I was sorting through the mail walking back to the house. Everything I sorted through Mason would ask if it was for him. I looked at his sweet face covered with peanut butter and said, "sorry buddy, not today." He looked up at me with his sweet copper eyes and said, "Awww, Mom, I never have any mail. I sure woosh I had a mail for me." My heart broke.
Here is my plea- Please send my kid some mail. Hey, we might even mail you back- like pen pals! Unfortunately this only applies to close friends and family who I know are not ax murders.
Just e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you our address.
I already told my Mom about Mason's wooshing. She mailed him a simple letter and she drew a picture of her, my Dad and their animals. It was perfect, just what he wanted. He has been carrying that picture around all afternoon telling stories about it.
Ok- $0.44 is all you have to cough up... Lets see what we get... You do not want my poor, sweet Mason to be wooshing for letters and not ever get any do you?

Some sweet brotherly time.
And me... Well, I spent my time behind the camera-like always!

We have been so spoiled with the lovely 80ish degree temperatures of late.
I am missing them today as it is around 50 outside.
We have been taking major advantage of the weather spending almost all day every day outside.
Taking walks, going for a jog, playing in the lake, riding bikes and the list goes on and on.
Curt's little brother has been visiting for a few days (he's 8) and so Mason has been super busy. And if you ask me playing with a big kid has made him a little too big for his pants...
I feel so lazy today. It is rainy and cold. Who wants to do anything on a day like that? NOT ME!
I might do some crafting. I definitely have to fold some laundry. Mason thinks he has some catching up to do on his Max & Ruby episodes. I think I might let him today. That's what rainy days are for, right? Miles is about to sprout his top two teeth and so he is extra cranky. I might not get that crafting in after all.
Miles is now pulling up and standing on his own (holding on of course) and his crawling has graduated from army style to all fours. He is also taking a bottle again (which is a whole other post in its self) and that makes me happy.
Curt has been busy working on the boat and trying to make sure it is in tip top shape for Memorial Day!!! That is super important when you live on a lake.
I have not been doing too much lately, not much crafting, not much of anything- except being a Mommy! I am throwing around the idea of keeping another child at the house. It has its pros and cons. Pros would be a great play person for Mason and more money. Cons would be, no freedom, keeping someone elses child, did I mention no freedom. I like to be able to pick up the boys and just go if I want too. Ahh, who knows... Maybe I will, maybe I won't.
Anyways, I am off to stop Miles from slamming the cabinet doors and make lunch for the boys. Have a great day- even if it is gloomy where you live. Tomorrow it might just be sunny!

2. Mason told me I was his "bester" friend.
3. I got to exercise every day but one.
4. Miles got his 2nd tooth.
5. Playgroup was awesome. I met so many new Mom's and that made me happy!

He is so cuddly and funny and sweet.
He has learned how to crawl ( army style) and he is FAST!
He sprouted his first sharp little tooth.

I did Shoulders & Arms yesterday morning, but I did not do Ab Ripper. I know, weenie!
I think I might want my arms to be like Michelle Obama when all of this is said and done.
Shoulders & Arms was hard, but not like day 2 with the plyometerics.
Today (day 4) I attempted Yoga X. But, a certain 3 year old monkey man kept coming and pushing me over when I was in some really hard poses. After about the 3rd time of landing on the floor with Mason on top of me, I turned it off. I might start it up again before bedtime- just because the stretching felt so good to my cramped muscles. I doubt it though. I did not sleep hardly at all last night and so I think I might go to bed when the kids do. Unless, tonight is a new Grey's & Private Practice night... Then I will stay up.... So- yoga probably will not happen tonight.
I have been doing great at my snacking in between meals. But, I feel so empty after I eat. So, I have been finishing off my meals with an extra serving of fruit or veggies. Tonight after my Lean Cuisine, I was still hungry so I steamed some green beans and ate those until I was full. That makes me feel pretty good. I have also realized that if I do not eat first thing in the morning that I eat a crappy breakfast. So I have to get straight up and eat.
My body is sore, I mean really sore. Climbing the stairs hurts- everything hurts. But, I am determined to let those muscles burn. It is a reminder- that I need to kick my bum in gear. I think Curt is tired of hearing me whine about my soreness. I am gonna try and stop whining to him, but not you all.... You like the whining!!! HA
News on the kids:
Miles got his first tooth today. Probably the reason for the crappy sleep last night. I am just guessing though. He also crawls like a champ. He is fast and he knows it. He loves the dog bowl and slamming doors and making lots of noise.
Mason just told me, " When I was a little boy, I was so hungry I ate your computer. It was so yummy, Mom!" He is so funny, I think he takes after me... HA!
I promise some pictures of the kids soon. I have just been busy, trying to get my workouts in instead of sitting on the couch and blogging.
We went shopping with Mammie and she got the boys their Easter outfits. It was a fun trip. Thanks a ton Mammie! I am going to dress them up this weekend and take their pictures out by the lake- hopefully!
I promise to try and not turn this into my P90X journal, but I hate to write by hand. So, the odds that you are going to be hearing about my workouts for the next 90 days are pretty good.

Day 2 of P90x was EXTREME!
First of all, I could not even blog last night about it- I was exhausted.
So, here I am this morning.
Sore. Sore. Sore.
I still am determined to keep going.
Determined not to take Ibuprofen, I need to feel the burn.
Plyometerics was my workout yesterday.
It is super hard, like make you want to puke at the end hard.
I did not puke.
I did want too.
Curt is going to do my workout today with me, not sure what it is, I will have to look at the schedule.
I have another confession, I am a serial snacker.
Constantly grabbing a few of this and a few of that while making snacks for Mason.
I also realized over the past few days that I snack when I am not hungry.
I just put stuff in my mouth.
What a terrible habit.
For the past 2 days at my meals if I was still hungry I would add on a fruit or something low calorie at the end.
Keep in mind I am still breast feeding, so I have to make milk for Miles.
But that does not mean I have to snack on crap all day.
I have decided that snacking is a job hazard of being a SAHM.
We live on a lake, I have to be swim suit ready in just a over a month.
Pray that I can keep with this 90 day system.
It is not going to be easy.
2 down, 88 to go.

Ok, it is official.
I started P90x today.
Now, I am telling you, so I guess I am trapped.
I have to do this.
I am going to try and blog about my journey- hopefully everyday.

Hosted by Cecily and ???
Just before I took this picture he told me that he was feeding Gabby dinner.
I am pretty sure that this dinner consisted of fresh mulch he stirred up with his whisk- pretty sure.
Then he told me that he was making me dinner.
Just a little scared and glad the food was going to be imaginary.
I asked what was for dinner- "Green Eggs and Ham!" he says.
Here he is cooking up my eggs & ham on his stove.
Can you see "it" piled up there on top of his little stove?
I just love how he keeps me guessing and how he lets me see through his imagination.
Moments like these make all the crazy moments worth it.

Mason is getting so BIG!
His new favorite thing is watching his T.V. shows on my iPod.
We just discovered this and I think it is going to come in quite handy in times of need.
Unless he wears it out while we are at home.
I sure hope not.
Seriously, how much Max & Ruby, Backyardigans & Dora can one kid take...
I mean, I may be letting him ruin his mind with too much T.V.
But I sure as heck am not going to let my kid drink soda with calories...
I am up for Mom Of Year PLEASE VOTE!

Today, I see- Mason taking his Sonic cup apart and eating his slushy with his little fingers (you know, the ones that go places they shouldn't) and smearing it all over the window...
I never thought several times a day about other peoples poop. Consistency, color, timing... Nope, I probably never even thought about my own poop.
I would not have gone in public wearing sweatpants- now they are my favorite accessory.
I was all into me, no one else just me.
I could not stand that kid in the restaurant making all sorts of noises and disrupting peoples dinner... Now, that is my child.
I felt so sorry for that Mom in the isle at WalMart with the screaming kid begging for a toy, with circles under her eyes. I am that Mom now.
I never understood why my Mom said "No" so much when I was a kid. Now, I realize it was not just an evil plot to keep me from having fun.
I never wore spit up on the back of my shoulder cluelessly... Now, I do all the time.
I was not worried about sleep schedules.
I never worried over vaccinations and if they really cause harm.
I doubted if I would be a good Mom. I don't doubt that anymore.
I never cut my foot open on a Hotwheels in the middle of the night.
I never lied awake worrying.
I planned shopping trips to the mall- now I have to plan my trips to Wal-Mart.
I would have not been caught dead in a pair of jeans that were not "some" type of designer label. Now the only design on my jeans is from an ink pen and I didn't put it there.
Using a bugger sucker- enough said.
I never knew that "Hawaiian Delight" was my favorite baby food.
I never tasted Chicken and Sweet potatoes baby food- it is not my favorite...
I never read dozens of books before bed.
I never kissed a "boo-boo".
I never listened to Barney in the car- on purpose...
I never knew what a fun an interesting ride "being a mom" would be... I definitely had my ideas on what I thought it would be like, boy was I wrong... I am glad- because this is way better than I imagined.
