Need a little help people...

Might wanna read this when the kids or boss is not around :)

Okay, for my 3 readers out there, I would like to know, does sex exist when you have children? Mom stop reading now please. I need to know that sometime in the near future things are going to be different. Just from my experience, without giving TMI (I had to), either you have to be faster than a rabbit or just exist on something every now and then. And by every now and then I mean maybe monthly.

Getting the kids out of our bed would be the first step, and we are working on it. Then getting them to sleep all night. If and when I finally do that, I could wear some sexy lingerie and maybe Mike wouldn't need this, I know, again, a little TMI (I can't stop!). Anyways, are there ways around this and does anyone else suffer from this problem?

I may have to purchase some of this pasta to let him in on what I am thinking....

My little man

I had to post a pic of my beautiful little boy. This is one of my favorites of him, shows off his long eyelashes and big pouty lips. He is going to be a handsome man when he grows up. I just have to teach him the proper way to treat women, lord knows his dad sure isn't..... by the way, I love you honeybunny!

Also did not want anyone thinking I play favorites with the kids, they are both my favorite!

Money? I can make some?

I just started this new thing called PayPerPost. It seems to be this nifty company that pays you to blog, something we all enjoy doing. They give you a range of "opportunities", basically topics you can choose to incorporate into your blog. Each opportunity has a different payscale but they are available to everyone! So anyone and everyone with a blog can do this, I signed up today and this is my first post. And to think there was a way to make money sitting right here that I had not tried. There are several blogs out there I read that have already taken advantage of this easy way to bring in some extra income. For a stay at home parent, such as myself, how could you go wrong? Making a little extra doing something you were going to do anyway! How cool is that?

Growing up is hard to do

Unless you have a mom like me. In which case it is easy because you are spoiled rotten. Seriously though, I have been boohooing lately about my kids growing up. It could be that or I ran out of prozac, never fear, the supply has been replenished. Anyways, my darling little girl had her first pedicure, or as she calls it "pedicare". When she went to get fitted for her dance shoes the girls were amazed that she had already had a pedicure. Here are the results, feel free to tell me how cute my kid's toes are.... I hope this post does not attract any sickos. That would totally deflate my happiness balloon.

In my past life, I was a ......

Liar? Would that be a good word? Mike and I were discussing things at dinner last night. Such as, is dating 2 people at the same time wrong? My response: No, as long as there is no commitment and you are not sleeping with them.

This topic comes up because my sister is dating 2 guys, she just got out of a long term relationship and is not committed to either guy. Mike thinks this is wrong. I think it is fine, as long as she is not sleeping with them.

Anyways, this led to discussions of our relationship. Think way back, like over 7 years ago...... Mike and I talked online for a while before we met in person. We met one night and have been together ever since.

Here comes the interesting part. He asks if I ever dated anyone else after I met him. I say no and he says you are lying. I am a terrible liar. That much is a fact. I was not lying about what he asked specifically. I told him that I still talked to guys online. That was the part I felt slightly dishonest about. Out come the confessions at this point. He admits he still talked to girls online after we met, something he always vehemently denied. He says that was a long time ago, nothing we can do about it now, does it really matter now anyways?

All the grief I got over someone sending me "coded" pages, and now he says "does it really matter?". Ummm, yes. I think it does.

I am really just a pain in the ass and never like to drop the past.

How can you do that to your kid????

My sister came to visit this weekend. All was well, we had a great time and of course the kids adore her. She does have one flaw. She lives in Ashville. The first (and only) time I visited her, the city reminded me of Athens, Georgia. I mean so much so that if you were not thinking about it, you would think you were there. Anyways, we were discussing children in Ashville. Her friends children. Who attend schools like "Free to be me preschool". And have names like "Righteous Rhythm". Yep. Some butthead named their kid righteous rhythm. How the kids, I mean toddlers, have dreads and the little boys with long hair wear their hair in a bun.....

Now I am all for freedom of expression. I was a little punk rock freak back in the day and will wholeheartedly admit to it. I loved it. But to subject my kids to that? Maybe dye Ansley's hair blue and teach Joey to mosh..... Amusing right? I just do not get it. Maybe I am getting too old or something but I think these people are condemning their kids to a life of "I am stuck in a college town and can't get out" syndrome.

I will now get off of my little self righteous soap box.....

See that girl...

She is my little dancing queen.

My baby started tap and ballet lessons this afternoon. When we got there I had a huge knot in my stomach because the parents are not allowed in the studio, I knew I had to leave her and I did not want to. It hit me, my little girl is not a baby anymore. She looks like a big girl now, no more baby fat, not that she ever had much anyway. Okay, enough of the sniveling, I will get over it.

Things have been crazy as usual. I have been mean and moody. My parents are gone now and I don't like it. I still have the attitude of "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all". Which explains my blogging absence. So maybe I will have more to say later.
