It is official

Tyler is a full time kindergartner!!! Today was his first full start day, and he will go M-F from 7:45am to 1pm. I was so very proud of him when I dropped him off this morning. They have helpers outside to assist the riders and although they are both awesome, one of them has taken a major liking to Tyler. When we had kindergarten orientation last Thursday, all of the kids were in the gym watching a movie.....well, when we went to get Ty to get ready to leave the one lady saw I had Chase and came up and said "There's that baby!! I asked Tyler if his baby brother was around!" We talked for a few minutes and when we were leaving she said "Bye Tyler! See you Monday!" He really likes her as well!! Well, this morning she was the one who helped him out of the van and she was so excited to see him!! I told him I loved him and to have a good day and he waved back and said "You have a good day too, mommy!" I can't get over how grown up he looked. We really love his teacher and everyone we have met over the last few weeks, which has made him going to school so much more easier...on me!! LOL

Ty took his papers for school pictures (which I am pissed about since they didn't give us hardly any time to get the money in for pics....and the money is due when pics are taken, TOMORROW!!! ) and a form and money for Z and I to join the PTA...i'm officially a PTA mom!! The only downside is there really isn't too much I can do to help physically in the school or classrooms because of Chase, but I will still be involved in decisions and can help with other things which I like.

It's still a rough transition since Ty has been by my side for over 6 years (that includes in-utero LOL) but i'm slowly coming the time i'm adjusted to it i'll have to let Chase go to school!!! AHHHH!!!!!!

Tyler's first day

Ty's first staggered day was last Thursday and he had a blast!!! He loved his teacher and the kids he got to play with. With it being a staggered day, there were only 4 other kids there, all boys. When we picked him up he said he had so much fun and felt like a big boy because he got to buy his lunch. He also did some crafts and got to play in the gym! You could see in his face that he had a good time, and I am so glad. He goes back this Tuesday for another staggered day and then he will officially be in school on the 31st. Here are a few pics of the projects he made!

This was made with a plastic apple and some paint.....

And if you've ever read the children's book "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom", here is the tree he made from that book!!

As you can see, he is very proud of his work........

She has returned.....

The witch is back. Aunt flo is officially here. In a way i'm actually glad to be back to "normal" so soon after having Chase. With Ty I never had the chance to get a normal aunt flo since I had an iud put in a few weeks after he was born, and boy did that mess with my felt like I bled all.the.time. It was better then when I was on the depo shot, THAT was awful. It took me over a year to get my cycle back after getting off of that thing. When the iud came out last year so we could ttc I went right back to normal and we got pregnant the very first cycle. I would honestly love to have another iud inserted until we get better health insurance so Z can get neutered, but I supposedly met my "quota" with the insurance company and they won't cover it. (already vented about that, sorry....)

So, welcome back aunt flo! Photobucket

It's been too long!

Wow, it's been awhile since i've done a post! Chase keeps me so darn busy during the day, and when he is finally napping without me holding him I try to spend time with Ty and get things done around the house.

Things are good here. Tyler is getting SO excited about starting school in 2 weeks. We bought him just about all of the school supplies he needs, and with this weekend being the tax free weekend we're doing some clothes shopping for him as well as getting his back pack. We went to Walmart this morning and got him some really cute tshirts plus a few new pairs of shorts. We only got 5 shirts for now, but that's a start! Once the weather starts to change we'll get him more, but for now he should be good to go. We also got him a back pack that has Spiderman on it. It was so hard finding a back pack that wasn't too big for him and didn't have wheels on it! We're going to go out again this weekend to get him new socks and underwear and he should be done for awhile.

Ohhh, on our trip out this morning I picked up Chase's Halloween costume!!! Walmart had a super cute footed sleeper that has a hood on it and is a even has a little tail on it!! How perfect is that?!?!? It was only $8 and I was worried if I didn't get it now they would be gone. I got size 3-6 months so i'm hoping it will fit him since he'll be 4 months old by then. Speaking of Chase, he did really well with his 2 month appointment yesterday! We didn't get the nurse that did Ty's shots, thank goodness. Here is a post about the appointment.

Let's see.....oh!! A few weeks ago I made my very first peach cobbler and it turned out SO good!!! It wasn't "crumbly" on top like I would have liked but it was still yummy. I can't wait to try an apple cobbler this fall.

Last week Z fell at work and landed on his right side towards the back, cracking a rib. :( He was doing fairly well with it until this past Tuesday morning. Around midnight he was laying on his back and when he went to turn over he heard a "pop" sound and was in major pain. He got up and he was having a really hard time breathing so he decided to go tot he emergency room. they said he did crack it a little more and that it would need 6-8 weeks to heal. He can work, but is limited on what he can do.

Well, that's about all that is going on for now.........tonight for dinner i'm making tacos! Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!
