Isaac napping on the kitchen floor...zzzzzzz

Isaac fought and fought his nap only to find sleep on a couple of squares of linoleum. He has the most adorable snore so be sure to turn up your volume so you can hear it.

The Andromeda Strain - yes I've actually seen this thanks to Chris and his love of sci-fi

Why am I always the last one to get the communal cold in this family? It starts with either Reed or Douglas who bring it home from some other runny nosed kid harboring all its eager malevolence in one of their unwashed hands.Then with a wrestle here and there they pass it on to Isaac, the boy who hasn't quite mastered the art of tissue-stry.Then Chris gets it when Isaac offers him a great big snotty kiss.Finally the sneaky thing finds its way to me for a final go round.To make the finale even grander, I don't just get a cold, I get the super mutated, steroid loaded, extra snotty stuffy sore throat version.That's what happens to a cold in the perfect breeding ground known as a warm, child filled house during a Michigan winter.There's nowhere for it to go when it's freezing cold outside.It must grow and go unchecked until it's too late.For all I know it could be the Andromeda strain by the time it gets to me. I'll have to keep a close eye on all the plasti…

Ahhhh..twilight...a peaceful scene taken by Chris

Why is it that when parents talk to their children they almost always use the 3rd person?I sometimes feel like I'm gaining a multiple personality disorder.Not that I didn't have that problem before I had kids, but it seems to be getting worse.I told Isaac, after giving him an annoying gun to play with, that he "should give it to mommy when she asks you for it."I don't think he really thought I was serious, but still he was probably wondering who this other mommy I referred to was.

Tonight is a long night for this mother and wife of a law student as her husband won't get home until around 10pm.She really hopes to endure the night without completely loosing it.She thinks her kids are purposely trying to drive her insane….(rattle, rattle) O.k., back to me.

Thosechildren of whom I spoke are now playing, for the moment, in harmony, giving a somewhat frazzled mommy a moment to rest.I know that any minute there will be …

Another victem of tagging...

The rules of the game should be posted at the beginning of the post. Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

1. I love to travel and learn about different cultures and languages. I want to learn to speak the musical language, Italian. I'm so dedicated that I have a book in the bathroom that's supposed to teach the language. No I don't spend that much time in the bathroom, but you never know when you'll get a chance to read.

2. A lot of weird things happen to me. I've told some about how I swallowed a drill bit at the Dentist office. I was 7 mos. pregnant and the dentist freaked out and sent me strait to the hospital. They retrieved it with no damage to my intestines. A few months ago I sewed over my middle finger, ouch! It went in 3 times and …

Cats, bats, and dental work, oh my!

It was a dark and stormy night, ah-ha!

This is what will happen if you eat too much candy corn.

It keeps getting worse!

...and worse!

Help mom! My socks won't come off for some reason.

We had a wet Halloween, as you can see from Isaac's hair, pants and socks. They insisted that we go, and I insisted that we quit when I could squeeze water out of my hair. First thing Isaac did when we got home, other than strip, was bring me a piece of his loot to de-package. Mommy quickly confiscated all the candy and put it into a large zip lock for giving out in a more controlled manner. Isaac was so loaded with sugar that he didn't fall asleep until 11pm last night!
