Proud Mommy Moments 500

No I haven't had 500 Proud Mommy Moments, but wouldn't that be cool???  But that is what this meme is all about helping us to remember those proud moments especially when times are rough and we having the other (not so) proud moments.

First, I have to say I hate homework.  It's a battle.  It's exhausting.  It's times three with one kid and to the tenth power with three.  It's stressful with difficult schedules.  Our kids don't want to do it, and neither do we.  This is why I love that our school has  The kids can go on there and study at their own pace from home.   Well imagine my surprise when I got an email from them with a certificate to print for Ryan.

Holy cow!  500!  He loves math and science!  Way to go kid!

Why I Am Defending My Beliefs

Most, if not all of my Facebook friends share my view in politics.  I would venture a guess of about 50 to 60% of them sharing my religious views.  Some are friends in real life, some are blogging friends, some are family of course, and some I met through a forum that is now defunked, ka-put, DEAD! But a group of us managed to stay connected on FB.  Over the years, it has been fun to stay connected and share fun stories, jokes and laughter.  But since this election, it has become more and more challenging to maintain good feelings.

I do not care if you don't like who I am voting for.  Posting about him 35 times a day on your FB status is kind of extreme and definitely annoying.  I was happy to learn how to block someone out of my news feed.  It's a much happier place to visit now!  Thanks Emmy.  What bothers me, is when you tackle his religious choice.  Yes, I am for Romney/Ryan.  There, I said it.  But what gets my knickers in a wad, is when people start saying things that ar…

Random, Jokes, Changes

Do you get hungry whenever you watch a show/movie and the actors are eating?  I do.  I think Big Bang Theory is the worst for eating.  It seems that's all they ever do.  Bewitched it was drinking.  So I guess of the two evils, eating is the lesser.

We were telling corny Halloween jokes on the way home...joke like:  Why didn't the skeleton cross the road?  Because he didn't have the guts!  My two favorite jokes of the night:  What do you call candy corn?  Pumpkin Poop.

And the other one I laughed at was this:  How come you can fool vampires?  Because they are all suckers!

It's time for a change...a big one...a scary one.  I have been thinking about this for a long time.  And it is time.  
I am going back to school.  Online.  I am going to earn a Bachelor's Degree in English.  I want to ultimately get a Masters Degree.  But for now, a Bachelor's Degree.  I start next week.  I have no idea what to expect.  I do know that I will not be doing the Dancing with the S…

Trouble From the Start...

Seven years ago, and a day late...I will never let him live it down...our last addition to the family was born.  And I should have known he was trouble from the start...he peed on the doctor!
Then at age 15 months..this boy chipped his tooth!  He was playing on a Little Tykes riding toy...indoors cause it was probably snowing outside.  (We lived in VA at the time) And he flipped forward and chipped his front tooth.

When he was 18months old, he broke his nose.  I know I have a more pathetic picture of him some where.  The ER doc had the nerve to tell me he had no bone to break in his nose, and to NOT give this poor child baby motrin.  Upon seeing his pediatrician, I was told it was most definitely broken, and to please give him motrin.

When he was just a little over three years old, he fell into the duck pond.  It was such an event, that it was blogged about in three blogs.  Here's my version.

Oh but that's not wasn't much longer after that...that he learned abou…
