Today I did not go to work because my husband is sick and I needed to stay and watch the kids (his mom is sick too). Why is it that when men are sick they swear they are dying? I was sick last week and still went to work and continued life as normal (I didn't have a choice). But NOOO when he is sick, he cant get out of bed for three days and whines like a big baby (but heaven forbid he does to the doctor). Vent over!
So after taking Jaden to school and running on the treadmill, Alec asked me to play catch with him. How could I say no to a kid who had a catchers mask on. hahaha

After we went to the jungle with some friends of ours. That place sure has a good name, because it is just that..........a jungle. Its a huge play structure and the kids climb all in it. Well my princess wanted to climb all the way to the top and then cry because she is scared. So guess who gets to climb all the way to the top to get her???????? Yup me. I snapped a few pictures

I came home and listed a few things on ebay (my new love). I recently sold some items I was going to donate for over $100. As I am sitting and listing my stuff, Alec comes to me to ask if I like his mustache...................................................Kids.

Tomorrow I will be back to work. Its nice to have a day off during the week with them but boy am I tired.

Our weekend

My brother came down this weekend with my niece and nephew, I always love spending time with them. I didn't snap any pictures of them playing this weekend (shocker). On Saturday my brother went to visit my grandparents and I let the kids dig in the dirt (another shocker)

My mom came over that night and we ate some yummy tacos and played games. My niece Mariah also turned 13 that day..............getting so old.

On Sunday Jaden lost his tooth (should have pulled it out a while ago because it was hanging). His new toothless smile

We also went to my youngest nephews (soon will change in May) baptism. He didn't like the water and was much happier sleeping.

The weekend ended with one sick princess (but not before she posed for me). Now she is miserable ...poor baby

Sweet and Sour

I swear my kids are like the sour patch commercials. They are bad and then they are sweet right after.
A few examples............

Sienna knocks down Alec's Lego masterpiece and makes him cry. He rebuilds it (when she is on time out) and she comes out and says "that's beautiful Alec, I love it"
UMMMMMMMMMMMM (change of heart huh)

Alec and Jaden were making Valentines last night. Of course they fight the entire time. I am getting really frustrated and then they both give me a Valentine, Alec's just had his name on it and Jaden's said "I love you more then anyone". hahahahaha

Back to Sienna...........I took her to get her pictures taken last week. She WOULD NOT take pictures. It was awful and I was in tears when I left. Today at Alec's school, one of the parents was taking pictures (like school pictures) and she sat and modeled for her. You would have thought she did it for a living. hahaha Of course today she looked tore up and last week she looked so cute.

A few weeks Jaden got in trouble at school (yeah that's rare since he is always a teacher's pet) and before I knew that he got in trouble, he came home and cleaned and folded laundry etc. hahahahahaha

I guess kida are like men!

Why am I so tired????

I have nooooooo energy today, could it be that:

  • I can't seem to get my workout routine back
  • I had school last night and my teacher is probably the worst teacher in the world and he drains my energy
  • Sienna stayed up until 11 and thought it was funny to jump on moms bed , just as I would fall asleep.
  • I woke up at 1, wondering where Brannon was, when I realized he was on the couch because I had two kids in my bed.
  • I woke up to a 3 year old boy saying "I want to take a bath" at 6 this morning

Time for a nap now

Peanut Butter

Last night Sienna asked for a Peanut Butter and Jellyfish sand which. I thought she was being funny and then she looked and me and said "why you laughing, I want peanut butter and jellyfish, please".

Life update

  • School started again for me (fun) and my teacher has to be the most boring person on the face of this earth (not nice). I really can't pay attention for more then 5 minutes. I start drawing on my paper like I am in Jr. high or something (making hearts and such). Thank god I am actually pretty good at math and can pick up on my homework and test.
  • My car is being fixed and they said it may take a month or so. Meanwhile I have a Jeep Commando. I feel like a military wife. hahaha
  • My grandpa Joe is in the hospital. He has Pneumonia and some other stuff going on. So if you pray, can you say a prayer for him. If you don't then just keep him in your thoughts. Thanks
  • Brannon is on a temporary lay off. It has been hard but we are surviving
  • We actually get a night out this weekend with no kiddos to celebrate one of my best friends birthdays (happy birthday Shannon)
  • Katie got a J.O.B. Yeah baby. I am excited for her. Its a temp position but it is still a job!
Kid update

  • Jaden-He is still sweet as always. His top tooth is loose but he will not pull it out. Most kids will play with it until it comes out....not Jaden. He will not eat anything that will make it come out. It is actually started to get annoying now because the thing is hanging. haha Would I be a mean mom if I pulled it out while he is asleep?? He is doing great in school and just passed a level 21 reading *yeah baby*. He has never enjoyed to read so this is huge for him. He is doing so well in school!
  • Alec-well what can I say.....he is still Alec. Cute as a button but stubborn as all heck. He picks and chooses when he wants to go to school still. UHHH He does like to learn and is so proud he can write his name. He is always saying "I want to do my homework" which means he wants to write his name 3000 times on paper.
  • Sienna-The Princess of the house has her dad wrapped around her finger and it can be annoying at times. She is talking so much and learning new things daily. She is still obsessed with dolls, dressing up in princess clothes, and boots with the furrrrrrrrr. Oh and her new thing is getting into my makeup and making herself pretty. Oh and we can't forget about her painting her nails when nobody is around (she actually does a good job. hahaha). But then she gets made because when she sucks her thumb it taste gross (yup she still sucks her thumb ....alot).

Ok thats it for now.
