Finally, some pictures!!

yet another beautiful day today! I'm loving spending so much time outside with my boy.

We play baseball and catch. And water the trees and plants that made it from last year.

I sure do love this boy!

Making silly faces.

Blowing bubbles.

Kind of hoping it rains tomorrow so my hubby gets off work early... And to wash away to pollen!!

Loving this weather

I don't know what the weather is like where you are at. But here in NWA, it is BEAUTUFUL!!!!

Kyle has every other Monday off right now, so he stayed at home with Nathan while I went to Walmart. I took my time, and even looked outside in the garden area for flowers :) I love this time of year!! I ended up buying just a little 6 pack of bright colors Pansy's.

I can't wait till our annual trip to lowes to buy flowers for the flower bed, and maybe pick up a few shrubs this year. nathan and I planted and watered them, and Kyle even mowed the yard today!

I'm just praying for a nice mild spring and summer! I can't take another year of extreme weather!!

This whole week is supposed to be warm. I'm so excited. I hope you are getting to see some of this pretty weather too!

On the mend.

Thank goodness we are all starting to feel a little better around here. First it started off with my poor little boy getting an upper respiratory infection. I think Kyle caught it too. However, I believe I had a sinus infection. I still can't breathe through my nose very well, but I'm not feeling like death.

We very rarely get sick around here. It isn't only hard on us, but it was hard on our cat too. He is use to getting so much attention from me during the day, but I hardly paid any attention to him over the last week and half. He is so happy that we are feeling well. He is currently curled up at the end of our bed snoozing away while I type this.

YAY for health!!!! Now I'm ready for the nice weather that we should be having next week. I'm ready for some trips to the park or even just playing outside.

Today, while I was out, I decided to finally mail my sister in law her grocery bag holder that I made for her. While standing in line at the post office, I noticed a woman with two boys. One boy didn't have a shirt on, and neither one of them where wearing shoes! And I must admit, I stood there and judged her. I hate that I did, but the boys were being loud, hanging all over the counter and just being annoying. You could tell the mom felt that all eyes were on her. Well fast forward to me getting in my car, I noticed that neither boy was buckled up( they were at least 6 or 7 years old by the way) so I motioned for her to roll the window down and said" your children aren't buckled up!?" and she said " no, no they aren't" then rolled up the window and turned around and said something to them. She then rolled the window back down and asked me if I would say something to them, because they weren't listening to her.
I told the boys that my brother had died in a car accident when he was just 11 years old, and that he wasn't wearing a seat belt and that it would be really sad if anything happened to them because they weren't wearing theirs. The lady whispered " thank you" back to me and drove off.

I'm glad I was at the post office today.

I'm glad I'm the type of person that speaks up.

I prayed for her as I drove home.

A little too late

Wow, having Nathan back to his crazy self after him being sick and quiet and calm for a few days made me realize how much I've screwed up as a parent! I've babied him so much since I knew he would be our only child. And boy has it really kicked me in the butt!

After taking him to the doctor, and her pointing out that his behavior is not normal for a 3 year old, I've really opened my eyes.

He refuses to listen to me. When I try to talk to him, he just talks back to me in a high pitched voice, or just completely ignores me! I have never really been one to read parenting books, maybe that's where I screwed up, and sadly I don't have a lot of friends to get parenting advice from.

So if any of the few followers I have, have any advice for me... I'd love to hear! I'm desperate!!!
