Conversations with Price

My morning conversation with Price went like this:

A- "Price, would you like to go to Leapin Lizards today to play with your friends."
P- (After looking at me rather funny) "Ummmmm..........Yes"

A few moments pass....

P- "Mama, I weady to go pway wif wizards"
A - "Well baby, we are going to go play with friends at Leapin Lizards, but there won't really be any Lizards there. Only bouncies so you can jump."
P- "Okay, I jump wif wizards"
A- "No, you'll only jump with your friends......No lizards!"

A few more moments pass....

P - "Mama, I want go see Daddy."
A - "You do? Where is Daddy at?"
P - "Daddy at Target."
A - "He is? What is he doing at Target?"
P - " Getting me wizards!"

Poor thing is going to be dissapointed when he finds out Daddy has no "Wizards" for him when he comes home......

Domesticated? I'm working on it!

I made my first dress!!

I finally did it and I am proud that it turned out so well. Yes, there are some unstraight seams and the side seam may be about 1/2 an inch off.... but I didn't expect my first one to turn out quite so well. Hopefully I'll only improve!! :)

Poor Thing!

Once upon a time, Owen never, ever cried.......Those days have past!!

One day I'll laugh.....

This week has been pretty busy for us. Owen has a new found freedom and wants to explore EVERYWHERE. He can get on all fours and move like and inchbug, he also gets around rather fast by using the army crawl. It's keeping me on my toes, for sure!! Between him and Price, my days are pretty busy. No more of Owen sleeping all day....

On Monday, Owen proved just how much I have to keep my eye on him. We had our playgroup at a friends house who's daughter has one of those felt storyboards. Owen was in his carseat for a little while when I first got there and then I took him out to feed him his bottle.
He wouldn't really drink his bottle, which is unusual, so I sat him down at my feet. A few minutes later he began projectile vomiting (at least 3 feet in front of him). I jumped down to see what was going on and he looked like he was having a seizure. Then this red thing (that looked like his tongue) was hanging out and my friend Jennifer started screaming, "His Tongue, What's wrong with his tongue?" I started panicing and told her to call 9-1-1!! Then it fell out and we all screamed together. Turns out, apparently he got a hold of a red peice of felt and swallowed it! (It was rather large, as tall as my palm and almost as wide) I guess him vomiting like that was his body's way of getting it out. Since it was red, it did appear much more organ-like than a peice of felt! Once we realized everything was okay we told 9-1-1 we did not need their services anymore and I called my doctor to make sure that everything was okay. I was worried he may have swallowed more then one but I think one was his limit.
Once we calmed down, we did get a good chuckle out of thinking he threw up his tongue!! But now I have to keep my eye on this little fellow cause EVERYTHING goes in his mouth!!!

Then Price had a sucker yesterday....That is his ultimate potty-prize! He loves them! While the sucker is in his mouth, he decides he needs to go potty. He just goes without asking me. I hear him in the bathroom and run to make sure things are okay. Apparently he dropped his sucker in the toilet while pee-peeing and I caught him leaning over with his hand in the bottom of the toilet trying to get the sucker so he could finish eating it!! I refused to reach in there and pull it out so I just flushed the toilet. Price screamed for his sucker while I scrubbed his hands clean!
If I had not heard him, he would have put that sucker straight in his mouth after being in the toilet!! I guess then it would have literally been a "potty prize"!! :) In Price's favorite words, "EWWWWWW..............YUUUCKYYY!"

Valentines Day!

What a great Valentines weekend! Josh and I had a FABULOUS Valentines Dinner on Friday night, after a 110 minute wait..... and P&O spent the night with Ome & Grandaddy. We don't get much time without the kids so it was so nice to enjoy some time alone!!

Josh is a WONDERFUL husband & father and I'm so glad he's my Valentine!

And in the spirit of Valentines Day, I'd like to show off Owen and his first little sweetie!!

This is Owen with Sara Grace! We went to visit our friend Kara and her new little boy, Cannon, last week and Owen and Sara Grace had fun together.

Here they are with sweet little Cannon!

And Kara giving little Owen some love!

Hope everyone had a great Valentines!

I think I am turning into one of “those” moms.….The ones I used to roll my eyes at….. The ones I said I’d never be…..

The ones that don’t think it’s appropriate for a 2 year old to drink caffeinated drinks.

The ones who don’t want their children watching too much television.

The ones that try to feed their children semi-healthy food and not give them too much high fructose corn syrup. (Price still gets his fair share of sugary goodness, so don’t roll your eyes!)

The ones that don’t let their children skip a night of brushing teeth.

The ones that stick to a “semi-strict” nap routine. (I mean, there are some exceptions, right???)
The ones who rarely let their child stay up past bedtime.

You know the ones…..

Now, don’t get me wrong……Max and Ruby babysit Price occasionally. I know that having that on the tv will allow me to get some things done around the house. I’m not particularly proud of that, seeing as how I think Max causes some of Price’s discipline problems. (See, one of those moms who blames the tv for their childs misbehaviour!) I mean, WHERE IN THE HECK are Max’s parents and WHY doesn’t he listen when he’s told NOT to do something??
It’s Prices very favorite show, but I’m starting to think that I shouldn’t let him watch it often.

And what about the Mama Llama books? “Llama, Llama Mad at Mama” is missing the part where Little Llama goes home and gets a big spanking for throwing all those groceries out of the shopping cart!!

It makes me wonder, Does Price think it’s okay not to obey because Max doesn’t? Does Price think it’s okay to throw tantrums because Little Llama does it??

Maybe that’s putting too much thought into things …..... maybe.......

I’m really pretty laid back about most things, but this being a mom thing is hard….
