The Evoulition Of a Date

We were going to go to starwars last night. (Jon has seen it and I havent and was pretty excited). We decided to go get a bite to eat first. We then went to the movie theater. The show that started right away was sold out and the one in a half hour was limited seating (I didnt want to be squished up in the front row for starwars). The next one was in an hour and a half and was too late for the babysitter. We decided to to go to Madagascar and low and behold It was limited seating too. We decided to forget the movie for the night.

But you cant waste a babysitter right? (I think that is a rule of the universe)

We went to a driving range to hit a bucket of balls. I learned that hitting a golf ball is not as easy as it looks. Jon said I should golf with him more often because he was doing really well. I also learned that I am NO WHERE NEAR ready to play a whole game of golf yet. We would be stuck on the course for days.

We then went to play an hour of pool at gateway. Someone beat their husband all but once but I cant say who.

I have to admit that I am glad that the movie was sold out.

Things I learned last night.

1. when your friend asks to draw on your forehead you should make sure that it is not a permanent marker before you say yes.

2. If it is a permanent marker you may still be lucky if you wash the ink off within the first 2 minutes of application. (i dont know if it works with all colors of permanent marker but it worked with green sharpie)

3. one should not be allowed near glass beads and permanent markers when one is giddy from inhaling too much oven cleaner.

btw: yes all the marker came off.

And were back

We are back from lethbridge. The kids enjoyed seeing the grandparets and the grandparents enjoyed seeing the kids. We all had a good time.

The kids favourite game of the weekend:

Throwing the balls out of the ball pit faster then mom can clean them up.

Moms least favourite game of the weekend:

Picking up the balls from the ball pit that were being thrown faster then they could be cleaned up.

we only stayed at grandmas and grandpas house for the last night so this game was only played about four times.

Jon's parents have this inflatable ball pit that looks like a wide open mouth. It has inflatable teeth in the gums that come out and an inflatable set of pliers that you can pull the teeth out with. One of mine, Jons and Grandmas least favourite games from a previous visit was cleaning half an ice cream bucket of bird seed out of the ball pit and all the tooth holes. Fun

One track mind

On the way home after picking up dad and running some errands last night I was saying out loud the names of buisness we were passing and Breanna was repeating after me. It became obvious that breanna was hungry.

Mom: Esso!
Breanna: Esso!

Mom: Speedy!
Breanna: Spagetti!

Mom: Denny's!
Breanna: Dinner!

Ok kid we get the point, we will feed you.

Public bathroom

You know when you have had to go to the bathroom for a while you kind of lose your mind. Well today I had to go for a while. I went down the hall in tokyo express and turned into the bathroom. As I walked In I noticed that there was only one stall and some empty space beside it. I wonderd as I began to open the door to the stall why they would not just add a second toilet and stall.

Then I saw it.... the reason why there was no stall there was because there was a URINAL!!!!! "OH MY GOSH" (I said this aloud) I turned on my heel and walked out glancing up long enough to confirm there was indeed a male figure indicating that it was a male bathroom. I turned sharply to go to the girls bathroom and walked straight into a door... Thud. Yeah Im on a roll. I then reoriented my self and went into the girls rest room. Thankfully no one was there to witness this embarassing spectacle.

At least no one needs to know how dumb I am but me. And of course anyone else who reads my blog.

5:00 am

I was up at about five. (although I kept trying to sleep until 5:30) You may be wondering why someone who has no need to be up yet gets up that early, well i will tell you...... Because... It is virtually impossible to sleep next to 20 pounds of squirming, poking, patting, "la la la", "da da da", happy awakness. Thanx Ryan.

Things I learned today

Jon Really does not like corn rellish

Sand in a poopy diaper is REALLY gross and requires more then just semi moist baby wipes and more space then inside the sliding door of a mini van to clean.

Mothers Day

Mothers Day has come and gone (well almost) I went to church this morning by myself (Jon stayed home with the kids because B is sick). When I went to sacrament I found I didnt know what to do with myself or where to sit without my Husband and kids. I eventually found someone to sit with and enjoyed sacrament. I came home to two kids sleeping. Breanna must really be feeling under the weather to have fallen asleep before 12. We had a wonderful mothers day dinner (thanx mostly to Jon) with my family over.

I am so gratefull to my family and my mom and all that they have done for me.

Signs you are addicted to blogging

  • You call a friend you havent talked to in forever just to ask them why they havent blogged yet.

  • Your child does something cute and you spend the whole day planning how you are going to blog it.

  • You base your self worth on how many comments you get on your blog.

  • You are on the phone with your friend and your realize that neither of you have said anything for 5 minutes because you are reading blogs.

  • Someone asks why they havent heard that you are Moving, Pregnant, Got a new job or some other big news. and your first response is "havent you read my blog?"

  • Your children have a bath in the juice jug on the living room floor and you dont realize it because you are blogging.

Fridge latch

Caution: This product is only a deterrent. It is not a substitute for proper adult supervision. Discontinue use when child becomes old enough to defeat it. Toxic and dangerous substances, as well as sharp-edged or pointed objects should always be placed totally inaccessible to children. Posted by Hello

Considering Breanna defeated it by ripping it off the fridge I would consider its use effectivley discontinued.

Fashion show

Most nights Breanna goes to bed really welll. Some nights, not so much. Lst night we had put her to bed and we knew she was playing. A few minutes later she came running out. "Good morning Mom and Dad" Wearing entirely different clothes then the ones we put her to bed in. She was wearing a backwards sweater and a skort with both legs in one hole. We put her back to bed again and she repeated the process 3 more times and each time wearing something different. We did our best to keep a straight face each time we put her down and eventualy the fashion show ended and she went to sleep.

Its a bouncing baby.....Hoover!

If you take bowl of spagetti, cut it into little pieces and place it in front of Ryan a magical thing happens. He begins to shovel it into his face. The kid loves spagetti. Who knew! The difference between him and a Hoover is that only a portion of what he shovels gets into him. (I hope a real vacuum cleaner would slightly more efficent.) I gave him a bowl a little while and judging by what is still in his bowl and how much is on his person He did eat quite a significant portion. Ok now that I know he will eat something I wonder if there is any condition that could result from a diet consisting of mostly spagetti. I asked Kari-Lynn this question and her awnser was "Yes, weight gain!"
Bring on the Spagetti we will have this kid chubbed up in no time!
