I had the scariest experience last 2 am....laying in bed in a deep sleep I wake to the most frightening sound EVER!


aaaaaAAAAHHHHHHHHHhhhhhh......what could it be..???? I sit there perfectly ears perked for ANY sound..........................nothing...I slip out of bed and head towards the I reach the bathroom door I hear...

ooooooOOOOOOooooo OOOOOOooooooo

AAAaaahhhaahhhhh AAAAhhhhhhaaaaa!

I flick on the light and TADA what do I see........

Every parent knows the sound a toy makes when the batteries die! Well now, imagine how a Chimpanzee would sound once dropped into a tub of water and drying out in your very acoustic bathroom! Matthew had taken a bath earlier in the day and grabbed Mikey's life like chimp baby off my floor as he made a mad dash to the water and chucked it in. I Quickly rescued the poor toy and had it sitting in my sink to drip dry all day. 2am rolls around and batteries decided that RIGHT then would be a GREAT time to ooooooOOOOOOO OOOOOoooooo AAAAAAAAHHHH

AAHHHhhhhhaaahhhhhhh OOOOOoooooooooooooo! It sounded like a Sadistic gorilla slowed down! I was soooo scared!..

The chimp has been dealt with! Batteries removed, and is now hiding in Mikey's bed covers, as he is afraid if Mom See's it again she may chuck him

some watch dog Jupiter is! didn't even hear it!

The condemed was granted a pardon!

All real names have been changed to protect the not so innocent.....oh they haven't! As you can see from the photo's, Matthew decided that when Jon called would be the PERFECT opportunity to find a RANDOM red sharpie (and we don't even own one!!! where did it come from!!!) and color the walls down the hall, color his closet door, my bedroom door, the bathroom wall, the wood cabinetry in the bathroom, the counters, the sink it's self, the toilet seat, the top of the toilet tank, and the tub.......................... niceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Once I realized what had happened, I went CCRRRARZZZY! how can you spank a face like that!! I mean look at him hiding in the When I told Jon on the phone he said...does this remind you of something...WELL YES!! as you can see.. At 4 Cody also had a nice brain fart and used a stamping ink pad to color the walls, the floors and heavens for the Magic Eraser!!!! so far it has removed 90% of it and we will get the rest off some how! LITTLE MONKEY!!!

It's a good thing too or I would have sold him to the Gypsy's today!

Be Attitudes

Mikey had a great school performance yesterday where all the 2nd graders got to sing songs they had been practicing since the beginning of the school year on the different ways to be a good citizen, it was super cute and he has been SOOOOOOOOOOO excited. He had a special job jumping rope during one number (yeah, I didn't get it either until I realized the three jumping rope were the squirmiest of the bunch and the music teacher likely had them doing so to keep them busy) and in two other numbers played the (G) on the "boom whackers" to The I will explain what a boom whacker is, it's a long plastic tube cut down to size that when WHACKED makes a sound close to a musical note. He was soooooooo proud. The musical number below, Mikey is in the front row on the left, khaki es and red shirt with navy vest.
Afterward he also gave Jon a little shout a cutie! Unfortunately you can hear my in the back ground making comments, attempting to offer to video a fellow parents child as her battery died, and telling Jon little things

Those of you with LITTLE ones at home are likely familiar with this show! Frankly I don't know how it made it to air! It's like teletubbies on acid! Some washed out tv exec, Shroomed out of his mind, sleeping in his Mother's basement thought....... "Hey I know! Lets make a show that little kids will be drawn too and parents will want to gnaw off a limb while watching it!"
It's like a bad car accident on the freeway, everyone slows to a roll and turns to watch.. drawn to the blood and gore and you can't pull yourself away even though it's hideous! THAT for me in a YO GABBA GABBA! And my Matthew LOVES IT!!!!! Everytime it comes on I cringe and melt into the couch trying to hide behind my laptop, praying for it's end and then hateing myself when at 4 am the next morning ... "There's a parttttyyy in my tummyyyy.....there's a party in my tummyyyy........there's a party in my tummyyy....yummy yummy!!!" runs through my head! Some one save me from Childrens programing hell! THOSE CARROTS REALLY SCARE ME!!!!!!!!!!! eek

My amazing Matty

This kid really is so funny! I blows my mind with how well behaved he is. He now takes naps when I tell him too, goes right to bed at night, is a huge snuggler! I love that throughout the day he runs up to me grinning and wraps his arms around my neck, presses his cheek to mine hard and giggles..."Myyyyyy Mommyyyyy...mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!" sooo cute! He helps clean his own room and loves to do whatever his big brothers do.

Mind you he is a typical 2 year old, so yes...he does do...some interesting has learned how to scale the cabinets to get what he wants...and silently too! It's like stealth mode baby!
As you can see from the was on the counter with his stuffed Monkey on his back trying to get the football I had placed in time out since no one was useing it nicely in the house. I just couldn't miss the oppurtunity to take a picture of The other pictures are of him at Blast off for Cousin Corey's birthday just an assortment of playing and eating cake, trying to get in the gear so he could try to rock climb...yeah fat chance, just some really cute pictures of him being...him! . It was a fun day and this little guy just really melts my heart!
