Sweet Dreams

A friend of mine posted that this song is her favorite lullaby for her son, it reminded me how much I LOVE this song too...for anyone with little boys, it's sure to hit the top of  your list.

"Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)"

Dragon tales and the "water is wide"
Pirate's sail and lost boys fly
Fish bite moonbeams every night
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Sweet dreams

The rocket racer's all tuckered out
Superman's in pajamas on the couch
Goodnight moon, will find the mouse
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Sweet dreams

God bless mommy and match box cars
God bless dad and thanks for the stars
God hears "Amen," wherever we are
And I love you

Godspeed, little man
Sweet dreams, little man
Oh my love will fly to you each night on angels wings
Sweet dreams

This is how we do it...

We like to 'air' out while dining at our house! Casey who we should say is still in the potty training phase, decided he needed a potty break only to come back to eat dinner without his bottoms. For someone who is addicted to a certain cartoon I think it's safe to say, Mr. SpongeBob forgot his squarepants.

Baby Cakes

Can you just not get enough of this face? Oh my lord, he rules my world and my heart. He is such a fun kid, he's quickly working his way into our house as the melodramatic comedian. He sings along to songs and often makes up his own words. Take Adele for instance, the chorus 'Find Someone Like You' he sings out loud 'I wanna hate you!!!'

Here are a few other Casey-isms

  • He used to refer to Jayden as Ne-Nee and now he calls 'Dayden! Dayden!' throughout the house. 
  • When he does something naughty, he tilts his head to one side and says 'Sowee!'
  • He adds poopy-butt to all of his hello, good-byes and I wuv yous then laughs hysterically
  • With the help of our lovely nanny, he stopped calling his blankie 'wienie' and now calls it 'woobie'
  • He loves to cuddle while he watches Sponge Bob and sings the theme song. 
  • Like his aunt Lisa used to do, he tickles the end of his nose with his blankie at bedtime and sometimes mindlessly throughout the day. 
  • He does this cute look where he turns his head and looks the other direction like he is rolling his eyes when he potties. 
  • While he is sitting on the toilet he whispers 'here it comes...can you hear my pee Mom?'
  • Being quite bossy, he'll say 'I WANT orange juice I saiddddd'!
  • He'll tell me uh-huh over and over and I'll say Casey, stop telling mommy No! He replies..I'm NOT saying no Mommy, I saying 'Uh-Huh!'
  • He'll tell me 'I no want you go to work. I want you here wif me!' or he'll cry 'I want you!!' 
  • When he's in trouble he'll put his face in his hands and pout all the way to his room then slam the door shut
  • Any swear word Jayden says, Casey will whisper it. My little 2 1/2 year old has had soap in his mouth, lip flipped and many a time outs for his mouth. 
  • Don't worry, Jayden's not far behind. Just the other day he shoved a kid down the slide at McDonald's while yelling, 'C'mon Fatty!'
One thing is for sure, no matter how mad, frustrated beyond belief and worn out these two boys make me ~ I've never known love like I do for my kids. I love to snuggle their skinny little bodies close to mine, kiss their sweet faces, tickle their soft backs, toes and bellies. I love when they snuggle right into my neck, all the hugs, I love you's and every night book time. 

Life is GoOd.

The Big 3-1

Well that 30th year went in a blink of an eye. I still struggle when I think of myself in my thirties, even as my twenties disappear further and further into the distance. I know I'm aging when...

  • I think news reporters are looking like my age? How is that possible?
  • I see a 'kid' driving and think, he can't be older than 12
  • My Junior High building is looking VERY old
  • Sleepless nights...I use to drop my head on a pillow and be out in seconds. Now, more times than not I'm tossing and turning. 
  • I have sun spots on my chest
  • My legs, back and arms ache after not much activity
  • Um..I dare say, SEX is always keeps getting better with age. 
I'm enjoying my thirties, the boys are getting older and we're having fun together. Casey is just about potty trained. He still wears a pull up and nap and bed time. Almost out of the diaper stage for good! Jayden is finishing up Kindergarten and excited for summer and endless hours on his XBOX. I am feeling good about our progress on our yard this year. Yard work isn't my favorite and it always seems by the time I'm ready to give it a go, half the summer's gone and then what the hell is the point? So, we took advantage of a warm Easter weekend and got a head start on our yard. Big sigh of relief Ü We also cleaned out the two side of the garage, mopped and organized...makes me feel so good!

Cory took me for a wonderful night away for my birthday, we saw Hunger Games which I loved!! Headed down to Grand America, dinner at Flemings..YuM..and The Grand America's brunch on Sunday. We had such a great time, it was fun to dress up and go out on the town. Even with all the ups and downs that come with marriage, busy life with kids and work, mundane's easy to forget why you fell in love in the first place. One of the many things that Cory and I have going for us is our ability to just get lost in each other. Flemings had a great romantic atmosphere, and the two glasses of wine didn't hurt either...we had fun laughing, enjoying each other's company and doing our best to keep our hands off each other in the restaurant. I hope we are always that couple that can't get matter where we're at. 

I'm looking forward to a fun weekend in Chicago with Laurie and a week in Sunny Florida with Cory, his mom and sister for Diane's birthday!
