Yesterday my brother Ryan, Jaden, Kaylie and I were laying on the floor reading books. Jaden was pointing out all the different things he knew and just for fun I pointed to a circle and asked what shape it was. I have never taught him shapes yet so I didn't think he would know, but sure enough he did! He said circle, then pointed to a square and said square and then pointed to a triangle and said triangle. I was floored! I was ecstatic, clapping my hands, high fives all around, it was awesome. I was such a proud mommy. I'm tellin ya it is all the tv shows that he watches. I don't care what people say that kids shouldn't watch tv when they are this little. My son is a freakin smarty pants because of it. All the shows like Dora, Diego, Super Why, Little Einsteins, they all teach him so much stuff. It's awesome!

Tomorrow is my big moving day! I really should be sleeping right now, but I am too wound up and excited. I can't wait to be all settled in our new place. I will take pictures asap. :)

Tomorrow is also a big day because The Bachelorette finale is on!!! woohoo :) I'm such a nerd, but I love it and I don't care. I am very interested to see who she picks. This is the first season where I really have no clue what guy she will pick. Reid is coming back, so she will have 3 to choose from. I still like Kiptyn the best. Ed is boring!

I ♥ Big Brother. I think that show is so dang good. That's all I have to say now :)

After quite a few tests and a miserable 3 weeks my doctor has decided I have to get a colonoscopy done on Tuesday morning. This is something I am not looking forward to and am very nervous about it. I'm mostly dreading the day before the procedure. I will spare you the details, but I'm sure most of you know the stuff I will have to deal with.

Jaden is getting his last 2 year molar in. I took him to the doctor this morning because he has been very ornery the past couple of days. I was pretty sure it was another ear infection, but it was just his teeth. owch!

Kaylie is getting sweeter and sweeter everyday. I think she is growing out of her "high maintenance" stage, but I'm sure it will come back, if not soon it will come back in her teenage years. :) She is such a sweet, good little girl. She loves little babies, probably because they don't pick on her like her brother and his friends. She will go right up to any baby and give them a hug or get down to their level and talk to them. She is also becoming more and more social. Every time we've been at the pool she will go up and just sit down by someone and start smiling at them or babbling.

I felt like the worse mom ever today because I had to take the kids to Draper to meet my sister grocery shopping. I felt bad because it was 101 degrees outside which means it was probably 110 in my car! My air conditioning is broken, boy is it miserable! The kids got so ornery on the way back home, I felt soooo bad. Anyone want to give me their car with air conditioning? Thank you, come again. :)

I am getting pretty stressed out now because I am supposed to be moving in one week and I still have lots of packing to do. I also have my colonoscopy on Tuesday so that will take away packing time. I also can't afford to get a Uhaul so I need trucks and not sure if I will find someone willing to help with their truck. We will see! I can't wait for us to be in our nice, new place.

I am so glad that Big Brother is on now. I love that show! So much drama already and it's only week 2! Someday I would love to be on that show. I think it would be so fun.

Jaden is starting to learn the words and recognize some songs that come on the radio. He loves to sing Taylor Swift's song, You Belong With Me. Him and Kaylie love that song. Also, there is a song called Bust it Baby and he starts singing "baaabbbbbyyyy" right when it comes on. I love to watch them dance and get excited over certain songs.

It's been really hard for me to get used to being back at work. Even though I'm only away from my babies 5 hours a day, it is hard. I miss them a lot. It's also been hard with my health issues and being so tired. I'm very thankful for my friends that are watching my kids. They are the best and my kids have so much fun with their kids.

Sunday Confessions

I confess that I'm really starting to give up on men all together. Are there any good ones left in this world?

I confess that I'm craving sugar cookies right now.

I confess that I feel like the black sheep in my family.

I confess that I let my kids talk to each other for about ten minutes before I finally get out of bed in the morning and get them.

I confess I can be superstitious at times.

I confess I have a lot more packing to do and I'm moving very soon!

Thankful Tuesday

I missed "Thankful Thursday" and I really wanted to do one so here it is. We will call it "Thankful Tuesday" instead.

I am thankful that I start my new job tomorrow. I am also thankful for my amazing brother and friends for being willing to watch my kids while I work.

I am thankful for good books to read. I love getting lost in a really good story.

I am thankful that while AJ has been here I have gotten some really good naps and been able to do fun things with friends and a certain someone special. :)

I am thankful for medicine! I went to my doctor yesterday and he gave me medicine for my "sickness" I've had the past week. NOT fun, but I am feeling much better!

I am thankful that Wes is FINALLY off The Bachelorette. What a jerk!

I am thankful for my mom and how supportive she is of me and my choices.

I am thankful for my kids. They are the best thing that has ever happened to me. I love them so much!

*random thoughts*

I am full of random thoughts today so here it goes!

On Sunday I emailed my resume for an insurance job. The guy called me first thing on Monday and set up an interview for today at 4. I went to the interview and it went extremely well. The guy paused near the end and said "well, I have 2 other people that I'm considering, but you are definitely the most qualified, so I would like to offer you the position." Isn't that awesome?! I was thrilled! The job is going to be the perfect schedule for me. It will be Monday through Friday, 1 to 5 pm. I will still have the mornings and the evenings with my kiddies. I'm very excited to be back in the "real world" and make money again! The past couple of weeks I have been super stressed about being so poor. It sucks not being able to drive somewhere because I don't have gas in my car. Anyway, I start my job next Wednesday!

I've been bottling up my emotions the past few days about something and today I finally exploded. My mom got to hear it and I appreciate her listening to me and helping me feel better. I feel like because this is my blog where I can write my feelings I need to say what's on my mind. I just want to say that I really, truly, honestly care very much about AJ (Jaden and Kaylie's dad) and will always love him. He helped bring our little angels into this life and I am so grateful for that. I know that him and I have had our differences and been through a lot of bad times, but the bottom line he is my kids' dad. I may not always agree with the things he does or get mad at him about something, but I know he loves my kids and I and has a good heart. He is coming to visit this weekend and I am very excited for the kids to get to see their daddy! Those of you that care, just know that AJ will always be around for the rest of Jaden and Kaylie's lives. He's their dad! AMEN! LOL :)

What the hell is up with Wes on The Bachelorette. He is such a jerk! I can't stand to even look at him or hear his ugly voice. Jillian is completely sucked in and blinded by who he really is. I really hope he goes home next week. Kiptyn and Reed are my favorite. :)

If any of you haven't seen The Proposal yet with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, go see it right now! Omg that movie is so good. I absolutely loved it. I've seen it twice already and could see it a hundred times.

I am soooo excited to move in only a few weeks. I am moving into a super nice place here in Pleasant Grove. It's a 3 bedroom condo, only a year old. I am going to feel like a queen compared to what I am living in now. I am not looking forward to the whole moving process though, especially now since I will be working. I have lots to do!

Good times!

The other day we went to see our friend Jessica and her little stud muffin Gene, who are in town from Arizona. There were 8 kids total and 4 of us moms. :) It was a lot of fun! I had Madison with me, the little girl that I babysit once a week. Boy having three kids under the age of TWO is lots of work!!!
Here are some fun pictures from our day.

all 8 kiddies playing with the toys :)
