"That's a lot of cake"

For some reason the other day S started talking about how he's had 6 birthdays and "Mommy, that's a lot of cake." I proceeded to inform him that his Dad's birthday was in a few weeks and that Daddy would be 38. His response "Wow, that's a lot more cake than 6."

Of course he then wanted to know how old everyone else was in our extended family. He was very impressed that Gma Sue and Poppy were 63, and that Momo Molly is 65. Of course he kept saying "I can't wait to have that much cake".

At least he's put it all in perspective.....birthday's aren't about's all about the cake!

Week 2 - Let's just not go there

Seriously....week 2 sucked. My tempermental scale didn't help. However, this week we're back on track....sorta....but now that the Reese's Peanut Butter Heart is gone I should be able to stay on track.

FWIW - did buy a new scale. Had to find one that could weigh us both....K will probably kill me for telling everyone this, but our current scale didn't weigh high enough to register his weight. He did weigh himself yesterday on the new scale.....he just won't tell me what the figure was. It's alright for him to know how much I weigh apparently.

Scale vs ME

Okay - my scale will be receiving it's walking papers when I get home tonight. Wed morning I weighed myself....scale said I'd gained 2.5lbs. Thursday morning I weigh myself and I'd miracously lost 4lbs from Wednesday. Now this morning I've gained 2lbs. Not only that, it's trying to weigh thin air. It's a digital read-out and it just starts acting like it's trying to weigh something.

So while we're at Wal-Mart Saturday getting Baby A's picture taken I'll be picking up a new scale....preferably one that knows I'm the boss....not it. :)

Week 1 Stats

Well - should have posted this yesterday, but I forgot and I finally had some pictures to post. SO, as of Monday, Jan 14th I've lost 5 lbs!! Wish I could keep that up through April 7th!! Talk about being ready for bikini season!! Not that I'd ever wear one......the only person who has the privilage of seeing my stretch marks is K!!

K and I are both trying Relacore - so I'll let you all know how that goes as well.

Pictures, Pictures....and more Pictures!!!

Saving this for future reference.....gotta know when T decides he wants to become a stoner like his old man.

Can't help it......mind is in the gutter, but they sure are cute. R on the left and S on the right.

Baby A on X-mas day...looking cute as ever.....yes, she's on the verge of crawling.

Has to be my favorite pic of X-mas day.....Baby A and Big Brother T. They look sooo much sweeter than they are don't they?

Baby A's Halloween costume.....she wasn't thrilled about it, but hey it was warm.

Isn't she just precious?!?!? Taken back in August when she was only 3 mos old.

Back in the saddle again

Well - all that weight I lost while pregnant with the baby girl has mysteriously reappeared. Seriously I have NO idea how that weight found it's way back onto my body!! LOL So this last Monday (Jan 7, 2008) I officially started back on my diabetic diet.

So far I've lost 4 lbs.....I know water weight, but hey I lost 4 lbs. :) The best part is that last night I slept really good. I did get up with the baby girl around 3:30am, but I still woke up feeling more refreshed than I have in a long time. Okay, I'll admit I'm still a little tired, but this week I've made it into work by 7am each day which is huge since the last month or so it's been hit or miss.

The added bonus is that even though I'm stressed about work and crap that needs to be done at home I now feel like I have the drive and energy to get it done. Which means that this weekend I'm going to put away all the laundry that has been sitting in baskets for the last month. Guess I'll hafta post on Monday to let you know whether or not I gave K a heart attack.

On a side note a department at work I help support has a contest aptly named "The Fat Off". For a $10 entry fee you have 3 months to lose as much weight as you can. Who ever loses the biggest percentage of weight wins the pot. This year we're looking at about $100 for the Women's winner with a $50 bonus for the overall winner. Hmmm.....sounds like I'll be flying up to Chicago after April 7th to visit my cousin for a few days and still have some $$ left over!!!

My new job: Tooth Fairy

S finally lost his first tooth on Dec 26th. He comes to me all excited "Mommy my tooth is loose!!!" Not 5 minutes later "Mommy it fell out!!!!!" We grabed a cup to hold said precious tooth in and proceeded with our day. That night I quietly crept into S's room.....took the tooth and left him 5 $1 Gold coins. Of course I slept in the next day (who cares if I needed to get up and get to work) just so I could see and hear his excitement.

Unfortunately we're still waiting on tooth #2 to loosen tooth is already poking through. Taking the boy to the dentist Monday to see if they need to pull it. Guess that means that the Tooth Fairy needs to restock her supply of Gold coins.

FWIW - if I ever get off my lazy arse I'll get you guys some photo's.
