lets see how this goes

so well we were out shopping for a new cabinet Owen discovered some bunk beds. Then we made the misfortune of telling him that his bed was kinda like a bunk bed if it was flipped over.

The kids has a mind like a steel trap - today he starts asking me to flip his bed over. I am a push over so of course i did in all my infinite wisdom, thinking tha this tent will fit under it and there will be more room etc. What i didn't take into account was the 1 yr old trying to climb up on it. It is a ladder - how can my 1 yr old climb a ladder. I was surprised Owen could climb the ladder

ack my summer is going to be long and stressful if this 1yr doesn't stop getting into EVERYTHING


10 schools day left - who is counting with me

off to find a new china cabinet

I can home the other day to find most of the contents of the china cabinet being safely moved to the middle of the dining room table with the play yard around it. We have been using our old entertainment center to hold china - not that greatest solution but it worked for a little bit - that was until the terrorist starting pulling things off the shelves. we really need a buffet were the drawers and door are closed.

I did very little child proofing with Owen and am learning my lesson with Logan - They are giving me a run for my money

queasy mommy tummy tea

Okay so I just gave my hubby the queasy mommy tummy tea. He has inherited the flu from Owen and I. He wanted the ginger tea but we are all out - I haven't bought any real tea since getting my awesome Keurig machine but i do have a stock pile left of what we haven't used up. So obviously I have the mommy tummy tea left since I am no longer pregnant nor plan to be any time in the near future.

I figured it is close enough to what he is looking for - something to settle his stomach before he starts heaving again. Hope he doesn't grow boobs - hehehe

sick sick sick

I got the lovely flu last night
Owen got it in the middle of the night
10 loads of laundry later i think we have turned the corner

Logan already had it so that just leaves my husband who took care of us all day

my head still hurts but at least i have been able to keep some food down. Owen is currently playing with Thomas so I think he is feeling better.

Luckily our nanny came and "rescued" Logan from the sick house and took him back to her house for almost the entire day. He obviously had way more fun than we did played outside most of the day and came home after a long nap.

How am I going to keep up with the awesome things our nanny does with our kids when I am home with them all summer. I am a little paranoid that they wont have as much fun with mommy as they do with her
irrational?? maybe

What do you do....?

So i ended up taking a road tripto my parents alone with two kids in tow. I got halfway there and realized I realy realy had to pee. hmmm - little terrorist was sleeping and the big boy was happily siging in his carseat. great... if i didn't hav eto pee i could make it to my parents with two happy little boys.

So McD's here I come instead. I wake little terror up, get them both out of seats, - of course as I am trying to get them out I get the evil look from some lady trying to pull into the parking spot next to me. There are at least 15 open spaces but fine take the one where my car door is open it's fine, i will hurry a little faster. We rush into the mcd's and get into the restroom - handicap stall is already in use. All that is left is the little tiny, knees almost touching the door stall. So Owen, logan, and I squeeze into the stall so I can pee. Owen of course doesn't need to go -- that is of course until we sit down with all our food to eat. Now what? I can very well leave Logan in the dinig room and take Owen. So i ask him to wait hoping that it isn't the cause for new underwear. After we clean up and are ready to head to the bathroom he decides that he really doesn't have to go anyway. joy!

We made it to the party and only had a few small incidents there - like Logan (aka little terror) playing in the toliet.

i survuved but next time i may need a few extra glasses of wine

May I have a treat?

The question of the day - May I have a treat after dinner?

Yesterday Owen threw a fit when we were leaving the chiropractor last night. He threw a fight when leaving preschool. He was having a rough day and told me so himself. So we told him no treats that night since he was not using his good listening ears.

So today he has been asking all day if he gets a treat tonight - At least I think he understands why he couldn't have one yesterday.

So hopefully there is a treat in the horizon tonight because otherwise i might need a stiff drink. to take a time out of my own.

We found a solution for the ever climbing 1 yr old. Our nanny ingeniously put the play yard around the dining room table. No more baby on top of the table! Why didn't i think of that??

the joys of a 3yr old

so we never had the terrible 2's really but today now that he is three was terrible.

When i picked him up from preschool he screamed and kicked and threw a fit when it was time to leave. He hit me and kicked me as I lovingly held him tightly to my body and carries him to the car while he screamed goo goo ga ga at the top of his lungs. I reminded him to use his words and finally as I got him into the car seat he screamed I want DADDDY!

okay little man I know how this goes - you are mad at me for making you leave so you want daddy, that is how the story goes when you don't get your way.

we get home and he wants the nanny, she wishes me luck and runs away. Not that i can blame her i want to run away too. Luckily Logan has just gone down for a nap and I try to convince Owen he needs a rest. I ask if he needs to use the potty - of course not because he just wants to go back to preschool. I put him in his room and he promptly pees all over. So we take a bath and clean up - he is currently snuggling in the recliner with his blankets and stuffed Thomas.

it is going to be a long night unless he falls asleep - wish me luck

acch finally

i am really bad at this blogging thing
I promise to get better

the little terrorist - other wise known as Logan is a CLIMBER - how do i keep him off my kitchen table and chairs? HELP

Owen was not a climber and i have no idea how to stop this behavior.

Owen is three and he is super excited about all his new toys - I am thinking about all his old toys and how a garage sale sounds great

Softball season has started so of course my loving husband has already injured himself. This year it is his hip - he thinks he is old or something. He needs to stay in somewhat of playable shape because we no longer has a back up first baseman.

other than that life is good

school countdown has started and i hope to write more this summer
