what's that?

Conner: "Here mama." Holding out his hand for me.

Me: "Thanks Conner." It takes a few tries but finally he puts something in my hand. I look at it and turn it over and just can't figure out what the little white sticky thing is and where it came from.

Me: "What is it?"

Conner: "My buger!"

haha... ewww..... Kyle started cracking up which made me laugh, which made both boys start laughing like they were all in on the whole thing! Oh man, what is next?

oh Conner

This conversation just made me laugh for a long time and I still chuckle just thinking about it. I wanted to write it down so I wouldn't forget. 2 days ago Conner comes downstairs wearing nothing but his undies...

me: "Conner, where are your clothes?"

Conner: "I dunno mama, they just run away!"

hahaha!!!! I love hearing him talk more and more and the funny things he says!

a scoot across the floor

I think to any pregnant women, who has kids, a clean house is just a distant memory....

I am one of those people who likes to get everything done at once and then have the rest of the day to do whatever I want. That is next to impossible while pregnant. Even my doctor has told me I need to take breaks. Just clean one room at a time with a little break in between. But this drives me nuts! Mainly because while I am "breaking" the kids have already messed up the room that I just cleaned. And then you add in being only 5 weeks away from popping out a kid and that doesn't help. She is sitting so high compared to the boys. With Joshua mostly, my pelvic bone killed all the time! Even just to lift up a leg to put on my pants would sometimes bring tears to my eyes, but with her geesh! Get out of my ribs!!! Even at the last doc appointment I had the nurse was trying to find her heartbeat down low and on the sides. It wasn't until she tried right next to my ribs that she could find it. And the nurse was like, wow, she is up high. I know! And try bending over! It has to be one of the most uncomfortable things! I have mastered the pregnancy spreading of the legs to bend over so your belly fits in between them. When it comes to picking up toys/clothes/food/etc it is the worse. Thus I have reverted to the floor scoot.... yes, I scoot across the floor and pick everything up to avoid bending over. It is a little tricky in the bedrooms as those are carpeted. But the rest of the house has laminate wood floors so it is so easy to scoot. I pull a toy box along with me first and go all around, then through the dirty clothes in a pile for Conner to put in a basket and so forth till the floor is clean. The downside, is that I have found pop tart pieces stuck to my bum later on, but I will take that compared to bending over. I'm sure it looks so funny if you were to walk in, since I'm not just staying in one area, but scooting all over. But, you gotta do what you gotta do to get the job done. Plus, the bonus is since I'm not exerting to much energy I can get multiple rooms done at once instead of having to break all the time! Yeah! Hopefully in a few more weeks this little rib-sitter will be rocking in a swing and I won't have to scoot across the floor, but until then, my bum is giving the floor a nice cleaning...

You're starting to sound like a Mormon!

Kyle has made it through his first week and a half of school! Yeah! He seems to be really enjoying it. He gets along great with the kids. His 4th period class is a 50 min long class (like the others) but adds in 1/2hr for lunch and 1/2 for homeroom. He isn't allowed to teach during that time, so he gets to see those kids a big chunk of the day. Well, the other day during homeroom, somehow the kids got on the conversation of drinking. Kyle mentioned how he has never had a drink in his life. The kids had a hard time believing that. Then one of the kids says, "Senor Hercules, you don't drink or do drugs, man you are starting to sound like a Mormon!" hahaha... Kyle said, well now that you mention it, I am one. The same kid then says there is a Mormon who happens to be in one of Kyle's other classes. So, after class Kyle pulls the LDS kid aside and says, "I heard something about you. I hear you're a Mormon. *pause* what ward are you in?" The kid was so surprised and was like "are you Mormon too?!?!?" Anyway, I just thought it was so funny, I wanted to blog about it before I forgot. For an assignment Kyle was having the kids do, they had to write 5 sentences using a verb. One of the kids said Mr. Hercules is CALVO. (I don't know how to write the whole thing in Spanish, or I would have. I was helping input grades for Kyle as he was grading this paper and he didn't know what Calvo meant. I looked it up online and it means Bald!!! haha... this made me laugh for a long time. I thought it was pretty gutsy for a student to write in the first week of class! I think teaching will be full of interesting stories, just like being a mom!

We were invited to go swimming at a previous ward member house this morning. We had a fun time and they even had a huge backyard the kids were playing in with a swing set too. One of the other families there had a little 4 month old baby. Conner ran up to him and just stared at him for a straight 5 min. Then he turns around looks at me and says "look mama, a baby! Can we take him?" I said no and he says "please mama, can we take him?" I told him we will soon have our own baby at home and that his parents will miss him if we take him. Then he ran off and didn't look at the baby again. I hope this means he will be a great big brother! I'm sure he will be!
