Days like these ..

Today was one of those wonderful days where the boys got along with each other and instead of hearing the brotherly bickering I had the pleasure of listening to their giggles. We are having our Fall Break this week so the boys were school free. They played video games and with their WWE men.

This evening before bed we even had a brownie and milk as a special snack. Tomorrow I am heading to SAMS to get some cookie mix. Gabs just loves to bake. I truly believe he is going to be a Chef or Baker one day. He says he wants to be the Cake Boss when he grows up. He reminds me of my Daddy and how he loved to cook.

Speaking of Dad ... boy how I miss him. It has been 9 months since he has been gone. I don't think it will get easier. There are days when the boys talk about him and how much they miss him. I believe those days are harder to bear because I know they feel the loss and pain that I do. Sometimes at night out of the blue I will get a memory and start to cry. He was my hero and confidant. My best friend. I guess you could say growing up I was the typical Daddy's little girl. I could pretty much get away with everything and had him wrapped around my pinky. Kind of like how my boys have me.

Right now I am watching the Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood. It is actually a really cute movie. After this I should be getting to bed though. Poor Gabs has been restless this last hour. Thank goodness he has not woke up and stayed up!

The Quest ...

So I am spending my afternoon on a quest of sorts. I am looking for a place where I can get ACE workbooks for a fairly reasonable price. I hope to find something soon because I need to reorder books for Nicholas.
I have found one place so I may try them out and go from there. I am also looking for a great computer Math game for Nic to help him in his studies. I remember playing one as a child but for the sake of me I cannot remember what it was called. UGH don't you just hate those brain freeze moments. I am open to all recommendations on this subject. He is in 4th-5th grade math. As a child I despised Math as well so I know how he feels. I want something that will be fun but educational as well.
Oh well I am off to hunt some more!

And she said boys were easier ..

I remember the day I had my ultrasound with Gavin Jon. You know that "special" one where you find out if the baby is a boy or a girl. As soon as the Tech said you are having another boy my Mom pipes up with "Boys are easier to raise."
Now I wonder just how true that is. Nic is pretty quiet and will do his own thing but, with Gavin Jon in the mix wow! Gabs is very high energy and loud. So the two of them can clash at times. When that happens .. it can be like WW3! Yelling and screaming. Then of course comes the pushing, shoving and hitting. By that time I feel like a ref for the WWE.
So with that said are boys really easier to raise then girls? I am beginning to think not. That is okay though I wouldn't have it any other way. Even though my guys may be a little rambunctious and loud they are mine. I love their silly quirks and bubbley giggles. And even though I do enjoy my quiet Mommy time at night I cannot wait until morning to hear all of the I love you's and watch me Mom!

A Year Gone By

Wow I cannot believe it has been a year since my last post. My new goal for myself however is to blog once a day. Even the smallest post counts right. With that being said ... Welcome to my new blog!
