My boys are trying ot kill themselves

I now have the Poison Control Center programmed into my cell phone. The number is 1-800-222-1222. For whoever might need it.

They put everything in there mouth. This week alone they have swallowed coins and medicine.

Scott told Carson that he would be "pooing money" so now he constantly asks if he has any money in his diaper. Cooper thought it would be fun to drink his iodine medicine for his skin problem. In case anyone was wondering, it takes coins about 2 days to pass through the body and this particular type of iodine (iodium) is not toxic if injested. Good to know. If I don't kill them, they will kill themselves anyway.

Box fort

I am a big fan of Dr. Laura. She is a radio talk show host that supports moms raising their children. So one day I was listening to get support to be a better mother and wife. Meanwhile thinking to myself I wish the kids would take a nap and leave me alone for 45 minutes. Obviously I wasn't really internalizing Dr. Laura's advise. So then after I heard a caller that related to myself, I decided to be a good mom. I turned off the radio show and Carson and I spent the rest of the afternoon making this cool box fort.

I even climbed inside for an optimum mother-son bonding experience.

Look at that face, we had a great time. Carson kept saying, "Cool Box, Cool Box".

Notice I'm not a perfect mom, he's still in his pjs and it 3:00 in the afternoon. Line upon line, blah blah blah.

When it got dark, I brought the fort inside for Cooper. So he could play and bask is my good mothering.

We all had a great time. Thanks Dr. Laura.

Dead Meat

I must be a great a mom. My boys are not making any noise. Its been 20 minutes of peace and quiet. Nobody is crying and they are not watching TV. They have finally learned to entertain themselves and not bug each other. I must be a great mom. So, I decided to check on what they were doing, half expecting some genius acivity of some sort. This is what I found. . .

They were raiding the Easter egg candy from a hunt we had last week.

Covered in a sticky jellybean/chocolaty mess. They are dead meat. BOYS!!!!!

Nobody's Perfect

We tried to take a family picture for Scott's Dr. website. Something that says "family guy", but my children do not sit still and especially not for a camera. So all those perfect families in the photos with no blinks, or runny noses, or crying child because of the sun, that's not my family. We are not perfect and these photos are as good as it gets.

My personal favorites...

The best pictures were the ones when we stopped trying.

200 pictures later, there is still no family group shot to hang on the wall, but I did get some great shots of my men. They may not be perfect but I sure love them.
