In 8th grade........

Do you ever hear a song that just takes you back? Today I heard Seals Kiss From a Rose and it took be back to eighth grade. I was in love with a boy named Davin (I don't remember his last name). Looking back I'm not sure why I had feelings for him because he was kind of a loser, but I did, and I constantly day-dreamed of him professing his love to me through this song. Unfortunately he did not share my feelings, instead he was in love with my best friend. They made-out on my couch during my 14th birthday party, which was also the same day I got my braces on. It was the last time I had a birthday party.

The rowdiness that occurred after receiving his diploma.

"hey mom, ya wanna know how to do the hokey pokey?"

"First you put your right hand in, then you put your right hand out. Then you put your right hand in and you shake it all about. You do the hokey pokey and then you turn yourself around. And THAT is TRULY, TRULY how you do the hokey pokey."

-that quote is courtesy of my oldest.

Their Personalities Personified

We were at Chick-Fil-A and the boys were playing in the jungle gym area when a little girl instructed her little boy friend to beat my oldest up. My oldest being the lover that he is informed the little girl that it wasn't nice to beat someone up and that they should all be friends. This did not impress the girl or the boy and they pushed him. My youngest unable to pass up a fight comes flying across the playroom to tackle the little boy and pummel him. He then stands over his victim flexing his muscles saying "I'm the toughest, rrrrrrr".

And just to give you an idea of how ridiculous the whole scenario was, my oldest was twice the size of this little boy who was twice the size of my youngest.

I wouldn't trade them for the world.

She'll find you and kill you!!!

My big sister loves me lots. I know this because she has threatened a few peoples lives who have dared to mess with me. The first time happened at Classic Water-slides when I was 3 or 4 (so she would have been 9 or 10). I had my floaties on and was pulling myself along the wall of the pool when a big-huge girl jumped right on top of me pushing me under the water. To make it worse the girl stayed there, not letting me up!!!!! My sister of course saved me and then yelled at the girl every time she saw her the rest of the day. I think she kept telling her she was stupid and ugly. It was awesome!!!

One of the other times was when I was in jr. high and I was being seriously picked on by the cool girls at school. My sister and her friends went and tracked all the girls down and told them "If you ever mess with her again, we will find you and KILL YOU!!!!"

I love my big sister, she's the best!!!

Should I tell him?

I asked my oldest to marry me ('cause I'm just so in love with him), but he told me no because I was already married. Then he went on......

"Someday, I'm going to meet a beautiful girl, and I'm going to like her so much that we're going to get married. Then we're going to have babies, but it's the weirdest thing mom, I have NO IDEA where babies come from. They're just there all of a sudden."

Since he didn't ask a direct question I'm just going let him continue thinking they just appear out of nowhere.

A mild case of psychosis

I think I might be going crazy, and since I passed all my psychology classes with A's this semester I'm pretty sure I'm completely qualified to make that diagnosis. Let me share some of my stories with you and you can decide for yourself...

Yesterday as I was putting my oldest sons new Batman underwear away, I found myself sincerely wishing that they made superhero underwear in my size.

I was actually upset at the officials of the Monster Jam World Finals for making the obstacle course too difficult causing all the monster trucks to crash easily, and early in their freestyle runs.

I've been telling everyone I meet all about my youngest son pooping in the big boy toilet (and yes, I use the term "big boy toilet").

While most parents push their kids to perfection when they try to live vicariously through them, I have taken a slightly different approach and have been buying them loads of candy and junk food because I can't have any and I want to watch them eat it while I imagine what it tastes like.

Bullets again!!!!!!

  • I'm basically done with school this semester!!! I have one final left!!!!!
  • We are potty training my youngest!!!! He goes potty in the toilet but refuses to poop in it. Any suggestions? He's apparently terrified of the pooping part and I don't know how to make him not be afraid of it.
  • I'm getting a new camera for mothers day and need suggestions of which ones are good and which ones are bad.
  • I got invited to someones 18th b-day party. It was really nice of them to think of me but seriously, I'm like 10 years older than them!!!! It did not sound like my idea of a good time.
  • I'm dieting. I've completely cut carbs out of my life, and I've gained a pound.... that's right I said gained. And for those of you who knew me in MD, I've gained 10 pounds since the last time you saw me 15 pounds since some of you saw me if you left before I had my youngest....And for those of you who know me now, I used to be 15 pounds lighter and I want to be again!!!
  • I'm cranky....I think it has to do with the end of the semester stress and no carbs. So, if I bite your head off just know it's not you, it's me.....

He's growing up so fast......

He lost his first tooth!!!! "it just fell out!!!" Friday afternoon.

He squealed like a girl when he found the dollar under his pillow. He has big plans for that money!!!

But it's not as much as he was expecting.....He was under the impression the tooth fairy was going to leave $1000!!!!

I can't believe my baby lost his first tooth!!! and the second one isn't far behind........sigh.......they grow up too fast.
