Things to ponder

Last night our smoke alarm started going off. The first words out of my mouth- "Oh, dear." What the- ! Am I an 80 yr old woman? The alarm however did not wake up the kids.

When the smoke alarm goes off in the middle of the day and it is inappropriate to say anything except 'oh dear' (AKA the kids are within 2 feet of me) the first words out of my mouth are ' OH, S$@#'!!!!!!!!

just so you know

smiley fries + ketchup + a diet coke + 2 cupcakes + 9am + 6months preggo = HEARTBURN!!!!!!

The Morning from Hades

Pilot piled the kids on the bed this morning to wake me up.I am NOT a morning person. I don't know what he was thinking. LM poked her finger in my belly button and it still hurts. BAB smacked my face and took off with my phone. Not mention she was REALLY loud and annoying. Then Pilot made a snide comment to me. I was not a nice mommy this morning. I yelled. ALOT. Then I had smiley fries, ketchup, a diet coke, and 2 cupcakes.

Oh, did I also mention that I have been awake since 5:30 because the neighbor dog came over and riled Sheila up. I never was able to get back to sleep. Then he sat out there and barked. Which woke up the kids at 7am this morning. *sigh*

Things that I have said to my 2 yr old recently-

1. We don't have a barn. We are never going to have a barn. STOP ASKING!!!!!!!
2. Stop touching the dog. Stop touching LM. Don't touch anyone else or you are going to bed.
3. You want to pray for Aunt Bruce?

A slump

I'm in a slump. I am so tired and can't seem to catch up. I need a day of rest. This however, is net with much disapproval as possible from Pilot. I wish he could understand that I can't just take a nap when I want. If the kiddos schedule works out I may be able to. But they usually don't. Then I have to do this and that and clean and make food and blah, blah, blah. I just need to sleep. I can't even sleep at night because I am plagued with crazy pregnancy dreams and have insomnia now as well. When I wake up I'm up for at least 2 hours. I'm really not one to complain about my pregnancies. But I AM TIRED!

The day after

Well, I have a nice farmer's burn. I have subjected my one year old to skin cancer already. And my 2 yr old is very cranky because we are not going to the park the second she woke up. But LM and I were able to sleep in until 9am. BAB and pilot went to his grandma's for breakfast. A semi quiet house in the morning.

A little funny thing is going on with our kids. Of course if you have been following or already know us then you know that BAB is adopted and LM is our biological. BAB (almost 3 in a couple of months) wears 5t shirts and 2t pants. LM (16 months old) wears 18-24 months pants (not 18months, too short) and 2 t shirts. LM is actually about as tall as BAB. I think that she may even pass BAB in the pants area this fall. BAB is short and a little on the chubby side and LM is taller and lankier. I am taking bets on who will be taller this fall.

Beautiful day today

Went to 2 different parks, sister's house to play, picnic at one park, pizza at the other, Dairy Queen, baths for both girls, shower for me, and sunburn for everybody. Not to mention swollen ankles for me as well. But the girls were both pretty good today. LM had a few melt downs. BAB was good 99% of the day. All in all not a bad day. Lots of sunshine. Loved it. Hopefully tomorrow will be just as nice!

Easter 2009

Fun was had by all. We went to my mom and dad's house for Easter lunch. YUMMO! Then we had a Easter egg hunt for the little ones and the little one's at heart. Fun was had by all. At 6pm after consistently getting on BAB's case for one thing or another we packed up went home. I had enough. I got the kids in the house. (By myself of course because Pilot was flying) Pj's on and ready for bed. They were in their Easter coma as soon as their head shit the pillow. However I am paying for it today since after said Easter coma neither one has taken a nap. *sigh*

The Gate

I have started to put a gate up to keep BAB in her room at night. She has started coming out in the middle of the night and playing with her toys. Real sneaky of course. However her toys make noise. About time all those loud and annoying toys paid off! I am most worried that she will just let her self out. And yes I have tried locking the doors. She knows how to unlock them. She has decided to go outside on a handful of occasions. So we had to bring out the gate.

I have been so busy lately! Haven't had time for the blog. But the kids are sleeping and I have a few minutes. WOOT!

I have 4 more months until little baby girl is born. I am FREAKING OUT!!!!!! Ok, so no really that bad. It just kinda hit me the other day! Everything is basically ready. I only have to get the dresser and crib ready. I basically have everything else.

I am going to a couple of shopping centers next weekend! WOOT! I am going with a friend and we are going sans kids and husband. I am sooooooo excited. I can hardly wait. There is a cutsie little strip of stores and then a BIG christmas store. Then in the next city over there is a GINORMOUS outlet mall. EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A friend came over the other day and helped me make some letters to stick on the wall. They are
my kids' names. It's wood letters with scrapbook paper glued on top. Easy and fun. LOVE IT!!!! I need to go and buy some letters for the new baby. But I'll have to hide it in my super secret spot because it is a secret. I really don't know why..... That was Pilot's decision. I already told people anyways. Whatever.

I have tulips, daffs, and hydrangeas coming up!!!!! I need to buy some crocuses this fall and plant those so they can come up next spring. My cedum is starting to grow too. I think I have some irises that are coming out as well. I LOVE SPRING!!!!!!!

I have carpenter ants in my kitchen. They are driving me nuts. I went on a rampage yestreday and killed about 30 of the suckers. I think I made a dent. I need to buy something to get rid of them but I don't want toxic chemicals in the house because of the little ones. BAH!

Because Pilot is gone a lot I get stuck.....er.....I mean, am able to entertain his out of town family while he is gone. This is not fun for me. Some family is ok, but some are not. We will leave it at that.

BAB is driving me nuts. She 2 going on 13. I can hopefully get her into a program for preschool this fall. She is going to be turning 3 in the summer. Some programs have a 3 year old program. She really needs it. This putting her personality in the best possible way- She is a born leader that is going to be a good boss some day. That is what I tell people. You can read into that how ever you would like.
