Found this….

We were making a rare attempt at getting our kids on video tonight– the results will be posted on here very soon.  However, while Steven was editing it we came across this:

Notice Eli is still in diapers~ and if I remember correctly Monica was “calm” by the time we started recording.  Eli totally had her captivated!

Phone a Friend???

Phone-a-friend- that’s the bonus I took as a mom today….

It all started when I told one of my children it was nap time.  We got “Pony”, “Mr. Chubbs”, and blankie all snuggled up together with us.  I was going to lay down with them a moment when the demand came, “I want ‘Chicken’ and ‘Monkey'”. (Yes we do get very creative with our names around here!)  Well you must understand this child is not particular about “who” they sleep with. It changes daily.  Since “Chicken” and “Monkey” were not in sight I simply replied, “Not this time maybe tonight we’ll be able to find them.”

Well…… an escalating drama began!!! I did concede and give them “Chicken” and “Monkey” but then they didn’t want to lay down either….  a case of good old fashioned stubbornness was visiting!  During the 45 minute episode that ensued, I reached a point I had to call someone to help me hold on to the fight.  The conversation went something like this: Read the rest of this entry »

So What’s Your Thing?

I broke a life long tradition this past week and put up our Christmas decorations early.  I totally freaked my mom out because I used to be the Christmas decoration nazi– NO decorations until the day after Thanksgiving!!!  It was so funny to hear her remarks of how now she is ‘free’ to put up hers since I’ve deemed it okay…..  Sorry Mom for what I put you through =)!

Sooooooooooo I guess I’m just having a stupid streak this week–  I took Rosco to the Doctor twice yesterday!!  Yes twice.  Once to the Doctor’s office and once to the vets office right next door.  Yes that’s right I was talking on my cell phone when I pulled into the parking lot.  Both clinics have adjoining parking lots and are named after the street they are located on.  I got off the phone.  Unbuckled Monica, hooked Rosco to his leash, and we all three jumped out of the car– right on time I might add.

Monica’s stories are getting ready to come more frequently now that she’s talking.  Lil’ Miss Independent is starting to show her colors.  If you’ve been around us in a group setting you know that Monica prefers other mommy’s to her own.  Her philosophy from 20 months on has been, “I’ll see you when I get home mom.”  I’m okay with this right now because my little Miss loves to cuddle and dotes on me with kisses when we’re alone, but in public NO WAY!–  (Wasn’t that stage supposed to come later?!?!)

Anyway I thought I’d share a few things I’ve heard her say over the past week. Her independence continues with her speech. Read the rest of this entry »
