A Day in the Life

A Scary Moment with Jackson
As soon as I looked down at his purple covered face and the marker in his hand, I immediately called Poison Control. Yes, my son ate the tip part of a marker! Fortunately he is fine and there was no real threat of anything. I can't turn my back on him for two seconds. He is the sweetest little guy, but he is definitely ALL BOY!!! He keeps me busy!

An Embarrassing Day with Joshua
Yesterday, the kids and I headed out to run several errands. We went to Kroger, CVS, the dry cleaners, Wal-Mart, and several stores in the mall. I am surprised that we all made it, but we did. Needless to say, in EVERY store, Joshua saw fit to embarrass me!

Jason has done his job teaching the kids about what football teams we like, and which ones we don't really pull for. (Sorry), but Alabama is among the list of teams that we don't pull for. Every time Joshua sees anything "Alabama", he says, "Boo, Alabama. We don't like Alabama". Well, yesterday while out and about, we saw plenty of fans showing support for their favorite teams. EVERY TIME Joshua saw an Alabama shirt, he looked directly at the person and said in a VERY LOUD voice, "Alabama - BOO!!!"

A Sweet Moment with Abby Kate
Last night after dinner, Abby Kate told Jason that she wanted "to get her blanket, sit on the couch and snuggle while they watched a movie". The two of them watched Sleeping Beauty all snuggled up together on the couch under my old Winnie the Pooh blanket. It was such a sweet moment shared between a daughter and her daddy.

Those are the moments that remind you what you love most about being a mommy, embarassing and all :)

Jason said...

That's my boy!

And how come nobody calls Sleeping Beauty by her name? Before last night, I didn't even know she was named "Aurora"; I thought her parents just named her "Sleeping Beauty".

Don't you wish you could capture them all in your head?! I do my best, but it seems like only a few actually stick in there.

Aw your story about Abby Kate reminds me of Sara and what we have to look forward too! She's just now getting to that stage where she likes to snuggle under blankets with us!

Hahaha, and now I know what I'm in for when this baby boy gets here!

Sunny, I loved this post! It was great to read and encouraging to know that you're going through it too! Each day is like another chapter in these books called our lives. Thanks for sharing!! (I agree with Joshua...Alabama...boo!) Good kid! ;)
