He is an official preschooler

I can hardly believe it, Isaac has just finished his first week of preschool. He absolutley loves it and cant wait to go back. So far so good with the new punishment. He has got his blankie back and is so in love all over. Baby K is doing great and is starting to have a great routine, now if we could just stay home long enough to let her have a nap....................I dont think so you are just going to have to roll with it. I have some awesome new pics but will have to wait again as I am still having problems, going to best buy to fix it tomm. Chloe has trimmed herself back from the desserts and am actually trying to get her to eat more. Ever since she has started school has really curved the appetite. My newest problem with chloe is wanting to have friends over EVERYDAY. Now I know she gets this from me and my need to be with friends on a daily basis, but I am getting tired of her asking everyday. I think we will get the hang of kindergarten soon.......................... I hope. I just cant believe how much life is changing with chloe being gone all day, and isaac and I can go whenever we wont no more naps. I guess that is how it goes, you just get one way figured out and then everything changes.

Like a blow to the gut????

so i have decided to try some new discipline with my children. i get to the point where i feel like i am disciplining for the same thing over and over, and i think we better try something new or some kids are going to have some sore bottoms. So that is why I have decided to hit them with the goods. Tonight it was Isaacs blankie. For those of you that dont know isaac this is very tramatic for a kid who carries it so much you would think that it is a growth coming off his body. So Isaac has serious issues with wanting to dump everything and have his hands on everyone else's stuff. It is driving me crazy, like when he dumps all of your brand new detergent, softner, and stain stuff down the drain. Or dumping all the shampoo and bubble bath down the drain(oh yes those were new too). The other problem he is having is hitting, and I have gotten to the point where I think I might be leaving marks and maybe spanking him is not going to teach him to stop hitting other kids. So after two very frustrating days he has officially gone to bed without his blankie. There were many tears, but I think fell a sleep from no nap and to much crying over his blankie. He is allowed to have it back after a full day of not doing any of these(does anyone think this is to much for a three year old to wrap his brain around????) For chloe it can either be not listening or to bossy. So we really hit her a hard one and took away desert!!!! Oh the poor child will live, in fact she could probably live a couple days without eating(I sure hope dhs doesnt read blogs, oh wait I may already be marked by to many trips to the emergency room c/o Isaac) So I will let you know how it goes, nothing ventured nothing gained!!! oh and I am still having troubles with downloading pictures, what does it mean when it says try reconnecting the device or replace the device(you have got to be kidding I just paid $200 for the camera and for the first time in my life i am actually taking pics) WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE!!

MY BIGGEST FEAR............came true

So I took Isaac and baby k to kent park to go swimming at the beach. Sooooo much fun everybody was having a great time. We had been there for about two hours and baby k was getting hot so I decided to take her into the water, bad idea I come across a WATERSNAKE. For those of you that dont know me I am deathly afraid of snakes, then through in the fact we are in the water its swimming and I have my newborn baby in my hands. Needless to say we decided that would be a good time to get going. I took some pictures but they will have to be posted later, having troubles with loading them again.

Back to School

So it is official Chloe has started kindergarten. No tears were had just some very excited people. She was very quick to tell us the rules and that they go to recess three times a day. She also informed us that she will be packing her lunch everyday(very suprised by this she loved school lunch last year, but she is a woman and I'm sure she will change her mind.

I would like to report that Isaac has stepped up to the plate as you can see and he even cleaned her off. he said that she told him she wanted to go to the movie theater again. Isaac it a huge fan of the movie theater and baby k has actually attended 4 movies already. Keep up the good work son!!

So I just want to say that the last blog I posted had some major spelling errors, but if you could give me the benefit of the doubt I was nursing and blogging at the same time. Yes I have found it to be a great time to get computer stuff done. One thing all should know about Isaac is that he loves to get dressed all by himself, every morning, even down to his shoes. Most of the time it includes something superman or spiderman. So my little sis decided she didnt want to be left out and some how managed to squeeze into isaacs pjs. Yes she wears a 7 and he wears a 3, it made for some great laughs.

Chloe, my precious

So I realized I havent written about chloe very much, this is b/c she is my easiest child at the moment. She is just a gem to be around. She will change baby ks diaper on the spot, watch her while I have to do something, and is very attentive to her surroundings. She will be starting kindergarten in one week and I have mixed feelings. She is very excited b/c she is miss social bug and loves to be around others. Im going to miss my little helper, im hoping isaac will step up(not very likely).

Does this look like an innocent face to you? When I came upstairs to go to bed the other night this is how I found Isaac. Oh yes that is a whole package of bandaids. Got to love him!!

So here is the newest upclose and personal of baby k, she did sleep through the night again but has yet to do it again. We still love her though and cant wait for her to do it again.
