Not a whole lot going on here at our house lately. I have vowed to scrapbook at least 10 pages a week for the year- so hopefully 600 pages by the end of the year- and so far so good. I am adding a few of the pages. I am hoping to get caught up on the kids.
Jen has been working- still loving her job. Bryce has been dating the same girl for going on 2 months now! Must be serious.
Toby is still liking the same girl too since before Christmas. Trey is going to play basketball- have not had a child in basketball for years. Dylan got an x-box for Christmas so he plays that all the time- and Taya is- well... Taya. Busy and funny.
I am not a believer in vitamins at all- think they are a waste of money- have taken them from Walmart over the years but never noticed anything. For some reason I decided to take them from the health food store- you know the kid that smell horrid and you burp vitamin dust for hours afterwards? I take 6 a day- that is a freaking lot of pills! Well since taking them, knock on wood, I have not had one of my episodes. Is it possible that I was lacking something that was making me so sick? I am anemic all the time- need iron infusions- and these vitamins have a natural source of iron from beet juice or something. I am hoping and praying that this is the cure I need- still not a huge believer in vitamins- but I am not changing anything for fer I will have an episode.
How can you make your blog into a book to have published- like a digital scrapbook? Does anyone know. I was thinking of doing this every year to preserve memories because when the kids finally leave me- they will take their scrapbooks with them and I will be childless and pictureless...sniff sniff.
So I figure it is time for a post about Bryce! He will be 16 in April. He is a good kid most of the time. Although he does not apply himself at school, and I worry about what he will do to support himself as an adult... I was alot more work for my parents- did bad things, snuck out of the house, and oh so much more.
Here are my latest issues. I found Snus in his room over Christmas break- for those of you like myself that do not know what this is- it is chewing tobacco in little packets that you suck on. I also found a can of chew. So I kept digging. I know some of you would not agree with this- and say I have no right to look on his room- but I figure I need to be an informed parent- so I kept looking! I also found a box of condoms- all three were still there- but he had them just the same.
Now I was calm and I talked to him about these things- he said he has done some experimenting with chew but did not really like it and that the cans were expired if I looked closely at them- this was true. Then I bit the bullet and asked about the condoms- he said he bought them- he has a little girlfriend. So I said he must be thinking about sex- he said he was a teenager that is all he thinks about- I did not laugh!
I really struggled with this- I do not want to condone sex at all- but at 15 I was doing it- so am I a hypocrite to not want him to do it? I should be glad he thought about protection, right?- but I don't want him to do it at all. So I prayed about it- and I came to the conclusion that it is not my decision to make when he has sex. I got to make my decision- now he needs to make his. But do not get my wrong- I will limit every opportunity I can for him to be in a situation to have to make this decision! :)
So the teen years have hit- his girlfriend posts disturbing things on Facebook indicating she is still interested in other boys- I just try to open Bryce's mind to what is going on- but who knows how much gets in. I just hate when he gets hurt by girls- we are so cruel!
On a side note I am attaching pictures of Bryce's ingrown toenail that he just had cut out for a third time. This time he was not quit numb and he almost passed out from the pain- he went white and they had to get him some juice- it was horrible. I just want him to be little again so I can protect him from this hurt and pain in the big wide world! The scary thing is- I still have 4 more kids to go! Owwwwww!!!!!!
I have some dog porn....I recorded Lilo giving birth to a puppy- keep in mind that I was filming, and helping, and no one was helping me- so it is a little crazy at times- but you can see me break the sac off the puppy's face so it won't drown in it's fluids.
I am not a big fan of Barbie- I think she is weird- but Jen and I got Taya a Bratz doll on Black Friday. Here she is- Taya named her "Charlie"
So I was playing with Charlie and trying to adjust her top because her boobs were coming out and I thought she might be cold- when I took off her boots- I remember as a child that I thought Barbie's shoes were cool- and Charlie had these cool boots on- so I pulled one off and low and behold this is what I found:
OK I was a little disturbed that Charlie's feet stay in the boots- anyone else think this is weird?
So 2010 has started off with a bang at our house- on New Years Day we delivered 8 beautiful puppies, then today 8 more and I have another female that will deliver tonight or tomorrow- crazy I know. We have never had 3 litters at once before- one time I had 5 females in heat at the same time and I was so worried they would all breed that I managed to not get any of them pregnant- so now we just go with it and hope for the best. We have never not found a good home for our puppies- and about 14 are already sold- so I am not worried, not to mention they are sure fun!
Taya is in a dressing herself phase so I am attaching some pictures of her crazy outfits. She is also dancing all of the time- it is so funny to see her come out of her shy little shell. She is going to add Jazz class to her ballet and tap lessons this week.
Today she wanted us to call Grandma and she asked Grandma if she could come over- of course Grandma said yes- so she dressed herself and demanded we take her "Right Now" then Trey asked if he could go see Grandma and she told him to get his own Grandma. This child is a killer.
Last is steak pie that I made for dinner the other night- it is my favorite and so I wanted to take a picture.
I hope everyone is enjoying their break with the kids. 3 more days until school starts again.
