Oi vey....

(okay so I don't really actually know what oi vey means or is actually spelled like but that's really really what I feel like I'm sticking with it.)
my son is a nutter. a mad man. a crazy. whatever your favorite description of these words are would suffice I'm sure. He has discovered a new game: pull Sam's tail-he nips ever so gently at Corban's hand to say 'watch it bub'-and he laughs and laughs and laughs. I need to rephrase the beginning of that sentence to say: he discovers new and crazy games EVERY DAY. Take for instance when I was making fudgey rice crispies (not worth the pain in my opinion)...He wanted to bake as well, so he started pulling things out of the cupboards that don't have child locks on them such as: 2 muffin tins, a large colander, a huge pot, the electric hand mixer (he even makes the little noises when he's playing with it) oh and a giant lid that makes the most horrid loud noises when he slams it on the floor. He also quite recently has to tell every one "right back" and hold his hand out as if he's going to tell you to "talk to the hand" because he wants you to know he's going to come right back. Sometimes that's all he'll do. He'll walk up to my dad "right back" (hand goes up) then walk away. He turns the corner, then comes right back and says hello. he's such a goof off. It's not that he's being really obnoxious or anything, it's just a ton of work, and a lot of cleaning because he's making messes faster than I can clean them up even if I do have him help clean up.
Oh, side note, Jack is officially at Knight Transportation. He started Monday, and loves it. He says it's stressful work, but doesn't look like it's nearly as stressful as the restaurant business. He leaves at the literal butt crack of dawn (5:45 am) but gets home around 6 so that is just stinkin lovely! we've really been shocked by these regular people hours but I'm pretty sure that we're almost adjusted.
Any who, I'm pretty sure that Corban, and Sam have me busy enough for two moms let a lone little old me. Corban thinks it's really fun to give Sam treats, or steal his treats, or his toys and I get to hover to make sure that Sam doesn't just haul off and bite Corban because it's the last straw or something. Sam is doing really really well for only being a year old (we found out his birthday was the 30Th of April) He even knows that if he steals something back from Corban he'd better just go straight to his kennel or suffer the wrath of mom. ;) well, I'd better save some of Corban's nap time to do something productive. just thought I'd vent for a min.
ps. if anyone wants to shoot me an email that can tell me how to change all the background stuff on my page I'd love to ravamp the ugliness of this page.

LOL... aren't kid's FUN!!!! At night when it is all said and done you have a warm loving feeling inside... but they sure can wear you out when they are running at mock 10!!!! Glad you have some extra help out there though!! Hope Jack's job keeps going well!! Does he work 4 12 hour shifts?

You've got some new music. I was pleasantly greeted by Zepplin when I clicked in. :)

I swear kids have stock piles of energy that they get into when they see mom's are tired. It's too much fun for htem.
