(Almost) 4-yr-old For Sale...

Brenden... OY, Brenden!! Love the kid to death, and realize in the grand scheme he really isn't all that bad, but there are days... Like yesterday... He was doing pretty well when he woke up. I found out that if you sound a word out for him he can pretty much spell it! (TY, LMax!!) Then he started in... getting cheese sticks out of the fridge without asking, getting mad when I asked him to put away the grapes he and his sister had been eating, not helping at all with cleaning his room unless I yelled about 4 times and swatted his butt, getting milk out and "making" chocolate milk for himself and Micaila... and the list goes on - in short he wouldn't listen to a word I said. Like Isaid- I know most of this is typical boy stuff, but I had a SERIOUS tension headache from yelling at him by 1:30pm!! It was so bad I had trouble keeping my eyes open... Oh! And, in the middle of it Micaila would start doing the same thing to get some attention... GRRRRRR!

If you didn't see the post below we got the call last night that Mike's grandfather passed away. We're now waiting on arrangement details to figure out who's going and when as it means time off work, and a long drive...

My shoulders look like a lizard who's outgrown its skin... Having owned an iguana for the better part of a year I can say that with some accuracy! LOL I'm still rubbing aloe gel into them at least twice a day.

I've apparently found my mojo again... I've created 5 LOs and 3 templates in the last 24 hours! I've been surfing some paper scrapping magazines and blogs/websites, and creating sketches from LOs I like. I then turn them into templates, and create my LOs! Please excuse the repitition you may sense in the following LOs... Dad's been sending me a few pics each day, and I've been playing with all the new photos of Jaylin!

I'm sooo sorry to hear about Mike's grandfather. How awful. I hope that you all have a safe trip, once you find out all the deails.

Ugh...I TOTALLY feel for you with your troubles with Brenden. It must be a phase of some sort because Brooke has been going through something similar and it is driving me nuts! I hope he gets better soon. It's great to see your mojo back! :) Your LO's are beautiful. Oh and I hope your sunburn heals up quickly. The after shedding LMAO is no fun. YUCK! LOL
