When Questions Get Tricky.

Me, being the genius I am, decided that I am going to jam pack the boys summer with things to do.  I heard an interview once where a successful woman was asked how did she remain motivated (or something along the lines of that).  Her response was pretty cool to me, "Because when I was a kid my parents always had me involved in things so doing nothing doesn't feel right."  Since I want smart, caring successful boys I have tried to keep them moving.  Turns out it is I that cannot keep up with this as well as I thought I could (so much for my theory of having kids young so I have the energy to keep up with them).

Sunday was a scout event at the Gwinett Braves game.  Being the Super Mom I am I arrived well early to be there for the Q&A and the parade.  Game started at 2pm, I show up at 11:30am for a long hot 95 degree day in the sun. If you look carefully at the pics below you can see our misery.

We left the game early, just couldn't take the heat.  I of course fell asleep in the car along with the kids, John's a trooper. =)

So here comes Monday. Ahhh, I love the sound of Monday.  The day when the kids go back to camp and I can fold laundry while watching Netflix documentaries, peacefully tidy the house. WRONG.  That was not in store for me.  Instead I take Kaiden to ultra cool Camp All American.  Probably the coolest most TV like thing I have seen in this country.  Welcomed at the front doors by a full on band playing music.  Kaiden went swimming, rock climbing and played soccer.  SO here I am thinking, oh, he is SO going to bed early tonight.  I then did running around all day with John, then before you know it, it was time to pick up the boys again.  Took them to see their counsin since my Uncle, Aunt and cousin are in town.

Rush from there to go home to prep dinner, then out again to karate.

Rush home after karate, cook up some curry shrimp.
Now, at last, is time for a quiet candle lit hot bath.  When I come out its time to put the kids to bed at last.  I'm sitting on my bed Kaiden comes in snuggles up and we start talking. This is the part this blog is leading up to.  No way you think I could finish the evening peacefully, not off the hook yet.  Somehow we ended up having part1 of "The Talk".  I was freaking out in my head, but being calm and collected with Kaiden.  I am the type of parent that Thinks that every body part should be talked about the same, as well as every bodily function.  Most parents don't teach their children about sex, which I don't get, because if you aren't teaching them, who is?! Scary thought, I'd rather it come from me.  He was confused at why his is called a penis and girls have vaginas.  I just told him that it is what makes a boy a boy and a girl a girl because all our other parts have the same name such as an eye, and arm etc.  The conversation got very carried away but I taught him about being 12 and going through puberty, hair, sperm, pregnancy.  He kept saying, "I don't get it" and wanted more detail.  He was somewhat satisfied with, when you are married and you love a woman and you lay next to her, if you truly love her a baby will start to form and grow.  What next does he ask? "Does it hurt?" "No honey, it doesn't hurt, if you truly love her, it will feel good.  Does peeing feel good." Big smile, "Yes! Especially when you really have to go." "Exactly!!!!!!" Hahaha  Then he was ready for bed.  I love the innocence of children.  I love teaching my children.  I am happy that Kaiden gets to learn this from me.  I do not want him to be a sexually oppressed adult, or think that certain parts of their body carry shame.  I want them both to be healthy is all aspects of their lives.

Beautiful Baby Shower

This past weekend was our baby shower!!  We decided to do it a bit early because I am one of those over-organized, over-prepared types.  It was hosted by my best friend Kindle and my sister Bianca.

I told Kindle I wanted a slight winter wonderland pink theme since it is so close to Christmas and this is what I walked in to!
It was absolutely beautiful, and we were joined by all our best family and friends, we appreciate everyone that made this such a special day for us.

 This game was to guess how big I was and believe it or not the winner was Ethan!!
He definitely knows his Mummy!
 The chocolate diaper game. (It was Johns first shower, he must've thought we were all crazy).
 Getting ready for presents!! (The boys got to open them all).
 Kindle surprised the boys with a gift each.
It was a shirt with their picture saying "I'm the biggest Brother" and "I'm the big Brother" for the hospital.
Most thoughtful thing ever!!!
I wish I could relive this day over and ov…

Star Wars Birthday Party

It's that time of year for the boys double birthday party!!
Since I... I mean they are so into star wars that was the obvious choice of a party theme.

It was so cute at the end of the party after the boys opened all their gifts and John says, "Well, what did Mummy and I get you?"  They both shrugged.  I said, "We got you this beautiful party, and that is your gift."
They both hugged us and said thank you without even complaining that we didn't buy them anything, such gracious boys!
Then John brought out their bikes and they went crazy!! It was the cutest thing.

Happy Birthday to our wonderful boys, Happy 7th and 9th Birthday Ethan and Kaiden!

Welcoming Spring

Going from living in Jamaica where Spring is Sun and sand, to Georgia where spring is pollen, to Dubai where it is sun and sand to Illinois.
Let's just say I was not expecting a massive snow storm!
I have never experienced snow like this in my life!
Amazing what a difference 9am to noon can make!
This is how they do spring here it seems!

We had so much fun!
Lots of games with the kids, just dance 3, wii golf etc.

Of course John took the boys out to make a snowman and snowball fights and even gave them a big job to make a little money.
I don't know how they handle the cold so well, it truly amazes me how long they can stay out there and be completely okay.
I of course stayed inside, I do not like the cold, not one bit.  I do enjoy watching the snow from the windows though, it is so beautiful.
I even fell asleep on the carpet in front of the fireplace!

We did have a small mishap.  Kaiden decided he wanted to warm up his pillow pet and it melted on the glass on the fireplace!
