My Old Man

Last week was my husband's 36th birthday. It is crazy to me how long I know him. I met him two months after his 20th birthday. 16 years have flown by! Christ where did it go? 1 house and 2 kids later, but it still seems like yesterday. I can remember our first meeting and everything after as if it just happened. He's a difficult man but a good man. A complicated dude but a fair man. Sensitivity isn't in his personality. He is a solid man. I never feel unsafe. I know that he will do what he has to do to take care of his family. He is not for the faint at heart. You need a backbone to be in his life and you can't take yourself too seriously he wouldn't dream of letting you. He is smart, calculated, hard to read, funny, likable, opinionated, chauvinistic and a smart ass but he's my smart ass and I love him.

This year is the first year that my kids are excited and understand what parties are so the days leading up to my husband's birthday on March 22nd were spent saying, "not today; Daddy's birthday is in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, day/days." I am not sure what they expected but after cake and presents they still were asking when the party was.

Written in the card from the kids I wrote:

Dear Daddy,

You are tons of fun whether in the sun or playing in the water.
So it’s on the deck what the heck it’s with your son and daughter.

We sit and wait, investigate the sounds outside the window, the van pulls up, Daddy’s home let’s play you’re tired but you do anyway.

Day is done, one goes to bed with a weary head while you play the other’s cradle.

The bed is packed, mom’s neck is whacked and that’s a fact but what can you do? We stick to you two like glue.

We love you Daddy, mom does too can we play more games with you?

Love, J&S

Webkinz Stole My Life

Where have I been? I was just thinking it has been forever since I blogged and I have so much to write about.

I got myself involved in Webkinz World.

If you don't know what it is..check it. You get a stuffed animal with a code that gets entered onto the website and low and behold your pet online. Cuuutee. Then you get it a house, furnish it, feed it, make sure it is happy and healthy, play games to make more kinzcash for more fun and exciting stuff for your pet. Come to think of it, if you are a parent this would probably be redundant.

Fun, safe, educational environment for your kiddies. My kids love it.

If you end up getting a cyber pet, let me know. Maybe our pets could chill at each others house one day, play a game, catch a snooze, or whatever.

Child Chatter

Idea stolen from the beautiful and talented Holli

Driving back from the supermarket on Sunday I caught my son's eyes in the rear view mirror.

Son - You smiling Mom?

Me - Yes, baby! I am smiling.

Son - We have fun times Mommy.

Me - (Heart swelling out of my chest) Yes, sweetie, we DO have fun times.

Changing my son's diaper this morning...

Son - Change my diaper?

Me - Ok, lie down

Son - I've got a big butt

Me - No honey, you have a little butt. Where do you get this stuff from?

Son - You've got a big butt mommy?

Me - (inside my head; "You've got that straight!") No honey. We don't go around telling people they have big butts.

Son - You have a small butt mommy?

Me - Yup, honey I do but we don't go around talking about people's butts. Ok?

Driving my son to school this morning, I listened to him talk with his sister. He says words and then she says the same word back.

Son - Lake

Baby girl - Wake

Son- Cat-eh-pill-ah

Baby girl - catefiler

Son - Sun

Baby girl - Sun

Son- Dog

Baby girl - Dog

Son - Cow

Baby girl - Cow, moo moo

Son - Very good, well done. Awesome job. You are a big boy

Me - Very nice. Thanks for being so encouraging but she is a girl
