The Diva Does It All!

Laura Rose and Daddy

First of all, I am all proud of my children (as any mother should) and I am amazed at how different they all turned out to physical appearance and temperament.

Rosie especially has cheeks that makes you want to kiss and squeeze and pinch because they are soo cute (and this is fact, and not because I am her mommy).

Daddy looves to snuggle with her because of said cute cheeks and well, sometimes it can get a little crazy though. He was giving her Eskimo kisses while snuggling one day and she said while pushing him away, "Daddy your nose is not roughy but the rest of you all over is!"

Guess Daddy should shave twice a day, huh?

What's In A Name??

Steven aka Tornado aka Blitz aka Linebacker aka Charmer is talking very well. Sometimes I have to ask his Ate or Kuya what he said, but it's amazing how your kid start from babbling the past 3 years to actually talking in whole sentences...7-8 word sentences. And then it's like what can I do to keep him quiet? LOL

It used to be when I ask Steven his name he replies, "Steven Andrew" and when I say, "Steven Andrew is your first name and your last name is Cole", he just huffs, turns and walks away.

This went on for a couple of months (I think) and then a few weeks ago I asked him again his name.


How old are you?


"Cole, Cole, Cole, Cole, Cole!!" he yells as he runs away from me.

I can live with that.

Bam-Bam and her Oral Report on the Solar System

Sometimes I go to the girls' room to hang out with the kids...well, the room is equipped with a 27" tv perched on top of the dresser with dvd/vcr connected to it (Mark & I decided to give the one in our room to the kids). I go in there complete with cell phone, cordless house phone, book & crochet project while we all watch a movie or tv show (I have to be doing something while watching anything...I guess it helps with my ever-thinking mind). The kids love it because they snuggle up next to me and I love it because we're all doing something together that does not require chores LOL

And to my point. About 3 weeks ago after we watched a show, the kids left to play in the boys' room where the toys are and I sat on one bed finishing my crocheting, Bam-Bam/Anne Marie comes in and starts talking to me. "I learned about the Solar System and I want to tell you all about it," she says. "How did you learn about the Solar System?" I ask. "Well, I learned it from Kuya's (Jonathan) Leap Pad actually," she replied back and proceeds to tell me, "The Solar System has 9 planets going around the Sun, the closest one to the Sun is called Me-nus." I interrupt her to say that Mercury is the planet closest to the Sun and Venus is the 2nd closest and Earth is the 3rd closest. "No Mommy, it's Me-nus!" she replied back, I then say that she probably had the first and 2nd planets mixed up and she says, "Okay Mommy." We went through the list of planets and she said, "The last planet is Pluto! But Pluto doesn't get any sunlight because the other planets are blocking the way!!" Wow, her simple logic does make sense because nowhere in the Leap Pad book does it say that the planets go around the Sun in their own pace...I thought that was soo cool what she said!!

Anyways, I explain to her that each planet has their own speed in which they go around the Sun so that they are able to have sunlight without the other planets blocking their way most of the time. Then I tell her sometimes that our moon blocks the sun sometimes so it gets dark for a little bit even during the day and the look on her face was priceless!

All in all we had about a 15 minute conversation on the Solar System.

Not too bad for a 6 year old.

I'm soo proud!!

Online Memory Journal

It used to be that I can just remember what my kids did without writing anything down, but age does get to you and I have decided to type down what my babies have been doing before that particular memory has gone down memory lane never to be retrieved :(
