It is time. . .

to hide a key outside! Over the past two days Mason has been locking the doors. Only once was I outside the house when it happened and Mike happened to be home inside. But now I am freaked, what if I run out to get the mail or take out the trash and the boy gets locked inside?!! I would have a heart attack and probably do something totally irrational. . .like break a window or run around the neighborhood screaming and making a huge fool of myself. So we will be debating over the next few days over where to hide the EMERGENCY key.

It's Our Anniversary. . .

Sometimes I catch myself saying it's my anniversary. Seriously, how snotty is that! And my loving husband still got me 2 dozen roses.
We had a quiet night at home. We made steak and huge shrimp, sauteed green beans and spaghetti squash. It was awesome! The boy ate so much, it may rank in the top 5 times he ate most. We couldn't believe it, but what can I say, the boy has good taste! If you haven't even tried spaghetti squash, you should! It is so fun to eat! It is this big yellowish squash that you prepare the same way you'd eat pasta. We had it with pesto, so delish, guilt free too! Give it a shot, I bet you'll like it!
I am off to spend some quality time with the man of my dreams. . .I can be nice too.

New Camera WOO HOO!

Have I mentioned that my (ahhhemmm) very responsible husband "misplaced" our digital camera a month ago!! uggghhh I was devistated! Not only was it the camera, but the memory card. On a lighter note, we got a new camera this past weekend and I am going to learn how to use flickr, SERIOUSLY! Stay tuned, I am going to work on it tonight after the boy goes to bed, A whole other story lately. . .

We are family. . .

This is my second post today! Can you handle it? I have had an annoying day that is replaying like a record in my brain, so why not blog about it. . .

So everyone knows someone without a verbal filter. And everyone knows someone who likes to speak about themselves a lot. But when you put them together, it makes for a whole lotta drama! Unfortuantely in my situation this person is a relative, a very close relative, OK it is someone in my immediate family!

This morning my phone rings, it is her. She begins by asking me how my sick family is doing, but I get the feeling when I answer, she doesn't really want to know the answer. Ummm was that a rhetorical question or . . . Then it begins, all the drama, all the time! On and on she goes, but then a break and I think I may be able to get a word in and I start to say something and. . ."My stomach is getting out of control, and because it is the tannest part of my body, I feel like it is really noticable."
Are you kidding me? Was she looking for a bone, cause I am not throwing one. I am sorry, but I'd like to think my life has a little more meaning than that. Moving on. . .

Next we decided that we were going to spend the afternoon at the pool. How did I not see more drama coming? So again we talk about her and her new boyfriend and his body that apparently is a little soft. WHO CARES! But she backs it up with "but that is OK because then I don't feel the pressure to look perfect." Barf bags anyone. . . anyone? Oh but it gets better.
"Don't you feel like that? I mean, Mike has a perfect body, don't you feel like that ever?"
I smiled and shook my head no and I bit my tongue, HARD. at this point I wish I could projectile vomit and hit a target!

The joys of family and you can never get away from it. Maybe this will be out of my thoughts now since I wrote about it. . .until something new happens tomorrow.

Reality Bites!

Today my perfect little boy is 20 months. I would normally say,"God , how the time flies by!"
But over the past couple of weeks it has become very apparent that in fact he is getting very close to the infamous 2's!! The vast majority of this morning was spent listening to the little angel whine and scream uncontrollably.
One may ask,Was he tired? Nope! He spent around 11 and 1/2 hours last night and napped for 4 yesterday!
Another may ask, Was he hungry? Probably, He doesn't eat! This morning he was offered( and refused) : Oatmeal, Rice Chex, Cheerios, raisens, cheese, PB& J. Oh and the best part. . . Last night I decided to bake Chocolate Zucchini Bread. It made a huge batch so I decided to make a special treat for my son to have in the morning. I put some of the batter into a mini muffin pan. I was even excited to give him this special treat.
One would assume, He loved it right? He took a tiny bite and threw it on the floor. FABULOUS!
Not knowing what else to try, he went down for a nap. It is 11:30, and my whiny, probably starving toddler is fast asleep in his room. Ahhh, the life of an almost 2 year old!

10 Reasons For Not Blogging Last Week

10. Entire family contributing to the Puffs Plus corporation with the amount of them used by 3 runny noses.

9. Being sick myself and still having to be the caretaker for my two BOYS is exausting!

8. Baby naptime is Mommy naptime when night sleep is non-existant.

7. Meal preparation for each meal= 2 hours. Trying to find something a sick child will eat is near impossible.

6. Fingers too slippery to type from taking rectal temps of 103 with Vasoline.

5. Lack of sleep for brain to function.

4. Being more awake during the pm, worrying I overdosed my sick and very hot baby by accidentally doubling the drug dosage.

3. Did I mention I was also sick? But I was too busy taking care of everyone else to be sick.

2. Nursing constantly for a toddler's only food source = pure exaustion and soreness.

1. I was changing diarrhea diapers, give me a break!

Trailer Trash, Boobies and The Dukes of Hazard!

The week has flown by! My Mom and I have been having a Rummage Sale for the past 2 days. "Attention all trash collectors, party at my house!" God where do some of these people come from. $20 red leather cowhide belt for $1.00, "Will you take fifty cents on the red belt, I'll have to get is made smaller and have a new hole added."
1. Take your skinny ass somewhere else.
2. Don't buy it.
3. I don't care what you will have to do to make it fit.
4. I have twine you can use for a belt, FREE!!

I loved that belt, it just will never fit again-post baby. Could I be bitter?
So tomorrow Pedro and I are headed to lunch and a matinee. I think we are going to see Dukes of Hazard. I'm pretty excited, it'll be our first movie since tho boy was born 20 months ago. Yes it is time! My parents will be watching the boy while we are gone. I'll have to fill him up with boobie before we leave and he should be fine. Right?? Anyone? Reasurance needed here!
I know he'll be fine. I'll give my movie report tomorrow, stay tuned!
