Ha Ha Ha Ha – Springing along…I’m such a “gork” (Kennedy word for Geek and Dork all mixed together) sometimes.Â Forgive me….just blame it on sleep depravation….I’m gonna go on and on and on about the sleep depravation again so I know you’ll want to keep reading won’t you..
NOT!Â Just joking!Â Hey, did I lose some of you?Â Did you think I was serious?Â I guess I’ve complained about it so much and it’s kind of too fresh to be joked about, hey????….sorry about that.
Nope, not gonna talk about it at all.
Instead……don’t you wish you had a little boy that was a cute as this little guy is……..couldn’t you just “eat him up”?Â
He is almost ALWAYS this happy.Â It’s very rare that he’s not smiling and even rarer that he’s crying.Â I just LOVE him so much.Topic Change……Â
I also dyed my hair using a natural hair dye.Â It’s called Herbatint and it’s amazing.Â It is more expensive than just buying a color from the store.Â It was just under $30 for the box, but I was pleasantly amazed at how it didn’t smell like I was frying my hair or burning brain cells from the fumes.Â We’ve been trying to rid our house of the Detergant SLS because it’s been linked to eczema and Josiah does typically have a flare up when he comes in contact with it…..and it’s in EVERYTHING, and it a known irritant……if that’s the case, then why put it in all the freakin’ baby soaps……it’s ridiculous.Â Anyway, this dye doesn’t have SLS and it works so far.
Anyway – I went Black…it seems that if I go really dark, that by the time the dye lightens and wears off slightly that it’s pretty close to my natural color…..which is a nasty sorta mousy brown color……enough about that…..here’s me.Â Excuse the frizzies…I’d do a re-take, but I just don’t care that much – you can see the color and realize thatÂ I don’t have perfect hair, and that I really dont’ care……get a little chuckle outta the “halo”….yah, that’s it…..it’s my halo…I’m an angel…ha ha ha!
In other news….my kids are playing SOOOOOO Nicely
most of the time
and here’s a shot to prove it…..I’m not gonna tell you how we staged this shot just so you’d think that we were such a nice family who calmly and quietly plays games together….’cause we didn’t and even if we did….I wouldn’t tell you about it….I’d just go on about my business and be all cool about it….now that I’ve blathered on and on – you have no idea whether I’m telling the truth or not, so just enjoy this pic of the 3 older darlings playing nicely together….as this is a rare treat.
Nothing like a sweet game of pick-up sticks.
Now, for some really amazing news…..you should see Josiah crawling…okay…it’s a bit weird, and none of my other kids did this…….He Army Crawls.Â It’s darling, but strange…just get up on your hands and knees already, son!
Isn’t he just DARLING?Â See, flat on his stomach…..weird.And here he is coming to get you….
Regardless of how strange his little crawl is…..HE IS FREAKIN’ FAST.And so now…….
This is the view coming up our stairs.Â Yup.Â We are now officially gated, and it makes life WAY easier ’cause I can just put him down and let him go….mind you with 3 older kids…there is a whole lotta
yelling and screaming
gently reminding to “please remember to shut the gate EVERY SINGLE FREAKIN’ time you come in or out
” ’cause I’m nice like that.Â I’m also into the “vaccumming the carpets 40 times a day” stageÂ because apparently my older children areÂ SLOBS and the baby is “exploring” everying by putting every little piece of anything and everythingÂ into his mouth.Â It’s so much fun.
Today is Day 3 ofÂ SpringÂ Break but it’s also Wacky Wednesday.Â Named because……beacause……well, becauseÂ both words start with a W…..We decided that it’s hard for Jon to beÂ workingÂ from home and for the kids to not understand how come he’s around but not available….sooooooo…….he’s working Mon and Tues and Thur and Fri from 7am to 5pm and we are tkaing Weds off.Â It’s nice that we can do this.Â One of the perks of working for your self at home, but it’s also a Loooooooog day when you’re working for 10 hours straight.Â So far so good and we’re headed off to see a movie with the kids today.Â
I think we’re going to see “Horton hears a Who”.Â It should be fun, and then we’re going to have dinner with my parents. So, a nice day that’s not too crazy busy, but fun none the less…..Â How’s your Spring Break coming along?Â if you have one?Â
