Day to day

So much has happened since my last post I don't even know where to begin. My little boy has started 1st grade! My girl is as crazy as can be and her new favorite word is nasty. Everything is nasty to her. :) We recently bought one of those gyro bowls because she is constantly spilling stuff on the carpet and well the gyro bowl just made it a challenge for her to dump stuff on the floor. Yeah so that's fun and all. So I think I'm going to start digitally scrap booking because I can't find the time to do it the regular way anymore and I don't have a craft room here. I guess I will post my first page when I get it done. We are also now in the process of decorating our home so more of that to come too! :)

Baby bottle blues and other-ness

So the whole time I was pregnant I was told so many times how wonderful Dr. Brown's bottles are - but they aren't. What a pain in the butt to clean those things, and I've had to buy special brushes and all the stupid little parts to clean. What mother has time for all that? Sometimes I wonder if the people who invent baby products actually have children.

My daughter is now nine months and just started walking!!

Its so cool and scary how fast she has grown! And Im in no hurry for her to start running around! My other little one is doing good in kindergarten and has too busy playing with his friends for me to even spend any time with him.

Im also on a new no-fat diet due to my gallstones and it has been so hard trying to cook meals for the whole family that I can actually eat - we have been eating a lot of low-fat options and stir fry. I am also babysitting a little girl for a couple of weeks and the neat thing about watching other people's children it makes you appreciate your own much much more.

Stay at home is making me crazy :)

So the baby is now 2 months old and my little monkey is going to start school when summer is over. My darling baby daddy is now working the graveyard shift and so I am a stay at home mom. At first I loved it - spend all day with the kids, don't have to have any of the stress of working. However after a couple of weeks of this stuff there are a few things that I have noticed:

1. With all of us home all the time the house never stays clean for even a day.
2. We live in the south so the average summer temp is about 100 - too hot to take the kids to the park (esp. the 2 month old) so our activities are limited

The walls seem to be slowing closing in on me and Im starting to run out of ideas to keep a 5 yo entertained for a majority of the day - I even googled stay at home mom. How do you keep from going crazy and what is it I do all day.

Baby is almost here!

So I have 28 days left to meet my baby girl! Its seems like so long ago I found out we were expecting a baby. We have everything set up and ready its just we are having a slight problem keeping the cats out of the crib. Any suggestions?

So I'm nervous and excited. I guess the normal feelings of a pregnant lady. The little monkey has been so awesome - I think he is just as excited to have a sister! He gives my belly kisses and says Hi sister. He tells me he is going to teach her how to play baseball. Speaking of baseball he starts t-ball in a couple of weeks so needless to say Im going to be busy as hell the next couple of weeks!

Wish me luck! :)

Ok I've been slacking on my blog posts lately - It may or may not be because I am addicted to a game on facebook called farkle. Also I've been working and taking care of the little one and cooking and all that good stuff.

Tonight I had the little guy's girlfriend over - they are so cute together - they argue all the time and tell each other they stink. So we put together a puzzle and ate string cheese and then we all made mini-pizza's which are so easy and they are pretty yummy - and the kiddo's can help.

Mini Pizza's
English Muffins
Pizza Sauce

put it all together and put it in the oven until the cheese melts.

Yeah I'm a regular Betty Crocker! I did try to make a cake with fondant - it turned out so aweful and it didn't taste that great either - next time Im just buying one.

What a day

So yesterday was awful! I got to work of course running late like usual and my boss is there he says to me that the doors were left unlocked (which I know is bull honkey because I was the last one there and I double checked to make sure the doors were locked. He leaves and then later I go to write a check and the checkbook and cash box were missing. I really think he is messing with me because he always tells me to lock my desk but I forget and really if someone were to break in they would have to unlock three doors, the lock on my desk really wont matter. Either way if someone did steal it - they got maybe $15 in cash and a checkbook with no money in the account - if my boss is really messing with me it might be time to put in my notice.

Anyway enough venting - The little guy was grumpy yesterday - after I got off work I go and pick him up from his grandfathers, about an hour after we were home it was time to make dinner - He didn't like what I was making so he started pitching a fit so I sent him to his room and turned the tv off. When the timer went off he came out of his room and looked at the tv and said "You ruined my day I wanted to watch tv" - It was so funny the way he said it that I just started laughing - which didn't help - but after a little consoling things were good again.

He said to me the other day while we were eating dinner, "you want to play poker" to which I responded "what?" he says "you know Texas Holdem - its a card game"
