This is all I want for Christmas. But I want it now. It is not the top of the line steamer vac, its not even a shark! But it will do for what I need. I've been thinking of it for a week now, but with Black Friday coming I made myself wait...and I'm dying! What is wrong with me?! Gone are the days of mani's and pedi's, no expensive perfume or diamonds for this gal! I've been invaded by Martha Stewart!

That was his face when he saw the sweet potatoes, he takes after Mama...

- The minute they enter the room, they start getting passed around from person to person.
- They're incredibly sweet - and consider yourself warned, also can be slightly sticky.
- Eighteen years later, they're often still found just sitting around your house.
- Everyone compliments everybody else's but secretly thinks they made the best one.

I'm reading mommy-blogs today and they all seem to be about hysterical situations that make them the worst parent ever, at least, hysterical to us & worst to them. Now that two of my boys are teenagers I can look back at my own situations and see that everything will be ok with Aidan. What I thought were the most horrible moments in parenting really are hysterical to me now.

I will be so heartbroken. He really is the best cat. People say that, but he has the coolest personality. Who else could rock the lion-cut and be the fearless hunder of spiders like he does?
I think Benny had a good time, its hard to tell sometimes with his hormonal attitude, but he did win at checkers (I really hate that game)... Benny and I danced with Aidan in my arms afterwards and I actually got a real smile out of him, he was really enjoying something. Puberty has been brutal in this house, it was so nice seeing my little boy again tonight.
Aidan has taken to falling asleep on my chest with just a binkie! I really hate having a bottle in his mouth to get him to sleep all the time (especially in the car) and I'm loving the peacefulness of him in my arms. Its too bad that it takes carrying him around the living room for about 10 minutes first, but he's so worth it...

Meanwhile, sitting on the bed next to Daddy Sweet Pea, both laptops, Facebooking, hiding from Aidan who is sleeping in the carseat on top of the changing table...its taken so much to get him to sleep lately we're too afraid to stop him!

I don't want to jinx myself, but I know I will. He is FINALLY asleep. Its 2:30 and Aidan has slept about an hour and a half today. He is so stopped up, I've tried the corn syrup, changed formulas, and finally resorted to suppositories. Couldn't help but wonder while I'm holding it, will it soak thru my fingers???
They are just like me at their age. My mom is in heaven, and for the record, "Mommy, I apologize & now I know why you made the rule that no one was allowed to talk in the morning before school..."
Occasionally I do have an adult thought that requires more than anyone would be interested in reading on Facebook. Hopefully "witty" will make an appearance in my personality now and then. Please comment when it does, it makes me feel good...

Really, I forgot how hard it was to take care of a newborn, I don't know how I did it working full-time the first two times around. I owe a lot to my mom, I've always known that, but now after spending day after day of getting puked and pooped on, going days without showers and nights too tired to get it over with, I really know what its like. But when I was working, I didn't get to enjoy the coos they make when they are fully awake, the way they stare at your face when they're eating, and the feeling that you get when they are crying and instantly calm down when you come into the bedroom when you come and get them. I did experience some of that before, but I didn't realize how you need to relish it, to put your exhaustion aside and memorize every fold on their tubby bodies, because it really does go by so fast. Doesn't anyone mention that?
