Happy Halloween

Oh the joys of kids in costumes...LOL. Princess told me a few days ago that she wanted to be an ugly girl???? Where'd she get that one? She is now purple Rock-n-roll Fairy.....LOL. Purple dress, tall black boots and wings. Once I figure out pictures I'll post ones for the kids dressed up. LittleMan is the SCREAM dude and Monkey is a Ninja/ Fun Times.

Princess: Mommy, I carry my Ello (Hello) Itty (kitty) basket and I go to the doors and I say "Trick or Treat" so I can get candy on Halloween.
Mommy: Yes dear you do.
Princess: And I EAT it!
Mommy: When we get home and you get one or two peices.
Princess: No I eat all of my candy in my basket.
Mommy: We'll see

Isn't easier sometimes to just put it off until they can understand later that you in fact only mean to allow them to have 1 or 2 peices....LOL.

Apple Seeds

So they are all eating apples. My 6 yr old insists that he is going to plant the seeds out front to grow a tree. I say that is a great idea but we won't live here when the tree starts to grow and no one will take care of it. He finishes up. As he leaves the table he says "When I turn 18 I will eat an apple, get the seeds and plant it in our back yard."

My 3yr old just said "I have a seed, Mommy. I found it myself. I am going to plant it out in the backyard." I said Honey we can't plant tree's on base. She replies "Okay I will put it back in my apple for later. With his brothers and sissers."

Crazyiness runs in the family

Okay so it's 9:30PM and I am sititng on the couch watching tv before heading up to bed. All of a sudden C walks into the living room carrying one shoe and a stuffed puppy. He looks at me and sits on the couch. I asked him what he was doing and he kept looking at me. I said whats with the shoe? He just continues to stare at me. I said go back to bed. Nothing. C go back to bed it's night time. Nothing. I said pick up your shoe and your puppy and go upstairs and go to bed. He gives me a dirty look but picks up his shoe and puppy and goes back upstairs. SO I quickly call Shua who I had just gotten off the phone with and tell him what happened. "Oh yeah he does that all the time. " He says. WHAT! Thanks for telling me.

I have on occaision done this to my parents - my mother will tell me about converstations that I have had with them. Oh boy! My son is crazy too. LOL

Report cards and Red Devil

Parent Teacher conference's were last night. They went very well and I am so happy with this new school. (see Stacy not all D11 schools suck - just Monroe and Russell) The boys are doing great. Monkey has all P's and 1 P+. LittleMan has 4 A's, 2 B's and 1 C. His C is in writing - he forgets how to spell the simple words when writing paragraphs. This is his first "letter" report card and darn it I think he did just great. They both are above benchmark in all tests they give them.

Chef - oh boy - so he calls Wednesday night "I get to be an aggressor tomorrow. I can't wait!" I said okay honey whatever floats your boat - you have fun and don't kill too many of your friends." So last night he calls. "I am so sore! It's my fault though. " I said yep it is so did you have fun. He replies "Yes! I'll see you tomorrow." Okay dear night. I swear Red Devil was just a way for grown men to play Cowboys and Indians.

God bless our men fighting everyday for our freedom and bring them home safe. Two in particular - David and Paul. Welcome home Nick!

Disclaimer: No one said I could spell or write so at least LittleMan comes by it honestly! LOL

Where's the time go?

I keep forgetting about this blog. Though I don't have many readers ...(LOL Thanks Sara!) Ummm what has been going on. NADA and a whole lot. My daycare went through an overhaul. All new kids - ALL GIRLS!!!!!!!!! OMG...LOL. It's been fun though and my daughter is happy. The girls have been awesome and for the most part no drama (saving that for the teens years). Did I mention thier all cute too. hehe. One reminds me of the Z girls.

The boys have thier parent/teacher conferences set for tomorrow night. I am excited because I know for the most part the reviews will be great. They are both enjoying this new school so much more then the one from last year. The teachers are so much more involved.

My oldest is getting too big. I think he takes his role as the "Man of the house while Daddy is out of town seriously."

So on Saturday there wasn't much trash in the inside can so I asked Ch'neu to carry it out for me. Fast forward to Monday. I am pulling the bag out to take outside and Ch'neu offers to take it out for me - I said okay as long as it isn't too heavy. He said no I got it. (sigh - so big) He comes back in and I say "Do you think you can move the cans to the curb like Dad does?" "Do they come today?" " No tomorrow morning." "Okay - I can do it" So I'm waiting and watching and I see he has took both cans out front. Okay so why isn't he inside? I run out to see what he is messing around with and he is taking the neighbors can to the curb for them WITHOUT BEING ASKED! (insert AWE here). He is growing up and trying to be such a caring guy.

This of course all stems after an afternoon of being teased cause he likes a girl and me trying to explain to him that by being a "Cool" guy he just has to let it roll off his back and if he likes her say "Yeah I do....SO?" or if thier just friends saying "She is my friend and she is a girl. SO?" LOL Goodness help me - I am not ready for this!
