What will he say next?

Isaac has been highly entertaining lately. He has this new attitude that I don't really know what to do with, but at least it's been good for a laugh. Here's some stories........

Jason had both the boys at the park and had apparently upset Isaac in one way or another. Isaac then identified some "puma tracks" in the sand and told Jason, "pumas eat daddies for dinner!!"
When asked what pumas eat for lunch he responded, "I don't know.......other animals"

After Cormac complained about a kiss I gave him Isaac said, "I'm an expert mom, and I know that babies don't like kisses. Only big boys like kisses." I'm glad he's so confident in his expertise.

Darn Yankees!!!

Isaac had is first T-ball game today, he did great. Not that he could have done bad, everyone gets a chance to hit every inning and the only thing you do when you actually get your hands on the ball is throw it to first base, and then the first baseman throws it to the coach at home plate. It was a lot of fun watching him though and he is so darn cute in his Yankees uniform!!

This picture is the aftermath of the mad dash to get the ball. No matter how hard the coach tries to keep the players in their spot, they all run to the ball. To quote one of the fathers "God Bless T-ball!"

Here he is waiting patiently for the batter to hit the ball. This one he actually got to first because he was "playing" pitcher.

Here he is running to home plate.

Here's his first ever official at-bat!!! We think he'll have a long career in baseball. But what do we know? We're just the parents that think he's perfect!!!

My awesome birthday weekend

I had a fantastic birthday weekend (yes, I celebrated all weekend long). Saturday I went to lunch with a group of friends, then went shopping and got a couple new shirts. Then I went and got a pedicure!!! When I got home there was a dozen red roses from Jason waiting for me. On my birthday, we went to breakfast at Joe's Farm Grill, (I ate for free!!!!). Then spent the morning and early afternoon relaxing, well I did anyways, Jason took care of the kids for me. Then Carla came over and Jason and I went to Pottery Barn for my shopping spree however, it did not go so well and I actually didn't buy anything. Then we went to the Melting Pot for a yummy and quiet dinner. But we didn't get dessert because we came home to have cake and ice cream with my babies, and I gotta tell ya, there are few things in life that make you feel more special than having your babies sing happy birthday to you!!!

What do you think of my new brownish hair?

This is my new entertainment center. I'll have more pictures after I fill in the space a little. But have no fear, there is a new 52" TV, Blue Ray player and general home entertainment system there. I guess I'm not the only one that got spoiled for my birthday!!!

In honor of me!!!

Since today is my birthday, and because I am a narcissist, I thought I would share the results of my Edwards Personal Preference Schedule (a.k.a personality profile). I took this for one of my classes and found it to be quite accurate. There are 15 categories and any time you score above 80% or below 20% in one of the categories it is considered a dominate personality trait. Those are what I'll be with you today.

Here's what I am (where I scored over 80%):
Achievement 98%: To do ones best to be successful, to be a recognized authority, to accomplish something of great significance, to be able to do things better than others.

Autonomy 96%: To come and go as desired, to say what one thinks about things, to feel free to do what one wants, to avoid situations where one is expected to conform, to do things that are unconventional.

Intraceptions 80%: To analyze ones motives and feelings, to observe others, to analyze the behavior and motives of others, to put one's self in another's place, to judge people by why they do things rather than by what they do.

Sexuality 81%: To be in love, to be regarded as physically attractive, to go out with members of the opposite sex. (basically it's how motivated I am by sex)

Aggression 92%: To attack contrary points of view, to tell others what one thinks about them, to criticize others publicly, to make fun of others, to tell others off when disagreeing with them, to get revenge for insults.

Here is what I am not (scoring under 20%):
Deference 6%: I do not, get suggestions from others, find out what others think, follow instructions and do what is expected, praise others, accept leadership of others.

Affiliation 17%: I do not participate in friendly groups, do things for friends, form new friendships, make as many friends as possible, share things with friends, form strong attachments, prefer to do things with friends rather than alone. (I kind of disagree with this one)

Nurturance 14%: I do not help friends when they are in trouble, assist others less fortunate, treat others with kindness and sympathy, forgive others, do small favors for others, show a great deal of affection toward others, have others confide in me about personal problems.

Change 4%: I do not travel, do new and different things, meet new people, experience novelty and change in daily routine.

Endurance 18%: I do not keep at a job until it is finished, complete any job undertaken, work at a single job before taking on others, stay up late in order to get a job done, stick with a problem even though it may seem as if no progress is being made.

Congratulations if you made it through that post, I would guess you would score high in the endurance category!!! Now, my one and only birthday request (from you anyways), is to tell me if you think it accurately describes me. (that means you have to leave a comment!!)

4 more days.....

until I turn 27. If I'm being completely honest (and I usually am, almost to a fault), this birthday is freaking me out a little. It's making me feel old. I'm no longer in my mid-twenties, I'm now in my late-twenties and I always thought I'd be more together by now. More mature, more respected, done some traveling, and I'm supposed to have a better wardrobe dang it!!
But don't feel bad for me for too long, after all, my husband is taking me on a shopping spree to Pottery Barn on my birthday, he just paid to have my house painted, and he bought me a gorgeous entertainment center (pics to come). Not to mention I have a beautiful family that thinks I'm perfect just the way I am.
Besides, you're only as old as you feel and I feel about 22. So for a 22 year old, my life is totally rockin!!!

Maybe it's a two year old you're looking for.....

Here's the conversation I had with my two year old while sharing my lunch with him...... (he'll be in green, I'll be in purple)

"you lost your pretty mommy."
"I'm not pretty anymore?"
"no, it's gone."
"Do I need to put make-up on?"
He then nodded his head and emphatically said "YES!!"

I guess it's karma though, I used to tell my mom she needed to put her make-up on too. Or maybe that means it's genetic...?

If you're in the market for a 5 year old

Isaac was put in time out today for punching his little brother in the face, here is the conversation that occurred shortly after....(isaac will be in green and I'll be in purple!)

"You just really annoyed me and made me mad so I want a new mommy!"

"That can be arranged."

"Well, just don't ever do it again and then I wont want a new mommy."

"I'll probably put you in time-out again so, should I find you a new mommy now, or do you want to wait until I do it again?"

"Okay, I was just teasing and I don't want a new mommy so just don't say that anymore."

He loves me!! He really loves me!!!

The Karate Kid

Isaac has been doing karate for a few months now and has made it up to a solid orange belt. These are the pictures from him testing from a low orange into a solid orange. He has to learn different forms and combination's for each belt level and then pass them off. He loves karate and has done really well with it.

This is his "ridge hand". it doesn't look very lethal but we're hoping one day it will save us from bad guys.

Here is instructor is awarding him with his solid orange belt. He was so proud, and so were we!!

And here is The Next Karate Kid.

He can't start until he is 4 and he can't wait!!!

Conversations with a 2 year old

me- "do you want string-cheese?"
mac- "no."
me-"what do you want?"

This conversation happens almost every night!!!......
me-"are you going to wear jamma's tonight?"
me-"okay, climb into bed"
mac-"I need jamma's!!"
me-"okay, lets put on jamma's"
mac- "no, I don't want jamma's"

This one happened in the middle of the night after he got out of bed and woke me up for no reason!!.....
me- "Go to bed"
mac- "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!" followed by throwing himself on the ground and flailing in all directions
me- "fine, you CAN'T go to bed!!"
mac- "NOOOOOOOOOO!! I want to go to bed!!!!!" followed by the flailing again.
me-"okay, go to bed."
mac-"okay." and then he climbed into his bed.
