Mom, I think I need to shave!!

ACKKKKKK!!!!! Could the teen years REALLY be this close???

Brad went into the bathroom this morning to ( supposedly) wash his face and brush his teeth.

He all of a sudden yells excitedly "Mommy,.. Mommy - and comes running out of the bathroom.

He said I think I need to shave soon. I feel a whisker growing!

OMG!!!!!!!!!!! I so don't want him to grow this fast.

Melt my heart

Did you ever wonder how a little being could drive you so absolutely crazy one moment and in a split second melt your heart??

I had just spent a weekend where Brad was being extraordinarlily annoying. PURPOSELY trying to drive me crazy and it was working. Oh and yes it was on purpose because when John tried to stick up for him and said Oh Cher I don't think he is doing it on purpose - Brad piped up and said Oh Dad , but I am !! STINKER!

Anyway .... that night when I went outside to water the flowers Brad went into the kitchen. John asked him what he was doing and he said I am counting my money. John said for what?? He said because I want to see if I have enough to buy Mom the Blackberry phone she has been wanting.

AWWWWWW..... just when you want to strangle them they do something like that!!

I love that kid!!

Always a ringbearer never a groom!

We just got back from Florida where my niece, Ashley got married on 7/12/08. Brad was the ringbearer. He is quite the pro at it since this was his fourth performance. He was quite pleased with himself because he got to carry the actual rings again. Lindsay let him do that in her wedding and he thought that was so cool. I think it is safe to bet that this is his last ring bearers performance. He is getting too grown up for that job. Here are his ringbearer jobs in order:

This is his first time! 3.5 years old in cousin Keri's wedding. 6/15/02.

Cousin Courtney's wedding. 7/3/04. Brad was 5.5 years old.

And here is Cousin Lindsay's wedding 1/1/06. Brad was 8.

And finally his latest performance was Cousin Ashleys wedding 7/12/08. Brad is 9.5 years old.

I bet his next tuxedo will be when he goes to his high school Prom. YIKES!!!!

Meet the family!

A good place to start my blog is to introduce my family. Most of my stories will be stories about them so here goes.....

  • I have one husband ( thank god- can any woman imagine having more than one?!?!?!)
  • one son
  • one dog
This is John. We were married on 11/11/88. YUP - that really is supposed to say 1988. I can hardly believe that I have been married 20 years already. I don't feel nearly old enough for that. My reward for putting up with him for 20 years is a Disney cruise!! I can't wait to go this October. John is trying to hold his wallet shut. He is very VERY cheap.... oops I think I am supposed to say thrifty. Bottom line is he HATES to spend money.

This is Bradley! I picked this picture cause he is a total character as you will get to know through my posts. He is 9.5 years old and loves to be goofy!

One more member of the family to meet. FRED!!! How can we forget good old Fred. Somehow we ended up with another dog and here is is......

This is Winter Fred................This is Summer Fred.

Fred is quite a character. His favorite pasttime is garbage picking and sock stealing.

And here is ME!!!

I am now 40 - damn I can't believe that either. I am an Accountant in Flemington for the last 16 years. My favorite thing is doing things for my son and watching his soccer games. If there is any free time after that I like to crochet, scrapbook ( although I own more supplies than a craft store most never make it to an actual page.), read and watch a few favorite shows.

Welcome to my blog!

WOW!! I am moving into the correct century. I actually have created my own blog. It will be probably be a little bland at the beginning, but I am sure I will learn what to do. I got the inspiration to create a blog from reading Nathan Lawrensons blog everyday since January. That truly is an amazing story .. check it out He has inspired me to blog my random thoughts and capture the little things in life that I can share or just keep to remind myself of the daily things that went on in my life.
