January 2016 - little & big

2016 the year to start documenting the little and big things that happen in this crazy bunk house.
I vow to document each month, more for mine and Matt's purpose so we can really remember these crazy little kids quirks and mannerisms.

We started January out with this little beauty sliced into Champ's foot, that was super enjoyable.  
The key to getting Champ to calm down is to get him thinking of another topic.  So while i was rubbing his leg and matt was fishing around in his foot to get that glass out, I was reminded of a time I was babysitting my cousins and one of them cut their finger.  My Aunt Diane came home and was so proud of me and how I handled taking care of one of her girls.  
Champ immediately calmed down and clung to my every word and didn't even realize that Dr. Bunk had tweezers and pulled this little sucker out of his foot.

Sometime in mid January Maddy and I decided to become lip syncing queens

The perk of having a hard working husband is I get to stay home with my children.  Which also means I get to spend extra valuable time with my Nana and my kids Great-Nana.  I would trade everything in this world for my kids to have more time with their Great-Nana.  I love the way they all love her, and I love the way she loves them.  I also love that we get lots of lunch dates, and mornings with coffee together. 

 We celebrated the Queen turning 4.  She had a lovely little getotgether with her family at Paisanos.  However all she really wanted was for her 2 best friends Jakey & Tom-Tom to be at her party.  This little girl is very very loved

 On her actual birthday we celebrated with 
cinnamon rolls, lunch with daddy cakes, and dinner at Red Robin.  

Every week this little one fights me,  she hates going to the Dr. every week with me.  Although as soon we get there she is my own personal entertainment.  Everyone loves her at my Dr office.  All the other patients think she is so cute, I have even had patients spouses take her to get treats.  I like to think she is like a mini candy striper coming into the infusion center with her little smile and bouncy personality, making everyone smile and laugh.

When the parents are in pre-service prayer we practice making pyramids, until someones back goes out.  I love this crazy bunch of kids, and sure do love doing life with their mothers.  I love the way they all get along and love just hanging around doing planks, hopping races, burpees, and building pyramids with each other and their siblings.

If you have made it this far through the post congratulations, you have almost made it to the end

Things our crazy kids say

Wisdom with Champ

  • Mom, I read my bible and prayed all night and all I got was Hosanna  
  • Mom, who was the guy that cut down his dad's cherry tree?  Back Obama?  
  • Do you know Martin Luther King day means that this guy with dark skin had a dream and it came true so now Max and I can walk to the bathroom together at school. 

There is either a snow storm or the kids will get sick the week that Matt has a long trip planned it has happened for the last 4 four years consecutively, it happened on 1/18 Champ was laying at the foot of my bed with a puke bowl and Viv next to me with hers.  As we were getting ready for school the next morning Maddy said "I like when Champ comes to school with me, that way we can just blame always being late on him, and no one is waiting on me."  She definitely knows her brother.

Today was rough

Today I had a bad day.  I felt bad for myself, and had a pity party all day.  Things didn't go as planned at a doctor appointment and I let it get the best of me and beat me down.  

It wasn't until close to 6 tonight that I snapped out of it and realized how blessed I truly am.  

I had these 3 little crazies making me laugh uncontrollably in the car, and I stopped and realized I let a whole day go by without appreciating what I had around me. 

I'm laying in bed right now with my 6 year old son.  I remember a time when I couldn't get this guy to stop crying and clinging to me, and people would say the one day you will miss that.  I know the days are numbered, the time is coming when he will no longer want to sleep with me and cuddle up in my arms when Dad is out of town, but man alive the love this kid has me, even when I am crabby and not doing a great job, means I must be doing something right, or it could just be God's grace reminding me that it will all be ok and tomorrow his mercies are new.

Palm Coast day 2

The sun does not stop these children from the ocean.  It has been in hiding the past 2 days now, but it hasn't stopped us.  I love how much they love the ocean.  I love how champ has no fear of the waves.

Palm Coast Day 1

Do not bother mom when we get to the beach, champ if you get stung by a stingray see me and I will determine if we need to bother mom with it. 

I need to get more sand in my butt tomorrow.

I got a scar from the ocean, that is so gnarly.

Easter 2015

the tooth

Around 18 months old christopher fell and chipped his tooth, we have had a couple of problems with that tooth ever since.  He lost teeth earlier than normal and got small absests on his gums, and this tooth even started turning a very dark gray.  
This past week I took him into get it checked out only to find that his big tooth was trying to come through and if that small tooth didn't come out the big one would come in all crooked.  So the dentist decided to pull it out, this tooth was a little touchy to get out, all the roots were still in tact, it wasn't coming out for a long time.  
Christopher was such a champ, he didn't shed a tear and was pretty numb for most of the day!  
He still hasn't put it under his pillow because he really wants to put it on a string and wear it as a necklace, I think he got that weirdness from his father!

Little one there will come a time in your life when purple isn't your favorite color.  The day that comes I may shed a small tear to not hear you say "my favorite color is purple."  Im not quite sure you even know what the other colors even are.  All we know is you request your purple minnie cup, you will only color in purple and when you draw you will only use purple.  
Today you asked me to help you paint a picture for your big sister, and by help you basically told me to paint the whole picture purple.  I love you
