Trade you What???

I always find it funny how little boys can be so competitive. I guess I can remember being somewhat competitive as a child to a certain extent, but it seems like my boys are always trying to out-do one another. For instance, if one of them jumps for no particular reason, he just wants to jump, one of the other boys will have to try to out-jump him! They do it with everything! They are always trading things too. When school was still in session this past year my oldest son came home with some Pokemon cards. He said that the boys at school are always trading them. So, being the nice Mommy that I am I have been buying them each their own Pokemon cards to trade with their friends. The baby doesn't care about them yet, he just wants to bend them and eat them when he gets his little hands on them. I don't really think our (almost) 4 year old cares a whole lot about them, although he likes to pretend to. His older brothers are always pulling fast ones on him like...Older Brother: You trade me … [Read more...]

Sweet little conversations….

I like to think of myself as a pretty sneaky mom that is somewhat on top of things. We have baby monitors in the boys bedrooms, our bedroom and the living room so that when we are sitting downstairs and the boys are in bed we can hear exactly what is going on. The boys like to try to whisper so that we can't hear, but to be honest I can understand what they are saying better when they whisper. You can't fool Mommy! So they are laying in bed tonight and I'm sitting here listening to their little conversations they are having. It's pretty funny to listen to them talk. I really don't understand what they are getting at or what the point of their conversations are, but they are talking and giggling, so they must just get each other. It's great! As I'm sitting here listening to them with a smile on my face the baby climbs down off of my lap (he is awake because he took a late nap today) and crawls over to Daddy. As he is climbing up on Daddy he is saying "Momma, Momma, Momma!" Daddy is … [Read more...]

What will they come up with next?

We spent all day indoors today. After such a busy weekend we needed a day at home to just sit and relax. Well, relaxing is what I had planned, but I should have known there wasn't going to be a whole lot of relaxing happening on my end. This morning I snuck out of bed at 7am. I was really quiet and crept down the steps so I didn't wake anyone up. I actually got to drink 2 cups of coffee before anyone came running down the steps! I really don't know how they can wake up with so much energy! It's like their little eyes open and they just JUMP out of bed and RUN down the stairs! The boys decided to get creative in the kitchen today. They had asked for chocolate milk after lunch, so I poured them each a glass of chocolate milk. I went into the other room to pick up some things that were laying around. I hear one of the boys giggling, which usually is a sign of something going on that I'm not going to think is so funny. So, I sneak into the kitchen (I want to see what is going on before … [Read more...]

Birthday Party and Chuck E Cheese all in one weekend!

What a fun weekend it was for all of us! We started with a birthday party on Saturday, which seemed to be a big hit! I think everyone had a lot of fun! We had a cake with a fishing theme on the front. Our birthday boy loves to go fishing with Daddy and Pap pa and he was excited when we saw this cake at the store! Yes, I bought the cake! With all that we had going on this past week I decided that it would be easier for me to just pick a cake up while I was in town. Of course, I could have saved myself a LOT of money had I made it. I guess sometimes convenience is worth it though! There were a total of 14 kids at the party! They all had a lot of fun with the pinata! Our birthday boy picked out a Transformers pinata. Here are pics of a few of the boys taking the bat to the pinata. Our birthday boy received a lot of great gifts! He had a lot of fun opening them all up and then playing with them with all of his cousins afterwards! He is especially fond of his new frog!!! Thanks Jess and … [Read more...]

Finally Friday!

It's funny how a quick trip to town with 4 boys can end up taking up the whole day. We woke up around 8am this morning, which is actually sleeping in around here. I was so happy that they let me sleep in a little because the baby had me up pretty late last night. I think his teeth were bothering him because once I used the orajel swabs on him and gave him a little bit of Tylenol he was fine. Thank goodness! Anyways, back to what I was saying...I prepared breakfast for all of the boys and after cleaning up all of our breakfast dishes I sat down behind my computer to pay some bills while the boys watched some morning cartoons. (At this point they are still a little mellow because they haven't been up long, but after about the first cartoon they are off and playing!)My oldest decided to make everyone subs for lunch today (which consisted of a hotdog bun with ham and cheese and mustard or ketchup, and he put banana peppers on mine...yummy!) The boys love to help out in the kitchen! After … [Read more...]

Oh my…Oh my!!!!

Where do I even begin tonight? Ok, here goes...We are all sitting in the living room watching television. Our oldest had turned the tv to a Nickelodeon show, Malcolm in the Middle. I'm not sure I have ever actually seen this show, and I'm trying to get the baby to sleep, so I'm not actually watching a whole lot of it. The boys are just sitting here watching the tv, and I must say they are very into it. And then all of a sudden our 6 year old says, "What is sex?" My oldest, who is almost 9 is giggling, and our almost 4 year old is just sitting there. My jaw is about to drop to the floor as I'm yelling for my hubby to get in the room to help me out! How do you answer this sort of question when you are speaking to 3 little boys all under 9!? So, I'm still thinking and still have not answered the question, and my darling 6 year old says, "What Mom, just tell us." Our almost 9 year old says I know what it means as he is giggling a little more. I ask him to whisper in my ear just exactly … [Read more...]

Happy 6th Birthday!

We had a birthday boy today! This morning he came creeping down the steps and into the living room. I wished him a Happy Birthday, probably a little louder than I should have given he had just woke up, but it was means to celebrate! He looked at me sort of with one eye completely opened and the other half open/half shut. There was this real look of confusion on his sweet little half asleep face. I don't think it had quite hit him that today actually was his birthday. We had been talking about his birthday coming for so long that I don't think he really ever thought it was going to get here. Of course, once he was fully awake (which didn't take long at all)he made it a point to let everyone know all day long that it was his birthday! I believe birthdays last about a week or so around here. At least that is how it seems. It's a lot of fun, but once they are over I feel whooped! We are having his big birthday party on Saturday and on Sunday we are off to Chuck E Cheese! I'm hoping we can … [Read more...]
