A Funny Forward

Women's Ass Size Study
There is a new study out about women and how they feel about their asses! You may find the results pretty interesting:
A. 85% of women think their ass is too fat...
B. 10% of women think their ass is too skinny...
C. The other 5% say they don't care, they love him, he's a good man and they would have married him anyway.

My Little Army Crawler

I am way overdue posting this! (Sorry my sweet Leah!) November 22nd, exactly on the day she turned 8 months old, Leah began to crawl!!! Well...not really crawling I guess, but more like an army crawl, she uses her arms to pull herself across the floor. This week she also started to pull her legs up, but not quite to a normal crawl yet. Regardless, she is already thinking she can pull herself up onto whatever she wants to, but she just hangs there crying until Mommy rescues her! I don't like it that she is already almost a toddler! I want to keep my baby forever!♥♥♥

Disney on Ice

Today I took the kids to see Finding Nemo on ice. It was amazing! As soon as he heard the music, Beau's head turned and he was at attention the entire time. They used the movie voices, and some of the scenes on a big screen to mimic the dentist, and ocean, it was very well done! I was very impressed. Well worth the cost of tickets. We were only about 5 rows back at that! Great seats.

Coat War

The weather is getting much cooler around here, and I got both my girls nice, warm, pretty coats for the winter. Well, they call them 'fatty coats', and are quite stubborn about not wanting to wear them. "It's NOT cold Mom!" Um, YES IT IS! Sorry, but not letting my girls stand outside waiting for the bus in thier shirts, no coat, for 10-15 minutes, (since they fear NOT waiting that length of time OUTSIDE will ensure that they miss the bus).
Today, it came to a head. Drew was very angry with having to wear her coat, and she started balling her head off as soon as I put it on her. She carried on, and on, sat out on the porch crying, tears falling. I got the camcorder and started taping her fit, which made that much more angry. I came back inside, and just moments later she came in, and said to me, "Mommy, I'm just gonna stay home. I don't want to go to school." I looked at her..."What? No, you are going to school! Get back out there!" She started balling louder and louder, I pulled her back inside to make tell her to stop throwing her tantrum, meantime the bus arrives, I quick send her back outside, "NO NO NO NO, I CAN'T DO THIS...I CAN'T DO THIS...I'M NOT GONNA GO TO SCHOOL!" Balling, yelling, hysterical...and believe it or not, the girl stood there in the driveway refusing to move, refusing to get on the bus, and sure enough, missed the bus!!! I was furious! Needless to say, she took a nap today. What a stubborn child!

What does this mean?

I keep having this strange dream. It really freaks me out. I had it when Beau was a baby, and now I'm having it again. In my dream, there are some strange people standing outside his window every night, looking in at him sleeping, and somehow opening to window, making him very cold, so he wakes up, I go to check on him, and I see them in the window trying to get in to TAKE HIM AWAY FROM ME!!! I get very upset in my dream. I just don't understand it. Why would I dream something like this? Maybe because he is my only boy, and I am worried about something happening to him, which would then leave me without a son. FOREVER! In any case, I WANT IT TO STOP!

Walking Miss Evie

My life is ever so busy with babies, and ball games, and chores that I just do not have the time to spend training our Evie. Our home is just not big enough for her to be inside, and there are too many baby things around for her to chew up. Not to mention the terrible muddy puppy footprints that would be all over my house if she were let in all the time. So...we have made the decision to give her up to another family that has more time, and no babies! I know this is the best thing for her, but somehow I just feel so terrible about it. I have been the one that she has taken to most, and the one that has spent the most time training her, even though I haven't been able to spend enough time doing so. She has learned to heel so well that I can take the babies in the stroller and have her walking alongside without a single struggle, or tangle of dog leash in stroller wheels. I very much enjoy that. Walking her is somehow a vent, or relaxing time for me. The babies are at thier most calm, and it is so obvious that she enjoys being at my side. I will truly miss her!

Ebay anyone?

I recently started posting some of Beau's old clothes that I just could not stand to part with as he grew, on ebay to see if I would get any bids. Well...I am! Out of 16 posts, I have 7 bids! Woohoo! With 5 more days left, I hope the bid amounts increase, but if it turns out to be a flop, I'll just stop. It's kinda fun, and this way, I know the things I so treasured of his will go to yet another person that desires it almost as much as I did.

Bad Mom!

Today I took Leah in to the doctor to have a funny lump checked out on her belly. It's just below the right rib cage, and turns out to be a sebaceous gland that is expected to grow till it eventually is big enough to come out, (kinda like a zit!) which I believe will be by surgical removal. Strange, hopefully it doesn't get any bigger. Right now it is quite small, but able to be felt if she is undressed.
Anyway...while I was at the doctors office, turns out I missed making Leah's 6 month vaccination apptmt! What a horrible Mom I am! I felt so terrible, but they said it was fine, and gave them to her today. Then as I was packing up the babies, we got to talking "flu shot". So, the babies both ended up getting a flu shot as well. Beau was first, poor thing, he had no idea what was coming, but quickly recovered. Then as he watched Leah being put down on the examination table once again, and he realized that she was gonna be getting one too, he started yelling, "NO! NO!" What a protective big brother! Next time it's all the girls...that'll be a real whine festival!

Parts of my day...

Today we got a late start, I had to run some errands, so after Drew was home from school and Beau woke from his nap I rushed out the door since it was already 1pm. I promised them McDonalds since I had to get going in order to be home before the other girls got off the bus. We got to McD's, the kids hardly ate and ran off to play on the climbing structure. Beau found a little girl his size and just stood there giggling at her, and pointing at me saying, "Mama!", then giggling some more. He is so adorable! He was showing me off! What a wonderful boy!

We went to the shoe store to look around since Drew's feet are already growing! Once we walked in, Beau ran, ecstatic, pointing at every shoe he found, picking them up and bringing them to me to see. It was as if I had just taken him into a candy store, he was sooo excited! The minds of little ones...

Tonight, as we were making our dinner, the power shut off. It quickly came back on, but with Darrin gone to work, I am NOT about to end up in the pitch dark with 2 babies to care for, so we all raced around lighting candles, and no sooner did we get 4 or 5 of them lit did it shut off again! The kids let out a scream...Drew the loudest, ofcourse. So, I got out the big box of "just in case" candles, and we now have a candle in every room, and 3 in each big room. Now we're ready for it!


Clapping Hands
Last saturday was Drew's last fall soccer game. They one once again, and she scored 3 of the goals! My husband had to be the one to go this time, I had to remain home with babies due to severe downpours. Apparently as she was approaching the goal at one point, the other team put a girl in front of it, and Drew stopped short enough to kick that ball high up in the air over her shoulder and into the goal anyway!!! Absolutely amazing! I am one proud Momma! This girl is the one! The focused, coordinated, driven athlete I thought she would be. Can't wait to watch her this spring!

A Time to be Greatful

I just thank the good Lord ever so much for blessing my life with 4 healthy, beautiful children. There is not a day goes by that I do not realize how lucky I am.

Devil or Angel?...Devil, definitely!

Drew was most definitely the devil portion of her costume from last night, today! She was so nasty this morning asking for what she wanted, no, demanding what she wanted. "Mom, go make me breakfast!", "Mom, you have to get out my clothes!". And when she was just sitting there, I told her to go straighten up her bed, and brush her teeth, she fought me to the death! She sat there, refusing to get up. I said, "Well then, I guess you get to take a nap today after school!" To which she ofcourse responded, "NOOOOOOOOO!!!" Hee-hee! She kept on with her nasty self till it was time to exit the door and wait for the bus, so she earned herself nintendo, and playstation restriction. (this just devastated my little ritalin child!)
Once she got home from school, she greeted me ever so sweetly at the door. "Hi Mommy! I love you!" Yeah, butter me up so I won't make you nap...I reminded her she was to take a nap..."No-o-o-o-o! Please let me stay up, I'll be the angel!" This polite plea quickly turned to "NO! I'm not gonna! I'm just gonna go play on my bed!...I'm gonna make a mess if you make me take a nap!...Your a mean mommy!"
Finally, with the threat of Daddy's belt, she backed down, laid down, and passed out! She slept for what must have been atleast 3 hours. Too much fun the past few days, and TOO MUCH CANDY!
