It's been way too long since I have done a random blog. I'm gonna try to catch up, so I'll talk about Jaden on this post...

Jaden is the best big brother ever. He is so good to his little sister. One day we were driving in the car on our way to school and Kiki was talking about her friends at school. She said that sometimes her friends aren't nice to her (just like normal little kids) and Jaden said to her, "don't worry Kiki, I'm your big brother and I won't let anyone hurt you." What 3 year old boy says that!?! MY little Jaden! It melted my heart and brought tears to my eyes. We won't talk about what Kaylie did after that, lol.

At school last week in Jaden's class they talked about what they want to be when they grow up. Jaden picked a firefighter. He asked Kaylie what she wants to be when she grows up and she replied in her sweet little voice, "pretty". :o) What a little princess she is!

Jaden is doing AWESOME at school. He loves his class and his teachers. He always runs in and says hi to all of them and all his friends say "Jaden!" and get to excited to see him. He is learning so much. He can even write his name! It's not legible, but you can definitely tell that he has the shape of the letters down and is getting close to legible. He is learning sounds of letters and what words start with letters. He can even SPELL his name out loud, and of course he can spell CARS.
Jaden's latest favorite things are Phineas and Ferb, Lucky Charms, Thomas the Train, Spiderman, playing pretend, playing with his friends at school, riding his bike, going to Dalton's house on Saturdays, reading stories, asking a million questions a day. :o)

I am so proud of my little boy. He is getting smarter and smarter everyday. He loves to learn new things and is always asking questions. He is very in tune with me and my feelings and always wants to make sure I'm okay. He loves to come sit by me and says, "Mommy I want to cuddles." I love it, I love cuddling with him. He is such a sweetheart. One day I was crying and really sad about relationships and men and all the stresses in life and I was crying pretty hard. Well he came and sat by me and asked me what was wrong? And I told him how sorry I am that I'm crying and that I want him to be happy. And he said, "don't worry mommy, i'm here and we will be okay. And we have Daddy to help us." It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it.

I love him so much!!! I'm soooo glad he is my son. :)

day 29

in this past month, what have you learned?

I have learned how hard it is being a single, full-time working, full-time mother! My life has completely changed. I feel like I don't ever have time to myself because by the time my kids go to bed I am beat and ready for bed! At least when I was a stay at home mom I could take naps with my kids and get some rest! I miss my naps. It's definitely been a challenge but I do enjoy working and earning money for myself and my kids.

I have learned that true friends stand by you when the rest of the world walks out.

I have learned to focus more on my kids and their needs and less on mine.

Day 22

day 22- what makes you different from everyone else...

This one is WAY too hard...I know that I am unique and have great qualities that some people don't have, but different from everyone else is pretty extreme. Some things that make me different from SOME people...I am a non-Mormon BYU fan, lol. Go Cougars!! I am a very happy person and try to stay upbeat and positive; I have two kids that are only ten months apart. :)

day 19- nicknames you have and why you have them

LoLo - my friend Jack just started calling me that one day and it stuck. And now Erick calls me LoLo and Lo. I love it. :)
Lowen - my mom and sister have called me that as long as I can remember, as well as LaurLaur.
Zinger - my dad gave me that nickname when I was really little because I loved Zingers so much. 
Lauren-bro - My brother Ryan calls me that. He's called me that for years. We're tight. :)
LT - my boss at work calls me LT because his wife's name is Lauren and he didn't want to call me Lauren so he uses my initials.

day 17-

day 17- someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why...

Britney Spears...why? Because I freakin love her! I would love to switch with her for a day. Specifically when she is on tour. It'd be sooo fun to perform on stage at a concert, sing fun songs, wear hot outfits, and have a freakin nice body! Yes, this picture is pre-kids, but she STILL looks great post kids. Anyway, it'd be fun to switch for a day!
