Okay so it has been a while. Everyday (okay not every day) I try to think of something cool that I could blog about and during the course of my brainstorming I have come to the realization that my life really isn't that exciting...that being said, read on at your own risk...
My kids have all been taking runs getting sick and we have had many trips to the Urgent Care because they seem to be incapable of getting sick during regular business hours. So $35, $35, $35, $15, $15, $17 later (copays and drugs) we are all on appropriate drugs and well on our way to healthy life. Macy will be out of school soon so it will be nice to be rid of those foreign germs and focis on our own germs. I do have to say that there are some of my kids that become very kind and mild mannered when their temperatures rise and so I will miss that bit...this may sound horrible to you but if it does, you don't have enough kids yet and if you do--you are smiling in agreement! For instance, this is a pic of Collin putting Emily down for a nap when they were both sick...he actually rubbed her back for a full 30 seconds without smacking her back...I was in awe and almost couldn't find the camera because I was afraid to look away, afraid it was a moment that wasn't real!!
I love my Evan Almighty! Look at those rolls...I just love it!! It is good that he is sturdy, I am so used to having tiny little babies that seem so fragile and frail. It is nice to have a little chunker! I always have people tell me how cute and "round" he is...I think they may be referring to his round head...it is a very round head. They also, thinking that it is my first baby (haha) give me a lot of advice about his size which I think is very strange...he's not like freakishly big, just chubby and cute. I get a lot of advice when I just have one of my kids with me, actually more than I ever did when I really did just have one. When we had Evan and were in the hospital we were given the "suggestion" to go to the discharge class that teaches you what to expect when you get home...we didn't go and we were a little confused as to why we were invited. Then after the class the nurse came in (acting kind of snooty I might add) and asked us why we didn't attend the class and we politely told her that since this was our fourth--and we had just had another baby last year, we didn't really feel like we needed too. Then she felt really stupid and mumbled something about us teaching the class giggled a little and bashfully left the room. I am guessing she was embarrassed. I think that if I wasn't me I would think the same thing though...sometimes I wake up and wonder how it is that I have four kids when I am still 19 years old up at Ricks living with the gals of The Riv 14--party at The Riv--he-ay! I hope you enjoy the ramblings of me--
Oh and we have BIG NEWS--huge news really! Tait has passed (with flying colors) the CPA exam!! (equivalent to Bar exam for Lawyers) Woo hoo! No more studying, no more books, no more teachers dirty looks!! It is nice to have him not have to study at night--now we can both sit on our bums and watch TV, instead of me doing it alone! No but really I am very proud of him, he worked really hard trying to be a daddy, husband, full time accountant, and a student at the same time. He gave up a lot of Tait time and it is nice to see him be able to go play b-ball and run again! The burden has been lifted--I have no picture of this, in your mind picture Tait with a very pleasant look his face (like you just ate a really good bite of ice cream) looking up at the sky with his arms outstretched spinning in circles and gigling like a drunken sailor--that will pretty much sum it up for you!
