Another word from Dave the Mutilator of Words!‏

So my son and my husband were over at a friends house looking at his high definition TV. Dave asked the question that almost every guy would ask but you know Dave he has his own style. The question was "how many pickles does your TV have?" You know what he meant! Pixels! I had to share! it is just so funny! He is smart! he just says the wrong word when he means another, sometimes I think he does it on purpose to make us laugh! Love you honey! lol TTYL :O) Love CuzImaMom

My little Demolitionist!

I don't know if that is an actual name for a person who demolishes things but that is what I am calling her now! I am not sure why she is doing the things she keeps doing maybe she gets bored when I am busy doing other things, like cleaning up her previous mess! The other night she got into her big sisters strawberry body lotion and smeared it on the kitchen floor. can you guess what happened... I will just tell you! I slipped in it, landed on my well cushioned behind! Hard! I am fine, but what a nice surprise the sweet smell and slippery coating all over my butt! lol Gotta keep laughing! I am gonna share some pictures that tell the whole story! Not the lotion story but other recent demolition events! Enjoy! :o) TTYL

Silly Me

Silly me I forgot to tell you the name of the flower! How helpful is that!? Well it is the Foxglove. Sorry about that and if you are wondering what the heck I am talking about well you will just have to read the posting below this one "Shealeah in the yard" :O) TTYL

Shealeah in the yard

Here are some pictures we went out and took today. The flowers I planted last year are doing well I need to plant more as you can see I have some space to deal with! The flower in the pic by itself and the one Shea is touching is very pretty but deadly, I did not know this until my mother in law told me. So I watch Shea very closely whenever she gets near it to make sure she does not try to eat it! She hasn't tried to eat any plants lately but I am still going to be very watchful! Enjoy the pics! TTYL :O)

Night Terrors

This posting is for my future reference and for anyone else who may need this info. My sister Heather always finds the info that she needs and it is very helpful to me also! Below is my comment to her posting about night terrors and also her original posting.

Heather thank you for sharing that! Devin and Krissy were both restless sleepers! They would Talk in there sleep and sometimes walk! Now Shealeah seems to have a night terror situation going on! Yesterday she did not take her nap and finally it was bed time and she fell asleep with in seconds of getting into bed and I would say with in the 90 min time she was screaming or I should say crying hysterically and we could do nothing to comfort her! I took her into the living room to rock her so Dave could sleep and she still seemed very upset after a little bit she seemed more alert and responded to me so I decided to go to the computer to play her favorite youtube video= the yummy funny gummy bear video, she loves it and cheered her right up and we went back to bed with no problems after that. We are going to talk to our doctor about it too. Let me know what your doc says and I will do the same. Love ya sis Hang in there! Love your big sis :O)

Night Terrors

I hadn't heard of night terrors until our old neighbor Kelly Wallin (who is going to medical school) mentioned to me that he thought what I was describing about Madi sounded like what happened with their daughter Brinna. It's scary in the middle of the night to hear your child scream out as if they are in so much pain. The times I've been awake and heard Madi going into hysterics in her room I've gone in to try to comfort her or to find out what's wrong. She doesn't respond or if she does she can't tell you what's wrong. It's very nerve racking trying to figure out if she is bleeding somewhere or what to do for her. Brett told me that he had this when he was little and it freaked his parents out. I would have to agree 100% with that. We haven't talked to the doctor about it because I didn't think it was something that could be helped or was even that big of a deal. I mean people have nightmares and she doesn't do it all the time. Last night just after Brett came home for lunch (at 10:30PM) Madi started screaming. She just kept saying ouchie but wouldn't tell me where. We ended up putting some of her medicated skin lotion on her and giving her a benadryl. We thought maybe her skin was itchy. You kind of just pull out all the stops and try to assess the problem. She then let me rock her for about an hour. I just looked night terrors up on WebMd and this is how they describe it. I just think it's good information to have and I am going to bring it up at Madi's next doctor visit.
Night Terrors:
The sleep disorder of night terrors typically occurs in children aged 3-12 years, with a peak onset in children aged 3½ years.Sleep is divided into 2 categories: rapid eye movement (REM) and nonrapid eye movement (non-REM). Non-REM sleep is further divided into 4 stages, progressing from stages 1-4. Night terrors occur during the transition from stage 3 non-REM sleep to stage 4 non-REM sleep, beginning approximately 90 minutes after the child falls asleep.Night terrors are distinctly different from the much more common nightmares, which occur during REM sleep. Night terrors are characterized by frequent recurrent episodes of intense crying and fear during sleep, with difficulty arousing the child. Night terrors are frightening episodes that disrupt family life.An estimated 1-6% of children experience night terrors. Boys and girls are equally affected. Children of all races also seem to be affected equally. The disorder usually resolves during adolescence.Night Terrors Causes Night terrors may be caused by the following:Stressful life eventsFeverSleep deprivation Medications that affect the central nervous system (the brain)Night Terrors Symptoms In addition to frequent recurrent episodes of intense crying and fear during sleep, with difficulty arousing the child, children with night terrors may also experience the following:Tachycardia (increased heart rate)Tachypnea (increased breathing rate)Sweating during episodes Unlike nightmares, most children do not recall a dream after a night terror episode, and they usually do not remember the episode the next morning.The typical night terror episode usually begins approximately 90 minutes after falling asleep. The child sits up in bed and screams, appearing awake but is confused, disoriented, and unresponsive to stimuli. Although the child seems to be awake, the child does not seem to be aware of the parents’ presence and usually does not talk. The child may thrash around in bed and does not respond to comforting by the parents.Most episodes last 1-2 minutes, but they may last up to 30 minutes before the child relaxes and returns to normal sleep.If the child does awake during a night terror, only small pieces of the episode may be recalled. Usually, the child does not remember the episode upon waking in the morning.When to Seek Medical Care Sleep disruption is parents’ most frequent concern during the first years of a child’s life. Half of all children develop a disrupted sleep pattern serious enough to warrant physician assistance.In children younger than 3½ years, peak frequency of night terrors is at least 1 episode per week.Among older children, peak frequency of night terrors is 1-2 episodes per month.If your child seems to be experiencing night terrors, an evaluation by the child’s pediatrician may be useful. During this evaluation, the pediatrician may also be able to exclude other possible disorders that might cause night terrors.

Bad Grandma!

I have been a bad grandma and not posted new pics of Elaina so here are some of the new ones. Krissy took these. I think she did a really good job!

Devin being a goof

Thought I would share some cute and kinda funny pics with you. They speak for themselves!

Meet Torch

Meet Torch the mascot for our AF2 team The Fever. Shea still is not sure what to think of him but this time she showed some interest, so Dave took her to meet him. I think her body language says allot. She wanted a closer look but no touchy! In a earlier blog post I mentioned that we sat behind a grouchy woman and I dreaded sitting behind her for the whole season because she told us she was a season ticket holder. Well she wasn't here this week and we had fun! I hope she lied or found better seats. Did I mention They won this game? their first win this year! Yeah! TTUL :O)

How Things can change in the blink of an eye!

Devin was driving with some Friends coming back from a fun day at an amusement park. A deer jumped in front of him and he slammed on the breaks missing the first stupid deer but swerving away from the one that he knew he could not avoid, he hit it trying not to hit it head on. These are pictures of his Friends car after. Devin was devastated this is his first accident, we explained to him that he handled it very well, it could have been worse. He feels bad that it was someone Else's car, it could have happened in any car to anyone. I am glad that the car owner is not angry that would have made things worse. They are very nice and wanted to reassure Devin that this is one of those things that just happen. They got him back in the drivers seat to take them home. I am glad for this because I know if you don't get back in the saddle you may develop a fear that can cripple you and make you more afraid. I am so glad everyone was safe and not harmed. To bad for the deer, but maybe it was the deers time to go, just wish it would have chosen another method! :O) Deers are stupid that's why we eat them! I stole that line from one of the passengers in the car. :O) But this all made me think of how quickly things can change, In the blink of an eye! I am so glad tho that everything is gonna be OK! TTYL :O)

So I know that I am starting to sound a little obsessed I wanted to let you know, Heather and Bethy, That I have completed reading the Twilight saga and I actually have read books 2,3, & 4 twice! I wasn't sure if I told you that yet and I also read what Stephenie put up on her website for Midnight Sun It was so great, I love Edwards point of view! I hope she does the whole story in his pov I don't think I am the only one who feels this way Krissy would love it too! Here's to hoping! Please Please!The whole story all books, just to clarify that! I LOVE Twilight!! TTYL :O)

Leave me a note!

I am not blogging as much as I should. I have been thinking about not blogging anymore but I will keep blogging for my sister cuz I know she comes and reads my sometimes weird stuff. She is the only one who leaves me a note. But I might go Private so if you want to continue reading my stuff and you don't let me know you wont be able to read it anymore. So leave me a note! I need the morale boost! :O) TTYL I hope!


Sometimes you witness it ,sometimes you receive it, sometimes you just hear about it, but we know it exists! I just wish that it was an all day long, everyday kind of thing for everyone! Can you imagine what the world would be like if it was? I could! It would be Heaven on Earth! I really want to be the kind to be kind! That sounds funny but you know what I mean! I think about this all the time and now it is time to start behaving this way, resisting that urge to snap and lash out at anyone who intentionally or unintentionally offends me. That's my thought on this subject just thought I would share my thought, maybe we could get it to spread! :O)

I have always been mystified by dreams. Mine of course, and when I hear about other peoples, when they share theirs with me, I am just as mystified! My hubby had a weird and I think funny dream, not to long ago. I will tell you now I think it came from that Little place we have inside of us, that little place were our insecurities hide! So his dream was pretty much me leaving him for another man or just leaving him. I am not completely sure on that detail, but anyhow, in his dream I was at this mans house and he went to get me back. The part I think is funny is that it was his Uncles house, that is funny to me and it is really weird! Your mind just pulls all kinds of weird stuff outta no where, you know what I mean! Dreams are really amazing they can wake you up heart pounding and you don't always remember what it was you were dreaming of! Twilight came from a dream and I am so glad Stephenie Meyers remembered it! I have wondered if she was pregnant at the time cuz I had some very amazing vivid dreams when I was pregnant! Something else funny I had a bit of deja vu when I saw Twilight and again when I read the book, that was weird! I feel sometimes like a familiarity with Stephenie, like I understand exactly what she means, weird I know! Another weird thing is sometimes I feel like I have premonitions. It is another story I will have to tell you sometime, the one I remember the most is the one I had September 10th I will never forget that restless night! I am just blogging to blog I guess! Silly me ! TTYL :O)

Some people Amaze me

Some People Amaze the Hell outta me! So we went to a Tri cities Fever game tonight, that's our AF2 Team the Fever. AF= Arena Football. They are not doing so good this year but that's another story. So we are at the game in our usual seats and the seats in front of us our empty so a friend of ours stops by to visit at the beginning of the game and of course he will move if the seat owners come and they do it shouldn't be a big deal but the woman gets all huffy about it. So our friend returns to his seat after she was rude and she never gets over it. We go to these games to have fun watch our team hopefully win it is always a loud riot! We love it but this woman is not having fun so I guess she wants to make sure no one is having fun. She turns around to my teenage son and tell him to knock it off and he is being really annoying, What?! We are at a football game it is loud and I am sure we are not being as annoying as some beer drinking idiots I have seen! She goes on to say he has been annoying the whole game! So I tell her we are at a game and we are having fun rooting for our team and That we can do that cuz that's what goes on at football games! This grumpy hag keeps at it then she calls us trashy people my son says did she just call you trashy and I say not to her to him and I am sure this is not the best rip but I say no she called herself trashy cuz it came outta her mouth! she turns to say something more to my son and my husband tells her stop talking to my son and he was mad but he did not call her any names like this immature cow was. She tell him why don't you go get another beer and That's when I lost It and Yelled as loud as I could so she knew I wasn't just gonna sit back and shut up cuz she told us to, I said He doesn't drink beer! why don't you just turn around and leave us alone! Then I said to Dave I hope she isn't a season ticket holder because I can't stand to sit behind someone who thinks they can boss the world around! Then she heard me cuz she had nothing better to do but listen to other peoples conversations and she told me that she was as season ticket holder. Man! Sucks for her cuz we are not shuttin up! No Mam! We got plans she gonna love my father in-law cuz he can be really rude ex specially when someone is attacking his family! I just had to vent this all out! Tell me what you think was I trashy? I am gonna get a T-shirt that says trashy and proud of it! TTYL
