…and You're a monkey!

those crazy kids

Ship Ahoy Matey!!

Jacob’s recruiter just asked him if he would be willing to leave for boot camp more then one month early.  If things work out he will be leaving for the Navy in just 5 instead of 45 days.  I have not shed one tear over his decision to join the military.  I think it is a wonderful idea…but when faced with the possibility that he could be leaving in less then a week I lose my breath and my heart starts to flutter.

Home Alone?? I wish.

Seriously?  You would think that the 18 year old could leave the 6 and 3 year olds alone.

If one more person says to me “I’m hungry” I am going to scream.  The only one of the three that seems to be able to get his own snack is the one that I do not want in the fridge.

I was so looking forward to hubby coming home from work at 2 – maybe a little late lunch with just the two of us….but NOOOOOO Sharon had to puke last night.

Just another day of motherhood I guess.

And don’t you forget it…

I can’t ignore Jacob.  I have to tell my favorite story from when he was younger.

Jacob was around 8 or 9.  He really wanted to go to the batting cages but it was raining and late, I just wanted to get home.  Jacob crossed his arms across his chest and declaired me the “GOD OF NO FUN”.  I slammed on the breaks, swerved the truck to the shoulder, turned to Jacob, whose eyes were the size of baseballs by this time, I pointed my finger in his terror filled face and said:  “I am a girl, that makes me the GODDESS OF NO FUN, and don’t you forget it”  I then put the truck back in first gear and pulled away.  About 2 minutes later I had to pull over again because we were both laughing so hard I couldn’t see to drive.
