A Friend

A friend is someone who thinks you're a good egg even though you're slightly cracked!

I just wanted you to know that I have entered the snapdragon part of my life.

Part of me has snapped, and the rest of me is draggin'!

What Did You Eat?

So tonight I was changing my son's dirty diaper. Talking out loud I said to him, "Whew, what did you eat?" From behind me I hear my daughter say, "Mommy, you know what he ate." I thought it was kind of a cute and funny moment worth writing about.

Into and Onto EVERYTHING

So I just realized that it has been nearly a week, yes I said a week, since I last posted a blog post for you all to read! Shame on me! Wasn't really sure what to write about tonight so I decided to write about my son. Aren't kids always doing SOMETHING that gives us parents something to talk about? Sometimes that something is cute and sometimes it is not.

Well, my little guy has been getting into EVERYTHING here lately. It seems more so than usual too! It's like he bounces from one thing he isn't suppose to have to another. Whether it be from playing with the tv, to getting into the cabinet with the movies, playing in my craft stuff, or his all time favorite- bothering the computers. He LOVES to play with the mouse at both my computer and my hubby's computer.

One of his other favorite things to do is get a hold of the phone whether it be the house phone or one of our cell phones. He tries to push buttons then hold it to his ear. At the young age of one and a half he apparently has already started to grasp the concept of a phone! Boy, they sure do start out young don't they?

When he isn't getting into anything, my son is climbing on everything from the couch, to the end tables, and even hubby's computer chair. We really have to keep a close eye on him. The little booger is quick too! Definitely keeps us on our toes! Sure do love the little guy though! Wouldn't trade him for anything!

More Interrupted Sleep

So yesterday I posted about how my son and I didn't get a whole lot of sleep on Monday night. Well, our Tuesday night was not much better! Here's how our night went:

10:15pm-Time I rocked him night night.

11:10pm-Time I went to bed. I heard him moving around and knew he'd be waking up.

11:20pm-Sure enough he woke up! He'd only been in bed about an hour.

1:40am-He woke up once again. Yes, it had only been a little over two hours since the last time!

4:10am-Why yes, how'd you know? He woke up AGAIN!

8:20am-My alarm went off and I had to get up to get my daughter ready for school.

8:45am-He woke up on his own but I seriously thought I was going to have to wake him up again like I had to yesterday morning. I was getting things to fix my daughter's hair and then I was planning to get him up. He woke up before I got her hair fixed so it worked out fine. I really didn't want to have to wake him. I don't like it when I have to wake him!

If you read my other blog post about not getting much sleep you would know that he basically held the same schedule two, yes TWO nights in a row! Thankfully he rocked right back to sleep each and every time he woke up Tuesday night though unlike Monday night when one of the times he kept me up for an hour and a half. That was NO fun!

Hopefully he'll start sleeping better at night REALLY soon! Not sure what is waking him up but hope whatever it is will not continue to do so!

Taste Better Elsewhere

I had my son sitting in his high chair this morning with some dry cereal. Apple Jacks to be specific. Well, when he was sitting in the high chair all he was doing was playing with the cereal. Trying to crush it on the tray and sticking a lot of it down in the seat. He wasn't really eating any of it.

As soon as I took him out of the high chair, apparently he got hungry. He started taking pieces of the cereal off the tray and ate it. Go figure! Guess it tasted better from outside of the high chair!

Up A Lot Last Night

Last night was not so good for sleep for my son and myself. Here's how our night went:

10:30pm-Time I rocked him night night.

11:30pm-He woke up and I rocked him back to sleep. Yes, he had only been in bed about an hour!

1am-He woke up again and I rocked him back to sleep. Yep, he'd only been in bed about an hour and a half this time!

4am-You guessed it! He woke up AGAIN! This time he didn't rock right back to sleep though like the other two times. I was up with him for nearly an hour and a half this time.

8:20am-The alarm went off and I had to get up to get my daughter ready for school. I did NOT want to get up!

8:45am-Woke him up. Yes, you read that right. I had to wake him up in order to take my daughter to school this morning. I REALLY did not want to have to do that either after him not sleeping well all night long but I had no choice. It was SO hard to go in there and wake him once I finally got him sleeping good!

Here's hoping tonight will be better! Only time will tell!

Late Night

This past weekend we had a friend come into town who hadn't been here in awhile. We'd seen him recently though as he lives where my hubby's parents live but he hadn't been to our house for quite some time.

Well, with him in town, we decided to plan a get together with some family and friends. Saturday evening I made crab alfredo and garlic toast. My hubby also grilled some salmon and sausages. We had some other sides as well like lettuce salad, macaroni salad, and cottage cheese. Overall, a nice little meal. I think everyone was full!

We were up until like 3am. It was a very late night but we all had a lot of fun. I'm way too old to be staying up THAT late very often. That is for sure!

Calmness In Our Lives

Got this in an e-mail today and thought I would share it with you!

I am passing this on to you because it definitely works and we could all use a little more calmness in our lives. By following simple advice heard on the Oprah show, you too can find inner peace.

Dr. Oz proclaimed, 'The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started and have never finished.'

So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Tequila, a package of Oreos, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos, and a box of chocolates.

You have no idea how freaking good I feel right now!

Pass this on if you know anyone you think might be in need of inner peace!

Thought For The Day

Have you ever wondered if the one dollar bills in your wallet were ever in a stripper's butt crack?

If not, you're wondering now!

So folks, always remember to wash your hands after handling money!

That's my public service announcement for the day. Thank you very much! Have a nice day!

Eating Spiders While Sleeping

So you have probably heard the line about how everyone will eat a certain number of spiders in their lifetime while they are sleeping right? Do you believe it?

According to this is not true. We do not eat spiders while sleeping! Thank goodness!

Laughing SO Hard Continued

So the other day I posted about something that made us all laugh SO hard I had tears in my eyes! It involved my one and a half year old little boy and grass. For some reason he did not, and I mean did NOT want to touch the grass the other day when we were outside.

If he was walking around and fell in the grass he absolutely refused to touch the ground to help him stand back up. He stayed on his knees and just tried to stand without any help. If he couldn't get back up on his own WITHOUT touching the grass he would cry for someone to help him.

The next day he was still not wanting to touch the grass. As you can see in the picture below when his hands got close to the grass he would make a fist so as not to have to touch it. Obviously this was probably WAY funnier if you were actually there to see it in person but I still thought you might enjoy reading about it! He eventually started touching the grass a little bit but still didn't seem too fond of it. I don't know what he'll do next time. We'll just have to wait and see.

T-shirt Saying

I'm always saying to my little boy, "You're lucky you're cute." Most of the time it is when he is doing something he isn't suppose to be doing but yet it is just a cute moment that you can't help but smile. Know what I mean?

Well, the other day we were talking about getting a shirt made with a saying like that on it for my son. My daughter decided to share her idea for a shirt as well. I think she said the shirt should say something like, "I love my big sister and I'm cute."

One of these days I'm going to have to get a shirt made for him!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone! Hope all of you had a wonderful Easter Day filled with family and friends! We went to my grandparent's house today for a big meal and an egg hunt for all the great grandchildren.

It was a really nice family gathering because for the first time in I don't know how long, the WHOLE family was there. This included my grandparents, their three daughters, all eight grandchildren, and all eight great grandchildren plus the spouses/other halves to the couples along with two whom were not family for a grand total of twenty-eight people! Yes, it was a FULL house! Luckily the weather was extremely beautiful so we could all be inside and outside making it a bit less crowded.

I can't remember how long it has been since EVERYONE came to a family get together like this so it made for an even more special day. Seems like there is usually SOMEONE not present for some reason or another. Hopefully we'll be able to have the ENTIRE family at our next get together as well! Only time will tell!

Laughing SO Hard

I have the best topic to post about but can't yet! Let's just say it involves my one and a half year old little boy and grass. We were laughing SO hard earlier that I nearly had tears in my eyes! I'm hoping to get pictures to post when I fill you in on the details. Guess you'll have to keep checking back to see what happened!

I know, I know! I gave you popcorn and now you want the butter for it right! How dare I post only tidbits and leave you hanging? Is that what you are thinking? I'm sorry! I wanted to post something today to give you SOMETHING to read! Now you can all use your imagination to try and think of what happened. Then when I do post the full story you can see if you were right!

Knock Knock

So you know how when you go to knock on someone's door you ball up your fingers into a fist? Well, picture an adorable one and a half year old doing his fingers like this and then "knocking" on your arm. Instead of just using one finger to tap/poke us, this is what my little guy does to get our attention. "Knocks" on us. He just started doing this the past few days and it is just way TOO cute!
