Random thoughts.

The other night Owen had some American Chopped Suey (otherwise known as "scutteremupthehill" if you're from Whitefield). He made such a mess of himself that I had to get out the camera and as I was taking his picture I was reminded of a similar instance with "scutteremupthehill" when Luke was exactly his age. I searched the picture and thought I would share them both.

Owen


Luke..(try to ignore the redeye)


Funny.

Yesterday I went through my dresser..and Jessalyn's dresser to get rid of some clothes. I hate it when I fold laundry and go to put it away but the dressers are full already. Drives me nuts. I went through and got ride of tons of stuff. Some of it is my size..but since I never wear it I figure theres no reason to keep it. Same for Jessalyn. She is particular about what she wears so I just bagged up stuff that she hasn't worn for a while. I am much happier now. I also went through Owen's dresser to box up the stuff that he has grown out of.

I have been in a constant debate with myself on whether or not to get rid of his clothes too. I am pretty sure that we are not having another baby...but at the same time I've done that TWO times now. I've given away the baby clothes only to get pregnant a few months later..and then have to scrounge for stuff when the baby is born. Right now its all in a tote...not at the clothing center. I asked Josh this morning if I should get rid of it. His answer was "I don't know". I should just get rid of it..because if I happened to get pregnant again I would HAVE to have another girl anyway!

So then I was looking for the picture of Luke covered with scutteremupthehill and the boys wanted me to go through a bunch of the old pictures. We looked through months and months of old pictures...of when Ethan was Owens age and Luke was in my belly. Ugh..that didn't help me with my decision to throw out clothes. Luke had fun telling me about how he remembers being in my belly:) Luke has been on a kick of telling me "we need to put a baby dirl in your belly so Owen will have a friend to play with". He tells me this daily. I keep reminding him that he can be Owens friend!

More random thoughts...

Have I mentioned Mario Kart Wii yet?? We've had this game for a while now..since the day it came out...and its awesome! The kids LOVE it..and are pretty good at it. Its just as fun for the adults. I have nothing but good reviews for this game. You can buy the game with the steering wheel..but you have to get an extra because its just not as fun without it.

Instant entertainment. Ethan figured out how to play other people "around the world". Funny.

I just cleaned out the garage...gave away all the big things...swing, excersaucer, bouncy seat, tub...it was tough...all three kids used them. My mother in law keeps telling me to go for #4...I think we're done...but there is always that feeling deep down wondering 'what if?'

Go for it...they say after 4 kids you can have 8 and it's still just the same amount of work!
