New Blog!

I've ignored, kicked, and pushed this blog around for a while. Now, I'm just leaving it and starting a new one.

I'm not selling on Etsy any longer and having a craft-centered blog just didn't make sense since I'm not crafting much these days.

I'm just getting started so give me a little time, but you can follow me here: http://truthwithdirtontheirfaces.blogspot.com/

Zombies and Care Bears

A couple days ago. Lauren went with me to get Stas at school. Since all three kids were across the back seat, the conversation got fun.

Lauren: I'm the Queen of the Care Bears.
Stas: I'm the King of the Zombies.

They got to gigging and being silly. Then from the backseat, I hear:

Lauren: Miss Beth, does Stas always pretend he's dead?

I look back and Stas is sprawled in his seat with his tongue lolling out.

Lauren: When you are my husband you will always love me but I may not always like you.
Stas: *huh*
Lauren: When we have a kid, we will name her Laura.
Stas: We can name the boy Boo Boo in case he says "boo" a lot.
Lauren: What about Monster? We can name him Monster Boo.
Stas: Ok!

The talk goes to making a party upstairs. While Stas and Lauren were making plans, Bohdan was trying to get their attention.

Bohden: Wo-Wen (Lauren), Wo-Wen, Wo-Wen!
Bohden: Me go party too?
Lauren: (in her best Mommy voice) Yes, Bohdan. You can go to the party too.

After we get to the house, they all go up to play. Stasiu said something about pretend play.

Lauren: That's a good idea Stas, I can be in charge!

Dr Who Mr. Potato Head

If you remember, I did a post a while back about Dr. Who and Thomas the Tank Engine and how my husband and oldest like to freak me out.

While at Downtown Disney, we went into one of the numerous toy stores there. They had these tables full of all kinds of bits and parts for you to stand there and make your own Mr. Potato Head.

What does my kid make?

Yes, that is a gas mask.

Busy, Busy, Busy

It has been an exciting few months around here. I've been busy with my new venture. I am now working here:

Yes, I have taken my pre-licensing classes and have a few more to take, but am a working Real Estate Agent. I'm very excited about this venture for many reasons!

We took the kids to Disney, along with some very good friends of ours. The two big boys, Stasiu and Lucas have been best friends for years. The little boy, Bohdan and the girl, Marialice are sweethearts. We had a wonderful time with all of them. We did Disney, Animal Kingdom and Downtown Disney. I will post more pictures in the coming days.

Bohdan started speech therapy. That in itself isn't remarkable. What is remarkable is that he took one of his tools, his flute, and jammed it up into his soft palate. Yes, we had another emergency room trip. And yes, one of the on-call physicians recognized us. I wonder when we get our frequent trip punch card?

My oldest started soccer again and is about to finish kindergarten. How in the world did I end up with such a big boy?

This is his pirate pose, by the way.
