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…

Christmas 2016

I can honestly say that I miss blogging.  Facebook "memories" option has made me realize how nice it is to be able to look back at our family life and adventures.

I will (eventually) try and get caught up on the past few months, because we all know that I have photographed each and every moment, but for now I will start with Christmas.

We started shopping later than normal but managed to get everything done with time to spare to relax and enjoy the season.

Mummy came from England, I did not realize it but this is only her first Christmas with Amalia!  We spent the day with great family friends, Peter, Debbie and their family.  It has been a tradition for many years to do Christmas and/or Thanksgiving with them.

As per usual we had Santa Jeaux come and visit along with all the kids friends.  It was such a nice reunion not only with our friend Santa, but the kids miss their friends dearly it is always a great occasion to get them together again.  I appreciate all the other m…

Our Garden

I have promised the kids that once spring came around we can plant a garden since in our top back yard we have 2 big beds.
It was s a lot of work to clean out the beds it was full of debris that took us a long time to sift out, but it was oh so worth it!

I wish I had before and after pictures to show you just how bad it was, but I didn't think about it because I was in full on mission mode.

We still need to plant the second bed, it has been a bit rainy, and to be completely honest I am terrified of worms, caterpillars and snakes.

My community Facebook page has been posting about copperheads everywhere so I am hyper paranoid when I am out there, but I hope to get around to it soon!
