My Mom, sister and I spent wayyyy to long at Joann's getting fabric for maxi dresses. I must say I'm pretty stoked. I love maxi dresses and would be thrilled to spend all summer in them. They are so light and comfy and fun! The pink is reversible so it will be like two skirts in one!

It's been one of those days. Where Croix just made mess after mess after mess. At lunch he emptied his piggy bank and then zoomed the coins everywhere. I told him he had to pick them up because it wasn't safe for Maizy. He had to go potty. So I left him off the hook while he went potty. My Mom called and I kind of forgot about him in the bathroom. When I remembered he had gotten water all over bathroom. He had also gotten into the soap, which is getting to be all to common an occurrence lately. I made him mop it up!
Then I made him pick up all his money.
A little while later I hear him and Maizy laughing. More soap in the bathroom. It's a little difficult not to laugh at the bubble beards and hair but I maintained my composure. We clean up.
A little while later I'm folding laundry and he just starts flinging laundry all over the house. Time out number ??? for Croix today.
After dinner I HAD to get a shower HAD to. I was sweaty and smelly and gross. Brent had already left for scouts so I said to Croix "Can you play with Maizy for a minute while I shower really fast?" I was in the shower and remembered that I hadn't flipped the top lock on our door when Brent left. and started worrying that he was going to escape out the house. I was in the shower less then 10 minutes and came out to find our kitchen transformed into a pool. He had pressed the water on the fridge until the whole kitchen was flooded. He was rolling around on our floor naked "Swimming". Maybe it wouldn't have been so bad for him to escape out the front door!
(And my floors had been mopped this morning so it wasn't even a bright side that my floors got a good mopping, they already had!)
I think I need to get a small pool for our patio!
I'm so glad it's bedtime! I'm also quite happy tomorrow is preschool! Hurray! I love that boy to death but man he can be a handful!

That's not a white undershirt, that me, my skin where I pulled down my sweater to show off my sunburn!

In the car on the way home I asked him why he didn't say the prayer in primary. He said because all those people were there. I told him they are all his friends. He told me they are not. I said oh yes they are they are all nice and your friends. "Not those big kids, I didn't ask them to be my friend" Well there ya have it. It was sweet. I hope he out grows it. But over all for a three year old I think he did pretty well. He sat up there by himself and went up to the podium with me. That is better then I've seen some kids do :)

It is bright and fun. And it has twelve pockets! What Mom doesn't need a bag with twelve pockets! I think it will be our church bag. I want to have it ready with stuff just for church, so it's new and interesting in the middle of sacrament. I also hate that every Sunday I'm scrambling as we're running out the door to find anything that will keep the kids attention. So if I have this just for Sunday, it will be all ready to go!

I accepted an assignment for our relief society activity on Thursday to pretend like we had been through an earthquake for 24 hours. Two of the conditions are no electricity and no running water. So I'm posting from my phone. I post more details about it tomorrow, from the computer. Right now it sucks! No AC AND no screens on our windows (thank you crappy landlord) is no fun!

"Mommy I want to take a nap in the car." Of course he won't take a nap in the car or at home, even after saying that.
Brent has taught Croix to sing. Paradise city. The other day his preschool teacher told me he was singing "take me down to the paradise city, where the grass is green and the girls are pretty. Oh won't you please take me home, yeah yeah."
Croix why is your shirt tucked into your underwear? Because it wants to do that.
Mommy, I need to see if the sky. Why? So I can see if the sky is falling! I chuckel, Croix the sky isn't falling. Yes Mommy, it's fall now that means the sky is falling!
Out of the blue "I love my Daddy, I love Maizy I love my mommy."
We're going to get a big big house. With lots of wood things and lots and lots of flowers.

Oh how I love the temple! I also love that Brent not only watched the kids so I could go, but when he came home said, "when are you going to the temple?" He didn't forget that I wanted to go. He didn't complain that I was leaving the kids with him. He didn't try and talk me out of going and staying to do something fun. He made it possible for me to go and encouraged me to go. It was actually him who reminded me that he had a little time off if I wanted to go! Oh how I love that man!

This little boy fills my heart to overflowing with love! Today I made us green smoothies. Brent got home right as I was finishing making them. He and Croix went into the other room. Croix came back into the kitchen climbed up on a chair and gave me a hug saying "Mommy thank you for making me such delicious green smoothies. I sure love them so so much. I love you" Then he gave me a kiss on the cheek. I smiled and assumed Brent had told him to do that. Brent came out and I asked him if he had told Croix to do that. He didn't know what I was talking about! I about died! How is this kid so sweet and cute! Oh my goodness I love him!!!
Here is a picture of him with a green smoothie mustache. When did he get so big? He looks like a little man!
I just got done posting this and found him passed out with his Book of Mormon stories in his bed!

We have really enjoyed reading the stories together. We've discussed Gospel principles. We've reenacted stories for family home evening. He has picked it off the bookshelf on his own, choosing to read it. Once when I asked him if he wanted to read the Book of Mormon he said "Yeah! The fighting one" I laughed and prayed that he was getting something else from the stories besides the fighting. We finished reading it tonight. We read of Moroni's promise to know the truthfulness. I bore my testimony to my sweet boy of it's truthfulness and my gratitude for it in my life. Then we prayed together and thanked our Heavenly Father for the blessing of the scriptures in our lives. It was a sweet moment.
Feminist is described this way.
