Well look at the time..

Well lets do a little recap as its been almost a year since I have posted..

I no longer work at the day care. My son got a "this isnt working out" speech because of his countless hours of gracing us with his (loud) presence while in the midst of screaming uncontrollably. I mean I know im a babe magnet but it was getting ridiculous.

After having had the great joy of living with my family for the first year of marriage we got together enough money to move out. It was tons of fun having to go up 5 stories opening several doors and having my adorable son running around like a lunatic getting used to the place. With just my husband and I doing the moving.

We got a cat who has a weird fetish with feet. However she seems to always stop biting my husbands toes after the first lick. I pretend not to know why but generously encourage him to take a shower.

Ive been to court more times than I care to ever go. Ive been taught by talking cucumbers and tomatoes and have learned the most through a 3 foot tall boy who laughs when he farts.

Ive been a wife, a mom, a labor coach, a maid of honor, a designated caregiver incase of death, and a role model (not sure how good that last ones working).

I've also been stern, broken hearted, disappointed, and a failure.

But through it all I found out that I am me.

There's no help for us...

So my husband and I are taking part of a marriage counseling course at our church. It is a group course with several couples involved. You go in and they have a romantic dinner set up for you and your spouse. The table is decorated with candlelight and rose petals. Of course my husband burps during the middle of the meal which sends the rose petals flying. lol. I look at situations like that and think.. boy there is no helping us. lol

Battle Scars

Now we moms are kind of a different breed. We do the impossible on a daily basis. We manage to catch toddlers as they are falling out of their highchair. We can make dinner while dealing with tantrums. And we sprain our wrists over doing so much laundry. Yes this is my life. I sprained my wrist today folding about 10 loads of laundry. I tried to think of a more heroic story but I knew no one would believe me so it was short-lived. My son has been learning the strangest things. He now dips his cereal in milk. How he learned this, I have no idea. My husband claims to have nothing to do with it, but I have a hard time believing him.

We have pretty much broken in all the christmas toys. It amazes me some of these toys that they come up with and how some of them are just so creepy. He got a elmo doll that eyes light up when it talks. As soon as my husband and I saw this we broke out the perminant marker but unfortunatly it didnt work as well as we'd hope, actually it didnt work at all.

However, I am proud to announce that my son is showing signs of OCD. Just like his mommy. He is so funny and wants things to be perfect and go back in their right spot. Its so funny to watch him put his cup in the cup holder and make it perfect.

The other day my husband was trying to discipline him and I dont know how parents do it sometimes. He tried so hard but its just so difficult to "yell" at a toddler. He just looks up at us with the most innocent face we have to turn around to try and not laugh.

I am weening him off his binkie. He has done really well with it. It stays in the crib and never comes out. So he has it during naps and bed and when it is time to wake up he gives his teddy a hug and throws him in the crib and then puts his binkie in the crib and waves goodbye to them.

Anyway, it has been a month since I have updated so this post is a bit long and scrambled, but here it is.
