Too Cute Tuesday

The boys had their first big kid play date at the mall today. they had a ball. as you can see. they fought over the girl :O)

Friday, February 19, 2010

My boys Turned two, never have i ever been prouder, they can talk so much more , climb higher, yell louder, compete against other for attention, feed themselves, dress(sort of) themselves, watch a tv show for a solid half hour. and give real hugs and kisses.

oh i made quite the pair, and oh, i never knew i could love anything so much, until i loved them even more

Double the pleasure
Double the fun
Double the chaos
with 2, not just 1.

Double the groceries
Double the food
Double the clothes
They both outgrew.

Double the treasure
It's only just begun
The joy they bring together
will never be outdone.

Happy 2nd Birthday boys Mommy and Daddy Love you Very Very much

rain, or... mommy bRAIN

Rain by Shel Silverstein
I opened my eyes
And looked up at the rain,
And it dripped in my head
And flowed into my brain,
And all that I hear as I lie in my bed
Is the slishity-slosh of the rain in my head.

I step very softly,
I walk very slow,
I can't do a handstand--
I might overflow,
So pardon the wild crazy thing I just said--
I'm just not the same since there's rain in my head.

this is how i feel today. like things are sloshing around

can ya blame me?

hey sandman, where ya at?

Today, i would really like the boys to simmer down and take a nap. I'm still getting better from whatever the heck i did to my tonsils by trying to get yucky stuff unstuck. yea. great idea. and i would kill for a minute to myself, well.. maybe not kill.. but risk my kids losing their voices just to get a minutes peace around here.

Anywho. they're both SCREECHING at the tippy top of their lungs at the unjustice i have caused them by placing them in their very nice very comfy cribs with their doggys and a fan going. HOW DARE I provide them with the nap they need to prevent a nuclear melt down around dinner time, cuz no mom in this house will dare give them a nap at five pm, only to have them raring to go at say... 11:30 pm. nope, not me.

So if any of you are good at astral projection, can you please mosey on into their rooms and tell them"hey, it's alright, everyone needs a nap, the world would be a much better place!" cuz if I go in there it's all over. We start from square one.

i'll let it go for 20 minutes to see if Cole takes a chill pill, or exhausts himself.

thought for the week

Keep what is worth keeping and with the BREATH OF KINDNESS blow the rest away.
well i missed a post yesterday

and dont have much to vent about today other than some people are so involved in themselves that they dont believe you when you say your sick. i didnt feel like being around a party full of people all evening, and i wasnt about to bring the kids to chase either. kiss my butt. im sick. it's nothing against you, unless of course you want my flu or whatever the crap this is.. cuz seriously... you can have it.

there. i feel better

the dreaded time out

today alex was in a mood, the kind of mood where ya looked at him and he came out swinging.
he swung in fact, and clocked his brother right in the dome. well.. i cant let this go on, so i place him in our time out chair. not only was he outraged at this, but his brother was sad that he was in trouble, so he sat at the foot of the chair, and they both cried... nevertheless, they both sat there until the time ran out.. alex got down, and his brother smacked him back. nothing like delayed gratifacation... and we repeat the process.. four times.. sigh...

a quote i came across in a blog today really struck a chord for me
"be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle"- Plato

i've been trying today to think about the positive things in my life, and how much tougher we could have it even when i want to cry and scream about the bills being a little late, or not spending money on those shoes i really just Have to have. every person on the street has something going on in their lives too. So come on everyone, let that person into the traffic line, pay for a coffee, say Thank you when someone holds a door, and hold a door for someone else. one small act of kindness could really change someones day, because they too, are fighting something, no matter how small

songs to suit the mood

Fought away the sleepless hours Unsettled dreams will make you keep You can paint them all your brilliant colors Just don't fall off into the deep Happiness is not a burden Oh, how the pendulum will swing I have felt the ground, I've seen the seeds Out of which grew golden wings

you ever have one of those days where you can quite figure out the mood your in? it goes from overwhelming exhaustion, to sweet, to bittersweet, to melancholic , to content but with tears in your eyes?

for some reason this song covers that, not so much just in the words, but the melody, its called everblue by mandy moore.
its pretty fantastic. now hold on just a minute, im not going soft on ya, i just love love love this song. and to be honest with you. mike likes it too. so there. besides, shes my girl crush. for real. and i'll leave you with a pretty picture. because, you might have a crush on her too.. its just waiting to happen. come on jump on the band wagon
who's Your girl crush?

28 posts in 28 days

hey all! its been a lil while since i last posted anything real

today we're going to talk about the crazy people at the gym
you know the ones, who after45 min of insanly fast paced jogging on the eliptical, have yet to break a sweat, while me personally am struggling to remember to breathe, and trying to remember my name.

those people who have been up and at it for a while before you even walked thru the doors, and are still going far after your legs are rubber and your arms are jelly

i mean good for you , but come on... stop making us look bad. ;)

then again if you look at it from a mom's perspective and break it down

folding laundry 40 calories,
chasing kids after they get into the catfood, 50 calories,
picking up an indecicive toddler umpteen times ,123 calories
running from the back of the house to the front a gazillion times looking for said toddlers, juice cups, missing cellphone, remote, carkeys, cookie... you get the point... 87 calories on a low day.
dancing with two 30 lb toddlers on either hip. i dont even wanna know how many for that.. tho i do know i get a hefty work out cuz i can't walk for hours after without a wince.

okay so.. maybe i am that crazy person.. just at my home gym instead.
