2 weeks until Chuck and I move into our new apartment!!!!!
Im so excited
Walking distance to everything.
it's hard to believe that september is only a couple months away. this time last year me and chuck were talking about when we're gonna try for another baby in september. honestly the place we are right now I don't see that happening anytime soon! as much as it pains me to say there's no way we can bring another life into the world right now.
Just got back from the Arden family cottage, which is in Ottawa on lake Johnson. Most beautiful place ever! Got to see my uncle Ron and aunt Joan and cousins Adam and Michael who I literally see once a year if I'm lucky. Some days I wish we were able to live closer :( so this visit was extra special because my aunt M her hubby and there 4 kids were there and also my aunt K, her hubby and there son.
So there lots of people and it was great company.
I think the highlight of my weekend was when my cousins and dad saved two baby raccoons. One that had fallen in the lake and one that was so scared it had it had its head under a rock. So Adam, because he thinks he is macho went in and grabbed the one baby out of the water, while trying to get his dog from attacking it all at the same time . That was kind of traumatizing, not going to lie lol
Then there's Michael who apparently thinks he is a raccoon whisperer, got bit. Tiny little teeth mark, but still lol his calmly saying "shhh stop it" didn't work lmao.
Adam got them both out, and put them in the Woods, were I just keep telling myself that their mommy found them and they left into the forest. Which truthfully prob didn't happen :(
Its been a couple weeks since ive blogged... Lost my voice for acouple weeks I guess and couldn't find something to write about.
But last night while on Facebook I started noticing some things. Every one talks about the need to stop bullying in schools. Last night I started noticing something.
Moms bullying other moms.
I (until last night) was a Co admin to a group that a friend of mine made, a "mom" group. Some where to discuss topics and ask questions. Which I thought was a great idea!
Until like most groups someone had to ruin it for everyone else. Shoving there opinions in peoples faces, putting down other parents and there childs developments.
For someone to have the NERVE to put down someone else's child is.disgusting. Every child is different for you to think putting down there child/parenting skills is okay just because you put "IMO" (in my opinion) doesnt make it okay.
Why do people compare me to a trucker? Or sailor?
I'm sorry that I speak my mind and that curse words are part of my vocabulary... And yes ill be the first to admit using them doesn't phase me anymore which I'll agree it probably should, but id be lying if I said it did.
But because I swear doesn't mean my points are any less true. Im blunt, sometimes to much but I like it that way. I don't do it to hurt any ones feelings. Believe me that's never my first intention. But I don't see the point in being fake with people.
So how I see it, you want my opinion then you want my actual opinion. So don't get mad at me when I give it to you. If you don't want it, don't ask me for it.
Straight and simple.
Can I just say how much I love bath time now. Well other than the facy that its a battle for ethan to let me wash his hair. But its so much fun now to see him play in the tub, he is such a water baby just like his momma :) I feel like bath time is such a bonding experience.
So Chuck and I have been together two years as of April 16th. Yes a day after Ethan was born is our anniversary haha. He was the best one year present ever!!! Lol.
But since Chuck and I have been put threw the ringer lately we didn't get to celebrate our anniversary til a month after, which isn't that big of a deal.
We got to go out to dinner just the two of us. We haven't gotten to do that in over a year!! Its hard to get a sitter for 4 kids under 5 lol. But we went to this little restaurant in town called the Massey house. Ive never been there so it seemed like a good fit.
Our dinner was amazing. Literally. Chuck is so picky to about restaurant found, he usually complains about something on it or something he would have done differently to it. So for him not to complain, was awesome.
Sitting with him in the restaurant, being able to sit and talk to him and just listen to what he has to talk about. Was nice. Being able to sit and laugh with him reminded me of why I fell in love with him.
It was a much needed weekend together. :)
So tonight at my aunt marcias house, ethan took his first steps!!!!!
I almost cried.
It was one of the most exciting things, I have ever witnessed.
Truly was a great moment, especially because we were surrounded by family who were just as excited.
So yesterday I realized how much my parents and ethan have gotten close. He is so attached to them that I don't think that he is going to cope very well when we move out. We have been living at my parents since December, he has gotten use to seeing them everyday, and he just loves them so much.
I am so grateful for my parents. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have my parents.
But, chuck and I are looking for a new place in Peterborough ( I refuse to live far away from my family )
We've been having a hard time finding a place but I think were getting close.
I just really hope Ethan will be able to cope leaving his Gramie & Grampie.
so this passed week has been interesting um ethan has started hitting and biting and scratching and high pitched scream. he just started randomly 1 day hitting on the face and now it's gone downhill and I cant seem to stop him from doing it. I know its normal for kids to hit and bite and try to get away with it, but he is only a year! And I feel horribly for hitting his hands and trying to discipline him . I've tried talking to him, smacking his hands ive even tried yelling at him. He just high pitch screams back at me.
That's another thing too, his high pitch screaming all day is driving me nuts. All day long nothing but screaming. I don't know what too do.
So I haven't blogged in like a week because I have been crazy busy and haven't been home and blah.
So Thursday my Gramme Arden , and Uncle Andrew and cousins came down from New Brunswick for Ethan's first birthday party and my Aunt Kelly's surprise 30th.
Friday we had my Gramme's pizza, which is the best and only pizza I will eat.
It's amazing. We didn't end up leaving my Aunt Marcia's until like 10:30pm because I decided to bake Ethan's cake there, and the little bears. I was so tired like so incredibly tired.
Saturday morning the day of Ethan's party, of course it was rainy and crappy all day. Just our luck.
At 9 am we had to run out to the walmart, metro and my aunt's to drop stuff off for the surprise party.
We didn't get back to the house until like 11 and I had to get started on the icing for the cake.
Talk about frustrating! I kept screwing up, then the icing would be to runny. But i got it done, it shockingly looked rather good. I had fun baking it and everything but I don't know if i would do it again. It was cheaper then buying one I guess I'm just being dramatic LOL.
There was alot of people here! Especially because it was so crappy outside, but it truly was a great time!! Ethan got alot of awesome presents. And it was amazing seeing everyone who came!!
He was so tired though, cause of all the hustle and bustle.
My Aunt's surprise birthday party was a total success!!
Had alot of drinks and some good laughs.
Loved every minute of this weekend.
Tonight my brother in law David is going to look at this townhouse for us tonight. He is going to be renting with us.
About three days ago this lady answered my ad on kijiji about a family looking for a home.
She pretty much gave us everything we were looking for.
Even the rent is under what I expected. Its a townhouse, but we can deal with that for a couple years.
Once we do find a house, its going to be our 5 year house.
I've moved 4 times in the past 2 years, and I am sick of it.
So I'm really hoping I hear good news tonight from my brother in law David.
Fingers crossed to finding our five year house!!!! :)
So what I don't get is the disrespect teens have now.
When I was a teen I was rotten, and I mean full on rotten. I was suspended from school idk how many times, got arrested moved out on my 16th birthday.
You name it, I did it.
And I still never disrespected my parents.
Then I see kids, who get whatever they want and still treat there parents like shit.
I'm sorry child, where do you get off talking like that, and expecting the world but not doing shit too earn it.
Like a 14 yr old having a iphone 4s.
When I was a teen I had to pay for things like that myself.
And they just expect a hand out.
So I'm blogging from my phone today. Only because I am in Bowmanville for the next couple of days. A thing I want too talk about today is pre teen girls.
Now this might sound rude but I don't remember being so stupid. Harsh I know.
But I sat with my cousins last night and my cousin was going on about how she is upset because she has been single for three months.
And then she started going on about her "ex" boyfriends, ex boyfriends pfff you're 15.
Then I started thinking about when I was 15.
Starting to experiment with drinking etc
And being totally obsessed with boys.
Thinking back on it now, I.think I was worse lmao.
|It was so windy|
