A Conversation with Ethan

Ethan has been talking about death lately and asking a lot of questions. He is going through that phase of being worried about it. Tonight right before we said our prayers, in all sincerity, he told me he wanted his head to stick out of the ground when he was buried so he could get some air. I couldn't help but giggle, but I told him we would do that for him LOL.

I pray I never have to worry about that.

A Conversation with Christian

Christian and I had a funny little conversation this morning... It went something like this...

(I am nursing Heidi)

Christian: You have two of those.

Me: (I think I know what he is talking) Two of what?

Christian: Those. (He points to my boobs)

Me: You're right, I do, and so do you.

Christian: (He pulls up his shirt to reveal his chest and points at his nipples)Ya! I do! I have two "nurses". These are my nurses.

A couple seconds go by...

Christian: You have big nurses. I have little nurses.

Ya, thanks.

A minute goes by.

Christian: My nurses are up.

(Please don't say what I think you are going to say!)

Christian: Your nurses are down.

Great. It's even obvious to my 3 yr old that I have saggy boobs.

The other day he walked in on me in the bathroom...

Christian: Do you have a penis?

Me: NO!

Christian: Do you have a butt?

Me: Yes.

He is so interested in everything right now. It is NOT FUN taking him in public restrooms. I wish the stalls were sound proof, I don't know how many times he has asked me at the top of his lungs if I was going poop. No, I am not. Then he tells me I am a good boy when I am done. Cute kid, but embarassing at times LOL!

Our First Pool Party

We invited some neighbors and friends over for a pool party for labor day and it was SO fun! We cooked hotdogs, sausages, and brats and everyone brought sides to go with it! The kids had a great time and the adults, too. I think this will be the first of many parties to come.

*I only had my camera out for about 5 seconds and I didn't get pictures of everyone. I am sad about that. I was a little busy though :D

Jumpin' in the pool

Jared the grill master and Alli and Claire (future babsitters!)

My boys and neighbor Chad.

Old friends and new friends...

Megan and some cute new friends she met on our street!

People diggin' in the awesome eats...

Jumping on the trampoline.

What a great time! I am so glad to have so many great friends and neighbors!

Rescue 911

We have only one set of keys for our van. That's all we got when we bought it. I have always been really paranoid about locking my keys in the car so I am VERY careful about making sure it doesn't happen. Until last night...

When we came inside from an errand, the door on Heidi's side didn't close. Jared locked the car and we went in the house. We didn't know the door was open. When I went to get in the car to pick Megan up from gym, the door was open so I walked right up and put Heidi inside. Usually I have to push a button on my key that opens the door for me and also unlocks the car. I didn't have to do this since the door was already open. My usual habit is to drop the keys in the driver's seat before I buckle her in. I did this and shut her door. I went to open my door and it was LOCKED!!!!!!! I couldn't believe it!!! My worst fear, locking my baby in the car, happened. I just kept trying to open the door, all the doors, circling the car and praying for some weird reason a door was unlocked. No such luck. Heidi was crying for me. That is the worst feeling, not being able to help your child when they need you. I called to Jared who was in the pool with the boys and he came to help me. He told me to get a hanger. Ha ha. Our house is in such disarray how will I find one. Well, I did. And it was PINK. I wondered if Jared would say something about it. He tried to use a screwdriver to pry the door open and I tried to slip the mangled pink hanger in the door. We couldn't get it in. We kept trying for a couple minutes and I was worried he was going to break the door. At least Heidi would be out, but I really didn't want to deal with that. I made Jared call the police station. They said they would send someone right away. Meanwhile, Jared kept trying to get in while I played peek-a-boo with Heidi. She didn't like it. Everytime I hid for half a second she screamed louder. I decided that wasn't going to help. Poor baby. Then Jared stabbed me in the eye with the pink hanger. That freakin hurt! Finally a cop showed up. Did I mention he was kind of cute? He came up and looked in at Heidi who was still upset and then he walked around the car. I wonder if he noticed our inspection just expired. He told us that the fire department had to come to get her out. Hmmm, weird. I wonder why he couldn't do it. He said they should be here soon and then said, "Oh, I think I hear them now." Sure enough I heard SIRENS off in the distance. Are you freaking kidding me???? We just moved on this street a week ago and already we have the cops and fire dept at our house. I was so embarassed! Thankfully they turned off the lights and sirens when they got in the neighborhood. Phew! The boys got out of the pool and we so excited to see the fire truck pull up. That was kind of fun. They got out and walked up, made me sign soemthing saying they weren't liable if they scratched the car or had to take the door off, and then popped up the lock and I got Heidi out. Then the thought entered my mind while I was thanking them profusely... I have to blog about this! I really like to have pictures with my blogs so I asked them to hold Heidi and pose for a picture. They thought that was so funny and they were great sports. Ethan made it in the picture, too. Christian was inside changing into dry clothes and was too slow to get outside. And poor Megan was stuck at gymnastics until the fiasco was over. I don't think she minded much.

Heidi and her heroes... I love firemen and cops!

I might as well add the first day of school pics... I have been slow to get on the computer.

The kids in the hotel the morning of the first day of school.

Ethan in his first grade class. His teacher is Mrs. Smith and she is awesome!

Megan in her fourth grade class. Her teacher is Mrs. Dunn and she is SO nice!

And my little boy is growing up and FINALLY lost his first tooth!!! He is SOOOO cute! He was proud. He pulled it out at school and the nurse gave him a cute little treasure chest to put the tooth in. The tooth fairy let him keep the treasure chest and also gave him a dollar! He said he would never spend it. I believe it!
