This morning as I was playing with & dressing the youngest 2 boys. I was thinking about how big they are getting. Life is flying by and they keep getting bigger.
I was telling them both to stop growing and that I just wanted them to stay babies FOREVER! Coleton told me no he is a big boy. We have been talking a lot about how being a big boy means not drinking out of ba-ba's & not wearing diapers. So when I am telling Coleton that I want him to not grow up & stay a baby forever he proceeds to tell me...
"Sorry mom but you told me I am a big boy"
The kid listens & uses the things I say against me. {sigh}
The kid is smart!!!

Coleton & the ba ba

I have been trying {unsuccessfully} to get the bottle away.

Coleton is 3 & far to old for a ba-ba.

Today he was asking for his ba ba and I told him that only babies drink out of ba ba's. He told me he wasn't a baby but wanted his "big boy ba ba".

"No big boys drink out of cups only babies drink ba ba's and wear diapers. You are a baby."

"No I am not". he says

"yes you are. Gage is a baby and he still waers diapers and drinks a bottle"

Coleton is silent for a few minutes and then says...

"Alright I am a baby. "

AHHHH I am just going to throw away them all. Gage won't care and then at least I will have one of my goals accomplished for January.

little bunny foo foo

Coleton's version of little bunny foo foo goes..
"Little bunny foo foo hopping through the forest
scooping up the field mice and bopping then on the head,
Down came the tooth fairy and she said...
Little bunny foo foo I don't want to see you
scooping up the field mice and bopping them on the head."

good morning... or is it?

you know how first thing in the morning before you are really full awake you sometimes see things or don't see things but think that you see things especially out of the corner of your eye?
That was me this morning. I sat up in bed trying to wake up and I thought I saw something running across the carpet in front of my bedroom door. My heart jumped for a minute it is winter and fury little mice like to find warm places to stay inside. I haven't seen any mice in the house for a while though. So I thought I am just seeing things however because I haven't seen any I thought maybe my luck had run out.
I got up and moving to get Remington to school because we were running a little bit behind schedule. I heard Gage and went in to his room and then took him to help me wake up Remington. Remington did not want to get up. He had a late night because he had his first pack night and was very excited about that.
I started to walk out of his room to go and get him some breakfast when all of the sudden I see a fur ball come out of the bathroom. Startled I look and said...
"Remington your hamster is loose."
He jumped right out of bed and said Where?
Yes I am not totally losing my mind I did see something running down the hall. I am grateful that it was just the hamster and not anything else. We were able to catch her and get her back in her cage. Ryan forgot to put her water bottle back in and so there was a hole that she was able to get out of the sneaky little thing.
However the drama of the morning does not end there.
Last night before pack meeting as I was getting the boys ready to go Gage was at midgy's cage. He was putting loose bits of things in her cage. Things like food that had spilled out & piece of her bedding anyway she bit him on his little finger. Nothing to bad just a little blood and a few tears. However this is NOT the first time she has bitten one of the boys She got Coleton too. So needless to say when I called Ryan and told him he said that was the end of her. So last night when he got home He took midgy out back and took care of her. If you know Ryan I am sure that you know the method of disposal. I didn't ask about the details and I don't really want to know.
Anyway this morning Remington discovered that Midgy was gone and he lost it. He was crying and very upset. He feels that she was part of out family and that Dad was unfair. Why couldn't we have taken her to a pet store? Ryan told him that he didn't want to go sell Midgy to a pet store and then have another family take her and the have Midgy bit another kid.
Both times Midgy bit the boys weren't doing anything to bug her. We finally got Remington to calm down and Hopefully he has a good day at school.
Once again we are back to just 1 hamster who seem to be a escape artist. I may have to keep a closer eye on her.

elbow update.

I went to the doctor today to have my elbow looked at. He prodded and poked and I had some x-rays taken and he said it looked like I may have a teeny tiny fracture at the bottom of my elbow. Nothing to worry about and it will heal in a few weeks. So take it easy and not push it to hard. Its my right arm so we'll see how that goes. I guess no more pushing myself at kickboxing.

I made french toast for breakfast this morning. As I was gathering ingredients Coleton looked at me and said... "I don't want my bread cooked"
So instead of yummy french toast with homemade cinnamon syrup he ate a plain piece of bread. WEIRDO!!!

on a side note my elbow is still hurting from my fall on the ice on new years eve and it seems to be getting worse. I made an appointment with the doctor on Monday I hope its nothing to major!

New Year Goals.

I have heard that it is easier to keep those goals if you write them down and then be accountable for them. I think I am going to try little monthly goals to be able to meet my BIG goals. So here are a few things that I would like to accomplish in January.

1- Get Coleton potty trained
2- Break Gage from the binky this may take longer than January he is VERY attached.
3- No more "ba-ba's" for either Coleton or Gage this may taking some talking and convincing Ryan to help. He seems to be my main problem :)
4- work out at least 4 times every week

I have lots more that I want to accomplish but I think that I will focus on these so I don't overwhelm myself. I hope you all have a very happy new year!
