Funny Kids

M and L were talking about food they like. L said she doesn't like pickles so M says "If you don't like pickles, I can't marry you." and L says "we can't get married anyway, you are my brother." and M says "I wouldn't because you don't like pickles." so there :p

Little man is really into super heros right now and decided that he has super powers. "mom, don't call me little man, call me BIRD NECK! I have super powers." Ok, bird neck.

L saw a commercial for the Benchwarmers DVD. "Dad, can we rent the benchwarmers when it comes out?" Stu says "what is it about?" and L says "its about these guys that warm benches and play baseball." ha, warm benches.

Update on the food challenge.

Little Man has passed the food challenge!!!! I am so excited, I don't know what to do with myself, haha. I think I'll make homemade granola again, woot!

I am working this week, so I decided to hold off on the apricot challenge until next week when I can actually function.

Happy Dancin' at my house!!

Could it be?

After 4 years of being very vigilant about what goes in Little Mans mouth, could he really be outgrowing all his allergies?

We did an oat food trial this weekend, no signs at all of any reactions! I'm going to give it a few more days, but I'm very optimistic. His reactions to oats before hit within a couple of hours, so going days is fantastic!

I plan on trying apricots this weekend and then we'll probably take a break for a week or so after that and try the big guns, soy and then corn. Frankly, I'm quite scared to try soy and corn, so I'll take the other challenges first.

So far he has outgrown his milk allergy, tried eggs for the first time at the age of 3.5 and we've tried fish this past year as well. His food options are getting so big, I may be able to actually cook a meal without reading the ingredients list first. I don't remember when I was able to do that before. I'm giddy :)

Bliss, pure bliss!!

Guess what I got today!! If I could post a giant smiley face, I would ;).

Our washing machine died over a week ago. The mountain of dirty laundry kept getting bigger and bigger, I think we ended up with a pretty impressive mountain range actually, hehe. To my utter amazement my father-in-law bought another front loader washer. He said the price was too good to be true so he couldn't pass it up. Luckily enough for us, Stu's siblings all had working washing machines so we got the "old" (less than 4 years old) front loader, woo-freaking-hoo!!!

Here is the beauty, isn't she gorgeous? :)

I have done almost every dirty article of clothing, sheets, towels and blankets in my entire house! I have two loads to go. Why is this so amazing? It should've taken me two days to do this much laundry since I was so far behind. I seriously sit and watch the washer spin, so relaxing and amazing to me, hehe.

I think I may actually do a happy dance once the laundry is all put away tonight. Woot!!

A heart wrenching story

I don't know if you have heard of "Team Hoyt" its a father/son team that enters triathlons (like the ironman) and marathons and the like. The dad does all the physical work but the son is the inspiration. Its truly amazing what these two accomplish.

This is a great tribute to them.

Makes me tear up anytime I read an article or see an interview with them.

I'll edit this post later if I can find the latest article that explains things better than I.

It seems that I have nothing to blog about. I'm not a very good writer, so I can't turn day to day things into a funny post. So here I sit staring at the screen thinking I should blog, but coming up with nothing to say.

L wanted her hair cut yesterday, I made her wait the whole day incase she decided to change her mind. She didn't until after we were done, lol. Its really cute if I do say so myself, just a regular bob haircut.

Little man decided to fix his hair yesterday, went in the bathroom and got a brush wet (with water, phew, lol) and "spiked" his hair. Tried to get a pic, but he caught me, lol.

M saw me take a pic of little man and wanted a pic of himself cleaning his room. I guess he wants proof that he does listen from time to time ;).

See........nothing to really blog about. But I get a gold star for trying, right? ;)

Poor little M

M was sobbing laying on the couch, we all tried to figure out what was bothering him so much, with no luck. I finally got him to tell me what was wrong. "My Peter Rabbit toy doesn't work, I miss it!" I hold him and hug him for awhile, trying not to gigle the whole time. I'm not cruel, its just funny how randomly he'll be so upset over stuff like this.

The Peter Rabbit toys battery died over a year ago, ha!

4, 5 and 6 hours

Thats how much sleep I've had the last 3 nights. 3 days of work down 4 more to go. I'm so tired. I just sit here at my desk spacing out, accomplishing nothing. I've tried napping and just can't :(

I stupidly told L that I'd take her and her cousin swimming today because last week I wasn't able to. Now all I want to do is sleep, not spend my afternoon at the local pool with atleast 4 kids to watch, sigh.

I am reading everyones blogs still, but I'm too lazy to comment most of the time. I do have all of next week off, so watch out, lol.

Because I'm the Queen and I said so!

I made a joke yesterday about Daddy having to listen to me because I'm the Queen. Here is the following conversation that I had with M, my soon to be 6 year old.

M "You are the Queen? Then Daddy is the King and Kings rule the Kingdom."
Me "Nope, thats what they want you to think. But the Queen usually tells the King what to do."
M "Yeah because kings are usually old, fat and just sit on their throne. Queens are young, pretty and smart."
Me "Yep, thats right. But not all Kings because Daddy works hard and itsn't fat, right?"
M "YEAH!" hehe

Thats my boy :)

I got pulled over today, eek!

I was speeding, accidentally (mostly, hee). I usually got about 5 over the speedlimit, unless its a school zone, but I was going down a hill and went 33mph in a 25mph zone. I realized it and looked up to see a police officer, crap!

So he pulls me over, after doing a semi dangerous move, but I guess its ok since he's a cop ;). And asks about my license plate, phew! Our new license plates had yet to arrive and our windows are tinted so dark that he couldn't see the temporary tag. Luckily I'm a good driver, usually :P, so I had no tickets on my record or any warrants, hee! So he let me go and told me to call on my license plates.

I had dh call, he is awesome, and the plates were in. Now I'm totally legal and happy again :)
