a REAL kid

Jared(11) and Jarom(5) were just wrestling and playing with their nerf sword and shield. Jared lays down on the floor and says "hang on Jarom, I need to take a break...I'm wheezing". Jarom gives him 5 seconds, sighs, and then frustratingly says "get up Jared!! and play like a REAL kid would!!"
It was priceless.

Just what I wanted my son to hear

So today we were sitting at the breakfast table...Steve, Jarom and I. I gave Steve 2 hard-boiled eggs. As he peeled them:

Steve: mmmmm, I can't wait until Easter

Jarom: (laughing) you have to sit on the Easter bunny's lap

Steve: No I don't

Me: Jarom saw the Easter bunny at the mall the other day...he opted NOT to sit on the Easter bunny's lap

Steve: good choice Jarom, Easter bunnies are pedophiles!! Why do you think they always have such a huge smile on their faces?

a bit dramatic

Steph called me from school this afternoon...crying. Ms Glover hates me!! She kept me after class and I missed my ride home. Now granted, Ms Glover IS the only one of her teachers that ever gives Steph negative remarks on her report card but I believe my drama Queen was being a bit...dramatic!! That's my Steph...a bit dramatic! But that's why we love her...almost as much as she loves the Colonel.

Such a loser I am!! I can't believe it's been months since I last posted. SO much has gone on!! I don't even know where to begin. In December Steph was in the hospital for her asthma...poor baby didn't get out until Christmas Eve. But what a wonderful Christmas gift that was! I spent my last holiday with my great friend Vicky, she passed away the day after Christmas. We loved her so much and she will be deeply missed. Football has started for the Jared again, Justin and Steph are in track, I'm trying out for the biggest loser...again. Steph had her birthday, Steve had a birthday and scored an awesome authentic spurs warmup jacket I had a birthday (got a blood transfusion for my birthday...and another one 3 days later) AND last but not least...Josh got married!! That's baby got married! Can you believe it?!We bought our final home!! With a little help. Never again will we move until Jarom is out of high school. We moved the tremendous distance of right next door. And we LOVE this house!! All are welcome whenever you'd like. We just recently filled the pool and it looks GREAT!! Prior owners didn't keep it up while it was on the market. Here's the kids draining it and pressure washing it...and skating in it when it was empty...cause that's what boys do (as I was informed).So much more to tell...SO many more pics to post...but I am drained and exhausted...just got out of the hospital. Will post more soon. Much love to you guys...hope people even see this post...It's been so long since I've posted I don't know that anyone checks it anymore.
