Silly Problems...

Someone explain to me...

- Why do the twins let me kiss them up to six times, but the seventh time annoys them? Worry-not. I found a solution to making these heartbreakers give me what I want. I tell them not to kiss me and then they do... so much for teaching them to do what I say. Why listen... when they can do what I say NO too? (Little rebels) (So my kids)

- Is there a hypnosis thing going on in "The Wheels on the Bus" song? These two cannot get enough of it. At first it was annoying and then we started using it to our advantage: whenever we want to have adult conversation we put on a playlist on YouTube on the TV and we chat. We don't even "hear" it anymore. But it does go round and round...

- Why do the last 15 lbs I have to lose love me oh so much? WHY????
Why must it love me to death so much so that it refuses to break up with me?... Okay, so I have a soft heart and whenever I feel my fat feeling a bit sad I do give a bit of goodness to cheer it up, but come on! Crushing its feelings would be too mean, right? RIGHT? I know I have to do it, I know. I just have to toughen up and take control. (So not fun!)

What silly problems do you have?

Dah Fun Place!

No, not the bedroom. Stop it.
Not Disney either. (Though, I want to go) (I've never been) (I know!)

Dah Basement. Our basement.
We've made it our playroom. (Again, stop it!) We figured when we were pregnant with the twins, I obviously only mean me (but you try telling Jeff that), that we wouldn't be able to go out often. Little did we know that it actually meant almost never. So we worked hard to finish it up. Okay, so that actually means Jeff and my brother worked hard to finish it while I supervised. I did a good job too, I even got the eye rolls supervisors get along with the "talks behind my back." (I take my jobs seriously)

We put up a bar, a bookshelf for me 'cause I love to read, the laundry area, a 120 inch screen with a projector, and a pool-slash-ping pong table, the computer center, and the Xbox Kinect system.

Well, we hardly use it o_0
We don't go down much with the kids because there are too many things I fear they'll run into (and they already have upstairs to put toys in every single space they find), we don't play too much pool or ping pong because we figured its there and we can play whenever we want... and so that reasoning hasn't helped (also the kids love to steals the balls). The computer? Sees us rarely... we have our phones and laptop upstairs. The Xbox kinect? Well, that was played the most only one night but by my nephew, nieces and sister-in-law. We do make use of the screen, though. By that I mean, we have it in the box unopened, and instead of using it, we  enjoy our movies straight on the wall. What? Don't judge... it looks fantastic! On most Saturday nights, we put the kids down and run downstairs to watch a movie.

So much for plans... but hey its there and if we ever get too bored we can just go downstairs and figure out what kind of fun we can have there... (go ahead and think what you want at this point)

Me thinks Summer is finally here.

I'm really not sure though, as soon as you get used to not wearing a light jacket and dare enjoy fifteen minutes of short sleeves, the wind picks up and shows you who is boss. And then? you freeze to death. Okay, not to death but if I don't give you a bit of dramatic flair, how am I supposed to get your attention?

I've heard the ice cream truck on and off for the past month and half and that is just confusing. Once they start driving around and teasing me with the music they should not be allowed to take days off. That being said, I don't actually go out to buy ice cream. The last thing I need is two little devils angels giving me hell begging looks to get them some of that goodness every single time they hear that magical sound. Basically, I'm training them to not know what the music means... while I suffer in silence o_0

We, by "we" I mean Jeff, got a used swing/slide set for Noah and Natty a few weeks ago but with the wild weather of too hot, kinda too cold, and rain uncertainty they kiddos have enjoyed it only about three times. I can't wait until I can take them out with no worries to tire them out for them to have fun. We are ready for Summer... but not the too hot kind. Can't have it all, I know. But, my solution to both the heat and the ice cream music is to munch on ice (who needs extra calories?) while I'm outside with the kids. And don't worry (mom) the kids have plenty of ice cream, promise.

And yes, we had to wear sweaters because of the wind. Boo!
