaac has informed he is now a big boy because he is 5, but last nights explanation just takes the cake!!!! I was making him pick up his toys when he tells me "I don't need you to tell me what to do anymore, I'm 5 and I don't need your help. Big boys just have their own plans and ideas and their mommies don't need to tell them what to do anymore."
He also got a hold of my camera again. He takes the best self-portraits!!!
We had a fantastic weekend for Isaac's birthday!! I unfortunately (for me anyways) did not get alot of pictures. but believe me when I say we had a blast. It started with Isaac's actual birthday on Friday. My parents came into town especially for his birthday and it happened to be crazy hair day at school!! That night we had a BBQ where I made his favorite dish, lemon chicken, and then we opened presents. Let me tell ya this was bigger than Christmas!! Holy Cow is this little boy loved. He is completely decked out in Star Wars gear and he couldn't be more thrilled.
On Saturday we had his birthday party. We went to a place called Bounce U, they have all the blow up bounce toys, and we had an entire room to ourselves!!! I don't know if the kids had any fun but believe me, the adults had a blast!!!!
On Sunday we went to the Schnepf Farm pumpkin patch, and for all my Maryland readers, this place put Baughers to shame!!!! Isaac and Cormac rode their first roller coaster which was interesting. They had tons of fun rides and activities, the food was less than appetizing, but otherwise it was fantastic. Then of course we got to pick our pumpkins which was probably the boys favorite part. I unfortunately completely forgot my camera that day so I don't have any pictures, (lucky you).
My baby is 5 today!!! I can hardly believe how fast the time has flown. It seems like just yesterday he was my tiny baby (well, maybe tiny isn't the best way to describe it). But he was my baby, my first baby, and my first true love. He has been such a blessing to my life and our family. And of course here are some pictures of his life accomplishments.
You had a rough start to life but I think it just builds character!!!
about 4 months old, you were such a happy baby. All anyone had to do to get you to smile was look in your direction.
11 months, I miss those cheeks. And that gap between the teeth.
1st Birthday!! It was all about sports and balls!!
2, and it was all about the trains!!!
A new big brother!! 2 1/2
3yrs old!! This is when the major obsession with Monster Trucks really started.
4, and the obsession with dinosaurs began!!
Happy Birthday Big Guy!!!! Can't wait to see what 5 brings!!
I was picking out Isaac's clothes yesterday and I chose a dark blue one. He initially thought it was black, his favorite color, but then he saw that it was blue. He then says "you know what would be really cool mom? if I had a black shirt." And Yes I bought him a black shirt today!!!
Jason and I have been feeling a little itchy lately. We initially thought that maybe it was just a rash but then we realized it was much more serious, we've got the 7 year itch!!! That's right folks, Jason and I are celebrating our 7 year anniversary. Here are some pictures of those last 7 years!!!
