First day of school

Zoe's first day of school was yesterday :)
Everything seems ok so far. She's still not wanting to go to bed early and when I got her up this morning and told her she had to get up for school, her reply to me was "again?" lol
Child.. you have at least 12 more years of school.. and then you're going to always have dreams and nightmares about it forever and ever.
Seriously.. I still have dreams about not remembering my locker combination or not doing homework. WTH?? lol

Seems like a nice school too. Only thing that's a little bad about it is that they're trying to be a "health conscious" school. I mean that's not a bad thing, but not allowing parents to make cookies or cupcakes etc for the kids or not allowing certain snacks & lunches to be sent. MEH lol
I do have to park to get Zoe. We switched her from the 5point harness carseat to the regular one. Her seat still has a back on it, it's just the regular lap and shoulder strap now. She can unbuckle herself, but she can't buckle herself in so I have to park and get her.
Not a huge deal really since not that many parents do it and the parents that park actually get out of the area quicker than the line of cars waiting to get their kids.
Also drop her off early in the morning for school breakfast.
Girl needs to eat, but her picky butt comes home saying that she's only eaten some fruit and had milk. These school lunches and breakfasts are not cheap!! lol She really needs to get over her pickiness.

She's also in a class with someone that the family knows.... but doesn't really like for some reason.
I never got the hate that the inlaws show them. They talk SO much shit about them. I hate hearing it b/c what I've seen of them.. they seem like really decent people.
Like SiL was saying that the mom always compares her child to SiL's and other kids and she'll do the same with Zoe.
Yeah... So? Pretty much all parents compare. And dogging on them for "working with" the child to get them ready for school.
Again... so? I was doing that with Zoe. Granted I wasn't doing it a lot lol... but I bought her workbooks and stuff and encouraged her to write. Nothing wrong with that.
Hell... maybe we should rag on SiL and her husband for not doing anything to prepare their child for school. I bet they wouldn't like that shit now would they??
Just get tired of them talking shit about people that don't deserve it. Just shows their insecurities.

Oh and that solar eclipse was Monday... in case anyone was living under a rock lol.
We got the full eclipse here and it was pretty darn cool.
The clouds were kept at bay at home, but unfortunately for DH, at work, it was pouring rain. Sad that he didn't get to see it, but also happy that we did.
The kids thought it was neat.
And yes... Oren is wearing a skirt b/c according to Zoe.. he was a rockstar... /shrugs lol


What else....
I have no idea lol. Just living life :)

1 year old!

So... Ezra is now one. Can't believe it's been a year already! Feels like just yesterday that I was pregnant with him.
Gosh time flew by.
Took him to his 12m appointment yesterday and his ped heard a heart murmur :(
I knew something was wrong when she was taking a bit longer checking his heart beat.
She didn't seem too concerned with it, but I'm sure that's just her training kicking in to not show any worry so the parents don't freak out, but yeah.. I freaked out internally.
We're supposed to be getting a call from a cardiologist to get him an ultrasound done to check him out. Please don't let it be anything serious :(

He's perfect though. Demanding little turd lol, but he's adorable and such a happy little long as he's not hungry lol.
He's been kind of self weaning off of formula. He only gets around 4 bottles a day now and much prefers normal food.
Just having a problem getting him to drink from a sippy cup. Need to find one that he likes so we can completely ditch the bottle.

I love the serious picture. Every time I see it.. I always hear that one song.. "Hello Darkness, My old friend...." rofl

He desperately needs a haircut. I'm gonna miss his hair though whenever that happens :( It's so crazy and awesome.

Zoe did a kindergarten sneak peak yesterday. She seemed to have fun.
Not sure how much fun she'll have when she needs to wake up before 7 though. Hell.. same here. Can't wait for her to start though. Make friends, learn, just get out of the house instead of being cooped up in here all day every day.

That's it for now. Just wanted to post about Ezra before I forgot to update.

MIA... sorry!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while.
Honestly, just needed a little break from posting. Nothing major has been going on. Just life as usual :)

Today is Zoe's birthday though. She has a stomach bug. Seems to hit her in the morning, but she's fine after a little while for the rest of the day.

Can't believe my baby girl is 5yo today.
Five years old. Man..... they really do grow up so fast.

We're having hers and Ezra's birthday parties on Saturday. Gave her a few of her presents today and she's getting the bigger stuff Saturday. Also letting her cousin spend the night Friday night.

Tomorrow is Ezra's birthday. I'll post some photos of him tomorrow once I take some :)
He's not walking, but he is crawling. He can crawl crawl, but he still mostly does this army crawl thing. He gets around perfectly fine. He does pull up, but not fully on to his feet yet. I think he's only done that once and that was today lol.

What else... tomorrow I have to take Zoe to her school to get a quick test thing done for her. Not sure what they're doing.
Then on Thursday, she has a short 2hour day... preview kind of thing and parents and kids have a chance at "practicing" pickup.
I know she's gonna love school and I can't wait to hear all about her days once she starts :)

Oren is great too. Not potty trained at all, but we might start soon... ish.
He's such an emotional little toddler though. MAN.... terrible twos are no joke.
And he looks up to Zoe so so much. It's the cutest watching him with her. He wants to do everything she does... and wants everything she has/wants lol.
So much whining though... So.... Much... Whining..... like right now b/c he tried to grab something Zoe was looking at and she wouldn't give it to him. Sigh... lol

DH and I are good too. Tired but good :)
He started building his shed out back and almost has it done.

I've been doing a whole lot of nothing really. Taking care of my fish tanks and trying to keep the house from looking like a total disaster... which is a struggle lol.

We're having houseguests coming to stay with us next week. It's the friends we visited in Yellowstone. They're moving and need somewhere to stay before they can go to their new place and DH volunteered our house for them to stay in.
Hope they enjoy the smell of cat pee b/c that's what the FROG smells like b/c of the stupid cat. And the sunroom smells like a giant litterbox b/c he's an idiot that scratches the wall instead of his actual litter so his poo never gets covered and ends up stinking up the whole room.
We need to invest in an automatic litterbox thing but DH doesn't want to for some damn reason.

And I think that's about it for now.
I'm sure there are a few other things I've skipped over that I'm forgetting but that can be left for another day :)
