Fever...you give me fever

Marvin's got fevers. He is so tired and listless. It scares me, but oh so relaxing, good to know something slows him down. Was so cute to see him and anastasia napping on our bed together, with Lucky. Made two big pots of soup. Marvin wants everyone to know he is 4 3/4. He's bouncing on my lap and just got his appetite back. He just ate some chicken, rice, 3 eggs, part of an apple, juice, popsicle, and now says he's still hungry. That's more than my bony boy eats in one day. He's playing now so he must feel a bit better. Not so warm. Thank goodness. Anastasia has her own toothbrush now for her two little sharp teeth. I am not liking the teeth! As you can see I have the cutest baby in the universe! According to my mom I was cuter. According to the pictures I am not so sure. Marvin wants everyone to know he is good at doing puzzles with 100 pieces. Marvin get your own blog. His butt is bubbly and he needs to take it to air care he says. Good night Moon and Venus too.

Just finished this good book, quick read. It really reminded me how much our Heavenly Father and Savior loves us and are waiting to bless us. It brought back all the times of difficulties when he truly did embrace me with his love. -What is there about a hug, about being held close by one whose affection we crave, that means so much to us? An embrace can erase fear, overcome anger, heal hearts, and foster love. And while we generally think of a hug as being a physical gesture of affection, the author points out that a true embrace encompasses much more. Just Hold Me! offers a unique look at an age-old custom and discusses some of the ways we experience “hugs” in both a physical and spiritual sense. With wonderful insights and practical applications, this little book reminds us that when times are difficult we can turn to the Savior’s embrace.

what for?

What an exciting day! Marvin was putting his tongue through a hole on his train engine with real smoke with leaking batteries. Now he's screaming like a banshee. Not sure if he got a shock, a burn or is just scared by my reaction. Little boy...Anastasia definitly said mama today. Imagine Marvin didn't say it until he was 1 1/2. Still only wants to kiss her daddy. How nice a daddy's girl...

A day in the life of me...

Little boy is eating a gigantic bowl of muligrain cheerios. We're watching Rescue Heroes. Billy Blazes has a broken foot, due to some heroic act I suppose. "Mommy, can you put the words for the deaf people on the screen please, I know where the remote is."-marvin Lucky and Blue asleep on big bed. Daddy gone to work after he ate and played with baby. Unfortunately while playing with baby he left her unattended on the big bed. Guess what happened?! Her face is a bit bashed up. I hope she wakes up later. Jess came over last night so we could go on a date, but it didn't work. Anyway we had fun with her and she helped me fold clean laundry of which I still have a mountain of. After kids asleep drove Jessica home. Was telling her about this cool book I remembered reading about a reporter who disguised herself as a teen and went back to high school. Then she wrote a book about it. In the 50's I think, found it in my Nan's basement, maybe belonged to Aunty Sherry. I told Jess then we could do grade 12 together, would be so fun. HighSchool was so exciting! This time I could study my brains out and learn learn learn and excel in between changing diapers, making baby food, going to preschool, cooking, singing, grocery shopping, washing dishes, wait I just don't have time for studying. I'll just sleep in class and make new friends and wear strange clothes. Maybe I could write a book too. Better take English again then. Wait there are editors, right? Poor Nano had her wisdom teeth out, visiting from Kelowna until the weekend, reading break. Hope I get to see her again before she leaves. Aimee turns 13 this weekend. Scary, she's a teenager now. Cool. I really needed to ESCAPE last night. I finished making dinner after a long, exhausing, fufilling, and challenging day with children and then ran out the door. Dropped by my mom's to see her in her pajamas then went to library to p/u Dr.miseri's book. Suddenly remembered my wallet was still at 7-11. Memory is mush. Ran into a strange beatle freak from church named Roger, loves the beatles. Is in love with his married optician. Has no phone, neighbors doing crack, feeling psychic, and out of place in this world, compounded by knee problems....Marvin do you really need to sit on my lap right now? Oh you want to push the space bar. Aching left neck, wasn't it cold last night, beautiful day today, must get dressed and fed. Blue's two teeth are really poking up now. "Momma what are the words at the end of shows that say everything when the show is done?"-marvin Credits, I tell him, telling who made the show. "Showing who peed and pooed on the show?" -marvin He's obsessed with his bodily functions. What is that about? Maybe I can do some more laundry. Seriously thinking of becoming Vegan. Still wearing yesterday's underwear under my pajamas, need to brush my teeth. Blue's new shoes are on the way. So exciting, wish I was a baby! Glad it' s Friday, didn't get much sleep. Some day. Might try to make ganache torte today or take a train ride. We'll see or I could do more laundry that may Never get put away. Must work on watercolour Brotherhargreaves dropped off for me to Copy by Monday. Good luck, need to work on my drawing. That Tower of Babel is pretty fascinating. After I came home from driving Jess home Pat was still up. We had a few laughs and kisses and shared a peanut butter bar. He gave me a drawing he made at work of 3 dead roses in a glass wine caraffe. It was so sweet. It said: I wanted to let you know I appreciate the time you spend so we can live our life in harmony. And even though we're both needing a little more energy, I can still look at you with a smile in my heart. Love Pat. Incredible. I am very blessed. The baby monitor broke and he went to Chevron to buy a 9volt battery. When he came back I was surprised they had it. I figured it would've cost about $5, highway robbery, it was $6.99 plus tax. Brutal. We watched CSI and went to bed. "Everyone in that world is a bunny, right mom? And they can talk. Isn't that funny?"-marv Must surgically remove my son from being glued to the babysitter/treehouse, why do children like to sit so close to the screen? I remember trying to look inside the screen to see more of their world, but it never worked.
Do you like my blog? I guess I don't need so many details, my life isn't THAT exciting but pretty close. I'll keep it shorter next time and wait until I really have something to say.

Love is learned mostly in the home
