Head-butting Grandma

Another thing to add to the list of things I never thought I’d have to say in my lifetime.

"Josh, don’t head-butt Grandma."

Things have been very hectic here for the last day or so, but I like a bit of chaos, so its not bad. Tammy and Jaden have been gracing us with their presence the past day or so, it’s been fun having them around.

I wish that the weather would decide what it’s going to do. It was snowing the other day, then today, it got up to 66. I guess that’s what I get for living in Indiana.

We went to the school to have lunch with the triplets today. The first thing that happened when we got there was Eric said "Mommy and Daddy I am so glad you are here with me!" How great is that?

We joined Hannah and Eric and several of their classmates on a short parade around the school with musical instruments, and then went back to the classroom for lunch.

Lunch was: Macaroni and Cheese with ham bits, bread and butter, and fresh carrots and cucumbers with ranch dressing. The school lets the kids serve themselves, even pour their own milk, which, Hannah and Eric both spilled theirs. The rule is, you have to put some of everything on your plate, but you only eat what you want. Which, isn’t a great rule when it comes to preschoolers, because as we witnessed, our own kids barely ate.

I got my lip pierced the other day (thanks Alex!). It kinda hurt. lol. I posted a pic of it, but after I dye my hair again, I’ll post more. It’s kinda icky looking right now, because it’s healing.

I don’t think there is much else going on right now, but I’ll blog again soon.

Easter Morning Fun!

The Easter bunnies were up late last night filling baskets, and hiding eggs. One of the bunnies set a few eggs near the bedroom doors of the children. Imagine our suprise when we went to get the children for the egg hunt, and found a pile of empty plastic eggs near their door. All the candy that had been in them, consumed by the trio.

We had decided that since it was a special day, and that you can’t really expect a 4 year old to ignore candy sitting right outside of their bedrooms that no punishment would be given out. But, we would let them know that they shouldn’t have.

So we entered the triplet’s room. Adam asked "Did you guys eat some candy this morning?"

Eric - "No!"
Josh - "No."
Hannah - "I did!"

Adam - "Ok guys we need to tell the truth now. Did you eat the candy this morning?"

Hannah - "I ate candy!"
Eric - "no"
Josh - "Are you going to be mad at us?"

(I tried really hard not to giggle at this, but I don’t think I managed to stop the giggles)

Adam - "Josh, you need to tell the truth whether I’ll be mad or not, telling the truth is good."

Josh - "I ate the candy."

Adam - "Ok then buddy, lets all go see what the Easter bunny left for you!"

So the Easter bunnies didn’t go overboard this year like many years in the past. I think he brought just enough candy to last for a few days, but not enough that it will be sitting around for months and months only to be thrown away. The little ones also got toys for the sand box they got for their birthday. Morgan got a video game for the 360 that she’s been begging for for a long time. Everyone got the required chocolate bunny, and I got Cadbury Eggs! So we are all fairly happy today.

The children are currently all hyped up on chocolate, and running around giggling and jumping up and down. I love it. lol

Hope everyone has a great Easter. We are headed out later to Adam’s brother’s house for dinner and most likely more candy.
