Another Milestone Reached

Well as we enter a new month, (Feb 2011) we have entered a new milestone with Miss Chloee, we now have a moving baby.  She is not actually crawling but is pulling herself along the floor, carpet and hardwood.  She has the motion down and I am sure normal crawling won't be long but in the meantime, she is quite happy to be pulling herself all over the house.  New Challenges this brings, oh yes, already having Chase and Jett running around the house and dropping toys and nicks and nacs all over has Mommy running around picking things up like a maniac in fear that Chloee will get it.  With Chase, this wasn't an issue as he was the only one, no worries of toys form his older siblings, then Jett arrived and well it was a bit more of a challenge with Chase playing everywhere in the house but he was pretty good and keeping his toys away from Baby Jett, well now it is Jett's turn and he just happens to leave everything everywhere, making my days full.  Nothing new with Jett though!!!    I must give him credit though, when it is time to clean up, that kid will clean up and won't stop till it's done!!!  Hopefully he continues that way!

So now I have 3 children, doing their own thing, happy and healthy playing all around our home....every little inch!!!  How very lucky we are!!!!

Terrible Two's!!!

Well we have officially reached the Terrible 2's phase with Jett.  I am experiencing things with him that I never did with Chase.  At least I don't recall it happening, but maybe!!!  Jett enjoys having the battle of the wils with me.......on a regular occurrence now, upon Jett acting up he is told he will be going for a "Time Out" if he doesn't stop.....well....his response....."OK, Let's go", and away he heads to the stairs to assume the position, all this time laughing!!!  It just doesn't seem to phase this kid.  Once his timeout is over, we head back to what we were doing where most of the time he returns to doing what he got the time out for in the first place....It is a big game for him....and we just keep going around and around.

I have took to watching the Supernanny every chance I get now and take notes!  I have learned that it seems to be more effective taking things away from Jett that he enjoys...Hench..his milk.  He loves his milk and can't get enough each the milk goes bye bye.  Consistency is the key at this point I have slacking off with this one!!!!  Otherwise he will play me like a fiddle!    Any advise from fellow parents out there is welcome!!!!  Momma is tired!!!!  LOL!!! 

It amazes me that this sweet little face can be a little hellion when he chooses!!!!

Report in JK....A VERY Proud Mommy Moment!!!

To quote from Mrs. Roth, Chase's JK teacher...a little report sent home to us on Jan. 11, 2011.  Yep we are proud!!!!

"Hi!  Happy New Year!
Just wanted to let you know how well Chase is progressing.  Chase has been printing his name wonderfully....taking his time and staying left to right!  He is even reading some simple pattern books in small reading groups!!!  Continue to have him point under the words and use picture clues to ready!!!
Thanks, Mrs. Roth"

How awesome is this!!!  Mommy and Daddy are so very proud of you Chaseman!!!

Sick Kids...The Season of the Flu

Well one thing I was never told or never realized befor having kids was how sick a house could get from the germ bugs they bring in your home, and will continue all threw the season to be sick and continue to pass it on to each other over and over again. 

We have had so many colds in this house this year that I have seriously lost count of who has had what and for how long and what all the symptoms were.......It certainly is true, kids enter school and daycare and sickness comes along with it!  I have to say the mommy inside of me loves the extra cuddle time that I am banking up but it hurts my heart to watch my three kids uncomfortable from the flu or a cold of some sort. 

It seems I am forever washing hands, surfaces and faces, just trying to avoid these colds, but in the end, it really doesn't seem to matter as the colds reside in someone in the house.  I have never tried the flu shot......does anyone have any comments on it?  Would love to know what you think!    I can honestly say that this house is sick and tired of being sick and tired!!!!!    Any tips fellow Mom's?

Kiss it Better Mom!!!

Well today was a first, even for a Mom of three.  Jett had hurt himself....had a little tumble, nothing new for him.  We ask our kids alot, can we kiss it better when they get hurt.  So today after Jett had fallen off the bar stool (for the 100th time) he came to me upset, I said, Mommy kiss it better?  He said Yaaaaaaa and came to me, pulled his pants down to his bare bum and bent over for me to kiss his bum...better!!!!    Got love the way kids think!!!!  Jett just another story to add to the list and tell at your wedding some day!!!  Love you big fella!!!

Potty Training at it's Finest!!!

Well I have to say that I am soooo very impressed with the bigman Jett, he has taking over the potty training all on his own.  It simply amazes me how much they learn and how quickly they learn it!!!  Chase was 2.5 when he began to do the potty training (all on his own I must add) and now Jett, just over 2 years old has done the same....all on his own initiative!!!!  It is true, they only will do it when they are ready to, on their own little schedule.  I am soooo proud of you Jett!!!  Once Again!!!!
