Formidable Fours?

Oh lordie be! The past 2 nights James has been in bed before 7pm. He never really dabbled in the "NO!" stage when most kids do around age 2. Oh my word, he is now. He is finally telling us "NO!" at everything. It is exhausting! He had 7 timeouts yesterday. 7. He also went to bed without books for both nights because of the NO drama....I really hope age 4 is not like this the whole year!

Both kids are semi-sick...I say that because their colds are almost gone. Ugh, we have had them for over a week. We leave this weekend for our trip and I hope they are both better. A lot of time, energy, and money went into this first real vacation for our family. We travel a lot to see family, but this is really our first, long, only us type vacay. We cannot wait. I hope both kids have a great time and we hear fewer "No!'s" haha....

Spartacus: Blood and Sand...hmmm we just started watching it because we like all things Rome and history...but I can't even begin to describe it. Do not watch it EVER if there is a child of ANY age in the room. No baby, toddler, preschooler, adolescent, tween, teen or even college kid should see this! GRAPHIC...I love the historical aspect, and the storylines but I cannot wrap my mind around the nudity (EVERYTHING) and language...Does anyone else watch this? We just started but I don't know if I will continue, I really love the storyline though....gladiators, slaves set free, royalty, honor...but the blatant EVERYTHING is harsh.

Kell on Earth, totally cool. I am dvr'ing that tonight...My slow mornings of feeding the kids in my jammies and thinking about our day is SOOOOOO opposite of this crazy woman. And for the record I watch crap tv, in case you haven't noticed. I seriously watch things that could not be farther from my own life. Real housewives...yup, like it. I like those types of shows because maybe, hmmm....I get to see how people so different from me live.

My very favorite show however, is The Duggars. Isn't that funny? I bet the walls would melt in that house if Spartacus were on! My views are definitely more Duggarish than anything else so that is where my heart is....Pardon me Michelle and Jim Bob, J, J, J, J, J, J, J, J, J, J, J, J ...JJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJJ...I am going to watch Spartacus now.


  1. Oh come on, you can't put a pic of him looking so adorable and innocent on a post about how he's... not! Unfair!

    I miss.

    And I know I'm uncool for not liking sushi. I used to before I got preggers with Jack, and for some reason I never enjoyed it afterward. I don't HATE it, but I just don't get very excited about it. And even when I DID like it, octopus was NOT on my list of things I ate... Apparently it's not got even a hint of fishy taste to it and has a gooey/gummy texture but I could never get past the way it LOOKS. Blech.

    When Jolee (who is mini Jack/Jordan) or another one of your kiddos grows up to be a picky eater (because you will get cursed with one, Mrs. Amber Duggar)I will be there to help you out. I'll send you my octopus recipes, I promise!

  2. Oh Jolee is so going to only eat one random thing I am sure. She will only want watermelon or something crazy! I am feeding her royal fatness all kinds of veggies and so far she will eat anything. I may have to never introduce her to nuggets though! It's all downhill after a nugget ;)

  3. Melis, he ran her into a wall after that (in the picture)
