Nothing really to say

But Jason is gone, my kitchen is as clean as I can get it and I'm about to vacumn my floor.

Today was operation "Don't put Baylie down for a nap so she'll be begging crying to go to sleep at 6p.m." And IT WORKED. I had to shake her a bit when I picked up Luke from school, but by 6:15 so was out. Yahoo for me cause Jason is at a work party tonite til late and I needed a smooth sailing night.

Had a conversation with my sister Courtney that had me almost peeing my pants, but thankfully I don't do that any more. TMI, I know, sorry Brandon. I love my family. Getting kinda bummed we aren't going anywhere for Christmas and no one is coming here.

Don't ask me how many cupcakes I ate today. I was 'saving' some for my family that never got to them. Really good cupcakes from shmancy fancy place... my favorite is vanilla on vanilla. Totally worth it. I heard the calories don't count if no one sees you eat it, right?

Am I the last person who hasn't seen New Moon yet?

Turns out little Miss Paisley was an expensive baby to have.

Does anyone else think So You Think You Can Dance isn't as good anymore? I'm scared to admit it, but last nite was a doozy. Why did Mia Michaels leave?

And what qualified President Obama to win the Nobel Peace Prize, don't quite understand that? I thought they were like really hard to get or something like that. Didn't he just deploy a bunch more troops?

If I can figure how to get my kids to stop fighting I want a dang Nobel Peace Prize.

Maybe I shouldn't tell Darby I'm going to sell her if she hits her sister again. But I'm running out of ideas. Seriously girl! I told her thats what little sisters are for is to mess stuff up, but that doesn't mean she is supposed to hit her. I think I'm the last mom who is dying for her kids to be tattle tales instead of duking out the situation themselves. How many times I say, "Just tell on them! TELL ON HER!" Here is another standard line, "If you tell her on her she gets in trouble, but since you just hit her, NOW YOU GET IN TROUBLE TOO!" Sheesh.

Finally figured out to avoid a big fight trying to get Baylie in the car faster than a snail. MAKE IT A DANG RACE! Amazing what that girl will do if you say, "On your mark, get set....GO!" Sheesh, how obvious, why didn't I think of that forever ago. Secretly I think it was divinely implanted there cause angels were tired of hearing me yell "Get in the Car, Right now!" Now I"m like, "Okay, in five minutes we're going to have our big Race to the you want to practice racing right now?" We'll see how long it lasts.

After much discussion with my fellow newly four kid moms, I think I've realized what its like. My work load has greatly increased, while I have remained the same...with one less arm at times. I would love to know what more seasoned moms think. Are woman not the most amazing multi-taskers in the world? But seriously, my laundry is out of control. This classy gal in my ward said something pretty funny. She said something to the effect that her goal in life now is just to see how much work she can get out of her kids. I might just have to adopt that.

But seriously sometimes I just think it would all be so much easier if we just lived closer to our families. Why didn't we think of that?

Your really scaring me about having #4 in March! I think 3 is hard and considering 3 and 4 will only be 19 months apart I'm sure to be DOOMED! Family does help though. You guys should pack up and move back out here to the great Dothan! If not maybe I'll just steal your mom to help me!

Ah Brooke, how I love your blog. I love your posts. I love your writing. I love your thought process. I love your thoughts. You make me smile. You make me laugh. You are real. Hey, you're a celebrity! Arianne Campbell in my ward reads your blog and she's never met you and she thinks of you as a celebrity and loves you. Anyway, I feel the same way. I think you're pretty amazing.

I, too, haven't seen new moon yet, and I also think that SYTYCD is not exciting. I actually only watched it this summer but I loved it, and now it's on my dvr and I don't feel any pressure to watch it. We're thinking about baby number four and it's the first time i've thought...whoa...are we really ready for another baby?!? And we do need to live closer to families. Someday.

You are cracking me up!! I just got caught up on your blogs and i dido everything. I am feeling what you are saying. Kim says you need to write a comedy mother book and call it do the opposite of what you are feeling. You are going to make me cry though. I wish we all lived close by. But just remember what you told me--the first year stinks but it will get easier. And you are doing a great job. Sorry Jason is working late lately. Ps. I am sure you heard Roly is gone:(.
