Today

Drew has a mini-tournament in Birmingham today. It SNOWED on us on our way up there. Nice! LOL! It was in the 30’s and we froze. We played the #1 in the state and the other 2 were in the top 10 of the state. We tied against the #1 and the other 2 we …

Commitment

Drew was honored to be asked to be a player on the Auburn Thunder Travel Soccer Team this spring. Normally you have to pay and go through try-outs, but the coach of the team called Friday night. He said he had seen Drew play and has seen his competitive nature, skills, and speed. We sat …

Update on Oreo

I called this morning to check on Oreo and they said he was eating and jumping around. Yesterday he wouldn’t move hardly at all and just laid out. They said the doc wasn’t in yet, but they’d call me later. I just got the call and he’s fine, needs some meds for a few days. …

Prayers needed

Drew called me while I was driving home, saying he thought Oreo (his rabbit) was dead. He was crying and it was very traumatic. I got home and looked at him and saw that he was probably not going to make it, but I would take him to the vet. I was praying they could …

Exhausted!

I’m so tired. Today was a productive day! Yes, I say that with excitement because this week I’ve done pretty much…nothing. So today I had to get up early and take Drew to the dentist. He HATES going to the dentist, but he survived it and had NO cavities! Yay! They did say in 6 …

Throwing Away Everything

ACK! Why? Oh why? Does Alex (the 17 month old) insist on throwing EVERYTHING away! He thinks throwing things away is so fun. He’s thrown away socks, toys, shoes, etc! Does he throw away trash? NO!! So we have to be careful and watch the trash closely! “NO!” doesn’t work anymore. I’m having to swat …

Baby —-> Toddler

My baby is now a TODDLER! He has been walking for 3 weeks now and he’s getting faster and faster. Falling down…not a big deal (anymore)! He’s everywhere and into everything!! I thought it was bad when he was crawling, but it’s even worse now! At daycare he skipped the pre-toddler class and is now …

Walking?

I’m so freakin’ excited! Alex actually took more than 5 steps at once. He’s trying to walk. You just don’t know how excited that makes me! Well, you might…but… I’m just glad to see him making an effort and not being terrified, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed!

Can I Cry Now?

After lunch we went by Alex’s daycare to remind them that he’d be back Monday. They’re like, “Ohhh I bet he’s walking all over the place!” and I said Uh-no! So he’s going to be back in the same room he was back in May. I’m very upset by that! I could just cry. At …

My “Why Musts?”

1. Why must my children scream, yell, and hollar? 2. Why must they roll on the floor together until someone gets hurt? 3. Why must my toddler insist on butting heads with people? 4. Why must my toddler continue to put the ball in the specific spot in the corner where he can’t reach it? …
