All About Oreos!

Well Mother's Day was a pretty good one! It started out kind of crappy because Bryan had to work with getting ready to head out for training here soon to NTC. We thought it was going to be a short day but he wound up working all day so I was a bit bummed that not only did I spend it alone with out him but I didn't go home to even get to see my mother because we thought he'd be home fairly early.

I finally got tired of sitting around the house stuffing my face with chocolate and watching lifetime and figured what better idea then to take the kids to Chucky Cheese to have fun on Mother's Day and relax while they ran around with their smiling little faces! And of course I figured it'd be the one place NOT packed and sure enough it was so peaceful in there! haha

Then Bryan got off while I was there and surprised me by leaving a big thing of flowers and some new flip flops in the car waiting for me for when I came out to the car after we got done! I heart my flip flops!

It's been an interesting week so far this week. We are all ready for a summer break around here for sure!

We've done a lot of new things over the last week. My youngest son who is in prek has been working on learning about money, simple addition and subtracting and learning to read. Things he wasn't doing when I pulled them out of school just yet but has caught on very quickly and showed a huge interest in it so we are making a go with it! I thought I'd introduce it to see how interested he was and shocked when he took off with the sight cards I introduced to him and has even started reading some beginner readers!

My other son has been working more on telling time like they were in school as well as introducing working on nouns, correction punctuation, and reading some longer books with chapters in them!

Since we are headed back home for a month during my husbands training we have been trying to do a little more fun stuff around here that we won't get to do once we move and enjoy some time with daddy! So last night we took a trip to Putt Putt! I couldn't remember why we didn't make more trips there when the kids asked several times as we passed "When are we going to go there again" till I spent as much as I did and realized just why we didn't go there that much! If we had just played golf it wouldn't have been to bad but since we won't be back I figured we'd go ahead and hit up the batting cages, play in the arcade some and let them each pick a ride to do. We had a lot of fun though!

My daughter Peyton had her 4 month old check up (she's 5 months now) yesterday as well and I was surprised she did so well. She was doing really good so we decided to go ahead and make a family out ting since my husband got off really early in the afternoon and she did wonderful till around bedtime then it hit her and she was miserable! We didn't give her any Tylenol with the recent recall because I didn't think to get the off brand! After a friend suggested that my husband went out and got some for her last night and she was much better after that! She just needed something to nip the pain to sleep for the night but was fine after that dose.

She was 10lbs and 14oz and almost 25 inches long! She got 3 shots and thankfully I caught the 4th one. We do selective vaccinating and my husband had taken her in last time because I didn't feel well and said something about how she didn't like the "oral" shot they gave her and I'm like "ORAL SHOT?!" it wasn't on the list of what they were going to give her and he signed for it but I had no idea they were going to do it to tell him NOT to do it! I didn't get it with the other kids and don't personally want it and was very aggravated when I found out. Not at him but that they just assumed we'd want it and put it on the list to sign for rather than saying "Would you like this one" since it's an optional vaccine and then he would've asked me. So I declined it and she was like "she got it last time" "yes I know she got it last time and we got in an argument after the appointment thank you!" then she was like "Well would you like to read more on it before making your choice" "No, we don't get that vaccine but thanks" there's nothing I hate more then when they proceed to go on and on like the one nurse who tells me "And you want to get that vaccine" don't tell me what I "WANT" to get my child! UHG.. I know they are being helpful and they want to tell you the benefits they are taught but it's like drop it once I've made it a point that I'm not interested!

Anyways enough of the vaccine drama. Nothing I can do about the fact she's had one dose of it now so I might as well get over it!

On to the better more YUMMY stuff that I made for desert!
