Because I love you

Because I love and care about you I am redirecting certain websites to this one. I want you to understand I blocked your favorite websites for your own good. It is so easy to get distracted. Trust me I KNOW.  I am so proud of how hard you work. if you need a break GO OUTSIDE. You can not get a break playing on the computer in your room. Go outside. Go play. The internet is an amazing thing its filled with so much but it can suck you in! Literately. Remember Dr. Who last season? There is so much you can learn from the internet, but there is more you can learn from life. from doing things. I dont want you to end up like so many others I see. I love that you enjoy doing things. Go do them. Dont sit here day dreaming.
I love you angel.

Supernova is a pretty easy going little man unless I do something off routine.  When that happens... watch out  world the baby is PISSED. I forgot a lot of these little toddler quirks until recently. When Supernova wakes up we have milkies in his wockie wockie ( the recliner) Indiana must be in the chair with us. Once we are finished Supernova goes straight to the fridge for yogurt and his puppup (cup). Then we let the dog out and eat our breakfast. Then change clothes and go outside to play if the weather is nice, run errands, or watch storybots (depending on the weather). Yesterday I made the mistake of getting his breakfast ahead of time and setting it out in the den. He would not even walk in to the den. He sat there at the threshold and cried. I had to go and pretend I was getting something out of the fridge before he would come into the room to eat. Toddlers have very little control over thier world and so they cling to what they can. When we stick to certain routines they know whats coming. Milkies, Doggy, breakfast, clothes... they come daily in the same way He knows exactally what to expect. We recently had to go out of town for the weekend and he handled it like a champ! Sleeping was a little iffy but who doesn't have trouble with an unfamiliar bed? We took his favorite toys and he spent a lot of time sticking close to familliar people but he did great. Once we got home though the FIRST thing he did was run into his room and lay his head down on his chair say awww and pet it. His chair was someting secure to him. he KNEW everything was back to normal because he could rock in his chair. We as parents have to change our routines for one reason or another but we have to remember and expect them to be a little upset. When they throw a fit it is not because they are spoiled they just dont know what is coming and they are uncertain. Who doesn't feel that way sometimes?

a really bad day.

My best friend describes a good day as one that no one dies.
Ya'll today was a BAD day.
This morning I was taking some soup over to my brother and sisters house when all of the sudden it spilled.
I have NEVER had my crockpot spill in the car. NEVER.
I pulled over into an empty parking lot across the street from the highway. I called my husband as I cleaned out the car and figgured out a new plan of attack. I got back in my car put the car in reverse when all the sudden I heard squealing breaks. I looked up just in time to see a tow truck hauling a fed ex truck barrel through the intersection sparks flying hit a car. the car was instantly smashed and the truck pushed it about 1/2 a mile. It was the worst thing i've ever seen. I knew the driver was gone. There was no way to have survived. As soon as I heard the impact I called 911. I had the baby with me so I couldn't go check on the driver and there were other witnesses already over there. I scared my husband and my mother with my freaked out calls to them. It was horriable. All day long every time I close my eyes I see that impact. I'm hoping that writing this out will help. About an hour ago the police department here posted the details of the accident with the persons name. He was a beloved deacon at his church.
It's something i can't explain. I just cant get my thoughts about this accident out of my head. I'm fine. I'm okay just disturbed.

growing up.

It seems there has been a lot of growing ups going on in our home lately. Eldest and Supernova have had a lot of "growth explosions".
Eldest is almost finished with 8th grade and looking toward high school and what she wants to do with her life. She is making and tossing decisions life, liberty and HER pursuit of happiness all with the maturity of one far beyond her age. She also had her first dance. We looked up the definitions of semi-formal and planned accordingly UNFORTUNATELY the weather had other ideas but thanks to our neighborhood thrift store we were still able to save the day. She is now in possession of a little black dress. ( her father about had a heart attack when he saw it on the hanger.) She looked beautiful. I was concerned about the amount of girls who would be wearing fancy pageant like dresses and her feeling frumpy. She didn't care, she was beautiful and she knew it PLUS she was excited about how we did her makeup, a fancy up-do and and beautiful dress for 5.00 when her friends spent HUNDREDS. Like I said maturity beyond her years. Sometimes I wonder how we raised a young lady like her. It also gives me hope for the other two girls ;)

Supernova has started signing like mad. A lot of his signs are the same though like chicken, more, and cup. So you know hes telling you he wants SOMETHING your just not sure what. He's also talking more he can say kiki and cook cook which mean pretty much anything that he can eat so we hear that word A LOT. He has learned to help pick up stuff so you never know where something will end up you just know its in a tote.
He helps get himself dressed. He show you what he wants. He has also started doing something else I'm not allowed to mention... hint it involves 8 hours of quiet. It can get crazy around here now.  I love having a toddler around again! I miss this age so much. It is an age of discovery toddlers learn new things EVERYDAY. Today he decided that it was time to go outside to play. NAKED. It was 34 deg outside. Got exposed to a HUGE temper tantrum for not letting him go play. Once he gets outside all he wants to do is walk around. I love it!

He has also learned how to open the girls' bedroom door he knows there is a kitty in there and super cool toys that he's not allowed to have. He loves playing with his doggy. He chases her around the house and trys to pick her up ( not a good idea!) 
best of all we love those doggy kisses! BLECH! 
Life is amazing!

Happy Birthday Little One!

November 8th 2011 Supernova was born.
It doesn't seem like a year.
My baby, my chubby bubby, my Supernova is one.
Such a short time to fall so completely head over heels in love with someone.
To see the grow and develop so many skills.
To see the child he is becoming.

He still isn't walking but he's trying to. Supernova loves to eat almost anything you give him.
He loves his little boy blue and wont nap without his friend. He LOVES to play with his sisters, especially hide and seek and peek a boo. He hates afternoons.. mommy is to busy to play and he can smell food but no one gives him any. He's our precious baby.

11 months... sigh...

Happy 11th month anniversary! You are growing so much! You now have four teeth and a 5th almost in. You can crawl faster the the speed of light.. Or it at least feels that way sometimes! Right now your favorite thing to do is pull down everything you can get your hands on. You want to see EVERYTHING. Your favorite thing to play with is a roll of toilet paper. I know, i know.. it's crazy and I don't know why but it is. You can stand for long periods of time but don't really show an intrest in walking, but that doesn't surprise me since you have three "Grrs" to do your bidding. You decided MA-MA is more than just a sound and you call for me sometimes. We do lots of field trips to the park to play.
 Last week we went to the science center with one of your sisters. You had so much fun climbing in and on things. They had a splash pool area that was just your size and when you saw it had duckies you were sooo happy. You are finally taking ( or letting us give you) baths again. For the last month or so you have been getting baths in the sink because the tub scared you to much.  You eat just about anything you can get your hands on. This weekend you had ribs for the first time. Those ribs were just the right size for carrying around and teething on. You have mastered feeding your "DA" both dropping food out of the high chair for her and feeding her ABC food out of your hands. So right now you are one of her favorite people. You like it when she comes up and licks you. You sleep in your own room now. Which makes mommy remember her little baby is growing up. Soon it will be Halloween, You are dressing up like Rory from Dr. Who. It was " GRRs" choice not mine. Then soon after that your baptism and your FIRST BIRTHDAY!! It's going to be a fun few weeks for you little man! Mommy loves you so much!
