The Birthday Party

Ben's very first Harley.

He also got a remote control car. We all had a lot of fun with that!

Today was Ben's birthday party. Mark and Jennifer and the girls came over and we had cake and ice cream and a pinata. Ben got cars and trucks and trains and his very first Harley Davidson Motorcycle.

Happy Birthday Ben!

Ben turned 4 on Friday. He was very excited and took treats to school. about 10:20 I got a phone call from the daycare. Ben had a little accident. He was pushed into the lego table and cut his ear. I had to take him to prompt care to check if he needed stitches. He didn't, thankfully but his ear will be purple for a while. He was very brave and didn't cry when the Dr. was cleaning it and he got a blue bandaid, and three stickers. It was a day we will always remember.

back to work

for the last three weeks, I have planned and shopped and napped. I have made lists and crossed things off one by one. I took my kids to the zoo (twice), babysat for friends, had lunch with my friends, cleaned house, bought stuff, sold stuff, forgot to do stuff and got my hair chopped off :0)

And on Monday I start a new job. When I left my last place of employment, this is not what I had in mind but circumstances being what they are I decided to go back to work. Yes, I will miss being home with Ben and Caitlyn. I will miss seeing Amanda getting off the bus and run to the house with a smile on her face and being home for her when school is out. I think I will like my new job. It is closer to home and I know I will be busy. I will have health insurance which is major. I'm still confused as to what the whole point was of the months of planning I did but I am trying not to dwell on it and just move forward in a positive way.

It was a good three weeks(which by the way I was paid for from the last hell hole) but I guess the time for dreaming is over and it's back to what is.

Playing dressup

This is one cool fireman

and the two little princesses

If you're Caitlyn, you're not dressed up until you have your tutu

It rained most of the weekend so we had to think of a few things to entertain ourselves. Saturday morning the kids played with the dress up clothes.

Caitlyn and the flower garden

Caitlyn was helping Nana in the garden.
