Eden drew this yesterday.

Should I be worried?

Maybe I should talk to Jim about letting the kids watch YouTube?

the finer points of fashion

October 4th, 2008 — 5:25pm

“Mom, why do you always wear your hood in front of your neck?”

“It’s not a hood, it’s called a cowl. It’s fashionable.”

“Oh, it’s fashionable? Oh.”

it’s not that bad

Eden: Mom, why aren’t you like your mom? When Grammy drives us she doesn’t say rude things and bad words.

All the people in moms life, they are kind of crazy.

take your broke self home

February 17th, 2008 — 11:09am

We let Eden spend a little bit of her birthday money yesterday at Target. She chose a Kidz Bop CD. (For those of you who are not fortunate to have the opportunity to watch Nickelodeon, it’s a pop music remake CD for kids.) I’m starting to wonder if that was a good idea because I woke up this morning to Eden singing,

“If you don’t got no money, take your broke self home.”

6 year old

February 15th, 2008 — 9:53am

On Tuesday, Eden turned 6 years old. After some deliberation, we decided to get her a computer for her birthday. For months she has been asking for one, and fighting with us when we wouldn’t let her use ours. (Who thought I’d have to compete with a 5 year old to use my own computer?) So when it came time to asking her what she’d like for her birthday, she was steadfast in her request for a computer.

So we found an eMac in fantastic shape on Ebay for a good price and barely got it here in time – thanks to all the snow in the mountains! Eden was so, so, SO excited when she got her present early Tuesday morning before school. (Hence the sleepy daddy in the background.)

We also celebrated her birthday on Sunday with a little tea party with her kindergarten friends. Because our gas stove wasn’t here yet (still isn’t!), I bought unfrosted cupcakes from the local bakery and decorated them myself. Hello Kitty, of course…

I just can’t believe that she is six years old. But if you were to talk to her, she would convince you that she was like… 19.. I can’t believe how mature she is these days. And I’m very proud of how well she is doing in school. The other day she read all 64 pages of “Hop on Pop.” It’s such an unexplainable feeling to see your children thriving and succeeding.

nice and sweet

November 1st, 2007 — 7:07pm

Eden has been experiencing an independent, slightly defiant, kindergarten spirit lately. Everything I tell her to do, she argues with me about. I’ve been trying to point out to her that the reason she keeps getting in trouble is because she refuses to obey, but it’s taking some time to sink in.

The other day, after she got in trouble for arguing with me, she looked at me and said, “Why can’t you be nice and sweet like your mom?” (My mom quite appreciated this sentiment.)

such a kindergardener

October 1st, 2007 — 6:10pm

“Raise your hand if you everyone wants to sit by you at dinner.” (That would be me.)

“Raise your hand if you like to sit by Tucky.” (That would be thing 1 and thing 2.)

“Raise your hand if you like to sit on the toilet and play with the computer.” (That would be someone else that lives in this house.)

miss kindergardener

August 24th, 2007 — 8:10am

So, this week has been jam-packed with events – some exciting, some sad, some stressful and some just plain exhausting. I’ve been battling a terrible cold, so the only one I have energy to blog about is probably the most momentous. Eden started Kindergarden on Wednesday.

She is just loving it. And I suspect that Honor is loving his time alone with me too (as evidenced by his sudden good behavior – thank GOD!) When I picked her up, the first thing she said to me was, “Mom, school took forever!” 8 hour days would be a lot to adjust to! But today she is off (and every Friday hereafter) and she is wishing she could go back.

Although I’ve been very calm about the whole thing, I’m really relieved that she’s enjoying school. And I continue to be SO thankful that she got into her school. With all the craziness going on this week, knowing that she is safe and getting a good education is seared in my mind as a huge blessing.
