Let's just say it was a rough night. Camden was up most of the night, just because. He talked, sang, played and yelled for us. I have no idea what his issue was or why he chose to stay up all night. All I know is I am TIRED and no amount of coffee is going to make up for the 5 or so hours of sleep I missed.

JERGEN'S Natural Glow Self Tanner
JERGENS Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer Fair Skin Tones (7.5 oz) Used once Pictures, Images and Photos
This stuff is great! It leaves your skin so soft and smooth. It is not an orangey tint and is simple to apply. I have only used a 3 times and I have just a touch of color. LOVE IT!

PANDORA bracelets and beads

Take Me Out to the Ballgame...(or not)

Baseball season.

It is quickly approaching and with it comes a few things that irritate me. So I have compiled a little list of things that bother me about this lovely season...

*** My husband is spending an ENTIRE Saturday in Boston today, for his Fantasy Baseball Draft. He left at 10 am and will return by midnight. I do not understand this fantasy baseball crap. AT ALL.

*** The television is no longer available to me in the evenings. We now get the MLB network, thanks DIRECT TV. We are lucky enough to also have Picture in we can watch NESN and MLB at the same damn time!

*** Men's Over 30 Baseball husband is managing the team this year. So not only does he have games twice a week, plus EVERY.SINGLE.SATURDAY. through the summer, but he is also a pitcher, which means he is always complaining about his shoulder. ugh!

GO RED SOX! (kinda)

The one good thing is I can see this lovely face more often!

The "Binkie" Situation

Camden still has a "binkie"(pacifier)when he sleeps. He is supposed to keep the binkies in his crib until bedtime or naptime. MOST of the time we make sure he follows this rule, if he is sick he can have it if he is laying down and resting. I have made a few attempts at trying to break him of the habit, but honestly haven't put too much effort into it. Maybe it is because he is my baby, maybe it is because he just loves the thing so much or maybe it is because I want to be able to sleep at night. In any case, my goal is to get rid of it in the next few months. But right now I feel like I am doing what is right for him.

Cue... my mother. I love my mom to death, she is my best friend and we get along very well. We rarely have disagreements about things. The binkie is our one little issue. She works for a dentist, she says his teeth are going to be ruined. I say the teeth are fine, I even asked our pediatric dentist, she didn't seemed worried. But EVERY time we are at my moms for naptime she makes a comment about Cam being too big for his binkie. I ignore it as much as I can, but Lee gets angry about it. I tell him to brush it off, that we are doing what we want to do and she is not going to change our minds. But I guess I need to tell my mom to back off...but in a nice, loving way.
RRRRRrrrr...I have being confrontational! Esp. with my mom.

About 2 weeks ago I convinced my mother to read:

I promised her she would not be disappointed. I told her to give it a chance. I agreed with her when she said it was written for younger readers. So she gave it a shot.

This morning she called me and told me she was coming to pick up this:New Moon Pictures, Images and Photos

Tomorrow I am going out to buy this:

Pretzels anyone?

Normally when I grocery shop, I go by myself. It it just so much easier to not have a preschooler and toddler with you when you are trying to accomplish...anything. But I have been lazy the last few days since Lee has been off from work and we have been focusing on doing fun family things. This morning was back to work for him and back to reality for the rest of us. So we brought Hannah to preschool and then headed to the grocery store. Camden LOVES Stop and Shop, I really don't know why. He literally squealed with joy when we pulled in to the parking lot. He was SO good in the store but I ended up buying things I had never intended on buying...

1. A Thomas the Train Ball
2. Trix Yogurt...I always buy the Yo-Baby, healthy stuff
3. Pretzels...Lee, Hannah and I don't like them, I hope Camden is planning to eat pretzels for snack for the next,,,oh-month! It's a giant bag!

I know it is my own fault, I should not give in to him. I just REALLY wanted to avoid a grocery store meltdown. I needed to get some groceries and did't have time to leave the store if he had a good ole 2 year-old, kicking and screaming fit.

You of these...

Please take a minute...

Please say a prayer tonight for the L & S familes. A 28 year old mother has lost her 2 year battle with cancer. She leaves behind her husband and 2 year old daughter. Her brother has been a friend of mine since we were in grade school, the poor guy also lost his mother this year to cancer complications.

Sometimes life just doesn't make sense.

Who Am I Kidding?

I think I have Spring/Summer Fever. (I am only kidding myself though.)

I went to the mall today. I spent way too much money. But my children now each have an entire Spring/Summer wardrobe. You name it, I bought it. Tank tops, t-shirts, shorts, skirts, sundresses, bathing suits, hats,sandals, sunglasses and towels. I left the mall feeling great, like summer was near, like I had accomplished something. Then I got home...and realized that we still have TONS of snow and a LONG way to go before summer-BOO!!!

A Girl and her Doll

We brought Hannah to the American Girl Doll store in Natick yesterday. She got her "Julie" Doll for Christmas and I have really been excited to bring her down to the store. So we made the 1 and 1/2 hour trek, it was WELL worth it to see her little face when we were there. She got her dolls ears peirced and picked out a new outfit. She took her time picking out the right outfit, we walked around with boxes in our hands deciding which one she wanted for about an hour.

SHOWING OFF JULIES EARRINGS(even thought you can't see them!)



CHEESE! (blurry,sorry)

It was a fun day, and it was nice to have a special day, just for Hannah. She is growing up too quickly. Kindergarten is approaching way too fast...tear.

Who needs appliances?

laundry Pictures, Images and Photos

I am always complaining about laundry. It is my least favorite chore around the house, I would rather clean the bathroom! So it is no surprise that I was talking under my breath this morning, irritated with the amount of laundry we accumulate.
Hannah decided to chime in:

Hannah "What does the washing machine actually do?"

Mommy "It cleans our clothes. It fills with water and soapy bubbles and swishes the clothes all around to clean them" (Nice 4 yr.old level explanation.)

Hannah "Oh, I know there is an easier way to wash clothes."

Mommy "You do? Please tell me!"

Hannah "Mommy- just wash them in the sink with the dishes."

Summer...where are you?

a little blush and a pair of heels

This morning Hannah was hanging out in the bathroom with me while I got ready for the day. I threw my hair up into a clip and put on (very minimal) makeup. She likes to have blush and I pretend to put mascara on her, it is our normal routine. Next she went into my bedroom and put on a pair of black heels and headed for the mirror.

Then I heard this(from my 4 year old)...
"I look SOOOOO pretty! Do you think I'll be able to find a husband now?"

Oh Hannah, you make me laugh sometimes!

Not Me Monday!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I DID NOT vacuum my living room 3 times today. That would be ridiculous. And it WAS NOT because I let the kids eat crackers AND goldfish in the living room. I WAS NOT too lazy to sit in the dining room with them while they had their snack.

I DID NOT let Lee get up with the kids today so I could lay in bed for an extra hour. I DID NOT thoroughly enjoy my one hour of peace and quiet.

I DID NOT secretly start looking in the Help Wanted section of the newspaper this week. I AM NOT secretly missing being a preschool teacher and wondering if I will ever go back.

Last night, I DID NOT go into Camden's room, take him out of his crib and bring him into my bed with me while Lee was at hockey. I WAS NOT feeling sad that he is getting so big I did not want to hug him and just watch him sleep.
