Happy Birthday Baby!

Today you turn 35! Wow - were did the years go? When we met, you were the ripe old age of 22 (I was 19!) and it seems just like yesterday! I have so enjoyed spending the last 13 birthdays with you (lots of BBQ's with your parents, camping, enjoying a brand new baby) and look forward to so many more. You are the greatest husband and father. Thank you for being so caring, helpful, compassionate and thoughful!
Hope you have a wonderful day (sorry you had to get up at 3am!) and know how much we love you!!!

So, my kids have picked up a great trait from their Uncle Jordan - lying! (You know I love you little brother!!) Zoe isn't very good because she chooses to lie about the dumbest things and half the time tells you the truth then back tracks. Example:

Me: Zoe, why did you hit your sister with that toy?
Zoe: Well, I didn't mean to do it.
M: But I saw you hit her and it was because she wouldn't move out of your way.
Z: I didn't hit her! She hit herself with the toy!
M: So, I didn't see you hit her?
Z: No, I didn't do it!
This usually ends with a time-out where Zoe is freaking out the whole time, holding onto the idea that she didn't really hit her sister - even though Teagan is crying with a red mark on her face and I saw the whole thing.

Teagan takes a different approach - she just blames everything on Zoe! We came home on Monday after a weekend out of town. I was putting stuff away in the girls bathroom and kept getting this scent of pee - like it had been there for a day or two. Mind you, I cleaned the bathroom on Friday and we left the house on Saturday and we hadn't had any little boys over to visit. So, I start looking around the toilet and realize as I look over the edge of the tub, that someone had peed in the bathtub! It was on the inside of the tub and dried around the drain - GROSS! I come into the living room and ask,

M: Who peed in the tub?
Z: Not me - Teagan did it. (Totally what I figured)
T: (Pausing for a moment) Nuh-uh - Zoe did it.
This goes back and forth a few times until I say,
M: Well, if nobody will admit to it, you are both in trouble.
Zoe starts crying (which I knew would happen!) and Teagan just sits there with a very guilty look on her face.
M: If nobody did it, how did it get into the bathtub?
T: Mommy, it just came that way!

It was all I could do to not burst out laughing - but she still had to help me clean the bathtub!

Happy Birthday Teagan!

Happy Birthday Teagan Macie!!

So, it was actually yesterday but this is the first chance I've had to blog anything! We had a great weekend filled with family, a parade, a new slide and lots of fun!

I am having a hard time realizing that my "baby" is 3! It goes by so fast and she is such a joy to have around. She has a great sense of humor and wants to grow up faster than she is - she asked the other day when she got to go to Zoe's new school (heck, lets just skip pre-school and move on to kindergarten!!) She is working on writing her name and so far, we have the "T" down, though it is sometimes written upside-down! She adores Zoe and follows her lead all the time. Right now, Zoe has figured out that Teagan will do almost anything she asks which makes my job just a bit harder. Teagan thinks that she can talk to the baby through my belly-button and is constantly pulling up my shirt and telling Baby how much she love them!

Happy Birthday Teagan - you make our lives so much fun and it is a joy being your mommy! Continue to be adventurous and not afraid and don't forget you "broccoli" shoes!

Funny Ha-Ha

The other day, while driving with the kids, Zoe was practicing snapping her fingers. Here is the conversation I hear:

T: What are you doing Zoe?
Z: I'm snapping.
T: Oh, I can do that.
Z: ummm, no, you can't.
T: Yes I can, I'm just not doing it right now.


Last week, while putting laundry away in the girls room, they gather a few things and prepared to leave the room.
Z: Mom, we are playing that we are going to spend the night in a hotel.
Me: Sounds fun.
As they are walking out the door, this is what Teagan adds -
T: Oh, she's alright to be at my house (their room) when we leave. She is just cleaning it for me.
