We had some visitors over and of course A and E were bouncing off the walls. Head butting their legs, jumping on their back and freaking out. So I chucked them both in the kitchen and told them, "You are out of control." Angrily A turns to me, hands on his hips and snaps, "No Mom! YOU are out of control!"

A comes up to me and tells me very officially, "Mom, I'm smarter than you. I'm not smarter than Dad, but I am smarter than you."

A and E were wrestling today and it was A's day. He was doing really good keeping his little brother subdued, although E put up a pretty good fight. Once they were finished, Daddy and I told E he did a really good job! He looked over at Daddy M angrily from the floor and said, "No, I din not!!" he flailed his arms on the ground and continued, "He's still alive!"

E and A were playing T-ball today with A's new gear. I of course laid down the rules. No hitting anyone with the bat. No swinging at the ball until every body and body part is clear. Simple enough. Not 5 minutes into it, I hear a blood curdling scream from A. E runs inside, eyes big, and says, "I din'n know what I was doing!" Big brother had a pretty good goose egg on his head.

Thanks for the Help

Reason to Celebrate

I am so proud of my husband! He's been sick for almost a year now and he still tries to go to work, he still tries to help around the house and he is still an affectionate husband, even though most days just standing up makes him want to yarf.

He has done more than his share to keep our little bunch fed, warm and clothed. This year McKay was under review for a bonus! I'm not entirely sure how they determine them. I think its based off the amount you made the previous year, tied in with your performance and maybe how long you've been with the company. He messaged me the day he found out how much and asked me to guess. I was thinking that perhaps it would be in the ballpark of $200-$400, it was closer to the value of a big screen TV.... a big big BIG screen TV!! I am so thrilled and so proud and am pretty sure this is as good as Christmas!

What a wonderful blessing for our family. We'll have to take a bit off the top to celebrate and then the rest goes into savings for the car that we were supposed to buy in December! :)
ok- yeah I wish! More like....
