These past few days have been jammed packed with activities I feel like I am spinning. I want to get the recap of what we have done then I will talk about some other things. Friday night was the movie on the big screen at the church two blocks away. We walked with our neighbors and had a great time but we didn't get home until 10:30pm. Saturday morning I ran around the house doing last minute prep for Monkey's party. We left for our small group pool party/potluck lunch we got there at noon and left at 4pm. Ran home and grabbed the rest of the stuff for Monkey's party and went to the school to set it up. It was a good stress free party. The park was great entertainment for the kids! Then we got home and Grandpa K and 4 of my brothers came over Monkey opened his presents and then they headed out to see another one of my brothers they left at 9:30pm and then it was to bed for everyone. He got some really cool presents but I am too tired to list them all. Sunday we got up for church and did the normal Sunday thing. J left for work and the kids and I got out the water guns and water balloons and they had a water fight. It was a lot of fun especially for me at the end because I hosed them off before going into the house! The joys of being the mom...you get the soul use of the HOSE :) Then we met J for dinner and walked around a festival next to the restaurant, there was a live band and some rides but we didn't ride anything I had no money. Then we went to a park where a different band was playing and I got to listen to the music while the kids played at the park it worked out good then it was home for some lightning bug catching! Fun filled days of summer. But with everything that we have been doing the house was suffering a little so today was my cleaning day so the older two are playing the new playstation 2 and game Monkey just got.
So those are the highlights of our days but I just want to say how amazed I am at how disrespectful kids are, at the party Saturday we were on private property and this group of about 6 kids started coming into the gated play area. Shocked and realizing that they should not be there I said, "You guys can't be here." Then they proceeded to argue with me about how they were just going to play ball. Then J stepped in and they started to argue with him but of course he won and they left. I was just floored at the fact that these kids would argue with adults so disrespectful I would hate to be their parents.
Red has started this new thing that when ever I say anything to him he answers with "What?" For a while I was repeating myself thinking he must not of heard me then I realized it is because when I don't understand him I say "what". I have taught him to respond with the word what. He is talking so much lately but some of the words I just can't make out and that is when I say what or ask him to repeat it. I bet he is just as frustrated as I was at having to repeat but I really want to know what he is saying, if I didn't care I wouldn't have him repeat it.
The last thing is I think I have hit the stage of my pregnancy that I dislike the most, the irritated and annoyed at everything stage. The things people say and do that would normally just roll off my back are driving me nuts. Please pray for me to get through this stage in tack with my emotions.
