Good-byes, Verbs, Teething and Get Aways

First of all, I have a favor ... PLEASE VOTE FOR A HAIR COLOR ... see the side bar for instructions and to vote!!!

That being said, we now return you to your regularly scheduled programing ...

Well, my boys are gone. Again. And I don't like it.
I got used to all of the activity around the house (not that it is in ANY way quiet on a regular basis!) and seeing the girls fall a little more in love with their big brothers every day. And, much as I hate to admit it, I kinda like the constant bickering and teasing that happens when they are here. They are fun guys and I love 'em to pieces. I miss 'em when they're gone.

I had a long talk with Hattie's speech therapist yesterday - I just love this woman. She always gives me ideas and tips to be working on. Yesterday we talked about verbs. Stimulating conversation, I know! Seems our Miss Hattie tends to forget to ad the verbs to her newly forming sentences. OR she doesn't always choose an appropriate verb. For instance, the dog next door barks. ALOT. and every time he does Hattie says "I see a puppy". She also says that when she sees a puppy. ANY puppy. Whether she sees, hears, smells, pets or tastes a dog, it's the same thing - "I see a puppy"! So, we gotta work on that one. But at least she is expressing herself.

She is also singing songs. One song in particular is a Wonder Pets song about a bee. A song with many, many words. And Hattie knows 'em all. It is so sweet to hear her sing it. I love that girl!

Sophie's second tooth is coming in. Have I told ya how very much I love teething? I HAVEN'T? That us be because I DON'T!!!!! I can't stand watching my baby deal with pain. She is normally the happiest kid around. But when teething, not so much. Breaks my heart. I just want to take all of the pain away.
I guess that makes me like just about every mom in the world.

Hubby and I had to alter our get away plans again. We are now just going to have a day long date. No overnight stay anywhere. Not right now anyway. We will wait til we can afford to do it right. Or at least without any guilt over spending money on ourselves.
So, we are gonna go to the BIG mall that is about an hour away. They have many things that make it special. Like a BIG Brass Pro shop for my man - who has gotten so many gift cards from there we could shop all day! And I can usually find a little something for myself, so that is good! They also have a movie theatre, which will be showing the new Narnia movie. VERY excited about that one!!! As well as our favorite restaurant. The very first time Hubby took me out to eat, we went to a little place called On The Border. YUMMY Mexican food - and when I can get a good enchilada, I am a happy girl! The night he proposed - On The Border. And three guesses who catered our wedding. Yep, I ate salsa in a wedding dress! Oh, wait ... I never ate at my reception. Too busy being social. But I did enjoy the sample tray they made up to show us what they would be serving!!!! I am excited about that one!!!!

So, there ya go!

Oh, did I mention ... PLEASE VOTE!!!

3 of ya left some love:

I know what you mean about kinda liking all the noise, teasing, bickering, etc. When its too quiet, I sure miss the noise and everyone that makes that noise!

Oh, and I like the wedding hair! :)

Have a great weekend.
Hugs and blessings~

Sounds like your getaway date should be fun! I love letting Big Daddy shop at Bass Pro, as long as there's also a Bath and Body Works in the bargain.
