We finally got all the webkinz! :)

Well we finally got the last webkinz in the mail today. I received two out of the three on Monday and have had to control myself until now to give them to the kids. lol The boy has been grounded this week for some horrendous behaviour so I gave him the stuffed animal today, but did not allow him to set up his account online. This was a lot harder than I though it would be for me I feel badly for him, but know this is how it has to be!

He has been good and tried really hard to control himself since being grounded so he should be good to go tomorrow as long as he does not have any issues tonight or in the morning! **Crosses fingers**

Kids and growing up too fast.

So we are eating dinner tonight and out of nowhere starts a conversation about a little girl in Princesses classroom. Princess says "Bailey was tardy today" and I said well sometimes people are running late. Princess says well she is always late and I was like really why? Cause she has to get all pretty Princess tells me. lol

So I ask Princess what do you mean and she says "Well she always has to find the perfect clothes and put on her makeup".

Now that is when my ears perked up and went WHAT!? She wears makeup I asked her? Princess was like "yea mom she wears makeup everyday". Turns out this girl who is seven yrs old and in the first grade wears makeup(lipstick, blush, eyeshadow) to school everyday!! Oh and this is the same child who has a cell phone even though her parents pick her up she does not walk home or ride the bus.

Ok someone tell me I am just being a prude and judgmental, but who does that let's their seven year old wear a full face of makeup everyday to school? Not to mention the cell phone do not even get me started on that....

So what do you think this is ok?

Are you one of those moms?

Growing up

Life is so confusing right now. Trying to rid yourself of the negative forces takes much more work than I had anticipated. You will have set backs, you will do things you know you are not supposed to do. I guess in this whole thing I have to teach myself how to have some self control and be the person I know I should become and desperately need to become.

It is so hard to say all this because honestly I do not want to grow up and do the right thing. I want to live every moment in the moment and as if I do not really understand what is happening. I had a momentary set back yesterday and now I am even more confused than I was before. I knew better than to stop by and talk to him or see him or even really think of him.

What was I thinking to get myself wrapped up in all this?!

I was warned that this is the way it would turn out!

Why didn't I listen?

Why must I always fall in love with the men who are unable to give the things that are the most needed?

And now some goldfish.....

So Jordan came home today with a slip asking if he could take home a goldfish at the end of the week from school! He really wants to get one and talked me into it pretty quickly. lol So we are going to be getting two goldfish at the end of the week that are going to be part of our crazy household! We will then have 2cats, one snake, two fish and 4 people living in our house!

What am I getting myself into now? I think part of the reason I am going to let him have them is that when I was in the fifth grade my parents let me bring home a pair of rats from school. So I feel like this is now my turn to be the cool parent. Plus how long can they possibly live! lol

I am sooooooo incredibly excited!!!

I finally went and bought myself a new vacuum cleaner!! I have had the other one for about two years and it was DEAD! I had to take all the hoses etc apart and clean it out before I used it each time!

IT SUCKED HORRIBLY!

So I went out and bought a pretty purple Dirt Devil at Target! Here is a picture of it! Oh and did I mention purple is my favorite color!! lol

Flarking lice!!

Princess came home Monday with a note saying that someone in her class has lice!! Oh.My.God.No!

Nice so according to the note I should not even check my children's heads, but just go ahead and treat them as if they have it. Ok so this is my first experience with lice since I as a child, my children have never had it. I am clueless as to how to make it go away although I do know about the shampoo. lol

After much researching online I have found that I need to wash everything that is in close contact with our heads in hot water and vacuum. So I have stripped the bed downs and taken the extra blankets off the couch and chair to be washed. Vacuumed the whole house and I am trying to figure out what to do with the stuffed animals?! This afternoon when the kids get home from school I will wash their hair with the lice shampoo and do mine while I cross my fingers that this is all I need to do!

PLEASE wish me luck that this is easy to get rid of and if you have any advice PLEASE send it my way!!! Welp off to do more laundry! **rolls eyes**
