This was my attempt at a self-timer pic, sorry I accidentally cut out 1 or 2 people
This is one of my dearest friends...she'll go above and beyond and she's always great for an ear to vent! She's also really freakin' funny and crazy! The night ended relatively early, so we decided to hit a local watering hole to finish off the evening. Man, I laughed REALLY hard here!!
These nights out are some of the best times. Its a great way for us to vent about our kids and laugh about them as well. If you are reading this and you are a mom who needs to get out, look into joining your local MOMs club. Its a great way for your kids to meet friends and for you to meet friends. This club has been a life saver for me in SO many ways! I've made some incredible friendships that have changed my life forever. Thanks to all of you who make this club so great...I don't know many clubs that have the dynamics that we do!
On to swimming. We hit my gals house for a little water fun this afternoon and Big wee one looked so cute in these goggles. I've been experimenting with the manual settings on my camera and love the way the pictures come out.
This is what happens when a two year old opens a bag of pretzels...lol! This little lillypad is FULL of spunk! She is exactly like her Momma!
The girls have been playing so well together. I'm so happy that they truly love each other and want to play together. Big wee one has been a very good big sister and taking care of Little wee one. This morning she even got Little wee one's breakfast for her and threw away her trash. She loves to rock her at night and help put her to sleep. I love this picture because it shows how much they really resemble each other. Same exact hair color and silly little expressions.Don't you just love summer time?! We get to eat fresh corn on the cob, play outside all the time and go to the beach...which is where we are headed tomorrow. This weekend should be a fun one. We'll have Cousin A with us and we'll get to see Grandma & Grandad! Big wee one is excited to sleep in her sleeping bag, and Mommy is excited to get some sun! Hopefully I'll have a lot of great pics to post. Have a good one!
Oh, I'm gonna finish with some pics we've taken outside when the sun has been going down...we've had some amazing cloud formations and pretty sunsets, so I thought I would share :-)
This is the post that never ends! As I'm sitting here uploading and updating the 'ol blogger, I can hear Paul and Big wee one downstairs having a conversation. It's so cute! I can't hear exactly what they are saying, but she sure does have a lot to say. On a side note, her attitude has been soooo much better! I've been doing a little reverse psychology on her and it seems to be working. A friend told me that whenever they start to whine to start whining just like them and then they'll stop. Sure enough...it works! She'll start whining so I'll do it too, and she can't help but laugh! It's so funny! This week, she's been going to Vacation Bible School and she's had a blast! Tomorrow is her last day for that, and then I think we'll sign her up for a day camp at the "Y"...keeping her busy seems to be working. Ok. I'm done.

I asked Big wee one, "What did you do? Where did you put this?". She says to me, "Right here." (Of course I say Right where??) and she says, "All over my arms." LMAO! She stinks!! The stinker rubbed vicks all over her arms and I see her cheeks glistening! Atleast her nasal cavity is cleared up...lol! Kids.
He's doing fantastic, from the sounds of his emails and should be home sometime in late August, hopefully in time for Little wee one's birthday...she's gonna be 2!! How did that happen?? Anti-who...looks like he's dating someone, and they seem to have really hit it off. I'm happy for him. And luckily, this datee is familiar with the requirements that come with his lifestyle, since she's there doing whatever she does with him. Should work out nicely...I wish them luck! Hey E, you should start blogging on your worldly adventures!!! Sounds like a great idea to me!
Uncle N, Aunt J & Cousin Munchkin: just moved from Arkansas to TX, familiar territory for Uncle N. I am dying, in the worst way, to go visit them and see my little munchkin neice!! I really do miss them so much! Cousins should not go a whole year between visits :-( Here is a shot of the cutest munchkin ever with her floatation devices...teehee

He is wearing a simple sprint right now, which is half of a plaster cast that he can take off, but Monday he'll get his real cast. Big wee one already has plans to decorate it for him :-)
Speaking of. I think she's going crazy! She can't decide if she's happy or mad or funny or angry. She can't decide if she wants a drink or her shoes on or who she wants to pour her drink or tie her shoes. It is so frustrating. She asked for a Polly Pocket at Target today (before hand breaking incident), so we said if she was good she could get one. She really wasn't great, but good enough and smiling and happy...so we head to the Polly Pocket lane, pick out one in the price range that we were in the mood to spend and that wasn't good enough for her. So, Paul being the #1 dad that he is, offered another Polly Pocket option, but again...that wasn't good enough. So, she didn't get one. Oh man, did she throw the biggest fit...I took her to the side, had a little talk with her and she chilled. She walked beside me and every word that came out of her mouth was, "Mommy, can I have a Polly Pocket?"..."Please Mommy, can I have one?" so on and so forth. Nope. Not gonna happen. We made it through the rest of the store with her asking me, until we got to check out and she realized (finally) that we weren't going back to get one...life as we know it was OVER! She spent the night in her room, well...until the ER incident and then she went to C's house. I'm so tired of trying to figure her out. Little wee one is just so chill (for the most part)...I don't know if I need to give her a little more TLC with the new summer transistion of it's just an "age" or "phase"...who knows, but it stinks!
Ok, Paul needs his cast back on. Wish him luck!

I know they LOVE K, watching them, and hanging with them all day, but man, Big wee one sure is pushing buttons! And, can anyone who has kids please let me know if this is a phase...the word poopie. I can't stand it and I don't know how to get her stop saying it! Everything is poopie. "Bye Poopie!", "I love you big poopie", "Do cows make smelly poopies?", "Goodnight big poopie wishy washy poopie".
Will it ever end?
Will they be nice again and not hit or tell me no? I know it's the whole transition thing, I get that, but come on...it's not like I'm sending them away to boarding school! They get to hang with the K, play in the sand and water...hmmmm....thoughts? Anyone? Are you out there? I see you looking at me...I know where you are looking at me from, so help a momma out and give me some advice on the poop situation and how long transition will take, or else, it will be a LONG summer!
Speaking of summer time...we are officially kicking of summer with a pool par-tay tonight! Should be fun, I picked up some beer, made some brownies and I'm about to finish the deviled eggs. Now all I need is my hubby to come home from work, throw on some swimsuits and get this party started!

Doesn't she look so good there! Awwww...to be young again!
Speaking of time flying! Big wee one finished her first year of "school" at Mom's Day Out about 2.5 weeks ago. She had a great year, and a frustrating year. Definetly a year of trials and tribulations. She is not a child who likes change sprung on her. She needs to be aware of what is going to happen and when it's going to happen. Every night before bed we have to run down what is going to happen when she wakes up in the morning, and as soon as she wakes up we review what we are going to do that day. We can't do anything that's not on the list or it just messes her up COMPLETELY! It is very frustrating! She is also a grump when she wakes up, so put those two together, and she could be extremely difficult to pick up at MDO...one, because she was sleeping (sometimes) when I would come to pick her up (who decided pick up during nap time was a good idea?? anyone?? helloooo??? are you out there?? tip: it's not a good idea to pick your child up during nap time. incase you were wondering), so i would have to wake her, and thus that would lead into the whole "she wasn't prepared for me to be there part of the day", which would then lead to a mind-altering melt down, and Mommy (aka: ME) feeling like I might do something that could be potentially harmful (she better be counting her lucky stars she's in public right now kind of thing), and that I'm a horrible mom because of my spazzing child, and no, I don't appreciate the fact (says the teacher) that a lot of kids do that. It doesn't make me feel better....anywho...let's just say it was a difficult year, and I'm ready for the summer and carefree days of playing in the baby pool and eating popsicles, all with the help from my trusty sidekick...K. Here is Big wee one the first day of school, and the last :-) The first day of school, I got to pick her outfit...by the end of the year, she picked her outfits. Can you tell?? Just wait it gets better.
First Day...Last day...
Time is still flying by...
We had the lacrosse banquet on Tuesday night, along with a work meeting (for me), it was a BUSY week here in Flohr land! The season seemed to go by pretty quickly. The guys did great this year and Paul is already missing it. Usually he needs a couple of weeks to detox, but after about a week he was missing his pal "Horn" (or Hornie...whichever you prefer) and some of the guys. What a great group of kids! We'll miss the sr's for sure!
Seniors...and then the whole team. Below is a picture of Big wee one with her BESTEST friend in the WHOLE world (here lately!) Mr. C (otherwise known as Horn or Hornie)...seriously, they are best friends! And Mr. C (I like that better then the other names) is really great with both of the girls! He plays with them, which is why Big wee one has a man crush on him, and acts goofy with them...it's sweet. This is not the only picture I have of them from that night, but in the other ones Big wee one is showing him nerds in her mouth. It's kinda gross. I'll spare you.
Remember a couple of posts ago, I mentioned we were going to the zoo...well here are those pics. See, time does fly! Freakin' FAST!
Earlier, I said "It gets better"...this is what I meant.
This is how Big wee one dressed herself one morning. At least she is wearing all pink and brown...girl's got some style! hehe! Laster that day, we chalked her body.
The following pics are from the past month, which basically...FLEW BY!
Little wee one has MAJOR allergies...here she is with a completey annoying eye issue...poor thing. And just so you don't think that I don't take pics of Little wee one, I do, its just hard to get a good pic of her, whereas Big wee one is a poser. So, I'm going to do my best to pic out a few good ones of Little wee to show her off as well :-)
This is where they eye issue started. The Memorial Day parade, she looked so adorable and then the allergies kicked in. :(
Just hanging out.
They love each other...hehe, no pressure from the parents.
I don't have any pictures of this, but yesterday Paul and I played in a golf tournament for the Chamber of Commerce and had an awesome time!! It's been many years since I've actually played for meaning, let alone play 18 holes, so I was pretty proud of myself. I won the closest to the pin contest for the ladies :-) and then I won a door prize :-) We played with that Hornie guy, and Mr. Vanilla (hope you are feeling better big D!!) We really had a good time!!
Tomorrow is the grand opening of Roy Pitz Brewery which will be an all day event, so I must get some beauty sleep. Leave us a comment if you are visiting...I know I sneak around a lot of peeps blogs from way back in the day...so if you catch mine, let me know :-) Good night!
