Yesterday made CD41 and was the longest cycle EVER for me!!! I guess the failed cycle did a number on my body, because it took forever to AF to even show her face!!! So, I told my IM over the weekend that I am sure if I go out in white shorts AF would show.........Low and behold I go shopping with my big sister this morning and put on white capris....guess who shows up?! LOL. Forget the raspberry tea..... throw away the hope of knocking boots....BREAK out the white capris!!!

I'm a BIG girl now....

After I picked Talia up from Pre-K, I decided to go have a "pamper-mommy" session and get a pedicure. As I sat soaking, Talia ran over to me---

TALIA: Mommy, can I get my nails done?
ME: You can get them done when you get a J-O-B.
TALIA: But---I have a dollar! See, I can pay for my own....
ME: Oh, really? Give the lady a dollar and tell her that is how you'll pay for it.
TALIA: OK! Can I pick my color now.

good deal!!!!Needless to say and true to form, she must really have my genes, because she managed to talk to manicurist into painting her nails and TOES for $1!!!! Truly she is my child and recognizes a Talia got her first mani and pedi!!!

So much for getting up in the morninG!

1st day of school!!!

The weekend came and went and Monday passed with the stress of getting ready for school. was the day!!! My baby girl started her first day of Pre-K and was sooo excited.

The kids both got up this morning with very little urging---because they were soo excited. Talia chose her outfit the night before and was ready to don her Hannah Montana accessories!

My two little munchkins put there backpacks on and were ready to go!!!

So, the day is over and the last baby bird left the nest....

Day 3 of practice........

WOOOHOOO GO RAIDERS!!So, as hot as it is in Texas we were back at it again today. I am soo proud of my baby for sticking at this football thing and can't wait for his first game....which happens to be Sept 13!!!!!

Getting it all organized!!!

For months now my husband has been complaining about his garage and his desire to get his truck in.....but he has been unable to due to my collection of STUFF!!! Diapers, deodorants, toilet paper, paper towels............and the list goes ON!!! So, I decided to look for shelving for the garage and found an amazing deal!!!

Today Korrey and I started the daunting task of getting this mess organized

So far we've completed one side and here are the results!!!

Looks like night and day!!! OK............back to side 2....LOL

Just give me BRACELETS!!!!

His age? 7 yrs 14 days.
His Accomplishment? One tooth lighter!

As my husband and I examined Korrey's mouth we noticed that not only was his tooth VERYYYYY loose, but apparently it had taken so long to come out that another tooth had grown in under it! I immediately told my husband that he MUST take it out before something worse happens, especially with him playing football now!

SO, low and behold my husband took the old PLIERS in the mouth technique to remove it. We had a couple of tries before my husband was able to successfully remove the little bugar! Apparently all it took was a $2 bribe and talks of showing the crying video to his football buddies...LOL. He manned up and allowed daddy to yank that little tooth out. Then after all was said and done......he had the nerve to act as if he was brave the whole time...LOL. The funniest part of the whole ordeal is when his father made the comment that he will have to get BRACES because of the strange tooth. Korrey shouted "OK! Stop and just give me bracelets then!...." LOL.

Here is the TOOTH Extracting video....Enter at your own risk!!!

As you can probably tell at the end of this clip, my voice says "OMG, OMG!" Well, I had to pause the recording because it all hit me at once that my little boy LOST his first front tooth!!! He is really growing up!!! WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Here is another video for entertainment and possible blackmail when he gets older...LOL

Korrey's 1st football practice.......

Today was the first practice for Korrey's team and of course here in TX it was like 107 degrees!!! Mentally a person could not be all there with 107 degrees of heat beaming down their neck, but the coaches seemed to keep it all together! I am sure they are used to the heat anyway. Just the heat yesterday had me second guessing whether this was the right decision or not!!! Oh well, after all was over and done with, my son had NO complaints about the heat and was just as excited for tomorrow's practice as he was for the first! I guess BOYS will be BOYS!!

It's official........

He's growing up!!!!

Today we took Korrey II to get fitted for his football gear. I was about in tears just reminiscing in my mind of those days when he was struggling to walk, or crawl, or brush his teeth.........

Boy does time fly!!! And I think it's falling on me like a ton of bricks!!! At 7 years old, he told me the other day after I called him a child and told him to stay in a child's place "MOM! I'm not a child!!! I'm a little man!" LOL. So, in his mind he thinks he's past that stage in life where mommies can call you a little boy anymore.

As for Talia, today was hard for her too!

She found out that the sign-ups for Cheer leading was closed---broke her little heart!!! I went ahead a bought her a little outfit anyway from Sears ($3)....they had a massive sale!!! So now we are looking for an extra curricular activity to enroll her in. She's most interested in Cheer, but I am sure Dance will do as well.

Oh's official.......TIME FLIES!!
