From the mouth of a 3 1/2 year old...

Lately Blake has been coming up with lots of excuses as to why he does things. But my favorite one (okay it is my least favorite because I hear it 10 times a day) is this...

Me: Blake, why did you hit connor?
Blake: Sometimes I do that.


Me: Blake, why did you throw that?
Blake: Sometimes little boys do that.

UG! The other day I turned into a monster!

Me: Blake! Why did you do that? AND DON'T YOU DARE SAY "SOMETIMES I DO THAT!"

I really don't wake up and think.... "Hmmm, today I am gonna be a mean monster mommy and scream at my kid." I swear I don't. But lately? It is becoming easier and easier!?!

On the other hand, he has been doing some insanely funny things lately, so I don't stay mad too long. It is too hard to be mad when your son is saying

"Lions, and tigers, and bears... and hippopotamuses (sp?)".

Or singing the ABC's like William Shatner..."A... BC... DEF... G... HI... JK...etc." Breathy spaces in between each break.

I can't wait for Connor to start talking. Then they can talk to each other!

sleeping like a baby...

Do you know what I want? I want to be able to sleep soundly anywhere!
Connor slept this way (on the hand) for half an hour, and gpa Gary just sat there...
How cute!

enfamil and pampers coupons--need any?

Yeah, so i know this is not necessarily the best place to give you this info, but... it reaches the most people... i think.

I get a bunch of enfamil and pampers coupons in the mail. And I don't use either of those brands! Connor is sensative to lactose, so I need a special formula, and we have a ton of diapers.

So--if you or someone you know needs/wants these coupons, please let me know. I will send you/them the coupons in the mail. You may as well save the money that I am not able to!

my cute boys

Before Eric & Heather (Matt's brother & his brother's wife) and their family moved to Japan, we had pictures taken of all of the grandkids on my husband's side! We had a few with all the kids, and a few with each family.

Here is the picture with all four grandkids (Connor, Blake, Ethan and Kailey)

And the next ones are just of my stinkin' cute boys!
