Random things

I had to take Will to the pediatrician today to check his ears. It was a follow up for his ear infection that he had a few weeks back. The ears checked out fine. But I must tell you this...Will hates it when the doctor has to look in his ears. He usually fights, kicks and cries. Today, Mr. Cow had his ears checked first and then it was Will's turn. Will sat like a champ and didn't cry. He didn't even move while the doctor was looking. I couldn't believe it. Mr. Cow will be going first from now on.

Why do parents think that it is okay to not have their child in a car seat while driving? It just is not safe and last time I checked it is against the law!!

We are trying to sell our house. We are wanting to move to St. Peters to be closer to Josh's work so that he doesn't have to spend 2 hours on the road each day. It would just be better for our family. Well, we were supposed to show the house today. The realtor called last night at 8pm to tell us about the showing. Josh and I ran around the house at break-neck speed trying to get everything cleaned, put away and presentable for the showing only to have the showing cancelled at the last minute. So frustrating! This is the second time this week that a showing has been cancelled at the last minute. I will be glad when this is over.

Caroline's school had Mommy and Me night last night. I will be posting pictures soon! It was super stupid cute!

Buster tries to herd the kids when they are playing. He nips at their ankles, never bites. It drives me nuts...but he really can't help it, it is what he is bred to do.

The kids that wait for the school bus in front of our house keep taking the fliers out of the box on the "For Sale" sign. Grrr....

There is a red car that blows through the stop sign by our house every day. And when I say "blows" through it I mean, driving about 40 miles per hour in a neighborhood with children. The speed limit is 25. I really want to video tape him doing it and turn it in to the police but I don't feel like it, it would require too much work. Should I call the police? What would they do...hold a steak out?? Yeah, right.

Buster, the dog, the dog that herds my children, yep that one! He can also open and close the screen door (it is a sliding door). When he wants to come in, he will sling the door. He pushs it with his nose. It flies back and forth and makes an awfully loud noise and it drives me nuts. Are you noticing a trend here...the dog drives me nuts!

Every time I ask Caroline how much does she love her Momma, she replies "Ten thousand eighty-one!!" Every. Single. Time. Gosh, I love her!

Sawyer hates it when he has to get his ears checked or if you get close to them. Hopefully when he is older he will have someone like Mr. Cow to help him. Good luck with all of the house selling!
