This One Goes Out to Uncle Beau

I was telling Hudson for the upmteenth time to go potty, to which he usually says with a little attitude, "OK!" This time, he threw a curve ball and responded while saluting, "Yes sir (sah)" This kid is a complete crack up and I have NO idea where he learned this one.

Kids DO say the darndest things.

I am not very good at writing in the kids baby books, so if I at least have their funny sayings and doings online, at least there is documentation somewhere!

A few of my favs from Hudson lately:

"Wha you dooming?"
"Where you goming?"

A few of my favs from Avea who seems to have many tomboy signs:

The constant growling noises she makes and most recently, the car noises she makes when playing with Hudson's cars.

The way she screams "Maaaaaa" through the whole house whether she be summoning me or my Mom.

The way she growls "Haaa" for things she knows are hot.


So my intent for this blog was to boast about how blessed and lucky I am to have the life I do and especially the amazing kids I do. As I write I must remind myself of that. Since this new year hit many small obstacles have presented themselves. Ones that really force me to look at the person I am, but lately the bumps in my road have been bills. Yeah, what an exciting topic for anyone crazy enough to read this. It seems all of the bills thought January was the perfect time to present themselves. HOA fees, dentist bills, and almost 300 in a gas bill! I have no idea what we did to incur this amazing little gift, but it is easily 6 times the amount of our normal bill. Simply--I do not have the money to pay all of these bills right now. Even as I blab and vent now, I must catch myself. I am blessed. I am blessed much more than probably many people that live right here in my town. I have never gone hungry. I have never not had shelter. I have never not had power...well except the first night we moved into our first house we bought, but anyway! God is providing! We are blessed with 3 jobs and we do have income. Things will work out. This entry may just be therapy for me as I deal with the stress of being "grown up." I must remind myself that to most of the world, I am extremely wealthy and my complaining is nothing compared to the trials that many people face.
