Dear God, It's me...Macy

Funny little conversation I had the other night...thought I'd share...

Me: Macy, please go upstairs and start picking up your room. I'll come help in a minute.

**a little time went by and I went upstairs to check on how things were going. I peeked in her room and this is what I heard....

Macy: Dear God, please clean my room!

She was a little upset when He did not show up to help! HAHA

The girl is a hoot......

Ok...can this week get any crazier! I just had to put Macy in time out.....I know....shocking. The girl is going thru something and I am ready for this phase to be over. There is only so much whining I can take! :) Yes, my kids whine. I feel like they are the only kids on earth who do....

As I type she is yelling from her bed, "Mommy, I'll be good. Open my door" It breaks my heart. Oh, she just opened her door.....ha ha And while she was in time out she changed her clothes. I tell you that girl changes 50 times a day. It wears me out. Her laundry pile is twice as big as the rest of us. She goes from pj's, to clothes, and back to pj's....ALL DAY. She's a hoot.

Lord, be with me! :)

Our week has been a little hectic. We have had field days, splash days, teacher appreciation lunches, Mothers Tea, homework, baseball, dance, dentist appts.....WOW...I'm ready to veg by the pool!!! I think I have burned about 2 tanks of gas just this week. It is a fun busy but there are days when I really do feel like a taxi! HA

Reid has a museum project due next week at school. You had to choose one famous person and do a little report and memorize 10 things about them. Then next week they are to dress up like that person. Then all the third graders go to the library and just stand there in their spot like a wax figure. haha Then, the kinder-2nd grade come in to see them and push a fake button that is in front of them and when the button is pushed they are supposed to spout out all the information that they memorized!! hahaha I think that sounds so fun. I will have to take some pictures and post them. You'll never guess who he picked.....of course it's a baseball player....Albert Pujols. why?? I don't know...he's crazy...I would have picked Brad Ausmus...he's alot cuter! ha Go Astros! One of his little friends picked Barry Bonds. oh, the drama. It ought to be fun to see what everyone picked.

Gotta go....Princess Macy needs a popsicle.....her 3rd for the day.

Why is it so hard to blog?? I don't know maybe its because I feel like this "season" of my life is CRAZY. It's a fun crazy but one thing I know is that at night when I lay my head down I'm out like a light. Who needs Tylenol PM when you have two kids who like to go, go, go. :)

A few quick updates and rambles:

**There are so many things that need to be done around here. If you came to my house right now you would think a bomb went off. I don't know how people do it. It seems like my house is always a mess. Yes, its toys, laundry, etc...but I can't keep up. Anyone have any good tips on keeping your house decent just in case there is that one friend that decides to pop on over like last week..... HA

**Reid's team is in 2nd place. We went from dead last to actually doing great. We still have a few games left so who knows what our standing will be. The boys are just excited that as of tonight...we are in 2nd. :) Reid had a great game tonight. He hit a triple....he was thrilled. He also made a great out at 1st. I didn't know his little legs could stretch so far off the base. :) He loves playing 1st base. It makes me nervous. The cheerleader in me comes out when he is playing...I never thought I'd be one of those loud Moms but I am. But I do have to say I never say, "Good Eye, Good Eye" (MOM...HA HA HA) I mean get eye??? Who can play baseball like that. heehee

**Macy loves baseball games too.....or should I say the concession stand. Tonight she had popcorn, Sunny-D juice, green apple airhead, watermelon airhead, a push pop (until it fell on the ground and broke into a million candy pieces), and a ICEE push up. I keep score at the games so she knows when she asks me I will just hand her some change. I didn't realize she had had so much until I looked at her shirt and it was covered with food.......she's a smart kid. Now I just pray that there will be no puking in the Sab's house tonight. Next game I need to pay better attention....

**As you can see baseball is our life right now.

**Macy turned 4 last week. WOW I really can't believe that. I will have to post some pictures from her big day. She was so excited about her birthday. This is such a fun age. She woke up and was so excited about being 4...she kept asking me if she was four and kept saying are you sure?? HA We are truly blessed by having her as our daughter. I will try to do a post just for her when I get some pictures. She is such a blessing to me....both my kids are. Sometimes at night when I tuck them in (for the 100th time) I just stare at them and kiss their little cheeks over and over....pure joy.

**I love my family

**I love my friends

**I need to have a garage sale......gag

**Reid was riled up this morning about that mean guy from the A's that was trying to beat up John Lackey. He wasn't too happy about that guy and said that if he was John he would have done the same thing. :) He was late to school today because he had to make sure he had all the facts straight. I'm sure that was what the boys talked about on the playground. hee hee

**I'm ready for the pool to open....not for bathing suits though.

**I need a haircut...but who has time??

I guess I better sign off for now...I'm sure there is alot more I could ramble about but I will save that for another post. I will try to be better about posting more often. It's a great stress reliever! HA Oh, and I will try to post some recent pictures...if I can get Troy to download them for me....he's a pro at that stuff.
