Preschool

image

The kids had a blast at their 1st day of preschool walked in like a champ took off without a goodbye. Had to hunt them down to give them a kiss goodbye.
Went to pick them up and when I finally got micahs attention and told him we had to go now he said “aw man!!!” But when I told him ge can come back tomorrow he was OK with that. 🙂
I asked trin what she learned today and she told me “I learned the letter l is for lion and the letter c is for turtle” trin I don’t think that’s right. “No I promise” lol she tells me “the letter c was next to the turtle.” But trin that doesn’t mean turtle starts with c. She’s thinking “hmm…CA CA cake…cake… hmm” She’s also very excited cause she was “the only good listener…well and the other kids but not all of them” she also got to be @ the front if the line “the teacher told everyone to line up behind me!!!”
The teacher said they both did GREAT for their 1st day. I’m so glad they are enjoying themselves.

P.S. we found out last night trin has a loose tooth. Micah is almost more excited about it then trin. He’s yelling “the tooth fairy’s coming!!!! She’s gonna bring sissy a present!!!! I have a loose tooth too!!” He doesn’t like the idea that he has at least 2 more yrs till he gets a loose tooth. Lol

Motherhood

MOTHERHOOD
I carried you in my womb for nine months… felt sick for months with nausea, then watched my feet swell (and even disappear), my skin stretch and tear; i struggled to climb stairs, and got breathless quick; i suffered many sleepless nights. Then went through pain to bring you into this world.
Then, I became your nurse, your chef, your maid, your chauffeur, your biggest fan, your teacher, your helper, your prayer warrior, and your BEST FRIEND. I struggled for you, cried over you, hoped the best for you, and PRAYED for you.
*stolen and slightly modified.

I think I need to frame this and hang it in my kids room as not only a reminder to them but also a reminder to myself of what the 2nd half reminds me to be.

I’m ba-ak

So the last time I posted what in July and man have things changed.

For starters I got a job! Oct 4th was my 1st day on the job. It took a few weeks before I no longer wanted to blow everything and everyone up that ever had anything shipped to them or that lived on a dirt road. Dont worry Lossings my love for you stayed true. 🙂 I work at GSO “the best overnight package delivery company in the west” (its what our claim is call 8003225555 and hear for yourself lol) the hours are pretty short and the pay is good I just hate being a working mom. I love my job its fasted paced, always changing, and a lot like race whats the fastest and most efficient way to get this done and I don’t a boss breathing down my neck I use my own car and when I’m done I just head home its great. But I HATE not being with my kids. I’m not the mom who needs to have a job to get a break from kids. Do I need breaks? YES!! but not a 20 hr a week break that gets me up at 6 am.  I hate not being with them when they 1st wake up when they are sweet calm and cuddly. lol I dont know how career moms do it the long hours at work, the school/practice pick ups and drop offs, the school projects, family fun activities, house work and cooking. I just dont have it in me.

second I cant remember if I blogged about this before but Daniel got laid off in about may-ish (idk anything anymore my brain is goo) anywhoo daniel now also works for GSO doing a pm pick up route so I get home anywhere from 1pm -230pm and he leave at 230pm-3pm and gets home around 8pm. when of course we are all getting ready for bed. not much FAMILY time anymore. This is also something I dont know people do. I know of tons of people who have the alternating parenting/employee schedule as their spouse and its horrible in my opinion. Daniel works Mon-Fri and I work Tue-Sat we have 1 day together that doesnt involve one of us heading to work. Also we only have one vehicle now. When daniel got laid off we had to have my brother in law take over the payments on daniels truck. hopefully we will get a little beater when we get our tax refund. fingers crossed its not too much of a beater and is actually helpful. 🙂

In sept our roommates moved to Oregon when he got a job up there after a long and hard search in cali with no luck.  Our lease is up in March and unless we get better paying jobs we will be moving. I dreed moving and lord help me if the kids beds give me any trouble I’m burning them and the kids can just sleep with us!

which brings me to my next point (no I’m not pregnant thank God) Daniel worked on a damage for HCI right before Christmas it was as he was hired by some other company tella something cuase if he was to work for HCI again it would take 6 weeks for paperwork and all that good stuff and they needed him just 2 hours so he “got a job” with tella something and off he went 24 hours of work and done. 😦 but it was SOO helpful! we are hoping for more work to come in like this or to get rehired with HCI or EVEN BETTER get the ATT job he applied for on friday. Hes applied with them before and never got further then the “thanks for contacting us we’ll keep your resume on file” point but he got one step further this time and we are waiting to hear back. I think he should call or contact them in a few days just to keep himself at the top of the “list” so to say.  If he did get the job with ATT it would just be temporary like 4-6 months but it would be$36 an hour which is almost twice what he made with HCI (i know taboo to talk about how much you make but poo on taboo I’m excited!) And hey you never know sometimes temp becomes perm so lots of praying going on over here.

If/when we move we will be staying in or near elsinore. we like it out here and its not really added much travel time to our normal everyday fun and stuff with our peeps in riverside. UNLESS of course its during rush hour then we are SCREWED but luckily most things dont happen around then so we are good. lol

Christmas was so much fun this year nothing too big or wild and crazy but just plan fun and heart warming. like I said before daniel was working right before christmas he worked christmas eves eve and christmas eve but they were from 6pm to 6am so he made it home just before the kids woke up and we had a WONDERFUL family christmas in our own place for the 1st time it was AWESOME! the kids were so grateful and joyful. we had to remind the kids a few times that they needed to open more presents. I’m sure this will change as the kids get older but I really enjoyed it. side note my desire for next yr is to do that 3 gifts thing its 1 gift they want 1 thing they need and 1 thing for them to share. and thats it. I will not accept anything else. LOL we just have so much stuff and I’m almost a hoarder so I have a hard time getting rid of things cause “hey look they still play with it” and also why spoil them take the money you have spent on them and put it in your savings account lord knows this countries going down the toilet.  but seriously if I could get the extended family to obey this life would be golden. Trin kept saying “its gonna snow then its gonna be christmas” we had to keep reminding her we dont get snow in SoCal but we’ve been having surprisingly cold weather so secretly we were praying it would snow on christmas even if it didnt stay as long as it feel from the sky but allas it didnt. 😦

It was fun having the kids birthdays in our own home this yr made things so much easier.

I got a new phone cause the tmobile guy sucks and didnt try to get my “broken” working again. after buying a new phone outright (nice commision for mr tmobile) daniel did a quick hard restart and got it working again. LAME SAUCE!

ok I’m just rambling the kids are up from their naps now so my attention is elsewhere.

kids cartoons

so today while watching The little Mermaid with my kids and remembered singing along to every single song and one moment with my dad popped into my head. One day while singing along to Les Poissons (one of my favorites) I remembered my dad saying “you shouldnt copy everything you hear. You dont know what he’s saying” to which I replied “its a kids cartoon it cant be bad”.

So I looked the lyrics up and translated them via google. I ❤ google by the way. so heres what it said.

Les poissons, les poissons=fish

Ah, mais oui, ca c’est=which my guess is it meas Ah , yes , it is

toujours delish=Always delish

Zut alors=shucks!

Quel domage=what a pity

all sounds good right? yeah not bad until we get to this Sacrebleu!=damn or a multitude of other profanities. whoops guess disneys been tricking kids into cursing for many years. Sacrebleu is said in The Aristocats, The little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

Waytago Disney shame on you.

birthcontrol

So i’m looking around at random stuff on the internet and one of the things I’m lookin at is CalWorks and on there is a link that leads to this info

Abstinence 0 percent
Depo Provera Shots 1 percent
Sterilization 1 percent
Contraceptive Patch 1 percent
IUD 2 percent
Vaginal Ring 2 percent
The Pill 3 percent
Male Condom 12 percent
Spermicide 18 percent 16-21 out of 100
Diaphragm 18 percent
NFP/FAM 21 percent
Female Condom 21 percent
No Method 85 percent

why i care about this you may ask. well I care because we use condoms. I dont want a 12% chance of of getting pregnant with a child that has a 50% chance of having trins birth defect. guess we are going to have to go with Abstinence! who wants to tell Daniel? I sure dont.

glimps take 2
