What makes me laugh everyday?

I would have to say...my kids! Honestly, they say and do the funniest things that I really do crack up hard sometimes, and I think it catches them off guard to see me belly-gut laugh...then they just join in as if they know what they said was funny...when in all actuality they said it in all seriousness. Take Raegan for example...she ALWAYS says the funniest things with the best facial expressions. When she is mad, her face and her hand and head movements come straight from a teen movie. It's hilarious, and I can't help but laugh, which stirs her fire even more and gets her so mad. Her latest thing lately is this. When she wants something she KNOWS I'm not going to give her...like a bag of marshmallows right before dinner...she says, 'mom, i don't know, I just really feel like I want some marshmallows, but, I know I can't.' All day she whips this out. 'Mom, I really feel like I want some more, of this, or of that...but, I know I can't' And no lie, she is laying down right now for a nap and she just turned to me and said, 'Mom, I really sound like I want some candy, but I know I can't till I wake up, but I really sound like I want some right now. I feel like I really want one.' I'm dying, and she says it with a smile now, cause I always laugh and then give in. She's a genius. Really.

And then Evan. Oh Evan. The kid is in full conversation now, and I have to say that I sincerely laugh at that boy more than anyone. The way he talks is funny all in its own right. And then add on the way he walks and runs...wow! So, today, I had mixed emotions about what he said. I'm getting him ready for a nap, and as I pick him up from the changing table to lay him down, I can't help myself and just squeeze him and kiss him a million times and squeeze him again and say as I am squeezing him, 'oh I freakin love you baby, way too much...' and so on. He responds, 'no mom! Ine a boy mama. I not a baby mom. Ine a boy, k.' WHAT! I laughed at first, then got sad. He is a boy and he is going to be a big boy once I really do have this baby. I remember that happening with Rae when Evan was born. She was so big, and old...and BIG, I swear overnight. I'm sad about this. He will remain my baby for as long as I possibly can see him that way cause I know something bizarre happens once a new bundle of baby joy arrives.

All in all, I'm so glad I have my kids around me all the time. Today could've been depressing with dropping Shawn off to see him go for his first of many roadtrips, but I was so lucky to have the company and sweet laughter of my kids. I need to be more grateful for this cause I know it all ends too soon...from what others tell me:) No pics, sorry. And yes, Rae did end up with 2 marshmallows during her 'nap'. I'm a sucker:)

Too funny Farrs! I am a bit nervous about Austin's whole transition to the "big brother". I am confident that he is ready, it is me!! He is totally a big boy already, but he is STILL MY BABY! AHHHH!! I keep telling people he is two or two and a half, I am not wanting to rush him to that 3 yr old mark at all...then they ask when his birthday is, "oh in like 3 weeks" haha!! Miss you guys so much. Sorry road trip season has begun, wish I was closer to hang out more. Love you!

farrah,

first off... i love when you update your bloggy.

Second... you made me laugh really hard. I love when rae does that. She does it all the time to me, but with me she will say, "I really, really want that right now but I know my mom won't let me cause I need to eat my dinner first". She kills me farrah.

Third... Evan... why o why is he the greatest thing ever. I want to eat that little precious moment. He is so so so great farrah. I can't wait for your third. It will be so unreal.

You are unbelievable. I need to be a better sister and see you more than once every two weeks. So lame. Perhaps L man and I will come down there next week. We need to just get out. Love you farrs... call me when you get this and we can chatty chat chat. :)

At least she warns you before she's thinking of sneaking off and getting junk food. It's fun to hear those little thoughts.... because you know we all think them....... gee, I really NEED some chocolate right now but I know I shouldn't....happens all the time to me. Can't speak for anyone else. I call that positive self talk.

I loved just sitting there reading him books and watching him pronounce everything and say it exactly how I said it. He is the cutest. And raegan, can't believe that girl. i wanna squeeze her so hard. Love her. Please invite me to that get together with rachel :) i live close now, i want to come. love you farrah, cant wait for lil peanut to be born and see who she looks like. :) have a nice day

Farrah... This totally made me smile. I love your kids, and I'm so excited you are having another one! I didn't get to chat with you at the blue/white game, but you are looking cute as always. Miss you.

love those kids!! Glad to hear I am no the only sucker wrapped around their kids little fingers! Rae gives me hope for Scarlet ...someday I hope Scarlet might say "mom, I really really want to pinch that little helpless girls cheeks till she screams and bleeds, for no reason...but I know I shouldn't." I'll keep hoping:) Love you...craft day...???
