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

Where We're At

I was just thinking to myself today as I was reading another blog, that I haven't really updated what my little munch-kins are like right now.... developmentally of course. A will be 4 in June! That used to be SUCH a long time ago, but now, that's like 2 months!! Yes people, I know it's May and that the next month is June so technically only one month away, but when you're born at the end of the month of June and it's the beginning of May-- that makes it 2 months. He is still very excited about this and wants everyone to come. Not exaggerating. If you have known A in any way, shape or form, he wants you there to celebrate with him. He keeps telling me that he wants, "lots and lots of people, Mom! And a watermelon for my birfday too!!" A's favorite food currently is: pantakes, tuptakes, and muffins! He would be the happiest boy alive if that is all he ate. He is still the bossiest one of this house. We are learning how to deal with it... I personally am not learning very well, because I like to be the boss. A reminds me daily now, aside from when his birthday is, that he is also going to be going to school on the school bus--- which is going to be Mommy and Daddy, but he doesn't know this yet. This may prove to be a big disappointment to him in the coming months.

E is almost 2 1/2 now! That is just crazy to me! He is my little ornery little man. Yesterday I put him in a shower. He decided halfway through that he didn't want a shower, so he switched it to a tub. Later during his bathing session I walked out to do something else, a few minutes later I hear someone breathing behind me. It was E, all done with his bath and butt naked behind me! He was very proud of this too. I wrapped him in a blankie and took him downstairs to drain the tub and dress him, but to my surprise, he'd already drained the tub for me. :) This morning he took his diaper off for me. . . that was scary, with all the poo begging to fall off his naked bum onto my floor. He got another shower for that. E essentially likes everything his brother likes. The things he particularly stands out though and claims as his own loves are: hot cereal- unless it bakes his tongue off, bananas, and any food item that is placed in front of him when he is hungry. He's not too picky; we hope it stays like this or he might starve a little bit, kind of like his brother does some nights.

Daddy M and I are doing well. We're working out how to afford sending Daddy to school, pay for bills, keep a place to live, and feed our children. Currently I am the only one working; Daddy teaches tennis, but only temporarily. I have two jobs, so once both of them start to really get going we should be fine. We would really like to keep building our savings instead of slowly siphoning money out of it. I also think once I become a more experienced CNA, which only comes with time- that I'll be able to get paid more and find places that will be more willing to negotiate with me. That could just be wishful thinking too. haha

All in all, we are surviving and loving our new warm weather! I swear, if it snows again, I'm going have to go kill someone's puppy. :P
