Bad morning...

I just have to whine a bit about my embarrassing morning. Brady had yet another meltdown at preschool. For those of you who do not know, Brady has been having issues with preschool lately. He does not want to go. We think it's because he doesn't want to use the bathroom at school. He is pretty much completely potty trained now---goes in the potty all of the time now, except for at night. He will not use the school bathroom, though! I tried something new, taking him inside and staying with him for a few minutes. I tried to take him in the bathroom to use it and wash his hands, thinking he wouldn't be afraid if I showed him it was fine. He just screamed and cried the whole time! It was really embarrassing! I feel so sorry for him that he is having trouble with this, but at the same time, I am so frustrated that he is acting so ridiculously! He has not been my sweet little boy lately. I don't know what is up with him!

So, on my way home, I stop by Starbucks for a coffee. As I'm ordering, I'm looking through my wallet for my card---which is not there! I had nothing, no card and not a single dollar! Somebody had been messing with my wallet again, the hubby or perhaps one of the boys! So, I tell the guy to cancel my order and he tells me not to worry about it! "We already started making it so we've got 'ya this time." Can you believe that?! I was so embarrassed! I told him I would be back later to pay...

On a side note, this is the lovely view of our back yard now...

Don't you just love it?! I think that building is seriously like 5 feet from our fence! There's a window, so I'm wondering if someone will be living up there. It seems like an infringement on our privacy to me! I mean, they will be able to see right into our windows! Wonder how they got that permitted?????

Last Day of Preschool/Program

May 21, 2009
Brady's last day of preschool was a short one, followed by the end of the year program. All of the family who could, came. It was so adorable! The theme was "Monkeying Around". They all entered to The Lion King's "Circle of Life" and sang all kinds of cute animal songs! Brady did such a great job! He was so cute up there singing and doing all of his motions---I laughed; I cried. It was awesome to see how far he had come! The begining of the year was full of tears, his and mine. He grew into such a big boy this year and I am so proud of him! His teachers sent home a sweet memory book filled with pictures from the year. Of course, I cried when I read that too! I was kinda far away from the stage, so unfortunately, the pictures didn't really turn out...

Easter 2009

We didn't get to do everything Mommy had planned, but it wasn't too bad. On Saturday, Brady went to a friend's birthday party and they had a pirate treasure "egg" hunt. We had a mini egg hunt at our house later that evening. Of course, it was cold...What kind of Oklahoma Easter would it be if it wasn't cold??? Poor Jack was sick too. Fun!

Brandon turned 30 this year. He was stoked! He decided he didn't want a big party or anything, so we had a small family gathering instead! I made him a yellow cake with fudge icing and we had dinner at his parents. YUM! I could go for some of that cake right now! Here are a few pictures...

Almost Back

Hi everyone! I've recently been inspired by some other busy mommies who have blogs. They do such a great job keeping up with their blogs. I figure if they can do it I can do it too! So anyway, I'm working on a new look for my blog and I've got some other ideas in the making. Hint: it has something to do with my favorite site on the internet! I also have SO MUCH to write about: this past spring and summer, the birth of my daughter, my hubby's new schedule, and of course, all of the crazy things that go on daily around this household! I'll be back soon, so check back frequently! (This post is dedicated to Mom and Kasey who are sometimes bored at work and need something to read!!! Love you!)
