The other boys

I finally found out Christian starts his Pre-K next Thursday. He is very excited. I like having kids that actually still look forward to school!

As for Kaelen, I really dont know about his first day. He is currently living with his mother. Who, believe it or not, lives 1/2 a mile from us. If I tell the soap operatic story here, I will say things that are ugly, so I wont tell the story. Its like a bad nightmare.

So, hopefully, Kaelen will get to school dressed and fed..or actually, hopefully he will just get to school.....:-)

Here is a pic of my ever loyal dog Hector....

Schools in!

There was a time long ago, and I mean long ago, where I had it together. I could remember anything and everything, I never paid a bill late, I didnt lose everything and I was early to places.
I am none of thise things anymore. I remeber nothing, I bill most bills late, I lose everything and I live in an altered reality where I think it takes less time to get places than it actually does.
Today my baby started the third grade. Really? Good just isnt possible.
And my baby, didnt want me to walk him to his classroom (not that I had much choice being I got him to the school as the bell was ringing).
Here are the pics he would let me take of him.

I got this one before he realized what I was doing and smiled instinctively.

No, he isnt crying, this was me trying to make him smile
This was him getting tired of me trying to make him smile.
Here is my new do, or some of it....
Whacked it off and got bangs, which I regretted 5 minutes after I did it, which happens every time I get them when forget how much I hate them.
I like it over all, the bangs are really annoying me...

A Breather?

The last 2 weeks have been RIDiCULUS with work. This is what happens when they fire everyone and everyone else leaves for greener pastures. Good grief... It appears I have a small moment to actually take a breath....

I am getting very excited for summer to be over with. I much prefer having a schedule with the kids, I could have a schedule with them during the summer, but that requires too much effort on my, yeah, I will do it when I only HAVE to. LOL.....

Haden won the Air Hockey Tournament at his daycare yesterday, he got a little medal. I am so proud of him, especially because he is so competitive! I have to take him down a notch or 2 when we play Wii or Board Games...he seems to feel he should be able to Bowl a 300 in real bowling because he can on Wii...and he thinks he can throw 98 mph b/c he can on Wii baseball...I love him being competitive...I think it will make him work harder for things he wants in all aspects of life....unfortunately, I think many kids his age will not be competitive..why should they when they get trophies for just participating and schools dont expect more of them..anyway, dont want to get on that rant....

Christian's teeth are still in his head, seems they tightened up pretty good at his last checkup, just a wait and see, I dont want to pull them unless necessary..and they should be coming out on their own by Kindergarten

Good news, I will be able to go back to my regular in home sitter in a few weeks, thank goodness, we have missed her so much. Daycare just isnt my forte.....

I have no pics to post, because that would require picking up a camera....

So please enjoy the ridiculusly old pics of me and others in high school....I remember thinking the higher I could get the poof on my head the better....LOL
