The Not So Cute...

I am sick. Not terribly sick, but enough that I decided to take a nap when the boys did today. When will I learn NOT to do that. Apparently they decided to take the mattress off Mark's bed (queen size) and remove the headboard from behind the bed. When I asked them why they told me they were making a new bed. I did not notice this until dinner time and at that point it was better that they eat and go to bed. Cranky mommy and naughty boys do not mix! They were arguing all afternoon anyway so I think a little extra sleep will be a good thing!

Now it's just Ben and me since Kevin is still at work. Ahhhh the joy of silence!!

Weight Watchers

So in an effort to lose the extra pounds on my body I started weight watchers online last week. I followed it perfectly (hope I keep that up) and lost 4.5 pounds! I am so excited! Now I just have 38.5 to go...

If anything will motivate me it will be going to the beach all the time. Nothing to make you feel bad about your body like putting on a swimsuit!


I have to brag on my hubby a little today. Friday night he was up late and fed the baby so I could sleep through it. So nice! I made a comment about how nice it was and how I really need one night a week to sleep through a feeding or to sleep in the next morning and he got up Saturday night too. I am thrilled! I hate not breastfeeding Ben anymore but it is nice that I can get a night off every now and then.

He really is such a great guy! I felt very lucky this weekend.

The weekend

Well, first of all we are past the diarrhea!! YAY

Saturday we went to the beach and played. It was so fun. Ben stayed in his carrier under the beach umbrella and I just relaxed in the sun. Kevin played in the water with the boys and they had a blast.

Sunday we stayed home and cleaned. Which should not be worthy of noting except that Mark as usual is hilarious.

"Mommy, cleaning is boooring." (Ok, I thought this started way later but my kids are allll about complaining about boredom.)

"well buddy we have to clean or else our house will be nasty. You don't want to have a nasty house do you?"

Then he comes out with "But mommy, we could just MOVE."

Hmmm that sounds like a lot more work than cleaning. We are messy people, we'd have to move about once a week. I'd rather clean! :)

Spoke to Soon

Without being disgusting, I spoke too soon and looks like the diarrhea is not over. 4 diapers already today. bleck!

Ben Smiled!!

He smiled at meeee!! I was just talking to him and bam. He made my whole day! I love him!!!

He's Eating!!!

Good morning!! Zack ate his cereal this morning. AND a half piece of toast. AND now he's eating goldfish. Oh, and a few bites of an apple... Whew. After three days of not eating I am so relieved. No diarrhea so far today (knocking on wood BIG time!) and this makes me so completely happy! Laaaa deeee daaa! *that's the sound of a happy momma!*

Zack & Ben

I 've written about Eric & Mark tonight so I feel like I should about the little ones too. Fun times in Zack world. Some tummy bug has hit him fairly hard. He threw up all night Monday night & we are on day 3 of diarrhea... Yea, really fun for Mommy too. I changed 10 (at least) nasty diapers today... But he's cute & worth the trouble... hehe

Ben is just a baby so there isn't much to say yet. I wish he'd smile but he loves to cuddle and I love that! He is fun.

Kevin is almost home so I'm out for tonight! :)

Stuff Up the Nose

Why do boys put things in their nose? Really, why? If you know feel free to enlighten me. Today I'm doing something (who knows what really) and Mark comes up to me. "Mommy, I have something in my nose." Sooo I look and sure enough there is a popcorn kernel up there. I have to fight back a laugh but ask him why on earth he put a popcorn kernel up his nose. His answer provoked more stifled laughter... "So I could stop sniffing." Perfect. So, I go into crisis mode. How do I remove said object out of his nostril without shoving it up further. Tried having him blow... nothing, tried the lovely blue booger sucker... still nothing. Chased him around the house for a good five minutes trying to convince him to let me try to get it out with tweezers all while he's yelling. "I'll DO IT MYSELF!" Uh huh. That would work. So I dial up the pediatrician and he yells "NO DOCTOR MOMMY!" So I told him he had to sit still so I could get it out. Got him settled on the couch and pushed his nose up toward his face and still can't get the damn kernel. So I kept pushing the nose and had him blow. And tada out it flies and all is well. Then I had a talk with both Eric and Mark about not putting stuff in their noses OR their ears (just so they can't say I didn't tell them.)

I wish that was the last of the stuff up the nose drama for the day, but sadly it is not. About a month ago Eric told me he had a sticker in his nose. He had been playing with one of the stickers the moving company put on everything when we moved to FL. Neither Kevin nor I could SEE anything so we had him blow his nose. My logical assumption was either it was a tiny piece & it would come out. OR that he was wrong and didn't really put it up his nose. In any case I decided to watch him & if he seemed overly stuffy or anything I'd take him to the pediatrician. SO, skip ahead to now and Kevin is working late tonight so I decided to slack & run through McD's drive thru for dinner. On the way home he sneezes and says "MOM, I sneezed a sticker out of my nose." You have to be kidding me!! I completely forgot about that sticker. I told him to hold onto it because I wanted to see how big a piece he put up there. We get home & it truly was a whole sticker. Maybe an inch by a half inch (I didn't measure it...I'm just guessing) Holy crap I felt like a bad mom. He's no worse for the wear I guess.

Again, I ask you WHY do they stick stuff in their noses? I still have to go through this with Zack & Ben... but they won't do this, right? Right????? :)


Eric just came up to me and told me he felt beans in his bottom.. Um, WHAT?? So then I realized he was touching his um, balls... Guess he'd never noticed that before. EEK. Always when Kevin isn't home. I told him they weren't beans, just part of his body and to go put his jammies on. This is why I need to blog. So I don't forget these random, hilarious things that really shouldn't be forgotten.

Where to begin?

I guess with today. I've been saying forever I need to get writing about the boys and the little things they do that are so cute (and some not so much) and I keep putting it off. So why not start now?

I hope I can keep it up. I am the worlds worst journal keeper. I do great for a week and then it's bye bye journal. I don't have time to do this either, but I will try to make time. It's important so I can remember days like today.
