A New Beginning

So this blog has been so good to me, but I think it is time to move on. I started another blog if you wanted to take a look. If you like then spread the word. If you don't then no biggie :) It is called "Dear Whatever...Love Amanda" Check it out!

Thank you for reading!!

The title says it all. There is a mountain of it sitting in my laundry room. I actually close my eyes when I open the door. Funny thing is it was all done on Tuesday. Even down to the cloth napkins that had been sitting in the laundry basket for about a month. I guess I am just going to wait till the Laundry Fairy comes and takes care of it. Either that or I am training the girls early :)

Day 1

Well summer is here (and I would love to say "The time is right for dancing in the streets) and today is Day 1. so far Sammie has ripped my mouse pad, Julia threw a pen and it went all over the wall and the floor, there is a huge mess upstairs, and right now they are banging on the walls. You know what? I could care less :) I want a good summer and we all deserve it! I am sure I will have my moments, but right now I am making myself be positive for everyone's sake. Now talk to me next week when Jon leaves for business. I might need some reminding about this post :)

I forgot I had a blog for a little while. Computer crashed, I went away, busy with school stuff, I totally forgot. I will update now that I remembered.

Potty Training Sucks!

Well I am at the point again in my life where I am the Princess of Potty. Sammie was right there for at least 2 months, then they moved her into another class at preschool and I feel like we are starting all over again. When I look back on Julia, I can not tell you how I potty trained her because honestly she did it herself. Sammie on the other hand has proven to not be so inclined. I realize that they all have their own timing on this sort of thing, but she knows what she is doing- she just chooses not to. So I am kinda back to square one. Asking, reminding, telling, sometimes raising my voice, all to get her to sit on the potty. I will soon revisit every bathroom in town, making sure they are all convenient for when she has to go. So please wish me luck- she needs to be fully potty trained for our next and VERY cheap preschool (see why I am stressing) I hope soon I will be the Princess of Panties instead :)

An Eyeball is Still an Eyeball

If you haven't even watched "Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmer" on the Travel channel- check it out. You will be totally grossed out, but fascinated at the same time. I am telling you though no matter how well you deep fry, stew, cover in chocolate sauce, or smoother it in cheese- eating an eyeball is still eating an actual eyeball. Even if I wasn't told what it was, I am pretty sure I would know it was something gross. I wonder how many times he has gotten sick or how much his bill for Imodium is :)

7 years

Today you turned 7. 7 I say! Wow has time gone by. I remember the first night that we had brought you home from the hospital and how your Daddy and I just stared at you. You cried for the next three months straight :) I could have never imagined the kind of little girl you would become. You love all the girlie stuff that I do- makeup, clothes, listening to Hannah Montana as loud as we can in the car. Yet you have your rough and tumble side- riding your bike, playing with the boys. You take after your Dad with your artistic abilities (because I have none) and we are so impressed with all that you have learned this year. I love when you cry during the sad parts in movies or how you must pet every animal you come in contact with. You are so much like me in so many ways that it is hard to stay mad at you. I always wanted a little girl and you were my wish come true. Thank you so much for making my life, along with your Daddy's and Sissy's life complete. We love you and hope that your birthday was one to remember. I love you!
