Hi!

Sorry to my blog friends, I have not been doing a good job of keeping up with all of your blogs! I promise to stop slacking and catch up on you all soon!! I appreciate you still stopping by here!

Jack is doing better! We just do prn treatments now, which he hasn't needed. His chest xray came back clear - yay! He is as bad as always, so I know he is feeling better! Just has a residual cough left over.

When Jack is bad, Macy feeds into it. She will regress down to a 2 year old as well and just annoy the heck out of me! LOL This always seems to happen when we are in a store, say an Ace Hardware! That store had a ton of Radio Flyer bikes, wagons, everything as soon as we walked in the door. Now what kid is going to want to go to the other side of the store to shop for what mom wants? I had to literally carry Jack around to get what I wanted. I really needed it, so I couldn't just pick him up and leave, unfortunately! He was kicking and yelling and I was so embarrassed! I got what I needed, went to the checkout and let them play while I did that. Jack took a little cruise around the aisle. Then it was time to leave, he didn't want to again. Swoop, up under my arm. 27 pound kid under my left armpit, 15 pound purchase under my right armpit. I'm sure I was a sight!

Remind me again why I wanted kids! Macy was not this bad at almost 3! Jack has made up for all of her good kid ways! But, I love 'em! Went for haircuts after that fiasco and it went surprisingly well. I had to go through the McD's drive thru for a large vanilla iced coffee pick me up!

We got a little break today, heat-wise. I think it only got to 83. It's going to be nice weather for the shore!

Shore = flip flops. Here is a really quick layout I did tonight for Tracy's summertime challenge over at ILove2Create. I used more of the limited edition Rouge de Garance papers that came in the July kit. This layout just fell into place, gotta love that!
OUT FOR PUBLICATION!

I am totally loving my new Cricut Expression! I did the title and the sun on it!! Another cool new toy is my new binder punch thingy from Stampin Up!! Gotta love that loose leaf look these days!

Well, I must have a crumb stuck under my period key, so I will sign off!!

Have a great Friday and weekend!

Awesome Layout. I may want to keep my wishblade now after I offered to sell it last night. It's two years old and I have never even tried to use it. Dum huh?

I really don't miss those days of a screaming kid kicking the heck out of me in the store. At those times, I also wondered why I had kids, lol.
Love, Love the layout. It is just awesome. I really am saving my pennies for the new Cricut. Can't wait. Looks like fun.

Awesome LO!

Ty has his moments when we are out. I have stopped feeling bad about myself when he goes and if someone says anything to me I am like he is 18 months. Goes with the age.

Love the flip-flop LO!!

Hang in there with the toddler phase, it's over all too soon. As the mom of two teenage boys who grunt as a way of communicating, a little tantrum might be nice now and then!! hahahahaha!!

Kristi Smith said...

Oh my that layout is so CUTE!!! Love it!!!

Cole only did that twice!!! Thankgoodness. And I was embarrassed to death! =) Kids will be kids though. I had to carry him out of Subway because he was throwing a fit because they were out of toys in their kid packs . . . I will never forget that day!!! LOL!

Awesome layout! Love the piggy-toes and the flower flip-flop. Every girl needs a little extra pizzazz in the summertime.

I understand about keeping up with the blog thing! I feel the same way! I will keep checking up on you periodically to see what you have been up to.

Very cool page, Rachael! I know exactly what you mean about screaming kids--been there, done that, probably will have to do it again with the youngest, etc. Hang in there! :)
