Not me Mondays- The video post



For Christmas we did not get the little man a big wheel hopping that adjustable seat would help him to reach the peddles (on account of him being on the short side and all). We did not insist on a big wheel because both me and the hubby had them growing up and we dont live through your child at all.

So yesterday the little man did not try out his new 'bike' and come to find out that he still can not reach the peddles. So he did not have more fun pushing it around.

It was also not just above freezing outside, the neighbors yard was not still covered with frost while the hubby was not washing the car. So we dont now have a nice shinny sheet of ice in the driveway.

All of this did not happen while the little man was wearing his cow boots on the wrong feet. If you dont believe me than just see for yourself.

A little break in the rain

The cold weather is gone and the rain is back but today we got a little break from the rain and the little man ran to grab his boots to go out and play.


Didn't he do a good job of dressing himself. I just love how the boots are on the wrong feet. I also go such a kick out out of his hat. I was asking for a hat that covered his ears but there was no way he was going to put a different hat on. He was so proud.

He was playing so nicely outside I was able to do a load of dishes with out being interrupted. When I showed up outside with the camera he wanted me to stay and play. Next time I will just watch him from the window and not interfere with his play.

Not me Monday



This week while the hubby was helping the little man brush his teeth I did not hear the little man say "It taste like candy cane." I then did not ask the hubby what he put on his tooth brush. He did not reply that he put our tooth paste on it because he did not want to find the little mans paste. So now when we go to brush the little mans teeth he does not ask for the candy cane toothpaste and we do not give it to him even tough we are still working on the whole spitting not swallowing thing.

Also this week the little man was not given a very famous mouse shaped chicken nugget which he then turned over and began driving it on the table. I asked what he was doing and he did not reply that it was a car. I would never of thought that a mouse with large ears could look like a car if you flip it upside down but the little man knew.

Yesterday we did not take a trip to go see the big man in the red suit. The little man did not refuse to sit on this strange persons lap. So the hubby did not sit next to him with the little man on his lap so I could get a picture that looked a little like he was on his lap.



Happy Monday.

I am that mom

- Who makes coffee in the morning not because I want it but because the little man is asking for it.

- Who lets the dishes pile high until we have no clean bowls.

- Who's kitchen table is always sticky.

- Who looks for 'clean' jeans for me and the little man in the dirty clothes basket more often than not.

- Who's idea of a great sewing project is one that I can start and finish during nap time.

- Who finds her self just watching in amazement as the little man plays because he has such creativity and imagination.

- Who sits down at the computer to check the email and than finds myself lost in blogging, facebooking and so much more.

I am that mom but I would not change it for anything.

5 years

Has it really been 5 years since I got married to my wonderful hubby?


Time sure does fly.

Tis the season...

To be so busy that you neglect your blog. Posting on wordless days are easy but finding the time to sit down at the computer and write is much harder.

With Christmas being right around the corner my mind has been going a million miles a minute.

What to make everyone for Christmas gifts? Once I get something in my little mind something else catches my eye. And than before you know it neither one sounds good anymore.

What should the little man make for gifts? We tried making something and it was a flop. We tried another and he wanted nothing to do with it. I think that I have it narrowed down but we will see.

We put the tree up a few weeks ago but it still does not have any decorations on it. I think that this just might be a new tradition. The decorations never made it on the tree last year either.

But of course the house has lights. I had told the hubby that we cant do lights unless he has a job, but when it got closer to Thanksgiving I started to feel bad. I just know how much he likes Christmas lights. So he put up three strands just like last year. After the officer shooting in Lakewood we changed all of our lights to blue except for 4 white lights on the garage. One for each officer.


We did take a family photo for our Christmas card last night. Here is a little sneak peek.


I need to finish it up and get them printed so they can hopefully be mailed out BEFORE Christmas.

Even though I feel like I am so busy I am enjoying the Christmas season.
