3. When you go to a store or fast food place, and the person trying to take your order or money, speaks very little english!!!! And the same goes for customer support people, I'm already ticked to be on the phone on hold for hours, at least get me an english speaking and understanding agent.

Fishing and Fairies

The kids went to JCPenny last week and had their pictures taken. It was a fishing and fairies special event day. It feel very close to monkey's nine month mark, so I did his 9-month photos that day as well. I love our photographer. She has taken our family photos since monkey was in my belly at 32weeks. (Which most of you know means she has seen us about once every other month:) I'm going to post the 9 month pictures and then go back to some other shots since the beginning.

On another note. My Avon business is actually doing pretty well. I'm getting new customers about once a month or so, and it's nice to be able to order stuff that I like at a discount. I have also started a new discount. Military receives 15% off of their order everytime! I support the military 110% and I thought this would be a good way to show them that I'm thankful for what they do for me and my family. My father is retired Air Force, and the hubby also was in the Army for a couple of years. So if you are military, spouse, retired let me know and when you order you get 15% off! Thanks!

Busy couple of days

Well Thursday night Princess had a friend spend the night, and Friday morning was getting off to a great 7:30 am start! lol. I was cleaning the house and getting everyone ready for the bank and grocery store trip. Yes with four kids, I know I'm crazy! Around 8:15-30 I started to dress Monkey, I was on the phone with my mom at the time and he was making a weird grunting type of sound. We thought he was just playing around at first, but it continued. Then he started turing red and would not stop, the sound got louder and louder. I called 911 and the amblance got here and said his oxygen was good, etc. They took him by ambulance to the hospital anyways to get checked out. It ended up that he has bronchitis. His airway was having spasms. It was very scary! So now we are home and he has antibiotics and is doing fine. It was the scariest thing and I hope to never have that happen again, but fyi, I thought it might be helpful to have an "emergency bag" like when youre pregnant you have a bag ready towards the end for the hospital stay. Something like that. I am going to put diapers, wipes, passies, formula, bottles, snacks, toys, etc. And always keep it by the front door, because when this happened I had no time to get anything together. Luckily I had some family that met us up there and could get us what we needed. But that might be a good idea to have one ready for your family, you may need to get out in a hurry, and that wouldn't be a bad idea to have.

Saturday Speed Racer flew out to his dad's house around 11am. He was happy to go, and made it there safely around 12. I'm sure he is having a great time with his family up there. His dad has some fun things planned for him this summer.

the hubby and I worked hard in the front yard yesterday. We decided to take on a new project, and here it is. Hope you enjoy the pictures
