We went to Oma and Opas tonight for Easter dinner and and easter egg hunt. Jake is in NY for a training so he wasnt there (sniffle sniffle). Jonah loved the easter egg hunt and Tobin....well...we were just trying to keep him from jumping in the pool. Oh yeah, and he threw major tantrums for every picture we tried to take. What a punk.

Jonah turns 5!

We had a combined bday party for Jonah and his cousin Cole yesterday. Cole turned 2 and Jonah turned 5. They both have the same birthday so we decided to do a combined party. It was sooooo chaotic but a ton of fun-all of the kids were "helping" with opening the presents. Jennie (coles mom) and i had a great time busting out our cake making skills for the boys. Everything was awesome! Jonah did pretty well with all of the noise and people. I cant believe he's already 5!

No matter how clean my house it, how finger smudge free my doors are (well, they really arent), how sterile my countertop is (well, it probably isnt either); raising kids is, at times very disgusting.
Jonah was sitting in the toilet one day dropping the kids off at the pool. I walked away while he was doing his business and didnt come back (yes, i forgot about him) until i heard him whining. I quickly remembered that he probably needed help with the wiping. I came into the bathroom and was immediately overtook by the "child poo" scent and then noticed that Jonahs hands were no longer clean. He had taken it upon himself to wipe his own tooshy....without the TP!! Yes, bits of poop were all over his fingers, hands, the toilet, and his legs. Full of disgust i immediately brought him to the sink to wash his hands and cleaned up everything else. Then (now, this is where it gets even more gross) i had to CLIP HIS FINGERNAILS to get the poo out of there and re-wash his hands. It was ridiculously nasty.
A few days later i took the kids to this crap outlet mall in draper that has about 4 stores in it and the majority of it is empty of retailer and shoppers. I go there once in a while so my kids can run and wiggle and yell without it disturbing anyone, getting lost, and where i can see them all of the time. I just sit with Ireland and watch them run and run. Well, as it came time to leave Tobin began to throw a huge fit (nothing new there) and as i was struggling with forcing him into the carseat, i noticed something in his wide open crying mouth. It was a PIECE OF ALREADY CHEWED GUM covered in dirt and paper (which was surprisingly still fruity smelling) that he must have picked up off the floor and started chomping on. I immediately was convinced that he had probably caugh herpes and was dry heaving for the next few minutes.
Kids are disgusting.
