It's my party

So my kid has been a little baby lately. And it's driving me nuts. I'm not an emotional void when it comes to things but seriously. Crying over the littlest things? What, are you 2? Oh wait, you are. I'm sorry baby, I didn't mean that. I just don't get it. ONe day he is a super boy who is captain of the place and the next day he decides he wants to be a cry-baby. Just give me peace for a moment. I even think I would take overly-aggressive boy to weeping willie over here. Nothing big going on in my house. As you can tell by my post. I'm sure for the next week the time not spent doing some exercising or working you will find me holed up in my bedroom watching the new seasons of all my favorite shows!

Fun weekend

So this weekend we went to Kansas City and it was great. We went to the movies, to the mall, watched a fight at Buffalo Wild Wings (on Pay Per View, not in the restaurant!) and went to the Raiders game. Nothing too ridiculous but things that we don't usually have a chance to do together when we have the monkey with us. One thing that made this weekend especially good for me was the time in the car that we could just talk. We don't usually have a lot of time that we just sit together and talk and it's not like we talked the whole way there and back but still enough time to talk. And I got something off my chest that I've been wanting to talk about with him and we had an actual conversation. No jokes were made (and if you know my hubby you know this was a big step) and even though it wasn't completely resolved we made forward progress and I think this will make us a better team. Nothing too exciting, just stuff that if you don't work on it will just fester and then turn sour. So all in all a fabulous weekend! And we saw the movie Extract. A little weird, but I thought it was pretty good. Very dry but good.

All the haters in the house

This weeks spin cycle is about hate. What do I hate? I hate a lot of things. I think in light of football season though I will talk about my hate for football fans. Now I LOVE football! I've talked about it on numerous occasions. But we are going to the Kansas City Chiefs game this weekend and they are playing division rival the Oakland Raiders. Now my hubby is a die hard Raiders fan. I have slowly become a Raiders fan (they are now my new second favorite team behind the REDSKINS!) just because I want to know about what is going on with his team. mom got us tickets to the game for the hubby's birthday. And now he doesn't know if he wants to wear Raiders clothes. Why you may ask? Well because drunk football fans are the worst! (here it comes)

I hate that a person that has no bearing on the outcome of the game feels that it is their place to make other fans uncomfortable and be as rude as possible because they are not going for the same team that you are. And I'm not even talking about the rude, obnoxious fans for the other team that are jeering and cussing and just being rude. We went to a Redskins/Cowboys game in Dallas a few years ago and being the Redskins fan that I am I was cheering for the Redskins. I was not even being obnoxious yet the Cowboys fan a few rows behind me started heckling me. Telling me I was white trash and that my engagement ring was cubic zarconia (sic). I was just cheering for my team and this douche bag had to go and ruin my good time by personally attacking me. I have been to a Chiefs game that I didn't really care who they were playing but I saw numerous people get into fights because they were cheering for the "wrong" team. I really don't know how this weekend will turn out. I am planning on wearing a black t-shirt (Raiders colors are Black/Silver) and I'm sure I will get yelled at but honestly people, it's a game.

And just to be fair, this does not only happen at football games. I went to a baseball game (Royals vs. Cardinals) and the hubby was wearing a Royals shirt at Busch stadium and he got heckled. I just think it is ridiculous. And I think it is even more ridiculous when these people personally attack you. They don't know you. What if it was their mother and you were doing that to her, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't enjoy that. Let's just take some advice from Rodney King and let's all just get along. I hope my weekend is uneventful and if you want to check out other people's hates go to

2 going on 10

My little man is growing up and it is breaking my heart. Breaking it with love, breaking it with pride, breaking it with sadness. I just can't believe that he is such a big kid now. Today we had such an enjoyable afternoon together and we didn't even get on each others nerves! We went shopping at Target, visited grandma and my cousin who is expecting a baby and we hung out playing! The grown up part came tonight after we ran all of our errands. Leo was able to (almost) ride on his bike all by himself. He could almost reach the pedals but he could make it go by scooting his feet. Then we came inside to play his new game he got. And he understood how to play. Without much supervision. Tear. I couldn't believe it. My hubby and I just watched in amazement as we watched our little boy, who I swear was just a teeny tiny baby just a little while ago, run from animal to animal picking the correct one out by listening to the giraffe. It only lasted for about 15 minutes but I still couldn't believe it. Seriously though...check out these pictures and you can see all the transformations my little man has gone through in the last 2 years...

contamination and other random Tuesday thoughts

So our house is contaminated. I have now been contaminated by the mutant 2 year old that is spewing green out of his nose and hacking up a lung every night. I was diagnosed with a sinus infection and bronchitis. The doctor told me the good news was that I didn't have pneumonia or H1N1. Really? That's the good news. the good news would be you have a miracle pill that heals me before my weekend rendezvous with my husband sans 2 year old. Oh do...that's amazing. It better work before Saturday or I will be out to get you. Also, said 2 year old is still fighting off the same stuff and he has the same medicine I do only in liquid form so hopefully he will be better so he doesn't spread the infection to grandma and grandpa.

I am going to get Leo a new game before this weekend with granmda and grandpa. It is a game that the giraffe talks and tells you to find the other animals by different clues. There are 5 levels, so they go from color to sounds to other stuff. I think he will really enjoy it because he loves animals and he has been really good lately about comprehending what we are talking to him about and having fuller conversations with us. It is so weird to see him like a grown-up kid.

Also a huge story on the front...Leo has been doing pretty well with the potty training. We even got him some spiderman underpants. He puts them on over his diaper but we are teaching him that he can't go to the bathroom in his diaper when he is wearing his underpants so he has been letting us know if he needs to go (after we ask him about 15 times if he needs to go.)

I am pretty excited to go to Kansas City this weekend. Even if all we do is hang out in the hotel watching football it will be nice because I won't have to be cooking or cleaning or caring for a 2 year old. I'm pretty stoked actually. And as for going to the Chiefs vs. Raiders game, after watching last nights Raiders game I have a pretty good feeling that the Raiders will be able to overcome the crappy Chiefs and mark a victory making my husband a happy man!

And this is definitely not the year of the celebrity. Everyone keeps dying. I'm not really for sure what it is but I think it may be global warming. Yeah, I'm gonna go with that.

Fall is upon us

How do i know this? Well because professional football started this week. DUH! I love football. I know I have talked about this before, but seriously. I.Love.Football! I spend my week waiting for Sunday to just sit in front of the TV to watch it. I even told Leo this afternoon when the Deadskins (oh I'm sorry, the Redskins) were playing that he needed to leave me alone because I was watching my team. Parenting fail. BUt I don't care. You know why? Because the football season only lasts 20ish weeks. Depending on if I like any teams in the playoffs, which usually I do. But he also needs to learn how to play by I'm kinda giving him a life lesson. Are you ready for some football?

Music as a Weapon

I now know what this means. Last night we got Beatles Rock Band (it's amazing by the way) and I was playing with the hubby. Of course little man needs his guitar so he gets his out and sits next to me on the blanket. We start jamming and I must say that I really get into it. Swaying along, bobbing my head, singing along...anyways...and then all of a sudden BAM. I nailed Leo in the head with my guitar. It was on accident but I felt so bad. Not bad enough to pause the game though. I continued the song (100% I might add...) and then checked on him. He was fine. A little peeved that I didn't stop to nurse his wounds but whatever. On to the next song. Help! I need somebody. Help! Not just anybody. WAAAAAHHHH. Oh what now. Oh yeah, just poked Leo in the eye with my guitar. He was fine but my score was not. We only got 4 stars when we had gotten 5 on all the others. Bite me Beatles...I will get revenge on you and your little killer guitar too! Bwah hahahahaha.

New Old Favorite Thing

My new old favorite thing to do: Coloring.

I have always loved to color. But now being a mom, I actually get to do it again without feeling ridiculous. And I'm not talking grand pictures, I'm talking about the 5-in-1 Dora coloring book that I got to color Dora and Boots and I loved it! It was a little different being directed what color to paint what, but I managed! I may sneak in a little coloring time later tonight after Leo's in bed and I can have the coloring book all to myself! Ahhh...the joys of being a mom!

What's that sound

Question of the day: What do you not want to hear/see when you are awakened by your child in the middle of the night?

A) Crying
B) Coughing
C) Sleeping
D) All of the Above

My answer last night was D. I heard a crying and coughing kid in the next room so I went to go get him to give him either a breathing treatment or cough medicine or both and I arrived to see him still sleeping (or at least trying to) when I went in there. It was the most pathetic thing I have ever witnessed. It broke my heart. I went and got the breathing treatment machine and brought him into our room and got a movie for him to watch. He was hysterical and if anyone has asthma out there, they know that crying only intensifies the coughing. So I finally got him relaxed watching the Incredibles and then I turned the machine on and he flipped out. He's usually ok with the machine but last night he was not having any of it. So I waited for him to go to sleep to try to run it while he was sleeping. Apparently this machine was made by people who don't care about noise because it is so freaking loud. So of course it woke him up and he started freaking out again. Plan B...derailed. So I just got kicked and slept on the rest of the night. Oh well...who needs sleep.

Coming home to gloriousness

I came home last night to a glorious sight. The hubby had dinner ready and he had cleaned up the kitchen. It was pure amazing-ness. I had worked a 10 hour day and the night before had not had a very restful night. I was so happy I sat down, ate dinner and went to bed. Awesome. Sometimes it's the little things that are the best! I don't need flowers or candy (Lord knows I don't need candy!) but just little gestures like that just make me swoon! :)

My upcoming 4-day weekend

I am pretty stoked about having a 4-day weekend. It has made it pretty easy to come back from vacation less than a month ago to now have another mini-vacation. And then in about 2 weeks the hubby and I are going to KC for a trip to a football game and a weekend sans child. That will be fabulosity in itself! THe weekend should be pretty fun too! ;)

So I don't have any huge plans for this weekend but I am off Friday and I am meeting my bestie that used to work with me for lunch. I haven't seen her since she got back from her honeymoon in June and that is just ridiculous. I am excited to see her! I am also going to take Leo to the zoo. He loves being outside and going to the zoo and with the stupid awesome weather we have been having a zoo day is in order!

I originally thought that we should go to see the in-laws this weekend if they don't hit up the ICT (why I am writing ridiculous things I don't know...Probably because I am up at 3:15 hopped up on allergy medicine, but don't judge me monkey!) but the hubby didn't agree. He doesn't really like going home because it makes him sad when he leaves (don't tell him I told you this...) so I guess we will be hanging around the Derb. My dad wants to take Leo back to the lake so I think I will tag along. It will be nice because that means I can hang out at the lake while my dad and Leo play like 2 children. Leo loves him so is really cute! Dad took him to the lake a few weekends ago and then my dad went back last weekend by himself. When I told Leo that grandpa was at the lake he asked me why Leo wasn't at the lake...cue the awwwws. It made my dad so happy! Other than the zoo and the lake I don't think much else will be hap-a-lapping. (Again, I'm sorry) So it should be a pretty good weekend all in all.
