"You are not in charge of me!"

I promptly put Leah in time out after she yelled at the top of her lungs "I am not going to eat your dinner! You are NOT in charge of me!"
Actually Leah yes, yes I am .
Then she screams " and you are not in charge of daddy eeda(either)!!
I replied, "no, Im not, because daddy is a grown-up and you are a kid."
Yelling once again she says, "I am not a kid!"
"Well then, what are you?"
(she is sobbing) she replies, "Mom, i am a people."

And I know you are OBSESSED with medicine, but its probably not a good thing if you offer to give the neighbor kids some cherry Nyquil. But at least you asked the mom if you could administer the medicine. Good job.

Oregon part I- The Beach

Matt and I were able to take a roadtrip to Oregon to visit some family and play at a beach house! Matt's bro Joe and his wife Nikki were awesome and provided a great beach house, yummy food, good laughs and a psycho cat. But good thing they have the most loveable dog who my kids thought was the highlight of the trip, next to catching snakes and swimming in the hot tub. Although the beach was a little colder than i am use to, it was still so gorgeous.

Oregon part II- Murdock the Beloved Dog and family

Oregon Part III -Friends

We were lucky enough to meet up with some friends who use to be next door neighbors and now are tree huggers. I love that I can see these wonderful people and be able to pick up where we left off. I love you guys!

Dont let this smile fool you because this child has major attiTUDE! Where did my sweet-swinging-arms-happy-go-lucky-worships mom-child go?
I do realize that she cannot say any words and her vocab is limited to taradactle- (sp?) like screaming, but give us a break child!
The latest development, besides her deafening screams, are: biting me anywhere she can sink her teeth because she thinks its funny when i tell her NO, pinching me anywhere on my body, chucking food for fun, climbing up the bunkbed ladder, having absolutely NO fear in the swimming pool and last but not least, she lays on the floor (usually in church) on her stomach and kicks and pounds her fists while screaming..usually for no apparent reason.
And this is when she is totally healthy. She has had a cold this week so imagine this behavior while being extra clingy and whiney.
Thank goodness for motherly love that helps me endure through all of the chaos.

I didnt know that I was a Deer Whisperer!

Unfortunately this is the only picture I have from Girls Camp. But it was such a blast.
