This and that!

I LOVE my little boys with all my heart. I am learning what it means to "try" and raise well adjusted members of society. I could have done things a lot better, but there is still hope. I told myself that I would be a teacher and make that a priority........until we had 3 of them. I told myself that I would not let them watch television or play video games in excess.......until I realized I would never have any "me" time unless I allowed TV and video games into our house. I also never anticipated that I might not always know how to handle all that my 3 sons bring to the table.

What if your two year old says poop, butt and wiener every other word. What if he calls you poopy butt in the middle of a crowded area. What do I do when he looks at you with the most adorable smile and says with arms wide open "I love you this much" but turns around a minute later and says with arms wide open "I hate you this much". What if you try to ignore it to fix it and the problem still persists. What if you discipline for it and the problem continues. Maybe there is no easy solutions sometimes. Maybe, this is more common than I think. Do other moms go through these trials and just keep it to themselves because they are embarrassed to admit they don't have it under control all the time.

These are my questions, that go unanswered. I want great kids like everyone else. Maybe I should just laugh at these days because it's a phase and they will grow up to learn respect. Yep, that's what I'll do, laugh it off. He always does!

It's not easy being green.

Cooie had his 4 year old vaccinations today and he was not happy. He handled it very well.....I thought we were all in trouble. I was pleasantly surprised. The Dr. would ask him questions and Collin would answer for him. Cooie seemed ok with this because he was catatonic and very uncomfortable. It made me realize how close they are. Collin told him he was doing a good job while getting his exam. I also found out that Cooie has a common childhood heart murmur. Kinda scary, but I was assured that it was no big deal. He was rewarded for his bravery with a green Italian soda and a frog book from mommy on top of all the cool stickers and books from the Dr. He has had a perma-grin since.

I painted some old tires as props for my biz and for my own personal pics of course. The boys loved playing in the tires and it was a super easy way to keep them in one spot for a few minutes. The black jacket Cooie is wearing was a gift from his friend Caleb and he loves it. Thank you for Cammy's monkey outfit as well! You spoiled us this visit!
