My Son....He makes me proud....

This will be short but I have to share because I thought it was cute. Plus its really the only thing that I think that I have done or has happened to me today that is worth writing down. Unless you would like to hear about my fun filled day of cleaning, disciplining, yelling, Shopping, cooking and more cleaning. :) LOL! Anyway, I was at the grocery store with Jack and I was passing the checkout aisles. All of the sudden I hear Jack Screaming "I want that....Sydney, Sydney, Sydney and Ben." I looked over and there is a US magazine with Jennifer Garner (with Ben Afflek) on the front. (Jack calls her Sydney because of ALIAS) He was insistent that we get this magazine. Don't most kids go for the candy or the books with Clifford the Big Red Dog on the front? Anyway....Anyone who knows me knows that he is a child after my own heart! :) I sware, I'm not brainwashing him!! Of Course, we got the magazine after he twisted my arm a bit. That will be his bedtime story this evening. LOL! J/K...Really, I AM!

Rock a Bye Baby......

I am beginning to get used to the fact that I am having a boy and even getting a little excited now. I went shopping over the weekend (that always helps when I'm down.. :) )and got stuff for the nursery. Jack and this little one will be sharing a room since they're both boys but we didn't want to keep the same theme because, although its cute, the same thing gets old after a while. Plus, Jack needs to get a twin bed and we want to get something that will be appealing for baby and for Jack. Anyway, I got this REALLY cute stuff form Babies R Us. Its called Vintage Fire Truck by Wendy Bellisimo. You can view it on her web site if you are interested in seeing how cute this room is going to be! So for all of you folks who thought that I was an awful person and that I wouldn't love my baby if it was a boy....You can now rest assured that I will smother it with love....And Really cure baby things!

You know what I Love......

BEWARE...Before you read this.....Its just a lot of venting!
I just love it when people are SO eager to give out parenting advice!! Actually, its the people that don't actually give advice but just smile at you with that "Oh, your so young and you have no idea what your sad" smile on their face. For all of you who have kids, you know the look. The look they give you when you discipline you child in front of them or they find our that you sleep with your 2 year old or you nursed past the 1 year mark. God forbid you do anything out of the "norm of American society". (Because that is sure to produce one stand up kid) I think that thing that urkes me the worst is that its 1) done under their breath with a patronizing smile that says "I'm better than you" and 2) Its not done by people who have grown children who have experience.(most of the time) Its done by, my personal favorite, people who don't have children, or people who are in the same stage of life as you, Young adults with small children. How does that make sense? How are those people any more qualified to make a judgment on how to raise My child. I am pretty sure that people think that we don't make decisions about parenting through our convictions but through just plain laziness and ignorance. I know that we all have our misconceptions and our downfalls but when it comes down to it we are all trying to do the best we can For our children. Isn't that what matters. I could go on but I think that everyone gets my drift. Anyway....I just really had to get that off of my chest....Whew...I feel better now! :) Thanks for listening to my vent session!

Life......It keeps going

Well, Sorry it has been so long since I posted. It has been a crappy month! Mostly because I don't enjoy being pregnant much and everything, good and bad, seems to be magnified by 1000. I cant tell you how many times I have wanted to call my mom up just cry and vent. She was always really good at saying all the right the things to make me feel better. Unfortunately, that's not a possibility. Also, to all who don't know, we now know that we are having another boy. Yipee! This has been the root of a lot of my despair the last few weeks. I know it sounds horrible, but I thought with the year that we had God would have given us our little girl. Guess Not! I am grateful that its healthy and I, of course, wont love this child less, but this is really going to take some getting used to. I really just wanted two kids, so its kind of a bummer that I may never have a girl. Anyway, I have also been sick for like 3 weeks, I cant seem to get my energy level up and, well, nevermind.....I'll stop whining now. Its not real constructive. So, anyone have any name suggestions? Were stumped! OH, and Please, don't comment if your going to say how horrible I am for being disappointed that I am having a boy...I'm really tired of that. Thanks! OK, bring on some cool boy names!
