Life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride...

Wednesday, November 30, 2005



Put a roast w/ all the fixins in the crockpot ths morning. Plugged it in, turned it on high and walked away. I expected to find a nice tender juicey roast waiting for me after a busy day. BUT NO!! I find room temperture roast w/ browned potatos and cold water. I am so pissy right now. So the kids are eating hotdogs and fruit for dinner. I don't have time or the ability (sick clingy baby on hip) to cook.
I am just so pissed. Not sure if its b/c now i have to scrounge something up for dinner or that i wasted such a yummy looking roast.

Mrs. fun has two sick kids. With a sniffle here and a sniffle there. Here a sniffle, there a sniffle. Here a cough there a cough, everywhere a cough cough.
pass the wine, the whiskey, the ice cream. Anything!!!

I have decided that the xbox has got to go. I am taking it and putting it up tonight. I am so tired of being asked if they can play it when the know they can't. The rule is you can't play it on school days. Since they had 4 days with it, they've asked the last 3 mornings and 2 nights if they can play it. I say no and they melt,just melt and act out. So i figure if its gone they won't ask and that will be one less melting/tantrum in a day.
Mr. Fun also likes to play xbox but he says he can play those games on the laptop so that was what made my final decision.

BYE BYE XBOX!!

Baby, its cold outside



I made Mr. Fun get up and turn the heater on before I peeled myself out from under the covers. Winter is here. Time to get jackets out. Yes jackets not coats. We don't own coats. Cold here is 50 degrees. Sad,yes, still we freeze because we are used to 100+ degree weather.
This cooler weather makes me even more excited for Christmas. I am printing my cards,making list of what I bought for who, our decorations are up. Inside and out.
Bring on the Holiday! I can't wait. Last year it was a wonderful year and I am expectig this year to be more so.

Braving the crowds


T and I hit the mall yesterday. It really is nutty how many people can be in one mall. I do love the crowds and the hussle and bussle of it all tho. I didn't get much. Bought Mr. Fun a few things, a couple stocking stuffers and the kids holiday outfits.
I don't care for plaid BUT when I noticed Gymboree had all the right sizes I couldn't resist getting matching outfits. Now the shoot didn't go over as well as I had planned. Its hard to get four kids looking at the camera at once let alone getting them looking at the camera with decent looks on their face.
I told myself I wasn't going to get frutrated. By the end I was frustrated. I want that one perfect shot and I ddn't get it. Oh well theres always today and tomorrow to reshoot.
Here are some that I would love if just one little thing was different *rolling eyes* Its the perfectionist in me showing through.

The art of saving teeth





Not only did my filling fall out, I cracked the tooth above the gum line. So I have been referred to a periodontist for crown lengthening. If it can be done I follow up with an endodonist for a root canal. If the crown lengthenig can't be done and the tooth is cracked too far up then they will extract the tooth and I get the pleasure of getting my second bridge or my first implant. Either way,I see this sucking up Christmas money. I guess all i'll get is a painless tooth for Christmas. Won't hear me complaining either. I dread the dentist,even put it off. But once there I realize its not that bad. I've given birth 4 times,twice naturally. I can handle the dentist. I need to just suck it up.
Mr. Fun was able to have the kids while I went for my appointment. So that was a huge relief. He really comes through for me every time, gotta love him. Mr. Fun rocks.

What would you do?
My filling fell out on Saturday. I have an appointment tomorrow at 9am. BUT what to do with a 3 year old and 10 month old????????????
Mr. fun has to work. I can't take them with me. Doctors I can do but a dentist? not sure how that would work. Keep JJ out of school so she could watch them in the waiting room? Thats not fair to her.........
I have to get my tooth fixed, the pain is almost unbearable.

Times like this i miss home.

Sharing my Wy-Guy
And Mr. Fun's lost his mind

His true personality can be seen in the photos below. I am so thankful I get to capture this stage (please let it be a stage) with pictures.




Hes just lucky he can be sweet and is so stinkin' cute. We had a really good day today. Not a lot of resistance on his part. I put him to bed tonight with a smile on my face.


____________________________________________________
I am sorry I never updated Thursdays Thirteen. It was a crazy day and it continues to be a crazy weekend.

Mr. Fun decided to put the Christmas tree up today. I think hes lost his mind. This just means its coming down the day after if not Christmas night. I just get tired of the clutter. We aren't decorating yet. We are going to let T get use to it first. He really hasn't been too interested in it. I hope he continues on that path.

So when do you put your tree up and when do you take it down?

Wheres my easy button?


I glance at the clock and its just after 4 AM. I am being kicked in the back by a restless 3 year old. I ask him to stop, I tell him to stop I firmly tell him he needs to stop. He whines for a drink. I tell him to hush because hes going to wake his baby brother. He continues to be loud so I pick him up to transport him back to his bed. He only gets louder and wakes his baby brother up. I put him back in our bed so he doesn't wake the other kids. Two awake at this hour is plenty.
Mr. Fun is up and getting ready for an early shift at work, T is rolling around in bed happy and awake. Wy is sound asleep at the foot of our bed. T never did fall back to sleep.
I get the kids off to school and Wy decides to wake up grumpy. He demands milk and cartoons. He gets niether untill he can calm down and ask nicely.Before he can get ahold of himself he loses cartons for the day.
I decide after an early morning from hell I deserve a drive thru trip at starbucks. I get T buckled but Wy fights me every step of the way. Screaming and kicking and swinging his arms around.
I so want my own easy buttons when he acts out. I feel like such a failure as a parent when these episodes occur. I think its because they occur every freaking single day with this child. What am i doing wrong? What could I do different? I ask myself these questions everyday. Then I feel guilty for the not so nice thought I have. I just want to spank his butt and put him in the room for the day. I hate spanking but with him its all I want to do.He acts out so much that the gentle disciplining is exhausting. I just want to spank him and call it a day. I don't because he only acts out more if I do. I want to yell at the top of my lungs, I want to scream, I want him to stop fighting everything. I say yes he says no I say stop he says go. I am mentally and physically exhausted.
I have an enoromous amount of patience, I get told this by many. Well, i'm about dry. I need a vacation away fom Wy. This saddens me. I don't feel the need to get away from the other three,just Wy.He makes every day life difficult. I can't take much more. I keep telling myself to take it one day at a time, one hour at a time even one minute at time. Just not sure how many more minutes I can take.
Yesterday he fought me on the following
1~what to eat for breakfast
2~gettig dressed,didn't want the underwear i got.
3~he didn't eat lunch because he didn't want what he asked for after a I fixed it
4~getting his shoes on
5~i put his milk in the wrong cup
6~cleaning up toys before school
7~taking a shower (did't want to)
8~getting out of the shower (didn't want to)
9~brushing teeth
10~dad gave him a towel he didn't like so dad gave him another towel,still wasn't good enough so he stood in the shower screaming for a good 5 minutes
11~staying in bed

And thats just the things that were a scene,not the little things that he fights me on that I don't feel the need to fight lke him opening the door himself. I really wanted to go shopping today and pick up my new lens. I just don't have the energy to try this with Wy in tow. I know it will be a fight. But man, I really want my new lens for the shoot today. Too bad the camera shop doesn't have a drive thru
;-) or maybe someone could loan me an easy button.

Two sick kids,no coffee...



After a long night spent sleeping(and i use that word loosely)with a feverish,restless three year old and a stuffed up nine month old with a hacking cough, i awoke to start my day without coffee.
It must be some cruel joke. I kept waiting for someone to jump out holding a venti nonfat, no whip white mocha with my name on it.
But nope my butt is still dragging and the kids are still sick.

Some asked for pictures and well my camera is out of commission right now. It has dust. Mr. Fun ordered a cleaning kit for me so hopefully I will have time to take Christmas pictures for our cards.
I thought I would share some pictures where the dust is not apparent.

My sweet JJ


My Prince T


My stubborn but adorable Wy


Mr. Solo ,G


And two more of T that i couldn't resist sharing.


He looks so big in this picture. Hes always kneeling like this and I finaly got a picture of it so i had to share.


I didn't attempt a shot of them all together because i didn't have help. Didn't make it to the park before Mr. Fun had to go to work. So I wasn't feeling brave enough.

----------+Three day weekends-

Seems we have a lot of them lately. I love it. Last night after baseball practice we went to dinner at TGIF's. VERY disappointing service. Won't go into details but at least the food was good. The boys actually ate their meal too. That rarely happens.
There were four tables in our group back behind the bar. All four tables had families of six. What are the chances of that? I said we must of all been feeling brave. All had young children too, a baby at each table. I have to say I was pleased at how well behaved all sixteen(wow thats a shitload of kids) of the children were,all stayed in ther seats and no outbreaks of whining or tantrums. It was a nice atsmophere, i enjoyed myself. I like to see other familys with four or more kids. Makes me feel less crazy and out of mind *wink*

Then we walked over to Target and bought T's third Christmas present. It is a dog with various buttons you push. He plays music and songs like if your happy and you know it and ABC's He fell n love with it,laughed,squealed and tried to eat it. So I bought it and JJ claims thats going to be from her.
I also bought me a magenetic dry erase calander and six different markers with magnets on them. In hops of being a little more organized. Each family member gets their own color. But when I went to start filling it out i noticed its damaged so have to exchange it. I also need to figure out the perfect place to hang it where I will see multiple times a day. (maybe n the computer screen,lol)

Today I am hoping to get some pictures of all four kids together. We are going to the park this morning,wish me luck. Its practice for our Christmas cards. I am hoping to find a pose that I can get all four at least looking at the camera and holding still. (HAHAHA,like thats gonna happen)

So who unloads dirty dishes??


That would be your one and only,Mrs. Fun.

Mr. Fun arrives home from work and reaches for a glass. He asks why it looks so icky as he rubs it. I look down to the open dishwasher that I am loading. Thats when I realize theres still soap in the closed soapdish.

Seriously,I unloaded the dishwasher and never realized or remembered I didn't start it the night before. And to make it worse,are you ready for this? I drank coffee out of a mug taken from that dirty dishwasher this morning. EWWWWW!!!!

Wy was helping me clean today and a plate was lost in the process. So he was convinced that playing in his room was much more fun then helpng mom clean.


I'm convinced theres a little devil in all of us.

It's the simple things


Last night we were invited to a free family concert at a friends school. The kids had a blast. Music,food,dancing and good company. As we pulled in the garage, I noticed T sleeping holding on to a balloon. He looked so content. I had to snap a picture before sliding the string out of his hand and disturbing his sleep.
Kids are so content with the simple things in life. Rain puddles,mud pies,flower picking and balloons. As we grow older we lose the contenment that such little things used to bring us. Why is this? Do we just get busy? Do we want more beacuse we know theres more out there ?
I am very content with my life right now. As I looked around I realized how much I have and wonder if I would be so content without it................

Damn Construction!!!



6:45AM....bang boom crash!!! T wakes up crying. Anyone that has a baby knows when they wake if they are crying you are in for a long day. Today was the 3rd day T woke up crying because of the construction on the street by our house.
Isn't there a law about noise and disturbing the peace before a certian hour in the morning. 6:45 AM is just too early to be woken up by construction.
I feel like walking out there with crying baby and handing him off. Think they would get the hint? Or maybe find out where they live and play really loud music outside their bedroom window at midnight when they are trying to sleep.
And I can't even figure out what they are doing besides tearing up the street and tearing down a wall. But on a positive note, its slowed down the speeders that whip up and down the street.
