A few little funnies...

Today at lunch Hann ah saw a young couple cuddling. He had his head on the girls chest, very near her breast. Hann ah yells, "Look mommy she is breastfeeding her little boy too".

After a 22 month 6 day break my least favorite aunt paid me a visit. I was prepared here for her, however since I had to be out and about today and I am not in the habit of packing tam pons I left without any today. So after I picked the kids up from Bible School we headed to the best pharmacy in the whole wide world (C V S) and purchased tam pons. Ga be asked me what I in the box and I informed him tam pons. He then asked me what they were for and I was unable to think fast enough on my feet. That question earned a text message to my resident expert mom on call and she aided my brain in answering he big question.

Then the poor kid is probably scarred for life. We were at Jo Ann Fabric and we were in the bathroom. So I attempted to very discreetly and quietly replace said previously purchased item and Ga be had to turn around in time to see red and he went hysterical. In tears crying that I was bleeding to death and that we needed to call Dad dy at work. I needed to go to the hospital. I say he was HYSTERICAL would be putting it mildly. Of course the bathroom had to be full of people and it took me 20 minutes to settle him down. Of course now everyone in Jo ann fabric KNOWS that AF is here. You have to cut me a little slack on this people. I have only had her visit 5 times since May 2001.

Cancelled

Well, I did it. After much thought Da rren and I decided to cancel Ga be's surgery until we get back from FL in October. The ENT said that there was really no rush and since after surgery he cannot swim we decided to just postpone it. It just is not fair to not let him swim when the other kids can. Nor is it fair for us not to let any of them swim. ESPECIALLY after I have dumped 100# of chlorine into that pool.

Also, thank you for the nice messages today. I was going to apologize for my entry, but I am not going to make excuses nor apologize for the way that I feel/felt. But thank you those of you who care :). I wuv you too!

Carie asked if that was Jess ica Sim pson, but no...It is Miss Angela their instructor. The Husband has decided that if she is their instructor in the fall HE wants to take them to class. I forgot to tell him that you cannot stay and observe. LOL

This Summer they will have Miss Amber for Ballet and Tap. I am not sure how the Fall schedule will work out.

Here are the Snow Prince and Snow Princess. My cousin Karley and my Great Aunt Jane came to do hair and face (aka make up). Boys do not wear make up, it is called face. :)

The Dynamic Duo

Last night was your first recital. And I think I am very safe in saying that it is the first of many. I was slightly concerned after dress rehearsal that recital would be a flop. To say that dress rehearsal was a train wreck was putting it lightly. Gabe at rehearsal you lead the girls out like you are suppose to. As soon as they turned on "the big lights" the girls froze and the smiles melted off their faces. You continued to smile. Lindsay, you looked straight at me and had a look of panic on your face. I know I gave you the, "Get your ass out there and dance" look, however you then did smile and started dancing. After you got off stage you told me that the lights hurt your eyes. I told you, Sweetheart there is an easy fix to that. DO NOT look at the lights.

Yesterday the 2 of you were so wound up. For my mental health and your safety ;) I had you lay down. When you woke up Great Aunt Jane and Cousin Karley were here to do your hair and make up. You both looked so amazing. We got to the hall to get ready and I got you dressed. You were both breathtaking. Amazing. Beautiful. And SMILING. Before you went on stage I got the 6 of you lined up in line and we went into the hallway to wait. Lind say and Ga be you were the only 2 smiling. When we got back stage and we waiting to get you on the stage you were amazing. Ga be you just smiled and smiled and smiled. LB you reminded me that I told you not to look at the lights. Even Mrs T told you not to look at the lights and you would be fine. LB, you had such an amazing smile on your face it was priceless. As Miss Angela lead you onto the stage Jen and I ran down the stairs to sit in the front seat to watch you perform.

Ga be you were holding Miss An gela's hand and as soon as everyone saw you bringing your girls out the entire crowd said "Awwww" and applauded. It was amazing and moving. You and Li li ndsay SMILED the ENTIRE TIME you were out there. G abe when you started to twirl the girls Audrey sort of froze and you have her the twirl signal with your finger. It was really too cute. When you got thru turning 1.2 of the girls the crowd started applauding again. You stopped and looked at them like they were nuts. The look on your face easily said, "But I am not done yet". You did not knock off 1 tiara. You were amazing.

Lind say, I know that it was very hard for you knowing that G abe was dancing with Audrey and posing with Audrey at the end of the number. I have to say you really stepped up to the plate and did not let that interfere with your dancing. You made me so proud. Not allows can you do what you want and you made me proud by going out there and smiling the entire time. You and Gabe LOOKED like you had fun.

You asked as soon as you got off stage if you could go and do it again. :) Yes honey in another year. Next year you get to do 2 numbers! 1 tap 1 ballet.

Last night I was so immensely proud of how brave you were to get on that stage. I love you both so very much! It is hard to believe that you were those itty bitty babies that I brought home from the hospital. You bring me so much happiness and joy.

I LOVE YOU,
Mommy

Family Bathrooms

In our local mall there is a child care area where there are separate rooms for moms who want to breastfeed in private and there is a very nice bathroom with 2 potties. "A mommy potty and a little kids potty". Sweet Hannah, my emotionally scarred 2 year old, much prefers the Little Kids Potty vs the regular potties in the mall. So I trek 3 kids and a baby thru the mall to get to her favorite potty and we get there and the bathroom is occupied. Now of course Hannah is refusing to walk across the food court to the ladies bathroom because that would be where she fell into the toilet and the automatic flush toilet nearly sucked her into the drain. Now we all know that her fanny was NOT going down that drain, but in that instance that caused us to have to carry a potty chair in our stroller at Disney. We wait and wait and wait some more and 20 minutes later a teenaged couple walked out of the bathroom holding hands and giving each other mouth to mouth recussitation. During this time, I have befriended a Daddy who was out with his twins (boy girl also) and they were picking out a birthday gift for their mommy.

Well, I could not let it go. Hannah nearly peed her pants waiting to use the Little kids potty, I said to the couple... "Excuse me". They both turned around and gave me the Are you talking to us look. You know the look where you completely realize that these urchins now look at you as a MOM. A vile and evil parent that are out to spoil their fun. I continued, "This is a family bathroom and since you are sucking on each other like you are, I am completely hoping that you are NOT family. However, since this IS a family bathroom in the future can you please go find a dressing room in which to use to have you fun. Innocent little children who have nearly been sucked down the toilet on a BIG potty would really appreciate it." The couple looked at me and the Daddy of the other twins and said, "You can't tell us that YOU have never gotten it on in a bathroom". The daddy laughed and said, "Actually we can, WE are not a couple, never have been, and probably never will be since we JUST met waiting for you to get done". The young couple just walked away and I cringed at the thought of having Hannah use the potty. The Daddy and I looked at our kids and said, "The potty is broken we will have to use the other potties." I was not about to take my kids in that bathroom after those kids were doing their thing in there. NASTY

I will never look at a public bathroom the same. I thought that they were dirty nasty before....Now YUCK! I might have to start carrying a potty chair for me to use while we are out.

...Gets TORTURED!!!!!

Let me just say, he may have gotten chiggers.....I got a SICK HUSBAND! Yes you read that right. The worst form of torture. A sick man in the house. That is by far worse that 4 vomiting and pooping kids by atleast 100 times.

It seems my husband's allergic r esponse to the chiggers of nausea, diarrhea and the occasional episode of vomiting rendered him bed ridden (or couch ridden). The debilitating nausea and the crippling diarrhea were just too much for the strong man to handle, it caused him to slip into a state of sleep. (Not that that is hard at all) However during his moaning, groaning and belly aching (excuse the pun) *I* deemed that he indeed got the last laugh. He had fun at Geekfest and he got to come home and torture his wife.

Today he was "recovered" and decided that he had best kiss some ass. So the non-handy one went to Lowes and bought the closet organizer for the girls room. He even assembled it with some help from me and the kids.

Now if I can just teach him to put his laundry in the correct hampers we wold be going good...
