Not Me Monday

Still don't have a lot of Not Me Monday's but at least I try!! And I can totally relate to Mckmama about the oven fiasco! When I was in college I was over at my grandparents with my roommate and we decided to make a pizza and I turned on my grandparents brand new oven to preheat it but unbeknownst to me my grandma keep her plastic plug in skillet in there. Who does that!!!! So anyways we went on our merry way waiting for the oven to heat up when all the sudden there is black smoke coming from the oven and my aunts husband they lived right next door in a duplex came flying in with a fire extinguisher and rambo style put the fire out. That was a pretty scary moment and I felt terrible for ruining their brand new oven but again who leaves plastic stuff in an oven. Well apparently my Grandma!!!

As for Not Me's this week here goes
I did not remind my husband that we had money in our account and that I like flowers and white cake just so he wouldn't forget to get stuff for me on my birthday. He did last year and was in big trouble but he totally redeemed himself this year so all is well!!

I also did not get upset when our plans fell thru on Saturday night and our neighbors couldn't babysit I mean their kid got really sick that would be yucky and selfish of me to wish they could have watched my kids!!

My husband and I did not drive around after having dinner on Saturday night trying to find something to do and we did not go home after only 2 hours out so we didn't have to waste more $ on a babysitter I mean we are hip and wanted to stay out all night!!!

I also did not pretty much go straight to bed when we got home because I just wanted to !!

I did not put my kids in fuzzy pjs because it was cold my northern friends would just laugh and laugh!!

Okay that is all I can think of for this week. Happy Monday!!

A Great Birthday!!!

Yesterday was my birthday and I had a great day. It was very low key but that is ok with me. I was woken up by my sweet boy and his little voice saying Happy Birthday Mommy!! I just love love love that boy!! Then later in the morning we went to Sam's Club cause hey you still have to be a wife and mommy even on your birthday and we were out of chicken so had to go get the big bag at Sam's Club. Well of course we can't go to Sam's Club without getting our standard hot dog combo or pizza combo. So we got our lunch there and my hubby came on over since his work is very close by and we enjoyed a birthday pizza hot dog lunch as penned by the boy!!! Then later in the day I had to go pick up our neighbors daughter at her daycare since her brother became pretty sick and had to go to the ER. So she ended up being at our house for the evening which of course made Cortlyn super happy. He loves Alyssa and always says she is his girlfriend. How cute!! So anyways Cortie, Catherine and Daddy had gone to the store to pick up some bday supplies. And when they got home they had a super secret cake baking mission in the kitchen. It was so cute watching them make the cake although I wasn't supposed to know what was going on!! They made me a beautiful cake with pink icing and blue sprinkles. Very delish and so special!!! So we celebrated my birthday, added another kid in the mix for the evening and all around had a nice night. Chester and I are going to go out tomorrow night sans the kids to celebrate both our anniversary and my birthday so that will be nice.

Cortlyn is a Big Boy Now!!

It seems like just yesterday that my boy was a baby!! I waited so long for him to arrive that when he got here, I was so excited and just loved being able to be with him all the time. He was a momma's boy and we did everything together. But now he is getting to be such a big boy and I am having a hard time letting go of my sweet baby boy!! But alas the time has come and this past week he has really stepped up the big boy and is now going on the potty and wearing big boy underpants almost all the time and keeping them dry!!! Last week a light just went on in his head and he went #2 on the potty which is what we had been trying to get him to do with no avail and he just went in said I have to go poopy and away we went!! He was so excited and we danced around and celebrated!! So now we are on to the next big boy adventure which is putting up his big boy bed. I don't know why I am having such a hard time with this I want him to get bigger but he won't be my sweet little baby anymore tucked in sweetly in his crib. I wonder if it a struggle with all moms with their first born. With Catherine I am much more ok with her milestones as was able to leave her way earlier than I ever did her brother. I mean I did not leave him for an overnight till he was near 2 years old and I cried and cried at the airport when I left him with daddy for a weekend. But I have since left him since then and have been fine. So I have a big boy in my house now. And although I miss my little baby I am looking forward to him growing up to be a godly man, warrior and friend. That is what he prays with daddy every night. I love you Cortlyn George Thompson!!!!
