Havin our Friday night movie night one day early since we have plans tomorrow night with some friends. I can't wait to watch this weeks pick! Coraline :) My Koko can't get over how it's HER name but with a "line" at the end. Although, the buttons on the eyes kinda freak me out.
I love having my kids home for the Summer. I love taking them to the pool and beach and spending time with them. BUT, towards the end of the Summer everyone starts buggin everyone and I feel lately that I'm getting to that point. The past FIVE DAYS have been non stop talk from Jake about freakin military ribbons and ALL their meanings. Who has what, when dad can get what, what his idol Peter Pace has (he's memorized this), what HE'S going to get....etc.
I'M GOING CRAZY.
He'd been beggin me to take him to the PX and buy some more ribbons for himself so we finally did today. Not only did he get more ribbons, but he bought himself the Colonel Insignias too. He'd been wearing the Lt. Colonel oak leaves from Uncle Charles but I guess he got promoted.
Yes, Jake can tell you what EVERY SINGLE RIBBON he wears means and how many times he's received it. He knows Pace's uniform better than his own face. He googles Pace's name about 700 million times a day to make sure nothing changes or he didn't forget something. And the best part? He feels the need to make sure I KNOW all of this too.
Like I said...
I AM GOING CRAZY.
I miss you, please come back soon.
Love The Mutha.
Things have been a tad crazy over here lately. Coming home from a trip kinda throws you outta whack and that's exactly what's happened. This week Miah and Kora have been in Sports Skills Camp and they're loving it. Miah is especially good at anything involving running. He LOVES going fast and showing off his speed. Kora is amazing at basketball. She was making baskets left and right and blowing all the other kids (and boys) outta the water.
I had to purchase one of these little babies after my OB appointment on Wednesday. I'm at 28 weeks now and am showing signs for preeclampsia. High blood pressure, protein in urine, dizziness and swelling. I'm supposed to take my BP several times a day to make sure it stays normal and if not, I'm supposed to take it easy for the rest of the day. Not too excited about that since I can't really AFFORD to just go "take it easy" if needs be. I mean, I WILL...but it'll be hard with the other chickens runnin around. I got a blessing last night and I feel good about handling whatever may come my way.
What the CRAP is up stupid barbers who think they need to give my Miah a new hairline? I get sooo freakin annoyed at this. It's happened several times and I just don't get it. YES he's Latino but did I TELL you to shave him a new hairline? UHmm NO. Did you do it to my white boy son Jakob who is getting a haircut at the exact same time? Uhhm NO. SO WTC?! It pissees me off because once they do this, it's like UNfixable. You have to let it grow out and personally...I think it looks ridiculous. We live in a freaking military town and for some reason it's IMPOSSIBLE to find a DECENT barber who can give you a good lookin high reg with a smooth fade and LEAVE THE TOP ALONE. UGH.
(Kim, you actually have been the only one who has done a good job with the boys but I'm so last minute that it doesn't always work out for me to come by.)
I'm really wanting to eat about 15 bags of this yummy carmel popcorn but my SS won't send me the recipe. I'm just sitting here...waiting...just...waiting...
