First one gone

Jereme lost his first tooth a couple months ago. It was hanging on by a thread. The only reason it came out was because he was jumping on the moon bounce and got knocked against the wall and it fell out. Since then he has lost one more. That one managed to stay in there until the new tooth was grown in completely and it fell out on its own. He is so funny. I was seriously about to take him to the dentist and let them pull it out. No harm done, and he is now two gold dollars richer.

Dress Up

The girls and I decided to play dress up a while ago. I had forgotten how much fun being a little girl can be! I love my girls!

Going for a Ride

A few weeks ago I noticed it was really quiet in the house. Natalie was asleep but Jordon and Brianna were awake and too quiet. I listened closely and heard voices coming from the garage. When I went out there the two of them were playing in Joels dead subaru. Not only were they pretending that they were mommy and daddy but they had their "kids" in the car ready to drop off at school. It was so cute... and kept them entertained for a long time. I think every house should have a broken car in the garage.

For the past week Jordon has been crying really hard when I drop him off for school. He was doing so well, occassionally he would say I want you to stay, or give an extra long goodbye, but for the most part stayed willingly. I feel so bad, he just says over and over again
"I want you to be my teacher"
"I will miss you"
"Stay with me"
I hope he grows out of this quickly because it is breaking my heart!

Free Dog

Today I don't want my dog. Normally she is kenneled when we leave the house. A few days ago I accidently forgot to kennel her when we left and she was perfect when we got home. So slowly I have been letting her out a little more when we leave. I still keep her gated in the living room just not in her kennel. Two days ago Joel let her out in the morning and forgot to lock her up before we took him to work... this is a must in the morning because I know she has not had time to empty her bowels. We came home from dropping Joel off and found SEVERAL piles of watered down doo doo (to put it nicely) in the girls room. I was mad, but didn't necessarily blame Lexi because Joel forgot to lock her up. I spent that day shampooing the carpet and cleaning the girls room. Today we took Joel to work and then came home. I made the kids waffels and took the boys to school. I briefly came home afterward to grab my phone which I forgot and thought " I should let Lexi out. She has been good. " So I let her out of her kennel.. gated the living room and went to Walmart. I was gone maybe and hour an came home to... Lexi at the door. How did she get out? What did this mean? Why does the house smell like poop? Where are all the left over Waffles? Why is there a glass on the floor? Why is the frying pan licked clean? How can it be that the gate is still shut and Lexi is in the Kitchen? The answer can only be she has learned to jump over the gate. So, naturally Lexi will be kenneled until further notice or someone comes and takes her. Oh, did I mention that she decided that it would be nice to poop on the middle of the girls floor again!



Brianna and I were eating lunch together. We had fish sticks, fruit and rice. Followed by Soy Milk. Naturally, after drinking, I let out a burp. Brianna starts laughing and says
"Eww! Gross!"
"What?" I asked
"You just tooted in your mouth!" she replied
While laughing I explain "..no I burped"
"... yeah.. in your mouth!"

Some days kids perception of things is so funny.
