I haven’t posted anything in the past couple of days…so I thought I’d better get on it!
Last night Rebekkah’s family came over for dinner. It was great visiting with them. Hannah is getting so BIG and she is absolutely beautiful. Jace and my boys had fun playing outside. Gavin went home with the Paden’s last night. (Zander has school so he couldn’t) Rebekkah said he woke up in the middle of the night crying for me. This is his first slumber party without his big brother. Poor baby.
This morning Zander and I (and the twins) went to his school’s book fair…Moms & Muffins. It was nice having that special time with Zander at his school. We sat in the library had muffins and juice, then looked at all the books. He had his own money (from his train bank). He decided on “DC Super Friends.” It was so cute seeing him pay for his own book with all his own money…a baggy full of change…he’s been “reading” it all afternoon.

Today is the QT 50 YR Anniversary Party down at the river parks. We’re gonna take the kids. JFJO is playing at 5…I’m so stoked! It will be interesting to see how it all plays out…we have to take a shuttle to the river from the fairgrounds. With 4 kids that does not sound fun to me. We’ll see!

Well, today we were eating some bread with sesame seeds. He looked at them for a long time, then asked if he was going to have a baby in his tummy now. LOL!

Zander is in preK as you all know. Every night he has homework. Tonight he had to name 3 things that smell good & 3 things that smell bad.
- Pie (I don’t know where he’s been smelling pie…we all know I’m not baking any!)
- Dirty Diapers
- Smelly Feet
I’m so proud. The only bad smelling things I could get out of him were poop related. It took him nearly 20 min to think of smelly feet!

On the way home from the park we walk by this man who is letting his puppy out to pee. He lets the kids pet his dog. Zander asks if the puppy will get bigger. The man said “yes, about up to your belt.”
“NO…” Zander says, “I don’t have a belt.”
OH!! I almost forgot…at braums Zander is talking to this lady…out of no where he says he wants to get married and he just needs to find him a wife! At least he’s out of his death phase!
-If you have to breastfeed your twins (or singleton) in a restaurant always start with the side you write with. That way by the time your food comes you will have you “good” free hand to eat with or cut up your other children’s food.
-Always have distractions in your diaper bag for the older kids. Some times if I’m in public by myself with all four kids I have to have to attend to the babies. (Like nursing, burping, and changing diapers) A two and four year old can only be patient for so long. Have activities or special toys in your bag. For example a travel size echasketch, crackers, a play camera or phone…anything different then what they usually play with.

Everyday Zander cracks me up. I don’t know where he comes up with half the things he says. Today he was sitting up at the bar in our kitchen drinking his milk out of a coffee cup…telling me that e drinks his coffee black because he is a man…then he says “mom…Papa’s my life.” Trying not to smile I ask him what he means. He said “Well, I tried to find a lady to marry me, but no one will…so Papa will be my life.”
