This is the phrase that my 2 year old has been screaming all evening long. And crying. And sitting in time out. Mind you, he's almost 3, so he understands whats going on. He knows that just repeating himself, oh, about a gazillion times, will make the item happen. NOT
Better go calm things down...

Mary Kay Calling

Hello, I'm your new Mary Kay Beauty Consultant. Yes, I've taken the big leap into pyramid sales. Kindof silly for a woman who can earn over $50 an hour just working at her given profession, but this way I can still be at home and work days for that same $50. I am kindof excited to be doing something, though. Also, I have to begin selling many things on ebay over the next few weeks. My hubby has gone a little crazy on the sales racks lately and we have a few extras, to say the least.
My boys are now home for the summer. They are going crazy already staying home. My oldest has started a swim team at 9am M-Th every week. It is not an easy task to get 3 children plus myself out of the house every morning. Its summer, dammit, I should be sleeping! So, I was all syked up about not going this morning. And, my 2 year old woke up for the day at 6am. This is the same child who will not get up before 10am normally.
Right now, my 2 year old is running after the big boys. They kindof play a tag game but its really just stay away from the little guy and make him run around the house. He thinks that there's no one cooler in the world than his big brothers, I wish they would just understand that instead of thinking he's just a pain. Some day, I will wish for the loud screams, I know that. Right now, I can just smile and tell them not to hurt each other too bad. Such is life in our house.

Yesterday, my 2 year old woke up from a short nap with a raging fever. No other symptoms at all. All day, he just wanted to lay on my shoulder and sleep. This is the child that never, never stops mind you. I felt so bad for him & all he could tell me was that his forehead hurt, which could have just been from the fever. Finally, after giving Tylenol at 10pm, he slept a little. He would not eat or drink anything the entire day and that made me worry, I've been in the hospital with him before for dehydration. Then, he woke up at 4am very hot. I have another dose of Tylenol and he finally drank water. Then, he ate some dry cereal. Then graham crackers. Then drank gatorade. Then milk. Never went back to sleep mind you. Now, its 8:20am and he's running around like nothing ever happened. And talking and playing, just like normal. Keep fingers crossed, lets keep it this way!

My Baby's Baptism

My baby was baptized today. Yes, he's my baby. But, he's also 2& 1/2 years old. Which, would not be a problem except there was 6 children getting baptized at the same time today. Yes, six. I would have gladly changed to another day when my pastor was doing the baptizing, but was not told that there were so many. Needless to say, my son, the crazy one of my family as it is, STOLE THE SHOW. So, I felt sorry for the other parents with there little babies, as cute as could be. We were the 1st to get the water on the forehead, and did he scream! and, continue to scream for the entire rest of the service, even though we kept promising bubble gum after the ceremony! Needless to say, the balance of the ceremony was taken up by what my little guy had to say. And, I couldn't be prouder. So what that I waited 2 years. Kiss my ass. My boy even said "Baptism" when the priest asked what we were here for. No other baby even knew what he or she was doing. Mine was just pissed about the water, and kept saying that he hated Fr. ..., no water on his head any more! What I love is that our pastor loves us, since my hubby is always doing work up there for free mind you, but that also we are so involved in our parish. So, he laughed off our little one's outburst, and was quite a sport.
So, welcome to our faith, Little One. May I be worthy enough to pass our Catholicism along to you.
