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

Good News

I don't normally like posting on here unless I have photos. So... since I did not have a photo that I took, I scoured the internet to give you this doozy!
Ready for the good news? After searching for nearly two months, I have found a job!!! I get to work at a local rehab and comfort care facility. My patients are all short term and generally on the younger side of old age.... if that makes sense. haha. I am thrilled to be working! I am excited to put my skills to new use and become a better CNA! M is very excited to have me working since he does not have a job yet and if things go the way they need to for our family, I'll have a second job by tomorrow working as a home health aid for hospice patients. I'll be the sugar mamma! I'm getting on my way to becoming a CNA in the hospitals

All in all though, we are doing good here in Utah. The weather is finally improving. We're figuring out how to restructure our lives that were kind of thrown into a blender when we found out that M was being laid off due to company restructuring. I sometimes think that he has not been able to get a job because the Lord needs me to be the one working for now so that he can go to school more and get our little family through his education more quickly! Time will tell what He has in store for us though. This place that I am working at never hires CNAs. I was told at least 3-4 times by different people that they never hire new CNAs. Divine intervention on my behalf? Maybe. 

I kept thinking about my little old lady picture up there and decided I wanted to peruse my pictures and see if I had any I hadn't shared yet. And guess what! I found some! I have such cute kids. They are so fun and growing so wonderfully and having lots of fun with their Daddy, who has now temporarily become Mr. Mom.

 Ninja turtles E!

 He wanted to wear a red headband like me. He does a good job pulling it off doesn't he!

My cute little big, A. He reminds me often that he is not little.
