10 on Tuesday

1. MY MOM IS COMING TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Can you tell I'm excited???

2. Tanier and I are on a mission to conquer X-Bike (Cal Fit's take on Spinning)... so far it's conquering us.  But that will change soon enough.  As for now, I hurt.

3. My children slept until 7:30 the other day I swear to you I thought they were both dead, hurt or sick.  I woke up at 7:20 and laid in bed having an internal panic attack until I heard Zac throw his paci out of his crib (signaling to us that he was ready to get up) and then heard Deacon stumble out of bed.

4. Deacon has recently become REALLY proud of Zac.  Up until now Deacon has essentially ignored Zac... but lately the littlest things can get Deacon so excited-- "Mommy!  Look!  Zac claps when I clap!"  "Mommy!!!  Zac screams when I scream!"  "Mommy!  ZAC CRAWLED" ("yes Deacon... he's been crawling for quite some time now... but I'm proud too buddy").  I can't begin to explain how happy this makes me.

5. I've got my gallbladder surgery scheduled... one week from today!!!

6. Every year I get really excited to start a garden... despite the fact that the majority of things I grow are things we don't really enjoy eating.  Case in point: tomatoes.  But the thing is, Deacon loves to see our garden grow and help water the garden... and I do too!  So we take a lot of veggies to neighbors and friends when we can actually grow things.

7. Damien watched a video of a friends little girl at Chinese School (she was BEYOND cute and reciting a poem in Chinese... or was it Mandarin???) and now wants to send Deacon to Chinese School. Can you picture it???  I can, and it makes me laugh so hard.

8. We just started a new system with Deacon and the money he earns (from extra jobs, gifts, etc...)- he has three jars for his money... Spending, Savings, Givings.  We took all his cash/coins and spread it out on the floor and I asked him how much he should put in each jar.  He truly understands what each jar means... and he chose to put the most money in the Givings jar.  The boy is amazing.

9. I want to get my chin pierced.  I think Damien would divorce me if I did.  I also think my mom would try to take my children away from me.  And my friends might disown me as well.  Overall, I don't think it would be worth it.  LOL

10. I could really go for some Thai food right about now.  And cake.

I would sneak in to your bedroom in the middle of the night, and pull out the chin piercing .....

Amanda said...

But mom, tell me how you really feel.

Amanda said...

Martha said...
