I shall call him Ali!!!

I could not be more proud of my oldest son!!  If you read my post about The Bully (and if you haven't you should) you will know that my oldest son isn't the type to fight(unless it's his brother of course lol).  He's a bit  Honestly, not too sure why he won't stand up for himself, or his brother for that matter, other than he wants everyone to be his friend.  Anyway, I'm straying off topic a bit here.  

Let me paint the scene for you.  There are..lemme count....7 kids...pretty sure it was 7...we'll say more kids than I can claim, out in the yard, some of them were on the porch and some of them were in the yard in front of the porch.  They had this purple ball that they were playing a game with, some kind of dodgeballish game.  Everything was going great, they were all getting along no one was whining or crying over anything.  It was kind of like the twilight zone lol.  Well no sooner did I realize that they were all getting along did all hell break loose(doesn't it always ha!).  One of the neighborhood kids, we shall call him R, threw the ball at my youngest son, not because he was playing the game, just to throw it at him and see if he could hit him, well this caught him off guard and he kind of stumbled and fell over a bike and got hurt.  His brother went over and helped him up(this totally shocked me) and helped him in the house(another shock).  My son was fine, just a bruise on his knee.  He shook it off and went back outside but decided to sit on the porch and color instead of play with the other kids because R hadn't apologized to him and he was being stubborn waiting on him to say sorry(he gets that from me lol).  Anyway, all was fine and the kids went back to playing and about 15 minutes later my oldest comes storming in the door pissed off and shoe less(ya, that part confused me too).  My first question was who peed in your cheerios?  He started talking, well ranting, and from what I understood he got in a fight with R because R had hurt his brother and didn't say sorry for it.  UM....huh?  Not that I am not uber proud of him, but at this point I was a bit confused at this point ya know.  So I told him to go find his shoes and calm down a little and then come back and explain to me what happened, as soon as he walked out the door I lost it.  I know it sounds horrible of me, but I could not stop laughing.  Not sure what made me laugh harder, the fact that he actually took his shoes off to fight this kid or the look on his face when he was trying to tell me what happened.  Either way I was laughing so hard I was crying lol.  So anyway, he finds his shoes and comes in and starts explaining, a little more calmly, that he was mad that R had hurt his brother and not said he was sorry so he took it upon himself to "teach him a lesson" and when he told R this they took it out to the yard, he took his shoes off and he said he told R "take your best shot" so R pushed him and he fell.  "That's when I got really mad and I started hitting him in the head"  One of the neighborhood kids brothers, who is about 14, saw what was going on and tried to break it up and my son ended up accidentally hit him, while he was trying to break it up R ran home.  OH MY GAWD!!!!!!!  So while he is telling us all of this KV (another kid that was over here playing) yells in the door that R and his mom are here and she wants to talk to me.  Well, this is going to be a problem because I am still laughing uncontrollably at this point.  I took a minute to compose myself and I walked out the door and she goes "well, what happened?  I only got one side of the story and I want to know the other side."  I had told my son to stay in the house because, one, he was still mad, two, he was scared he was going to get in trouble and had started crying at this point and three, I couldn't promise that I wasn't going to get ugly because I had dealt with this woman before and, well, to put it nicely shes a raging cunt and I can't stand to look at her let alone talk to her.  Anyway, I explained to her what had happened based off of what I had been told and she made R say he was sorry to my son for hurting him and showed me the marks on his face from my little boxer hitting him in the head ears and face.  I still can't believe it to be honest with you.  I am sooooo proud of him...ya'll have no idea how huge this is for him.  He has always lacked confidence and this helped him out alot.  Hopefully today proved to him that if h is doing what is right when it comes to things like this he won't get in trouble and next time he has a problem with The Bully he will stand up to him.  

Well, I'm outta here, I have kids to put to bed and I am having some wicked contractions at the moment.  As always comments are always welcome and please share/follow my page <3

And in more stupid news....yes folks this is another rant ;)

Here is a link to the article I am talking about in case you want to check it out

Yet another 6 year old has been arrested for assaulting their principal.  What's worse is this same child had already been suspended for assaulting a teacher not too long before this incident happened.  Let me start by saying, obviously this child has some temper issues. I also want to point out that there isn't any mention in the article of him having behavioral issues so that probably isn't the case.  With that being said, I can only think that since this boy had been suspended for assaulting a teacher before he was arrested, there was very little, if any punishment for his actions when it happened the first time.  I find it absolutely ridiculous that kids as young as 6 are having to be arrested because they are so out of control.  It's like parents have kids, don't teach them how to act properly then send them to school and expect the school system to do something with them.  Um hello!!!  It takes YEARS to teach a child how to behave and not act like a spoiled brat, and it takes even longer to unteach these bad habits and instill new ones in them.  Parents need to be responsible for their children's actions period!  If your child is a brat then at the very least talk to them about it.  I doubt that you will get any results from simply talking to them, but hey at least you can say you attempted to do something about it.  There is a list of things you can do to make them understand that what they are doing is wrong.  Time out, spanking, taking away their favorite toy, going to bed early, talk to them, stand them in a corner, wash out their mouth with soap....ANYTHING!!  If you read my post from yesterday you can see that my kids are no saints, but they do respect their elders, they NEVER get in trouble at school for disrespecting ANYONE.  They also know that if they don't they will be punished when they get home.  I will not tolerate my kids acting that way.

Now onto the ranting part of this post lol.  DISCIPLINE YOUR DAMN KIDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I can not stand to see a kid acting like a brat and the parents just ignoring it.  It seriously makes me want to step in and do something about it.  Even with kids with behavioral issues, and yes I have one so I can say this, need to have some kind of consequences for their actions.  How else are they going to learn that what they are doing is wrong?  I'm not saying beat your kids, or even spank them for every little thing.  Do I believe in spanking?  Yes, absolutely!  Does that mean I am saying to spank your child with a belt(or anything other than your hand) or that I do?  Hell no!  What I am saying is that kids need to learn that if they misbehave they will have consequences for what they have done.  For example:  my oldest got into a bad habit of lying about EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING.  He was doing it for 2 reasons, the first being to get out of trouble.  We are all guilty of this and even as adults still do it from time to time, its human nature.  The second reason he was lying was to see how much he could get away with, exactly how far he could push his limits.  The first few times I caught him lying I talked to him about it and explained to him why it was wrong and that he would get in less trouble if he would just tell the truth, but he decided to keep doing it.  When he was caught lying the next few times he was made to stand in the corner on his toes, one minute for each year he has been alive, at the time that was 7 minutes.  Still he made the decision to keep telling lies, so I made him write I will not lie 20 times every time he got caught.  He HATES to write, so it helped a bit, but he kept doing it.  One day I told him if you lie again I am going to wash your mouth out with soap.  He didn't believe me and later that day he lied about something else.  I marched him to the bathroom and took the bar of soap and swiped it across his tongue twice and made him sit there for MAYBE a minute before I let him rinse his mouth out.  Guess what, he stopped lying after that.  Sometimes those old school punishments that our grandparents used on our parents, and our parents used on us actually work.  I have also spanked my kids for various reasons.  Like when my younger son decided to run away from me at while we were at the store after being warned several times that it was dangerous and the various reasons why it's dangerous.  I swatted him on the butt two times.  Did it hurt him?  No.  It did, however get his attention and snap him back into reality enough to listen to me when I told him not to run off.  He hasn't run off since.  I have also made my kids do push ups as a form of punishment.  It didn't hurt them, they hated it and as an added bonus it was physically healthy for them to do it.  I still use that when they have decided to really mess up.  What's sad is, I could probably get into a bunch of trouble for doing these things.  I could have my kids taken away from me for trying to teach them right from wrong through punishment but the people that allow their kids to do whatever they want are perfectly safe, the "parents" of kids who are beaten and not fed and live in horrible conditions get to keep their kids because people want to turn a blind eye to it all.  Society is seriously fucked up when it comes to how we are and are not allowed to raise our children.  I know at this point I am rambling, I have been for awhile now lol.  I just don't understand it.  I don't get why things are the way they are and why parents dont or won't do anything about it.

Well, I'm outta here for now.  As always comments are always welcome and please share/follow my page :)

My kids lost their brains today...

It's been day around here today.  As you read in my last post (and if you haven't read it yet shame on you! lol) we had the issue with The Bully, and now we have a few incidents of them (and when I say them I usually mean my younger son) being brainless.

Since my last update my oldest came running in the house and turned around and showed me his butt.  No he wasn't outside running around naked lol, though now that I think about it I do have a funny story about that for another day lol.  Anyway, he comes in to show me that he has a HUGE hole in his under ware.  WTF?!  How in the hell did you rip your under ware and please turn around when you are talking to me I am not talking to your butt!  He starts telling me some elaborate story about how he was running and got caught on something and it ripped his underpants.  Ummmm.....wrong.  Try telling me the truth, I may not be the smartest person on Earth but I do have a brain and I know you are lying to me.  After some protesting that he was, in fact, telling me the truth I threatened him with soap in the mouth and low and behold the truth came out!  Apparently The Bully gave him a wedgie.  Now, I have give my fair share of wedgies to people in my day and I know how hard you have to pull someones under ware to rip them.  I don't know how he was walking right!  When I asked him why he didn't just tell me the truth about what happened he told me it was because he didn't want to get The Bully in trouble.  Now, if this were any other kid this statement would shock me, BUT I know my son and I know that he is one of those people that wants EVERYONE to like him.  Which is why he won't stand up to The Bully, and why he didn't want to tell me what really happened.  It breaks my heart that hes that way but I really have no idea what to do about it.  Anyway, while he was sitting here and I was talking to him about it my mom all of the sudden screamed for my other son.  Scared the shit out of me!  When he came in the house my mom asked him what the hell he thought he was doing.  I'm still oblivious to what the hell was going on because it took him all of like 5 seconds to get in the house when he was called since he KNEW he was in trouble.  Come to find out he decided to chase a moving car and try to grab the bumper of it.  WTF?!  Where the hell is your effin brain kid?  Do you know how dangerous that is?  Well, apparently not because this isn't the first time he has done this.  Oi vey!  After talking to him about it I let them both go back outside to play BUT they had to stay within my sight, which isn't very far.  A little while later The Bully comes back over and they are all outside playing in the court, no biggie, I can see them.  Well, I look out the door to see my younger son drinking out of a freakin' mud puddle in the middle of the street!  Now, let me tell you, this morning when I got home I got out of the car to see my boys making a mud/grass/rock/DOG SHIT pie.  I made them dump it out, which they did in the middle of the street, right in the puddle that my son was drinking out of!!! *GAG*  this is the 2nd time in the past few hours i have had to ask him where the hell his brain was at today.  Of course my smart ass child responds to me with, I left it at dad's house.  UGH!!  I made him come in the house and brush his teeth and all that but he actually swallowed some of the water so I am hoping it doesn't make him sick :/.  Another incident of WTF today was when the boys(of course), were sitting on this big wooden box out front of the neighbors house pushing each other off of it.  UM....why?  What in the hell makes you think this is a good idea?  Are you so bored that you have to resort to trying to hurt each other?  Well of course as soon as I think this my oldest pushed his brother off of the box and he starts screaming.  My first thought is, great, his first broken bone.  Thankfully he wasn't hurt so much as shocked at the fact that he fell on his head.  Before I get flamed for not taking him to the DR over it, he was fine.  No bump, no blood, just a little pain.  He came in and I looked him over and he ran back outside with no ice or anything.  At the moment they are all outside playing.  I'm sure before the night is over there will be another WTF moment.  Today has been full of them lol.

Side note, my daughter is out there playing and The Bully made her mad so she decided to start pinching him.  Now I don't condone this type of behavior, but it s good to know that she won't take shit off of people no matter how big or mean they are.

Well, it's 7:30 and I have kids to bathe and beds to get them in.  Wish me luck, it's going to be a pain in the ass to get them in the house lol.  As always, comments are welcome and please share my page with your friends.  Be sure to follow me!

The Bully *dun dun dun*

We all knew one growing up.  Hell some of us may know a one as adults.  These kinds of people like to prey on the weak and small.  They get joy from making someone else's life miserable.  They are known as bullies.  Pains in the ass and the worst kind of people.  Well, we happen to have one who lives across the street part time.  He's 9 and hes a BIG boy.  He know how to throw his weight around and he knows how to make the rest of the kids around here do what he wants.  He threatens them, or he pushes them or hits them or calls them names.  They play with him because he's the older kid in the neighborhood, he has the cool toys(when he's allowed to bring them out that is), he has all the best ideas *rolls eyes* and they play with him out of fear.  If they don't want to play with him he gets mad and then he starts to throw his weight and mouth around and then they get hurt.  This is one of those kids that, even as a parent and an adult, I would like to trip when no one is looking.  If i were a kid I would beat him up just to show him that there are people out there that can put him in his place no matter how big or mean he is.  But since I am an adult i would NEVER lay a hand, or foot, on him.    That doesn't mean that I won't give my kids permission to stand up to him though.  And this is where today's story starts.

My kids were outside playing with the 2 neighborhood boys that they always do.  All of them are between 6 and 8 years old and for the most part they get along great!  Along comes The Bully.  Things were going great until then.  They were running around having fun playing hide and seek, yes folks kids so still know what that game is, well, The Bully couldn't run for more than 10 feet without getting out of breath, unless of course it was after the ice cream man(and before anyone flames me for that I have SEEN this happen with this kid so I am simply stating the truth on this).  Anyway, he convinces them to play some other game and then all hell breaks loose.  My younger son runs home crying because The Bully(who, no lie, weighs almost as much as I do NOW and I'm hugely pregnant) punched him in the heart and made him fall and hit his back on the porch railing.  I checked him over and made sure he was OK and I marched him over to where they were all playing an asked exactly what happened.  I got the same story from all but one kid.  Betcha can't guess which one told a different story lol.  After I was told what happened from all of them I looked at my boys, and The Bully, and told them that if The Bully can't keep his hands to himself and wants to hit and push then they have my permission to hit, kick, push, or whatever else they needed to do, back to him.  But not to stop until he was crying and running home to his mommy.  I told them that there is no reason to take shit off of this kid just because he's bigger than they are.  I left them to play after making myself clear about this to ALL of them.  Not 10 minutes later my oldest comes running up to the door yelling that his brother was being mean to The Bully.  I yelled out the door for him to come home and made my oldest stay here so I could find out what was going on.  Once I get him in the house I asked what happened and he proudly announced that he punched The Bully in the back of the head.  I asked him why and was informed that it was because The Bully pushed his older brother down and he wasn't going to let him get hurt so he stood up for him.  First, I couldn't be more proud of him for that, second, this kid has balls of steel!  He took up for his brother because it was the right thing to do.  His brother told on him because he didn't want to get in trouble!  *Sigh*  what the hell dude?  Why didn't you help him and hit The Bully too?  Why is it your younger brother has to take up for you?  Why would you think you would be in trouble after I TOLD you to stand up to this kid?  I just don't get it.  It's whatever though.  His brother proved his point when he punched him in the head because it's been over an hour and so far there hasn't been another problem with The Bully picking on anyone.  Maybe this has the problem solved?  Doubtful, but I can hope can't I?

Well, I'm out of here.  I'm super hungry and need to find something to eat....again lol.  As always comments are always welcome and please share my page with your friends :)  You can also follow my blog, which would be super awesome of you to do :)

another trip to the hospital...

I'm going to make this one as short as possible so I don't bore you with all the details of waiting around n a hospital.  I was having some contractions and BAD lower back pain yesterday and by the time I got the kids in bed I was in tears so I decided I needed to go be checked out.  I must admit I was praying that I was in labor because I am seriously over this pregnancy lol.   got to the hospital and checked in, which takes forever, got into the room and hooked up the the monitors and wouldn't you know it the damn contractions decided to stop being regular(ish) and wouldn't pick up on the damn monitor!  Back pain didn't go away and the nurse said it sounded like back labor but without contractions registering they couldn't/wouldn't keep me.  The she told me that the baby's heart rate wasn't looking as good as they wanted it because there were no accelerations or decelerations in it just a normal rate of 122 and only fluctuated a little.  She gave me ice water(yum) and ginger ale(gag) to drink to get his heart rate where they want it to be.  It took awhile but he finally did what they wanted him to do and they sent me on my way.  I'm still dealing with some pretty wicked back pain and random contractions but other than that all is well.  He's got his head on my bladder and his feet in my ribs and seems to be quite content staying right where he is for now.  I will say that come the 14th if hes not here yet I am going to reach in there and pull him out myself! lol

Please Stay Tuned for a Public Service Announcement....

Things that should NEVER be done/seen in public.

We all know, at least most of, the 10 Commandments. I have taken it upon myself to add a few more. These are all fairly easy to follow and understand so here goes.

Commandment 11- Thou shalt not go out in public in pajama pants...its not only lazy but it looks horrible....this especially applies to anyone that wants to wear pajama pants with stains, holes or falling off your ass...spare the rest of us and just put in something presentable...

Commandment 12- Thou shalt control your brats in public...I don't care how unruly they are at home but when you are out in public please for the love of all things holy keep them under control

Commandment 13- Thou shalt not talk like an LOL cat all the time...once in awhile is fine and it can even be funny/cute...but talking like that all the time makes you sound stupid...and we all know you aren't stupid

Commandment 14- Thou shalt not wear pants that are so tight your fat hangs over the top...the rest of us find it disturbing and fear for our lives if the button pops off...there is no shame in buying pants that actually FIT you...

Commandment 15- Thou shalt not poke your ass out when walking  in attempt to make ur it look look like a duck...or like you need to take a shit...its not cute and while i find it highly amusing i feel you should know how stupid you look

Commandment 16- Thou shalt take your socks off before sex...if you can take off the rest of ur clothes you can take the extra 10 seconds and take your socks off too...its just weird

Commandment 17- thou shalt shave your pits (women)....there should not be 3in of hair under ur arm...especially when u are wearing a's gross...if u want to have man pits fine...just don't make the rest of us look at it

Commandment 18- if u are too scared to drive the gas guzzling monster u call a truck...park it!

Commandment 19- thou shalt not walk outside in your's disturbing...

Commandment number 20 thou shalt not wear a bikini if you have cottage cheese belly and enough stretch marks to make a road one thinks its cute...I'm pretty sure I just saw some small children run in fear and someone just gouged out their eyes...please save me the trouble of having to use brain bleach and cover up your belly...

Commandment 21- Thou shalt wear your teeth in public. I totally understand having to get dentures. BUT that does not mean that I want to see you without them in. It's creepy looking and frankly, kind of gross. Please put them in your head while in public, not only do we not want to see it, but you should have a little self respect and WANT to wear them. You did spend A LOT of money on them didn't you?

I'm sure there will be more of these as it gets warmer and I go out more....I'll comment on my posts to let you know when I have updated this one so you don't miss it lol.

In today's effed up news....

Here is the link to the story I will be ranting about today

I have my homepage set to yahoo just to read crap like this.  Sad but true lol.  So if you have read the story, and I hope you have by now, I would love to hear opinions on it.  I am going to start by saying that I think its fuckin' stupid.  Yes kids get hurt, some of them get hurt more than others, when I was a kid it was called an accident, if you got hurt often you were accident prone.  Simple as that.  I got my head busted open on the playground at school when I was like 4 because I wasn't looking where I was going and I ran into a concrete tunnel they had for us to crawl through.  Did my parents sue the school?  Hell no!  Did the school get rid of the tunnel?  Hell no!  Would some of today's parents sued or demanded that the tunnel be removed?  Fuck yes!  People I am going to let you in on a little secret....are you ready?  KIDS GET HURT!!  It's all part of growing up!  If you hover over them all the time warning them of every little POSSIBLE danger then they will never have the confidence to try anything new.  Everything we do has some kind of dangerous aspect to it.  I understand wanting your kids to be safe, we all do, but this shit is ridiculous!  When I was a kid we had metal slides that you could cook eggs on in the summer that we would slide down and at the end of that slide there wasn't any mulch to make the stop softer, we hit hard ass dirt and in most parks there were rocks stuck in that dirt.  We had see-saws and we would get on them with our friends and hang 'em in the air till they either jumped off or we got tired of sitting there!  We got on the swings and went as high as we could just to jump off and see how far we got.  We hung upside down from the monkey bars and *gasp* even walked across the top  of them.  We had those spinnie things that we would get on and spin as fast as we could just to see who could hold on the longest before getting launched off of it, if you were the last one on you won!  Guess what folks, we survived!  Part of the fun of childhood is pushing the limits.  Seeing what you can do and how good you can become at it.  Sure we had a cuts, bruises and skint knees, hell even a broken bone or 2, but at the end of the day we had fun and that's all that mattered.  We can look back on our childhoods and smile and know we didn't waste our time being scared of what we couldn't do or what might hurt us.  We climbed trees and played hide and seek after dark and all those other games and things of the past.  We are making our kids soft by not letting them be KIDS!  It's their job to worry us to death doing stupid shit, it's their job to get dirty and scraped up, its their job to push the limits of gravity.  That's what kids do!  I rode down the damn slide in my parents laps a thousand times when I was little.  Guess what, I never broke a bone doing it.  I climbed up the slide the wrong way and caught the feet of another kid in the face a few times.  Sure it hurt, and yes I bled, but you know what.  I wiped the blood away and kept on playing.  You may as well wrap the kids of today in bubble wrap before you send them out the door if you want to keep them semi safe from getting hurt.  And while we are on the subject of today's kids, this s another things that irritates me to no end, sports.  I put my oldest in tee-ball a few years ago and he loved it.  I hated it.  Apparently, kids aren't supposed to win or lose anymore!  Seriously?!  They aren't all winners.  In a game someone has to win and someone has to lose, simple as that.  We are setting our kids up for huge punches in the face when reality strikes.  If you let them keep score and tell them if they win or lose its going to do one of a few things.  The first is going to be if they win they feel a sense of accomplishment.  That's not a bad thing people!  If they lose they will either try harder to win next time OR they will realize that whatever it is they were doing, isn't their thing and they will move on to find something that they are good at.  Again, this isn't a bad thing.  It will teach them that we are not all equal in everything, that in life there are going to be people that are better than them at some things and that they will be better at some things than other people.  Stop setting them up for failure!  Stop pretending that life is so easy because when they get older and they finally realize that things aren't fair it's going to fuck them up big time.  *Sigh* where did society go wrong?  When did parents become such pussies?  Where the hell are all my fellow 25+yr olds that grew up with confidence and a back bone?  Do you not look back on your childhood and smile at all the stupid shit you did?  Do you not remember what it was like to be a kid?  Don't you want the same for your kids?  Come on people make a change!  Raise your kids like you were raised so they can look back and smile.  At this rate kids are going to look back and wonder what they hell they did as a kid, when did they have fun?

Well my loves, I am outta here.  As always comments are always welcome and please share my page with your friends :)

Well, the band aid came off with minimal pain thank god!  I'm walking like I rode a horse for about a week without stopping and as long as I don't get too brave it doesn't hurt too bad.

Today is one of my "I hate anyone who isn't pregnant and miserable" days.  Not too unusual at this point in pregnancy for most women.  So I have decided to give you all a list of all the things that come with pregnancy that no one tells you about.  Hell, if someone would have told me about these things before I got pregnant with my oldest I would have NEVER had kids!

The beginning stages...
Morning sickness-  Some women don't get it at all, I never did, other women get it so bad they lose weight.  It can be triggered by ANYTHING.  But this is a common pregnancy thing that ya'll all knew about so there isn't much shock there right.

Constipation-  Yes you read that right.  It wont be long after your little belly bean starts to put just enough pressure on your bowels and nothing is going to get through there without some pain and suffering.

Diarrhea-  Then there are those of us that get the opposite end of the bowel issues and end up shitting like a wounded goose every time you eat something.  Good luck ladies, ya'll are going to end up with roids sooner than the rest of us.  Sorry.

Bloating-  Yes bloating, we all know its a cute little baby bump, but lets face it you don't see it as quite so cute since you feel like you are just REALLY bloated.  For those of you with constipation, don't be fooled, part of that is the mile long turd you have backed up in your intestines.  Enjoy that mental picture haha.

Sore Boobs-  Your tits are most likely going to ache and throb for a few weeks, if not longer.  Get used to it momma this pain will make another appearance later and I promise you will wish for the pain you are feeling now.  I didn't even want to wear a bra for a few weeks because the material rubbing them hurt so damn bad.

Smell-  You will smell EVERYTHING!  Your sense of smell will be so heightened that you will be able to tell people what they ate for dinner a week ago from their breath.  That stinky man in line behind you at the grocery store...ya, go ahead and puke on his shoes and tell him its all his fault.  This is, I believe, one of God's cruel jokes.  Give a woman who has an already sensitive stomach super smelling powers.  Haha thanks Big Man it's totally appreciated.  This super power won't go away until after baby is born so you may as well get used to it and figure out what your triggers are now.

The Middle Stages

Welcome to the 2nd trimester ladies!  Feeling those little nudges and kicks yet?  Awww they are sooo cute aren't they?!  For now....

More constipation!-  You read that right!  For those of you that didn't have it in the first trimester, get ready to experience it.  You won't shit right again until after your little bundle of joy arrives, and don't get me started on the post delivery poop.  At this point there is quite a bit of pressure on your shit shoot and its going to make it hard to poop.  I recommend a high fiber intake lots of water and prayer.

Hemorrhoids- These stinky little butt balloons usually start to show up in most women during the second trimester.  Don't worry, they will eventually go away.  They hurt like hell and make you want to cry every time you wipe your ass.  Tip for dealing with them, invest in lots of those flushable wipes and some Preparation H(side not, Preparation H is also works really well for those annoying crows feet, dab a little on at night before bed once or so a week to keep them from getting worse).

Heartburn-  This is about the time some women start to experience heartburn.  It will make you want to rip your throat out just to get some relief.  Sadly it will only get worse as baby gets bigger.  Get some mints ladies!  I swear by them.  The only reason I have survived this long is by chewing tic tacs constantly.  The red and white mints work great too but for that instant relief chew up a tic tac or 2 and then pop a mint or some mint gum.  Added bonus to this is, its not a medication so you don't have to worry about getting a prescription for from your Dr or spending tons of money on the chalky crap that you can get OTC.

Weight Gain- If you haven't had to buy bigger clothes by now you may want to go ahead and invest in some.  This is the time when you go to bed one night looking all cute with a tiny little baby bump and wake up with a basketball under your shirt.  By this trimester most Dr's want you to have gained about 10 extra pounds but since most of you wont have been able to eat much in the first trimester you are going to be stuffing your faces with everything you can get your hands on.  Translation, prepare to gain about 20lbs rapidly.

Constant Hunger-  You will stay hungry for most of this trimester.  Eat till your hearts content, just remember you are going to want to lose that weight after baby comes, well some of you will anyway, I personally don't care one way or the other.

Stretch Marks-  It's going to look like a tiger clawed your belly soon.  Get over it, no matter what kind of lotions and oils you use you are most likely still going to get them.  Yes they get lighter over time but they never go away on their own and there's nothing you can do about it.  Stop being vein and shut up with the complaining.  I have a road map of the earth on my belly after 4 pregnancies lol.

Add most of the stuff from the 1st trimester to these new problems and you have the perfect pregnancy!

The Final Stages!
 Congrats ladies you have made it to the last few months of pregnancy!  Feels great doesn't it?!  Haha who am I kidding.  Miserable yet?  Don't worry if you aren't you will be soon.

All of those symptoms listed already are going to continue for the most part....there are a few exceptions but not many.

Kicking-  Those sweet little nudges and kicks are now more like karate moves and sometimes they hurt.  Not so cute now that you are being kicked in the bladder when you REALLY have to pee.  Or when you get kicked in the lung/ribs and it takes your breath away.

Peeing- Take this advice ladies, map out every bathroom to every store between where you live and the places that you go on a regular basis.  You will get in the car and have to pee at some point and when you have a 5lb baby sitting on your bladder there is no time to waste.

Discharge-  By now you will definitely have an increased amount of discharge.  So much so that you may want to start wearing pads to keep your panties dry.  For some of you it may have a stronger odor, some of you may walk around feeling like you have peed on yourself because there is so much of it.  It's normal unless it's an odd color or very strong smelling so don't worry.

Incontinence-  You may or may not be able to hold it as long as you used to.  This is, for the most part, normal.  A badly timed sneeze or cough, or even laughing too much, can make you pee on yourself.  Get doing those kegles ladies they really help with this problem, and they help when it comes time to push that 7lb baby out too!

Nausea-  Some of you may see a return on that first trimester feeling.  Some of you may even start a new round of "morning sickness".  This isn't quite the same though.  This wonderful feeling is because all of your guts, including your stomach, are crammed up into your chest and there isn't much room to get food in there without it wanting to come back up.  Add that to the, now 2 mile long, turd in your bowels and its a boat load of fun.

I'm going to stop here because I don't want to completely horrify you.  That and my kids are home and  have to get homework done with them.  Stay tuned for my next "chapter" about what can happen as your body gets ready to give birth and giving birth.  If you aren't pregnant you may never want to have a baby after reading some of this shit hahaha.

Well...that was an adventure...

For those of you that don't know, I am currently 37 weeks pregnant.  This means that I am about the size of a baby whale and move at the pace of a snail.  In my very pregnant and uncomfortable state I have been neglecting to shave as much as I used to because its a pain in the ass and I have no man to impress.  Well, with my due date getting closer and it starting to be warmer around here I decided to shave tonight.  I don't want to go into labor looking like my lady bits ate a fur ball and barfed it back up ya know.  Let me tell you...shaving ANY part of your body below your waits at this stage of pregnancy SUCKS!!!!  I am about to get a bit personal for those of you that don't care to know, for the rest of you, enjoy a laugh at my expense :)

First I will say that my legs are horribly swollen tonight, so this may not have been the best night to attempt this because anything that puts pressure on my legs causes them to kind of dent in, so I am attempting to shave my fat legs with dips in them...NOT SMART.  I grab my razor and soap up my scrubby and as soon as I leaned over to soap up my leg my son decides to kick me HARD in the ribs.  He doesn't like to have his space invaded at all.  The kick took my breath away it hurt so bad!  I took a deep breath and held it and leaned over again...I almost reached the bottom of my leg before he kicked me again, but I wasn't going to let him make me sit back up again...ssssttttttrrrrrrrreeeeeeeettttttccccccchhhhhhhh.....YAY!  I reached the bottom of my leg!!  I figure since I am already this far I'll go ahead and soap the other one so I repositioned myself a little and soaped the other leg.  Phew...I'm already out of breath and baby is NOT happy so he's protesting by kicking and punching me in my ribs and bladder.  Step 2...shave...*sigh* this is gonna take awhile.  I grab my razor and take yet another deep breath and rrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaccccccccccchhhhhhhhhh....I did it again!  I reached the bottom of my leg!  Hot damn maybe this wont be so hard after all!  Hahahahahahahaha wishful thinking.  I got like 2 strips of y leg done before my lack of oxygen started to get to me and I had to sit up again.  I repeat this process several more times until I FINALLY finished my first leg.  I go to do the second one only to realize, I need to soap it again because the first one took so long to do its dry and we all know you don't dry shave unless you want razor burn.  I grab my scrubby again and start the process over.  By this point my leg has been leaning on the side of the tub for so long I have a decent sized indention in it now.  This should be fun...not only am I about to pass out trying to do this but now I have a huge crater to shave too.  Oh well, gotta get it done.  I start to shave the other leg and all is going well until my little protester decides to cunt punt me from the inside.  Little brat kicked my in the cervix!  I swear I thought I was going it reach down there and feel a leg hanging out!  Don't worry, he's still in there, I checked for limbs hanging out before I continued with my shaving adventure.  OK, back to the task of getting myself shaved.  I get my leg done other than the the hell am I going to do this without it hurting or cutting myself?  HA!  I got it....I'll move onto my lady parts and when I'm done with that I'll shave the dented spot, it should be better by the time I'm done...right?  Now for the hard part...figuring out how to shave my wooha without slicing it open.  I got it!  I'll prop my leg up on the wall and just feel around!  *Shakes head* bad bad bad bad bad idea.  But it's really my only option since I don't have a mirror I can use and seeing what I am doing is out of the question since I have a beachball in my gut.  I get my razor and I start to slowly shave the easy biggie, I got this....its going great!  Naturally my arm is draped over my belly and as I go to start shaving some of the harder to reach areas I get my arm kicked so hard it made my arm move just a little and *slice* HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!!!!  It's like a paper cut on my vagina!!  I want ice, a band aid, an epidural....something to make it stop hurting!  This shit is worse than when I cut my finger open with scissors, and that needed stitches!  *DEEP BREATH* It's OK, I can do this, I have to finish now that I have started.  My hand is kind of shaking at this point.  I really don't want to cut myself again.  OK, lets do this...I can do reach back down there to my now throbbing lady bits and get back to work.  I never knew how effin hard it was to shave when you can't see what you are doing!  How the fuck do blind people do this?!  OH shit!  Back spasm!  *slip* OH MY GOD I THINK I JUST CUT OFF MY LIP!!!  Why did I think this was a good idea?!  What the hell is wrong with me?!  At this point I am only about half way done from what I can feel...and ya know what? I could care less!  There is no way in hell I am going anywhere near that area again with a razor till i can see what I am doing!!! have a Dr appt Thursday, I can't leave it like this my Dr will think I'm nuts...I have to finish...I have to...*deep breath* I can do this...I can finish this without cutting myself again...I've been doing this for years.  So I go back to work on mutilating myself.  Almost close to being least I think I am...*slice* WHAT THE FUCK?! HOW THE HELL DID THAT HAPPEN!?!?!?!?! There goes the other lip!  No need to worry about it being hairy down there anymore, I've cut the damn thing off!  At this point I can see blood in the water...that is never a good sign when it has to do with that area...EVER!  My lady parts feel like they are on fire from the cuts...but I have to push on...I have to finish...just a little more and I'm done...*deep breath* HA!!!! I'm done! finish my leg.  I reach down to shave the last little bit of my leg only to find that it is still dented in.  Know what, fuck it.  Its supposed to be cold enough for pants tomorrow.  I am sooooo not even going to attempt that one after I have sliced my lady bits all to hell already.  So I get out of the tub and dry off and decide to inspect my poor lady bits in the mirror....I want to see the damage and how good of a job I did.  HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!  My wooha has little patches of hair that I missed and its still bleeding.  What is my brainiac idea?  Put a band aid on it!  So I am now sitting here with a band aid on my worst cut and dreading having to pull it off.....on the plus side...I at least got one leg shaved!

Another trip to the dentist...

My oldest had to go get his fillings today.  He got here this morning and was told that he had to go(I hadn't told him when his appointment was because hes a bit of a spaz and would have worried himself to death about it).  He spent the ENTIRE morning stressing his appointment and asking all kinds of questions, some of which he asked more than once because he didn't like the answer he got or wanted to see if he was being told the truth, or whatever other reason he could come up with lol.  His appointment was at 9 THANK GOD!  I don't think he could have lasted much longer than that.  Thankfully when we got there he only had to wait about 10mins before they took him back.  I walked back with him and they had me sign some papers and asked me if I wanted him to have the gas to help relax him.  I gave him the option on getting it or not and to my surprise he said he didn't want it!  Come to find out he didn't want it because he didn't know exactly what it was.  Fine by me!  I didn't really want him to have it anyway since I know my mom has an allergy to anesthetic and I can't tolerate Novocaine very well.  It put my mind at ease when he said he didn't want it.  So they took him back, and wouldn't allow me to go with him :(.  I sat down in the waiting room and half expected to either hear him scream when they gave him the shot or for them to come out and tell me they can't do his fillings because he was freaking out.  But to my surprise he did great!  Super proud of him!  He doesn't have to go back for another 6 months!  Even though he was finished with his appointment by 10:15 and had no pain I let him stay home from school today.  Homework tomorrow should be lads of fun *rolls eyes*  all his make up work plus 2 days of homework all in one afternoon oh joy!

Other than his trip to the dentist today has been pretty mellow.  No fighting between the injuries, though they haven't been outside to play yet today, no melt downs.  The only "problem" is my oldest(he has ADHD and is unmedicated) is sooooo full of energy he's driving me INSANE!  I totally understand that he can't help it and all that but holy fuck hes loud as hell today and would up wanting to bounce around and jump and all that IN THE HOUSE and for some reason he won't go outside to play.  I guess it's because none of the other kids around here are out yet?  And while we are on the subject of things that are driving me nuts, if I hear the words fart, poop, butt, booger, pee, or anything else related to those things again I'm going to lose it.  I don't know what their obsession is with those words but I find them vulgar and disgusting and I'm about to start washing mouths out with soap or go back to making them sit on the toilet for a few minutes when they use those words.  That seemed to work pretty well when they first started with the "potty" talk.  I would make them go to sit on the toilet for a few minutes and tell them if they want to talk like potty mouths then they can sit on the potty.  They aren't fond of having to sit still so it stopped them from doing it for awhile.  We all kind of slacked off on doing it and now they want to say those words constantly.  *sigh*

Well I'm outta here for now.  As always comments are always welcome and please share this with your friends.

Nothing major has been going on the past few days and I have been kinda busy so I haven't had a chance to post.

The boys got their report cards this week.  Super proud mommy!  My oldest got his first ever O and it was in history of all subjects!  My middle monster is on a D reading level which is past where he needs to be to go to 1st grade next year and he has brought it up from a B level last nine weeks!  My little princess got green at school both days and was oddly well behaved all week, not sure if her attitude has changed or if shes up to something lol.

It's hotter than hell today and in my preggo state I am not a happy person today.  Even with the windows open I feel like I am going to burst into flames any second. I'm sweating like a whore in church!  It seriously sucks but theres nothing I can do about it.

Went and looked at baby stuff this morning and I think I FINALLY found the outfit I want to bring this little soccer player home in.  I just need to get past spending $25 on an outfit he will only wear one time lol.  Other than that I looked around and priced some of the stuff I need to get still.  Holy shit  forgot how expensive babies are!!!

An update on the Ashton Fisher kid that wasn't going to be allowed to walk at his graduation:  The school board saw the petition of over 100,000 signatures and decided to let him walk!  Way to go Ashton!!!  Super happy for him :D

Honestly I don't have much else to say today but I promise as soon as I am not quite so miserable and grumpy I will post again.

In the news today...

So I was reading some news stories online earlier since I gave up on actually being able to hear the TV long enough to hear a full story lol.  Anyway, I scanned through the stories and one in particular caught my eye, a 6 year old girl was handcuffed and taken to the police station because she was throwing a temper tantrum at school and not only was a danger to herself but she injured the principal and was uncontrollable.  Here is a link to the story for those of you who haven't seen/read it.
OK, so here is my opinion on the matter.  This kid was not only being an out of control brat but she was a danger to herself and other people.  The principal got injured during her outburst and no one could get her to calm down.  Had a teacher or the principal tried to hold her or restrain her to calm her down they would have been brought up on child abuse charges.  What shocks me even more than the horrible behavior of the child is the way the mother responded to the whole situation.  She is trying to get protests together and is trying to get Al Sharpton involved  Here is the quote from the article.  "However, Johnson's parents are trying to organize a community protest against the officer's actions, including reported plans to contact civil rights activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton."  Forgive me if I am wrong here, but everything I have ever seen Al Sharpton get involved in is based on race.  Why is it necessary for him to get involved unless this mother is planning on screaming that her daughter was handcuffed and taken to the police station because shes African American?  I don't understand this one ya'll.  The other quote that literally made my jaw drop was directly from the mother and the way she dismissed her child's behavior astounds me!  Here's the quote "She has mood swings some days, which all of us had mood swings some days," Johnson's mother Constance Ruff told WMAZ. "I guess that was just one of her bad days."  OK, I get that we all have bad days, we are human and we are all entitled to have shitty days and days where we want to just pitch an all out hissy fit.  BUT THAT IS NO EXCUSE FOR THIS CHILD'S BEHAVIOR AT ALL!!!!  This all comes back to the whole parenting thing.  This is exactly what is wrong with kids today.  They aren't made to take responsibility for their actions, instead their parents dismiss what they have done with no consequences.  The article does not state anywhere that the little girl has any emotional problems or disorders to excuse this behavior so I am left to believe that this is a case of failed parenting.  Bust her ass make her apologize for her actions/behavior to everyone that witnessed it and make her do chores around the house to EARN the money it will take to fix or replace the things she destroyed.  Make HER responsible for her actions and punish her at the same time.  Life lesson! I'm going to leave it at that because I have already ranted about poor parenting once this week and I think that is more than enough lol.

Onto other news today.  There is a 17year old MAN who will not be allowed to walk at his graduation because he missed 2 days over the allowed amount of days because he was not only working 2 jobs but taking care of his mother who has cancer.  The school districts rules say that students can only miss so many days of school per year and if they go over that amount of days they will not be allowed to walk at their graduation ceremony.  In most cases I would agree with this rule, however I believe that they should make an exception for this young man due to the circumstances.  He was doing what was right for his MOTHER, he was working 2 jobs and taking her to her chemo appointments and caring for her when she was too ill to care for herself.  He was doing all of that while keeping good enough grades to play on the school baseball team and keeping up with all of his assignments.  Obviously he was keeping his grades up if he is still graduating.  I am asking you to sign the petition to support him and hopefully change the school boards mind!  Here is a link to the page.
If anyone deserves support its this guy.  There aren't too many young people out there that would give up their time and money to care for someone else.  Kudos to you Austin Fisher!

Well I am off here to get ready for my dr's appt.  As always comments are welcome and please share my page with your friends :)

Master Procrastinator!

Well, I FINALLY finished my taxes...after racking my brain all day and busting my ass to get all the info I needed to file...and I'm gettng a whopping $20 back!  BUT only after I paid $17 to file them...*sigh* if its not one thing its another I suppose...thankfully my x is splitting what he is getting back for the kids with me since we have them every other week it averages out to 6 months/6 months...thank god for small favors huh.

Now onto my kids....apparently my boys decided to get a wild hair across their asses and cause some trouble today.  They finished their homework and went outside to play, just like every other day...about 10mins after they went outside one of the neighbors comes walking up to the door to inform me that my boys were out back playing with the meters and shut off her power.  WTF?!?!  I walked out there to see them sitting on the neighbors porch(no one lives there) acting like they were totally innocent.  I asked what was going on and my oldest started spilling it all while my youngest boy stood there with his mouth shut and his hands in his pockets.  Come to find out this isnt the first time they have opened those boxes but it was the first time they decided to flip the switch inside of one of them....and of course it had to be to the ONE crazy neighbors house oi vey.  Thankfully she didn't call the front office or the cops but she still could if she wanted to.  So they are grounded to their room with no tv till thursday.  They were allowed to play with toys till their brains totally stopped working and they decided to start pushing toys through the 2 inch rip in the window screen.  Now that 2 inch rip is about  inches long and they lost playing with toys for the rest of the night.  Bed time is early tonight too.  For once my little monster princess is the best behaved of the 3 of them and thats RARE.  She actually got a green in school today, which is also a rare thing.  She has a bad habit of being bossy to the other kids in the class and usually ends up on at least yellow.  I'm super proud of her today! :)

At the moment the kids are eating dinner then its bath and bed time since its already 7:15.  As much as I love them, I can't wait till they go to bed lol.  I'm still swollen pretty bad and I have a wicked headache.  Dr appt tomorrow afternoon and hopefully they can tell me what to do about this swelling.

Well thats all for now.  As always comments are always welcome and please share this with your friends :)

Spring Break is over!!!!

Today was the first day back to school after spring break for 2 of my 3 kids and holy hell is it quiet around here!!!  I love my children but good lord I am so glad they went back to school today...and if last week is any indication of how this summer is going to be just kill me now lol.  My little lady has seemed kind of lost and bored without her brothers around but shes seemed to get back into the swing of things pretty quickly.  

I'm feeling a bit better today.  Still pretty swollen and all of the sudden I have a killer headache but other than that I'm ok.

It's that time of year again....time to start getting ready for our annual Jell-O party.  For those of you that dont know what that is, I fill a kiddie pool FULL of Jell-O and let the kids have at it.  It's insanely messy and tons of fun.  This is our 4th year and our 5th party and every year there are more kids, last year we had 12 so I am expecting more this year.  Translation, bigger pool and more Jell-O....last year it took me about 250 boxes so I am going to double it for this year.  Now I just have to work out how I am going to get all of it made and keep it gelled for 3 days while the rest of it sets up since I have lost 3 of the fridges that I have had every year.  *Sigh* the things we do for our children lol.  
Heres what last year's pool looked like when it was filled 

Well it's almost time for trouble to get picked up from school so I will leave it here for now.  As always comments are always welcome and please share my log with your friends :)

Ended up in L&D tonight....

Overall today wasn't a bad day other than my kids not wanting to listen to simple come here or go play and get out from under my feet...but I can't complain because for the most part...they ALL played well together without fighting...and we even had 4 of the neighborhood kids over here!  After such an easy day the night has SUCKED!!!  We all know that pregnancy isn't always easy...and its damn sure not always fun.  With the aches, pains and weir shit that our bodies go through I am seriously shocked that we have so many people walking this earth lol.  And some of us actually do it more than once!  So it started this evening, my feet and legs are swollen rather often lately, its all part of is not, however, ok that my feet and legs were so swollen that they were hurting and had impressions where my flip flops(which were a little tight tonight) were.  Once I got all the kids ready for bed and laid down I sat down for a few mins and started seeing floating spots and had a general weak feeling, so I called my dr and he wanted me to go to L&D to have my BP monitored....oh what fun!  So I spent the last 2 hours hooked up to monitors and being poked and prodded and all sorts of fun stuff...all of that to be told that my BP is a little high but not enough to worry about and that I need to stay off my feet as much as possible with 3 kids, drink more water(which is pretty much all I drink since most everything else gives me horrid heartburn), try not to get too hot because it will cause me to get dehydrated and that can cause more problems(it was in the mid 80's today, I seriously thought I was going to burst into flames several times today), and to cut back on my salt intake(ok so thats a great theory BUT pretty much EVERYTHING has salt in it and I eat fairly bland as is because, again, most things give me heartburn, and now you want to take the ONE thing that gives my food a little taste away!  You may as well kill me now!)  I go to see my dr again Wednesday and he's going to do a NST and hook me up to monitor my BP again and we will go from there.  Good news is the baby's heartbeat looked perfect, he's still a grumpy little child who doesn't like his space invaded and kept running from the monitors and I'm about 3 1/2 cm dilated and 50% effaced.  For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about there, that means that once I do go into labor I only have to thin(efface) 50% more and dilate(open) 6 1/2 more cm so labor wont take quite as long.  Yay me!  Since my labors with the other 3 were all pretty quick and, for the most part, painless, I plan on laboring at home for as long as possible.  That means that I can be more comfortable and I can update here more often.  Yay for you! lol

Well, its midnight and I feel gross from walking through the hospital so I am off here to shower and pass the hell out.  G'night and as always comments as always welcome and encouraged :)

Dress your children!!!

I am a bit of a bitch when it comes to some things.  One of my BIGGEST pet peeves is seeing people in public wearing their jammies.  Yes this also means dressing your kids, even if they don't want to.  You are the parent aren't you?  This is coming from my trip to the store this morning, and it wasn't even Walmart(we all expect this kind of thing there lol).  I had to run out this morning and as I was pulling into the parking lot I see this woman and her daughter walking across the street into the store, the woman was dressed in designer clothes and had her hair and makeup done perfectly....her daughter on the other hand was wearing FOOTIE JAMMIES!!! If you can take all that time to make sure YOU look good, at least dress your child.  It reflects badly on you.  I will say that I am guilty of taking a sick child with me to the pharmacy to pick up their medicine wearing their pajamas, but that's the ONLY exception, and that's only because, one, the kid is sick and when we get home s/he is going back to bed anyway, and two, its easier not to have to fight with a knee high monster who is ill tempered about changing only to have to do it again 20mins later when we get back home.  Now before anyone says anything about "well maybe the little girl was sick" she was literally running and jumping around and being a "normal" kid.  Even if she was sick, if she was behaving that way, she could have changed her clothes.  This my friends is where being a PARENT comes in.  See, I know how much it can suck to fight a child on something that they don't want to do, I have been doing it for 8 years now(not as long as some but long enough to know how hard it is).  Kids can be absolute TERRORS when they don't want to do something and they can make even the toughest person want to run screaming from the house and never return.  This is where discipline comes into play.  Yes, I said it, DISCIPLINE *gasp*.  If they want to act like that then there needs to be some sort of consequences for their behavior period.  Most parents let the kids call the shots, they get away with pretty much anything they do because parents are AFRAID to do anything about it.  Time to take back control people.  We have kids robbing and killing people and I firmly believe that if they had consequences for their actions their entire life they might just stop and think before they did something that horrible.  Today's kids are, for the most part, disrespectful, mean, and don't care about anyone but themselves.  Time outs don't always work, talking to them doesn't always work, and letting them do what they want in hopes that they make the right decision rarely ever works.  All this crap about don't fuss at kids because it messes with their self esteem, or don't punish them because then they will think they are bad and it will make things worse, or don't spank your kids because it jut teaches them to hit....its all BULL SHIT!!!  Lemme tell ya, I grew up getting my ass busted if I did something that warranted it, I got grounded to my room for doing stupid shit I KNEW I wasn't supposed to do, I got my mouth washed out with soap for cussing or talking back to my elders.  Guess what, I survived, I had and still have respect for other people and myself, I know right from wrong, I know that if I do something that there are consequences for my actions.  So did like 95% of my generation, and my generation was the last one that had this kind of discipline because about the time I was becoming a teenager is when you were hearing all this hippy dippy crap about how parents have been raising their kids wrong for the  I will be the first to say that my kids get time out, they get grounded to their rooms, yes even spanked.  I will also tell you that my kids RESPECT their elders and other children, they help people when they see that they need help, their teachers are constantly telling me how well behaved they are and that its a refreshing change.  Granted they can push my buttons and will push limits at home, and I am by no means saying that they are perfect, but for the most part my kids are very well behaved. Because I discipline them.  Go ahead and blast me if you want to but I will stand by every word I have written little rant about dressing your kid before going out in public is over lol.

just another day....

First I want to say that boys are nasty little creatures...don't believe me?  Babysit a little boy between the ages of 4-8 and you'll see.  They just do weird and gross things.  Don't get me wrong I love my boys and find most of the gross things they do highly entertaining, they just usually leave me asking why?  Take the other day for boys were outside playing and it was cold so we had the front door shut so I couldn't see them all the time.  Before anyone gets their panties in a bunch we live in a small court and are in the back of it, not to mention they don't run off EVER, that was stopped after the first time it happened.  Anyway, I was sitting on the couch and I kept hearing this loud THUD THUD THUD...typically I wouldn't think anything of it because we have 2 neighbors that are doing some work to their homes, but it was the middle of the day and those people were at work.  I opened the door to see one of my boys climbing out of a trashcan, you know the ones that the city provides, the thudding that I kept hearing was my other son and his friend hitting the trashcan with baseball bats.  Apparently they all took turns getting into this nasty ass trashcan and letting the other 2 hit it so they could see what it sounded like on the inside.  OK, not the nastiest thing they have ever done by far, but what in the holy hell possessed you to get IN AN OUTSIDE TRASHCAN?!?!?!  I mean, really?  They did however, learn that it is quite loud inside there with 2 other people beating on it with bats, so I guess their little experiment served some kind of purpose?  I like to think it did anyway, it keeps me from having to question them only to get shrugs and "I don't knows" for answers.

My oldest is going to be 8 this weekend...where the hell did time go?!!?!?!?!  It seems like just yesterday he was a little drooling, screaming poop machine....honestly the only thing that has changed is he doesn't drool anymore lol.  I have yet to buy him anything for his birthday, I don't have the slightest idea what he wants other than Star Wars stuff and he'e been into Star Wars for so long now that there aren't to many toys that he doesn't have that are in his age range or my price range.  He likes science so I'm thinking about getting him a make your own bubble gum lab thing.  The child chews gum constantly.  Other than that I am at a total loss as to what to get for him.  Ya I know, bad mommy for not knowing what my own child wants.  But in my defense, hes a pretty picky kid and rarely shows interest in toys and such.  Well, aside from the usual swords and guns that they all play with outside, but part of me is telling me that they don't need anymore of those and they get left outside or broken anyway so whats the point?  Meh, I'll figure it's going to take me going to the toy store and walking around like I'm lost for awhile to find what I am looking for, but I'm sure something will jump out at me.

Took all 3 of them to the dentist the other oh man was that an adventure.  I'm still not sure if I like the place or not.  We walked in and I kid you not there was like 30 kids all running around screaming and playing and holy god I am not cut out for that.  It's not that I don't like kids, I obviously do since I have some of my own, it's that I dont like LARGE groups of them all running around like animals lol.  Overall it didn't go too bad.  Only one of the 3 had any cavities.  Of course it had to be my oldest, who is a complete worry wart and is stressing having to go and get fillings next week.  Here's an interesting thing that I learned while we were there, kids need to drink TAP water not bottled water.  I am totally guilty of buying bottled water and sticking them in the fridge and when they want something to drink they can grab a bottle of water.  Well, sill me, I didn't think about the fact that bottled water doesn't have flouride in it and apparently, alot of other parents don't think about it either, because the nurse was saying that they have seen a significant rise in kids with cavities because they aren't getting enough flouride because parents give them bottled water and not tap water.  I feel kinda dumb for not thinking about it, but hey, we all have our moments lol.

Well I'm going to leave it at that for now.  Spring break is still going on and I need to find something to feed these 3...demanding damn kids expect to eat 3 times a day lol

As always comments are always welcome!  Talk to ya'll soon :)

Its spring break and all 3 of my kids have been out of school since Thursday oh man its going to be a LONG week...and if this is any indication as to what summer is going to be like I need to invest in some duct tape and muzzles now lol!  All they did Friday was fight and the point all 3 of them were made to sit and do nothing around 430 until their dad came to get them at 6...a little much? Maybe, but holy hell they were just over the top insanely just....UGH!  Besides it didn't kill em to sit there for awhile.  So anyway, they went to their dads house Friday evening and I called to tell them goodnight and of course they were in trouble....then come Saturday morning I called to talk to them again and my ex answered the phone and says hello, hang on...then I hear him telling the kids that if they didnt knock their shit off he was going to send them back to my house! Sorry buddy, mom's on vacation till Monday!!
They came over Sunday for a few hours and they got their Easter are they spoiled.  What can I say, I'm not exactly rolling in money so I get them what I can when I can.
They got here bright and early this morning...lemme tell ya...I am not a morning person AT ALL...I got up and went to put my pillows and blanket away in the closet and walk into my son's room to catch them watching Bevis and Butthead do America...and of course they have to mimic what they see on TV so the rest of the morning they randomly put their shirts on their heads and quoted one of the more famous lines from the movie...."I am the great cornholio I need TP for my bunghole"  *sigh* boys will be boys I guess.....
As for the rest of the day, its been pretty far lol.

Now onto other things...I have decided that when I go into labor with the one I'm cooking now I will be blogging and updating my FB to keep me entertained...and to give an account of how things are going....and to tell ya'll exactly what my labor and delivery are like stage by stage...before I forget all the pain and discomfort of it all.  I'm due 5 weeks from today, May 14th, but the way things are going I'm going to guess that he will be here before the end of April....not that I'm going to complain about that...I am BEYOND ready to have my body back to myself lol.

Well thats all I have for this update...keep an eye out for another one soon...and as I have said before, comments are always welcome :)

Things I never thought I would have to say...

As a mom we are all guilty of being reduced to a babbling, nonsense talking idiot from time to time when it comes to our kids.  My kids have the power to do this with very little effort.  My response to whatever they just did is usually something like this, "How...what the...but...why did...for the love of...*sigh*", and for added confusion I can never remember the name of the child standing there trying to look innocent lol.  While this is rather amusing to anyone that isn't directly involved in the situation it is totally frustrating to me.  THEN you have those moments that you have to say things that shouldn't even be in the same sentence together let alone having to tell this little person these things.  You would think it would be common sense not to eat a sandwich while pooping, but for some reason it's not and I find myself saying things like this at least once a day.  Here is a list of some of my all time favorites.

*  Don't bite the dog

* Just because the dog licks you does not mean you should lick the dog....I don't care if you are kissing him back that's gross and we don't use our tongue to kiss

* Don't pick your nose at the table.

*Don't put boogers in your brothers milk, no it won't turn it green

* Stop trying to pee on your brother

* Why do you insist on peeing out of the top of the tree?  And please stop using your brother as a target!

* Stop undressing your sisters barbies.  No barbies boobies aren't real and stop squeezing them

* Your brother is not to be used for target practice, neither is your sister

* We don't eat sandwiches, or any other food while pooping

* (talking about my tampons)  Those are not fishing poles and you aren't going to find any fish in the potty

*(talking about my pantyliners) Those are not wallpaper

* What possessed you to pee in the trashcan?

*  Poop is not fingerpaint, please stop wiping it on the bathroom walls

* Don't try to put your penis down the drain while the water is draining out

These are just a few of my favs, ther are MANY MANY MANY more of them but I'm drawing a blank at the moment as to what they are.  I'm sure I will add more of these as time goes on.  The stories behind these are pretty funny but without being able to tell them in person they tend to lose something in translation.  I hope you got at least a giggle from them.  :)

If I hear MOMMY one more time.....

Lets face it, as moms we all have those moments when we just want to run out the front door screaming and not look back.  I'll be the first to admit that I have those moments about once a day sometimes lol.  That's what I created this blog for, so I can sit down in the few moments of time I have and let it all out.  

A little about me, I'm 26, separated from my husband and I have 3 kids ages 8, 6 and 4 and one due in May.  I tend to be very outspoken and have a bit of a, weird? sense of humor.  I will say what everyone else is thinking but won't say, I will tell you EXACTLY what is on my mind and I don't really care if it offends you because if I had to say it, you needed to know it.  I curse a lot so if you don't like the use of some rather colorful language then you may not want to keep reading this.  Now, onto the real reason I am doing this....

I love my children more than anything in this world, even waffles, I would do anything for them, and I mean ANYTHING...but there are days that it gets to be a bit overwhelming.  From here on out I will be posting abut the daily things that go on around here, the good the bad the funny and all the in between.  So sit back and laugh, cry and scream with me.  Comments are always welcome and I would love to hear some of your mommy moments.
