2.) Superhero knowledge
3.) Stain remover
7.) Cars, trucks, airplanes, trains, boats
11.) Soap...lots and lots of soap
15.) Root beer floats
17.) A huge imagination to keep up with their imagination
18.) Glue, in a it's forms, super, wood, Elmer's, for all things broken
19.) A low gag reflex (boys are gross)
20.) Lots and lots of love, hugs and kisses
That's pretty much it. And if I forgot to mention it before, patience.
Nathan's birthday is in two days. He is going to be 7 years old. Today we picked out an Army soldier birthday cake and finalized birthday party plans. He doesn't know it yet, but we are taking him to a new pizza place here in town. They have indoor go carts, bumper cars, video games galore, bounce house's and of course an endless amount of pizza. Brian and I can't wait to surprise him!

Nathan knows our normal daily routine and has it down. I don't have to tell him to brush his teeth after breakfast or put his coat in the closet when he gets home.
I don't have to tell Brandon to put his underwear on under his pants anymore or not to brush his hair with his toothbrush. They do what they are suppose to do when they are suppose to do it.
Most days anyway.

Then the unimaginable happened. He woke up this morning with the dreaded pinkeye. Oh the horror! His little heart was broken. No school today. No breakfast with Santa and Papaw. No cinnamon rolls. Tears started to stream down his face. Think fast mom, whatcha gonna do?
To fix the tears Papaw and I decided we could take the kids to McDonald's for breakfast and eat inside. They never get to eat inside, that's reserved for special occasions. Like today.
After eating three pancakes, some sausage, half of Papaw's biscuit and a big orange juice, Nathan's tears were all dried up and a huge smiled was plastered across his face, along with some syrup. Nathan declared this was a lot better than eating at school and we decided we need to do this more often. Brandon was a pretty happy camper too. He tagged along, ate three pancakes himself and guzzled an orange juice. He also has pinkeye. I'm sure we all looked pretty special this morning.
Thanks for the great morning Papaw. You helped turn a very bad day into a special treat for the boys and I.

I let the dogs out before their bladders burst then got all fancied up for an interview. Painted my face and put on something other than raggedy jeans and a stained t-shirt. I woke the boys up, got them dressed and packed Nathan's book bag. Brian finally got up to finish the morning off with toaster strudels and o.j. I bounded out the door after many hugs and kisses. I haven't had a ''morning drive to work'' in a very long time. One forgets how frustrating traffic can be when the only place you go in the morning is less than a mile from your home. I arrived to my future place of employment and met my future boss (hopefully), went through a very good interview and walked out of there with a little spring in my step.
Next on my list...field trip. I met up with Nathan's class at the Children's Museum and played for the next four hours. I love watching kids explore and discover. What is better than watching a child's imagination flourish?
After watching the kids load back onto cold yellow school buses, I headed home to my other two guys. Stopped to get us some Korean food, dropped it off at home so Brian could get it ready for the boys, and picked up Nathan from school. After dinner, Nathan, Brandon and I snuggled on the couch for a quick little power nap and then we were refreshed for the rest of the evening to play, read and watch cartoons.
Yesterday was a great day. Plus the kids were on their best behavior all day long! What else could I have asked for?
Wednesday, December 2, 2009
No! I don't want to go to bed.
No! I don't want to eat that.
No! I don't want to listen because I'm tired and hungry.
No. No. No!
My patience has been tested. Tested hard. Tested to the point I left the house as soon as Brian got home, walked around Kroger's for an hour only to return home with a gallon of milk.
Brandon is full throttle into his terrible two's even though he is almost three. And Nathan thinks that he is old enough to do whatever tickles his fancy.
There is light at the end of the tunnel. I haven't seen it yet, but I know it's there. I see the glimmer of compliance in Brandon's eyes every once in awhile. And Nathan figured out the other night that he actually does need me. You know for bedtime stories and root beer floats.

After the introductions were done, the lights went dark and the kids sang Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" while pictures they drew were projected onto a large screen. I'm so thankful the lights were out because I cried so hard. I love that song and hearing little voices sing it tugs at the heart strings. Then they "juggled" scarfs to circus music. Nathan was so serious. And after he caught each one he would look up to see if we were watching. They twirled ribbons to some an Asian themed music which was really pretty. And then, the best was saved for the very last. The kids put on cowboy hats and danced to "Cotton Eye Joe." Oh my goodness, that whole gymnasium erupted into laughter. Those little bodies shimmy shakin' to the music was so hilarious. Hula hoops were brought out to swing around necks and waist. I've never seen Nathan's little hips move so fast in my life. I've never seen any one's hips move that fast, not even hula dancers! They even got to do some free style dancing of their very own. Nathan has been waiting for that all week. He loves to dance so he made up some break dancing/West side Story snapping fingers/river dance routine. Oh my. I can't even describe how funny it was. Brian and I laughed so hard we both had tears streaming down our faces. All my mom could do was say "that's my boy!" And my dad had the hardest time taking picture's because he was laughing so hard he was shaking the camera. After they were finished and the applause died down, Brandon yells out "Yea Bubba!" Nathan had the biggest smile on his face I've ever seen. That was the best night ever!

No balloons or fancy parties. Just cinnamon rolls and handmade cards from the boys.
Brian doesn't like any fuss or attention directed toward him. If he could sleep all day long and not have anyone mention his birthday, that would be just fine.
But the boys could not let that happen. Brandon sang Happy Birthday over and over. Nathan kissed him and told him that he doesn't look old. He received phone calls and cards. His mom made him a great dinner and Kelila flashed her gorgeous smile at him. The guys that he works with even decided to have "man night" tonight in his honor.
Turning 37 isn't so bad, now is it honey? At least you don't look old!

While Brian was in recovery, the boys and I raced back home. I got Nathan ready for school, fed the dogs and let them out, took Nathan to school, then Brandon and I went back to the hospital to welcome Brian back from la-la land.
A day later with a few stitches and pain medicine in hand, we were bringing Brian back home. He's a little slow on his feet and a little cranky (that's pretty normal for him anyway!) but feeling better.
Brian has some of the greatest friends and family on this earth. They called me to make sure the boys and I were ok, the guys he works with sat with him at the hospital when I had to go home to take care of the boys, my parents and our neighbors offered to watch the boys or take Nathan to school for me if needed. I can't tell you how wonderful it feels to know that we have such amazing people in our lives. Thank you all!
Tuesday, September 22, 2009
Nathan is also torn. He hates that it's getting dark earlier outside but is so excited for Halloween. G.I.Joe is all the rage with him right now so of course that is who he wants to dress up as for Halloween. Brandon says he wants to be that too, but Iron Man keeps coming up every now and then. I'm sure he'll change his mind a hundred times before the big night comes around.
We will be making Fall/Halloween decorations this weekend to welcome the change of season. Ghost and skeletons will be lerking around our front yard. Bats and spiders will dare you to ring our doorbell. And a fat pumpkin will be proudly plopped on our front steps saying "two crazy kids, a mummy, mad hatter, and two devil dogs live here. Would you like some candy, my sweet?"

Anyway, when he woke up this morning under his pillow were two crisp dollar bills, two shiny quarters and one rough looking half dollar coin. He promptly put the dollars in his billfold, the quarters in his piggy bank and the half dollar in his treasure box. Boy, oh boy, does that tooth fairy know exactly what my jack-o-lantern looking child loves.

The second time he fell he reached out to catch himself.
A little giggle followed.

I don't even know who won last night but I had a wonderful time just sitting beside my dad in those cold, hard seats saying nothing at all.
Tuesday, August 25, 2009
Some of Brian's family flew in this past weekend and it has been a whirlwind on fun! His brother and niece came in from Connecticut and his dad came in from Minnesota. We ate great food, went to the state fair, ate more food, played games, talked, ate, laughed, and oh, did I mention we ate some really good food!
I love it when family comes over, we always have such a great time.
The boys already miss everyone. They loved waking up and having Grandpa here for big hugs first thing in the morning. The loved having Auna here to play with and Uncle Rick to make them laugh. We also got to see other family members like Uncle Joe, Lauren and Kelila, Harmony, Uncle Eric and Chris. We made new friends with Kim and Gail and their lovely children. Nana and Papaw even made an appearance.
I think the best day was Saturday. We got to go to the state fair in the morning and ride some crazy rides, play games, and some of us ate tons of fair food. Then that evening we had a cookout at our house. The guys made some awesome food. I love it when the guys cook. Mainly because that means I don't have to cook but also because I don't have to cook! I just have to clean up the mess, which is a great trade off.
We are back to our regular normal life now. Brandon woke up asking for everyone today, Nathan didn't want to go to school and Brian didn't want to go to work. My morning coffee wasn't as enjoyable without Brian's dad telling me a story. We were a pretty pitiful site this morning!
Thanks for visiting us everyone, we really had a wonderful time.
PS...Penny, you have until next spring to heal up and join us! We missed you!

Answer: Beat your husband to get the phone out of his hands so you can answer it with pure panic in your voice.
Friday Nathan had a little accident on the playground at recess. He's ok but had a black and blue goose egg on his forehead. Apparently he tripped and went flying into the jungle gym. When I arrived at his school to check him out, he was sitting in the nurse's office holding an ice pack to his forehead. No tears or sniffles for my little trooper. That was until the nurse and I decided that he should go home so we could keep a close eye on him. Then he starts wailing because he wants to stay at school and play with his friends. I felt like such an over protective mom! It's not the first time I've felt like that and I'm sure it isn't going to be the last either.
So after convincing him that we would have fun he reluctantly came home with me. Brian strapped an ice pack to his head and they played a few video games. I made peanut butter surprise cookies, we ordered Korean food and watched a movie and ate popcorn.
Today the goose egg has went down but a large bruise in every shade of nastiness is splattered across his head. Nathan has also decided that he needs to pick up his feet when he runs.
Wednesday, August 12, 2009
Today you get to keep my son all day long. His little hand may reach for yours today because he sometimes gets nervous around new kids and needs a hand to hold. Please hold it as I would.
For his lunch, I packed something nutritious and yummy. I put a little letter in his lunch box to let him know that I'm thinking of him and love him so very much. He may need help reading it. Please help him and read it with love in your heart.
At recess today he'll probably look for his friends from Kindergarten and play cops and robbers. If he falls and scrapes his knee, can you wipe his tears and let him know that everything will be ok.
And, if by chance he gets teased by a classmate, would you beat the snot out of that little brat like I would if I were there.
Thank you and have a wonderful first day of first grade!

All summer long we missed the darn thing. Either she would drive around our neighborhood on cold rainy days when no one wanted ice cream (or mean mommies wouldn't let their kids out) or she would just not come around our neighborhood at all. But now that the kids actually know she exists, summer can now come to an end.
Summer break for Nathan is almost over anyway. He starts first grade in six short days.
I'm not ready for this. He'll be gone all day long. He'll ride the bus home.
Can you hear that?
Shhh...listen very carefully.
That's the sound of panic setting into my heart.
Nathan is excited though. We got him a G.I.Joe back pack and lunch box. New tennis shoes and clothes. He's armed with all the first grade equipment...sharpened pencils, new crayons, fresh markers.
I've got six days to ready myself to let my baby head off into the world of all day school. There's no turning back.

I like consistency so having two little mind changers around puts a little spice in my life. It's fun, sometimes frustrating, and always interesting.
Brandon usually likes bubbles in his bath but a few days ago he decided that bubbles are evil and will eat him alive if he got into a tub full of them. Then last night he screamed bloody murder because there were no bubbles in his bath. Nathan use to like cherry yogurt, but this morning he decided that it's the nastiest flavor ever. I agree, cherry yogurt is pretty gross, but I just bought a bunch of it at the grocery store last night for him. It makes you want to say "What the hell?" But I don't. Brandon would surely repeat my little phrase in his not so little voice while it's really quiet at the doctor's office or something.
Lego's are cool, sidewalk chalk not so much unless it's 3D. GI Joe and Buzz Lightyear are awesome but Barney has been kicked to the curb (thank goodness!).
But that's just this week. Who knows what they'll like tomorrow.

Brian had to work today so we haven't been able to celebrate as we would have liked (and when I say we I mean me). So this weekend my parents are watching the kids (overnight) for us. It will be the first time that both of the kids have spent the night away from us. I'm kind of excited and nervous all at once. Silly, I know! But I'm excited to have Brian all to myself for an entire day and night. No little monkeys hanging on his leg while I try to talk to him, no pitter-patter of little feet running into our room at 3am to snuggle with us, no fights to break up at dinner. That's what I'm excited about. We could stay home and sleep all day for all I care. I just know a quiet evening with Brian is all I want.

Samson helped a whole bunch. He stole the flashlight, nibbled on Brian's legs, climbed over his belly and gave him kisses of encouragement. Big help!

We've seen men swinging from limb to limb in our neighbors trees, pruning it back. Kittens have lived under our shed. We got to watch them play and grow. Now there are two baby bunnies that have taken up residence under there. We've seen fireworks and fire trucks, raccoons and opossums, and crazy squirrels chasing each other around the trees. The fireflies have been lighting up our backyard lately, playing peek-a-boo with the kids. Now you see me, now you don't.
I've let the kids play outside by themselves. It's funny watching them play "unsupervised." They think they are big stuff, running and jumping off of their jungle gym. Chasing each other like little madmen. All the while they both keep sneaking peeks at the back door to see if I'm watching. I am, of course, but I'm hiding. They think they're getting some much deserved independance from mommy but I'm still watching like a hawk. Those two can get into a lot of trouble in no time at all.
All is calm and quiet.
The kids are snuggled in bed, dreaming of new ways to torment each other.
Brian is off enjoying "man night" with his buddies from work.
The dogs are snoring and chasing bunnies in their dreams.
And I'm being serenaded by B.B. King.
Oh, how I love Mr. King and his lovely Lucille.
Let the Good Times Roll, The Thrill is Gone, Rock Me Baby, If I Lost You.
I love these quiet nights.

This weekend is also a great weekend for birthdays. Ryan is turning a year older today. My brusin'-in-law is turning the big 4-0 tomorrow and my good friend Maggie is turning 29 (again) tomorrow too. Happy birthday all, hope you have a great birthday weekend.

This week we have spent pretty much every minute outside. It's been hot, humid and sticky. Perfect for kool-aid and popsicles. The ice cream truck has been teasing us endlessly too. We hear it in the neighborhood behind ours but never see it. That drives the boys nuts! So, I have to break out our own popsicles or ice cream to hold back the tears of frustration. Stupid ice cream truck. How mean is that anyway? Drive through one neighborhood but not any others. Seriously.

I love my dad even though he drove me to school in a hideous baby-poop-brown Pacer that would smoke and backfire. Causing me to never to miss the bus on purpose again.
I love my dad even though he would push me head first into huge snow piles.
I love my dad even though he would tease me until I was so mad all I wanted to do was cry. Then he would make me laugh, which would make me even more mad because I didn't want to laugh...I wanted to cry and be mad.
I love my dad even though he would wake me up by squirting water up my nose with a water gun.
I love my dad.
I love my dad because he would wake me up early so we could drive to the park and watch the sun rise over the trees, then go pick up breakfast for mom.
I love my dad even though we wouldn't catch any fish, we had fun sitting in the boat talking about nothing but saying everything.
I love my dad.
I love that my dad taught me to laugh at myself, to smile at rude people, how to get even and how to tease my kids. I love that he taught me how to be a good listener, a good friend and a great parent.
I love that my dad loves my kids and they love him.
I love my dad. Happy Father's Day, Daddio!

Once we got home I asked the boys if they wanted to play outside. Nathan looked at me like I was crazy "but it's still raining outside." "So" I said "are you afraid of getting wet?" And off we went to slosh in the mud puddles of our backyard.
It was awesome.

- Nana and Papaw let us come down and swim in their pool, fed us yummy food and stuffed our faces with the best desserts ever! (I made the desserts, so of course they were great! Just ask me, I'll tell you!)
- Uncle Rick was in town so we got to hang out with him. The boys fought over who was going to sit next to him, he took them out for ice cream and played baseball in the back yard.
- We also got to see Uncle Eric and he taught the kids how to "pull his finger." Thanks Uncle Eric!
- Harmony (Brian's mom) took us to the Korean store and loaded the kids up with every snack possible.
- We have also been to the playground a few times and spent countless hours in our back yard playing in the sprinkler, sandbox and picking our neighbor's flowers.
- I've taken Nathan to our public library for story time and we've signed up for their summer reading program. So far we have read three books.
That was our week. Now it is raining and we are stuck inside. Brian is off for the next three days and I think we are going to try to take the kids to Uncle Eric's fire station to see the fire trucks, maybe the Children's Museum and possibly bowling. Fun, fun, fun!

He has learned how to solve math problems, read, spell, make new friends and become an independent young man. I've learned to let him do his own thing and that he doesn't need me to hold his hand every second of the day. My lessons were a little harder to comprehend and accept but I've finally let them soak into my thick skull and just go with it.
I'm so proud of Nathan. He is smart, kind and very determined. I couldn't be any happier.
Friday, May 22, 2009
Here's a list of things I have found in Nathan and Brandon's pockets this week.
Rocks... both boys
Baseball card... Nathan
Lady bug (dead)... Brandon
Bar of soap... Brandon
Earth worm (still alive)... Brandon
Leaves... both boys
Dirt... both boys
Gum (chewed)... Brandon
Money ($1.03)... Nathan
Flashlight... both boys
Hot wheel car... Nathan
My cell phone... Brandon
My keys... Brandon
Candy... both boys
Can you guess what stuff belongs to which kid?
Check back tomorrow and I'll let you know...
So, did you get any right?
Wednesday, May 20, 2009
Since Brandon eats like a champ, there was macaroni and cheese behind his ears, in his hair, up his nose and matted in his eyebrows. I don't even know how he does it.
And Nathan plays like it's the last time he'll ever get to play, he had dirt in every nook and cranny.
It's pretty bad that I have to scrub the tub after I bathe my kids.
Monday, May 18, 2009
I was putting up some new hanging flower pots on my front porch when I noticed how shabby my shrubs looked. As I took a closer look at the shrub I thought that it was dying because it was brown right in the middle. But as I leaned even closer I realized that brown stuff had a head and beady little eyes. That when I screamed, jumped, shivered and just about wet myself. Of course Brian isn't home to rescue me so I had to figure something else out. That's when I saw my neighbor. The poor man was just washing his car, minding his own business when I stroll up bug-eyed and asking him if he is afraid of snakes. Thank God he isn't a sissy like me! He chased my unwelcome visitor away and I got to finish my yard work.
I don't like snakes. Nope. Not at all.
Saturday, May 16, 2009
When the boys get sick they still run around like little bunnies bouncing off the walls until every ounce of energy is spent. Only then do they crawl in my lap and beg for me to rub their back or tummies.
When I'm sick, I still have to get up when they get up. Make breakfast, do the dishes, mow the lawn, play outside, blah, blah. I don't get to call in sick. There's no such thing as "sick days" for mommies. Nope. Not in the job description. I checked, twice.
But if Brian gets sick the world must stop. Hold the phone, big daddy needs a tissue. He gets to stay home from work, sleep all day, tell the kids they have to be quiet because daddy doesn't feel good and I get to go get him medicine. Big sissy.

1. Laughing together about the stuff we've done in the past is my absolute favorite thing to do with her
2. She tells me that whatever I bake is the best she's ever had...even if it isn't.
3. My boys are totally in love with her and she with them
4. She'll tell me how great I look, even when I look like a ragamuffin
5. She understands me better than anyone else
Love ya mom!

Both sets of them!
Thursday, April 30, 2009
1. Life is better with kids
2. Love takes on another meaning when you have kids
3. Belly laughs are the best
4. Wet fish lip kisses make me smile
5. Baking with my boys takes twice as long, but is twice the fun
6. Watching kids discover new things makes me feel like a kid again
7. There is no such thing as "quiet time" in my house
8. Grandparents rock
9. Dandelions look fabulous is crystal vases
10. The dishes can wait until tomorrow

After getting everyone laced up in their snazzy neon bowling shoes off we went to launch a 6 pound ball down a slippery lane. Nathan was the first one to figure out why we said "don't go past this line" pointing to the line at the beginning of the lane. He took a few steps past the like and busted his butt. "Wow, that is slippery! You weren't joking!"
All of the kids had their own technique of getting the ball down the lane. One would walk up to the line and gently push the ball. It would slowly roll and barely tap the pins hard enough to fall over. Another one of the girls would toss it like a basketball and it would bounce a time or two. Nathan tried a few different ways and finally decided that if he would stand sideways and throw it he could knock down the same three pins every time. And the other boy in our group would run and scream then launch the ball like a rocket down the lane. I laughed so hard I cried.
We all had such a great time bowling balling the afternoon away.

I'm 31...ouch. See it hurts a little, like taking off a band-aid.
Even though this birthday hurt a tiny bit it was still a good day. I made the most yummy oatmeal cookie pancakes that I slathered in butter and drowned with maple syrup. Brian gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers every shade of pink. The boys sang Happy Birthday all day long which was really cute. I got calls from friends and family wishing me well. And my parents treated me to a steak dinner and strawberry shortcake for dessert.
It took the edge off.
Tomorrow I will be 31 years old plus 1 day. I'm going to wake up early, run off the pancakes, steak and strawberry shortcake, smell my flowers and kiss my kids. Life goes on but I think next year I'm going to turn the clock back and turn 30 again.

We had such a great time in Las Vegas. Nathan loved all of the glitz and glamour that goes with Vegas. He was amazed that you could see everything from flamingos to pyramids in one town. Plus as an added bonus family that he doesn't get to see that often was there. He was one happy little man.
We went out there for Brian's step-brother's wedding. It was so beautiful. Nathan thought that Jen looked like a princess and couldn't wait to give her a hug. And once he got his hug he didn't let go. I think he has a little crush on his new aunt. It was a great wedding and a very fun weekend.
It's nice be home though. It was extremely hard being away from Brandon. I don't think that is going to happen again for quite awhile. I only cried once but I had to call at least three times a day just to hear his voice. My mom and dad had a lot of fun watching him but he wore them out. Once Brandon wakes up he doesn't stop moving until he goes to bed that night! He is a handful to say the least. So even if I did want to get away without him, I don't know if I would have my same babysitters! It may take them a full year to recoup.
Thursday, April 9, 2009
We decided to take Nathan along with us for this trip. All the lights and crazy hotel themes are perfect for him. He is so excited he just can't stand it anymore. Plus this is his first time on an airplane. Double the fun!
Brandon is going to stay back here and hang with Nana and Papaw for the weekend. (Thanks mom and dad!) He doesn't sit still for more than 3 minutes at a time so a 4 hour plane ride is out of the question. I've never left Brandon with anyone for more than a few hours before so this is going to be interesting. I know he'll be just fine, Nana and Papaw's house is like Vegas in it's own right to him. I'm the one who is going to have the problem. My stomach has been doing flip-flops this past week just thinking about it.
We get back on Sunday and I'll let you know how everything went.
Have a wonderful Easter!
Friday, April 3, 2009
This morning my kitchen floor looked like rainbow confetti, even though I swept up the mess last night. I enlisted Brandon to help me pick up the little pieces, which turned out to be a bad idea. Brandon decided to make little play dough balls and stick them in his ears.
Play dough balls in the ears.
Call the doctor.
After the nurse stopped giggling, she told me to come in. So off to the doctors office we went.
Turns out the play dough fell out before we got there so all is well. I'm going to put the play dough up for awhile though.
Wednesday, April 1, 2009
Anyway...April. This month is packed with excitement for us. We have birthday cards to send out, Easter eggs to color, flowers to smell, a Vegas trip to pack for and wrap up Nathan's Spring Break.
So much fun, so little time!
Monday, March 30, 2009
Brandon has been so tired today. I thought he was just tired from a busy weekend at Nana and Papaw's (thanks for a great weekend mom and dad!) and staying up late with Brian but I believe the little man is getting sick. After taking a 3 hour nap this afternoon I woke him up so we could go out to eat with Uncle Joe, Lauren and Kelila but he had rosy cheeks and a hot heat. His fever was hitting around 101.5. So, he and I will be staying in tonight while Brian and Nathan enjoy Korean food at Mama's House. Brian has strict orders to bring me back some Bebeem Bop though.
