Too Young

There is a little boy at church that is about a year or so older than C, and he has a crush on her. C doesn't like this very much though. She says the boy isn't allowed to like her and that he isn't going to be her boyfriend, lol. She had 3 reasons:

  1. He's just a kid
  2. He's not big enough to take her on a date
  3. He has to be as tall as Pawpaw to be her boyfriend

So there ya have it. My 4 year old will not have a kid for a boyfriend. He has to be an adult that can take her on dates. Guess she's stuck with Pawpaw and their "dates" every Wednesday to Dairy Queen for a while.

My Vents For the Day

Vent #1
If you ask me to babysit your kids and say you will drop them off at a certain time, let me know if you end up not needing me to watch them. I do have a life. I don't just sit on my butt at home all day long, and I do have things that I need to do and places I need to go. I am willing to watch your kids, but if you don't need me then I do have better things to do than to make sure I am at home when you are supposed to be here.

Vent # 2
If you are an adult, then you should not need to call me to tell me that you need to go to the doctor like I'm the one that needs to call to make an appointment for you. I call to make appointments for my kids because they aren't old enough. And I'm not going to hold your hand while you make that call to make the appointment. Nor am I going to drag all 3 kids along to hold your hand at that doctor appointment. If I can give birth ALONE, then you can tell the doctor alone that you are sick. I not only make my doctor appointments myself, I go to them by myself because I am an adult, and that is what adults do.

Vent #3
If you are well enough to drive all over town, then drive an additional 20 minutes from town to get to my house, then you are well enough to drive your own butt back into town. If you car broke down at my house that's one thing, but just not wanting to drive is not worth me corralling all 3 kids into my truck, then listening to them fight all the way into town and all the way back home.

Vent #4
If you don't have kids, and have never raised them, then do NOT tell me what I should and shouldn't be doing to raise MY kids. Raising kids and just being around kids are two totally different things. You may say now things like, "When I have kids..." but I can guarantee that you will change your tune once you have kids. I too used to be one of those that said, "When I have kids..." And especially don't tell me how to take care of my kids when you can't even take care of yourself!

Baby Birds

I discovered we have two bird families living on our front porch. On the right side, there is a nest in a planter with some newly hatched baby birds in it. I have no clue what kind though. On the left side there is another nest, inside another planter, with a baby bird in it that is so ugly it's cute, lol. The thing looks out and stares at me every time I'm on the porch now. I'm trying to get some pictures of them all, but at the same time trying not to get too close to get the pics.

21 lbs

My dad so nicely pointed out about a week ago that I am getting fat! I was nice and didn't point out that he is fat also...nope, not me, I would never do that (giving my innocent look here). So I finally decided to weight myself a few nights ago. It had been about 6 months or so since the last time I weighed myself, and my pants were starting to get a little snug back then. So I looked down at the numbers a realized that in the last 6 months I have GAINED 21 lbs!!!

What happened to the days of me being able to eat whatever I want, whenever I want!!!??? I want those days back. I love food way too much! I used to LOVE being able to eat anything and everything and never gain an ounce. The only other time I have weighed this much was at the end of my pregnancy with R! I never even got close to this much when I was pregnant with C & B.

So I guess I have to make some changes in the way I eat. I need to loose those 21 lbs and get back to where I was. I'm not really sure if I want to follow a diet though. I think I will just start with cutting back on how much I eat, cutting out almost all of my treats (like to maybe a couple times a week instead of 3 or 4 every day), and trying to drink mostly water.

Of course, I'm not changing a thing until Sunday. You see, there is a family reunion Saturday. And where there is a reunion, there is always food!

Wonderful Friday...NOT

My day started at 8 am, which was nice. But as soon as I woke up, R started talking. At the moment is it 6:55 pm, and he hasn't shut up yet! He has stopped talking for the time being, but the talking has been replaced by noise making. I don't know if he is just trying to drive me nuts, or if he is going to the world record of not shutting up.

While we were all outside playing today, B grabbed ahold of a hanging plant holder and pulled it down. The plant pot in it of course fell down, and konked C on the head. B thought this was the funniest thing. C, on the other hand, insisted that we get rid of B by sending him to jail. She said after we got rid of him, we could go get her a baby sister instead.

So now B is dancing around the house, using a tennis racket as a guitar, singing at the top of his lungs. I am ready for bed!!!

If I Were A Pizza

So I was going across all the various papers R brought home from cleaning out his locker and desk at school. One paper is made to look like a slice of pizza, and had written on there "If I were a piece of pizza..." So here is how R's paper reads:

"If I were a piece of pizza...I would be a poisonous pizza so people would not eat me If people eat me they are going to die."

Only a child of mine would write something like that.

Nothing Exciting

Nothing too exciting happened over the weekend. The kids did some fishing, and R helped Pawpaw and me do some mowing. R & C got to go to the park with my cousin Saturday, and he took them out for ice cream afterwards.

Anyway, I finally got more pictures of B's "boo-boos" on the computer. These are from 2 days after he got the stitches out. I still need to take pictures of how it looks now, but it is looking good. As you can see from these pictures, even 2 days after the stitches were taken out, it looked better than the day they were taken out. They only things I have been doing with his wounds is cleaning them with plain ole soap and water, then gently rubbing in a little pure aloe (not that stuff you get at the drugstore) and Vitamin E.

His head

His face just 2 days after the stitches were taken out.

And check out my other blog, Crystal's 3 C's, and see the newest baby blanket I have finished for a friend.
