Umm...Not sure how I feel about it...

While in San Diego on our way to the Beach we stopped at the store for some food. We got lunch stuff and drinks and a bowl of already cut up watermelon. (Not the best idea for the beach, the watermelon that is) So the watermelon never got eaten or even opened. We also had a sandwich that came with chips not opened.

We saw a Homeless man on the side of the road with a sign asking for help. So I had the GREAT idea to give him the food....So we pulled over I get out walk over to him and ask if he would like it. and he says "No I am not hungry" In my head I am thinking "Really? are you kidding me you are begging for help and I am here to help and you say NO!!! REALLY!!!??" But I say "well you're going to get hunry" He still says no and I walk away getting turned down by a homeless man.... Who am I 99% sure sign said he was hungry.....

We never did find another homeless person to give the food to so it went uneaten and bad....and I was sad...

Still can't believe it. Kind of makes me not want to help..only kind of....

potty training 101

Two weeks ago this little man thought it would be a GREAT time to potty train...right before San Diego. Umm okay? whatever. I didn't actually think he would I thought he just wanted to maybe try to use the potty and that would be that. NOPE he goes potty on the potty. Pee and poop!! And I did NOTHING to make that happen!!!! Cause I am AWESOME!!

This is how I potty train in my house. "When the kids are ready they will show me." Which for Jordan he was 3 years and 3 months. Kenzie was 2 and a half (and it was the day after I had gone to costco to get diapers.) and Bob 2 years and 9 months. And I didn't have to push or "train" a single one!! That is not to say we didn't have any peeing in their pants. Jordan had a hard time staying dry at night. Kenzie peed herself maybe 2 times. And the most recent one is when we heard Bob say "I pee in the hole" and he came out of the kitchen with pee all over his pants. Will told him about the "hole" in the front of his undies so that he would wear them the right way cause he was wearing them the wrong way to see the cars. NICE!!! BAD.IDEA.WILL!!!

So my advice to you since it has worked for 3 kids over here is DON'T stress!! And they will go when they are ready it will be easier on you and them and will happen in no time with less mess too!! I have yet to clean up any mess from Bob (well other then the pee in the hole one:) )

A pirates life for me......

While in San diego we got to take a tour of the pirate ship used in the movie Pirates of the Carribean (and Master and Commander, but the kids could care less about that part. It was a REAL pirate ship!!!) If you know Jordan you know he LOVES pirates he has had 3 pirate parties now and it talking about having another one....(HELP ME:) ) anyways....... Here is Captain Jack Spar...I mean Jordan "driving"ship.
Bob just wanted to shoot something! And he makes some cute faces too.

This is a letter Written by Christopher Columbus. How cool is that!!!???

Me and Bob on the ship

And my sweet sassy pants girly girl! I love this of her and I love the water in the back!

The kids had a GREAT time looking and this ship and playing pirates on a real ship!

A picture how to...

My MIL has a 5x7 picture of each grand kid on her wall and has asked for an updated one of Henry. She really wants one of all his hair:) And since the last one was when he was only 2 weeks old I thought it was a good idea. Since we were in San diego I thought it was a good time to try....Ummm Henry wasn't so sure..Here is our how to take a picture of a 10 month old who would rather eat the rocks and crawl. Picture one says : OH I wasn't suppose to wave at my daddy.
Picture two: OH you want me to crawl and get real super close and do it in less then .0003 seconds so you hardly have any time to back up...OKAY done!

Picture 3: I wanted that rock that was in my mouth......

Picture 4: This is what happens when mommy kisses me!

Picture 5: PERFECT!!!

*note it took WAY more then 5 pictures to get a good one and it may or may not have included more rock eating, crying, kisses, yelling (by the other kids), dancing, and other craziness. But it only took about 5 minutes!*
