I Am Already Planning For My Next One!!!

Don't get all worked up now.

Not a next kid.

My next mode of transportation.

The lease is not up on my Jeep Grand Cherokee until next year but I'm already narrowing my choices down:

Honda Crosstour

Acura ZDX

Subaru Outback

Honda Pilot

Chrysler Town & Country Minivan
Okay, the minivan was a joke, I'm sure most of you figured that out though.  Even if I had 10 kids, I'd find a way to NOT have a van of any sort.  They just scream "I'm a MOM!!!".  They only thing cool about this minivan is the bar, errrrr, I mean entertainment table for the kids.

If We Had a Girl

If we had a girl we would be filing for bankruptcy.  Seriously though, I would spend 5 times more money on clothes for a girl than I do on Davis.  I buy Davis a lot of clothes, he has an extensive wardrobe so considering how much stuff he has I'd need at least 4 more closets if we had a girl.  She'd be wearing Juicy, Matilda Jane, Ugg boots, you get the idea.  Not that they don't make cool clothes for boys because they do, but not everything is cute, almost all girl clothes are cute.  I have yet to see a truly ugly outfit for a girl, I'd buy the entire store if we had a girl.   I'd have a pair of shoes for every outfit instead of the two paris of shoes I have for Davis, I mean guys don't really have a pair of shoes for every outfit, unless your gay or my husband.  My husband likes clothes and shoes, he has almost as many pairs of shoes as me and he has twice as many clothes. 

So the moral of this story is, my husband is not only happy we have a boy so he can play sports, but he is also happy that having a boy is easier on the wallet when we go shopping for clothing.

Honey, I Think We've Been Robbed

We had a date night last Saturday, when we came home I thought we had been robbed.  Then I remembered we had a toddler and I failed to clean up the path of destruction he left behind before we took him to grandmas house for the evening. 

Before we had Davis and before he became mobile, the house stayed spic and span all the time.  Nothing ever out of place, never.  Now you walk into our house and it looks as though somebody robbed the joint.  I promise you I pick his toys up every single day, actually make that 5 or 6 times a day.  It never fails though, the moment I get everything back in its rightful place a tiny little person is behind me dumping buckets of toys out again.  It doesn't even have to be toys he is dumping all over the place, here is a list of what the little tornado can do:

- Leave a purse out, it will be dumped over
- Leave a pair of shoes out, good luck finding the match
- Leave the office door open, good luck finding that paperwork again
- Leave the doors to the bathrooms open, good luck finding your deoderent, heck good luck finding the trash can
- Leave the bedroom door open, good luck finding the toddler, he can open closet doors and enjoys hiding in them
- Let him in the laundry room, good luck finding the lint trap in the dryer, he likes to take it out
- Leave the gate up that blocks him out of the kitchen, you will be picking up lids to tupperware for the next century

I clean my home every day, it takes me 50 times longer than it used to because Davis follows me around, opening drawers, emptying whatever might be in them.

Would I have it any other way? 


Who needs matching shoes anyways when you have a kid as cute as mine!

Davis is 17 months old today, not 18 months.  I'm a mom, what can I say, my brain is overwhelmed.

Quick Update

1. Davis says: Mommy, Daddy and Tick-Tock

3. I am going to bed

4. One more thing before I go to bed, Davis will be 18 months tomorrow!!!  Where did it go??

It Always Happens Like That

Last time I posted about Davis sleep problems was the end of April, he had been going on no sleep since the beginning of December at that time, he was up 4-6 times each night.  It was brutal and I was half insane the day I wrote the post asking for help.  That very night he slept all night for the first time since the first week of December, then he did it again, and again and again.  It was so nice.  The beginning of July he fell back into the trap of not sleeping.  He wasn't getting up 4-6 times a night though, he was just plain getting up and fighting laying back down.  I caved back into laying on the couch with him until he was totally out of it, which could take up to 2 hours.  Then putting him in his crib.  By the time this all happened it would be 5 a.m. and he'd get up at 6:30 a.m.  Let's just say I've felt joyous for the last month and a half.  A few days ago I blogged that I wouldn't be blogging anymore because I just hadn't been posting anything worth much and was tired and just felt like blogging wasn't something I had time for anymore, I was more focused on napping when Davis did during the day.  Is it strange that the day I wrote my "farewell for a while" entry that he started sleeping all night??  I am positive the sleep problems have had to do with the fact he got his first 4 molars over the summer and is currently working on all 4 eye teeth.  Anyway you look at it, lack of sleep sucks and does something to your mind that you cannot even explain.  I give props to the working moms that deal with children with sleep issues, I just cannot imagine going to work and trying to focus on something important.  Not that what I do isn't important, but seriously, going into a job where you have to concentrate on serious things and make no mistakes has gotta be brutal sometimes when you haven't slept in days.

No More

I am done blogging for a while.  Davis' sleep problems have hit a new all time low of only 3 hours each night.  Needless to say I'm far too exhausted to blog because when he actually does nap, so do I.

I am sure I'll blog again, as far as when, ask Davis.

Facebook is not only a fun way to keep in touch with old friends, current friends, new friends, family, etc...  But it also serves as a source of entertainment for me.  Take this old friend from junior high that I am Facebook friends with.  I am not making fun of her situation, so let's get that straight, I feel bad for her.  But the shit she posts on Facebook, in my opinion, should be kept to herself.  Then again, this is America and we can say what we want, but I really doubt all her Facebook friends want to know that she started a weight loss detox program and hasn't shit in 4 days, then when she finally does shit she posts about it.  She says more weird stuff but I'm not going to mention it here because what I find humerous, readers of my blog may not.  I've considered de-friending her because I think she is borderline crazy, but her posts kind of make me giggle and besides everytime someone de-friends her, she makes a point to post something on Facebook about it.  I'm not getting outted as someone who de-friended her.

I think she has a lot of personal struggles she is trying to overcome, but I don't think everyone on Facebook needs to know about them because to me they are very personal issues that should be kept to a small circle of people.

You gotta love the age of social media.  As I sit here typing stuff that nobody probably cares about on my blog.  Leaving people to wonder, why did she blog about that??  HaHa

I am obsessed with taking a cruise this winter.  Hopefully if I bug my husband enough he will cave just because he is tired of listening to me.  It took 5 years of whining to get a picket fence, how long do you think it will take me to get him to go on a cruise??
