Open Gym

Open Gym at Splitz Gymnastics in Canton! So much fun and so worth $5! Now I just have to figure out some sort of activity to get her enrolled in for the Fall. Will it be Polish dance? Will it be swimming, dance, gymnastics, art, some sport???? All great ideas and she would love them. The question is...CAN WE AFFORD IT? Isn't that always the question!

Birthday alert!

Happy Birthday to my AWESOME twin sisters!

Love you so much you beautiful women of God you!!!!

Drama Queen

I am inspired to write this post based on a Facebook status I saw today from a friend.
Don't let the picture on the top of my blog fool you, my three and a half year old is a drama queen and so disobedient. I have just about had it! I thought I was all alone until I read her status about how three and a half year olds are her least favorite age because they are full of drama and so disrespectful. I thought to myself, "What! Someone else feels this way too." Just this morning I asked Mena to move over while folding laundry on my bed just a inch or so. This shocked her that I would even think of having her move. She proceeded to try and bargain with me and I warned her more than once that there will be consequences to her actions. She proceeded to throw laundry off the bed and have a mild dramatic tantrum, so I spanked her (not hard at all). She ran off yelling, "How could you do this to me!" and I even heard some "Don't you love me anymore?" I mean, where in the world do children learn this stuff.
The disrespect that comes out of her mouth is driving me up a wall. I told her there are going to be some changes around here...we'll see if she cooperates!!! I doubt it will be very easy.
Do any of my readers feel the same way? Am I alone in this?

Wordless Wednesday!

Pooped out!

Playing Pregnant

Lately, Mena has been pretending to be pregnant just like Mommy. She named her baby "sis" and she is due in June, the same time as her real baby brother. She has such an imagination and is extremely empathetic. Quite a combination on a little 3 and a half year old. We are all looking forward to when little baby Josh arrives. We'll just see if "sis" arrives around that time as well.

New Van!

We are finally getting our van tomorrow. We found the one we wanted about a month ago. It is a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan with 45,000 miles on it. We found an AMAZING deal on this van because it had a salvage title. There is no way we could have afforded it otherwise. It is all fixed up and we had it inspected by our mechanic so we are hopeful there will be no problems! Anyway to make a long story short, we had to wait forever for the rebuilt title to come back from the SOS. It took two weeks the first time. Then they sent us a regular title so we had to send it back and get the rebuilt title like we had originally wanted. This is there way of checking up on dealerships to make sure they are doing everything legally. If they were to keep the clean title, SOS would come and black list them! So, we had to wait 2 more weeks for the real title to come back. It is finally here and we are getting our van tomorrow. Hooray!!!
