Kami has tubes!!

We went in today at 8:30 for Kami's tubes. She did great! She was back there for maybe 15 min. When we went back to see her she was screaming! I felt so bad for her. We finally got to feed her and she really didn't want it, but I also put a fast flowing nipple instead of a slow one. We got to leave around 10:45. She finally stopped crying when we were getting ready to leave. It was so sad every time she burped she would start crying again. Here are some pictures of her surgery:

Playing in the bed

After surgery Finally getting to eat

So sweet!

She is sleeping away right now. I am worried on how she is going to be feeling when she wakes up.

Getting Nervous!

Kami is going to get her tubes in tomorrow! We have to be there at 8:30. Kami can't eat anything after midnight. How can you tell a 7 month old that she can't eat?! It's going to be a very interesting morning! I believe she is going in to surgery at 9:30 it might be earlier than that but I can't remember right now. They say it should only take 10 minuets to do and when she wakes up in recovery we can feed her, then after about 45 minuets we can take her home. I am going to be a nervous wreck till she is back in my arms and fed.

Peace, Love and Becky

Manic Monday

If you were at a friend’s house for a holiday dinner and you found a dead cockroach in your salad, what would you do? Yes, I would tell her but in a discreet way.

If you could put anyone you know on Prozac, who would you choose? Hmmmm Me! haha

How do you feel about public displays of affection? It's ok only if it's kissing on the lips or cheek. But anything other than that, it's too much that's why they make bedrooms.

Christmas is ALMOST here!!! I have one more day of work, only a half a day ;) Then I am on VACATION! I don't really plan on doing much. I might hit a couple of museums and maybe even Chuck E Cheese. But the most important thing happening that week is Kami's tubes! December 29th. Can't wait!!

Manic Monday!!

Have you ever returned an item to a store for a refund after having used it? I am sure I have but the only reason I would of returned it was because it didn't work right.

You are going out for the evening. If your partner objects to what you are wearing, would you change your clothing? Yeah I would. I trust my hubby's judgement.

What item that you don’t currently possess would you most like to have in your home? Oh gosh there are so many! I big screen TV, a new couch, and a coffee table. I'm sure there are more but that is all I can think of right now.

Well today was a pretty uneventful Monday! We are 'supposed' to be getting an Ice Storm coming through here. Last night they said it was a warning that started at 3 PM then they changed it to Noon. Well because of the Ice storm warning the kids got out of school early. So I had to go and pick up the kids from school. {For those that don't know I work at a Child Care Center and drive a van that takes the kids from the Center to school, and from school to the center} It is now 7 and NOTHING has happened! Gotta LOVE Memphis! They always OVER REACT when it comes to the weather. I guess it's better to be safe than sorry. {Which in the past has happened} So me, the hubby and the girls are watching Christmas movies on TV. I am hoping that something does happen tonight so I don't have to go to work tomorrow, but then again I am not because I could use the hours.

My poor baby girl is SICK! She has been so unhappy/whiny today. We got home and all she wanted to be was held. Which is NOT like her! She would much rather be on the floor than sitting in your lap. Her teacher at school came and asked me if she could give her some medicine to see if that makes her feel better. It seemed to a little. When we got home she was the same way. Didn't want to eat her food or drink her bottle. So I gave her some more Tylenol and she seems to be doing a lot better. I guess I am going to end up at the doctors office tomorrow. I knew she was going 'make' me take her to the doctor before she gets her tubes in! Oh and we changed her getting tubes in to Monday December 29th instead of the 31st. Wahooooo!!!!

Well let me get back to my family time!

Peace, Love and Becky

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to going to Target and Walmart tomorrow my plans include cleaning and laundry and Sunday, I want to eat at my grandparents for dinner!

Tubes For Kami!!

I took Kami to the ENT {Ear Nose and Throat Doctor} for an 8 week check up. I told him that she had at least 1 ear infection since the last time we saw him and I was pretty sure she had another one. Well I was right she does have one. So he said let's go ahead with the tubes! I am so excited! I am so tired of taking Kami to the doctor because of an ear infection. I made an appointment for December 31 {I thought I made it for December 29th so I am going to call tomorrow and check on it}. We have to be there at 6:30 in the morning. NO food or drink after midnight, yeah how do you tell a baby that she can't eat?!?! The doctor said it takes less than 10 minuets to do the tubes. And as soon as she wakes up I can hold her. I am excited and scared about this. I know on December 31 I am going to be freaking out! She's only going to be 7 months!!

Look at this ADORABLE blinkie I got made! It was made by Yolanda at CrumbSnatchers

Gah! Girls These Days....

They can be and are SO RUDE!!! I pick up kids from Mt. Pisgah. And every once in a while one of them has bad B.O. So I talked to my boss on how to bring it up because I didn't want to point anyone out. She tells me to say did y'all have gym today? And go from there. Here's my convo with the girls:

Me: Did y'all have gum today?

Girls: NO

{There goes my plan out the window}

Me: Ok.......I'm not trying to point anyone out. Well when we get older we sweat and it's has an odor. And sometimes we need to re apply. I carry a stick of deodorant with me at all times. Sometimes I need to refresh in the middle of the day.

{ They start to smell their arm pits}

Girls: It's not me.

Then one girl says it's her. AND MOVES AWAY FROM HER AND LAUGHS!!!!!

I'm in shock at this time! I couldn't believe she just said that!! She tells her that she is sorry but is laughing after she said it. Gah girls these days! I had a talk with the girl who pointed the other one out and told her how would you feel if she did that to you. That's how she feels now. I made her apologize to her again. I had a talk with the other girl and told her that I was sorry that happened. It wasn't supposed to be like that. I hugged her and told her I was sorry.

I am not looking forward to my girls being teenagers!

Manic Monday!

Do you do much online shopping, holiday or otherwise? Hmmmm all the time!

Are you a Mac or a PC user? I am a PC user.

Why? I really don't know why. I guess because that's the type of computer my brother built me back in the day and just never changed.

What website do you spend more time on than you care to admit? Oh gah I have too many! Mommies in Memphis, My Blog, Ebay, Etsy My Space and Facebook. Just to name a few.

Well today has been an uneventful day.

Kami is STILL not crawling. But she sure can army crawl to whatever she wants to get to. She is so funny. She will find my shoes on the floor and make a bee line for it. I let her get to them then I take them away before she can chew on them. You should see the look she gives me. Then she sees my laptop and makes a bee line for it. She loves to close it or play on it. So if you ever get an IM or an email from me that's just a bunch of letters Kami sent it to ya! ;)

I went to the store earlier tonight and when I got home Greg tells me Kathryn found the DEAD mouse! Yes I said DEAD!! Eeeewwwwwww!!!!!! I at first thought Kathryn was playing the other day because when I went in to find the mouse it wasn't under the bed, so I thought she was just seeing things. I guess I was wrong!!

Let's hope tomorrow is going to be an uneventful day too!

Peace, Love and Becky

Saturday, November 29, 2008


OK So we have had mice in the attic for a while now. They also have been living in the garage. I have been threatening to let the cats out in the garage but never have. Well, this morning I get woken up to Kathryn saying: 'Ace {our cat} has a mouse and he's under our bed!!' EEeeeeekkkkk!!!!! So now I have Ace under my bed with a mouse. Yeah I'm not going to get it. I'm gunna let Greg get it when he gets home. So I guess we are heading to Lowe's to get mice traps. What a GREAT way to wake up!!!

Peace, Love and Becky

Friday, November 28, 2008


Yes I am posting another blog! hahaha. We just got back from left overs at my parents house! I am stuffed!

Thanksgiving was GREAT! Got to spend the whole day with my family. Greg let me sleep in {do a little dance} till around 8 {ok not really dancing anymore haha} Ate dinner at my parents. We got kicked to the little kids table because there were to many people to sit in the dining room. Kami of coarse was the star of the night. She was showing off how she crawls, army style.

Got my Christmas Tree up today! Kathryn helped me {well a little bit} Now just to get the rest of the house done. I want to hand make some Christmas crafts but I really don't even know where to start! I am looking online for some great ideas, but haven't really found anything that I am just in love with.

Ok I put Kami down about a hour ago. I sitting here typing away and I hear her talk. I go in there and she gives me the biggest smile! I tell her she is supposed to be sleeping and she just smiles at me again! I take her into see Greg and she smiles at him! I guess she's not tired tonight and is going to stay up with me. {I think not!!!} So I found her her blanket, feed her a bottle and laid her back in bed. I think she is finally asleep.

Here are some Thanksgiving Pictures of the girls!

Kathryn showing off her bruise she got at grandma's house. You can't really see it but she fell off grandma bed and hit her nightstand. It bruised immediately!

Peace, Love and Becky

1) My family, what would I do without them?!?!

2) My friends, I love them ALL so much!

3) My computer, what would I do without it?

6) Kamryn every time she looks at me with those big blue eyes and smiles.

Wonderful Wednesday

Let's see. Before work this morning I had to take Kami to her 6 month check up.{See Kami's blog for an update on her} Then when I got to work I did the assistant director thing. I am so good at making enemy's when I work 'up front'. People were saying that they had to go home. Ummm NO you don't. Lolita said it was up to ME if you could go home early. I had TWO tours back to back. I had to make the second tour wait until I was through with the first one. I was thinking it was the day before Thanksgiving it's going to be an easy day. BOY WAS I WRONG!! The phone rang off the hook. The only really good thing that happened today was Lolita clocked me in at 9 instead of at 11 when I got there and Lucia came in to close so I got to go home early!! Now I am sitting here waisting time before I go to Walmart. I know it's going to be PACKED. I think I might just go to Target. Who knows. I can't wait until tomorrow!!

Peace, Love, and CandyCanes

I'm Walking On Sunshine!!

Monday.......hmmmm nothing really much to say about Monday. Went to Target tonight and of coarse spent way to much. The really only good thing about today is at work we can now wear jeans everyday instead of just on Friday's!!

I can't believe that Christmas is 30days away!! This year has just seemed to FLY by! I can't wait to start decorating. This is really the only holiday I decorate for. I guess that's what I will be doing on Friday.

Here's my Manic Monday #143 ~

Do you ever talk to yourself out loud? I try not too. I try to keep it in my head.

What do you talk about? Anything that has been going on with work, family or friends.

What stresses you out? What doesn't lately. Money, life, work you name it and it probably stresses me out.

What are your secret talents? I don't really think I have any. I'll get back to you on this one.

Peace Love and CandyCanes.

Well I just got through with sweeping and mopping my living room floor. Let me tell ya that was fun! Hahaha. Now I am doing laundry catching up on my TiVo and just trying to be LAZY. I had a great jewelry party last night! Thanks to everyone that came. I got my mom a necklace, me one, and Kathryn a necklace and bracelet for Christmas. Speaking of Christmas I think I am going to get the girls a round chair from Pottery Barn Kids to match their rooms.

I have NO CLUE what else to get them. I know it's going to be a small Christmas this year. I think we are really just going to do Santa for the girls. They will get plenty of things from everyone else. I wish we could do more but as everyone knows money is tight. I hate not being able to do things because of no money but hopefully it will get better one of these days.

Peace, Love and CandyCanes

Jumped On The Band Wagon

Ok I finally gave into temptation! I joined a blog. Not to sure what to do yet, but I will get the hang of it.

Today has been a pretty good day. We got up this morning, got dressed, then went to a potluck with my MiM girls.

Kathryn is a MESS! She will be in my room watching TV then a commercial will come on and she will run in here and ask if she can have whatever toy they are talking about. I tell her yes she can she says 'THANKS MOM!' and runs back the to room. Then the cycle begins again.

Kamryn is getting to big. She is 6 months today {fighting back tears} I can't believe that she is already 6 months old. Kami is trying to crawl also. She was just getting up on her elbows and knees and rocking but now she is getting up on her hands and knees. It's not going to be long before she takes off. She is already ALL OVER the place. I can't even imagine what it is going to be like when she crawls. I guess I need to get the baby gate back out.

Greg and I were just talking about how when Kathryn was born we, well I, wanted a name that we could a have nick name with. So that's one reason we choose Kathryn. Well we NEVER call her Kat. NEVER. Now Kamryn on the other hand, we never even said anything about a nick name, well we only call her Kami. How odd is that. We wanted a nick name for Kathryn and never called her by one and for Kami never said anything about one and only call her be her nick name.

Well my blogging is over for now. Kami just woke up. As one of my friends says: Peace, Love and Candy Canes.
