What the hell is wrong with these people??

*picking jaw up off the floor, talking a shot of whiskey*(but not really it's 10am,lol) I am all hyped up by this and I am second guessing myself posting this and giving this evil more attention. But here goes.

I was over at the The Martin Times and ran accross a post about this Sick,demented,sick,disgusting Woman. It takes a while to load but I encourage you to take the time to watch it.
How do these people sleep at night? How do they look in the mirror and feel good about themselves? The church is a Baptist Church that's not related to mainstream Baptist, it has *almost* a hundred members and 80% of those members are related. The thought of this cult(yes, I say cult because its not a church,thats a disguise) growing scares the hell out of me. It makes me aware of the evil in this world and the fact that it comes in all forms.
I feel sadness and pain for these families that are trying to grieve and say goodbye to their loved ones. Then have to deal with protesters that have no business doing what they are doing. Yes, it's a free country, it is their right but then again........ What I also would like to know... what are they getting out of this? What do they hope to accomplish by doing this? Are they hoping to recruit some of these families by protesting outside these funerals?

MIAMI (Reuters) - A 76-year-old man claiming to be a doctor went door-to-door in a Florida neighborhood offering free breast exams, and was charged with sexually assaulting two women who accepted the offer, police said on Thursday.
I am laughing so freaking hard here. Seriously? A man comes to do your door and claims hes a doctor doing free breast exams and you let him in? Some stupid stupid people in this world. Well, okay two stupid stupid people in this world.
One woman became suspicious after the man asked her to remove all her clothes and began conducting a purported genital exam without donning rubber gloves, investigators said.
Okay, he got this far before one became suspicious. Are you freaking kidding me? Don't you think the removing of all your clothes would be the first flag ?Oh no wait, the man knocking on your door saying hes a doctor doing a free breast exam should of been enough.

WOMEN!!! Doctors don't do house calls anymore and if they did it wouldn't be for a free breast exam.

Loving your children for who and what they are isn't always easy

Last night I opted to stay home with T. I wasn't up to going to the ballgame. So Mr. Fun took the three older kids and invited his best friend and his daughter to go. Didn't want my ticket going to waste. They got home around 9PM and Wy was being Wy *sigh*. Lately I feel that I have lost my control on him. He doesn't listen, he's stubborn, he screams untill hes just about to throw up and nothing I do or say will stop him before he gets to that point.
I don't know exactly how to parent this child. I find something that seems to be working and a couple weeks in he decides that so said punishment doesn't phase him. The only thing that seems to work is takig XBOX away. Well, thats not fair to his brother who only gets to play it on weekends,anyhow. Taking away his toys seems to work but again his toys are his brothers toys. So I am punishing G when G hasn't done anything wrong.
So back to last night. I guess he wasn't a very good listener at the game and it continued when he got home.I did not give in but that doesn't make a difference, he's still going to be a challenge. Already this morning I had to walk away from him . I really want to turn and scream right back at him but what good will that do? Might make me feel better untill the guilt sets in for being a freakin moronic mom.So I walk away but that doesn't help the situation either because he follows me screaming louder.
My other children can take no for the final answer. My other children will do what they are told. They aren't always happy about it and they may fold their arms and pout but thats okay. I can handle their reactions. Wy's reaction is always over the top. Always full drama.
Heres a list of the daily struggles I have with him
~getting dressed
~putting shoes on
~eating breakfast
~going to the bathroom without me in their with him
~not drinking 5 glasses of milk a day (2 is plenty then he needs to drink water)
~picking up his toys or crayons and coloring books
~eating lunch
~going anywhere but school
~eating lunch
~getting out of the bath
~putting a pull up on or going to the bathroom before bed (he has his choice and chooses to do niether)
~and anything else I ask or tell him to do. Any request is followed with a whiney "I don't want to"
So I am exhausted and I have a feeling of desperation. His preschool teachers and all the moms that volunteer say he's so well behaved and the sweetest boy ever. This I am thankful for. But it is so embarrassing when he acts out in public and I have to drag his screaming self out of a store while trying not to drop T. Luckily this doesn't happen often but it happens.
When we are having a really bad day I feel like I am the wicked witch of the east and someone just poured water on me........I'm melting.........I don't want to fight with him all the time.........I just want him to take what I say as the final answer and move on..........I want to enjoy his childhood.........I don't want to dread him.............I love him for who he is but I want to enjoy him ...............

It's the feel good train, all aboard..........

I am feeling much better. Thanks for all the well wishes.
________________________________________________________

We had the pleasure of attending a baseball game tonight. It was a lot of fun despite our team losing. And if you can believe it we didn't get one comment about the number of children we have. I believe we need to mark this night down in the history books.

T has learned to turn his back on me when I have the camera
IMG_6575
still makes for a cute photo.

The three older ones wanted "face" painting but not on their face. WEIRDOS!!

Mr. Fun and JJ keeping score

I am so happy that my girl is a girly girl yet loves sports.
_________________________________________________________________

I do have a pet peeve to rant about, however.
If you are going to be in the left lane, also known as the passing/fast lane, then pass somebody or drive fast. And if there's a big ass vehicle on your ass take that as a hint to get the hell out of my way!!!! Learn to drive before you get behind the wheel,dickweed!!

Last home game.......what a blast......

To the dude behind me that wanted the Kings to win and said "NICE" about a half a million times. IN YOUR FACE! We kicked your ass. So take your "NICE" and shove it.
To the guy in front of us that kept commenting on the set of lungs my children have....well, we are at a hockey game and we are up 3-0. What do you expect them to do sit in their seats and be quiet, watch the game from home.
To the guy that took a picture of my cute little T in his Yotes Jersey, ASK before you do so......
Now to my sweet sweet funny as all get out little man T, PLEASE wait untill your mom is finished relieving her over full bladder before crawling under and out the bathroom stall. I tried to catch you by the foot but I couldn't do so without fear of peeing all over myself.
Thank you to the lady that stopped T by standing in the way of the open doorway.
G, please don't be such a grump when you wake up.....its a trait you got from your dad that you could stand to lose. And way to haul butt when that puck got away from you.
Wy, way to howl boy, you rock. You may drive me crazy most days but you sure know how to have a good time.
JJ, I never thought I would have a little girl that enjoyed taking score at a hockey game. It was a pleasure to watch you writing down each goal and penalty.
Mr. Fun, thanks for buying season tickets, can't wait to do it again next season.

And now the baseball games begin..........

I thought the art of sign language was lost....

He is now using signs in the right context. He asked for milk today by signing. I was so happy to add another sign to the list. Others include eat, more and bird.
Bird is his favorite. He sits in his highchair and signs bird. See we have what I call the "mating wall" outside our kitchen window. Birds are mating on that wall every damn day. I noticed that the bird sign is also used when he sees a dog, a cat, a horse, a cow and about any other animal for that matter. So I am working on the correct signs with him. Tonight we saw a cat, so I did the kitty sign. He looked at me, shook his head NO and did the bird sign.
So if its an animal its a bird to him. Its all good, I am just happy that he has decided to sign. My other boys were using sign lanuage alot more at this age. I really thought the art of sign language was lost with him.

But he's getting it. Thank goodness, theres nothing worse than a frustrated toddler trying to communicate and a frustrated mommy that doesn't understand.

Less IS more

I am not a whiz in the kitchen, its no secret. Tonight the kids wanted wafflesticks for dinner. Thats fine by me. So I made wafflesticks. But not without mishaps. I do this everytime *dumbass*

Mom, remember last time it overflowed
IMG_6438
actually i do now that it's doing it again.

second try was better
IMG_6439
And three times a charm.
IMG_6440
Don't mind the dust on the top of it, just shows you why I forgot about it overflowing.

Hopefully the next time I make wafflesticks (3 months from now) I will remember to not put so much in.
Don't they look yummy? They are Pecan Pumpkin Spice *yum*

But the *yum* verdict is still out with the little one.

I had to laugh at this one, its pretty much right on.

You Are a Fierce Femme

You have a wild side, and you aren't afraid to bring it out when the time is right.
But you also know when to hang back and keep your "crazy chick" persona in check.
In fact, some of your friends may be surprised to find out how far you can take it...
You may look mild mannered, but it's all an act!


And then theres this one........laugh my ass off....oh I wish this one was true.
You Are Low Rise Jeans

You are both sexy and casual - the type of girl who looks hot without really trying.
You tend to spark imagination, only showing a peek of your skin.

I have to go put my kids to bed.....

It was a windy night as I was getting the boys ready for bed. I heard a *thunk* and I knew it was our recycle bin that went *thunk*. So Mr. Fun and I went out to pick it up and noticed my nieghbors down the street had also went *thunk* and her recycables were blown everywhere. After helping Mr. Fun pick ours up I ran down to tell her. After I helped her we chatted a bit but I then realized I didn't want to miss saying goodnight to the boys. As I was running home I felt a sense of pride. I was happy to say goodbye to adult conversation and replace it with the usual bedtime battles. You know the kind............
"I want some milk(as we ignore this request), JUICE, (still ignoring) can I please have some water" (getting up to get some water).
"MOM, will you please cover me up?"
"MOM, I can't find brownie"
"DAD, can we play xbox in the morning"(because they know mom will say NO!!!!)
"MOM,do I have school tomorrow"
"MOM, I'm hot"
"MOM, I LOVE YOU!"
This gig isn't so bad after all...........

You never know what you will find hiding in this house.

Everyday is an adventure. The other day it was star wars figures and one poor injured army man in the wipe box.
surprise in the wipes
And speaking of army men, you can never have too many.
army men
look close, no bucket of army men is complete without a star wars character in the mix.
Can you name that star wars character?

Something annoying to adults is fascinating for a toddler

Meet my annoyance. Leaking hoses can get on my nerves. Today with camera in hand made it annoying.



Meet his fascination. Leaky hoses are minutes of fun for this toddler. He would touch the water untill his arm was wet from wrist to elbow.


It's the little things they do that keep life in perspective.

I have four kids

OH my hell, I have FOUR kids. Lately I have been freaking out a little bit about the number of children I have. Why now? Not sure. Maybe because they are growing up and becoming their own persons with their one little opinions and their own little attitudes. What are they going to be like as teenagers? I wonder if they are going to be good kids or am I and the principle going to be on a first name basis?
Not sure why now of all times I started to think about this. But I have and I plan to quit as soon as I write it all out.
While in Vegas I noticed a lot of families. I however did not notice a single family of six. Three kids was the max number of children I noticed. So why is that? Is three really that much easier than four? I can see stopping at two, that was my plan. And after three I was also done because I really only wanted two. But some higher power thought four was the magic number for us. So far it's been fun. They keep us busy but it's a good busy. But whats going to happen when I have four kids in activities and two or more need to be at two different places at the same time. I know I shouldn't even be thinking about this and it's so far in the future it's pointless to stress. So I am wiping my hands of this subject. If others can do six plus children, I can do four. Can't I?
And on that note, self doubt is a powerful thing.

That might have been too much fun



The view from our room was amazing. If you ever stay at the Bellagio, a room with a view of the fountians is a must.It was so cool. If you like chinese food then a meal at Chin Chin's inside New York New York is also a must. Then theres the show Buck Wild at the Sahara.If you like Country music you would love this show if you don't then don't bother. I gotta say that I was laughing so hard I had tears rolling down my cheeks and my stomach hurt. We had front row and Mr. Fun had the pleasure of being flirted with. One of the dancers came out and put her hat on his head. He was told to go up on stage but he didn't.
I didn't take many pictures, too busy enjoying myself to think about the camera. But I gotta say if I had had my SLR I would of taken a bunch of pictures. The inside of Bellagio is beautiful. The Tulips were amazing. But the point and shoot camera I had wasn't doing it for me. I discovered that I am a true blue SLR gal now.

We had such a great time. I am already looking foward to our next night away. And next time we do Vegas I want to find a shirt that says "I see drunk people". We saw some really drunk woman being held up by their men, it was too much. I consumed many adult beverages but only enough to keep a good buzz going all night. I can't imagine getting so drunk I coudn't walk, thats insane.
