    My Birthday Present and DMA Kids Club

    On my birthday Ethan desperately wanted to give me a present, it was very sweet. He wrapped up a couple of things for me in one of his blankets. He gave me his stool to his art table, a box of wet wipes, and an empty box of Girl Scout Thin Mints.     We also attended a Kids Club Event this month at the Dallas Museum of Art. It was to view the Eliasson exhibit. If you didn’t get to the museum to see it I think you really missed out. I didn’t get to take many pictures and I’m sort of kicking myself in the butt for that.…

    Super Why

    In this house we are big lovers of Super Why It’s a show that comes on PBS kids and the characters use “the power to read” to solve problems. They enter books and as they travel through the story and solve the problem they find super letters that fill in the blank to make a message. Lately, we’ve been playing Super Why around the house. I make something up, print it out, then write numbers on the backs of the letters and on a piece of paper for Ethan to decode the message. It’s been a hit!! I wish I had a picture of the one that we did last…

    My son, the theif

    On Saturday Craig ran in to an ATM at a Shell station to grab some money before we headed to Kids Club at the Dallas Museum of Art. When they came out I could see Ethan had something in his hands and was ecstatic about whatever it was. That lasted the length of time it took for them to walk around the side of the car and Craig to see that Ethan was holding something. Craig took it and told him it was stealing. He still didn’t understand that he had done something wrong. Craig was already heading back into the store and I opened my door and told him…

    I don’t know if I’m late to the game but I saw this web site in Parents Magazine. StumbleUpon.com It is called a discovery engine instead of search engine, like yahoo, google, etc. I signed up and am going to try it out, so far I have seen a neat recipe site (I should have bookmarked it now that I think about it) and a history site. If you join look me up, melgriffin03 This is from their web site About StumbleUpon StumbleUpon helps you discover and share great websites.

    My Blackberry

    Several years ago I had a blackberry and I loved it but it kept breaking so I traded it in for a normal flip phone. Well for Valentines day Craig and I got Blackberry Curves. I think we have both fallen in love with electronic equipment. I can Facebook, check in on my mom boards, surf the internet, watch TV, listen to the radio, listen to an mp3 player, take pictures, take video, upload and look at Picasa, read a book, and play games. Craig, being a very loyal P1, even streams 1310 the ticket. Oh and I love Google Maps on it. I will never have to ask Craig…

    I sometime feel Ethan has been pushed to the side since Emerson has come along. We haven’t done that but with Emerson around he isn’t the center of attention and well babies take up a lot of your time. I can’t believe how big he has gotten. And as of last week Ethan is weaned of everything. The last place Ethan was weaned from was the bed. We bought him a bed last May and put it next to ours. Craig was all for Ethan sleeping on his own until we got the bed and he ended up sleeping on that bed with him. Well last week Craig decided that…

    Raise The Roof

    We also hit up the Science Place (actually the Museum of Nature and Science but it will forever be the Science Place to me) and saw their new exhibit Raise the Roof I really enjoyed the exhibit but I think Ethan was more excited to see the Dallas Zoo – they had a table out for a teacher event that was going on.

    Emerson's Birthday

    On Emerson’s birthday we spent the day hanging out around the house. For breakfast we let her try some donut holes. She wasn’t to sure about them at first but she jumped right on board.       After that it was time for presents. Craig feels like we jipped her because we didn’t get her very much but I think we did fine. It was less than a month after Christmas and I felt like anything more was just going to be too much.   Grandma and Grandpa also came over for dinner and the kids had lots of fun spending time and playing with them. We had spaghetti…

    Is it soccer season yet

    We were all ready for soccer season to end but now we are ready for it to start back up. Ethan has started playing soccer all over the house and Emerson is joining in. He likes to pretend that he is Coach Rick. It’s pretty funny to watch. He yells out “It’s a great day to play some soccer”. Then goes to town playing.       If you have a child that isn’t old enough to play soccer yet but is interested in it you should look into Mesquite Instructional Soccer.

    Well it has been awhile

    I have really been neglecting my blog so I’m about to play catch up. I’ve been in a bad mood lately so I guess that is probably why I’ve been absent. I hate to drag everyone down with me so I tend to go internal.
