Boys & Girls Club!

Braydin has been playing basketball with the boys and girls club this year. He has learned so much and loved it. So we thought that we would share a few photos of one of his games...

He has always been one of the biggest kids in his grade he is playing with 3rd and 4th graders so some of these boys are his size and bigger. He wants to be one of the little guys so bad, I have tried to explain that one day being the biggest will be great.

Men and Laundry

I just had to share a little story with you. As most of you know this past week I spent some time in the hospital and left Kevin in charge of the house chores. Well we were sitting in bed last night and he was folding the laundry that he had washed that day, and he found his pajama bottoms that I had bought him for Christmas. Instead of folding them he decided to wear them. So he put them on and then let out a gasp he yelled "Lindsee I don't remember these being so short, what happened to them." I asked him what was going on and he walked around to my side of the bed so I could see...... he had shrunk his PJ pants by 3 inches. I didn't know that it was possible. I just started laughing and asking him how he had done that, I have been washing them for 2 months without a problem and he comes in and shrinks them.
Needless to say Kevin's heart is always in the right place, but sometimes he lacks the skills to get all of it done. Nothing else was shrunk that day and now I have a great story to tell so life is grand!!!

Kevin's babysitting skills

This is what happens when mama is in the hospital for a few days and daddy is left with the kiddos!

Really I am so thankful that I have such a good husband that I can leave the kids in his care and know that they will be loved and taken care of, maybe not as clean as I would leave them but in one piece and that is all I care about!

My Sweet Hubby

I thought that I would share with you what a great man I have married. Last night when he got home from scouts Braydin ran in the house with these amazing flowers. As all of you know Valentines Day is Saturday so they where a few days early. I asked Kevin why he gave them to me early and he said "because you are having surgery Tuesday I wanted you to be able to enjoy them longer before you are in bed for a while." I thought that he was so sweet, I really did marry the best man ever...
Now so you do know that he isn't perfect I thought I would tell you what Braydin told me.
When he ran into the house and gave me the flowers he said "Dad wanted me to lie to you and tell you that they came from the flower shop but they came from Kroger." I laughed all night, then he also said to his dad "Sorry about what happened dad but that he had to tell me the truth I'm his mom and he cant lie to me!"
So as you can see I have alot of good men in my life!

Allergic or NOT

I thought that I would share a conversation I had with my boys the other day as we were driving down the street.
I have been telling them for a very long time that they are allergic to every animal there is so that we don't have to have a pet. I did tell them that they weren't allergic to turtles and that if they caught one that they could keep it, but that is another story for another day!
Anyway as of late I think Braydin if figuring things out. We were driving down the street the other day and they were both asking about being allergic to animals and Braydin said that the other day at school one of the kids brought a dog and that all the kids were around playing with it. They asked Braydin why he was touching it when he is allergic to them. As a good boy as he is - he told him that he is only allergic to the ones at our house. Then they went on in there day.
Well Braydin decides to flat out ask if he really is allergic, so the good mother I am I turned up the radio and drowned him out.
I know I will not be able to push it that much further, and I did tell them that if we had an animal that we wouldn't be able to go on trips anymore. But they tell me that Buffie is there to babysit for us.
So all I can say is YES as for now they still are allergic to everything!
