Calgon Take Me....

AWAY.
Far, far away.
The baby won't stop screaming (she's sick), the house is a wreck, I have a stack of bills I haven't paid in like, a month...
I just told my middlest..."if you stick your fingers in your mouth again I'm going to chop them off"
nice Mama, huh?
He's FOUR years old, why is he still sucking and chewing on everything?  It's not like he was weaned too soon (15 months to be exact) or has been abused.  I'm tired of him always smelling like drool.

We just enjoyed a mini (very mini) Spring Break trip to the Valley of the Sun :)
It wasn't what I would call a vacay, since it was completely exhausting, still it was nice to warm up a little and see the boys play outside.  And the shopping, oh the glorious shopping :)
I will post a few pictures soon...

The real break that I've been dreaming of is a date with my hubs.  I would love to have one night and pretend like it's the old days, ya know?  We'd get dressed up, have a fancy dinner, go out dancing... just have a whole night just for each other... no interruptions.  I can't imagine anything more refreshing at this moment.

Happy Spring Everyone!!!

i find that the littlest (or maybe even the biggest!) breaks away from my kids remind me of just how very much i really do love them! we mommy's need to be reminded of such things every now and again.

hope you get a date night out soon. :)

Giggle, Giggle. This makes me laugh. Sorry. I know you were having a rough one and I'm sorry but the part about telling Soren you were going to chop his fingers off. :) Are you harkening back to your childhood? Complete with those words of wisdom given to us by our Mom's? You're crackin' me up girl. Date night? What's that? Seriously, some day we are going to be sitting on a beach somewhere sipping fruity drinks with umbrellas in them and laughing at how stressed we were. At least I hope. :)

I feel ya, sister! And I'm so glad you talked about the fingers in the mouth thing. Ruby will be 4 in August and we are having the worst time with that lately. She has her fingers/hands/random toys in her mouth all the time! And she drools ALL the time, especially when she's crying, which, let's be honest, is way too often lately. Let me know if you crack the code on this one. :)
