I feel like I am being a sucky mom. My mom barely ever played with me, and while I DO play with Dylan a lot, I feel like I could be doing more. I need to get off of the computer and just BE with him. Mentally, ya know? Ugh, I was just laying in bed thinking about how in July Zach will be a year old, and oh my Gosh, he was like, just born. And then I think about how fast Dylan has grown and how every single age seems to have been better then the one before..I feel like he is growning up too fast. It's only gonna happen once, and I don't want to look back when I'm 40 and be like...my kid is grown now...what was so important on the internet. I mean I know I need Val-time, but I just feel like maybe it's been too much lately. Ugh, I have made this resolution before. WHY CAN'T I KEEP IT?
So, Dylan had his first friend's Birthday Party today. It was at McDonalds. I have been a little bummed that all of the other Moms were significantly older then me, and I am not very comfortable just going up to people and introducing myself, I was scared that we wouldn't have anything in common. But I figured out the obvious today, we do have one thing in common: Being Married with Children. It was so obvious I don't understand why I was so afraid before. So I finally started talking to some of the moms and now two of them have my phone number and we're gonna set up play-date (which I have never done before) We all found out how old each other were..and even though they all thought I looked young no one guessed that I was only 24. The next youngest there was 29 (she has my #) But its weird I so don't feel old, these women feel like they are real "moms" because they're as old as I ever remember my mom being. I don't know, its weird, its not like I have a young life-style or anything, I don't go to the bar or drink or do drugs so I should feel the same..its just my personality is so "fun" that I don't think I'll ever get "old" But I feel better now, after talking to these women I realized that I can have a relationship in one way or another with a few of them. I was so nervous about today that I couldn't sleep last night. I feel so much better (it didn't help that most of these women know each other either from church or last year when their kids were in 3-year-old Preschool together) anyway..I guess I'm all grown up now..time for Soccer Games and Bake Sales...hee...well at least hopefully I'll stay the "hawt" mom for awhile..I gotta start exercising so that doesn't go away.:D
The Kidney Stone:
The Kidney Stone is born in your Kidney, it likes to hang out there for awhile. Then it grows up and wants to leave home. It decides "I want to move to the Big City: Bladder!" During its travels from Kidney to Bladder you experience much pain in your back on either side (depending on which Kidney the stone was born in).
Once it's made its new home in Bladder it realizes it can't stay and gets evicted..at this time you experience horrible pain in your lower abdomen which lasts about an hour...you finally have to ha Then you have the worst burning pee of your life, at which time you are relieved that all pain is gone. All of this happens over a period of hours (you can never tell if Kidney Stone is a slow mover or not)
Then you are relieved for a time...until you remember that when Kidney stone was born..he had siblings.
So, Dylan started Pre-school a week ago. He goes to the Lutheran School in our town. Now, Dylan is 3 (almost 4) and for the last year or so, we've been saying prayers before bed. And last Chirstmas I tried to tell him why we celebrate Christmas, now, I knew he wouldn't understand, I was just trying to lay the foundation to this conversation.
So, now he's in school and learning something new about Jesus everyday. This has made a couple of intersting discussions for us.
After his second day of school I asked him what he had for a snack, he told me crackers and water. I said "Oh,yeah?" "Yep," he said "But I didn't get to drink my water because someone took it." "Who?" I ask. "Jesus." he replied.
now, I tried not to laugh but when I said "Oh, Dylan Jesus didn't take your water from you," he said very defiantly "Mom! Don't laugh, He did!"
The next time he went to school he told me this: "I have a hole in my stomach and God is in there..."
Ok. Then yesterday I was trying to get him ready for school and he kept falling on the ground so I said "Dylan stop it." And he said : "It's not me Mom, God is pushing me!"
---so, it looks like God and Jesus have replace his imaginary friends Jome and Josh, and now they are the scapegoats for everything.
Oo..small story, this just happened: Dylan and I were at 7-11 to get Slurpees and when we walke in 2 Cops were standing there. One of the Cops said hi to Dylan, instead of saying hi back he says defensively: "We're not Bad Guys."
This is so weird, I just read my last entry, (man it was a long time ago) and the "wish" that I had came true! That makes me so happy. KF, Dylan and our new edition Zach are living in our dream house and we are so happy. I really should write here more.

I haven't been writing lately because I've been really sick. January 9th is the beginning of my Second Trimester so maybe I will be feeling better by then.
I thought this movie had some strong points and some weak points.
I hated Danny Huston's performance. I liked Nicole Kidman's performance. The kid was just o.k. There were a couple of things that flawed the movie to me. If you read KF's Journal you will see why. I was a little bored so I didn't love the movie as much as KF did but it wasn't bad.
I hated this movie. I own the original because I thought it was funny. This movie wasn't funny and it had no point. They took the comedy about 10 steps too far and made the movie so stupid it was pathetic. The story didn't even make any sense. What was Luke Wilson thinking?
