"Me Time" is coming to an end....

The Hubby and the Guyser have been gone since Friday. They went to the farm. Let me tell ya, it has been a little slice of heaven!!! I have gotten SOOOOOO much done!!! I know, I should have sat with my feet up, but there was just so many things to get done! I sorted through all the baby clothes, that was a daunting task, and pulled out the gender neutral stuff. It has been so strange to think, "I need to go to the store" and to be able to just jump in the car and do it!! The boys will be home sometime later tomorrow. It is a long 10 hours or so in the car, but the Guyser is a trooper when it comes to traveling. Hopefully the Hubby took some pictures for me to post! Later!

Last Night's Sleep Inventory

The Guyser has taken to sleeping in his "house." It is a Playhut Tent thingy he got for Christmas. Sometimes he sleeps on the floor in it, sometimes on the bed in it. Every night there is certain items that he feels he needs in there with him. This was last nights inventory:

1 giant Pooh Bear
1 giant Tiger
1 large blue Tonka truck
1 Lightening McQueen
1 John Deere Tractor
2 GeoTrax railroad cars
4 MatchBox cars: 1 mini Cooper, 1 Audi, 1 Mazarati, and 1 SUV
1 VW Beetle
2 cups water (mom didn't know he already had one in there...)
1 pillow
1 Blanket (or "nap" as he calls it)
1 Nigh-nigh (see a prior post)

It reminds me of the movie "The Jerk" : "All I need is this chair.... and this paddle ball game.... and this lamp....." Life is never dull with Toddler!

Parenting 101

Whenever I start doubting my parenting skills, I just look to celebrities to make me feel better!
Mr. Baldwin is such a super cool Dad! I wish he were mine!!

Poor daughter.... as if being 11 years old isn't hard enough!

saddened and sickened........

My last post said something about letting teens go home with babies. Well, at least those babies go to a home, I guess. Read this and you will see what I mean. This story saddens and sickens me beyond anything I have heard lately. The amount of fear, anger and rage this girl must have felt to do what she did... It is so bad she didn't know about "Safe Haven" laws..... Oh this just makes me want to cry...

Newton's 3rd law, Guyser style

Guyser ingests an undeterminable amount (large) amount of candy from the babysitter's Easter basket, while Mom is gone for 2.5 hours.
Quote (from sitter) "It's (candy) all gone!!"
Equal & Opposite Reaction:
Guyser is UP (WAY UP) until 12:45 am!!!

And they send teenagers home with babies...... yikes......

Shower time

Last night, the girls here had a baby shower for myself, and one of the other wives who is pregnant. (There is FOUR of us pregnant right now!!!) It was so much fun! I got things that got worn out with the Guyser (thermometer, monitors) Things I need (diapers and wipes) and things I just wanted this time around (new swing, bottle warmer, a bottle of wine!) :) It was so much fun... and starting to become more real. I mean I feel this little person moving all the time, but I think of what I yet have to do before it arrive and it is overwhelming! We will find out Thursday what date the OB wants to schedule the c-section, so that will be exciting! More later, I guess.

Guyser Terminology

This Folks, according to the Guyser, is a called a
(I haven't the foggiest idea where he would have heard that expression....)

Ya see those things coming out of the cow's head, by the ears? Well, if you ask the Guyser what they are, he clearly and confidently answers:
